Hero Overview

Wirt is the main protagonist of the cartoon series Over the Garden Wall. He is a boy who is lost in the Unknown alongside Greg. Towards the end of the series, it's revealed that he and Greg are half-brothers and from the modern world.

He was voiced by Elijah Wood, who also portrayed, Huckleberry Finn in the 1993 film adaptation of The Adventures of Huck Finn, Mark Evans in The Good Son, Frodo Baggins in The Lord of the Rings, Spyro in The Legend of Spyro 2006 version series, and 9 in the movie by the same name in English. In the Japanese dub, he was voiced by Daisuke Namikawa.

Appearance

Wirt is a relatively short and thin boy with messy brown hair, who wears a red gnome hat, a navy blue cape with yellow buttons, white shirt, and grey pants with suspenders. It's later revealed to be a Halloween costume, and his daily outfit is an orange sweater, a white shirt and grey pants, the latter two of which are presumably the same one he wears in his Halloween costume.

Personality

Wirt is a teenager who views the world in a serious way, unlike Greg. He is usually stubborn and makes a point of being in opposition to the other's suggestions, which usually leads them in trouble, and blame his brother for their misery, and while this is partially true, Wirt only bears the title of a leader, as he doesn't have the capabilities yet. He is, most of all, a typical teenage boy with worries of his own. However, by the end of the series, he has matured and taken responsibility for his own actions.

Biography

Wirt is a student who has a secret crush on his schoolmate Sara, and a half-brother named Greg. Because of Wirt's disliking toward Greg's father, who is also Wirt's stepfather, he disliked Greg as well. On Halloween, Wirt was about to give his tape to Sara, but ended up running away with Greg thanks to him being too shy. When trying to avoid a train, the two fell into a lake and blacked out. Upon waking up, they had ended up in the Unknown.

They would then meet a bird named Beatrice, who directs them to the witch Adelaide, who is said to be able to help them return home. Unbeknownst to them however, Adelaide actually enslaves children, and Beatrice has made a deal with her to have the brothers as her servants in exchange for a pair of scissors that can turn her and her family back to humans. When Adelaide traps the brothers however, Beatrice manages to kill her via opening a window and letting in the fresh night air, melting her away. The brothers then continue their journey, this time without Beatrice as they think she betrayed them.

Upon learning that Wirt is about to have his soul claimed by the Beast, Greg lets himself take his brother's place. Waking up and seeing his brother gone, Wirt goes on to search for him with Beatrice's aid. Wirt then appears right after a fight happened between the Woodsman and the Beast, and the latter tempts him to take the Woodsman's place as the new lantern-bearer. However, Wirt then realizes that the lantern actually contains the Beast's soul, thus he refuses and rescues Greg before carrying the latter home, leaving the Woodsman killing the Beast via blowing his soul out.

Wirt and Greg then wake up in a hospital and tell their friends about their adventure in the Unknown. Wirt also finally confesses his feelings to Sara.

Trivia

  • Although he's older, Wirt is afraid of many things, and prefers to be by himself. However, he has Greg to look after.
  • His secret passions are playing the clarinet and poetry.
  • In one of concept art Wirt's original name was Walter. This may be unintentional, but his name makes a pun out of the phrase 'Worry Wart', aptly capturing Wirt's disposition.
  • Wirt can play the bassoon quite well, as shown in "Lullaby in Frogland".
