It became a modern classic almost over night, like a Twin Peaks birthed by Disney. It shone brightly and was gone quickly.
We miss it already.
So what is Gravity Falls?
Well it begins with 12-year-old twins Dipper and Mabel Pines who are dropped off from their home in Piedmont, California to the fictitious town of Gravity Falls, Roadkill County, Oregon to live with their Great Uncle Stan Pines (often shortened to Grunkle Stan), who runs a tourist trap called The Mystery Shack.
Things are not what they seem in this small town, and with the help of a mysterious journal that Dipper finds in the forest, they begin unraveling the local mysteries.
Along for the trippy ride with Dipper and Mabel are Wendy Corduroy who works as a cashier at The Mystery Shack; Soos Ramirez – handyman to Grunkle Stan; Waddles the pig, plus an assortment of other characters.
Nothing is normal in Gravity Falls, Dipper and Mabel always have something that needs to be checked out!
