Update the first: Thanks everyone for helping us get daily second. And thanks to the Newgrounds staff for the front page! Leave a review and let us know what you thought of the episode, we like reading them!


The Wonders of the Universe is ready to launch! But as fate would have it, Quintin Quasar gets caught up in a depressed Cleaning Bot's plans to flee the ship. Can they survive the barren world they're stranded on?

Episode 3, 'Shanghai Dune' completes the 3 episode Maiden Voyage arc where we introduce you to the world and characters of 'Wonders of the Universe.' The highlight of this episode is no doubt RUT.2, an eccentric Cleaning Robot who finds a little too much joy in his work.

We all pitched in animation in this one, so you might notice a little bit of a change in animation styles throughout the cartoon. We hope it's not too jarring. Most future episodes will be made with one main animator.

We hope you all enjoy! And you'll be happy to know that Episode 4 is already well into the animation stage of production!

Rated 5 / 5 stars


The animation is really good, the graphics are simply beautiful, the "3d effects feeling" that you give us made it so alive, so real, the music, sounds and voices are captivating and funny, really, really good! The story is fantastic and the idea, yet so simple, is very well presented, 5/5 and I couldn't find any real flaws, only the robot voice sometimes didn't match with its excitement maybe?

Keep up the good work guys!


Rated 5 / 5 stars
