The Watchdogs are the recurring antagonists of the 2013 Disney television series Wander Over Yonder.
The name "Watchdog" refers to an anthropomorphic being with a big eyeball on its head. They work for Lord Hater and are responsible for conquering every planet. The most notable members are Peepers and Westley. Outside of Peepers, there have been 12 named Watchdogs so far.
The Watchdogs are short creatures with eyeballs attached to their heads. Though these creatures lack mouths or define feature to save for a single cyclops, their eyeballs have red irises and black pupils inside. Like their worker Lord Hater, they and Peepers have a single lightning bolt on their helmets. They are all dressed in black and red uniforms.
The Watchdogs serve Lord Hater to conquer every planet in the Yonder Galaxy in most episodes until Wander keeps showing up and harass them with friendly manners, which lead them to their incompetence of Hater's plans such as games, picnics, or other distractions made by Wander.
Unlike Peepers, the Watchdogs are incompetent, dim-witted, and too gullible whenever they encounter Wander and get distracted during Hater's conquest. Despite their stupidity, the Watchdogs still have intelligence and are on the manhunt to capture Wander and Sylvia so they won't foil Hater's plans ever again.
- Commander Peepers: General of Watchdogs, scientist and Hater's second-in-command. He were also in Hater's post during a time when he let the conquests and went with Emperor Awesome in order to be a "cool guy".

- Moose: A strong and silent Watchdog, moose makes a memorable, although short, appearance during and only during the opening of "The Little Guy" where he punches Westley when he goes to wake him up. Although his uniform is practically the same as the rest, he's more muscular than the average Watchdog and pretty strong too, since he managed to hit Westley strong enough to send him flying to a wall. So far, he's the second muscular Watchdog in the show since the first one is Peepers.
- Bob: A Watchdog who seems to be a little bit timid and shy. He had his name first confirmed in "The Brainstorm", where he said he wanted lunch after saying sandwiches during one of Peepers hypothetical scenarios. He is the first named watchdog not to have a unique appearance, his design being identical to the rest of the Watchdogs.

Because of his tears the camera on his head got destroyed and lost contact with Lord Hater and Commander Peepers. In the end credits, he gets find by Lord Dominator and runs away in fear.
