    Here's the first promo for the series. I'm glad Disney finally posted a "widescreen" video on YouTube. Besides the fact here's a thread about the new show.

    Wow, nobody has said anything about this show? Well, allow me to be the first one to reply to this thread:

    When I saw the first promo, I thought it was going to be one of those uninteresting shows like on Disney XD. But as time went on, I realized that it wasn't as I had expected. I've seen the other promos and have looked it up on the official website. I gotta say, it seems like one heck of a good show. For me, the visual style is somewhat like Regular Show and the plot more like The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack. Disney Channel really needs more cartoons like this. There's Phineas and Ferb and Fish Hooks,'but even those aren't enough. If DC keeps this up, it will be much better. Can't wait for the preview and the premiere! :)

    This show snuck up on me. It'll probably sneak up on even more people. Granted, this forum is a wasteland so I doubt very many people even saw the thread. I know I didn't. I asked {Shadow} to make a talkback image, so I'll make talkback threads for each episode. I haven't done that since Yin Yang Yo! and the early Disney XD days with Jimmy Two-Shoes and Kid vs. Kat. It looks good.

    I wasn't even aware the show debuted yet. When is it airing?

    It will have a sneak preview on June 15, at 9:55 PM, with the official premiere hitting on June 29 at 9:30 PM, on the Disney Channel.

    I don't get it. There doesn't seem to be any buzz at all for this show. I know Disney's TV animation has been somewhat lackluster in recent years, but they seem to be trying to get their act together. Hopefully people will give it a chance this Friday when the preview episode airs. Disney has uploaded a bunch of trailers on YouTube if people want to get a feel for it.

    I'm sure there are some dedicated Disney forums chatting about this.

    Its a shame no one on Toon Zone is talking about Gravity Falls. I'd really like to know who is working on this behind the scenes, so I understand the talent behind this. This show.... is a little remniscent of Regular Show to me. Like Regular Show's "episode formula" but with a Disney spin.

    And just what *is* Craig McCrakken up to anyways???

    Answers to both your questions can be found in our coverage of the Disney XD upfront presentation from this March.

    This was in the credits, it seems. I put it into an anagram scrambler but it didn't find anything. Maybe each episode will have one, and maybe they'll mean something. I'll keep track of them in this thread so people can try to figure out what's what.

    Edit: Somebody already cracked it. Take each letter and move it to the third letter that precedes it. It spells out "Welcome to Gravity Falls". Hopefully they keep doing these puzzles, and hopefully, it takes people longer to crack them.

    Well, I didn't see the gnome thing coming, but their were hints since we kept seeing its page in the book.
    I like this show, it does feel a little like Regular Show, but since RS is my fav cartoon on TV right now, that's perfectily fine.

    It's not as good as Phineas and Ferb, but it's WAY better than Fish Hooks.

    Gravity Falls is probably the best cartoon i have seen in the Disney Channel in a long time :D
    I stop watching the Disney Channel ever since they started showing High School Musical and Hanna Montanna :ack: Phineas and Ferb is a okay show
    I saw the promo for the show and i really enjoy it

    The gnome thing surprised me too. I just figured that the hints from the book were just there for a joke, so that was a nice use of the book. The use of the cart definitely made me think of Regular Show and I can understand why people would think that this show would fit more on Cartoon Network than Disney Channel.

    I completely agree. While I think I had a better first impression with this series than I recall having for Phineas and Ferb, I don't think that the series is that good just yet. Depending on how future episodes turn out, I think that it could be as good as Phineas and Ferb, or at least close to it. It's much better than Fish Hooks though. Gravity Falls does have more creativity than Fish Hooks and a better setup than fish in a highschool. Hopefully, it does continue to be enjoyable and improves as the series progresses.

    There is another code that flashes for a split second just after the Gravity Falls logo in the opening."VWDQ LV QRM ZKDW KH VHHPV" - it uses the same decoding method as mentioned before and says: "Stan is not what he seems"

    There's also a clue to the clues, as it were, hidden in the theme song- there's a whispered message at the end that says "three letters back" when played backwards. (The theme song doesn't really sound that bad backwards, to be honest).

    I've been noticing a lot of positive talk about this show lately, so I finally gave it a try the other day. And I think I'm a fan. I've seen five episodes so far, and really enjoyed all of them. It sort of feels like Spongebob meets Adventure Time, and is another of those rare shows that seems to do everything right. It's hilarious, the characters seem well-developed and are likeable, it's slightly edgy and doesn't pull punches (characters regularly die on-screen!), the episodes' morals are believably delivered, and so on. There's a lot to like.

    I'll definitely keep watching, and I expect to be sticking with this one for a while.

    What I want to know, do we have a snowballs chance in a hot place of ever getting a nice proper Gravity Falls DVD release? Disney isn't exactly known for their quality treatment of their televised toons when it comes to DVD releases.

    Yeah that's pretty fake. Besides not having an actual legit source, the only "sources" link to the same circle of stories with no real evidence (including your post).

    Yeah, that story sounds incredibly fake. Since it only goes to two other forums that don't provide any evidence and the summary of this story sounds too ridiculous to be true, I think that this is just a rumor.

    We finally get confirmation on when new episodes will start via the boss man himself.
