Fresh from outer space and the mind of “The Powerpuff Girls” creator Craig McCracken, ‘Wonder Over Yonder’ is soon to make its debut on Disney Channel. The new series follows the space adventures of cheerful vagabond Wander and his faithful equine companion Sylvia. Dogging the colorful duo are villains Lord Hater and his cycloptic second-in-command, General Peepers. The art is bright and expressive with character designs that vaguely resemble the whimsical creatures seen in the world of Dr. Seuss, but with a distinct McCracken influence, which has captured the interest of fans.
Along with a fun art direction, the cast includes several big name voice actors. The list includes Jack McBrayer of ’30 Rock’ fame, Tom Kenny, best known for his work as the voice of Spongebob Squarepants, and April Winchell and Keith Ferguson, both experienced voice actors who have worked in over 100 different titles. With such a stellar team behind it, ‘Wander Over Yonder’ may just be an out-of-this-world hit in the making. The first episode will air on Disney Channel Friday 13th at 8:00 p.m.
