''Gravity Falls'' is an animated Creator/DisneyChannel Original Series created by Creator/AlexHirsch and produced by [[WesternAnimation/MyLifeAsATeenageRobot Rob]] [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Renzetti]]. It premiered on June 29, 2012.

For their summer vacation, twins [[AdorablyPrecociousChild Dipper]] and [[GenkiGirl Mabel Pines]] are sent to live with their great-uncle[[note]]or "grunkle"[[/note]] Stan Pines in the valley town of [[UsefulNotes/TheOtherRainforest 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, the cover of which is marked with only the number "3" and a hand with six fingers. Upon opening it, Dipper finds a GreatBigBookOfEverything explaining the many strange beings, past events, and even federal cover-ups that exist within this [[TownWithADarkSecret town of secrecy]] -- all cut through with an urgent warning: ''Trust No One!'' Thus begins Dipper and Mabel's adventures as they interact with the supernatural world that surrounds them.

After the first season finale, the series went on a year-long hiatus. Several {{Miniseries}} were released over the break to keep fans satisfied, including:
* ''[[Recap/GravityFallsDippersGuideToTheUnexplained Dipper's Guide to the Unexplained]]'', where Dipper attempts to make documentaries explaining supposed mysteries around Gravity Falls.
* ''[[Recap/GravityFallsMabelsGuideToLife Mabel's Guide to Life]],'' in which Mabel gives out handy tips to enjoy everyday life.
* ''[[Recap/GravityFallsFixinItWithSoos Fixin' it with Soos]]'', a short series of videos that has Soos trying to fix various things around the Mystery Shack.
* ''[[Recap/GravityFallsTVShorts TV Shorts]]'', which consist of a few sketches depicting Gravity Falls' TV programming.
* ''[[Recap/GravityFallsMabelsScrapbook Mabel's Scrapbook]]'', which follows the Pines family on vacation outings.

Season 2 premiered on August 1, 2014, a year after Season 1. The series was rebranded as a ''Creator/DisneyXD'' original series, with episodes premiering on that network first before airing later on Disney Channel. Alex Hirsch later announced that Season 2 would be the final season, and The GrandFinale aired February 15, 2016, as a one-hour special. A DVD/Blu-ray release of the complete series is slated for release in July 2018 from Creator/ShoutFactory, making it the first Disney animated series to receive such a release.
