Gravity Falls is an American animated television series created by Alex Hirsch, produced by Disney Television Animation originally for Disney Channel from June 15, 2012, to February 15, 2016.

Plot

Twins Dipper and Mabel Pines are sent to spend the summer with their great-uncle, Grunkle Stan Pines, in the mysterious town of Gravity Falls, Oregon. Grunkle Stan has the kids help him run The Mystery Shack, the tourist trap that he owns. The twins try to adapt to the weird surroundings but sense that there is something strange about Gravity Falls and begin to unlock its secrets. When Dipper uncovers a cryptic journal that offers insight into the town's mysteries, he and Mabel use it and their enthusiastic desire to vanquish evil to battle the imminent mysteries that surround them.

Why It Rocks

  1. Beautiful animation.
  2. Very likable characters, such as Dipper, Mabel, Stan, Ford, Wendy, and Soos.
  3. Intelligent, mature and witty humor.
  4. Great writing and very creative episodes, such as Not What He Seems, The Last Mabelcorn and the Weirdmageddon three-parter.
  5. All-star voice actors, such as Jason Ritter and Kristen Schaal.
  6. Has a great grasp on mystery, darkness, horror and adventure.
  7. Awesome villains, such as Gideon Gleeful and Bill Cipher.
  8. Entertaining action, such as the final battle in Weirdmageddon: Part 3.
  9. Clever hidden messages, such as Bill Cipher's final message.
  10. Hilarious one-liners, such as "It's funny how dumb you are!".
  11. It not only focuses on the supernatural side, but it also focuses on the relatable growing pains of adolescence.
  12. Pretty solid intro.
  13. Funny parodies, such as Rumble McSkirmish, a parody of Ryu from Street Fighter.
  14. The background design is visually beautiful for being created in Photoshop.
  15. Handyman Soos is a hilarious and entertaining comic relief who also shows off-beat intelligence and does what he knows is right.
  16. The series ended in a very high positive note in Weirdmeggedon despite lasting only 2 seasons. Where Gideon Gleeful is no longer evil, Bill Cipher defeated for good (though he might return as stated in Bill Ciphers hidden message.), Soos being in charge of the Mystery Shack while Stan and Ford went out together and Dipper and Mabel becoming teenagers while turning 13 while they say goodbye to their friends while headed home while they might visit each other next summer.
  17. 70% of show's viewers ships Dipcifica while 20% were Wendip.

Bad Qualities

  1. Includes content that is inappropriate for a kids show, such as jump scares, on-screen deaths and this.
  2. A few bad episodes, like Dipper vs. Manliness and Roadside Attraction, but even those aren't too bad.
  3. A few of the characters like Stanley and Mabel can get unlikable occasionally because of their occasional selfishness, and the way they both treat Dipper, and Mabel herself can get annoying at times.
  4. Bill Cipher was very underused in this show, despite being the main antagonist. He's only appeared in seven episodes of the series. (Not counting as appearing as pictured)

Even though Gravity Falls ended for two seasons, the Wierdmaggeon story arcs were the perfect way to end the whole show. The show may be over, but it's still airing reruns on Disney XD.

One of the bad qualities should be that there is and episode with Soos getting a dating simulator before meeting a real girl and rejecting the dating sim girl which was just offensive to the waifu and husbando community. Other than that, it’s still a great show.

This show is... well, really emotional to me, especially the end of the series finale.
