Disney has dubbed over Louis C.K.'s voice on Gravity Falls, following his admission of sexual misconduct.

Gravity Falls is a Disney XD animated series created by Alex Hirsh, which aired from 2012 through 2016. The show followed twins Dipper and Mabel Pines (voiced by Jason Ritter and Kristen Schaal) as they went on adventures encountering magical creatures while trying to solve mysteries during a never-ending summer at their great uncle Stan's house. One of those creatures was The Horrifying Sweaty One-Armed Monstrosity, which (as the name implies) is a huge head with one giant arm growing out of it. The creature was voiced by Louis C.K. in multiple episodes in the series.

But "in the wake of" allegations of sexual misconduct and C.K.'s admission that "these stories are true," his vocal parts in the show have been redubbed by Hirsh. A spokesperson for Disney Channel confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter.

"The role was re-recorded approximately one month ago and new versions of three episodes are now on the Disney XD schedule around the world. Series creator and executive producer Alex Hirsch is now credited as playing the character."

While the voice has been re-dubbed, some fans might not even notice, since it sounds pretty similar. Hirsh also voices Stan (and other miscellaneous voices) in the series -- so he has plenty of experience. Here is the new clip, using the voice of Hirsh.

And for reference, here's the original, with the voice of Louis C.K.
