Over the Garden Wall

Over the Garden Wall is an American animated television miniseries created by Patrick McHale for Cartoon Network. The series centers on two half-brothers who travel across a strange forest in order to find their way home, encountering odd and wonderful things on their journey. The show is based on McHale's animated short film Tome of the Unknown, which was produced as part of Cartoon Network Studios' shorts development program. The show features Elijah Wood and Collin Dean as the protagonists Wirt and Greg, and Melanie Lynskey as a bluebird named Beatrice. Over the Garden Wall was broadcast throughout the week of November 3, 2014 to November 7, 2014.

In Episode 10 of Over the Garden Wall, "The Unknown," toward the middle Wirt discovers Greg turning into an Edelwood tree. During that time, a slower version of "Potatoes and Molasses" is playing in the background. By using that song again, but in a more melancholic manner, the writers behind the show were able to convey the message of Greg's perseverance and the true sorrow and guilt that Wirt feels for letting his brother down. It really is rather beautiful and contributes to the meaning of the story as a whole.

If you have not seen Over the Garden Wall, I recommend that you do. It delves deeper into what we perceive in our minds and what appears on the outside to be true. Anyway, this video talks about the representations of hope and resignment within the show and its two protagonists: Wirt and Greg.
