Tuesday TV: One for the Family (Toy Story) and One for Adults (Girlfriends' Guide)

It was only a matter of time before animation's most playful franchise delivered a TV special for the Christmas holiday season, and ABC's new Toy Story That Time Forgot (Tuesday, 8/7c) is the opposite of forgettable, an instant delight that is sure to be a favorite perennial for years to come. While all of the usual Pixar playmates are along for the ride, the focus of this two-days-after-Christmas fable is the adorable dinosaur toy Trixie (winningly voiced by Kristen Schaal), who's longing for her "kid" master Bonnie to see her for the creature she is. But imagination is a funny thing, and Toy Story is nothing if not a celebration of the special bond children have for their toys, which they use (and sometimes abuse, or neglect) as they see fit.

7 Reasons Why Netflix's BoJack Horseman Is the Funniest Show of the Fall

Netflix has done it again.

While the Broadcast Sitcom Assembly Line has generated shows ranging from the lukewarm (A to Z) to the downright languid (Mulaney), Netflix has trotted out (heh) BoJack Horseman, the rare show whose execution lives up to its ambition.

In this fall's stale comedy landscape, BoJack is like a breath of fresh air — and it's clear that Netflix has faith in its latest project, which was renewed four days after it premiered last month. The cartoon's just-go-with-it premise follows the title character (voiced by Will Arnett), a washed-up former equine star of the '90s hit sitcom "Horsin' Around" who's trying to write his memoir. The show really finds its footing by Episode 3, which skewers ...

First Look: Nathan Fillion Guest Stars on Disney XD's Gravity Falls

Perhaps Richard Castle can solve the spooky mystery of Gravity Falls. On Monday's episode of the hit Disney XD animated series, Castle star Nathan Fillion makes a guest appearance.

Fillion plays Preston Northwest, the father of local tween Pacifica — who's an archrival of Mabel Pines (Kristen Schaal). In the episode "The Golf War," Mabel challenges Pacifica to a rousing game of miniature golf. Things get out of hand, however, when a group of local residents — the Lilliputians — offer their help. Also guest starring is Patton Oswalt (The Goldbergs) as Franz, one of the Lilliputian leaders.

First Look: Disney XD's Gravity Falls Returns for Season 2

The mysterious and quirky world of Gravity Falls is finally back for another season after a year-long break. The Disney XD animated cult fave picks up where Season 1 left off, as nemesis Lil' Gideon has been defeated and the Pines family looks to return things to normal.

In the Season 2 opener "Scary-oke," Grunkle Stan, Dipper and Mabel Pines throw a "Mystery Shack is Back" party — but then some unwelcome guests crash it. The episode premieres on Friday, Aug. 1 at 9/8c on Disney Channel, before moving to its regular home, Disney XD, on Monday, Aug. 4 at 9/8c.

Immediately following the Monday airing, at 9:30/8:30c, Disney XD will air another episode, "Into the Bunker." The episode follows Dipper as his secret journal pages lead him to the author's hidden bunker — where they meet a mysterious Gravity Falls figure.

First Look: Disney XD Premieres New Gravity Falls Shorts

As Gravity Falls fans await the second season adventures of Grunkle Stan, Dipper and Mabel Pines, Disney XD plans to tide them over with two new shorts.

Disney XD will air the Gravity Falls short "Mabel's Scrapbook: Heist Movie" on Monday, June 2, at 6:59/5:59c; an hour later, it will run "Mabel's Scrapbook: Petting Zoo" at 7:59/6:59c.

Disney renewed the hit animated series, created by young animator Alex Hirsch, for a second season last year. Season 1 premiered on Disney Channel, but the network decided to move Gravity Falls and another cartoon, Wander Over Yonder, to Disney XD this year. (No return date has been announced yet for Gravity Falls.) Both shows feature a slightly older, edgier tone that likely fits better with the pre-teen Disney XD crowd.

Gravity Falls — a mix of Twin Peaks, The X-Files, Lost and the animated feature Monster House, wrapped in a comedic, irreverent bow — features the voices of Hirsch, Jason Ritter, Kristen Schaal and Linda Cardellini. Hirsch, Ritter and Schaal are set to participate in a live reading and Q&A session with fans at the Los Angeles Film Festival on Saturday, June 14.
