Wander Over Yonder - The Matchmaker

In an episode that pits Wander (Jack McBrayer) against Sylvia (April Winchell), Sylvia tries her best to distract Wander from his plans to bring Lord Hater (Keith Ferguson) and Lord Dominator (Noël Wells) together. After discovering a love note Hater wrote but was too embarrassed to send, Wander takes it on himself to make sure Dominator gets the message. "The Matchmaker" sets a record for both the number of title cards (several featuring the episode's actual title, several for Sylvia's various distractions, and a collection of other based on various alternative versions of the characters after the pair go through the Interdimensional Door) and references to previous episodes in a single episode. And, of course, it wouldn't be an episode without a late gag and lesson for Sylvia where she learns to trust her best friend despite not believing in his plan to help the two villains fall in love. All-in-all, very entertaining.
