Over the Garden Wall is a masterpiece cartoon show, recieving a 9.2/10 in IMDb and 4/5 on Hulu and yet so underrated. While many people are talking modern shows like Star vs The Forces of Evil, Steven Universe, OK KO: Let’s Be Heroes, Duck Tales, Adventure Time, and so forth or even talk about older shows that are done like Avatar the Last Airbender, Gravity Falls, Teen Titans, etc.
-The Beasts makeup in the beginning
-After Belle rejects Gaston’s dinner offer and he was like “oh, you’re busy?” and she just says “no.” SAVAGE.
- “Now let’s go to the East Wing or as I like to call it, the ONLY Wing…” .
-The entire “Gaston” song scene
- “I don’t have any tastebuds, but I can tell this is delicious”
- Belle throwing a snowball at the Beast and Beast responding by PELTING a huge snowball at her face
-That growl that the Beast did at the end after he had already transformed back 😳
- Lefou and that one thug getting to dance together at the end.
One of my favorite moments in this adaptation is this exchange:
Belle: Why do you care about him so much?
Mrs. Potts: We’ve looked after him all his life.
Belle: He’s cursed you somehow. Why? You did nothing.
Mrs. Potts: You’re quite right there, dear. You see, when the master lost his mother, and his cruel father took that sweet, innocent lad and twisted him up to be just like him, we did nothing.
It always bothered me that the staff was cursed when they did nothing to deserve it, but in this version they were punished for a reason. They let him become the way he was when they could have stopped it. I thought this was a beautiful addition to the story.
