You guys... Into the Garden is about to air right now... 3:30PM/15:30 on the west coast and if you have a cable subscription with a stream, you can watch the west coast feed.

Could we discuss this? I've never seen it ever but I know /co/ seems to really love it so why not check it out. I want to watch it now since its airing and I can catch it.

Ready? Lets watch. The Old Grist Mill is airing right now!

I made my sister watch this with me last night when it was on. She didn't start paying attention till the Pottsfield citizens showed up and her focus was off and on until then, but she said she really enjoyed it.

My brother walked in during Greg's acid trip episode.

Either way, it was awesome the second time. Probably going to buy the whole series on iTunes soon.

Man the first episode was awesome. Whoever made those background stars and the moon... holy fuck so much effort I really appreciated it even if it was just a few seconds. The artwork seems to be on par with amazing for it so far!

The bird seems very nice too.

The music is another highlight - it becomes more noticeable later, around the third episode on.

Also, when you listen to the background music, notice that the clarinet has the melody in a lot of it. That'll have minor significance later on.

I'm digging the shit out of the backgrounds. Who/which animation house did the drawings for this? Besides the obvious stellar voice acting cast that we already knew about, this is pretty awesome. I'm noting now to keep a highlight of the music and the clarinet. 2nd episode music was awesome and reminded me so much of Milo And Otis... also a fantastic movie with great music.

the series is so comfy as hell and the beginning violin/string music puts me on the verge of tears for some reason... it reminds me of Milo and Otis I think the classical piece they used was something by Franz Liszt I don't remember the name but it seems that this one in particular influenced this series and I love it.

That line was great..

For most cartoons (at least CN Studios and Disney stuff) only the animation itself is outsourced. All the pre-production stuff (backgrounds, storyboard/animatics, etc.) is done in-house.

I'll grant that E3 might be a lowpoint, though it does have 2 great songs. But the Tavern ep is really cool, as is the riverboat one.

Though I can't really agree with you about the tavern, aside from the subtle character development and the end part with the woodsman, there's not much there other than filler
I don't think they even did any kind of segway into the next chapter like they usually do

Almost near the end. Chapter 8 just started.. I think I know from life experience and also with the spolers how the series is going to end. If so, its very interesting how the first few episodes got there.

And that said, I know its almost there and the series is fun but my sleeping pills are kicking in and I'm trying to stay awake. Was Tim Curry that old woman in The Ringing of the Bell?

The Astral Projection scene in Babes in the Wood was fucking amazing especially when you can lucid dream and really have a good night of sleep. I'm pretty sure this is what the series is doing and where its going but I've never seen a cartoon or animation series do anything on the amazingness of sleeping/lucid dreaming/astral projection. Please don't spoil it for me yet if I'm right or for the others.

Also, isn't Babes in the Wood the original book/writing where this came from?

Yup! I thought if anything that would be him. Has been ages since I heard his voice but that would seemed like it!

A girl named Sara broke me as a human being so I could relate to that last episode, breaking and smashing everything, then changing yourself. Even the music and also a terrible incident at a Halloween party

So was episode 9 just an episode of Wirt’s dream and how he could try and fix and reconcile problems in his subconscious? Was that Greg’s dream to try and fix it and why he was ‘dead’ and letting the vines and nature take over him while he slept? He was ‘dead’ inside but his brother’s dream was to try and make him alive again? It also seems weird the time frame vastly changing from the fantasy realm to going back to high school. I had a very similar experience too and it almost made me ‘dead’ but it made me a better person and regardless of all that, sleeping and astral projection is awesome and a good way to overcome problems from the past like that. Maybe if they keep the series going on, they’ll do something that shows Wirt and Greg’s skill of lucid dreaming and astral projection?

The vines wrapped around Wirt because The Beast only has claim to those that give up. After what happened with Beatrice Wirt lost all hope that he would ever get himself and his brother home, so he started to becoming a Edlewood Tree.

Greg switch places with him because he thought it was his fault they were lost, even though the flashback in 9 shows that it was Wirts.

I thought the vines symbolized apathy and death since apathy = death and he was pretending to sleep in the woods since he didn't want to pursue Sara anymore and he'd given up and created that fantasy world they were all living in (for a time) and when they became the heroes of the dreamland. Like in sleep, and even better when you can lucid dream, you become the hero of your own world or you retreat to a world where things are safer and you make a twisted reality to hide or shield any pain in your conscious world and the subconscious realm is a nice place to go (without dying) where you experience a temporary paradise [and wasn't that what the ending was? They all realized it was bullshit and they needed to go back and face their fears so when Beatrice decided to face the scissors, she went back to her family, Wirt decided to face Sara and the fear of himself, and the old man from the mill decided to burn out the lantern thus escaping from sleep/somewhat when you're asleep, you see something that scares you and you know you're having a nightmare, then you turn around realize its all a dream, then face your fear, go lcuid, and you can insert any badass ending (e.g. if you think of having your arm turn into a machine gun it happens then you blast the nightmare away and the rest of your dream is happy until you wake up?]

Thats what I got out of it from loads of personal experience and discussion with others. Plus, I heard the ending was spoilered so many times but I didn't think it would be THAT awesome despite giving the ending away. I started to cry at the very last sequence of the last episode. This was such an amazing series and yet again, /co/'s recommendations are spot on! I'm just glad I was finally able to catch the series and hopefully others too, today who weren't able to see it before!

I need to read The Divine Comedy again.... I remember the 6th was the City of Dis and the dead entombed again... I can't remember the 8th... all I remember was that the 13th layer was the demon with 3 heads of the betrayers and it was cold and snowy from the dragon flapping its wings causing the heat to be extinguished. I see where you're going though and its a great point to think about, especially when the lantern becomes extinguished and The Beast freaks out.

Forgive me if this hasn't been brought up before for this series but yeah, >>68474336 has an excellent point about The Divine Comedy/Dante's Inferno. Going to the store to pick up supplies then I'm going to read it before bed, maybe trigger a lucid dream and fight something from my subconscious as well as get through most, if not all of the book and re-learn each layer of Hell. Here it is if anyone else wants to read it from Project Gutenberg: http://www.gutenberg.org/files/8800/8800-h/8800-h.htm

This series absolutely has parallels to it and seeing all the episodes/chapters, I can see how it all ties in... both began with travelers getting lost in the woods and going through a crazy experience. High five from the universe for you for pointing this out and telling us to rediscover both!

Plus the whole narrative is about Wirt learning to own up to his problems and not blame them on outside forces, like the Woodsman tells him in chapter 1. It'd be a pretty stupid hell narrative if it didn't focus on the crime that put them there at all untill the last second.

It's called a twist. We didn't know that Greg was a sinner. You can learn about yourself from any journey, this one just may have been caused by Greg. It could have pulled him in for his sin and Wirt as well since, as the woodsman said, he is responsible for him.

I thought it was great, but honestly I'd rather leave a good thing be and let 'animated miniseries' be a thing that CN starts to do, allowing there be to be separate, finite stories with unique visual styles than the usual lineup.

If a sequel series were announced, of course I'd be excited, but it always runs the risk not living up to the original/milking it for all it's worth ala AT.

Alright people, Over the Garden Wall 2 is in the works! I spoke to Patrick McHale earlier today, and according to him, CN has approved of a sequel. Not much information is known, but he has revealed that OTGW 2 will focus on Wirt and Greg's relationships with their parents, and Wirt's dad. Much like how OTGW elaborated on their brotherly connections. It will take place five years after the original series.

I dunno when CN will actually reveal it, but it's definitely coming.
