Critic Reviews for Over the Garden Wall Season 1

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (4)

The desire to get through the entire series immediately to discover the brothers' ultimate fate will likely result in your kids' first binge-watch.

This miniseries thus feels like an admirable experiment, but a bit of a tweener -- one that lacks the heft to sustain the five-night commitment.

Top Critic

The episodes knit into a narrative, and the miniseries' sassy modern side mitigates its fairy-tale wistfulness.

Nov 14, 2014 | Full Review…

While Over the Garden Wall only rarely offers actually scary creatures, its core story is unnerving in a way that will hang with you.

Oct 30, 2020 | Full Review…

It's simultaneously kooky and solemn, haunting and extremely silly. The animation is startlingly lovely.

Oct 20, 2020 | Full Review…

While the animation doesn't reach the quality of its contemporaries like Steven Universe or Adventure Time, Over the Garden Wall's fairly unique feel, its vocal performances and its writing more than make up for these small shortcomings.

Feb 7, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

An absolutely unique series, full of details that are discovered successively. [Full Review in Spanish]

Jul 19, 2019 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

It's so original in every way.

Apr 26, 2019 | Rating: A+ | Full Review…

Garden Wall is a laugh riot-and big-hearted to boot.

Oct 31, 2018 | Full Review…

If you enjoy the humor of shows like Adventure Time, you'll probably find Over the Garden Wall hilarious as well.

Oct 29, 2018 | Full Review…

Starring the voice talents of Elijah Wood, Melanie Lynskey, and Christopher Lloyd, it's an artful fantasy for all ages.

Aug 31, 2018 | Full Review…

Whimsical, adventurous tale has some scary moments, too.

    Amazing show, very heartwarming but at the same time with an eerie and old feel. On my first viewing, I felt incredibly nostalgic even though I had never seen it before. Overall, a true masterpiece.

    While it warms you up, it will also give you spooky vibes :') The musical style of the series also adds a nice atmosphere. Watch this series in Fall. Into the Unknown!!

    I really enjoyed how this cartoon while intended for a younger audience was just as enjoyable as an older person and also didn't hold back on its message or death related content for kids, sort of like A Series of Unfortunate Events which I loved as a kid for that reason.
