Gompers[3][4] is a goat who lives near the Mystery Shack.


Season 1[]

S1e1 mabel laughing

Gompers first appears in "Tourist Trapped" standing on Dipper's bed and chewing on Mabel's sweater. In the forest, when Dipper discovers the Journal 3 after he lifts some buttons from a machine in a fake tree, the ground where Gompers eats grass opens, making the goat run away; he[5] later nibbles on the spine of the journal behind Dipper's back. At the end of the episode, he picks up a trapped gnome in his mouth and runs off with him.

Gompers next appears in "Headhunters" outside the Mystery Shack several times during the time of the "murder" of a wax figure of Stan Pines. Gompers is also mentioned to be the culprit behind the disappearance of the Pines family's tin cans.

Gompers is seen on the roof of the Mystery Shack in "The Inconveniencing."

S1e8 wedding

Gompers watches a wedding ceremony during Pioneer Day in "Irrational Treasure."

In "Boss Mabel," Gompers is seen outside of the Mystery Shack when a busload of tourists arrives. Gompers is also seen in the end credits of the same episode where Stan is being lazy and dancing at the same time, where the goat attempts to steal Stan's fez, which they have a tug-o-war over.

In "Bottomless Pit!," Gompers appears after Dipper, Mabel, Soos Ramirez, and Stan fall down the bottomless pit, and after they come out.

S1e16 excessive partying

Gompers is also seen twice in "Carpet Diem," once outside at night, and once in the attic eating leftover pizza.

In "Boyz Crazy," Gompers chews off Ergman Bratsman's license plate, which Soos praises the goat for; this later gets Bratsman arrested.

In "Land Before Swine," Gompers is seen eating grass and looking at Stan drive by, giving a tour of the Mystery Shack grounds.  

In "Gideon Rises," Gompers is seen chewing on the fallen "S" of the Mystery Shack's sign.

Season 2[]

In "Scary-oke," Gompers appears on the Mystery Shack's roof sign.

S2e6 gompers chew

Gompers chews on Waddles' pillow.

In "Little Gift Shop of Horrors," Gompers appears in one of Stan's stories and gets shooed away by Waddles for attempting to eat the pillow on his seat.

When Dipper and Mabel travel ten years before the current day in "Blendin's Game," a young Gompers is seen outside the Mystery Shack.

In "The Love God," it is revealed that Gompers and Waddles have gotten married, thanks to Mabel's matchmaking abilities. As both Gompers and Waddles have been referred to canonically as male, this would make them Gravity Falls' first and only same-sex "married" couple.

In "Northwest Mansion Mystery," Gompers is seen chewing on a piece of red cloth at Northwest Fest.

In "Not What He Seems," during the first anomaly occurrence, Gompers is seen rising from the ground because of the change in gravity.

In "A Tale of Two Stans," Ford Pines feeds Agent Trigger's flash drive to Gompers.

In "Dungeons, Dungeons, and More Dungeons," Dipper plays Dungeons, Dungeons, and More Dungeons with Gompers, who tries to eat Dipper's thirty-eight sided die.

S2e18 a giant gompers

Giant Gompers chewing the prison.

In "Weirdmageddon Part 1," Gompers begins to chew on Stan's hat, causing Stan to threaten Gompers off the property until he is turned into a giant by a weirdness wave. He then goes off to eat a part of the Gravity Falls Maximum Security Prison that was holding Gideon Gleeful, freeing him and his fellow inmates.

The still-giant Gompers makes brief appearances in "Weirdmageddon 2: Escape from Reality".

In "Weirdmageddon 3: Take Back The Falls," Gompers is seen at the ending of Weirdmageddon, near the Mystery Shack after he is returned to his former size.


Gompers has a dull brown coat, a white stomach, and a dark brown spot on his lower back. He has yellow eyes with horizontal irises. Half of his left horn is missing. He also has a short, pale gray bushy tail and dark brown hooves.
