As much as I actually like this show so far, they gotta do better than some cheapo references to something that still happens to be popular. Otherwise, the show doing this ref is at risk of aging badly, honestly. I don't want to see that happen to this show - it is unfortunately setting itself to do that, however.
‘Gravity Falls’ Creator Alex Hirsch Brings Back the Mystery Shack, Sort of, via Disney Channel’s ‘Amphibia’ (Exclusive)It’s not quite the “Gravity Falls” reboot/reunion that fans are hoping for, but it’s close: Creator Alex Hirsch will guest star on a Season 2 episode of Disney Channel’…variety.com
The episode "Wax Museum" , which airs August 8, is the episode where Alex Hirsch guest stars. He's voicing expies of Stan and Soos (The Curator and Frog Soos).
To be fair, on the plus side (thanks for keeping me honest here, BTW.): if it is just this one episode and the rest of the series works to continue to be more than some couple of references, then yeah, we should be fine. I can actually agree with that much, sir/ma'am.I don't really see the show aging poorly. I'm pretty sure this is just meant to be a one off tribute given Matt Braly's work there (or I guess maybe twofold given how Kristen Schaal also has a guest appearance this season). Either way, I don't really think they'll go overboard with something like this.
I'm glad I'm not the only one who feels this way. I was the biggest GF megafan back in the day (and still love the show), but sometimes, you should let a dead horse rest. There's not really a good reason for this reference other than Matt Braly worked on Gravity Falls. Plus, I have a feeling The Owl House will do something Gravity Falls-related in the future, and that would really be overkill. I hope I'm proven wrong when the episode airs.As much as I actually like this show so far, they gotta do better than some cheapo references to something that still happens to be popular.
