And "Gravity Falls: Six Strange Tales" brings together the first six episodes of this strangely addictive show, which might draw in even people who don't usually like kids' cartoons. It's gleefully surreal, slightly dark and very tongue-in-cheek -- sort of like one of the more successful Adult Swim series, but minus the sex and graphic violence.
Twelve-year-old Dipper and Mabel Pines are spending the summer with their Grunkle Stan, an elderly con-man who runs the Mystery Shack (a ramshackle museum of bizarre, mostly fake items). However, Dipper is kind of worried about staying in Gravity Falls, where weird things seem to happen on a near-daily basis (his mosquito bites spell out BEWARB).
Then Dipper finds a mysterious book that reveals the many secrets of Gravity Falls, and Mabel meets a strange, extremely-pale boy. She hopes he's a Twilight-style vampire, but Dipper is afraid he's a zombie. The truth... is a lot stranger than either theory.
This is only the beginning of the twins' strange adventures -- polygamous gnomes, a wax figure who loses his head, an expedition to find a mythical sea monster (for money!), a convenience store with malevolent ghosts, manly minotaurs who teach Dipper how to be a real man, and a malevolent bloblike Southern boy who takes a shine to Mabel (and hates her family).
"Gravity Falls" reminds me a little of those weird Adult Swim cartoons, except this one is appropriate for kids. Even though I find most kids' shows to be as annoying as gnomes, this one is strangely addictive -- partly because it's just so unabashedly strange.Read more ›
I've downloaded them on iTunes but serious collectors will want the DVDs also if there are posters and journals.
