Critic Reviews for Gravity Falls Season 1

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

A beautiful blend of old-fashioned storytelling-the Pines kids and their array of friends and co-workers often recall the Scoobs as they investigate-with a modern sense of humor that never feels like it's talking down to kids.

Feb 1, 2019 | Full Review…

So we've got romance, adventure and tween/teen pop culture humor, all assembled by 26-year-old Alex Hirsch.

Sep 10, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Kristen Schaal completely steals the show.

The show has a breezy quality that should play to kids, and tickle some twinges of nostalgia among their parents.

Gently twisted, with some Disneyfied action and heart-warming folded in.

Sep 10, 2018 | Full Review…

It may be aimed at the 12 and under crowd, but Gravity Falls has something for everyone: it's smart, funny and sometimes even scary, but the most astounding thing about the series is that it just keeps getting better.

Feb 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Best described as a must-watch for the full-grown adults who anxiously await the Halloween Lego mini-figures collection each year. It really is just that bloody good.

Feb 1, 2019 | Full Review…

I don't care how old you are, if you're not watching Gravity Falls you're missing out on some of the cleverest, most enjoyable television you can find.

Feb 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Smart, satirical, and sweet, Gravity Falls was a one-of-a-kind gem.

Feb 1, 2019 | Full Review…

Just when you think cookie-cutter cartoon series have become the norm, out of nowhere comes this slightly irreverent comedy.

Audience Reviews for Gravity Falls: Season 1

    Gravity Falls is what I would call the pinicale of childrens television, it is so intriguing to see Dipper and Mabel look for adventure and makes me want to go on an adventure as well. It has just the right amount of humour, and childish fun so people of any age can find bucket loads of entertainment out of it. This show is a must watch and just amazing!

    The show Gravity Falls is filled with many twists and turns and can keep anyone entertained for its run time of 21 minutes. The kids in the show- Mabel and Dipper- find themselves in situations that are so well written, that it can be difficult to tell where the story is going. Because the imagination of the writers of this show is beyond anyone's wildest dreams, every show feels like a unique experience. The series also has many great morals for kids that it expertly communicates. This series is an absolute must-see for any kid, and could probably entertain most adults!

    I absolutely loved this show. they have lovable characters, a script well written and one that makes you want more. season one also sets up season two. It is also a relatable show with shows growing up and has very relatable down to earth characters. This is probably the most underrated show of all time! Again, loved it.

    Easily the best animated show ever produced by Disney! It's just a perfect blend of good quality humor that covers the deep dark secrets of Gravity Falls that perfectly showcases typical american superstition and conspiracy with hilarious and loveable characters exploring mysteries of this twisted town.
