Recap / Gravity Falls S1 E9 "The Time Traveler's Pig"
"Hey, you! Toolbelt! You ruined my life!"
Dipper: Here it is Mabel. Our ticket to any moment in history.
Mabel: Let's get two dodos and force them to make out!
The ninth episode of Gravity Falls.
At a fair hosted by Stan, Dipper ruins a chance to impress Wendy — in fact, driving her into Robbie's arms — while Mabel wins a pig she names Waddles. Then Dipper gets his hands on a device lost by a time traveler from the future, and decides to use it to go back in time and fix his mistake — but it turns out that doing so will cost Mabel her new pet.
Tropes in this episode:
- 2D Visuals, 3D Effects: Used for the Ferris wheel.
- Actually Pretty Funny: Everyone laughs at Robbie's humiliation when hot water makes his pants shrink, even Wendy, his new girlfriend.
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: Discussed by Mabel and Dipper, regarding Robbie.
Mabel: He is such a jerk.

Mabel: Don't worry, brother. Whatever happens I'll be right here, supporting you every step of the— OHMYGOSHAPIG!! (runs off in excitement)
- Awesomeness by Analysis: Dipper manages to calculate a baseball throw with such precision that it not only wins Wendy the prize without hitting her, but also goes on a Rube Goldberg-esque path throughout the carnival, destroys Robbie's snowcone, and lands in Dipper's hat. He needed Mabel to adjust a rain gutter at the right moment to pull it off, but it's still awesome.
- Bad Future:
- So apparently, in the future, a time baby will destroy everything and take over humanity. On the plus side, humanity gets time travel.
- On a smaller scale, Dipper refusing to help save Waddles because it would blow his shot at Wendy causes a despondent Mabel to lean against the Shack's totem pole and refuse to leave. Dipper waits more than a month — until Mabel is covered with vines and has been incorporated into the tour — to go back in time to help her.
- Big "NO!": Mabel's reaction when she loses Waddles to Pacifica in one of the alternate timelines.

- In the end credits, we're reshown the three scenes from past episodes where Blendin made background appearances.
- Chekhov's Gun: Soos speculating on what it would take to trigger the rigged dunk tank target early in the episode.
- Continuity Cavalcade: Dipper and Mabel's fight over the time machine ends up sending them tumbling around the background of the show's first three episodes.

Stan: There it is, Mabel, the cheapest fair money can rent. I spared every expense.
- Cuteness Proximity: The pig has this effect on Mabel.
- Double Meaning: When Dipper is about to willingly lose Wendy to Robbie so Mabel can win Waddles again, he tries to make her understand that people make mistakes and tight jeans are overrated.
Wendy: Dude, you lost me.
Dipper: I know.
- E = MC Hammer: How Dipper tries to figure out how to avoid hitting Wendy with the baseball.

- Friend or Idol Decision: Dipper does find a way to win the stuffed animal for Wendy and prevent Robbie from asking her out, but it requires Mabel to lose the chance to win Waddles, making her miserable. Dipper decides that Mabel being happy is more important.
- Funny Background Event: Two of them; First, Dipper sees Wendy agree to date Robbie for the first time and a heart-shaped balloon pops behind him. Later, when Dipper finally succeeds in winning Wendy a prize, a guy behind him wins the strongman game and someone shouts "We have a winner!"
- Girls Love Stuffed Animals: Wendy and the Duck/Panda. She declares she wants one upon seeing them as prizes, and when Dipper finally wins one for her, she has an enormous grin on her face.
Wendy: This is the best present ever.
- Heroic BSoD: After losing Waddles, Mabel goes through one that lasts at least a day, a week, and a month.
- In the Hood: After Dipper shows him up, Robbie hides his face in his hood, his nose still sticking out.
- Ironic Echo: "Everything's different now." The first time it was said cheerfully by Mabel after she won the pig. The second time it was said by Dipper, with pure despair in his voice, after losing Wendy to Robbie.
- Losing a Shoe in the Struggle: Dipper loses one of his shoes when he chases Mabel through the events of past episodes, and leaves it behind in a past timeline. When Lolph and Dundgren make Blendin Blandin go back and correct all the time paradoxes, he's seen collecting Dipper's shoe as evidence.

- Not Helping Your Case: When Blendin tries to point out that it was Dipper and Mabel causing all the chaos he's been blamed for he calls Waddles the pig their leader. Lolph and Dundgren are less than impressed.
- Necessary Fail: Turns out in order for Dipper to not hit Wendy with the baseball, Mabel has to lose Waddles.
- Only One Me Allowed Right Now: A strange, unexplained variant is shown in this episode: No matter how many times Dipper and Mabel use Blendin's time machine to travel back to the start of Stan's fair, there is no instance of either of their time travel duplicates at all.
- Place Beyond Time: Subverted. Dipper and Mabel believe that they traveled all the way to the end of time. They didn't. They were inside a Port-A-John.
- Protagonist-Centered Morality: Dipper and Mabel steal Blendin's time machine and end up ruining his life and causing all sorts of Time Paradoxes. They don't express any regret or guilt for it, and Blendin's arrest and trial are both played for laughs.
- Rhetorical Question Blunder: Blendin admonishes the twins for stealing his time machine, telling them "Do you have any idea how many rules you just broke?" Then he adds that he's actually asking that, because he wasn't there to document their rule-breaking.
- Self-Fulfilling Prophecy: Blendin is sent back to prevent a series of time anomalies that occurred only because Dipper and Mabel got their hands on his time machine.
- Set Right What Once Went Wrong: The premise of the episode in the view point of Dipper. He can't fix it because hitting Wendy in the eye was meant to happen.
- "Shaggy Dog" Story: At the end, Dipper undoes the effect of the time travel: Wendy and Robbie start dating and Mabel wins Waddles.
- Shaped Like Itself:
- Mabel names her pig Waddles, because it waddles.
- And its previous name was Fifteen Poundy.
- When Dipper and Mabel end up in pioneer times, this exchange occurs.
Pioneer 1: Be on the lookout for mountain lions, travelers.
Pioneer 2:(waving a canteen around) Dysentery, who wants dysentery?
Pioneer 3: Forge ahead mighty oxen for a new life awaits us on this (with emphasis)Oregon Trail.
- Considering the episode's plot, the twins' brief excursion to the Mesozoic is almost certainly a deliberate nod to "A Sound of Thunder." Fortunately, on this show it's easier to Set Right What Once Went Wrong.
- The two Time Police who show up at the end are named Lolph and Dundgren.
- "That'll do, pig. That'll do."
- When Dipper and Mabel end up in pioneer times, this exchange occurs.

- Squee!: Mabel does this when she thinks the pig said her name.
- Talking Animal: Mabel thinks Waddles is one of these.
- Tempting Fate: Soos comments that the only thing that could possibly cause the rigged dunk tank to dunk Stan is a "futuristic laser arm-cannon." Guess what happens at the end of the episode.
- Throw the Dog a Bone: Dipper has to let Wendy get hit by the baseball so Robbie can ask her to go steady, but Mabel has Waddles make a fool of Robbie.
- Time-Travel Episode: The main plot focuses on Dipper and Mabel traveling back in time to change the day's outcome.
- Time Police: Near the end of the episode, two of them show up to arrest Blendin because of Dipper and Mabel abusing the time travel device.
- Torches and Pitchforks: These are broken out when Mabel declares herself a witch to the guy running the pig stand.
- Tunnel of Love: Robbie and Wendy go on "The Tunnel of Love and Corndogs" after becoming a couple. Dipper and Wendy go on it when Dipper manages to win her a prize.

"Don't worry, brother. Whatever happens, I'll be right here, supporting you every step of the OH MY GOSH A PIG!!!"
Waddles Pig Gravity Falls
List of Gravity Falls characters
The Disney Channeltelevision seriesGravity Falls created by Alex Hirsch features an extensive cast of characters. All of the characters listed have appeared in the first and second seasons.
- Dipper Pines (voiced by Jason Ritter) – The year-old twin brother of Mabel Pines, born 5 minutes after Mabel. He is armed with the journal marked "3" that he discovered in the woods. It has helped him solve the countless mysteries of Gravity Falls. As an adventurer, Dipper has trouble sitting still and is always looking for the next riddle to solve, leaving him restless in mundane situations. His attention to detail seems to be helpful when solving mysteries, but others question his credibility because of his zeal. He is considered to be wise beyond his years and cannot wait to grow up and become a man. Portrayed as goal-oriented and rooted in the facts, he sometimes overthinks possible scenarios and obsessively makes lists, which also makes him much more perceptive to the real danger Gravity Falls faces. Between seasons, Dipper hosted a series titled "Dipper's Guide to the Unexplained". It is revealed in one of the episodes that Dipper has a crush on Wendy. While he knows in his heart that he will never really be Wendy's boyfriend, that does not stop him from doing everything in his power to please her. In another episode it is revealed that he likes bubblegum pop music. He got his nickname from a birthmark on his forehead that is shaped like the Big Dipper. His formal name was never revealed during the series, but was later revealed to be Mason in the release of Journal 3.
- Mabel Pines (voiced by Kristen Schaal) – The year-old twin sister of Dipper Pines, born 5 minutes before Dipper. Mabel is an eccentric, buoyant, and energetic optimist, who expresses herself through an assortment of colorful knitted sweaters, as well as her skills in various arts and crafts. Her outgoing, curious personality often helps Dipper solve mysteries, though her silliness is often seen as a burden. Mabel enjoys preteen novels and seeks romance (especially in vampires). Despite what she sees as dating obscurity in Gravity Falls, Mabel stays optimistic. She once went out on a date with Li'l Gideon, but broke it off quickly when she realized that Gideon was dangerous and nearly killed her brother. In the episode "Irrational Treasure", she is made an official U.S. congresswoman by the eighth-and-a-half president, Quentin Trembley, with a political platform of "legalize everything". She wins a pet pig in the episode "The Time Traveler's Pig" and names it Waddles. She also makes guest appearances in "Dipper's Guide to the Unexplained", but has her own series titled "Mabel's Guide to Life". Both of these shows aired in between seasons. Mabel is inspired by Alex Hirsch's own twin sister, Ariel.
- Grunkle Stan (voiced by Alex Hirsch as an adult and Declan J. Krogman as a child) – The great uncle of Dipper and Mabel Pines, best characterized by his selfishness and abrasiveness. He runs and lives in the Mystery Shack, a tourist trap which is billed as "the world's most bizarre museum". Grunkle Stan is a salesman first and foremost, putting most of his effort into showmanship, and is eager to sell the Shack's knick-knacks, trinkets and baubles for exorbitant prices. Because of his drive to make money, his methods of obtaining it aren't always legal. When he's not making money, he's usually at home watching television. Stan usually wears a fez (the symbol on it is a Pac-Man fish which has changed over the episodes), carries around an 8-ball topped cane, and infrequently wears an eyepatch over his glasses – the last of which is expressly for personal image. He frequently sends the twins on what they consider to be outrageous and unpredictable errands, but he is protective of them and loves them unconditionally. Despite his age and questionable physique, Stan is physically fit to the point of being able to fight back when threatened, even against zombies and pterodactyls. Behind his vending machine, he has a hidden staircase to an unknown location. In the season 1 finale, this location is revealed to contain a large hidden device which is powered by encrypted information in the three journals. Stan has the first journal, Li'l Gideon had the second and Dipper has the third. Later on, he collects all three after Li'l Gideon's arrest and when Dipper shows him the third one. He later returns the third journal back to Dipper. As revealed in "Not What He Seems", he was attempting to get his twin brother back from another dimension. To defeat Bill in the series finale, Stan sacrifices his memory, but regains it after seeing Mabel's scrapbook. He has been going by the name Stanford Pines, the name of his twin brother, and his real name is Stanley. He is based on Alex Hirsch's grandfather Stan.
- Jesus Alzamirano "Soos" Ramirez (voiced by Alex Hirsch) is the year-oldHispanichandyman at the Mystery Shack. A friend of Dipper and Mabel, Soos is a portly, adventurous, lovable man-child with buck teeth frequently compared to those of a beaver. He often drives the twins around town when they need. He's rather clumsy, not the brightest in the group, and often makes mistakes. Despite this, he has a wide variety of talents, including engineering, DJing and pinball, and enjoys anime gun-swords and bonding with Dipper by doing "boy stuff" such as heating hot dogs in a microwave until they explode. He says "dude" after almost every sentence. In "Blendin's Game", his birthday was revealed to be July It was also revealed he didn't have a good father-son relationship with his dad. At the end of the series, after Ford and Stan leave Gravity Falls behind, Soos becomes the new Mr. Mystery of the Mystery Shack. After breaking up with his dating sim girlfriend, GIFfany, Soos enters a long-distance relationship with a girl from Portland named Melody, who moves to Gravity Falls and becomes the Mystery Shack's new cashier after he takes over. Hirsch based the character on Jesus Chambrot, an animator he was friends with at CalArts. Hirsch emulates Jesus' "blunt-like consonance" way of speaking through Soos' voice.
- Wendy Corduroy (voiced by Linda Cardellini) – A mellow, tomboyish, laid-back year-old part-time employee at the Mystery Shack. She is Dipper's crush, and several episodes focus on his misguided attempts to impress her. Wendy has stated that she had many boyfriends in the past, including one ex-boyfriend with whom she cannot remember breaking up. Wendy is the oldest and tallest child in her family; her father is Manly Dan, one of the local lumberjacks of Gravity Falls. Throughout the series she proves herself to be her "father's daughter", having experience as a lumberjack, tremendous physical strength, and apocalypse survival skills, which prove useful in dangerous situations. Being a typical sociable and nonchalant teen, she has many friends who are around her age. Her boyfriend at the start of the series is Robbie, whom Dipper despises and sees as a rival until she breaks up with him. Wendy almost always stands up for Dipper in front of Robbie.
- Bill Cipher (voiced by Alex Hirsch) – Bill Cipher is a powerful interdimensional demon that can be summoned and released into a person's mind and the main antagonist of the series. He resembles a one-eyed yellow triangle superficially similar to the Eye of Providence wearing a top hat and a bow tie. Bill first appears physically in "Dreamscaperers;" however, many references to him are hidden in previous episodes as images or sentences that flash across the screen. He has a snappy sense of humor but loses his temper quite easily due to impatience. He can read people's minds and memories, shift forms, warp reality, maintain cross-dimensional awareness, possess bodies, encrypt and decrypt codes, and shoot laser energy blasts from his eye and fingers. In "Dreamscaperers," Li'l Gideon summons Bill to steal Stan's deed to the Mystery Shack. The two of them agree that if Bill goes into Stan's mind and steals the combination to the safe where the deed is hidden, Gideon will eventually have to help Bill with his mysterious plans. Bill claims he could use Dipper, Mabel, and Soos against the "darkness coming", though he could've said this to throw them off his true plans. In the episode "Sock Opera" he tricks Dipper into making a deal with him, and briefly possesses Dipper's body until Mabel fights him at the puppet show and forces him out. In "Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future" he possesses Blendin' in order to release a dimensional rift to escape into the mainstream dimension. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1" he creates a physical form to freely exist in the human dimension without possessing anyone, unleashes various monsters from his home dimension, takes over Gravity Falls, and begins to capture and petrify those who stand in his way, even going to the point of breaking Gideon out of prison and making him Sheriff. In "Weirdmageddon Part 2" he realizes that an invisible force field is disabling him from taking over other parts of the world. In "Weirdmageddon Part 3", He tries to get Ford to tell him how to disable the force field and take Weirdmaggedon worldwide, but Ford never cooperates. He is apparently destroyed for good by Stan, who tricks him by pretending to be Ford and letting Bill enter his mind to get the formula, allowing the real Ford to erase him from existence using the memory gun, leaving behind his petrified body. However, his distorted last words, when played in reverse, are revealed to be "A-X-O-L-O-T-L, my time has come to burn! I invoke the ancient power that I may return!" Journal 3 reveals that Bill came from a second dimension which he destroyed in his thirst for power, and took over the Nightmare Realm. He planned to take over Earth because the Nightmare Realm was inherently unstable and would eventually collapse in on itself. His name may be either a pun on the Beale ciphers or a reference to the Eye of Providence that appears on the dollar bill. Film director David Lynch was asked to voice Bill, but declined. Hirsch voices the character with what he calls a "bad impression" of Lynch as his Twin Peaks character, Gordon Cole. Cipher also had a cameo in The Simpsons episode "Bart's in Jail!", with Hirsch reprising his role.
- Stanford Filbrick "Ford" Pines (also known as The Author and Grunkle Ford as of the episode "The Last Mabelcorn"; voiced by J. K. Simmons as an adult and by Christian Mardini as a child) – Stan's six-fingered long-lost identical twin brother and the mysterious person who wrote all three of the journals. He returns from an alternate dimension through a portal underneath the Mystery Shack in "Not What He Seems" after being absent since In "The Last Mabelcorn", he recounts his friendship with Bill Cipher and how he attempted to create a teleporter to enter his realm. In the present, when he learns of Bill's plan to invade the mainstream dimension, he destroys the teleporter, but at the cost of a dimensional rift leaking out of it, which he contains. In "Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future", Bill tricks Mabel into releasing the rift, causing Weirdmageddon. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1" he attempts to defeat Bill, but is captured, petrified and his journals are destroyed. He is later freed and restored of his humanity. After Weirdmageddon, he tells Stan that he found some remaining anomalies and offers him to go sailing around the world to find them, which Stan accepts.
- Pacifica Elise Northwest (voiced by Jackie Buscarino) – Pacifica is the most popular girl in Gravity Falls. She comes from a wealthy family, being the great-great-granddaughter of the supposed founder of Gravity Falls, Nathaniel Northwest the real founder of Gravity Falls being Quentin Trembley (8 1/2th President of the United States). Pacifica is an unfriendly, sarcastic, and spoiled girl who is Mabel's primary rival. Pacifica looks down on Mabel and thinks her eccentric personality is annoying and immature. She uses people's insecurities to manipulate them into doing whatever she wants and despises Mabel for standing up against her. She gets her comeuppance when Dipper reveals to her that her entire family's prestige is built on a lie, horrifying Pacifica. In the episode "The Golf War", she turns into Mabel's friend after she and Mabel thwart the Lilliputtians. Also, in the episode "Northwest Mansion Mystery," it is shown that she is afraid of standing up to her parents and disappointing them. Later though, she finds out all of the terrible things her family has done, she proves herself to be different from her family by defying her parents and opening up the Northwest Mansion gates to commoners (mostly to save Dipper). After this same episode both Pacifica and Dipper greatly improve their attitudes towards each other, and turned from almost strangers to friends. In "Weirdmageddon Pt. 3: Take Back the Falls", Pacifica takes refuge in the Mystery Shack with several of the remaining un-petrified citizens of Gravity Falls, with most of Gravity Falls in chaos as a result of Weirdmageddon, and she teams up with the Pines (due to Bill petrifying her parents) to defeat Bill. By the end of the series, she is good friends with the Pines family, even Mabel. Her name is a pun on Pacific Northwest, given the town of Gravity Falls is located in Oregon. In the graphic novel "Gravity Falls: Lost Legends", it is revealed that she was convinced that her appearance is important as a child through her mother's conviction (such as when her mother read her The Ugly Duckling right until the point in which the title character is mocked for his appearance), which led her to believe that she must be beautiful to be accepted, though she learns that she must be herself to be accepted while talking with Dipper, but it is also hinted that she has a crush on him.
- Waddles (voiced by Dee Bradley Baker; Neil deGrasse Tyson in "Little Gift Shop of Horrors") – Mabel's pet pig. She wins Waddles at a county fair, and their emotional bond remains inseparable. Waddles enjoys spending time with Mabel as much as she enjoys spending time with him.
- Candy Chiu and Grenda Grendinator (voiced by Niki Yang and Carl Faruolo, respectively) – Mabel's best friends whom she first meets at a party hosted by the Mystery Shack. Candy and Grenda are both considered unpopular by Pacifica Northwest and her more sociable friends because they have flaws: Candy is shy, insecure, and prone to socially atypical behaviors; while Grenda is physically robust and speaks with a deep, gruff, masculine voice she attributes to puberty. Mabel sees these qualities as endearing and thus finds two kindred spirits in Gravity Falls. The girls love Waddles as much as Mabel does and share common interests with her such as the paranormal, romance novels, preteen magazines, and the s-style boy band Sev'ral Timez. Although Grenda originally had no last name, it was suggested to Alex Hirsch by a fan of the show on Tumblr that her last name should be "Grendinator", and Hirsch pronounced it canon.
- Fiddleford Hadron "Old Man" McGucket (voiced by Alex Hirsch) – The "local kook" of Gravity Falls. Despite his apparent insanity and stereotypical hillbilly demeanor, Old Man McGucket is both a technical mastermind, capable of creating massive, complex animatronics (such as a robotic sea monster or a homicidal robot dinosaur) and a skilled chemist, to the point he was able to create a formula to alter a human's voice. His son works as a ranger at the lake, and the two seem to have a strained relationship, which adds to McGucket's insanity and need for attention. It is revealed "Society of the Blind Eye" that his full name is Fiddleford Hadron McGucket. Some of his backstory is revealed in "Society of the Blind Eye" and "A Tale of Two Stans": he was once a Steve Jobs/Bill Gates-style computer developer in 70s Palo Alto before being called in by Stanford Pines to work on his trans-dimensional portal. Upon accidentally entering the portal and glimpsing the other side, he was so overcome with horror that he invented a machine to allow him to forget the experience. Over time, he founded the Society of the Blind Eye to protect the people of Gravity Falls from the various monsters and anomalies by forcing them to forget their existence. Eventually, his overuse of the machine on his own mind drove him insane. Dipper and Mabel find this machine (along with the memories of the townspeople) and give Fiddleford back his memories, restoring his sanity. In "Weirdmageddon Pt. 3: Take Back the Falls", he assists the Pines in saving Ford by transforming the Mystery Shack into a giant robotic mech. He later moves into the Northwest Mansion. Journal 3 reveals he created the Memory Gun after being attacked by a Gremloblin, and created the Society of the Blind Eye to erase bad memories. Being sucked into the portal started his overuse of the Memory Gun and descent into insanity.
- Gompers the Goat (voiced by Dee Bradley Baker) – A stray goat who lives in the forest near the Mystery Shack. Gompers frequently enters the Mystery Shack uninvited and unannounced. He often annoys other characters, as he gets in the way of simple tasks.
- Gideon Charles Gleeful / "Li'l Gideon" (voiced by Thurop Van Orman) – Li'l Gideon is a young boy who owns the "Tent of Telepathy", a successful competitor of the Mystery Shack, and is instantly identifiable with his spoken Southern accent and massive, white pompadour hairstyle. He has a deep rivalry with Grunkle Stan that presumably started long before the twins arrived. Despite his cutesy and charming personality onstage, in reality he is conniving, vicious and more than willing to hurt or even kill whoever he wants to get his way; on more than one occasion he has even abused his own parents, threatening his father and apparently having reduced his mother to a nervous wreck some time ago. He also has an unhealthy obsession with Mabel, and his belief that Dipper and Stan are the only things keeping them apart, prevent him from seeing that Mabel doesn't like him at all. He previously owned an amulet that endowed him with telekinesis, but it was destroyed by Mabel after he attempted to use it to kill Dipper. It is shown that he owned the journal marked 2, the previous volume of the journal Dipper owned. He seems to be one of the only residents who is fully aware of the mysteries and secrets of Gravity Falls. Li'l Gideon's mission is to gain possession of the Mystery Shack, saying that it has 'a secret you couldn't possibly begin to imagine.' In the Season 1 finale, Stan successfully reveals to the townspeople that Li'l Gideon's psychic ability is a ruse and that Li'l Gideon is a fraud. Li'l Gideon is arrested by Sheriff Blubs shortly thereafter, although he quickly managed to turn his fellow inmates into more of his followers. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1" he and his fellow inmates escape from prison (due to a supersized Gompers eating the prison walls) and are made Bill's police force and guardians of a prison bubble Mabel is put in. After attempting to capture Dipper, Wendy and Soos, Dipper manages to convince Gideon that Mabel never loved him and Gideon has a change of heart and decides to rebel against Bill. In "Weirdmageddon Pt. 3: Take Back the Falls", he is revealed to have been captured by Bill, trapped in a cage and forced to dance for eternity, but he is freed after he tells Dipper and Mabel how to restore the humanity of the citizens Bill petrified. After Bill's defeat, he officially gives up his life of crime and tries to live life as a normal kid (although his fellow inmates still hurt those who make fun of him).
- Sheriff Blubs (voiced by Kevin Michael Richardson) – The sheriff of Roadkill County (the county that Gravity Falls is located in). He is shown to be rather lazy, often choosing to sit around and drink coffee instead of pursuing a case. Despite his apparent lack of police skills, he believes himself superior to all, and often looks down on the twins, which undermines their mystery-solving abilities. His lazy personality seems to stem from the extremely low crime rate in Gravity Falls, which is demonstrated when Deputy Durland once comments on how unused their equipment is. In the series finale he expresses his love for Deputy Durland.
- Deputy Durland (voiced by Keith Ferguson) – A police officer, Sheriff Blubs' partner and right-hand man. He is shown to be unintelligent and childlike where he cannot even read. Sheriff Blubs, however, seems to find these qualities endearing, and refers to him as a "diamond in the rough". Instead of "doing their duties", he and Sheriff Blubs like to joke around, ignoring their duty for the sake of having fun. In the end-credits scene of "Blendin's Game", it is revealed that in he used to work as a handyman at the Mystery Shack, but due to his unreliability and clumsiness Stan harshly fired him and replaced him with a year-old Soos (this probably took place before he met his dearest friend Sheriff Blubs). In "Weirdmageddon Part 1" Durland is among the citizens of Gravity Falls who are petrified by Bill's eye bats. At the end of Weirdmaggedon, he is restored to being human and reunited with Blubs. In the series finale he expresses his love for Sheriff Blubs.
- Robert Stacey "Robbie" Valentino (voiced by T.J. Miller) – A local emo rock music-loving teenager who is Dipper's primary rival for Wendy's affections. He is angsty and has a cynical attitude toward most characters. Though he seems to genuinely care for Wendy, he is still sometimes inconsiderate, such as neglecting to listen to Wendy while playing a video game in the episode "Fight Fighters". Robbie and Wendy are a couple until "Boyz Crazy", in which Dipper informs Wendy that the song Robbie wrote for her has a backmasked mind-controlling message, although Wendy is most upset that the song wasn't written for her. After the breakup, Robbie becomes greatly depressed about losing her, though his attempts to win her back or even mope only cause her (and everyone else) to stay annoyed with him. In the episode "The Love God", Robbie begins a relationship with Tambry, albeit due to Mabel matchmaking them via love potion in an attempt to cheer Robbie up. His parents are both undertakers, though their personalities are the polar opposite of their son's, possibly due to their work with the dead. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1", Robbie is among the citizens of Gravity falls who are captured and petrified by Bill's minions (Wendy states that this was because he stopped to take a selfie). He is rescued in "Weirdmageddon Pt. 3", and continues to unenthusiastically aid in his family's business.
- Buddy "Bud" Gleeful (voiced by Stephen Root) – Li'l Gideon's polite and well-meaning father. Despite having a nervous wife and a manipulative child, Bud seems to always find ways to make money, even to the point of becoming allies with Grunkle Stan (Li'l Gideon's mortal enemy) for a business deal. Besides working at Li'l Gideon's "Tent of Telepathy", Bud also sells used cars. He was also a member of the Society of the Blind Eye, and was spotted in the past in the episode "Blendin's Game", pushing a stroller with Gideon in it. In the episode "The Stanchurian Candidate", he runs for mayor of Gravity Falls, mostly being forced by Li'l Gideon so he could get him out of jail. This attempt is unsuccessful. He makes two brief appearances in the series finale: he is first seen using Gideon plushies to make a fire, then as a guest at Dipper and Mabel's birthday party.
- Preston and Priscilla Northwest – Preston (voiced by Nathan Fillion) and his wife, Priscilla (voiced by Kari Wahlgren) are Pacifica Northwest's wealthy and apparently snobby parents. Most of the time, Preston places heavy stress on Pacifica to ensure she maintains their family's image of perfection. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1", Preston has the unlucky fate of being the first citizen in Gravity Falls to be victimized by Bill. He attempts to become one of Bill's minions only for Bill to switch around Preston's facial features (much to the horror of Priscilla and Pacifica). In Pt. 3, it is revealed that both Preston and Priscilla were petrified by Bill's minions, but they are later restored to being human. However, they also go broke due to Preston investing all of his money towards Bill and at the end of the series, they are forced to sell their mansion to regain back their fortune, which happens when Fiddleford McGucket buys it. In Gravity Falls: Lost Legends, it is revealed that Priscilla is a trophy wife (literally, according to Pacifica, as Preston won her in a yachting competition).
- The Gnomes (voiced by Alex Hirsch) – The Gnomes appear in the first episode, where they capture Mabel Pines by disguising themselves as a boy named "Norman" for her to date (actually consisting of the gnomes Jeff, Carson, Steve, Jason, and Shmebulock) to try and make her their queen, only for her to be saved by Dipper. They appear as garden gnomes with pointed red caps and white beards, although they often run on all fours and have sharp teeth. The leader, Jeff, has sworn vengeance on the twins, but has yet to wreak it. Two of the gnomes, Shmebulock and his father, Shmebulock Sr., can only communicate by saying their names; in the Lost Legends book, this is revealed to be a result of a curse placed on them by a witch, and they are able to speak normally for a single night once every several centuries. The twins call on the gnomes later in the series to help take down a common enemy, but failed as Gideon forces them to carry them away.
- Agent Powers and Agent Trigger (voiced by Nick Offerman and Brad Abrell) – Agent Powers and Agent Trigger are agents of the US government. They went to Gravity Falls to investigate paranormal activity in the area. After Dipper raises the dead, the two are seen dragged off by zombies into a ditch. They later reappear alive at the end of the episode and are sure that Gravity Falls is the town they are looking for. In many episodes, they are secretly watching the Pines family, like in the background sitting in seats during the episode "Sock Opera" behind large newspapers, as well as in the after credits of "Northwest Mansion Mystery", talking about a power surge they measured during the party. They appear again in "Not What He Seems", where they arrest Grunkle Stan over suspicions that he is building a doomsday weapon. At the end of "A Tale of Two Stans", they (along with the rest of the government agents in their team investing the Mystery Shack) lose their memories of the portal due to the fact that Stanford used the Society of the Blind Eye device to erase their memories.
- Tambry (voiced by Jessica DiCicco) – Tambry is one of Wendy's friends. She has dyed hair and rarely looks up from her phone, either texting or updating her status. As of the episode "The Love God", she is in a relationship with Robbie. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1", she is among the citizens of Gravity Falls who are captured and petrified by Bill's minions. She is later restored to being human at the end of the series.
- Lee and Nate (voiced by Mike Rianda and Scott Menville) – Wendy's friends. The two of them are usually seen together. Lee has blond hair and wears a red shirt, while Nate wears a cap and a black shirt. They both act like stereotypical, sarcastic, care-free teenagers. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1", they are among the citizens of Gravity Falls who are captured and petrified by Bill's minions. They are both restored to being human at the end of the series.
- Xyler and Craz (voiced by John Roberts and Greg Cipes) – The main characters of Mabel's favorite movie, a s cult comedy called Dream Boy High. They come to life numerous times during the show, most notably accompanying the group in "Dreamscapers" and serving as her associates in "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape from Reality".
- Thompson (voiced by Mike Rianda) – Thompson is one of Wendy's friends, and a constant source of ridicule and embarrassment by them. He is usually seen participating in the games the guys play, such as putting ice in his pants and trying to shoot a jelly bean into his navel. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1", he is among the citizens who are captured and petrified by Bill's minions. He is restored to being human at the end of the series.
- "Lazy" Susan Wentworth (voiced by Jennifer Coolidge) – The sluggish waitress at the local restaurant Greasy's Diner. She is shown to love fixing things, despite not being at all skilled. Her name is a pun on her lazy eye, as well as a kitchen device she was trying to fix. She has several cats, three of which are named Donald, Sandy, and Mr. Cat-Face. Grunkle Stan had a crush on her, and eventually works up the nerve to win her over with Mabel's help but regrets it after she calls him repeatedly leaving unusual voice messages. She is shown to be scatterbrained in the episode "Summerween", when she categorically fails to guess what costumes Soos, Mabel, and Mabel's friends wear. As revealed in "A Tale of Two Stans", her constantly closed eye was caused by her accidentally touching one of Ford's inventions on the first Mystery Shack tour. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1", she is among the citizens who are captured and petrified by Bill's minions. She is restored to being human at the end of the series.
- Tobias "Toby" Determined (voiced by Gregg Turkington) – A journalist for the Gravity Falls Gossiper, of which he is apparently the only employee. He is a hard-hitting yet wimpy journalist, shown to be terrible at his job an example is that in one episode, he tried to use a turkey baster as a microphone and a cinder block as a camera. He has an unrequited crush on local TV news reporter Shandra Jimenez which goes to such an extent that he has a cardboard-cutout of her in his closet and flirts with it when alone, as shown in the episode "Headhunters". A running gag is that he is often mistaken for a monster due to his hideous face, with Wendy even shooting him with an arrow under this assumption in "Weirdmageddon Part 1". He finally gets to work with Shandra Jimenez after Weirdmageddon concludes, and after he wears punk clothes and adopts the name "Bodacious T". His name is a pun on "to be determined", said when information in a news story is currently unavailable. Toby is also a member of the Society of the Blind Eye.
- Sir Lord Quentin Trembley III Esquire (voiced by Alex Hirsch) – The 8th and a half President of the United States who never finished his term after eating a salamander and jumping out of a window. After winning the election in a literal landslide, he quickly became known for being the silliest president in the United States where he waged war on pancakes, legalized marriage with woodpeckers, appointed six babies to the Supreme Court, issued the de-pantsipation proclamation, and declared in his State of the Union address, "The only thing we have to fear is gigantic, man-eating spiders!" Quentin is the true founder of Gravity Falls, but was replaced by local nobody Nathaniel Northwest (Pacifica's ancestor) as Quentin was seen as an embarrassment. He was found preserved in peanut brittle by the twins on their way to Washington D.C. after being captured by Blubs and Durland. After being freed by the twins, he gave Dipper his President's Key (which can open any lock in America made before ) and made Mabel a US congresswoman.
- Blendin Blenjamin Blandin (voiced by Justin Roiland) – Blendin Blenjamin Blandin is a time traveler from the year ̃ (pronounced twenty-sñeventy-twelve) who was sent back in time to Gravity Falls to remove a set of time anomalies that Mabel and Dipper assume they started. He makes a full appearance in 'Time Traveler's Pig', but has made cameo appearances in episodes 1, 2, 3, and 20, cleaning up the time anomalies. A board on the closed-up shack on Glass Shard Beach that Stanley and Stanford went into has "Blendin was here" scribbled onto it. In the episode "Blendin's Game" he competes with the twins in a game called "Globnar" in order to get revenge on the twins for getting him arrested, by way of a "time wish", allowing one paradox-free wish to the holder, but he loses the final game of laser tag. It is suggested that he will no longer be a villain after the episode "Blendin's Game" when Dipper and Mabel actually helped him get his job back and gave him pretty hair. In "Dipper and Mabel vs. the Future" he is possessed by Bill Cipher so that he can release the dimensional rift. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1", upon realizing his possession, Blendin goes to gain help from his fellow time travelers only for Bill to kill all of them and for Blendin to escape to an unknown place as the sole survivor. However, in "Journal 3", Blendin isn't the only survivor of Weirdmageddon. He confirms that Lolph and Dundgren send out holograms in such dangerous missions.
- The Time Baby (voiced by Dave Wittenberg) – An all-powerful infant with ultimate control over time and space. He is also the ruler of the future as of the year ̃ and game master for the game tournament "Globnar". His origins are mostly unknown, but it is known that he was found frozen in an iceberg, which eventually melted and set him free on the future world. The Time Baby possesses powers such as laser vision, flight, omniscience, and time manipulation. He appears to have some connection to Bill Cipher as evidenced by clues hidden throughout the series as well as the Bill Cipher Reddit AMA.
- Daniel "Manly Dan" Corduroy (voiced by John DiMaggio) – The strong lumberjack and father of Wendy and three sons. Manly Dan is unstable and has serious anger issues, often punching or destroying objects when angry, but enjoys family bonding activities such as fishing on the lake. Manly Dan hangs out at Skull Fracture, a local biker joint in downtown Gravity Falls. He is also good friends with Tyler Cutebiker. In "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape from Reality", he is among the citizens who are captured and petrified by Bill's minions. He is restored to being human at the end of the series.
- Tyler Cutebiker (voiced by Will Forte) – A slim, well-groomed biker. He appears to be rather childlike and effeminate, and he is well known for showing up in crowd scenes saying his catchphrase, "Get 'em! Get 'em!". He describes himself as an "enthusiasm enthusiast". He tends to be indecisive and frequently visits the Mystery Shack. In "The Stanchurian Candidate", he is elected mayor of Gravity Falls due to being the only candidate to fill in his paperwork. In the series finale, he is among the citizens of Gravity Falls to be petrified by Bill's minions. Along with the other citizens with this fate, Tyler is used to build a throne for Bill, but with Tyler being the load bearing victim, Dipper and Mabel remove him and restoring the humanity of Bill’s victims. At the end of the series, he passs the "Never Mind All That" Act, telling the townspeople that all questions about Weirdmaggedon should be answered: "Never mind all that!".
- Corduroy Boys – The three sons of Manly Dan and the younger brothers of Wendy. The three are often seen with their father, destroying things. In May , it was confirmed on Twitter that their names from oldest to youngest are Marcus, Kevin, and Gus.
- Free Pizza Guy – The Free Pizza Guy is a background character in Gravity Falls. He is usually seen eating pizza and is disappointed when Stan breaks his promise of free pizza in the episode "Headhunters". He is most recognizable by his red 'free pizza' shirt. He's also known to Dipper and Mabel as "That Fat Guy".
- Tate McGucket (voiced by Alex Hirsch) – Tate McGucket is a stoic worker at Lake Gravity Falls and is the son of Old Man McGucket, with whom he has a troubled relationship. His eyes are always hidden under his hat.
- Mr. Poolcheck (voiced by Mike Rianda) – Mr. Poolcheck is the head lifeguard at the Gravity Falls Pool, although he acts like a stereotypical military drill instructor. Appearing in the episodes "The Deep End" and briefly in "Bottomless Pit" and "Scary-oke" he is Wendy's boss at the Gravity Falls Pool and later agrees to hire Dipper. At first he takes a liking to Dipper, but comes to realize both Wendy and Dipper do not take the job of lifeguard seriously enough. He fires them both near the conclusion of the episode.
- Melody (voiced by Jillian Bell) – Soos' long-distance girlfriend from Portland, Oregon, who works at a "Meat Cute" food stand when in town. In the series finale, she begins working as the Mystery Shack's new cashier after Stan promotes Soos to manager.
- Mrs. Gleeful (voiced by Grey DeLisle) – Mrs. Gleeful is the mother of L'il Gideon Gleeful and wife of Bud Gleeful. Life with Gideon seems to have reduced her to a traumatized, nervous wreck who can do little more than vacuum compulsively while muttering frantically under her breath.
- Pacifica's friends (the magenta-haired one voiced by Ariel Hirsch) – They are the unnamed cronies of Pacifica Northwest who are usually seen following their dominant counterpart around and obliging to her every whim. One of them is named Tiffany.
- Reginald and Rosanna (voiced by Will Friedle and Grey DeLisle) – Reginald and Rosanna are a proposed couple who are commonly seen background characters in the show. They appear to be currently going out, as they are often seen together.
- Shandra Jimenez (voiced by Kari Wahlgren) – Shandra Jimenez is a news reporter in Gravity Falls and Toby Determined's secret crush. It appears she takes her job seriously when she refers to herself as "a real reporter" (episode 3: Headhunters). She is the last of the citizens of Gravity Falls to be petrified by Bill's minions.
- Shmipper and Smabble – Shmipper and Smabble are two very young characters (one male and one female) who are sometimes used as complete opposites of Mabel and Dipper. They have a grandpa who shows his loving affection towards them, in contrast towards Grunkle Stan.
- Tad Strange (voiced by Cecil Baldwin) – A normal, well-adjusted man who acts as a foil for the town's strange and quirky residents.
- Mayor Eustace "Huckabone" Befufftlefumpter (voiced by Alex Hirsch) – The reclusive year-old mayor of Gravity Falls, introduced in "Northwest Mansion Mystery". He dies in "The Stanchurian Candidate" and is ultimately succeeded by Tyler, while his zombified corpse makes a cameo in the series finale.
- Lolph and Dundgren (voiced by Dave Wittenberg (Lolph) and Diedrich Bader (Dundgren)- Agents of the Time Paradox Avoidance Enforcement Squadron, also known as the Time Police. Their names (and possibly their tall and muscular appearance) are seemingly inspired by Dolph Lundgren. They are the agents who arrest Blendin Blandin and later apprehend Dipper and Mabel to compete against Blendin in Globnar. They are killed by Bill Cipher in the Weirdmageddon.
- Weirdmageddon Monsters – Interdimensional demons who are released in "Weirdmageddon" and unleash havoc upon Gravity Falls under Bill's command. They are sent back to their home dimensions after Bill's defeat in the series finale. They consist of the following:
- 8-Ball (voiced by Andy Merrill) – A green-skinned goblin/troll-like creature with a white chest and stomach, a muscular upper body, and magic 8-balls for eyes that are usually pointed in different directions. He also has large ears, a prominent underbite, large teeth, and cuffs around his right wrist and ankle with a small segment of broken chain dangling from them.
- Kryptos – A polygonal demon similar in design to Bill but rhombus (or square) in shape and gray in color.

He also has a big wide mouth with buck teeth and a small light blue aura, and wears black gloves and boots.
- Zanthar – A dark purple gorilla-like creature that has a light-purple patch and small trees growing out of his back and shoulders. He also wears a party hat.

- Amorphous Shape – A floating unfolded Rubik's Cube composed of many colorful contorted squares, several of which have eyes on them, with a small white aura. He has two long dark purple tail-like protrusions with larger blue tufts at the ends hanging off of the two purple colored squares on his body.
- Pyronica (voiced by Danielle Fishel) – A glowing pink one-eyed succubus-like slim-shaped humanoid with short pink hair with bangs parted across her face, several small horns located between her two big curved horns, and limbs made of white flames.

- Paci-Fire (voiced by Matt Chapman) – A demonic dark-gray baby with enormous black horns resembling bat ears, a pink bull-like nose, glowing red eyes, a black devil-like tail, and a red aura. He also has a red pacifier being sucked by a second face on his torso and a gold cross on his massive forehead with an eye similar to Bill's at its center. Of all the demons, Paci-Fire is the closest to traditional depictions of them.
- Lava Lamp Guy – A lava lamp-like demon with two red lava blobs shaped like eyes and red circles visible inside of his body. He also wears a black and red bowler hat.
- Eye bats – Living bat-sized eyeballs with the ears, wings, and legs of a bat. Aside from flight, their only known power is laser-eyebeams which petrify anyone caught in them.

- The Creature With Eighty-Eight Different Faces (voiced by Alex Hirsch) – A multi-colored being with many different kinds of faces. In "Weirdmageddon Part 2: Escape From Reality", Bill mentions it has eighty-seven different faces by accident, as the Creature gets defensive.
- Rumble McSkirmish (voiced by Brian Bloom) – A famous fighter of the video game "Fight Fighters". He appears in the episode "Fight Fighters", where he is summoned by Dipper to scare Robbie, who tries to kill as a cause of a confusion about the father of Dipper. He later fights with Dipper and wins, but he disappears after this and returns to his game. Later, he reappears in a cameo in "Soos and the Real Girl", where he appears in the arcade in his video game, but is zapped by Giffany. He later returns in "Weirdmageddon Part 1", where he is released again from his video game by Bill Cipher. Finally, he returns in "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls", where he helps the Pines family to combat the Weirdmageddon monsters. After Bill Cipher's demise, he disappears again and returns to his video game.
- Experiment #/The Shape Shifter (voiced by Mark Hamill) – A monstrous creature that seems to come from space. In Dipper and Mabel Vs the Future the strange writing in the space ship when decoded says “Specimen has escaped is changing forms”, the shapeshifter on the ship must have escaped and laid an egg on earth which Ford later found and raised. After his escape of his cryogenic chamber, he takes the form of a man that promoted canned beans. After he meets Wendy and Dipper, he steals the Journal 3 and tries to escape with them, but finally, he is locked again in his cryogenic chamber by Dipper, Wendy, Soos, and Mabel. Journal 3 reveals that Ford originally kept the Shapeshifter as a test subject for the cryogenic freezing device, but grew attached to it and kept it as a pet and even named it “Shifty”.

- Giffany, or ".GIFfany" (voiced by Jessica DiCicco) – A sentient, malicious A.I. in the guise of an innocent, pink-haired schoolgirl in a dating simulator game. She killed her creator after her "birth", after he realized that what he created was evil. She is the main character of the dating simulator, "Romance Academy 7", but her game was returned to the local video game store several times, presumably when people found out that she was dangerous. However, Soos bought her video game and falls for her. When Dipper and Mabel pull Soos from her game, she follows Soos to the mall via power lines. However, after Soos meets Melody, Giffany reveals her jealous controlling attitude, forcing Soos to pause her game. However, she snaps and begins stalking Soos, following him to the mall once again, and threatening to kill Melody. She gains control of the robotic bodies of the animatronics in Hoo-Ha Owl's Pizzamatronic Jamboree, where she tries to capture Soos and download his brain into her game, but Soos uses a pizza oven to destroy the disc, erasing Giffany's programming and killing her. However, Journal 3 reveals she survived and is trapped in the Fight Fighters arcade game and has entered a romantic relationship with Rumble McSkirmish. The character was partially inspired by Ben Drowned, and served as a primary inspiration for Monika.
- Celestabellebethabelle (voiced by Sam Marin) – a unicorn who lives in the Enchanted Forest. She made her first appearance in "The Last Mabelcorn".

He tried to kill Mabel, Dipper, Soos, Candy, and Grenda after Dipper took off him from the Mystery Shack. Later, in a store, he eats Soos, and was killed by Soos after he eats his heart. However, before the Trickster dies, Soos mentioned that he is delicious, for the happiness of the Trickster.

In the episode "Double Dipper," they were made by Dipper from a magical copy machine found inside the shack to assist him in his plan to dance with Wendy at the ongoing party. One of them was a paper jam. They all team up and try to lock Dipper in a closet after he ruins their plans to dance with Wendy but are eventually melted by water and Tyrone was melted by the soda. In "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls" during the end credits, 3 and 4 are the only clones to have survived. Journal 3 shows that 3 and 4, shortly after "Double Dipper", hid in Dipper's closet and made plans for both to replace him, but Dipper discovered them and unintentionally scared them off with an opened can of Pitt Cola.
- Jeffy Fresh, Byrone, and Rosie – A group of stereotypically rebellious teenagers from the 80s, who are responsible for the deaths of Ma and Pa Duskerton and the creation of the Summerween Trickster. Pinequest implies that they were killed by the Summerween Trickster, and their gravestones appear in the game.
- Ma and Pa Duskerton (voiced by Ken Jenkins, and April Winchell) – They were the elderly proprietors of the "Dusk 2 Dawn" before their simultaneous deaths by rap music thanks to the teens, after which point they became ghosts seeking vengeance on any teenagers who come into their store. Ma and Pa used their ghostly powers to close the store and give the teens ironic punishments, and the ghosts of Ma and Pa had possessed Mabel Pines. When Dipper concluded that the ghosts were haunting them for making things that teenagers usually do, Dipper declared that he wasn't a teen. Upon hearing Dipper's revelation, Ma and Pa let go Mabel's body and allowed Dipper to exit from the store. However, Dipper asked them if there was something he can do to release Wendy and her friends as they were also his friends. In turn, Pa asked Dipper if he can perform some little nice dancing, so Dipper was forced to dance the Lamby Lamby Dance in order to free his friends. Ma and Pa Duskerton thanked Dipper for his performance and released Wendy's friends before disappearing.
- Sev'ral Timez (voiced by Lance Bass, Matt Chapman, and Alex Hirsch) – A boy band that Mabel, Candy, and Grenda are obsessed with.

They escape with the help of Mabel and company, and are taken to her house to be safe. She eventually is shown that she is keeping them locked up, just like Bratsman, and she sets them free, and they scamper off into the woods, only returning in the second season. In the episode "Love God" they are shown behind a trashcan, and as ghosts of Mabel's past loves. In "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape From Reality", they are riding a scooter through Mabeland.

She lures him to a secluded place in Mystery Mountain, captures him and prepares to eat him alive. However, he is freed by Dipper, Mabel, Candy and Grenda. They enter a kiosk which takes them over the sky, and the villainous femme fatale chases them. There, Candy pulls a lever that sends the kiosk falling down from the sky, Darlene along with it. There, she is trapped underneath the boot of a giant statue. Darlene tries to seduce Grunkle Stan again by shifting into her human form, but when He gets up close She attempts to eat him. Darlene smugly states that she’ll never run out of prey because there will always be foolish men like him.

Neil deGrasse Tyson Voices a Pig In Disney's Gravity Falls: First Look
Neil deGrasse Tyson, the esteemed astrophysicist and host of Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, can now add voice actor to his resume after a recent stint voicing Waddles, a pig, in Disneys Gravity Falls.
The show follows brother-sister duo Dipper and Mabel Pines on their supernatural misadventures in the fictional town of Gravity Falls, Oregon; Waddles is Mabels pet pig.
Neil deGrasse Tyson becomes the voice of Waddles in the upcoming episode, Little Gift Shop of Horrors, when the pet pig accidentally eats a bowl of brain-enhancing jelly giving it the mental know-how to create a machine that allows it to talk.
On his experience of voicing a pig, Neil deGrasse Tyson had this to say: Im a fan of helping anything get smarter. Even if its a pig.
This episode of Gravity Falls premieres on Saturday, October 4 at 9pm during Disney Channels Monstober programming event.

You know him for his velveteen voice, his magnificent moon vest, his reboot of Carl Sagan’s classic show Cosmos, and his general unwillingness to put up with bad science in popular culture. But hot dang, have you noticed Neil deGrasse Tyson in cartoons?
Well. He has been in them—a few, in fact! And he has some words about that. Which shouldn’t surprise you about Tyson at this point because, I mean, let’s be real: If it’s something he can analyze, he probably has some words about it. Here are some of them, on voicing Waddles in Gravity Falls for an episode, how he ended up in Ice Age 5 (yes, there ARE five Ice Age movies), and why he calls bullshit on The Force Awakens.
The Dot and Line: You’ve been in a bunch of animated shows over the past few years, it seems like. How has that been? How did that kind of happen? Did you enjoy the process?
Neil deGrasse Tyson: I have a very soft spot for artists, especially my brother is an artists. Went to art museums as a kid often, still do. That’s an oil replica over my desk. If an artist reaches out and says, “I want to put some science into what I’m creating, will you help me?” I’m there for you.
D&L: It’s a no-brainer.
Tyson: It’s a no-brainer. I’m there. As long as it’s not too gratuitous, it’s got to be meaningful to the project. Otherwise, what are you doing? Generally, it is meaningful. Let’s take for example Ice Age. I get the call, “We have interest in you being a character in Ice Age 5.”
D&L: I can’t believe they’re up to five.
Tyson: I said, “Have there been four of these?” Then they chuckled. Ice Age 5, subtitle “Collision Course.”
D&L: Are they direct-to-video yet? They’ve got to be.
Tyson: Collision course. There’s an asteroid headed towards Earth and our nomadic ice age mammals want to do something about it and so they needed me, wanted me to infuse this character with intelligent science that could help the clan not go extinct. And I said, “Sure, I’m there for you.”
D&L: So, you got to contribute in some ways to what was written too because they—
Tyson: Oh yeah, I don’t agree to stuff unless I … They have to trust … Sorry, I didn’t say that right. I invite them to trust me that once I know where they’re coming from, I’m not gonna try … I’m good here. I can get in the mode and allow me to participate in the creativity of the role that I’m playing. It may be, for example that there’s a little bit of humor or insight that is of no cost to the script in terms of word length that you could put in and then people in the know will be in the know, and you just upped it a notch in the geekosphere, for example. I’ll give you a good example. Not that I was in Star Wars but in Star Wars 7, what was that one called? “The Something Something.”
D&L: It’s always “The Something Something.” It’s not The Last Jedi, it’s the one before that.
Tyson: The one before that.
D&L: The Force Awakens.
Tyson: In The Force Awakens, they upped the ante on the Death Star. Do you remember what the Death Star does?
D&L: Mostly blows things up.
Tyson: No, no. But do you remember, okay so in this—
D&L: Generates energy.
Tyson: Not in this case because they up the ante. Now, instead of generating energy, it gets its energy from a star.
D&L: That’s right.
Tyson: It goes and sucks the energy out of a star until the star doesn’t exist anymore and now the energy is contained inside this vessel. Now, it can destroy six planets at once, like an entire solar system. Okay, like what? Let’s hold aside the fact that if you suck in all the energy from that glowing star, then you will become that star. Let’s hold that aside. There’s some special cavity, let’s assume. No one did the math on this. If you could suck the energy out of a star and then destroy planets with it, you could destroy a thousand planets with the star, a thousand. It’s a way more deadly device than they had presumed. They’re thinking well, six is more than one.
D&L: Let’s up the ante without really knowing how much it would.
Tyson: If I were in the room at that time, I could have enhanced the killing power with this suggestion.
D&L: Right, which may have been too much for the film’s narrative to sustain.
Tyson: Maybe they would have recast it.
D&L: Right, right, right. That actually makes me think of another, wouldn’t you have to have an enormous amount of energy to take that energy from the star in the first place?
Tyson: No, you can conduct it out. For example, you don’t need energy for your fireplace poker to get hot when one end is in the fire and the other end is touching your hand. The energy just works its way up the fireplace iron.
D&L: Right, interesting. This makes me think of the episode of Gravity Falls that you were in.
Tyson: That’s one, so the pig gets smart. How could I say no to that?
“I felt unloved because everybody else has been on ‘The Simpsons.’”
D&L: But the pig gets smart not through science, but through some mystical mumbo jumbo.
D&L: But it’s okay as long as you have the science afterward to work through that.
Tyson: As long as what the pig says is legitimate, and it was. The pig made an atom smasher. If the pig just uttered mumbo jumbo, what’s the point of eating the goop? The goop made the pig smart, so let’s make that accurate. Yeah, I was fine. I didn’t care how he got there. You can’t tell me that a pig became smart by any legitimate means, there is no legitimate means, so let it be the green goop.
D&L: The pigs are as smart as they’re going to be, they’re not getting any smarter.
Tyson: Also, I was in Family Guy a couple of times.
D&L: That’s right.
D&L: Have you been on The Simpsons? You must have been.
Tyson: Only recently.
D&L: Ah, well. They have had a long…
Tyson: I felt unloved because everybody else has been on The Simpsons.
D&L: Even Thomas Pynchon was on The Simpsons, and he’s not on anything. They didn’t have him there.
Tyson: Okay, the horse.
D&L: They found somebody else to pretend to be him and put a paper bag over his head because no one has seen him since, like, , so no one knows what he looks like.
Tyson: Oh wow, that’s funny.
D&L: Even the famous recluses have been on it.
Tyson: This is what they gave me, The Simpson stuff, out on the shelf. [Motions toward shelf.] On the right hand, you probably can’t see it, it’s just to the right.
D&L: Oh, the dog.
Tyson: Yeah, they dog and the thing. That was The Simpsons gift bag.
D&L: Oh, God. Swag, these businesses they really know how to flood your office.
Tyson: There’s The Simpsons. Also, I was on …
D&L: There was a new Disney show you were on, right?
Tyson: Oh yeah, I was on Future Worm.
D&L: Yup, that’s it. It’s a great name.
Tyson: Yeah, Future Worm.
D&L:Regular Show too, right?
Tyson: No, I was invited to go on, wait what’s the Regular Show?
D&L: It’s the one, it’s not Adventure Time, but it is a Cartoon Network thing that looks like it.
Tyson: I was on the Regular Show eating a bowl of pasta.
D&L: Doesn’t sound like a too unpleasant thing to do.
Tyson: Yeah, but they wanted me to just play and have fun with the food the way a scientifically literate kid would play with his food in that way. I’m there.
D&L: Especially getting kids interested in scientific facts.
Tyson: Actually, I do it because it’s the right thing to do, but my real focus is on adults because they run stuff.
D&L: Yeah, they do.
Tyson: And they’re in charge and they wield resources, and they levy taxes, and they vote. The absence of science literacy has its greatest cost not in scientifically illiterate children but in scientifically illiterate adults. Then if you have science literate adults, then science literate children immediately follows because they will make sure that the curriculum in school systems, and school boards are all there.
D&L: Right. There’s no chicken and egg question here. The adults can effect the change. The kids may grow up into adult and effect the change.
Tyson: But I’m too impatient to wait 30 years for that.
