"The Funk" is an episode of Wander Over Yonder.


An invasion to a planet is put on hold when Lord Hater is bored with all the same things they do. Peepers attempts to cheer him up with various methods to get him back to his usual self, unaware that Hater will soon be taught a lesson because of this.

Episode Summary

Commander Peepers and the other Watchdogs invade a planet called Cluckon and Peepers introduces Lord Hater with a huge entrance. He does it twice and Hater is still not there. Peepers then comes inside Hater's room and he is on his bed covered in a blanket. He tells Peepers (he starts mumbling for a few times) that he's not in the feeling for being evil anymore.

Commander Peepers commands all the watchdogs to come back into the ship and tell the Cluckon citizens (which are chickens) that they are still almost conquered, which surprises them. Peepers and the watchdogs do many things to cheer Hater up (blowing up a moon, terrorizing people, awaking demons, etc) but all their attempts fail. Later, Lord Hater tells Peepers that when he first started wanting to be evil when he used to just pick on the "weak and defenseless", but is now tired of his new responsibilities and others things. Peepers soon thinks of an idea that will likely get Hater to be evil again.

He fixes up Hater's old van and brings him at night to these unusual-looking and seemingly dumb aliens called Mooplexians. Hater and Peepers then do many immature pranks on them (spitballs, water bucket trick, loogies, etc). In the morning, Lord Hater feels evil again and shouts out the same introduction Commander Peepers said earlier this episode and has his big ego again. The aliens then fly up to the skies and one of them uses their stems to connect it to Lord Haters and Commander Peepers heads.

He tells them that they are have high intelligence, will forever learn endless knowledge, and spend their real lives in their minds. They flick Hater and Peepers into the van and go back into their brainless states. Wander and Sylvia arrive on their planet, since Wander seeks their wisdom, but Sylvia is in disbelief in how stupid they seem.


End Credits

Lord Hater and Peepers are in Hater's room on his bed still traumatized from their experience with the Mooplexians.


Cluckon 1: I don't get it.
Watchdog 1: Oh, our leader, Lord Hater was supposed to show up and act all evil and stuff but—
(The Watchdog gets zapped by Peepers.)

Peepers: Sir, you missed your cue. The Cluckons won't surrender without you.
Hater: So? What's the point anyway?
Peepers: What's the point?! Sir, if Cluckon falls, we'll control all of the Zegma System! All of it! Just like we've always dreamed of doing!
Hater: (mumbling) 'm nt flng t nymr.
Peepers: You're peeling apples to the core?
Hater: (mumbling) 'm nt flng t nymr.
Peepers: Stealing pennies from the store?
Hater: (mumbling) 'm nt flng t nymr!
Peepers: Earring fell on the floor?
Hater: I SAID I'M NOT FEELING IT ANYMORE!!! Evil used to be all RAAARRR, YEAH, WOO! Now, it's just Know what I mean?

Mooplexian: We tire of the sense of superiority you seem to garner from picking on the physical shells that we happen to inhabit. Perhaps you need to see just how insignificant your so-called "greatness" really is. Little do you know that we have evolved beyond impressive corporeal forms. Our real lives are spent in our minds. We sail the seas of cosmic consciousness, a vast and endless ocean of knowledge, in which you are nothing more than a minuscule molecule drowning in misunderstanding. Now back in your van, sad little man, and never forget how you, Lord Hater, are so not the greatest in all the galaxy. Now be off with you.

Wander: Oh, great and noble Mooplexians, we humble ourselves in the presence of your all-knowing wisdom. (no response)

Sylvia: Seriously? We came all this way to see these guys?
Wander: (gets Sylvia to kneel) Ultimate cosmic knowledge comes in all shapes and sizes. (to the Mooplexians) Forgive her! She knows not what she does.

Sylvia: So how long do we have to stay down here?

Background Information

  • "Funk" is defined as a state of severe depression, which fits well with Hater's mood throughout the episode.


  • Wander and Sylvia are restricted to 30-second cameos at the end of the episode. This is the first episode to completely focus on Lord Hater and Peepers and have Wander be a minor character.
  • This episode gives another name of one of the watchdogs: Greg.
  • Fourth episode that is from the point of view of someone other than Wander and Sylvia for the majority of the time. ("The Bounty", "The Brainstorm", "The Gift 2: The Giftening").
  • Second time Hater refers to himself as "The Greatest in All the Galaxy". ("The Greatest")
  • Fourth episode where Sylvia appears but her name is not said ("The Bad Guy", "The Ball", "The Gift 2: The Giftening"). This is also the first episode where Wander appears but his name is not said, not counting the song played in "The Nice Guy".

  • Luke 23:34 - Wander references the last words of Jesus Christ at the cross when he says, "Forgive her. She knows not what she does."
  • Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends - Lord Hater and Peepers play the same prank that Bloo plays on Mac's mother and Terrance in the episode "Infernal Slumber", by spraying shaving cream into a sleeping person's hand, then tickling their nose, making them cover their face in the cream.
