Wander Over Yonder - The Breakfast

Structured entirely in split-screen, "The Breakfast" follows an everyday morning for both Wander (Jack McBrayer) and Lord Hater (Keith Ferguson) as each wakes and prepares breakfast. In Wander's case he's most concerned with providing a good breakfast for Sylvia (April Winchell) when she wakes while Hater, annoyed with Peepers' (Tom Kenny) inability to make the breakfast he wants, sets out to make his own.

"The Breakfast" may be a single-joke episode but that's hardly a criticism for a 10-minute cartoon (especially if that joke is told well). While that might not leave much to discuss specifically (other than seeing Hater in the shower without his cloak for the first time) the episode still delivers plenty of fun. The structure and different obstacles of each character offer an amusingly different type of story, and the conclusion (as Hater throws away the delicious breakfast he finds after he discovers Wander made it for him) fits well into the well-established relationship of the pair.
