Gravity Falls x Paul Robertson
Alex Hirsch's Gravity Falls premiered in June, drawing inspiration from classic paranormal/occult themed shows like the X-Files and Twin Peaks, yet for a broader audience. A recent snippet from the show absolutely amazed me, featuring a humorous Neo-Geo/Street Fighter-esque pixel protagonist wreaking havoc on the titular town (Bowl Of Punch!). And that pixel protagonist was created as a collab between Disney and Paul Robertson, the amazing Aussie sprite artist behind absolute gems like Pirate Baby Cabana Battle.
I thought the show was going to be solid based on the previews we received, but the usage of this type of humor just placed it into a 'must watch' category with it's fun attempts to appeal to a broader audience. Check out another clip from the episode after the break!
