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

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.

Whimsical, adventurous tale has some scary moments, too.

Nov 18, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

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.

[Creator Patrick McHale] draws a world that you won't mind spending time in.

    Muy buena, la recomiendo

    An amazing little series with some great art and powerful storytelling
  • Jan 09, 2019
    Over the Garden Wall is a well-paced mini series with tons of mystery and world building, without ignoring things like character development. It is one of the best shows to ever have come out of Cartoon Network.

    That was weird and awesome!
  • Nov 06, 2018
    Creative and creepy in the best of ways. Only improvement could have been to make it more unnerving.
  • Oct 11, 2018
    A delightful adventure of a miniseries. The silliness and humour you would expect from adventure time, but the dark nature you would normally associate with a Goya painting.

    A beautiful miniseries that to this day 4 years on I still watch as a tradition. Amazing atmosphere paired with spectacular music. Thank you Cartoon Network for what to me was an instant classic.

    it was so deep and so dark
  • Jan 19, 2018
    Beautiful, artistic, and filled with passion.

    Over the Garden Wall has beautiful animation and adorable but realistic characters. The series has the feel of 19th century books like The Wizard of Oz or Alice in Wonderland where normal children have to navigate an alternate magical world populated by bizarre characters. There are subtle clues that their whimsical world has a darker undertone that older viewers can appreciate. There are occasional scary moments where the kids confront the villains in the Unknown Wood, but they are always balanced by cute comical moments. The only truly sad thing is that the entire series is only 10 episodes long.
