For Disney Channel and Disney XD, Alex Hirsch created the mystery-comedy animated television series, Gravity Falls. It debuted on June 15, 2012, and finished on February 15, 2016.
The show centers on the exploits of Dipper Pines (Jason Ritter) and his twin sister Mabel (Kristen Schaal), who are going to spend the summer with their great-uncle (or “Grunkle”) Stan (Hirsch) in Gravity Falls, Oregon, an eerie town rife with strange occurrences and supernatural animals. The children assist Stan in running “The Mystery Shack,” the tourist trap he owns, while also looking into local mysteries.

2013 San Diego Comic-Con with series creator Alex Hirsch
The Simpsons, a well-known animated sitcom, was series creator Alex Hirsch’s main source of inspiration while he was growing up. He noted that “Compared to live action, the animation may be funnier.
That animation wasn’t limited to children. the possibility of it being satirical, observant, and based on a sense of character interaction “.\
Following his graduation from the California Institute of the Arts, Pendleton Ward, the man behind Adventure Time, teamed up with Hirsch to work as a writer and storyboard artist on the Cartoon Network series The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack.
