    Just so you know, it's a show created by the legendary minds of Craig McCracken and Lauren Faust! The basic plot is about a furry, orange alien named, you guessed it, Wander and his best Zbornak buddy, Sylvia. Sometimes, they run into the evil and insecure tyrant, Lord Hater, or the flirty shark- headed YA Emperor Awesome. Wander and Sylvia are often seen exploring the universe and meeting new friends.
