"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 premiered on June 29, 2012.

For their summer vacation, twins Dipper and Mabel Pines are sent to live with their great-unclenote  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, gets better) when Dipper finds a mysterious book, the cover bearing an insignia of a six-fingered hand marked with the number "3". Upon opening it, he discovers that it is 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 Dipper and Mabel's adventures as they interact with the supernatural world that surrounds them.


After the Season 1 finale, the series went on a year-long hiatus. Several mini-series of short films were released over the break to keep fans satisfied. Season 2 premiered on August 1, 2014, a year after Season 1. The series was rebranded as a Disney XD original series, with episodes premiering on that network first before airing later on Disney Channel. On November 20, 2015, Alex Hirsch announced that Season 2 would be the final season, with the Grand Finale airing February 15, 2016, as a one-hour special. Hirsch has since stated he remains open to the idea of continuing the series with additional episodes or specials, and he delivered with Gravity Falls: Lost Legends, a comic book anthology released sometime after the series' run.

A DVD/Blu-ray of the complete series was released on July 24, 2018 from Shout! Factory, making it the first Disney animated series to receive such a release. You can vote for your favorite episode here.


"Bewarb" of spoilers.

This show contains examples of the following tropes:


Gravity Falls [GIFfany's Demise]

Scene from Gravity Falls, Ep 25 - Soos and the Real Girl. Backed into a corner by GIFfany, Soos seems doomed to have his mind downloaded. Luckily for Soos though, he had brought her game disk along intending to return it to the game store later. Since it's the only thing keeping GIFfany in existence, Soos "breaks up" with her once and for all.

How well does it match the trope?
