'''Gnomes''' first appear in "[[Tourist Trapped]]," where they team up to become '''Norman'''. They do this to capture [[Mabel Pines|Mabel]] so that they could make her their queen, however, [[Dipper Pines|Dipper]] saves his sister from them as soon as they reach their hideout in the woods. ''[[Journal 3]]'' classifies them as "little men of the [[Gravity Falls Forest]]." According to the [[Manotaurs]], gnomes apparently live in the trees of the forest. They have no known weaknesses until Dipper and Mabel blow the gnomes away with a leaf blower.

'''Gnomes''' are tree-dwelling creatures of the [[Gravity Falls Forest]]. Their weaknesses were previously unknown, until [[Dipper Pines|Dipper]] and [[Mabel Pines|Mabel]] discovered their susceptibility to leaf blowers.
   
 
==History==
 
==History==
Five of the gnomes (Jeff, Carson, Steve, Jason, and Shmebulock) are first disguised as "Norman," whom Dipper believes was a [[The Undead|zombie]]. Mabel has an enormous crush on "Norman." Little did she knew that "Norman" was truly a group of gnomes.
+
Prior to the arrival of Dipper and Mabel Pines in [[Gravity Falls, Oregon|Gravity Falls]], [[Ford Pines]] encountered his first gnomes in his own [[Mystery Shack|home]], arguing politics with a stuffed bear head. One also stole his glasses and ate his cassette tapes. Displaying their uncanny ability of combining to create monstrous formations and attempting to kidnap him as an offering for their queen left Ford with an "unsettling" impression.
   
Jeff is the gnomes' leader. In ''Journal 3'', their creature number is 24. They can build, with their bodies, a giant gnome monster by stacking and climbing on top of each other. All of them are voiced by [[Alex Hirsch]].

Shortly before the events of "[[Tourist Trapped]]," the previous gnome queen was eaten by a badger<ref>{{Cite game|GFLOTGG}}</ref>. At her funeral, the gnomes ate bereavement jam.<ref>{{Cite special|BTP}}</ref>
   
They later appear in "[[Gideon Rises]]," where Dipper and Mabel promise to make Gideon their new gnome queen if they helped them get the [[Mystery Shack]] back from him. There are also some fake lawn gnomes in the front yard of [[Abuelita's house]].

Mabel has an enormous crush on "Norman." Little did she know that Norman is truly a group of gnomes, who wanted to make Mabel their new queen.
   
They appear again in "[[Society of the Blind Eye]]," unfazed when [[Lazy Susan]] finds them trying to steal a piece of pie. After Lazy Susan is abducted by the society, they carry on to retrieve the pie. They run away with it and Jeff informs Steve that he was close to eating him due to lack of food.

They later appear in "[[Gideon Rises]]," where Dipper and Mabel promise to let them make [[Gideon Gleeful|Gideon]] their new gnome queen if they helped them get the [[Mystery Shack]] back from him. There are also some fake lawn gnomes in the front yard of [[Abuelita's house]].
   
Shmebulock's father, Shmebulock Senior, appears in [[Ford Pines|Ford's]] flashback in "[[A Tale of Two Stans]]".
+
===Season 2===
  +
They appear again in "[[Society of the Blind Eye]]," unfazed when [[Lazy Susan]] finds them trying to steal the pie from a window sill at [[Greasy's Diner]]. After Lazy Susan is abducted by the [[Blind Eye Society|society]], they carry on to retrieve the pie. They run away with it and Jeff informs Steve that he was close to eating him due to lack of food. They also appear in "[[The Love God]]," when the likenesses of Jeff, Carson, Steve, Jason and Shmebulock are formed by the [[Love God]] as a reappearance of Norman.
  +
  +
Shmebulock's father, Shmebulock Senior, appears in [[Ford Pines|Ford's]] flashback in "[[A Tale of Two Stans]]." As shown in "[[The Last Mabelcorn]]," they've a place called "Gnoman's Land" and they also have a tavern called "[[Gnasty's]]." A female gnome is shown and the gnome police is also seen in the episode. The words “R.I.P Schembulock Sr.” are carved in a tree which suggests that he is dead. In "[[Weirdmageddon Part 1]]," some run out of the forest. One calls Dipper "stretch," then one yells "[[Weirdness Wave|Weirdness wave]]!" while pointing towards the woods. In "[[Weirdmageddon 2: Escape From Reality]]," three gnomes are seen in the [[Mystery Shack]] as part of [[Stan Pines|Stan's]] resistance group against [[Bill Cipher|Bill]].
  +
  +
In "[[Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls|Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back the Falls]]," some gnomes successfully flee into the [[Mystery Shack]] (though one of them is frozen with only an arm unaffected) and are later members of the resistance. They were part of the group led by [[Old Man McGucket]] that took refuge inside the Mystery Shack. Stan comments that when they run out of food, they eat the gnomes, while Jeff hears it all, upset, and Stan shushes him, stating that stress will make him chewy. Later, Stan complains about how nobody respects him to Shmebulock, who patiently listens to him and replies "Schembulock." Some gnomes are seen helping to build the [[Shacktron]]. After Bill destroys it, some of them are surrounded by Bill's henchmaniacs, and [[Teeth]] swallows Schembulock, but spits him when he's being sucked back to [[Nightmare Realm]] after Bill's defeat. In the end, a number of gnomes are shown among the creatures waving off Dipper and Mabel as they leave. Shmebulock also signed the letter for the twins.
   
As shown in "[[The Last Mabelcorn]]", they have a place called "Gnoman's Land" and they also have a tavern called "[[Gnasty's]]". A female gnome is shown and there are also gnome police shown in the episode.

'''Jeff''' is the leader of the gnomes. He wears a dark red hat, has a pink nose, brown eyebrows and a brown beard. His shirt/sleeves are an aqua color, and he wears dark blue pants as well as black shoes. Jeff is the smartest, for he can speak more fluently than other gnomes, and he also appears younger than the other gnomes, and may be the leader due to this. Jeff could also have the ability to communicate with animals, as he was also seen bathing in squirrels. He is also the gnome that proposes to Mabel, and without him the other gnomes don't know what to do.He plays his most antagonistic role to date in [[Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets]], where he tricks Dipper and Mabel into retrieving the sacred Gemulets (which he calls "Gnome Gemulets" to make the twins believe they belonged to them) for him, only to become a dark entity and, thus, regaining his fellow gnomes' respect.

It is hinted that the gnomes learned how to live without following his or anyone's rules in the meantime.

'''Shmebulock''' is a wall-eyed gnome who operates Norman's left leg. He wears a pointy light red hat, a blue shirt and has a shaggy grey beard, mustache, buck teeth, and crooked grey eyebrows. He seems a bit absent minded and senile. Jeff can never remember this gnome's name. He tries to attack Mabel and Dipper while they're fleeing from the gnomes, but Dipper grabs him and smashes Shmebulock against the [[Mystery Cart]]'s horn three times, then throws him to the side of the road. In the episode "Gideon Rises," he hands Jeff his cologne, and admits the only thing he can say is "Shmebulock" '''but '''in [[Tourist Trapped]], he seems to be saying "Queen" like the others. This may mean that Shmebulock either lied to Jeff or "Shmebulock" is not his real name, rather, it is just what he replies with when people ask. His dad is Shmebulock Senior, which he looks almost exactly like.

'''Shmebulysses Q. Locke III''', known more commonly as '''Shmebulock''', is a wall-eyed gnome who operates Norman's left leg.

He seems a bit absent minded and senile, however in [[Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets|''Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets'']], it is revealed that he is actually quite intelligent but can not communicate his knowledge. Jeff often forgets his name.

In the episode "[[Gideon Rises]]", he hands Jeff his cologne, and says "Shmebulock" when Jeff questions if the only thing he can say is his name; however, in "Tourist Trapped", he seems to be saying "Queen" like the others. He also knows at least how to write his name, as he signed the letter [[Wendy Corduroy|Wendy]] gave to Dipper at the end of "[[Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls|Weirdmageddon 3]]." His father is Shmebulock Senior, whom he looks almost exactly like.
  +
  +
[[Gravity Falls: Lost Legends|''Gravity Falls: Lost Legends'']] reveals that Shmebulock is actually a very intelligent character, and that he had followed the Pines family around during the summer. He considers himself a fan of their adventures and is aware of the fourth wall. It's also explained in the beginning that, due to a curse cast by a dark warlock eons ago, he can only speak his "name", "Shmebulock"; once every thousand years, he is gifted by moonlight to speak normally. <ref name="GFLL">{{Cite book|GFLL}}</ref>

'''Shmebulock Senior''' was Shmebulock's father, who appeared in [[Ford Pines|Ford's]] flashback where Ford was studying him and recording him into his [[Journal 3|journal]] in "[[A Tale of Two Stans]]. Ford also asked what his name was, and he answers, "Shmebulock, Senior.", showing that he can say the word "Senior." In "[[The Last Mabelcorn]]", it is revealed that Shmebulock Senior died. After Ford measured him, he wrote that gnomes are 10" tall, in his journal.

Ford also asked what his name was, and he answers, "Shmebulock, Senior.," showing that he can say the word "senior," not just "Shmebulock," opposed to his son. In "[[The Last Mabelcorn]]," it is revealed that Shmebulock Senior died, as the words "R.I.P. Shmebulock Sr." were seen carved into a tree. After Ford measured him, he wrote that gnomes are 10" tall in ''Journal 3''.

The '''fairy dust dealer''' is a gloomy looking gnome who appears in "[[The Last Mabelcorn]]." Wendy, [[Grenda]] and [[Candy Chiu|Candy]] meet him at [[Enchanted Forest|Gnasty's]] gnome tavern when they're looking for a way to defeat [[Celestabellebethabelle]]. He tells them that fairy dust is the weakness of unicorns and offers to get them two bags of it in exchange for one bag of butterflies, whose traffic is forbidden in that part of the forest. He likes butterflies because they tickle his face and make him giggle. Later, during the trade, he's set up by the girls and the gnome police, and gets arrested.

They're armed with pine cones and have a deer equipped with a red beacon that they seem to use as a vehicle. The GPD has at least 5 officers, all seen in "[[The Last Mabelcorn]]" when the fairy dust dealer gets arrested. It seems there is corruption among its ranks, since the captain asked Grenda for his "cut" of fairy dust after the arrest.

He also has a long, white beard, that he uses as another limb in order hover above the ground.

[[File:Norman full of gnomes character sheet.jpg|thumb|right|The gnomes' character sheet.]]
Gnomes are shown to be very short creatures. They usually wear red pointy hats and most males have beards. Gnomes can have normal teeth like humans, or sharp pointy teeth, like animals. They have long beards that cover the sight of their body and really short legs. Females of the species weren't seen until "The Last Mabelcorn." They are generally similar in size and shape to the males, but lack beards. In ''[[Journal 3]]'', it says they are 10", though this doesn't make sense given Norman's height relative to other people.

==Behavior==
 
==Behavior==
Gnomes are generally upright, but when scared, they have been known to flee on all fours or betray whoever controls them and work for their opponent, such as the time when they quickly switched sides from Dipper and Mabel to Gideon in the episode "[[Gideon Rises]]". But, despite their cowardly nature, gnomes are more dangerous than they appear. The Gnomes seem to be the least respected by other creatures given their short stature and cowardly nature but they compensate in teamwork. However, it causes them to be somewhat egotistical as Jeff was boasting about how dangerous they can be, even though he was easily dealt with by Dipper using a shovel in "Tourist Trapped". They also seem capable of training animals and talking to them given that Jeff trained squirrels to follow his commands and speak to one by name, as well as being able to ride a deer.

Gnomes are social creatures and appear to have advanced social structures: they are ruled by a queen, they have criminal laws, a police force to enforce them and an "adorable owl" who acts as their judge.<ref name=":0">{{cite episode|215}}</ref> They also have commercial establishments such as taverns.<ref name=":0" /> They also seem capable of training animals and talking to them, given that Jeff trained squirrels to follow his commands and spoke to one by name<ref name=":1" /> and that the tavern has "squirrel parking." They also use deer as police vehicles.<ref name=":0" /> Gnomes can write, as evidenced by the inscriptions outside their tavern and on trees.
  +
  +
The gnome queen is normally a female gnome who is considered to be the "most beautiful." Once queen, she acts as a mediator, law enforcer<ref name="GFJ">{{cite book|GFJ|Gnomes}}</ref> and spouse to the other gnomes<ref name="TT">{{Cite episode|101}}</ref>. Without a queen, gnomes tend to become more feral in behavior<ref name="GFJ"></ref>.

Gnomes are tree-dwelling creatures of the Gravity Falls Forest. Their weaknesses were previously unknown, until Dipper and Mabel discovered their susceptibility to leaf blowers.

HistoryEdit

Prior to the arrival of Dipper and Mabel Pines in Gravity Falls, Ford Pines encountered his first gnomes in his own home, arguing politics with a stuffed bear head. One also stole his glasses and ate his cassette tapes. Displaying their uncanny ability of combining to create monstrous formations and attempting to kidnap him as an offering for their queen left Ford with an "unsettling" impression.

Shortly before the events of "Tourist Trapped," the previous gnome queen was eaten by a badger[4]. At her funeral, the gnomes ate bereavement jam.[5]

Season 1Edit

In "Tourist Trapped," five of the gnomes (Jeff, Carson, Steve, Jason and Shmebulock) are first seen disguised as "Norman," whom Dipper believes is a zombie. Mabel has an enormous crush on "Norman." Little did she know that Norman is truly a group of gnomes, who wanted to make Mabel their new queen.

Jeff is the gnomes' leader. In Journal 3, their creature number is 24. They can build with their bodies a giant gnome monster by stacking and climbing on top of each other. All of them are voiced by Alex Hirsch.

They later appear in "Gideon Rises," where Dipper and Mabel promise to let them make Gideon their new gnome queen if they helped them get the Mystery Shack back from him. There are also some fake lawn gnomes in the front yard of Abuelita's house.

Season 2Edit

They appear again in "Society of the Blind Eye," unfazed when Lazy Susan finds them trying to steal the pie from a window sill at Greasy's Diner. After Lazy Susan is abducted by the society, they carry on to retrieve the pie. They run away with it and Jeff informs Steve that he was close to eating him due to lack of food. They also appear in "The Love God," when the likenesses of Jeff, Carson, Steve, Jason and Shmebulock are formed by the Love God as a reappearance of Norman.

Shmebulock's father, Shmebulock Senior, appears in Ford's flashback in "A Tale of Two Stans." As shown in "The Last Mabelcorn," they've a place called "Gnoman's Land" and they also have a tavern called "Gnasty's." A female gnome is shown and the gnome police is also seen in the episode. The words “R.I.P Schembulock Sr.” are carved in a tree which suggests that he is dead. In "Weirdmageddon Part 1," some run out of the forest. One calls Dipper "stretch," then one yells "Weirdness wave!" while pointing towards the woods. In "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape From Reality," three gnomes are seen in the Mystery Shack as part of Stan's resistance group against Bill.

In "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back the Falls," some gnomes successfully flee into the Mystery Shack (though one of them is frozen with only an arm unaffected) and are later members of the resistance. They were part of the group led by Old Man McGucket that took refuge inside the Mystery Shack. Stan comments that when they run out of food, they eat the gnomes, while Jeff hears it all, upset, and Stan shushes him, stating that stress will make him chewy. Later, Stan complains about how nobody respects him to Shmebulock, who patiently listens to him and replies "Schembulock." Some gnomes are seen helping to build the Shacktron. After Bill destroys it, some of them are surrounded by Bill's henchmaniacs, and Teeth swallows Schembulock, but spits him when he's being sucked back to Nightmare Realm after Bill's defeat. In the end, a number of gnomes are shown among the creatures waving off Dipper and Mabel as they leave. Shmebulock also signed the letter for the twins.

Notable gnomesEdit

JeffEdit

Jeff is the leader of the gnomes. He wears a dark red hat, has a pink nose, brown eyebrows and a brown beard. His shirt/sleeves are an aqua color, and he wears dark blue pants as well as black shoes. Jeff is the smartest gnome, for he can speak more fluently than the others, and he also appears younger than the other gnomes, and may be the leader due to this. Jeff could also have the ability to communicate with animals, as he was also seen bathing in squirrels. He is also the gnome that proposes to Mabel. Seems to be the only gnome that is interested in Mabel. Without him the other gnomes don't know what to do. He plays his most antagonistic role to date in Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets, where he tricks Dipper and Mabel into retrieving the sacred Gemulets (which he calls "Gnome Gemulets" to make the twins believe they belonged to them) for him, only to become Dark Jeff and, thus, getting back his fellow gnomes' respect. It is hinted that the gnomes learned how to live without following his or anyone's rules in the meantime.

CarsonEdit

Carson is a gnome that operates Norman's right arm. He has a light blue shirt, blue pants, brown shoes, and a slightly maroon, pointy hat. He also has a gray beard, mustache, and eyebrows.

SteveEdit

Steve is a gnome who operates Norman's left arm. He wears blue pants, a turquoise shirt, a red hat, and brown shoes. His beard, mustache, and eyebrows are all white. He was the gnome who threw up rainbows when he got kicked by Mabel in "Tourist Trapped." He later appears in "Society of the Blind Eye," when Jeff and three other gnomes, including Steve, are stealing pie.

JasonEdit

Jason is a gnome who operates Norman's right leg. He wears a pointy, red hat, a turquoise shirt, and blue pants. He also has a white beard, mustache, and eyebrows.

ShmebulockEdit

Shmebulysses Q. Locke III, known more commonly as Shmebulock, is a wall-eyed gnome who operates Norman's left leg. He wears a pointy light red hat, a blue shirt and has a shaggy gray beard, mustache, buck teeth, and crooked gray eyebrows. He seems a bit absent minded and senile, however in Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets, it is revealed that he is actually quite intelligent but can not communicate his knowledge. Jeff often forgets his name.

In "Tourist Trapped", he tries to attack Mabel and Dipper while they're fleeing from the gnomes, but Dipper grabs him and smashes Shmebulock against the Mystery Cart's horn three times, then throws him to the side of the road. In the episode "Gideon Rises", he hands Jeff his cologne, and says "Shmebulock" when Jeff questions if the only thing he can say is his name; however, in "Tourist Trapped", he seems to be saying "Queen" like the others. He also knows at least how to write his name, as he signed the letter Wendy gave to Dipper at the end of "Weirdmageddon 3." His father is Shmebulock Senior, whom he looks almost exactly like.

Gravity Falls: Lost Legends reveals that Shmebulock is actually a very intelligent character, and that he had followed the Pines family around during the summer. He considers himself a fan of their adventures and is aware of the fourth wall. It's also explained in the beginning that, due to a curse cast by a dark warlock eons ago, he can only speak his "name", "Shmebulock"; once every thousand years, he is gifted by moonlight to speak normally. [6]

Shmebulock Senior Edit

S2e12 gnome catalog

Shmebulock Senior.

Shmebulock Senior was Shmebulock's father, who appeared in Ford's flashback where Ford was studying him and recording him into his journal in "A Tale of Two Stans." Ford also asked what his name was, and he answers, "Shmebulock, Senior.," showing that he can say the word "senior," not just "Shmebulock," opposed to his son. In "The Last Mabelcorn," it is revealed that Shmebulock Senior died, as the words "R.I.P. Shmebulock Sr." were seen carved into a tree. After Ford measured him, he wrote that gnomes are 10" tall in Journal 3.

In Gravity Falls: Journal 3 a cryptogram written by Shmebulock Senior shows us that he is very intelligent, but Ford seemed unable to decode what he wrote, as he calls it gibberish.

MikeEdit

Mike is a gnome who was told to watch his fingers when Jeff was climbing down the monster made out of gnomes.

AndyEdit

Andy is another gnome appearing in the episode "Tourist Trapped."

Unnamed fairy dust dealer Edit

S2e15 drug dealer gnome

The fairy dust dealer at Gnasty's tavern.

The fairy dust dealer is a gloomy looking gnome who appears in "The Last Mabelcorn." Wendy, Grenda and Candy meet him at Gnasty's gnome tavern when they're looking for a way to defeat Celestabellebethabelle. He tells them that fairy dust is the weakness of unicorns and offers to get them two bags of it in exchange for one bag of butterflies, whose traffic is forbidden in that part of the forest. He likes butterflies because they tickle his face and make him giggle. Later, during the trade, he's set up by the girls and the gnome police, and gets arrested.

GPD officers Edit

S2e15 Gnome GPD

The GPD gnomes arrest the dealer.

The Gnome Police Department is the gnome's armed law enforcement force. They wear blue uniforms, blue hats and vests with the yellow initials "GPD" on them. Their heads are shaved. They're armed with pine cones and have a deer equipped with a red beacon that they seem to use as a vehicle. The GPD has at least 5 officers, all seen in "The Last Mabelcorn" when the fairy dust dealer gets arrested. It seems there is corruption among its ranks, since the captain asked Grenda for his "cut" of fairy dust after the arrest.

S2e20 lights out

Unnamed gnome with brown beard and moustache Edit

He's one of the gnomes who take shelter in the Mystery Shack. He tells the other refugees to take "evasive maneuvers" and turn the lights off when an Eye-bat is passing by. He is later surrounded by Bill's henchmaniacs after the Shacktron is destroyed.

Craig Edit

Mentioned in Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets, he works in accounting.

Gnome King Edit

The Gnome King appeared in the original, non-canonic unaired pilot of the show, where he asked Dipper and Mabel a riddle at the end of the episode. The king wants to marry Mabel to fulfill an ancient prophecy. He is shown wearing a red cape, purple clothes, a purple cap, a crown, and holding a mushroom scepter. He also has a long, white beard, that he uses as another limb in order hover above the ground.

AppearanceEdit

The gnomes' character sheet.

Gnomes are shown to be very short creatures, around 3 feet tall. They usually wear red pointy hats, and all gnomes, including females and babies, have beards[2], which cover most of their bodies. Gnomes have large heads, pointy teeth, and short limbs. According to Journal 3, they are ten inches tall.

BehaviorEdit

Gnomes seem to be the least respected by other creatures given their short stature and cowardly nature, but they compensate for it with their teamwork. However, they can be somewhat egotistical and conceited, as Jeff was boasting about how dangerous they can be, even though he was easily dealt with by Dipper using a shovel in "Tourist Trapped."

Gnomes are social creatures and appear to have advanced social structures: they are ruled by a queen, they have criminal laws, a police force to enforce them and an "adorable owl" who acts as their judge.[7] They also have commercial establishments such as taverns.[7] They also seem capable of training animals and talking to them, given that Jeff trained squirrels to follow his commands and spoke to one by name[3] and that the tavern has "squirrel parking." They also use deer as police vehicles.[7] Gnomes can write, as evidenced by the inscriptions outside their tavern and on trees.

The gnome queen is normally a female gnome who is considered to be the "most beautiful." Once queen, she acts as a mediator, law enforcer[2] and spouse to the other gnomes[1]. Without a queen, gnomes tend to become more feral in behavior[2].

AbilitiesEdit

S1e1 gnome monster arms up

The giant gnome monster.

Gnomes can easily work together to form a single humanoid disguise like Norman, and even a giant, gnome-like monster. They can also use themselves as darts and arrows.

They are extremely weak against leaf blowers, as well as dog whistles due to their enhanced hearing, though they also seem unable to organize without a leader giving them commands. As shown in Journal 3, gnomes had no known weakness until Dipper wrote "leaf blowers" in the empty space.

TriviaEdit

  • The gnomes have a clear view of Northwest Manor.[8]
  • When Jeff says they want a new queen, all the gnomes, including Shmebulock, shout "queen."
  • Shmebulock appears in the Gravity Falls game, Mystery Shack Mystery, hidden behind the lamp stand in Dipper and Mabel's room. He stays in your inventory throughout the entire game and is absolutely useless.
  • The Gnomes star in the 3DS video game, Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets.
  • It is revealed in Gravity Falls: Legend of the Gnome Gemulets that Jeff is considering Pacifica Northwest to be the new queen of the gnomes. It is also revealed that Shmebulock doesn't mind being used as a punching bag.
  • In Journal 3, Ford claims that all gnomes, including females, have beards.[9] However, a female gnome lacking a beard is seen in "The Last Mabelcorn".

The gnomes in Star vs. the Forces of Evil ("Trial by Squire")

  • In the Star vs. the Forces of Evil episode "Trial by Squire", Quest Buy is shown to sell "happy gnomes" that look extremely similar to the gnomes from Gravity Falls.
  • Steve is most known as the Gnome who threw up rainbows which would later become a popular Meme on the Internet.
  • Alex Hirsch doesn't like it when people write Shmebulock's name with a 'c' between the letters 'S' and 'h', and compared it to triggering “the sound in [his] mind of cats scratching a chalkboard while Bjork screams at dolphins”.[10]
    • Although, it can be noted that Shmebulock spells his name with a 'c' on the note that Wendy gives Dipper at the end of "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back the Falls".
