"Lead through the mist by the milk-light of moon, all that was lost is revealed..."

The moment you hear this song, you're drawn into the mystery of the Unknown and follow the journey of Wirt and Greg, two brothers who find themselves lost in the woods.

I followed this miniseries when it was initially broadcast on Cartoon Network, and I urge you to go in completely blind. Don't read any synopsis of the ten episodes, don't look up any images or spoilers. Don't even read past this post--just go in blind. The fun is in the mystery of the world. I will say that you should prepare for some frights, but it's all part of the atmosphere.

I found the best time to watch this show around October/November, just as Halloween has settled in OR as it lingers and autumn's chill turns into what will be the bite of winter. Have a night-in with a blanket and a cup of your favorite hot drink to amp up the experience--the total run time is about the same as a feature film, so you won't be sitting for too long.

Beautifully-animated, Emmy-winning miniseries that combines heartfelt emotion and haunting creepiness. For fans of "Gravity Falls" who crave something that's more lyrical, a tad darker, and just as clever. That's a rock fact! Not for younger kids, as certain episodes may be too terrifying.

So the only reason I ever started watching this was because my cousin recommended it and everything, but mostly because Elijah Wood is in it and I love him!! But I love this show SO MUCH!!! I thought it was going to be a cheesy kids show but it's actually amazing! It's surprisingly deep and meaningful and not cheesy at all. Sure, it's a little strange and it's a cartoon, but I seriously recommend this to you! WATCH. IT.
It's probably not good for younger kids to watch, it can be a little terrifying, particularly episode seven, The Ringing of the Bell. I watched it late at night and will forever regret it.
But you should really watch it, it's one of the best shows I've ever watched and I'll definitely be watching it again very soon.

pretty damn funny. I really enjoyed it. Maybe not perfect 5 stars for me...but what the heck why not?

A fantastic animated miniseries that should become a Halloween staple. Fantastic stuff from Elijah Wood and Christopher Lloyd. I've described this one as O Brother Where Art Thou for kids (but more mature kids, because this one is scary). Bizarre fantasy elements, a neat time period, spooky skeletons in the dark forest, and one very hungry Beast. Totally appeals to teens and adults. Look for that smarmy visual Professor Layton reference on the ferry!

Wirt and Greg, two stepbrothers get lost in the forest one day, They later on find beatrice the bird, a girl who has been cursed.
And they try to find their way home.
This is a beautiful show with beautiful art.
The younger of children may not find it interesting, but it is a beautiful show.
5 stars!

when people say that no one makes good cartoons any more or that cartoons can't be both suitable for adults and kids, show them this show.

Over the garden all is a story of two kids that try to find their way home through a very spooky environment. The two play very will with one being full of potive energy and the other full of self doubt. The world is creepy at times but ultimately full of very charming backgrounds characters. I would say if you have a young kid that wants something a bit more spooky, but still light hearted at time. they will love this.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: The show is very deep, and even if younger kids don't understand a lot of it, they will still be disturbed by some of the ideas and characters in it, particularly in episode seven, which seriously scared the crap out of me...Still one of the best shows EVER though

Frightening or Intense Scenes: There can be some intense scenes for younger children.
