Over the Garden Wall

This is a 10 part mini series on Cartoon Network... and it's weird.

Two brothers are in a strange land of the Unknown. They befriend a talking bird and travel through the land trying to get home, and being way of the beast. Along the way they have a few adventures, and help isn't always what it seems. Until at the end, we find out that... well, there still isn't a good explanation for it, but we can handwave it away.

The art style is very cartoon, with some moments moreso than others (although that is an obvious homage). It's also funny... and very dark at moments. Especially when you know what's going on, it's really dark. Still... it's for the kids?

Voice talent wise, we have Elijah Wood, Christopher Lloyd, John Cleese, Tim Curry, and no doubt other famous people I should have recognised. While only ten episodes, it's very well done.

And I wouldn't say that you can check it out for yourself if you go here.
