Gravity Falls is a cartoon created by Alex Hirsch which was inspired by the summers he had with his own twin sister. The show follows the summer adventures of Dipper and Mabel Pines who have been sent to the town of Gravity Falls, Oregon to spend the summer with their Great Uncle (Grunkle) Stan, and help out in his tourist trap “Mystery Shack.” However, one day Dipper finds a mysterious journal in the forest, which tells of the paranormal inhabitants of the town. Not a day goes by where you can’t help but wonder things are not as they seem in Gravity Falls. If you want a really cleverly written show that doesn’t talk down to its audience, is filled with amazing characters, fantastic writing, as well as hidden messages and meanings within the episodes which send you on a wild goose chase to find out what they mean (believe me that was especially true when season 2 started) then Gravity Falls is the show for you. Also for Homestar Runner fans, Strong Bad is one of the writers. Which is dope as hell. (I lost my marbles in the best way finding that out).
