Little Green Men in the Lefty Robot

During the short "Lefty" of Dipper's Guide to the Unexplained, they control the Lefty robot, so it can only be seen from the left side so no one would find out about them. During the third test, when Dipper tries to see the Lefty Robot's right side, he finds the little men controlling it.

Upon discovery, they swallow small, glowing, red cubic pills, while yeling "the time has come!" They subsequently collapse one by one and vanish in flashes of red light. One of them says that he can't fulfill the pact because "[he has] a family", to which his partner replies "you took the oath!" They then swallow the red cubes, fall out of the robot and disappear. The robot then self-destructs.
