Need to mention the voice talent...

Sam Ramey? Deborah Voigt? Whoever had the idea of using top opera singers as voice talent in an animated series was brilliant. There is no greater villain than Sam Ramey, whether he’s playing satan in an opera or the beast in Over the Garden Wall.

Over the Garden Wall was not for little kids

i think Over the Garden Wall is a amazing show but its not for little kids because its rated TVPG and is very creepy and dark the show is about 2 brothers getting lost in a mythical world theres a episode with pumpkin heads that are people who passed on a bird named Beatrice was going to sell the kids to a witch for slavery a monster called Loren wants to eat the kids theres a character called the highway man sings a dark song and runs his finger across his neck like a knife and a woodsman wants to turn the kids into eldewood trees so he can harvest there souls and greg tries to sacrifice himself to save his brother with that being said Over the Garden Wall is for preteens and teens and i dont reccomend it for anyone under the age of 14
