Reasons Why Over the Garden Wall is Awful

The Top Ten

1 It's Not a Comedy

Some people just don't understand that not every show needs to be a comedy to be good

Is this a joke or something? And while I'm here I just want to say OTGW does have comedy, it's just not the main focus of the show. Also some of these reasons are doubles.

Not every show has to be a comedy. Jesus

So every show has to be a comedy? What is this supposed to mean? If this show is so terrible, I wonder with it got a 9/10 on IMDB and a 99/100 on Rotten Tomatoes. (The highest rated CN show ever, by the way)
I don't know who wrote this list, but they are obviously out of their mind.

2 Bad Animation

Are you kidding me? Otgw has grew animation and whoever thinks otherwise needs to learn what animation is. #THE TRUTH

I'd like to see you do better

Seriously, CN? You can do way better than this. Wirt barely shows his arms and has a triangular nose, and Gregory has a small mouth and looks like a deformed fat person. Not to mention, their noses are pink and they have circular eyes with huge, soulless black irises.

It's an art style and yea, Wirt doesn't show his arms much but I think his character design allows that. - Mangata

3 It's Not Exciting

Whoever wrote this list is just insane

Who wants to watch two kids walk around a forest?!

4 It's Too Short



Only 10 episodes?! I guess that CN thought the show was so bad they only let it run for a year.

5 Wirt is an Awful Brother

He never shows any concern of Gregory when they're in extreme danger.

And that is his character. I don't see how Wirt not being the best sibling takes away from the show, especially considering that some people just aren't super loving/caring/understanding of their younger siblings. - Mangata

6 It's Not a Kid-Friendly Cartoon

One episode, if I can recall correctly, had a part where the main characters were drowning in water, although that was part of a dream. But still...

It's not written to be extremely kid friendly. This show follows the Don Bluth idea that you can make something for kids really dark, and they can handle it if a happy ending is attached. Kids need to watch these, because even if they're scared, they're intrigued. - Elric-san

7 The Beast is Pointless and Unoriginal

Maybe your mom is pointless and unoriginal

It's SO unoriginal. We've seen "a dangerous beast that lurks in the shadows, away from the main characters until the last few episodes" a million times already.

Dude just stop we know you liked because one of your reasons was it was to short - toptenforlife

8 It's Overrated

It's a good show but according to IMDB it scores 9/10. Seems like a OTT rating to me.

9 It Only Appeals to SJWs

Only a five year old would think this.

I am so sick of these CN shows that appe to Tumblr users/social justice warriors! I probably would've been okay if there were only a couple, but come on!

10 It is Boring

The Contenders

11 Women are Portrayed as Prizes for the Male Characters V 1 Comment
12 There are No Transgender Characters

Seriously? Why would there need to be? I'm not transgender myself but I can assure you as a minority that not everything needs to be shown in a cartoon with minimal cast. Go read Magnus Chase or something.

(I am aware that Alex is genderfluid and not transgendered but I'm pretty sure that they are similar enough.) - Mangata

13 The Animation is Ugly

Your mom is uglier

14 The Characters are Mean
15 Rip Off of Gravity Falls

The only similarity they share is two siblings and something creepy in the woods. And the settings and plot are completely different. - TheAlbinoWolf

16 It's Stupid
17 Borrows the same Nonsense Humor and Style of Adventure Time

Cartoon Network's "Renaissance" is anything but. Garden Wall is just Adventure Time under another name, and even has the same writers and animators. It's just really overrated.
