Anyone else seen this?

Just watched the first few episodes, and was constantly laughing throughout, the jokes are great, and the animation is great too.

Hard to describe the show, but it's kinda like an animated version of "Eerie, Indiana", with super-detailed backgrounds and an 8-bit video game style soundtrack.

I don't like the character designs, but the background art there is really wonderful.

I saw this last Thursday on Disney XD and I am really impressed with the show so far. To bad we have to wait till September to see the next one.

Looks like Disney's 'Eerie' take on the digicast characterised as the 'Universal Atmospheric Element Compensator.'

This is a good show, I can see the Eerie Indiana comparison, x-files for kids is a good idea when done well
It looks good and the character's are well done, particularly Mabel
There are lots of things going on in the background and hidden messages and codes etc

I love this show so much. Mabel is, as my friend and I say, "our spirit animal".

I've only seen one episode of this but I enjoyed it.  It did have a good joke base and an interesting story (Who destroyed the wax figure).  I did find Mabel a bit grating though.  Hopefully she won't be too annoying if I watch any more.

Holy crap, I just watched the first episode, and it was AWESOME. Futurama WHAT? I loved virtually everything about it. The animation is beautiful, the jokes worked and were funny, the story and world setup intriguing. I liked this more than Adventure Time. Mable is so cute and great. NEW FAVOURITE SHOW.

Yes, after the last two Futurama episodes (robot food and salmon, WAT?), Gravity Falls is like a breath of fresh cartoon air.

Exactly! It saddens me that nobody seems to know about this show. (At least that's what it seems like from my conversations with people.) Adventure Time deserves all the praise it gets, but I think this show deserves even more praise.

Plus... Kristen Schaal... love I will love whatever you do. Mabel is such a fun character.

I didn't realize there was a thread for this. I had thought about making one myself...so I'm glad it finally got bumped so I could see it.

This is a terrific show. In fact, I can't think of anything funnier on TV right at this moment. Mabel in the life-sized hamster ball is my favorite gag so far. "Hey boys! You can look, but you can't touch!" Great characters, great animation. I didn't care for the character designs at first, but everything's grown on me.

Everybody should watch it!

Yeah, it's a pity it's getting crappy breaks in broadcast, I rewatched a bit of the pilot recently and it's just great.

This is the only decent show on Disney Channel.
It doesn't have crap like talking dogs on the internet, I couldn't think of any other awful shows that Disney Channel has gave our eyeballs at this time.
The background art is majestic, the animation is alright.
It's definitely better than the horrors Disney Channel has brought to us.
Like what Scrappylive said, this show doesn't get praise.
Hell, It's going down the same road as Futurama, air dates bumping around from several weeks to one week.
Disney should get their heads out of their asses and give Gravity Falls a good broadcast schedule.

The finale was amazing, crammed full of jokes,


really love this show, although the scheduling is the absolute weirdest I've ever seen for any TV show, they've somehow dragged out 20 episodes over 14 months, showing new eps seemingly at random, with random-sized breaks in-between each one.

At least it has been renewed for a full second season, very very happy about that, especially considering the finale.

This show is alright, I'm kinda surprised it's on Disney though considering so many parents wont let their children watch it. It should be on like cartoon network, It would get better reviews, but don't get me wrong, I like the show.

I just watched the Time Traveler's Pig episode.

I fucking love this series. I didn't care much for the first episode, but if more episodes are like this one, then count me in! I'll start watching this!

Are their episodes like this one?

Summerween, Carpet Diem, Fight Fighters, Dreamscaperers, and Gideon Rises if your looking for really sci-fi ones. Personally, I'd watch the entire Season in order so you can follow the minor continuity and mystery plots in it, but if you need more convincing before watching it, watch one of the first 3 I mentioned (keep in mind, the show gets a lot better after the pilot episode).

Also, there's going to be a few Gravity Fall shorts on the Disney Channel starting October 14th to keep people happy between then and Season 2 (which airs late 2014  mad).

I just watched Double Dipper. It was almost as good as the Time Traveler one. I really like this show so far. Some eps I don't really care for, but I like the little crush Dipper has on Wendy. I think that really picks up the show's momentum quality. Like the eps concerning him and Wendy are always the best ones.

The Wendy/Dipper dynamic is great. I can totally relate to it!

What episodes did you not like? I can't remember any bad ones off the top of my head.

I love it.

Well, the first episode didn't really have me sold on this series. I liked it, but not an entire whole lot like later episodes. But maybe that's because I got interrupted and stopped watching partway through it. I don't dislike any episodes yet, which is a miracle. I only think that a few turned out to be just good, instead of consistently great.

Another episode like that was Manly tests or something like that, which started off great with Dipper trying to prove he's manly. But as soon as the barbarian creature things stepped in, it kind of got a little boring. It was still good, and I really liked the overall resolution and the subplot with Stan, but I don't know. Something about it just wasn't sold to me like alot of other episodes were. I only watched like 5 so far, I'm probably going to watch through it starting at episode 1 sooner or later.

Man, I need to catch up with this show. I watched it when it was first on, basically up until Summerween, and stopped paying attention to it afterward because I figured it was cancelled, what with the strange absence of the show and all. I just now realized they came back from what I assume was a hiatus, and now I've gotta find time to finish Season 1.
Tell me, everyone; Are the further episodes as good as the first few were? I just want to be sure I'm not diving into crap here, you know?

The show gets even better as it goes on, especially with the big revelations the show makes at the end of the Season. Keep watching Robot Maniac, it's just starting to get to the really good part.

For my least favorite episode of the show, it'd probably be Boyz Crazy. Still really like it, but I just didn't find the robot boy band premise as interesting as the other supernatural things on the show and didn't really laugh that much.

Also, just in case you missed them, here's the mini shorts they aired on the Disney Channel during October.

I might watch the first episode of this to see how it is.  My little cousin was watching a boy band episode, and it seemed like it would be interesting atleast.
