  • The film about Quentin Trembley states he was elected in 1837 as the 8½th President of the United States, but there were elections in 1836, that in it Martin Van Buren was elected eighth President, and in 1840, Trembley's alleged replacement William Henry Harrison (who had lost in 1836) defeated Van Buren's bid for re-election and became the ninth President of the United States.
  • According to Alex Hirsch on a Reddit AMA, the whole series takes place over the course of one summer.[6]
  • Blendin Blandin comes from the year 207̃012. However, this contradicts the idea that the end of the world will occur in 3012 (according to the Mailbox). This discrepancy might be explained by the fact that the animated shorts (in which the Mailbox is depicted) may not be canonical, or that the time baby has rebuilt the world since 3012.

  5. Erik Adams; Hirsch, Alex (July 31, 2014). Gravity Falls’ Alex Hirsch previews the show’s new season by recapping its first (Interview). “The kids are 12, going on 13, and 13 is when you're technically a teen. Their birthday coincides with the end of the summer—I don't think that's been mentioned in the series yet—but this is the last summer of childhood.”
