Still from Over the Garden Wall

Saturday MASS (Monthly Animation Screening Series) is an ongoing program screening all of your favorite animated features from around the world. Presented by Quickdraw Animation Society.

==Saturday MASS: October 19 2019 ==
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”
