That was the most wonderfully, magnificently, perfectly, beautifully fucked up 22 minutes of animation I have ever seen.  Written flawlessly, executed brilliantly, and animated masterfully.

I applaud Disney for giving this show a chance to exist, and I pray that the neurotic, conservative parents of the world can understand the difference between fantasy and reality, and how they apply to telling a genuinely engaging story.

Animated programming does not have to be diluted, nor does it have to present itself in a manner strictly dressed for a single target demographic.  A cartoon can manage to be simultaneously lighthearted, foreboding, touching, and thrilling - as long as it’s given the opportunity.  Disney has given Gravity Falls that opportunity.  And Gravity Falls has proven itself ready to take those reins.

I have a feeling we are in for quite a ride.
