"The Killjoy" is the third short in the Wander Over Yonder shorts. In this short, Peepers catches Hater and Wander being silly.

Plot Overview

In the midst of the third take of Lord Hater's address to the galaxy, Commander Peepers asks him what he is doing. Peepers asks if he's trying to destroy Wander again, which Hater denies, until he accidentally pushes the button on the podium lowering Wander. Hater attempts to raise Wander back up, but he is already caught. Peepers tells his superior that he needs to focus on conquering planets before other villains do so. Hater then tells Peepers that he already told everyone that he was going to destroy Wander, and if he doesn't follow through, he will appear weak. Peepers says under his breath that it's a little late for that. After a static cut, we see Hater about to destroy both Wander and Peepers while Peepers is begging to destroy Wander instead of him.


  • Wander calls Peepers "C-Peeps", a nickname that Hater previously called him in "The Gift 2: The Giftening". Normally, he would call him "Mr. Peepers."
  • A "killjoy" is someone who destroys someone else's happiness, like what Peepers does to Hater in this short.
  • It's revealed in the middle of the episode that the last two ending screens from the previously mentioned shorts originated from this one.


  • Close-captioning errors:
    • When Wander calls Peepers "C-Peeps", the captions misspell it as "Seapeeps".
    • In addition, when Hater tells Peepers he's right about conquering more planets before other villains do, the captions don't have the first "P" in Peepers' name capitalized.
