The Mystery Shack deed is the deed to the Mystery Shack, which was successfully stolen by Gideon Gleeful in "Dreamscaperers." It officially declares the shack to be the legal property of Stanford Pines, whose identity was later taken by his twin brother, Stanley Pines.


S1e19 Stan placing the deed

Stan placing the deed.

Long before the events of "Dreamscaperers," Stan placed the deed of the Shack inside a safe in his office. Gideon, knowing very well of this, attempts countless times to try and steal the deed. Most notably, in "Little Dipper," he mentions it when he tries to threaten Stan into giving him the deed with Cursed Egyptian super termites.

S1e19 Giedon has won the Shack

Gideon steals the Deed.

The deed is seen again in "Dreamscaperers," when Gideon tries to steal it from the safe in Stan's office. Stan stops him, places the deed back in the safe, and locks it. This forces Gideon to summon Bill Cipher, whom he then commands to go inside Stan's mind to find the memory of him imputing the combination to the safe. After hearing this, Mabel, Dipper, and Soos band together in order to stop Bill. When Gideon witnesses Bill's failure he has no other choice but to resort to "Plan B," the use of dynamite, which he employs to break into the safe and steal the deed.

S1e20 stan gets the shack back

Stan regains the deed.

In "Gideon Rises," the deed is in Gideon's possession, who now claims that Stan has given it to him, and thus, according to the Finders Keepers Law, this makes him the owner of the Mystery Shack.[1] Stan, Mabel and Dipper try to tell the citizens of the town that Gideon is lying and that he should be arrested, but Gideon has his thugs remove them from the Shack's grounds. Far later in the episode, Gideon is defeated, but before he is sent to prison, Stan shakes him, making the deed and other objects fall out of his pockets. He then picks up the deed and steals Journal 2 at the same time. After regaining possession of his property, he announces that the Mystery Shack is back in business.   

Legal value[]

The Gravity Falls "Finders Keepers" law allows whoever holds a physical deed to own that property. This law was created by Quentin Trembley as an experiment to create a new form of government called "GimmieOcracy."[1]

The Mystery Shack deed looks like any ordinary deed. It has the address, 618 Gopher Road, in the top center above the word "DEED" (which is written in larger letters than the rest of the text). It then has the signature "Stanford Pines" written below the lines, "Property Belongs To." It also has a blue ribbon on the bottom right corner, with a red stamp on top marked with an "S," which presumably stands for Stanford.
