#9 Dipper's voice


We almost lose our beloved voice of Dipper!!! Jason Ritter who voiced for Dipper was almost got replaced as by the time Disney picked it up, he had already committed to another show. However, that show was canceled and we got our Dipper back.

#10 Unaired

And the last fact that you may have your mind blown up.
Before the right edition was aired, there was another one (the left). From the first episode of the left edition, Alex was confusing as it was not what he expected. That’s the history of our Gravity Falls edition nowadays. You can find the old one with “Gravity Falls unaired pilot” on Youtube.
It's a pity that the show ended but I believe we all have our childhood friends from the series and a lot of laughs, memories bringing with us.
