When are they gonna get to the fireworks factory?
I thought Gravity Falls ended?
I always wonder how many jokes like this come as a "fuck you" to suggestions from higher up about show/character direction. They seemed really blatant in Rick and Morty at least.
It's hard to say. I mean, Gravity Falls is a Disney series, but it occasionally flirts with some of the darkest content ever seen on kids' TV, and has a general style of comedy that lines right up with classic Simpsons (just without curse words.) So you'd think that Disney would be on Alex Hirsch's ass to sanitize the show, but from what he's said publicly, Disney was actually really hands off.
When he turned in his first script, which opens with two terrified 12 year olds driving a golf cart while being chased by "a being of unimaginable horror," he was sure Disney would cut it to ribbons.
Instead he only got one note: Please add seat belts to the golf cart.

I'm glad they gave it a proper ending instead of milking it to death and letting it be absorbed and mangled by internet subcultures.
The absorbing and mangling will happen. It happens to everything on the internet.
You need to watch it. I've been telling you to watch Gravity Falls for a long time now. It's great (Almost as good as Steven Universe).
I dunno, I'm undecided on Gravity Falls. I do need something new to watch...
Who's the grunge chick? How often does she flash her panties?
That's Wendy, she doesn't flash panties, because she always wears pants.
It's a brilliant cartoon, not one of your trite animes.
OK, well, how often does she flash her bra then? Do any monsters steal her clothes? Dissolve them?
You're right, though. This doesn't seem much like an anime. It seems more like a cross between the Simpsons and Invader Zim.
Just the other day, Hirsch was hinting around at the idea that they'd be willing to make more at some point... which is kind bleh.
Monkey Napoleon, I'd have nothing against that. It would likely be treated like another series like Korra was to Avatar the last Airbender.

"What, did they kill everyone?"
Oh, you missed an amazing ending, Homer. Fatty there roofie-raped Grunge Girl late in season 2 and actually knocked her up, so she went crazy and killed him when she found out, then just went on a murderous rampage. The final episode of the four-part finale was just her gunning down townsfolk before setting off a homemade nuclear bomb (as with most shows these days, they made Grunge Girl the "offbeat genius inventor" type) and annihilated the entire town in one horrific climax.
Like so much of this show, it's surprising that Disney let Hirsch get away with all that, but it was hilarious and touching all the same.
See Cena? THAT'S the way to sell a fuckin' show! Thanks, SMA, I'm going to watch it now.
I like that he's dressed as Kid Vid from the Burger King Kid's Club.
Kid Vid wore a short-sleeved jacket, not a vest, and a VR headset, not a pair of sunglasses. But the influence is there, and it is very much appreciated.

No, you're the fat child-man who fell in love with a homicidal dating game.
(and it's why you're my favorite)
