'''NOTE: The following are Old Man McGucket's theories and observations, and not all are true.'''
 
   
*The hidden meaning behind the number [[618]].
+
==List of segments==
**He has seen it in various places throughout the town.
+
* "[[6-18]]"
**He believes that the number is "a clue from a [[Alex Hirsch|creature from another dimension]] that [they are] all just drawings on a page."
+
* "[[Cryptograms (short)|Cryptograms]]"
*There is something strange about [[Stan Pines]].
+
* "[[Eyes]]"
**He used to know [[author|someone]] who looks exactly like Stan Pines. They look close enough to be twins.
+
* "[[Government Agency]]"
*There is meaning behind the [[List of cryptograms|cryptograms]] seen throughout the series.
+
* "[[The Ice Man]]"
**McGucket is able to read the cryptograms, but cannot understand them.
+
* "[[Laptop Code]]"
**He has tried various methods/languages to decipher the cryptograms, including "possum [[wikipedia:Sanskrit|Sanskrit]]" and some form of western [[Manotaurs|Manotaur]] script.
+
* "[[Medalions]]"
*The possible meaning behind the code on his [[laptop]] (M052584).
+
* "[[Relation Shipping]]"
**McGucket doesn't recall the code having been on his laptop before.
+
* "[[Stan's Brother]]"
**It might be a phone number, date or the number of hairs on his beard.
+
* "[[Triangles]]"
**He believes that "it's the coordinates for the passage back to Possum Town," which he insists exists.
 
*There is a secret society which people wearing gold medallions are a part of. This includes:
 
**Stan Pines
 
**[[Sheriff Blubs]]
 
**[[Sergei]]
 
**The carnee who was in charge of the game where [[Dipper Pines|Dipper]] tries to knock down bottles to win a [[Stuffed creature of indeterminate species|stuffed animal]] for [[Wendy Corduroy|Wendy]] at the [[Mystery Fair]].
 
**McGucket is worried that he might unknowingly be a member, since he has a gold tooth.
 
*FBI Agents [[Agent Powers|Powers]] and [[Agent Trigger|Trigger]] are watching everyone.
 
**They can be found subtly hiding in various locations.
 
**They are even seen at [[Globnar]] and [[Hoo-Ha Owl's Pizzamatronic Jamboree]].
 
*Who the ice on the [[Bill Cipher Wheel]] represents.
 
**We already know that the pine tree is Dipper.
 
**We know that the star is [[Gideon Gleeful|Gideon]].
 
**We know that the glasses are McGucket (however, this is followed by a clip of Dipper saying that he doesn't think this is true).
 
**The ice might represent [[Will E. Badger]] since "he's so cool."
 
**The ice might represent [[Wax figures#Wax Sherlock Holmes|Wax Sherlock Holmes]], since he melted and could have used some ice.
 
**The ice might represent [[Blendin Blandin]]. No reason is given for this, but it is likely because Blendin bumped into Dipper, making him drop the ice that he was getting for Wendy.
 
*People who have one eye are connected. This includes:
 
**[[Lazy Susan]], who always has only one eye open.
 
**Stan Pines, who covers one of his eyes with an eye patch.
 
**[[Blind Ivan]]
 
**[[Bill Cipher]]
 
**The [[Ghost of Northwest Manor|lumberjack]], who is missing an eye.
 
*There is something suspicious about triangles, which have been spotted in various forms, including:
 
**The window in the attic of the [[Mystery Shack]] that has a triangle with an eye on it.
 
**[[Infinite pizza slice|Infinity pizza]]
 
**Nacho earrings
 
**Road cones
 
**Road cones are trying to take over the world and put squares and circles in their place.
 
*People who have been "relation shipping" in town:
 
**[[Mabel Pines|Mabel]] and [[Mermando]]
 
**Dipper and [[Pacifica Northwest|Pacifica]] (this is followed by a clip of Dipper and Mabel saying "ew")

"Old Man" McGucket's Conspiracy Corner!

"Old Man" McGucket's Conspiracy Corner!

"Old Man" McGucket's Conspiracy Corner Marathon was a special Gravity Falls season 2 marathon which aired twice on April 19, 2015. They included special segments that were written and directed by Scott Jones.[1]

Synopsis

During the marathon were segments during the commercials of each episode, titled "'Old Man' McGucket's Conspiracy Corner," in which a puppet of Old Man McGucket talks about his conspiracy theories regarding the anomalies in Gravity Falls, Oregon, as well as other observations he's made about the town. Some of these theories and observations are true, while others are either incorrect or unproven.

Apparently McGucket was only given a corner because they "don't trust him with a whole room." His "corner" consists only of real objects, with no cartoon animation. There is a bulletin board with various clues pinned on it, with red string connecting some of them together. Several of the clues were seen throughout the show, including:
