Cartoon Network Gets Ready to Peek Over the Garden Wall
This coming November, Cartoon Network will be premiering their first animated miniseries, Over the Garden Wall, over five consecutive nights starting on Monday, November 3 at 7 pm ET/PT. The ten-episode mystery adventure mini-series is created by Patrick McHale (Adventure Time) and features the voices of Elijah Wood (Lord of the Rings Trilogy), Melanie Lynskey (Two and a Half Men) and Collin Dean (The War At Home) and is produced by Cartoon Network Studios.
Over the Garden Wall focuses on the story of two brothers – Wirt and Greg, who find themselves lost in a strange forest adrift in time, called the Unknown. In order to find their way back home, the two brothers must travel across this strange and unfamiliar land, encountering surprises and obstacles along the way.
Over The Garden Wall is based upon McHale’s award-winning short, Tome of the Unknown, which took home the Bruce Corwin Award for Best Animated Short at the 2014 Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Produced under Cartoon Network’s prolific shorts program, Tome of the Unknown joins an illustrious list of animated shorts to become fully produced series on Cartoon Network (Regular Show, Steven Universe, Uncle Grandpa, Clarence, and the recently greenlit We Bare Bears).
