Gravity Falls

First off, THANKS COPYGOO, for indirectly getting me into this show.

Second, this show was made by one of the guys behind The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack.

Third, it's like a crossover cartoon of previously aforementioned show in terms of animation with random humor and X-Files/Twin Peaks style parodying.

Fourth, it has one of the best theme songs I've heard.

I wholly agree on the theme song. All-instrumental is getting pretty rare now, it was quite nice to hear one like that.

I saw clips of this when passing by Disney Channel, I think. With the cryptid theme how close is it to The Secret Saturdays?

Very, very different from The Secret Saturdays. Less about hunting cryptids and much more about just kind of exploring and being kids.

VAs are great and the jokes are pretty hilarious.

Watched an episode of this tonight. And I fucking loved it. I'd put it in the class of shows (Main demo. is kids but it appeals to older people) like Adventure Time.

Concept is decent and played incredibly well. VAs are awesome and make the characters more, y'know, "believable" or something to that effect. Favorite character (after only one episode) has to be Mabel because she's just awesome like that (and gets bonus points for being voiced by Kristen Schaal).

I sure hope this isn't a quote from the show and you're under the mistaken impression that the writers are comedy gods. ^_^; Saw this very joke, crosshairs, bullet holes, and all, on a redneck's pickup truck's rear window in the form of a bumper sticker a few months ago. I sorely doubt said redneck was a fan of a children's cartoon show and that he had managed to get his favorite line from the show turned into a bumper sticker, so I'm left only to conclude that the writers for this show heard the joke (perhaps from the bumper sticker) and incorporated it into the show.

If it's not a line from the show you're attributing to the wittiness of the writers, then carry on.

Given what I saw in the first episode, the speaker is probably not a red-neck, but he might be a grey beard.

Same. Damn you deo for posting the cool theme song. =x

Been hearing things about secret codes. You guys picked up on that yet?

The point is that it's a bad pun, taken from a joke book within the show no less.

YES. This show is so very, very good.

Mabel is such an amazing character for ALL purposes. Honestly, it's really, really amazing and I'm that excited about it.

The joke itself isn't the funny part it's the situation in which it is made and the delivery (hence the repitition and smaller parentheses'd comment) that made it funny. To be fair you had no idea of knowing this without seeing it play out in the show. The post wasn't meant to be "gotten" by people who hadn't seen it yet.

So I very much urge you to watch the show because it is very good :O

It's a cute show. Reminds me of 90's cartoons. Also reminds me a little of Johnny Quest and I don't know why.

I heard about this through YT comments. The key is "three letters back". It's actually whispered backwards at the end of the theme song.

Here are others from the credits:

Spoiler: show
1) Welcome to Gravity Falls.
2) Next week: Return to Butt Island
3) He’s still in the vents.
4) Carla, why won’t you call me?


I've not actually bothered looking for them in the show myself. Anyone know exactly when/where they occur?

Btw, anyone notice anything peculiar about the image on that site?

Spoiler: show
Namely, that it shows a triangle symbol wearing an Abe Lincoln hat?

Spoiler: show
And in episode 03, the window that melted the Lincoln wax figure had the same triangular symbol?

Also in the same episode, the second S on the Mystery Shack got knocked off, just as in the intro. I wonder what other secrets the intro foreshadows. =O

Interesting.
Spoiler: show
Gruncle stan seemed to be up to something in ep one yet seemed less likely in further episodes... But He might have placed those symbols as some kind of protection?
