OCTOBER: Over the Garden Wall – Patrick McHale
10/19/2019 @ 7:00pm
What can we say about Over the Garden Wall that hasn’t already been said? Patrick McHale’s miniseries is a modern masterpiece, a funny, moving, creepy, whimsical journey through classic Americana.
Over the Garden Wall is probably the closest North American animation has come to capturing the feel of a Miyazaki film, using the warmth and darkness of classic Americana and folklore to create a one-of-a-kind blend of comedy, adventure and horror. Costumes are strongly encouraged, and may even be rewarded.

From The AV Club:
“With such a perfect blend of mood, atmosphere, story, and characterization, Over the Garden Wall’s 10-episode run will leave you wanting more, but like every great fairy tale, it’s a story that knows when it’s over.”.”
From Agents of Geek:
“The greatest thing Cartoon Network has ever produced”
