    I just finished watching Cartoon Network’s Over the Garden Wall. From start to finish, I felt like I was watching nothing short of an instant classic. This magical animated miniseries embodies the allure of a timeless fairytale like The Wizard of Oz or Alice in Wonderland while also maintaining the humor and depth of new age masterworks like Adventure Time or Where the Wild Things Are. The result is sometimes funny, sometimes creepy, and always unique. Over the Garden Wall should rightfully earn an Emmy Nomination for Outstanding Short-format Animation, but it’s worthy of even greater heights. With shows like The Simpsons, Family Guy, and South Park competing in the Comedy Writing category, why not submit Over the Garden Wall into Miniseries Writing? As far as I’m concerned, it’s not only the most well-written miniseries of the season. It’s the best miniseries period.

    Agreed, this was just spectacular, memorable characters that would put the best of Pixar’s or Disney to shame, the songs are gorgeous, the sequence with the Singing frog in the frog boat is just Brilliance. Not enough emmys for McHale.

    I dunno, I think it is pretty safe, it’s not like there is something else to beat it, If Bojack had been nominated, I would’ve said there is a race but, not really.

    Hopefully Emmy voters make the right choice, just like they got it right by awarding Samurai Jack: The Birth of Evil several years ago. If anything else wins, it will be clear evidence that they’re lazily ballot checking. Of course the fact that The Simpsons is here over Gravity Falls or Phineas and Ferb is already kind of proof of that.

    I haven’t seen this, but maybe I should. It has Christopher Lloyd in it, one of the greatest actors ever. Sign me up!

    please do. It is actually embarassing how few people have seen this, it is art in it’s finest.

    I watch the entire series yesterday (just 100 minutes). It’s a beautiful piece of television. Incredible, lovely and memorable.

    I just finished it a few hours ago, and I agree. Just a lovely piece of work all around. I’d love to see it win, though I still have to see the Archer and Bob’s Burgers submissions.

    Love the win, but wasn’t this category fraud? It’s a miniseries.

    Were the episodes ever aired in a single 5-hour block?  (South Park did this with “Imaginationland” to get it into the old “long-form” animation category when it won.)

    Other than that, they’re only “supposed to” enter one episode, although it appears that they originally aired in hour-long blocks, so it’s possible that they entered two.
