    They call him Gruncle Stan because he’s their GReat Uncle

  2. this vlog could have used more disposable cameras

  3. Even if I think that the 2nd and the 3rd episodes are pretty good on their own rights, I consider them the “least” good of the show. Maybe because I think that it gets better and better with everyone of them or maybe because the creators start introducing more plot to them. The mysteries start show more.

    But these are still good.

    I guess it doesn’t matter, Rob, but it’s Soos, not Zeus. Took me like five episodes to get his name down.

    Guess with the new site, I need a new name….ChannelWheelchair. Yeeeeaaaahhhhh

  5. I really liked this episode. It was really well written. I also really liked and was shocked by Gruncle Stan, he was hilarious.

  6. Did you know that the creator of the show, Alex Hirsch, voices Grunkle Stan (the Pines Twins’ great-uncle), Soos (not Zeus), Old Man McGuckett, the gnomes and dozens of other characters? -insert “the More You Know” here-

  7. am I the only one who actually thinks Mabel is kind of annoying? I don’t know, I don’t really like her.

  8. Why did the site change all of the sudden, did I miss a announcement?

    I’m waiting for the first episode that you don’t like, mostly because personally I’ve enjoyed every gravity falls episode so far, plus I’m just curious which one its going to be.

    Gravity fall has so many moments that just make you go “is this a kids show?”, not as much as adventure time or regular show but still a lot especially in season 2.

    I’m also not really sure about the 2000’s culturally, that’s weird since I grew up during that decade.

  9. Please do a V-log about the short specials of the show. They have awesome comedie but also a lot of clues about some secrets from the show.

  10. Actually, that glass pane joke was made first by The Simpsons, in the episode Sweets and Sour Marge.

  11. The 2000s, at least for some TV shows, brought out the more serialized cartoons, such as the TMNT 2k3, Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, Spectacular Spider-Man, etc. What the actual 10 years (14, really) was… I’m unsure about that.

  12. One of the things that I noticed– because I like Grunkle Stan too– is that in TV comedies and sitcoms (not so much movies), my favorite character is the cynic or the drunken cynic (because many of them are CONSTANTLY inebriated). Just that character that has a negative outlook on life, who never has anything good to say, and is better at alienating people than befriending them. In a lot of comedies and sitcoms, I often find that the drunken cynic is the funniest character in the show.


    This is an incredibly funny episode and I totally agree about Stan. He’s one of my favorite characters because he’s such an awful human being but he’s that perfectly lovable kind of awful. He’s also one of the most interesting, for reasons revealed by the end of the first season and going into the second. I can’t wait for us to learn more about him and see his character development!

  14. I think that when we are young certain things tend to be overlooked. When we look at those “good old days” in retrospective we remember our own experiences about fashion, movies, games, cartoons, but maybe it’s all about perspective. This decade may seem as if it doesn’t have an identity of its own but maybe the 80s and 90s where too at some point. Maybe on those years there were people that complained that their decades (60s or 70s) had a defined fashion but those not. I mean, not everyone dressed the same on the 80s or 90s, those where stereotypes that we took for granted as children because we only knew what we watched on TV or movies. 

  15. I really hope “BUT THE CHART SAYS” will be a Sibling Rivalry running gag. Funniest thing they’ve come up with in a long time!

    • And I’m a 90s kid but I grew up with 80s stuff so Gravity Falls is the perfect show for me! It’s all very interesting how the decades change, what gets carried over and what doesn’t, what holds up, etc… Doug should do an editorial on that theme! It’s about freaking nostalgia, what parents grew up with that gets passed down, so it’s perfect!

  16. DOUG! Why did you not give a video regarding the site change? Or did you are you just trying to keep us on our toes? I know what I’ll be doing this week: catching up with channel awesome videos! Also, I suppose I need to check this show out since the 80’s and 90’s are my favorite eras.

  17. This was the first episode of the show that I ended up watching. I enjoyed it well enough, but I had yet to see what some of my friends and the general internet frenzy was about. I later ended up watching the first and third episodes, and by then I was hooked. It’s a fun episode, but it does give the false impression that Gravity Falls is just a Scooby Doo knockoff.

  18. “My ex-wife still misses me… but her aim is gettin’ better! Her aim is gettin’ better! You see, it’s funny because marriage is terrible.”

    This episode was really funny, especially the stuff with Grunkle Stan and the disposable cameras.

  19. McGucket’s genius definitely comes back in season 2. Also, my favorite quote for this episode was already taken…

  20. When it comes to “decades”, most people really only focus on a few years. The 60’s is the perfect example of this. People think Beatles, Woodstock, hippies, drugs, the assassinations, a few riots, and the moon landing. It mostly ignores the first half of the decade and even then ignores that most people weren’t even involved in any of that.

  21. I personally find that through the show, you feel that that the creator’s care for their work instead of making it for corporate profit. The legitimately want to make a world and character’s that you care about and that they can express their creativity to the viewers. In fact, Alex made a fake leak that he put on a show for and literally trolled a lot of people. Yeah, you can see that as harsh, but hey, how often do you see that happen with a show’s creator?
