Western Animation: Gravity Falls
"Unfortunately, my suspicions have been confirmed. I'm being watched. I must hide this book before He finds it.
Remember—in Gravity Falls, there is no one you can trust."Gravity Falls is an animated Disney Channel Original Series created by Alex Hirsch and produced by Rob Renzetti. It began airing on June 29, 2012.The show tells the story of twins Dipper and Mabel Pines, who have been sent to live for the summer with their "grunkle" note Stanford "Stan" Pines in the valley town of Gravity Falls, Oregon, where he owns the Mystery Shack, "the world's most bizarre museum". Dipper and Mabel's situation worsens (or, rather, betters) when Dipper finds a mysterious book, whose cover is only marked with the number "3" and a hand with six fingers. Upon opening it, Dipper finds a Great Big Book of Everything explaining the many strange beings, past events, and even federal cover-ups that exist within this town of secrecy — all cut through with an urgent warning: Trust No One! Thus begins Mabel and Dipper's adventures as they interact with the supernatural world that surrounds them.After the first season finale, Alex Hirsch announced that the series would be going on a possibly year-long hiatus.
