WANDER AT COMIC CON!!! This THURSDAY JULY 24th from 2:00 to 3:00 in room 25ABC please join me, April Winchell, Tom Kenny, and Jack McBrayer (in his first Con appearance!) at DisneyXD’S WANDER OVER YONDER PANEL! We’ll be talking about and showing some exclusive clips from what’s coming up in Season 1, giving you a bit of insight into Season 2 and maybe you may even get to hear from Wander, Sylvia, and Commander Peepers themselves! Also you’ll get a chance to ask us any questions you may have about the show.
Immediately following the panel Jack, April, and I will be signing in room AA05. There, you can show everyone at the Con your love for love- or your love for hate- or your hate for love- or your hate for hate- with these limited edition, exclusive reversable Wander/Hater hats!
Looking forward to seeing you all!
I haven’t blogged a lot of Wander Over Yonder stuff, but I’m pretty proud of how these two turned out, so I wanted to plug them.
The Night and The Day are two eleven minute episodes that aired together. They have opposite plots, opposite protagonists, and, if you get two beers in me because you like it when I sound like a jerky freshman English major, opposite themes. But that’s not even the cool part! The cool part is, played back to back, they form a perfect loop. The plots stand alone but also lead right into each other. You could play both of them chicken-or-egg-style until you see the secret Masonic messages I hid in them. (Not really.) (Maybe?)
My other favorite part is how the idea came about: When I was still working on the show, back in 2012 because cartoons take forever, production and writing were both way behind. We were feeling boxed in by having to think of simple episodes that wouldn’t put a strain on the artists and Craig, frustrated, said we should just do an episode where the characters napped for eleven minutes straight. “The Nap.” We all half-laughed, because that is what you do when your boss makes an unhelpful suggestion. But then he said, no, seriously, we should do that. So we did.
If you want to check them out, you can watch them on Amazon or iTunes.
There, I gif’d the good parts :,D
Voice actress, writer, advertiser, radio personality. Snarky blue dinosaur alien. All of these titles can be lauded on today’s interview subject. Derpy News is proud to present a short interview with April Winchell, who voices Sylvia in the Disney cartoon Wander Over Yonder. You can get…
So, I went and searched deep into the SonoftheBronx’s twitter (where they post ratings by request) to try and find the viewer numbers for some of those new Wander episodes. This is when they first debuted on DXD back in June:
The Nice Guy/The Timebomb: 374k
The Tourist : 417k
Keep in mind though that a lot of kids were probably still in school when these aired, so i’m wondering if the rest of the new episodes got higher numbers.
And apparently The Hero and The Birthday Boy (when they aired last Friday on Disney Channel) brought in 1.595 million, which sounds okay…buuut it looks like it might’ve been the only show that night that didn’t bring in over 2 million. But i’m also not sure how well PaF did.
I just wonder how many e-mails it would take of people asking for Wander merch for Disney to get the idea. Hundreds? Thousands? Disney’s a huge company so it’s hard to tell what’s “a lot” to them.
