Wander Over Yonder - The Brainstorm

Given the number of times Wander (Jack McBrayer) and Sylvia (April Winchell) have ruined their plans, Peepers (Tom Kenny) struggles with selling Lord Hater (Keith Ferguson) on any future course of action. For the entire episode no matter how deliberate and thorough a plan of world domination Peepers presents, Hater always finds a way to dismiss it by guessing various ways in which Wander will ruin yet another conquest.

While focusing on the idea of just how much Wander has gotten into Lord Hater's head, "The Lonely Planet" presents several versions of the villain's forces attempting to take over a planet, all easily foiled by Wander. The punchline comes in the very last scene where despite Peepers finally instilling some confidence back into Lord Hater the episode ends with Wander inexplicable victory with his banjo and a pretty sweet iconic nod to the famous Star Wars poster (which the series has used a less detailed version of before in promotional materials).
