Wander Over Yonder - The Fremergency Fronfract

It took almost no time at all for "The Fremergency Fronfract" to become one of my favorite episodes of Wander Over Yonder. Opening with drugged Lord Hater (Keith Ferguson) accidentally giving Wander's (Jack McBrayer) name to the dentist as hiss emergency contact, the entire episode features a loopy Hater hanging out with Wander and Sylvia (April Winchell) and becoming the friend Wander always knew he could be with a trip to an arcade Sylvia is all too happy to capture via Instagram.

Wander's various reaction reaction shots to Hater finally giving into the wacky and zany are worth watching the episode all by themselves (and Hater's odd behavior is equally amusing). Sadly the fun must eventually end as Wander realizes that Hater must be returned to his ship before the effects of the Electric Squid's brain-zapping wear-off in a scene which forces Wander to show his friend tough love and kick the puppy to the curb causing both characters to weep. Although Hater eventually regains his senses it isn't before Wander's influence causes the villain to fire on his own troops rather than allow the invasion of a planet and people he grew to care for (if only for a few hours). Maybe there is some good deep, deep, deep, deep down in him after all.
