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 3.5 / 5 stars

I read the description at first, and thought 'A man and a chronically depressed robot stranded on a planet. Why is this starting to sound like The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy?'

Then I watched the video, and I can see why it made front page. Its funny, the animation is smooth, voice acting is great, I was all wrong about it.

The only thing I would say is the cleaning robot's emotions and movements are a bit spontaneous and all over the place, it made his whole thing seem kind of forced. Keep it up, can't wait to see the next video!

F**king AMAZING :) or just amazing don't know which probably because i've been up for twenty hours or so.

Great animations and everything hope to see more espically the somewhat flamboyant robot and the dude who gets into crazy trouble .

Technically, the moon is named Sikara in the flash file. I'll let you figure that one you!
