Classic Videogames Get Nod From Gravity Falls

This coming Friday, the Disney Channel’s trippy new animated show Gravity Falls will throw an oddly nostalgic treat to kids who are into retro videogames and adults who played the said videogames when they first came out, as the upcoming episode channels several old school videogames.

In the episode, the seminal 2D fighting game Street Fighter is channeled as Dipper convinces pixilated pal Rumble McSkirmish (voice by Brian Bloom of The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes) to give Robby a slight scare, which is odd because his rival has never committed something that would warrant an 80s-arcade style payback, like say, kidnapping one’s girlfriend or killing someone’s father.

The episode will also pay tribute to other retro game icons such as Donkey Kong, Tron, and Pac Man as it airs on Friday, Sept 14, 9:30/8:30c on the Disney Channel. So tune in and hold the quarters, because Gravity Falls is always set to Free Play.

The following two tabs change content below.

Neil Raymundo
