Sorry if I'm retreading old ground here, but I couldn't find any recent threads about this show unless you count laughing at the Russian bootleg. How did Gravity Falls, one of my favorite cartoons ever, go from one of the hottest and most talked about cartoons of early 2010s, to pretty much being dead? Don't tell me it's because it ended either. There is still plenty of fan content and requests to bring back things like Danny Phantom or Hey Arnold that also ended long ago. It seems that most of the content creators (fanartists, writers and the like) have moved onto greener pastures. I think plenty of people including myself were disappointed in the ending and the overall rushed feeling of the production after Ford was introduced. How did Alex Hirsch go from being the undisputed king of animation in that same time frame to being an unemployed nobody who rants about Donald Trump on twitter all day? I heard about some things on Fox and him co-writing some Pikachu movie, but it feels like a fall from grace after being pretty much the biggest name in animation since Matt Groening.
