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!

Click on the ship in the main menu. See what you did there :3

Can you bring back SFTU-9000? I find him a lot more entertaining than the clean-bot.

Toonwerks responds:

He'll be back in Episode 4! BUT, he is in the hidden scene in this movie. Did you explore the main menu thoroughly?

You guys need to watch cartoons or something not creative at all.
i like how you made the escape capsil project right through Neptune looking planet, i saw what you did there.... i didn't like it. i mean the animation is good, but... kill your writer its like he tried so hard to make shit... i mean stick with the dick jokes cuz this crap makes my inspiration hurt like a bitch, and its sci fi for crying out loud. you get a one for such dry hummer. and one percent of one percent writing for creating such crappy characters.

Absolutely brilliant, it totally worth the wait, now lets hope it doesn't take as long, curious to find out what Nova doesn't hate.
