Wander Over Yonder - The Ball

Taking some time off at a luxurious relaxatorium on Balzaria 9, Wander (Jack McBrayer) and Sylvia's (April Winchell) vacation is cut short by the return of the dreaded Buster. Eight times previously the giant space dog has appeared to destroy the terraformed worlds of the fleas which, from his perspective, look like tennis balls.

With no other possible home for the fleas to reach before running out of both food and gas, Wander refuses to let the zen populace flee and comes up with several plans to save the world. Sadly, neither the giant bone launched into space, nor the legion of dog whistles, nor the mountains of garbage licked up by the dog are enough to force Buster to leave.

Even without the usual fun of the show's arch-villain, "The Ball" delivers an enjoyable bizarre adventure that even includes the obvious pun as Wander comes up with one last-ditch plan after the world is destroyed and finds the fleas the perfect home where they needn't worry about Buster ever again.
