Worst Gravity Falls Episodes

The Top Ten

1 Boyz Crazy

This episode was just incredibly dull in my opinion. The main plot with Mabel and the boy band was so completely unnecessary. It doesn't establish anything new about Mabel, and the clones were so annoying I couldn't wait for Mabel to get rid of them. I did, however, like the subplot involving Dipper and Stan, seeing the two of them bonding was really cute. But the stuff with Robbie and Wendy was kind of confusing. Am I the only one who thought Wendy was really out of character in this episode? She's usually so chill but in this episode she just snaps at Robbie for lying to her and then yells at Dipper too. Overall, it was one of the weakest episodes of the season.

I love Gravity Falls, but honestly this episode... Was not my favorite, the humor struck me a stupid, the plot seemed pointless.

Good episode, but bad response of Mabel. I can't believe it. This is the first episode that showed the meanest side of Mabel. Seriously! I learned Mabel kills anybody who doesn't like Several Times. But I thought the boy band was pretty funny. Anyway, this episode gets an 8 on a scale of 1 to 10.

Adopting boy bands? So weird its funny. kinda.

2 Dipper vs. Manliness

LADIES LADIES! You can't put a worst episode on gravity falls! That's like saying that they should cancel the show! Curse whoever made this list!

Just because there is a list of worst episodes doesn't mean we want the show to end. It is just saying we don't like these episodes as much. If the creators of the show even saw this list, they should take it as advice. - RalphBob

While Little Gift Shop of Horrors is my least favorite episode, this one held the previous record. This episode didn't even really have to exist. Like Little Gift Shop of Horrors, it wasn't bad. Just doesn't show was Gravity Falls is all about. Dipper is all out of character in this episode. To me, I have always seen him as someone like me who always has known he's a nerd (except I'm a she) and proud of it. The nice quality of him is completely thrown out in this episode. Even if you're a hardcore Faller like me, you really don't need to watch this episode.

The characters seem so flat in this episode it would have been better if it came later in the season since we barely knew dipper besides his mystery solving antics I guess the writers were trying let the audience get to know dipper a bit when Mabel would get more character development in irrational treasure

I HATE THIS EPISODE!

3 Roadside Attractions

Okay... what? Honestly I didn't have very high hopes for this episode to begin with. I get that we needed a detour before the chaos that is Weirdmageddon... but this? This episode... I wouldn't call it "horrible" (I personally don't think that there's such a thing as a bad episode of Gravity Falls), but I wouldn't call it "good". I wouldn't even call it "decent". This episode... happened. That's really all I can think to describe it as. First of all, the monster in this episode. It's... a concept? A Vegas Spider Siren? Sounds pretty cool on paper, but I feel that it was one of the least interesting creatures in the show. The biggest problem with this episode is that it falls into a trap that I've seen all too many times, and that's trying way too hard to enforce a moral. Everything, EVERYTHING that enforces morals, be it cartoons, live action comedies, comics, anything, they all fall into this trap, and Gravity Falls is no exception. Did Dipper need to learn this moral? No, especially ...more

Mabel and her friends are a couple of insufferable brats. It's no wonder they get along so well. Grenda was being annoying as always. I thought Candy was boring until she turned out to be a brat like Mabel. She has a crush on Dipper all because he gave her a compliment and then rejected him because he ran away from a scary monster. And Mabel was probably at her worst in this episode. She goes behind Dipper's back and takes his secret box of Wendy photos, gets mad at him for not being over her(and that was after she locked them in the closet and nearly got them killed in "Into the Bunker"), tells him to "move on"(you'd think a self-proclaimed "dating expert" would have better advice than that.), forces Candy onto him without telling him, gets mad at him again for being a "betrayer." If Dipper had a spine, he would've called Mabel out for all the times she flirted with guys. Just goes to show what a horrible sister she is. Hate this episode.

Every single episode of gravity falls I LOVE. I love the show, and all the amazing characters! Every episode is amazing.

...Except this one. Geez, when I first saw this list, I didn't want to vote because gravity falls is always great and smart...and then I saw Roadside Attraction. This episode is TERRIBLE TO THE CORE. Sub-par comedy, cringe-worthy dialogue, and The entire episode just felt mean-spirited. I mean yeah, the idea of The gang going around and pranking other tourist traps is a great idea, same with Dipper attempting to find new love with the help of the least helpful person possible, and his advice surprisingly working. But Nothing is brought to it's fullest, and I suspect the main reason this episode was made was for Alex Hirsch to notify fans "Nope. CanDip's not happening". That is why I hate this episode with all my heart.

UUUH this episode is so bad it gives my favorite cartoon of all time and makes it seem like a Chinese knockoff

4 The Hand That Rocks the Mabel

Why the heck is this episode on this list!?!?! It's one of the best ones! This one is my third favorite episode!

Honestly, Gideon seemed like sort of a lame villain up until the last few episodes. Most of his less important cameos (Deep End, Irrational Treasure) are typically better than episodes centered around him. Although, the finale was indeed great because Gideon seemed legitimately threatening.

Despite being a major Faller, I think Gideon is an underwhelming villain in general, but it really stands out in this episode. He just seems like weird 9-year-old. Also, this episode came way too early in the season. We learn who has the 2nd journal before we even find out Dipper likes Wendy. This episode isn't the worst, but it could've been better.

This wasn't that bad of an episode. It was actually pretty good, plus it introduced gideon, who isn't that bad

5 Scary-Oke

How could you hate this episode? I found it really entertaining for some strange reason. It was kind of just classic Gravity Falls style, I guess. I definitely don't think it's anywhere near the worst.

Unbelievable. Ok, perhaps the three-part-harmony thing was just a tiny bit contrived, but we still got an adorable song sequence out of it. Plus, the story arc with the government agents was introduced in this episode, in which they play a key role in NWHS. Also, the way Stan battled those zombies was amazing! This was a great episode in my opinion and I honestly don't get why it's disliked so much.

Really underwhelming. Seriously, we waited a year for this? The only thing that was "important" is that there was invisible ink. The zombies were really cliche and why did Dipper trust the government of all people? - TheLivingNarwhal

Well, in my opinion, that was the fun of it. Not all episodes can be a masterpiece, and I LOVED the episode :3 - TheAlbinoWolf

How dare you.. This is my favourite episode for its great start to season two and because it's so God damn good

6 Sock Opera

I have mixed feelings about Sock Opera, really. I was expecting it to be amazing, don't ask why, but I was, and I was honestly disappointed. I like how it has Bill in it because he's a great villain and very interesting, but I don't think that "Bipper" stabbing himself with forks and all of that self harm crap was very good to put in the show. I think they should've left it at the falling down the stairs. Also, when Dipper gets back in his body, he says he feels like he needs to go to the hospital. Yeah, yeah, Bill's a villain, I know, but did they really have to include that? Also, Mabel was a big jerk in this episode. At least she owned up to it, unlike in some other episodes... (ahem, Time Traveler's Pig.) They should have focused less on Mabel and Gabe and more on Bill and Dipper! Honestly, I feel like Dipper's deal with Bill was the main point of the episode, so why did Mabel obsessing over Gabe get so much screen time instead? That was my thoughts on Sock Opera.

Best episode so far

This is bad. Just because it has bill does not mean it is the best episode so far

What? How did this even happen? This is my personal favorite. Just... What?

I didn't like how Mabel called Dipper a "dumb guy" when she was being pretty dumb herself. After she realized how much Dipper does for her, she goes back to treating him like crap. She didn't even think of taking him to hospital like he said. Mabel really doesn't deserve a brother like Dipper.

7 Headhunters

Stan was fond of his wax figure because it reminded him of Ford. Rethink about your opinions.

Why would you call the police about a wax figure getting decapitated? And why would you go on an entire mystery case about who did it? Not to mention, the wax figure villains were kinda lame. - DCfnaf

I thought this one was okay...not so great. Not so bad

Good, but forgettable

8 Little Gift Shop of Horrors

For some reason, I had really high expectations for this one. The plot seemed cool and they were mixing two kinds of animation! I was really excited for this episode also because it was the first episode I was gonna see the premiere of for season 2. With excitement came disappointment, when the stories weren't even close to the awesomeness I expected. The potty humor was annoying and the other humor in general just wasn't very funny. In the end, it just seemed like Alex needed a Halloween episode and so he made it. As for the animation mix, it was entertaining and really good, but the other parts of the episode were so bad that that doesn't even give it any real credit. It wasn't a bad episode, but it definitely deserves the #1 spot on this list.

The whole episode sucked, but the story with Mabel and Waddles was the worst of all of them. Mabel gets upset because Waddles becomes a genius and he's spending more time with Dipper(who doesn't have a friend as smart as he is, mind you). With enough whining, Mabel manages to convince Waddles to change back to normal and it's ridiculous because she keeps making Dipper give up stuff for her and now her own pet pig is doing the same. It's supposed to be a non-canon story, but it still seemed canon. It also explains why she threw a fit over Dipper's apprenticeship. Why is it so hard for her to be happy for her friends and family instead of being a selfish, whiny little brat?

Little Gift Shop of Horrors was one of my least favorite episodes, I love Gravity Falls very much but this episode just, didn't scream Gravity Falls for me. It was boring. The plot for the hand-witch story was just down right dumb! A witch steals people's hands to get a date. The Waddles one was kinda interesting but it just felt like there was something, missing. The stop motion animation (clay motion) one was my favorite and I now only watch that part because of how interesting it is.

This episode is, together with love god, the only episode I didn't enjoy. I have the idea that these episodes containing multiple skits are usually the ideas that are not long enough to make a whole episode out of. So they mix it together with two other episodes and make an easy story around it. While bottomless pit succeeded in having funny and clever stories. This episode was just boring. The first story with the hand witch was weird and uncomfortable, not in a good way. And where I liked the concept of waddles becoming smart, it was hard to watch him leave Mabel. The third one was creative and probably hard to make with the stop motion. But that seemed to be the only efford put in this episode. I did luke the ending though but I know Alex cando better than this

9 Little Dipper

Mabel is such a horrible sister to Dipper and this one of the episodes that proves it. First, she gets upset for losing at chess when she just played around with the pieces. Then, she starts teasing making fun of Dipper's height. It's also ridiculous how Soos could spot a millimeter difference without measuring the twins first. Just like in "Dipper Vs. Manliness", she didn't realize how her teasing hurt her brother and doesn't apologize. She claims that she made of fun of him because he's better at her in anything and rubs its in her face, which is a horrible excuse. Dipper never teased her about losing and Mabel's better at him in lots of things, like fighting, mini-golf, being funny, making friends, the list goes on. And even after Dipper mentioned Mabel's name-calling and short jokes, she still kept teasing him. I hate how the episode treated her bullying towards Dipper like a good thing.

Mabel is the worst in this episode. She claims that she teases Dipper about being shorter than her because Dipper is better at everything. Thing is though, Dipper only said stuff about him winning and not her losing. Mabel just points out one flaw about him and it's safe to say that she was a downright bully to Dipper in this episode and it's not ok. She's acting as if someone being better at you at stuff gives you a right to point out their flaws and-like I said before-bully them. I'll give this episode credit though for making me feel so bad for Dipper. Seriously messed with my emotions

By this point it's clear there's no truly bad episode of the show. However this episode features Mabel at her most hateable. Stan didn't bug me as much since he only did it once at the beginning of the episode. However Mabel not only does it throughout the episode, but we're supposed to think she's in the right for teasing her brother. And her excuse isn't all that great either since Dipper's teasing was playful and won by bragging rights. But Mabel's teasing just seems just flat out Malicious, and could be more offensive to some of the more height-challenged viewers who've had to deal with mean spirited teasing because of their height.

Why Mabel is be a jerk to Dipper? Her reason to be a jerk her brother because he beat her on everything. That not a good reason! If they show Dipper bragging about breat Mabel in everything to her it would make her more less of a jerk. Mabel breat Dipper in been born first because she is the older twin. Mabel is older by five minutes. I don't like that episode.

10 The Deep End

I thought it was cool how Dipper gave Mabel the thingy. (I forget what it's called.) And some of it was pretty funny. "Look! Wendy in a bikini! " "Really? At night? " That one still makes me laugh! But still, I felt like over all the episode, at the most, just started a really bad ship with no point to even leave the dock. - dipperpinesfangirl618

This episode has great humor and a nice lesson. I don't see the problem here,

Not very original or engaging and barely advanced Dipper and Wendy's relationship and Gideon was an ass in this one.

Eww "reverse CPR" and kissing. DISGUSTING!
No offense Gravity Falls you are my favorite show EVAH but I really don't like this episode that much. I don't really hate any of the episodes but if I could pick a worst episode it would be this one.
ALSO THANK YOU LORD NOBODY PUT DREAMSCAPERS ON THIS LIST WUV THAT EPISODE SO MUCH!

The Contenders

11 The Love God

This episode had it's perks (such as Dipper saying "everyone's touching everything" while crowd surfing) but I feel that in a way the moral was a tad destructive. Mabel already messed with Robbie and Tambry's love lives, but in the end she decides to not undo the love potion because they seem "happy". But isn't this, in a way, artificial happiness? Isn't it better be alone than to be fake?

I hate how the love God acts in this episode. It's so bad, it's irrelevant to the series, and really puts Mabel down on her matchmaking skills

The only amazing here was the "I EAT Kids" and I know I feel bad for Robbie so it's nice that probably they're happy now

Whaaat? Tambry and Robbie? You won't believe me when I say this, but Journal 3 stated that they're love is true, because love potion only lasts 3 hours, and they were making out for over 10. But I have to give them credit for the "I EA T KIDS" part.

What?! Why is this on here? This is a great episode, and an important one too

It's the first episode, give it a break!

Why is this episode on here? It is great!

Why are really good episodes on this list?!? Like, dipper vs manliness at num. 1, that was my 6th most satisfying episode to watch.Then later on the list we have the legend of the gobblewonker, a GREAT episode.Bottomless pitt? COME ON!? Pilot isn't even an episode. I can say a lot about the little gift shop of horrors. And the hand that rocks the Mable at num. 3? Who even puts these episodes on here.

13 The Time Traveler's Pig

The redeeming quality of the episode is definitely waddles

Why couldn't he just ask her to duck?!

Decent episode, but I hated the moral. Mabel was being an idiot. - Phenenas

Mabel acted like a toddler in this episode. if her parents saw the tantrum she threw where she kept banging her head on the pole, they would be embarrassed to have a daughter like her. no 12-year-old should act like that.

14 The Legend of the Gobblewonker

This is a great episode! Why is it here?

This episode is fantastic! It has so much clever humor and a hidden dark side that can't be understood without watching Tale of Two Stans first.

This one was my least favorite but no episode of gravity falls should be on here

This is in my top ten

15 The Golf War

This isn't the worst episode of Gravity Falls, but it could've been better. It just isn't really interesting.

Pointless? This episode begun the beginning of Pacifica's reformation! Without, Northwest Mansion Mystery would've made less sense!

This episode felt very pointless to me. The Lilliputians were annoying, and honestly, I didn't really care who won the golf match. We already saw these two compete in Double Dipper: this just felt like a rehash of old material.

I feel like this episode is just filler. It has nothing to do with anything - Heyo_Simba

This one I waited a long time to see, it was worth it! I loved this episode! By the way, please don't make a Worst list for Gravity Falls because this show doesn't deserve it! There isn't any bad things about girlfriend :)! - maddyparrot22

This was my favorite until Gideon rises. I would say they are all pretty great, and some amazing, and some spectacular. I didn't like hand that rocks Mabel, gobblewonker, Little Dipper, or boss Mabel as much as the others though.

This one is really creepy.

Great funny episode. Clever way to use Halloween.

17 Pilot

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure there is no episode called pilot.

And to think this was supposed to be what gravity falls was. Instead of high quality crisp animation, we almost got cheap flash animation and nerves (weakened) jokes

The UNAIRED pilot thou. Stan looked like a gorilla. Ugh nightmares.

I haven't seen it, but I'll take Alex Hirsch's word for it.

18 Bottomless Pit!

This is a much better filler episode than "Little Gift Shop of Horrors"

I just got bored

This is the only episode I do not like of Gravity Falls - toy

There's no meaning for this one.

19 Land Before Swine

This episode WAS really good but I feel like it left a lot of spaces open and didn't really explain anything. Personally, this episode was really REALLY good and I liked it very much, but at the end, it made me a little disappointing. - dipperpinesfangirl618

Just like every episode this one is a great mix of comedy, mystery, and drama. But by default it's the worst. The characters go on a relatively cliché quest but don't add anything new to the mix. It made me laugh and smile but in the end it's just not as good as anything else.

I hate the way Stan just act totally diferent, and why was mcgucket eaven in thi episode?

20 The Last Mabelcorn

"The Dipper and Ford plot wasn't that interesting". What?!?! Are you serious? That was the best part of the episode, and it was far more interesting than Mabel's unicorn dilemma, which still was entertaining. But Dipper and Ford's plot made this a progressive episode, revealing an intense scene as well as a backstory about Ford's past with Bill. How's that NOT interesting?

Maybe it's just the MLP fan in me talking here but I hate what the writers did with Celestabellebethabelle. Her sole reason for being a jerk was... being a jerk. Come on. These writers have proven time and again that they are so much better than that. They've had other nasty and despicable characters like Preston Northwest, Gideon, Robbie, etc. but they all had reasons for their actions. This didn't justify what they did but it was a lot better than "I'm mean because I'm mean" which is what we got here. The writers are way more talented and, had they put more time into it, could have done more with Celestabellebethabelle's character. For me, the Dipper and Ford stuff was okay but not anything that I found too great. This episode is easily my least favorite since the antagonist really had no motivation and that just killed the plot for me. It wasn't an atrocious episode by any means but I find it to be the worst of the series.

Land Before Swine was good enough to be in Mr. Enter's Admirable Animations (video #23), so I don't know why anyone voted that one of Gravity Falls's worst episodes, but if any Gravity Falls episode deserves to be ranked the worst, it's this one. I could definitely imagine Mr. Enter having some bad things to say about this, mostly involving this episode addressing people's criticisms of Mabel and throwing them back in their faces, and the things Wendy, Candy and Grenda were doing to get Celestabellabethabelle's hair that might have made them less moral than her, which Wendy said Mabel didn't need to know about. Also, Ford admits he was a fool to hide his past with Bill, which he could have told Dipper about at any time, but he never did.

Why are Gravity Falls haters so stupid?

Yes because a rampaging gremloblin attacking the shack is boring.

This one is so boring

Just kind of meh. Hilarious, but meh.

23 Weirdmageddon 2: Escape From Reality

This is a good episode, though perhaps the weakest installment of the Weirdmageddon saga.

26 Irrational Treasure

This episode takes a stride from the supernatural and looks into the history of the town. Good plot and ending, and plenty of jokes to keep me laughing. This doesn't belong here.

Just kinda too comedic and not to relevant. But still good cause still has standars

The best episode EVER FROM GRAVITY FALLS! - Xoxo1

28 Dungeons, Dungeons, and More Dungeons

I love this episode so much. Ford became my favorite character after I first watched it actually. Yes, it was silly, but after such a serious story arc taking place in the past few episodes, it was nice to have a breather and get to know Ford a little better as a new character. (My favorite part is when Ford says "Princess Unattainabelle beckons you! ")

Doesn't belong here. Anything with Weird Al can't be too bad. Al was even good in Toddler Titans. - lavashooter

Um... Which Weirdmageddon? It's a trilogy. Unless the person who added it to the list meant all three, which would be ridiculous.

What THIS IS THE BEST ONE

This episode was just tasteless.So long.So slow.A failed attempt of copying the epicness of Regular Show¬'s Exit 9b.Zero character development aand Gideon turns into a good guy.But the ending saved it.Hirsch.REBOOT THIS SERIES!

I liked this episode since it was basically were you meet Bill for the first time and he's the main antagonist of the show and those of you who are up to date on your gravity falls SPOILER ALERT should know that Bill has the rift and is basically taken over the world and dipper and everyone are going to try to defeat him hopefully for the last time since there has been many battles with bill in the past and I can't wait for the next episode since we were left at a cliff hanger until the 26th of October 2015

"Very dark and not nearly enough jokes. This episode isn't any fun to watch at all..."
Dude, you realise that this was dark and a bit more serious because this episode was meant to be filled with small clues and secrets for the viewer, plus Dipper finally talks to Wendy about his feelings.

I loved this episodes adventure but it was very dark
