Over the Garden Wall is a cartoon mini-series on Cartoon Network, based on Patrick McHale’s short animated film Tome of the Unknown. It centers on a young poet, Wirt, and his half-brother Greg, as they travel through a dark forest called “The Unknown”. They are accompanied by a talking bluebird named Beatrice. The mini-series has ten episodes; the latter nine loosely correspond to the circles of hell in Dante’s Inferno.
