Director, writer, and storyboard artist Eddie Trigueros just published a 216-page deleted scene from “The Picnic” on his blog. The scenes starts at the point where Commander Peepers presents Lord Hater with the “Defense Protocol Epsilon Exo Ninety Seven Three Tesseract” gloves, shows the transformations of Lord Hater and Emperor Awesome in much detail, and ends right at the start of their fight.
Here is a scene that was cut out of “The Picnic”, originally Hater and Emperor Awesome had a big transformation scene.
That the number of pages is identical to the number of digits in the elusive (and ambiguous) number in the movie Pi is a factoid that I would attribute to coincidence, but your mileage may vary.

I don’t have the experience to assess precisely how significant this is, but read for yourselves:
The children’s cabler’s sneak peek at Craig McCracken’s new series Wander Over Yonder at 9 p.m., was Friday’s #2 TV telecast across Kids 2-11 (1.9 million/4.8 rating), Kids 6-11 (1.5 million/6.2 rating) and Tweens 9-14 (1.0 million/4.3 rating) and was cable TV’s #2 telecast in Prime in Total Viewers (2.9 million).

This is not fan art—although the artist may well be a fan of the show—but the actual character design for Emperor Awesome and his Tyrannosaurus rex, createdbyBryan Arnett. (You can also find him in my post on the “The Picnic” credits.)
Emperor Awesome pre-designs and final turn around. After a lot of revisions for this character Craig McCracken pulled it all together and did the final 3/4 front design. I did the other poses.
Curiously, it says “104” in several file names, which looks like an episode number. Was “The Picnic” originally 104 instead of 102a? Did they already adhere to the a/b suffix scheme during production? Maybe I should just ask.

A few tidbits about the premiere party yesterday have come to light, a premiere party of the Wander Over Yonder crew.
The first is the first picture above that yesterday already circulated on Tumblr and 4chan, albeit then only as photo of a print; second, April Winchell got a cool Wander Over Yonder hoodie; and third, the photo you see above—courtesy Sam Riegel a.k.a. Emperor Awesome—is one of the premiere screening the whole team enjoyed.
Now, let me quote David Gemmill. He did one board for the show before he left, and his job must’ve been stressful, as he mentioned in a Tumblr post he since deleted. His posts are not usually very positive, so this one is doubly significant. (Link mine.)
You all like that WOY sneak peak?
Eddie Trigueros is awesome and should be a household name. He’s my favorite working cartoonist today. All the crazy poses, hilarious acting and all that it’s all him. He posed the shizz out of that cartoon and it turned out great. Appreciate all the work he put into it. :)
Finally, Sylvia’s species is spelled “zbornak,” according to April Winchell. It seems like that name carries some sort of significance that eludes me.

The episode “The Picnic” that aired yesterday revealed a long list of names of many of the people we have to thank for the show!
I already introduced you to many of them in more depth in my previous posts tagged “Cast and Crew,” but here is another overview of the various member of the crew and their roles expanded based on the credits, and this time in (a rather naive) alphabetical order. I’ve also given some websites and social media outlets in parentheses, so you can tell them how awesome they are.
