Fans of the cartoon Gravity Falls have been speculating that characters Sheriff Blubs and Deputy Durland may have been more than colleagues, and a couple moments in the show’s finale hinted fairly strongly that the two are a gay couple. Airing on Disney XD, the two characters expressed their love for one another and also discussed how special spending time together is.
The creator of the show, Alex Hirsch, told Redditors that he was all for introducing gay characters, but was concerned with how the network would react. “I would LOVE to but I doubt they’d ever let me do it in kids TV. But man I would if I could,” he wrote.
Disney Channel (not XD) introduced a lesbian couple on their hit show Good Luck Charlie in 2014.
