Plot Synopsis

Cartoon Network's first event mini-series, OVER THE GARDEN WALL, is an animated comedy/fantasy story about two brothers, Wirt and Greg, who are trapped in a mysterious world, as they try to find their way home, aided by a bluebird named Beatrice and a wise old Woodsman who gives them directions. During their journey, the two brothers and Beatrice get all mixed up in the musical antics of a schoolhouse of animals; take a lighthearted romp aboard the Frogland Ferry; are drawn into a dream world of cherubs, flowers and clouds; and learn about the origin of Wirt and Greg's descent into the unknown. Guest voices include Chris Isaak, Bebe Neuwirth, John Cleese, Shannyn Sossamon, Jack Jones, Samuel Ramey, Tim Curry, Deborah Voight, and more. This 10-episode series premieres over five consecutive nights beginning Monday, November 3 at 7pm ET/PT, as Cartoon Network airs back-to-back 15-minute episodes each night.
On Friday, November 7, 2014 from 7-7:30pm ET/PT, Cartoon Network debuted the final two installments of OVER THE GARDEN. In Chapters 9 & 10, the origin of Wirt and Greg's descent into the unknown reveals itself, as the final chapter begins.
