Watching this since its debut

My sons have been watching Wander over Yonder, sanjay and craig, adventure time, regular show, clarence, uncle grandpa, 'gumball', Gravity Falls, etc, etc for a long time. I have DVR'ed several episodes of several childrens shows and embarked on an experiment to watch them all. And I did so. I once believed these shows were all harmless and created equal. I also know my child could be watching Family Guy or playing Grand Theft Auto. Its also relevant that the days of childrens shows have changed drastically and dramatically. Wander over Yonder is near the same level as Amazing world of Gumball. Its silly, goofy, funny, and entertaining. They have fun and for the most part without hurting anyone. Your childs maturity and intelligence level should be a factor as well. However, mostly this is a great show for kids. The slight social or realistic imperfections are so miniscule that its easy to overlook. I really enjoyed the story and some of the humor, definitely much better viewing experience than Uncle Grandpa. Thanks

My new favorite...

As parents we all have shows we enjoy watching that our kids like. THIS is my new favorite! The star, Wander, is the most insanely optimistic little hero! He uses the "power of love" to save people, always wants to do what's right despite the difficulties and has hilarious situations where he insists on doing good in an evil space world

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (15):
Kids say (39):

Emmy winner Craig McCracken (The Powerpuff Girls, Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends) introduces a new cast of comical characters in Wander Over Yonder. It's a show that's very comfortable in its role and doesn't try too hard; instead, it generates laughs in opposing personalities, nonstop action, and silly scenarios, all of which will appeal to kids.

By far the show's greatest asset is the lovable yokel, Wander, whose unwavering positive attitude in the face of Hater's impatience will amuse older viewers as well.
