Fans had long suspected that minor characters Sheriff Blubs and Deputy Durlandwere an item, but after the Sheriff helped save the deputy, they finally admitted their love for one another!

Gravity Falls joins Nickelodeon's The Legend of Korra and Cartoon Network'sSteven Universe, Clarence, and — to a lesser extant — Adventure Time as cartoons with out gay characters.2
