Trivia[]

  • The film about Quentin Trembley states he was elected in 1837 as the 8½th president of the United States, but there were no presidential elections in 1837. In 1840, Trembley's alleged replacement William H. Harrison (who had lost in 1836) defeated then-President Martin Van Buren's bid for reelection and became the ninth President of the United States.
  • The credits cipher from "Weirdmageddon Part 1," says that Time Baby's particles will take 1000 years to reform, and, because the show takes place in 2012, this would happen in 3012, the same year predicted by the mailbox as the end of the world. Also, in "The Time Traveler's Pig" episode Dipper and Mabel travel in the future and they see Time Baby destroying the world. Mabel states that the future looks awesome.
  • "Blendin's Game" takes place on July 13th, Soos' birthday, in the series, but in Journal 3 the events of this episode are said to happen sometime between July 23rd and August 22nd.
  • Dipper and Mabel have raced against a space lizard somewhere in their three months staying at Gravity Falls. It is unknown when this event actually took place.
