This show is hauntingly beautiful. I love how creative it is. It learns all the right lessons from Adventure Time without being derivative of it in any way. I hope they make more. The beast is a metaphor for time and age, right?


Short, sweet, and absolutely gorgeous. It's pretty dark, but not excessively so, and it was paced great. I wish there was a sequel, but there's no way this can be topped by itself.


This mesmerizing, carefully crafted, funny, dark perfect show is available on DVD now.


LOOOVEEEE this show! its so cozy and autumn-y. Just can’t imagine this season without over the garden wall. Very special series <3


Charmingly clever, Over the Garden Wall undershadows its cute presentation with dark tones of surprising depth. Like the world the characters explore, there is more than meets the eye.


Absolutely amazing. Definitely the best cartoon I have seen in years.


This is my second time watching this, and I am even more confused than I was the first time. Such a cutesy and lovely little show that I could watch over and over again.


This show did more in just 10 episodes than most other shows and even most other movies. Beautiful art, haunting atmosphere, amazing design and characters.


Incredible! Beautiful animation, art style, music. Well, I didn't like musical scenes but music in general was awesome in OtGW. I like cute, simple and a little bit naive characters like Greg. It was funny, beautiful and dark. I love it!


People familiar with this animated genre consider this 11 part film to be perfection. I admit I am not qualified or familiar enough with the medium to speak on the qualities a trained eye would see. So the things I can comment on are casting, which is star studded; episode story arch, which weaves a cohesive mini-story in 11 minutes; the integrity of the plot line, which finishes with the beginning of the adventure which, in turn, provides the context and answers questions regarding the peculiarities of the main characters; and, finally, themes, which are many - death, suicide, love, fear, hope and despair - to name but a few. I don't thing the genre is my cup of tea, so my rating is a mere 7.5 (entertaining) out of 10. [Cartoon/Animation, Fantasy, Family]
