Cartoon Network Sets Premiere For Miniseries ‘Over The Garden Wall’

Cartoon Network’s first animated miniseries “Over The Garden Wall” is set to make its debut on Nov. 3 at 7 p.m., and will run over five consecutive nights.

The ten-episode mystery adventure is created by Patrick McHale (“Adventure Time”) and features the voices of Elijah Wood, Melanie Lynskey and Collin Dean (“The War At Home”). The series is produced by Cartoon Network Studios.

“Over The Garden Wall” follows two brothers named Wirt (Wood) and Greg (Dean) who find themselves lost in the Unknown, a forest adrift in time. With the help of an old woodsman (Christopher Lloyd) and a bluebird named Beatrice (Lynskey), the two must travel to try and find their way home.

The series also features guest voices including Chris Isaak, Bebe Neuwirth, John Cleese, Shannyn Sossamon, Jack Jones, Samuel Ramey, Tim Curry and more.

“Over the Garden Wall” is based on McHale’s “Tome of the Unknown,” which joins a list of animated shorts developed into series on Cartoon Network, including “Regular Show,” “Steven Universe,” “Uncle Grandpa Clarence” and “We Bare Bears.”
