Another Creative, Funny Episode
16 June 2015 | by See all my reviews

After a successful debut in "Tourist Trapped," Gravity Falls is plugging right along with its second episode, "The Legend of the Gobblewonker." In this episode, Dipper and Mabel journey with Soos to seek out a mythical water monster that lurks in the lake. Meanwhile, Gruncle Stan, who brought them out to the lake to have some bonding time, feels left out and tries to make new "fishing buddies" with the other Gravity Falls citizens out on the lake, often with hilariously disastrous consequences. Some excellent examples of the show's humor is incorporated into this episode ("Who wants to put on some blindfolds and get into my car?"/"Yay! Wait, what?") and some of the minor characters, like Old Man McGucket, Manly Dan, and Tyler are introduced. This episode was, like its predecessor, an overall balanced episode that combines some warmer family moments with the trademark mystery and both child- and adult-oriented humor, while remaining viewable by audiences of all ages, and, like "Tourist Trapped," throws in one final mystery to intrigue the audience. Continuing the winning streak, "The Legend of the Gobblewonker" is another great episode in the series.
