Sex & Nudity

A man points to a statue of sasquatch in underwear, and calls it "Sas-crotch" in "Tourist Trapped"

In one episode, Mabel states that "Dipper kisses pillows with Wendy's face drawn on at night" as well his laying awake thinking about her.

In "Dipper Vs. Manliness" a minotaur says he has "fists" for nipples. In the same episode, near the end Dipper is only covered up by a cloth near his groin and behind.

In "Deep End", Mabel shares her first kiss with a Merman, pretty innocent. Yet, before her, Dipper needs to give him first help aka "mouth-to-mouth". Later, Mabel says "He was my first kiss - And yours too!" which Dipper fast replies, "Please don't involve me in this!"

In "Carpet Diem", Mabel is in Dipper's body and is looking through a keyhole in a door. Stan finds her and says "Got to that creepy age where you start spying on girls? Time to have a man-to-man talk about the birds and the bees." Stan gets a book called "Why am I Sweaty?" and tells Mabel in Dipper's Body about the pituitary gland and how it has "big plans", and the scene cuts away. Later, we see Stan saying "and that's were babies come from" and Mable in Dippers Body is disgusted.

In this same episode, Grenda reads her mom's "age-inappropriate" romance novels. One has a picture of a wolf-man with a bare chest, to which Mabel goes "Oooh!"

In "Into The Bunker", Dipper, Mabel, Soos, and Wendy enter a room filled with strange symbols Soos says that the room looks creepy. Mabel then says that it's not as creepy as Dipper's internet history.

Also in "Into The Bunker", Dipper lies down on Wendy's bed. Wendy tells Dipper that he is lying on her bra, and Dipper screams.

In "Sock Opera" a boy kisses his sock puppets.

In "Gideon Rises", a gnome is naked in a bath with squirrels running all around him but you cannot see anything. Also, squirrels are later seen jumping into his pants before he runs away with them.

Throughout the whole show, there is a lot of talking about puberty, mostly connected with Dipper's "cracking voice", and pointing out that it's the reason Dipper is all sweaty and awkward.

In "The Love God", there are many scenes where the title character uses magic to make people fall in love and make out.

Words like "lewd" and "prude" are also briefly mentioned.

Violence & Gore

Some pages of the Journals are possibly blood splattered, particularly the ones with Bill Cipher.

A gnome latches on to Dipper's face, and Mabel punches it several times to get it off, inadvertently hurting Dipper in the process. His eyes become purple and is visibly dazed.

In the episode "Headhunters", a wax figure modeled after Stan is decapitated. Various other wax figures are dismembered or decapitated in the episode.

In the episode "Summerween", a monster eats a little kid, and later eats Soos.. Some children attack a monster with swords, sickles and axes. The kid who was eaten before comes out alive. The monster reveals he is made of candy, and then Soos bursts out of its chest and eats its heart, played for laughs, but can still be unsettling.

Otherwise, Stan tries to scare some kids by taking what appears to be sausages out of his stomach (shirt) surrounded by ketchup, intended to look like intestines.

During the climax scene in "Gideon Rises", after Dipper is thrown out of Gideon's machine, we see a small amount of blood coming out from his nose. Also in this episode, Gideon and Dipper fight by punching and slapping.

In "Scary-oke", Soos gets bitten by the zombies and a wound is seen on his shoulder. Stan and the twins kill some of the zombies, rather graphically. They are dismembered, crushed, beaten, and even cut in half, albeit with green blood. Later on, their heads explode, splashing more green blood.

In "Into the Bunker", there is some fighting with Wendy and the Morph Monster and she receives an injury on her leg. The monster impersonates Wendy, and Dipper thrusts an axe into its abdomen, giving the appearance of Wendy with an axe stuck in her, though with green blood.

At the ending of "Society of the Blind Eye," a metal bar hits Stan's hand and a large bloody wound appears. He puts a bandage on and the blood can be seen soaking through it.

In "Northwest Mansion Noir", there is a scene where animal heads on walls start chanting "ancient sins" and then have blood ooze out of their eyes and mouth.

In the same episode, in a flashback, we see the ghost, when he was alive, gets stuck in a mudslide and his axe hits him leading to his death. We don't see the actual impact, however we do see his ghost with an axe stuck in his head.

In an episode with Bill Cipher, Bill gives Dipper "a head that's always screaming." The screaming head disappears after its skin and muscles peel off revealing its skull.

In "Sock Opera," Bill possesses Dipper's body and proceeds to hurt himself by throwing himself down the stairs and repeatedly slamming his arm in a drawer. When he takes his arm out of the drawer, there are forks sticking out of it.


The strongest is "heck".

Mabel uses juvenile insults ("poop head", etc,)

In The Love God, Stan says "What the H?" before a letter H falls on him.

In "Not What He Seems," he says "Son of a-" but is cut off by Dipper and Mabel.

Some teens spray paint the work "McSuckitt" on McGuckett's home in "Society of the Blind Eye".

The wax figure of Sherlock Holmes has a pipe in his mouth.

In the Inconvenience episode, Mabel discovers a smile dip (referencing a fun-dip) in the convenience store which that candy contains hallucinogenic drugs and Mabel eats too much causing her to hallucinate.

The show can occasionally be strong for little kids. The theme of the show is mystery. The producers created real mysteries, which the viewers must discover.

Every episode of the show has a secret code, the opening, when played backwards gives instructions of how to decode it.

In "Scary-oke", much of the episode deals with fighting zombies that come out of trenches in the ground, and the zombies actually appear quite scary.

In "Into the Bunker", there is a man Dipper and Wendy meet which turns out to be a scary morph monster.

In "Northwest Mansion Noir", there is a creepy scene where Dipper and Mabel enter a room and we see real blood dripping from the displayed animal heads in the room. The first appearance of graphic blood in the show used for shock.

In the same episode, the ghost that is haunting the Northwest mansion turns the Gravity Falls residents into wood. It is not played for laughs and it can be unsettling.

Finally, in a flashback, we see the ghost, when he was alive, getting drifted away through a mudslide and his axe hits him leading to his death and it can be unsettling for some viewers (although we don't see him get hit directly).

Some viewers may be unsettled by the character Bill Cipher, who can be a creepy character. His voice often gets suddenly deeper as he turns red with a bloodshot eye. Some of the things he says may be frightening to some viewers (like "Time is an illusion; the universe is a hologram) ("One day when everything will change") (I'll be watching you").

The shapeshifter morphs into a grotesque version of both Dipper and Mabel which can be frightening for some viewers.
