Alex Hirsch, veteran Disney contributor on such series as Fish Hooks and The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack, is the creator of Gravity Falls, an animated Disney Channel series. Hirsch also serves as co-writer as well as providing the voices of several of the series' characters.
Set in Gravity Falls, Oregon, the series centers around twins Dipper and Mabel Pines, who've been sent live with their eccentric great-uncle (Grunkle) Stan, who operates (and lives in) The Mystery Shack, aka "the world's most bizarre museum." The twins soon discover that The Mystery Shack holds many unusual secrets, including secret stairways and that "Grunkle," for all his eccentricities, is actually quite normal compared to most of the town's citizens.
One unique aspect of Gravity Falls is a running cryptogram that viewers are challenged to solve in each episode. This rare "interactive" feature has drawn critical acclaim for its attempt to involve the audience in a manner that encourages problem-solving, especially among younger viewers.
