Wander Over Yonder - The Birthday Boy

Playing on the running gag of the series that Wander (Jack McBrayer) doesn't understand that Lord Hater (Keith Ferguson) really, really doesn't like him, "Birthday Boy" finds Wander and Sylvia (April Winchell) invited to Hater's birthday party inside the villain's new Doom Arena as a surprise by Peepers (Tom Kenny) in an attempt to try and please his lord.

Momentarily happy, Hater throws everything he can at the cartoon's hero who decides the only thing wrong with Lord Hater is that he isn't properly enjoying his birthday and sets out to rectify the issue (not realizing that his death is the only thing that would properly please him). Wander's shenanigans and attempts to liven-up the party only further frustrate Lord Hater whose men (and eventually himself) begin taking the full brunt of the Doom Arena's various force.

Although Lord Hater doesn't get his birthday wish, Wander is eventually successful in putting smile on the villain's face (although more from Hater's psychotic break than any true happiness) with a ridiculous closing number he puts on with the help of Sylvia and all of the Watchdogs in attendance.
