About Ford Pines

Stanford Filbrick “Ford” Pines, or Grunkle Ford, is the twin brother of Grunkle Stan and one of the main characters from the Disney cartoon show Gravity Falls. Ford moved to Gravity Falls, Oregon in hope of researching and investigating the supernatural world that seems to be very prevalent in the small town. What he didn’t expect to happen was disappearing into an alternate reality for years!

When Ford finally escaped and returned to the present day, he found out that he wasn’t quite up to speed on his surroundings. Though still believing floppy disks were the technology of choice, he is still a very brilliant man. He can become consumed by his research because he has such a strong passion for it. His intelligence outweighs his lack of knowledge in the modern world, but he isn’t one to share his research with his loved ones. He would rather retreat into his own world and not involve anyone.
