In the episode "Dreamscaperers", a British dog-man is seen that Soos apparently has nightmares about. It ends up being killed in a non-graphic way, but it should be noted that it's just a thought form.

Soos's father leaves him when he's very young, which leads to Soos being sad at every birthday because his dad isn't there.

Gideon is rude to both Dipper and Mabel and at the end of season 2 Dipper gives a dramatic speech thing and Gideon decides to be better, but I don't think Mabel or Dipper outright forgive him. Also I don't think Grunkle Stan is abusive especially once his intentions are revealed^-^

The antagonists of the show tend to stalk others constantly, a notable instance is in the episode "Soos and the Real Girl", where Soos finds out that a video game character has been stalking him.

No, but in episode 2 Stan tells the joke "My ex-wife still misses me, but her aim is getting better!", and follows it up with "It's funny because marriage is terrible", which sort of alludes to domestic abuse.

Several antagonists are gaslighters. In "Sock Opera", Bill Cipher tries to get Dipper to stop trusting his family. In "Soos and the Real Girl", Giffany attempts to manipulate Soos into staying with her forever, claiming that he could never find a real love interest. Gideon also constantly gaslights other people by pretending to be innocent, but eventually gets his comeuppance in the season 1 finale and later redeems himself.

There is not directly alcohol, but some episodes reference Mabel drinking orange juice (child alcohol?) by chugging it down and making a bitter face. I'm pretty sure Grunkle Stan also drinks "expired apple cider" which is kind of an alcohol reference. Not abusing alcohol, but just a warning for those who want to avoid those kinds of jokes :)

No, but in "Boss Mabel", Soos approaches a woman while he's in a fairly revealing outfit. He has no intent of doing any harm, but she is shocked by his behavior and begins pepper spraying him. Gideon is also seen harassing Mabel on multiple occasions, though nothing too out of line happens.

A few mentions of cannibalism, notably in "Carpet Diem" (Soos switches bodies with a pig, and McGucket still wants to try to eat him even after he's back to normal), "Society of the Blind Eye" (A gnome mentions resorting to cannibalism), and "Northwest Mansion Mystery" (Preston says that they'll have enough food to last them a week because they'll eat the butler). The Manotaurs (shown in "Dipper vs. Manliness") are also heavily implied to be cannibals, as they are cow-like beings that eat beef jerky and their leader is briefly seen eating an old Manotaur.

In season 2 episode 4 ("Sock Opera"), [SPOILERS]: after Bill possesses Dipper's body, he descends the stairs by throwing himself (in Dipper's body) down them. This doesn't seem to bother Bill at all, despite this being the body he is inhabiting, and while we know this causes injury to Dipper's body, not much of said injury caused during this moment is visibly shown after the fact.

No kids die, but most (if not all) episodes involve kids/teens in danger. There are also a few moments that come very close: in "The Inconveniencing", multiple teenagers are trapped in parts of the convenience store, though they end up being freed. in "Double Dipper", a 12 year old clones himself multiple times, and by the end most of the clones die off. In "Summerween", a monster eats a child alive, but towards the end of the episode it is revealed that he survived and makes it out okay (despite claiming to be traumatized). In the "Weirdmageddon" arc, many characters in the show end up being frozen in stone, including kids/teenagers, though they make it out okay in the end. There is another clone/imitation of a kid that ends up being destroyed as well. Additionally, the primary antagonist explicitly threatens to kill the main characters during the finale.

Mabel frequently crushes over boys but 90% of the time it’s with people in her age group and doesn’t go beyond what you’d expect from a “weird tween girl”. YMMV on underage romance plots but I personally vote no

Season 2 Eps. 19-21: Multiple residents of Gravity Falls are turned to stone by eyebats, and kidnapped from the streets for the throne of Bill Cipher (which he unfortunately never uses). Season 2 Ep. 17: Stanford Pines is kidnapped by a security droid from the UFO in Gravity Falls, but is saved by Dipper.
Some other examples of characters being held hostage: Tourist Trapped: Mabel is kidnapped and tied down by gnomes. Double Dipper: the Dipper copies lock Dipper classic (the real Dipper) in a closet. The Deep End: there is a boy in solitary confinement in the pool. Boyz Crazy: Mabel keeps Sev’ral times hostage in the attic of the Mystery Shack. Land Before Swine: Waddles is kidnapped by a pterodactyl. The Golf War: Pacifica is kidnapped by the Lilliputians to win Mabel’s favor (and is planned on being killed). Little Gift Shop of Horrors: Stan’s hands are taken from him by a hand witch. Society of the Blind Eye: multiple characters are kidnapped throughout the episode including Lazy Susan, Dipepr, Mabel, Wendy, Soos, and Fiddleford (Old Man) H. Mcgucket. Blendin’s Game: Dipper and Mabel are kidnapped by the Time Paradox Avoidance Enforcement Sqaudron and Blendin Blenjamin Blandin, and forced to partake in Globnar. Not What he Seems: Stan is taken into custody by the government. Dungeons, Dungeons, and More Dungeons: Dipper and Stanford are captured by Probabilitor (the wizard) and planned to have their brains eaten. The Stanchurian Candidate: Dipper and Mabel are kidnapped by a possessed (by Lil’ Gideon) Bud Gleeful and put in a mountain to be trapped.

The journals are destroyed by Bill in the "Weirdmaggedon" arc, and Dipper is obviously distraught as he watches. They're not exactly toys, but they are objects that mean a lot to a certain character, so I think they count. (Should be noted that according to the tie-in "Journal 3", the journals were restored along with most other things Bill destroyed, however.)

There are probably more instances than this, but in "Summerween", two children show Stan a jumpscare video; it starts off with a video of a kitten, but quickly cuts to a video showing a monster. It's not too scary, but I can see this being potentially upsetting to those who have been tricked into watching these kinds of videos.

The most notable incident is probably the episode "Sock Opera", in which Dipper is possessed by the series villain for most of the day, while Dipper follows his body around as a ghost. The demon abandons this by the end of the episode, when Dipper's body is too tired to keep up. No permanent damage is done, though.

Stan is also seen about to get into the bath in "Summerween", and his towel falls off, frightening two children who were initially presumed to have seen him naked. It is later revealed that he was just in his underwear. Also, in the season 1 finale we can see a gnome bathing in a bathtub full of squirrels (it's just as weird as it sounds).

A one-off, unnamed background character is implied to wet himself, but nothing is seen/heard and he is seen later in the background to be completely fine.

Grenda also says "I wet myself" very matter-of-factly in the Summerween episode but it's very quick and no other attention is drawn to it.

A character is arrested and taken in for questioning by the police. No jail cells are seen or anything of that nature, but they are put in a room and handcuffed to a chair. Episode: "Not What He Seems".

In other episode, there is a very brief flashback scene that shows Stan sitting in a jail cell with two inmates. It's a one-off joke that only lasts a few seconds. Episode: "Dreamscapers"

Not of an actually queer person from what we know but Mabel photographs Dipper giving CPR to a man (“kissing”) and says she’ll use it as blackmail. This is played as a joke and I wasn’t thrilled to hear it.

Not firmly stated to be PTSD, but there are some characters that show clear signs of being traumatized; Stan and Ford are two prominent examples.

During the episode "Sock Opera", when Dipper is possessed, the demon possessing him has Dipper hurt himself in various ways, including stabbing his arm with forks, deliberately falling down a staircase, and slapping himself. The demon seems to enjoy this, stating that "Pain is hilarious!"

There is a mentally ill character who is often putting people in danger and talks about creating a homicidal robot. It can be argued that many of the antagonists in the finale fall under this category as well.

The eating sounds usually don't sound much like actual eating and aren't heavily focused on, although it could be worth mentioning that there's some throat-clearing occasionally.

Dipper has a lot of anxiety and at one point almost even shoots someone (in self defense) during an anxiety attack. Also another character is at one point during a flashback shown to be extremely paranoid and threatens someone with a crossbow.

in season 2 ep 1 when mabel and dipper are fighting zombies, they throw a disco ball into one of their mouths and it flashes pretty slowly over the next few seconds. not sure if it's bad enough to bother anyone, but thought i'd mention it.

The episode "Little Gift Shop of Horrors" mostly consists of Stan talking directly to the viewer. There's also some camera interaction, including Stan knocking the viewer out and putting them in an exhibit. This episode is non-canon and doesn't really have any impact on the series, so you can skip it if this is triggering for you.

Cartoon babies appear occasionally. There's a brief scene in "Carpet Diem" in which there's a fairly realistic drawing of a fetus shown in a book, although this is only onscreen for a few seconds.

Soos the handyman admits to being called "Big Dude" by Robbie, which hurt his feelings. He's also on occasion been called a "large hairless gopher" by Ford and possible others, saying "he gets that a lot." Stan has also self depreciatedly refereed to himself as fat and out of shape.

Responding to a previous comment, Soos isn't really an "idiot" and he's generally portrayed to be very kind and enthusiastic, so at the very least he certainly wasn't intended by the writers to embody any negative stereotypes.

There are two characters in the show that are rather heavily indicated to be LGBT+ throughout the series. (Spoiler) One of them ends up being frozen in stone in one of the last episodes, as well as a lot of other characters in the show, but he makes it out okay.

Not really, but there is a deformed clone of Dipper that is mostly played as a joke, which is shown in the episode "Double Dipper". Also, McGucket is often called "the local kook".

Not from what I remember, but there is something that may be worth a mention: a recurring theme throughout the series of Dipper (age 12) having a crush on Wendy (age 15), and although they're only about 3 years apart, Wendy later comments that their ages are too far apart for each other.

This is a show aimed at kids, so obviously there isn't anything explicitly sexual, but innuendos and adult humor are fairly frequent. Very mild nudity in nonsexual contexts is occasionally seen, and puberty is sometimes referenced as well, to name a few.

The character of Old Man McGucket lives at the dump. He is mistreated by some of the local teens with the little property he has getting spray painted, but I don't remember what episode this happens in. His homelessness is explicitly caused by a mental decline and others shunning him for it, if that impacts you. In the end he does get a house.

Yes, in the episode summerween sous hits a monster with his car and it explodes. There is also a very brief but unnecessary scene at the very beginning of the episode Legend of the Gobblewonker where Stan’s car comes close to hitting an animal. It gets away safely but it’s still a little disturbing.

There are a few scenes with a sci-fi style gun wielded by one character, but no bullets, gunfights, or serious gore involved. The only uses of that gun, as far as I can recall, are an unsuccessful attack on the main villain, and the scene at the end silently threatening the bus driver.
