Before the Garden Wall
4 November 2015 | by (Berlin, Germany) – See all my reviews

"Tome of the Unknown" or "Harvest Melody" is a 9-minute cartoon from 2 years ago that actually won 2 Emmys this year. It is the introduction to the successful new television series "Over the Garden Wall". The voice cast is not particularly known with the exception of Elijah "Frodo" Wood and I have to say I did not know writer and director Patrick McHale either before watching this. And afterward, I think it wasn't much of a loss really. I felt all about this short film was only so-so, fairly mediocre. The animation of the nature is nice, but I did not really like the way most of the characters looked. And the jokes and story weren't a revelation either. I am fairly surprised that this short film and series are so lauded as I cannot see great quality here. Not recommended.
