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.

Disney Channel will air the British pre-teen supernatural series Wolfblood in October as part of its month-long "Monstober" schedule of Halloween-themed favorites.
Wolfblood centers on 14-year-old Maddy (Aimee Kelly), who has a secret: She's a "wolfblood." These creatures — neither wolf nor human — possess extraordinary strength, super speed and heightened senses.
Disney Channel will air the entire first season of Wolfblood on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights at 8/7c from Oct. 1 through Oct. 24. In the premiere, Maddy discovers that the new boy at school, Rhydian (Bobby Lockwood), also shares her secret.

Turns out a mysterious prehistoric creature is terrorizing Gravity Falls, and is at the heart of Waddles' disappearance. In the episode, "Land Before Swine," the group discovers a secret deep inside a "Jurassic-y cave" as they work to save Waddles.
