Have you seen Gravity Falls?
It is animated and it is Disney, but this cartoon featuring a pair of 12 year old twins is not just a children’s show. Kids will enjoy it, of course, but the stories and the humor are great for adult men and women, as well!
Disney has really done a fantastic job with this show. It somehow manages to feel fresh and unique instead of like ‘just another animated cartoon.” The characters, situations and dialogue are quirky and imaginative. The mysterious, peculiar and sometimes spooky stories are full of fun. This is a DVD that I can watch and enjoy whether or not there are children present.
