Over the Garden Wall is a miniseries airing every night this week on Cartoon Network, it is also on iTunes and on the CN website. We watched the first 2 chapters last night and were absolutely delighted by it -- the music and art and voices are incredible. (Each episode is only 11 minutes long.) It is silly and creepy and moody, perfect post Halloween viewing.

Your pic link is broken so, based upon your recommendation, I headed over to piratebay and they already have torrents for the first two eps. Am donwloading them right now. First impressions; the character design of the boy is reminiscent of Oblio in The Point! (If you're old enough to remember seeing that (GRIN!))

I managed to catch the first episode on our cable provider's On Demand service. I like the combination of cute and spooky! It reminds me of the best parts of Gravity Falls and various other silly-spooky shows. (And the character designs kind of remind of Kate Beaton's art.)

Yes! I have only caught bits of Gravity Falls, but it always draws me in. I adore Kristen Schaal. So far, we have loved catching Over the Garden Wall every night. I hope it winds up on DVD, I feel like the music will only really be appreciated on re watching. Also, Wirt and Greg ARE Gideon and Toby!

Yes, was going to add that I've watched it and it IS very much like Gravity Falls only in a serial format - that is the plot carries over from one episode to the next. Also unlike Gravity Falls, which knocks you over the head with culture references, OTGW is much more subtle which, for me at least, makes it even more entertaining. PS: Don't know if you fixed the pic or it was my 'puter but the picture is showing up fine now! ^_^

(I haven't watched much, but the boys do -- I thought Gravity Falls does have a season-long story arc?)

Thanks! I did fix it!

I have really enjoyed all of the episodes so far, particularly the music.
