We've been looking forward to Powerpuff Girls creator Craig McCracken's new animated series Wander Over Yonder since it was first announced early last year. The show, McCracken's first since Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends concluded in 2009, follows the space-faring adventures of an uncommonly cheerful alien called Wander and his distinctly downbeat sidekick Sylvia as they travel the universe fighting the forces of hatred -- embodied by the villainous Lord Hater. 30 Rock's Jack McBrayer voices the title role.

As much as it focused on the big names like Superman and Batman, one of the best things about shows like Justice League Unlimited was getting to see a spotlight on some of the more obscure characters, and a series of shorts built on that same idea, including a return of the animated Teen Titans, is pretty exciting.
Back in December, we threw the spotlight onto a set of amazing backgrounds created for the Masters of the Universe cartoon, proving that while they're often literally overshadowed by other aspects of animation, there's an incredible amount of detail work that goes into backgrounds that always makes them worth a look. That's why I was pretty excited when I ran across a set of incredible pieces of concept art from the Int
