The Mystery of Gravity Falls


Animation Magazine has a really great article from right before Gravity Falls aired that talks about Alex’s inspirations for the show as well as his thought process. Here’s a small preview of what you can expect.

“There aren’t many 22-minute animated comedy shows for children,” he explains. “Kids’ shows are usually 11-minute long episodes. I tend to watch the longer ones. I personally want a bigger story, higher stakes, deeper conflicts. I want comedy, and I like it fast-paced but I think it should be layered over something that has more meat to it. Every episode of our show has some really honest observation—nothing too deep, but a real character conflict or arc. I think that’s what I’m proudest of.”
