Over 30 years before [[Dipper Pines|Dipper]] and [[Mabel Pines|Mabel's]] arrival in Gravity Falls, [[Old Man McGucket|Fiddleford McGucket]] founded the Blind Eye Society, intending to help remove unwanted memories from others using a [[Memory erasing gun|device]] he created and used continuously on himself. While McGucket's mind deteriorated from the negative side effects of the contraption, the society soldiered on in utter secrecy, now intent on keeping the citizens of Gravity Falls blissfully ignorant of the town's supernatural secrets. The Blind Eye Society eventually found itself under the command of [[Blind Ivan]], a more conniving and malicious leader than his predecessor.

This page is for Blind Eye Society, the society. For the episode, see Society of the Blind Eye.

The Blind Eye Society was a secret society operating in Gravity Falls, Oregon for many years until it was forced to apparently disband.

History

Over 30 years before Dipper and Mabel's arrival in Gravity Falls, Fiddleford McGucket founded the Blind Eye Society, intending to help remove unwanted memories from others using a device he created and used continuously on himself. While McGucket's mind deteriorated from the negative side effects of the contraption, the society soldiered on in utter secrecy, now intent on keeping the citizens of Gravity Falls blissfully ignorant of the town's supernatural secrets. The Blind Eye Society eventually found itself under the command of Blind Ivan, a more conniving and malicious leader than his predecessor.

During the twins' visit to Gravity Falls, the society remains constantly present, shown to have even erased the memories of Robbie's encounter with Rumble McSkirmish in "Fight Fighters." A graffiti tag of the organization's symbol, represented by an 'eye' crossed out with an 'X', is seen in both "The Golf War" and "Soos and the Real Girl."

S2e7 the society of losers

The society reveals itself.

Lazy Susan becomes their latest victim in "Society of the Blind Eye," in which she is brought before the society after witnessing a group of gnomes attempt to steal her pie. Meanwhile, Dipper, Mabel, Soos, and Wendy accompany Old Man McGucket into the Gravity Falls Museum of History, believing the society to be responsible for his insanity. After a confrontation with Blind Ivan and its members now revealed to be several notable townspeople, the kids are almost robbed of their entire summer experiences. However, McGucket returns to rescue his allies and together they defeat the society members.

The Blind Eye Society is ultimately disbanded after its current members are ironically warped of their memories of any involvement with the organization, however, Ivan unfortunately suffers long-term memory loss, similar to the society's founder, likely because he had no life outside of the society.

Despite this, there is at least one member of the society whose memories were not erased.
