Introduction

Wander Over Yonder was a short but sweet animated show that first aired on the Disney Channel on August 16th, 2013. The show then moved over to Disney XD on March 31st, 2014 - where it ran for two seasons. Created by Craig McCracken, one of the masterminds behind the legendary animated 1990's show The Powerpuff Girls, Wander Over Yonder was a very lighthearted and whimsical show that centered around the adventures of a kindly orange alien nomad named Wander (voiced over by Jack McBrayer of 30 Rock and Wreck it Ralph fame) and his trusty steed/best friend Sylvia (voiced over by animation industry veteran April Winchell) as they explore the galaxy together. The show is fondly remembered for its witty humor and slick animation.

Wander Over Yonder Inspired Dog Name Considerations

Wander Over Yonder was considered by many to be a spiritual successor to shows like The Powerpuff Girls and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends - largely in part thanks to the numerous men and women who worked on both shows. Kevin McFarland, a writer for an online newspaper called the "A.V. Club" specifically applauded the show for continuing the "zany legacy" of many old school Cartoon Network shoes from the 1990s and early 2000s. If you're a big fan of shows from those time periods - shows like Johnny Bravo, Dexter's Lab,  and Courage the Cowardly Dog then you may very well enjoy Wonder Over Yonder... possibly to the point of naming your dog after a character from this show to pay homage. 

Another reason you might want to consider naming your dog after a character from Wander Over Yonder would be if you're a big fan of Sci-Fi's and Space Operas - chiefly Star Trek and Star Wars respectively. Wander Over Yonder is chock full of references to both of those franchises, along with references to a few others like Doctor Who and Firefly. Of particular note, both of the show's main antagonists - Lord Hater and Lord Dominator - were both heavily inspired by Darth Vader, the fallen Jedi Master turned Youngling-slaying Sith Lord. In short, if you're a Trekkie or a Star Wars fan, you may enjoy this show as well and consider a name for your pup based on popular characters such as Wander, Duke, Awesome, Major, and of course, Buster!.
