Alexander Robert "Alex" Hirsch (born June 18, 1985) is an American animator, storyboard artist, voice actor, and television producer. He is best known as the creator of the Disney XD (formerly Disney Channel) animated television series Gravity Falls, where he voices some of the characters. He has previously worked as a storyboard artist on the Cartoon Network series The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack and the Disney Channel series Fish Hooks.
Hirsch is most known for creating the series "Gravity Falls" for the Disney Channel. He provides the voice of Grunkle Stan, Soos, Old Man McGucket, & Bill Cipher as well as many other minor characters featured throughout the show.
Hirsch first started out as a writer and storyboard artist for The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack where he worked alongside and befriended fellow animators J.G. Quintel (who would go on to create Regular Show) and Pendleton Ward (who would go on to create Adventure Time).
Hirsch later moved on to be the writer, storyboard artist and creative consultant for Fish Hooks, which he also developed for television alongside Maxwell Atoms, where he portrays Clamantha, her father, Fumble, one of the fish police and a Ferret.
He places many of his real-life experiences in the show, Gravity Falls, like living in Piedmont and trick-or-treating with his sister as cats. He based Mabel on his twin sister, Ariel Hirsch, and based the entire show loosely on his childhood summers. He gave Mabel a pig in the show, just like his sister had always wanted when she was a kid.
