The Pet

In the wee hours of the morning, today’s episode “The Pet”—written by Ben Joseph and Greg White—was leaked on 4chan /co/. Out of respect for the creators, I held off of posting this until the time of the premiere. If you think this policy is misguided, please let me know in the comments.

When Wander and Sylvia board an abandoned spaceship, they encounter a horrifying alien monster that is set on eating them. While Sylvia sees the wild beast as a threat, Wander takes a liking to the ferocious little monster and tries to train it to be his pet. —Disney Channel press release

YayPonies have now uploaded the iTunes version.

As for the chronology of the leak, the file was created “2013-10-03 08:03:40” (no timezone given), Anonymous posted a link on /co/ at 08:12Z, which is the first public mention I could find of it, then ovarianeruption alerted us on Tumblr. (Someone also put it up on mega.co.nz.) The leaked file is only 78 MiB in size at VGA resolution, so it shows noticeable compression artifacts in addition to being cropped to 4:3.

    Well this was a cool episode! It certainly took the show in a different direction to other episodes, going for more of a dark humor approach which is then contrasted by Wander. The comedic take on the sci-fi horror genre gave me a bit of a Red Dwarf vibe.
    I’ve seen the basic setup of the plot in several cartoons before, with a character adopting an evil monstrous pet blissfully, and then having to give them up, but that didn’t stop WoY’s take on it from being enjoyable and funny.
    So far, every episode has had laugh out loud moments from me, bring on next week’s!

    Oh, and thanks for the website – this has been my one stop source for WoY stuff. I’ll be sure to comment more :)
