** This isn't the first time Creator/JeffBennett voiced a [[JustForFun/CandleJack super creepy character]].
** Also, Giffany isn't the first superpowered {{Yandere}} Jessica [=DiCicco=] [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime has played]].



** In ''Carpet Diem'', Niki Yang's character, Candy Chiu, observes that someone "has the [[WesternAnimation/AdventureTime voice of a robot]]."
** Creator/NathanFillion [[VillainWithGoodPublicity as a total jerk who's nevertheless adored by the public]]? [[WebOriginal/DrHorriblesSingAlongBlog Sounds familiar]].
*** It's also a little funny that Preston Northwest, a snooty, rich, member of the 1%, who takes advantage of lower class citizens, is the exact type of person that Captain Mal hates.
** Creator/JKSimmons voicing another character who goes slowly more unhinged as his experiences with strange science and [[VideoGame/{{Portal2}} portals]] grow?
*** Ford and [[WesternAnimation/TheLegendOfKorra Tenzin]] have many similarities, both are genius [[FoolishSiblingResponsibleSibling responsible siblings]] who had a strained relationship with their brother because of their father's favoritism.
*** He also [[Film/{{Whiplash}} tells Dipper he has to cut off his connections to other people to achieve his full potential]].
*** He is [[VideoGame/{{RedAlert3}} the second ever US president on the show]].



** Creator/JonathanBanks plays [[Series/BreakingBad another character]] [[Series/BetterCallSaul who is not easily impressed.]]
*** A more indirect example, but Banks' character bears a strong resemblance to Banks' costar Bryan Cranston, particularly whenever [[Series/BreakingBad Walter White]] adopts his Heisenberg alter-ego.



** One of Matt Chapman's many characters in the show is Soos' (Mabelland created) father... a shirtless hispanic wrestler donning a red-and-black mask with a blue diamond shaped mark on the forehead, black pants, and red boots with white soles... [[WebAnimation/HomestarRunner sound familiar?]]
** Mark Hamill has his fair share of playing evil roles, and the Shape Shifter is no exception.

** Dipper is [[http://thestuffedalligator.tumblr.com/post/160772105653/gothdolphin-i-asked-the-million-dollar-man-the confirmed]] to have made a [[Franchise/SonicTheHedgehog Sonic OC]] somewhere in his past: His name is [[AuthorSelfInsert Shadowtail the InvestiGerbil]], and apparently he has a magnifying glass for a hand.

* ExecutiveMeddling: ''Not'' the show ending after two seasons, as Alex Hirsch made sure to emphasize that it was entirely his own decision for quite a while, but it was because of the Disney execs that he didn't tell everyone right when he made that decision, as they hoped he'd change his mind about ending Disney XD's highest rated show.

* ExecutiveMeddling: ''Not'' the show ending after two seasons, as Alex Hirsch made sure to emphasize that it was entirely his own decision for quite a while, but it was because of the Disney execs that he didn't tell everyone right when he made that decision, as they hoped he'd change his mind about ending Disney XD's highest rated show. Hirsch also commented that Disney gave him a remarkable amount of creative freedom for a first-time showrunner; his only major complaint was that the legal department would frequently veto jokes, parodies and song choices that were too close to existing material.


Added DiffLines:

* TroubledProduction: The show suffered constant issues due to its creator Alex Hirsch's lack of experience in running an entire show (he was only 27 years old when it started). By the time the first season wrapped, Hirsch was so exhausted that he seriously considered ending the show right there, leaving it forever on an incredibly tantalizing Cliffhanger. It wasn't until he shared his plans with Creator/JonStewart, a huge fan who was horrified at the idea, that he decided to press on, though cutting his plans for the show to run three seasons down to just two. The Disney Channel execs weren't very happy about losing one of their most acclaimed shows so soon, and forbade him from revealing the plan to end the show to the public until the season was almost over, spending the entire time in between trying to talk him into continuing it to no avail. When the announcement finally couldn't be put off anymore, Hirsch was a complete stand up guy about it, making clear that the two season run was entirely his own decision and the fans shouldn't blame anyone at Disney for it, and ultimately came out of the experience with a highly acclaimed project he got to end on his own terms, about the happiest ending to the story possible.

** With TheReveal concerning [[spoiler: The Author AND a confirmation of the [[IKnewIt "Stan has a twin" theory]], people have taken to calling the Author "Author Stan" or "Stanley", which is the most commonly theorized name for Stan's twin... Until "A Tale of Two Stans" came in and confirmed the Author's name was Stan''ford'' and the beloved Grunkle was Stan''ley''.]]

* OutOfOrder: Disney XD in the UK airs "[[Recap/GravityFallsS1E1TouristTrapped Tourist Trapped]]" as the fifth episode of the first season, and "[[Recap/GravityFallsS2E1Scaryoke Scaryoke]]" as the third episode of the second season.[note]In both cases, this was probably because of the production codes, which only indicate when an episode's ''script'' is finished; "Tourist Trapped" was the fifth-finished Season 1 script, while Scaryoke was the third-finished Season 2 script.[/note]

* WordOfGay: Alex Hirsch confirmed during a youtube livestream charity event hosted by him and Dana Terrace that Deputy Durland and Sheriff Blurbs are in a homosexual relationship. This was no surprise there as fans pretty much knew that Durland and Blubs confirmed their relationship in the series finale.
