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.
This week the Disney Channel released an early look at the Wander Over Yonder title sequence. Featuring a kind of crazy original theme song by Two Man Gentleman Band (whose Andy Bean also composes the series' music), the intro is a frenzy of textured, otherworldly imagery and gradient-heavy color, signifying an ambitious step up from McCracken's typically flatter palette and rendering style.
