Wander Over Yonder - The Toddler

In an episode that teaches us just what kind of parenting skills both Wander (Jack McBrayer) and Sylvia (April Winchell) have, Wander discovers a giant baby lost at the mall. Of course which he immediately takes to young Huckleberry Knucklehead and insists he and Sylvia unite the toddler with his parents. While Wander placates Huckleberry (feeding him an unending supply of lollipops and playing peek-a-boo) and Sylvia attempts to lay down some discipline, the pair struggle with both the rambunctious giant toddler and each other as just trying to make it the security station at the other end of the mall becomes a chore.

Before the episode ends Wander will have to learn how to say no, despite his premise that the best way to get kids to do what you want is to let them do what they want, and Sylvia will have to soften her stance. Of course it also doesn't help that they lose Huckleberry Knucklehead in the mall where the overgrown baby's sheer size makes him a danger to all the other shoppers. Eventually the giant toddler is reunited with he's equally tiny parents as Wander's latest good deed may put some momentary strain on his friendship with Sylvia, but everything, as expected, works out okay in the end.
