Over the Garden Wall Starts Nov 3
The story is of two young boys, an older brother Wirt and younger sibling Greg, lost in the woods befuddled with strange creatures and characters. They are unlikable and annoying like many of the characters they encounter. The stories seems overly darker than usual with the horrible thoughts of Wirt and the playful annoyance of Greg prodding at you as though saying, "There a strange pair, aren't they' and you answer, "No."
It's an attempt at Adventure Time that fails, though it's not an attempt at that show it is very similar do to the nature of those involved.
The animation will remind you of drawings found in fairly tales and old wood cuttings depciting stories.
The start of the first episode showed off a strange cast of characters as though showing what people did before the story happened. It's unsettling, making me believe it to all be a dream or in a worse fashion that all the cast is dead and in some sort of limbo.
Over the Garden Wall Starts Nov 3 on Cartoon Network and will air for five consecutive nights.
