Wander Over Yonder - The It

Lord Hater's (Keith Ferguson) focus at moving up the Galactic Villain Leaderboard and claiming the title of the greatest villain in the galaxy quickly fades thanks to the arrival of Wander (Jack McBrayer) who with two simple words derails the entire workings on-board the ship: "You're It!" As Hater becomes increasingly obsessed with the impromptu game of tag life aboard the ship turns into chaos as none of the Watchdogs will allow their leader to tag them.

With a simple premise "The It" proves to be a ridiculous amount of fun as Hater escalates things quickly from attempting to sneakily tag one of his Watchdogs to chasing the entire crew around the ship. The episode also has a fun pop-culture reference with Hater getting temporarily trapped in "Coldburnite" and takes an enjoyable turn when Commander Peepers (Tom Kenny) finds a way to turn his master's rage and one-track mind to the army's advantage by sending the tag-obsessed villain out to conquer more and more words slowly gaining some ground on the leaderboard (at least until he finally successfully tags someone else).
