    Over the Garden Wall



    Anyone been watching this? It's Cartoon Network's first miniseries and is one of the best animated things I've seen in years. It's by an artist/writer of Adventure Time (Patrick McHale) and is reminiscent of Miyazaki and Merry Melodies. Beautiful animation, great voice cast (Elijah Wood, Melanie Lynskey, Christopher Lloyd), and funny. I'm four episodes in and all ten are up on the Cartoon Network website or can be purchased from amazon, etc.

    Fantastic voice work, art design, score, just 'bout everything.

    I want to note that I love many of the songs, tho a few just don't work musically or lyrically, plus almost all of them are just snippets, really. I'd love a full version of "The Highwayman," for instance.
