Anytime I see those “God that rep from two years ago was so bad” posts, I think about Gravity Falls.
I think about the fact that Alex Hirsch wanted the cupid character (who appeared in ONE episode) to have the MLM/WLW symbols on his necklace, but Disney shot it down because it was seen as inappropriate for a kid’s show.
I think about the sheriff characters, who’s “relationship” was used as a running gag to laugh at. Who’s kiss in the last scene at the end of the series damn near made people go INSANE. These were two characters who were no one’s favorites and who served as comedy relief, but it was still seen as a huge win for rep because it happened at all.
I think about the fact that Gravity Falls, a show where dead animals speak in tongues as blood drips from their eyes, couldn’t have anywhere near the amount of rep that the creators wanted to add because it “wasn’t for kids”
And now we have men getting married to their husbands and women getting married to their wives on screen. We have boys with boyfriends and girls with girlfriends and characters that are purposely gnc or androgynous. We have characters with pride pins or flags in their rooms. We have cartoons like Blues Clues that have been around for AGES making entire videos dedicated to pride for kids.
Just... things get better. Representation gets better because people fight to make it happen. We can’t act like they were “basically nothing” because without them we would HAVE nothing.
Edit: the Cupid necklace was likely the trans symbol

Insider is creating a database to track queer representation in children's cartoons. I searched through it a bit and it's pretty cool. I wished it had some links to sources of confirmation to some of them and I'm not sure exactly how accurate it is, but it seems accurate enough at first glance. You can check it out yourself if you want.

I love the trend (trope?) in cartoons where the adult with a criminal record ends up being a better parental figure than a higher class rich adult.

When Dipper and Mabel Pines arrive to spend their summer break in the remote town of Gravity Falls, Mabel’s suspiciously weird new boyfriend causes the twins to come face to face with the town’s strange and uncanny secrets. The First Episode of Gravity Falls, “Tourist Trapped”, premiered on this day, 9 Years Ago.

I thought I’d share with Tumblr the best screenshot edit I’ve ever made. Not necessarily best in quality, but best in concept.

I wanted to get this done for June 15th, but that's already passed in my timezone. :/

Ok, I'm gonna pop off for a bit because this has been driving me nuts for like a decade now - I'm real tired of seeing people (who either don't understand how show production works or are willingly choosing to ignore it) going after showrunner's throats when who they're really pissy with are the corporations that host those shows.
Stuff like plot, internal continuity, and character development are writing issues that can be critiqued in a vacuum, stuff like pacing, representation, and runtime are not.
If you are mad that a show was too short, that it's pacing was shitty or it's representation wasn't good enough, that is an issue with the higher ups in the network, not the writers and showrunners.
You need to redirect your anger at CN, Disney and Nickelodeon, go after them for holding animation back, and leave showrunners the fuck alone.
Do you really think that Infinity Train would end on an awkward fourth book, that Korra and Asami would only hold hands, that Legend of Korra would have such a bizarre second season, that Steven Universe would reduce it's final arc to five fucking episodes, that Gravity Falls would hide it's LBGT characters in the background, that The Owl House would end after three seasons, that so many shows would wait until their last episode to confirm their character's sexualities, if they had the choice to do something else???
Take your torches and pitchforks to capitalism's doors, not creators'.
