  • Hey, you recently reverted some edits about when Headhunters takes place saying that the moon they drew was waning, but looking at the shot (about 5:40 into the episode, in the shot below) I'd say it's nearly full, which actually fits with the Waxing Gibbous moon on Saturday, June 2, and I think lines up better with the timeline, so I'm going to update it to reflect that.

    • We don't know if this takes place in 2012 as far as I know. Also, there is a shot when dipper is fighting Sherlock that there is a waning moon.

    • Honestly I think you are thinking too hard about this and giving the animators too much credit. Is there any evidence that this show takes place in 2012?

    • Here is when Dipper is fighting Sherlock. You cannot tell anything from the moon and you are making assumptions about when the series takes place. Sorry.File:S1e3 moon dipper sherlock fight.png

      Actually, yes. This image from Summerween shows the month of June, which matches the Sun-Sat alignment of June 2012, and while it would also match for 2001 and 2007, but neither fits due to the technology depicted, the cell phones in particular, and Alex Hirsch has also made comments that the show does take place in 2012. Given the show's efforts to maintain continuity, I'm inclined to think they have (most) of this planned out to some degree, although the waning moon (depicted in a way that doesn't acually occur in nature) does indicate they either make mistakes or don't have things planned out, but given that Sherlock couldn't be moving around if it really was waning and it's background depiction instead of the establishing shot of the first moon, I'd call it an error.

    • Yes, thank you Comics0026, I'm not the only one!

    • If you can show that Alex Hirsch said that it takes place in 2012, I'd be inclined to believe you and the whole Timeline page. I did not see it on his Twitter anywhere

    • Well, I'm sure as soon as he gets done telling people that Boss Mabel isn't coming until at least next month, he'll answer me.
