Wirt, Greg, and Beatrice the bluebird continue their journey and come upon a school house run by a nice teacher with a stern father. This episode is just so batshit silly, I giggled the entire time. It’s not as dark as the previous episodes but I like how the colors keep that creepy tone instead of the episode’s content.

My only gripe is now ‘Potatoes and Molasses’ is stuck in my head…

Finally Watched It: Over The Garden Wall Episode 2: “Hard Times at the Huskin’ Bee”

A bluebird named Beatrice offers to guide Wirt and Greg to Adelaide of the Pasture (the good woman of the woods) and help them get home.

Again, I gotta comment on how frikkin’ beautiful this cartoon is. Greg seems to have the potential to be that annoying kind of derpy and Beatrice is awesome. As far as plot, this one is creepier than the last one. Those effing pumpkins are a town full of NOPE. It’s a little dark for young kids but for a warped person like me, I chuckled at several points. It is a fun show and I look forward to more!

Also, it’s really amazing shows like this can pack more feeling and fun into 11 minutes than some 3 hour movies. I’ve said that before and I’ll likely say it again because facts are facts.

Finally Watched It: Over the Garden Wall Episode one – The Old Grist Mill

Yet another Cartoon Network show which garnered gasps of horror when asked about it and I say I’ve never seen it (or even heard of it).

Brothers Wirt and Greg are on their way home when they get lost in the woods. In this episode, they end up at some woodman’s cabin and encounter a wolf that follows the candy trail Greg is leaving behind them.

I think Greg is a lot like Steven from Steven Universe; innocent, silly, and positive no matter what’s happening. This series is wonderfully animated and voiced. It’s a quality I’m not quite used to with a lot of the dreck I see on TV these days (I’m looking at you Teen Titans Go and Breadwinners). So far, it’s the right balance of creepy and cute to be enjoyable.

Since the episodes are so short, I don’t think I’ll do an entry for every single one. They’re only about 10 minutes long. Unless you want me to. So, let me know!
