Louis C.K.’s absence has makers of Gravity Falls go in for re-dubbing


Following his public admission to sexual misconduct in the press, the absence of comedian Louis C.K. continues.

Having already lost his TBS toon, repercussions are raging along in the animation biz with the news that his character on Disney XD’s popular Gravity Falls will be re-dubbed.


“The role was re-recorded approximately one month ago and new versions of three episodes are now on the Disney XD schedule around the world,” a Disney Channel spokesperson has said. “Series creator and executive producer Alex Hirsch is now credited as playing the character.”

The character, ‘The Horrifying Sweaty One-Armed Monstrosity’ first appears in the season two episode Weirdmageddon: Part 1.” Composed of a disembodied, ginger-haired, stubbly man’s head with a giant arm growing out of the crown, the creature mostly crawls around and tries to convince people to climb into his mouth.
