"The Smile" is the second short in the Wander Over Yonder shorts. In this short, Wander's face annoys Hater.

Plot Overview

In the second take of his address to the galaxy, Lord Hater instructs Wander not to talk. His address goes off without a hitch, until he notices Wander's goofy smile. He tells him to shake in fear, but Wander keeps doing goofy faces until Hater tells him he will have to pull the broadcast, which makes Wander shake in fear. Unfortunately, soon after, he goes back to his ridiculous smile and this causes Lord Hater to cut off the transmission.
