Royal MEETING 1 copy

Welcome brothers and sisters to the first meeting of the Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel!

This week’s order of business: Grunkle Stan’s Fez!

New members are always welcome!

As regular Gravity Falls watchers know, the symbol on Grunkle Stan’s fez changes slightly between the episodes Boss Mabel and Bottomless Pit. The change comes after a short hiatus of the show, and could easily be chalked up to both physical damage to the fez itself and a revamping of the show’s design post hiatus – but I believe there’s more to it than that.

The symbol directly connects to the name of the secret society Stan is a part of – The Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel. It’s clearly a fish with an enormous mouth that’s about to eat something.

Is this change of symbols a reflection of the advancement of the coming apocalypse they talk about in Gravity Falls? Is this change of symbol because of a raise of rank within the Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel? What is that fish about to eat in the second symbol?

Leave your theories and suggestions in the comments below!

  1. Hey, I never notice you talk about roby’s young appearance and the younger him in love god as mabel looks at the pictures of him through the years.

    ——- Also note, for your analysis of love god as mable and dipper are runing to robby and after mable says look it turns to a hill wear they’re sitting. but just before they’re zoomed in on, the a picture shows other people being there and one of them is that guy that got “matched” with the lady as mable sees the love god’s magic in action at the diner, but hes alone.

    We know that shermy was about 16 when Ford went in the portal, then the 30 years passed. So that would place shermy’s age around 46 because 16+30=46. Then you take dipper and Mabel’s age, 13 and subtract it from 46 and you get that shermy was around 33 years old when dipper and mabel where born. You forgot about shermy’s age of about 16 when Ford got pushed in the portal. If you did what you are implying it would mean that shermy was 1 when Ford went into the portal.

    my point exactly, he’s supposed to be their GRANDFATHER, how many 33year old grandfathers do you know that weren’t teen parents or who’s children were teen parents. dipper and mable’s parents need to have been born by the time ford gets knocked into the portal, if shermy is both 16 and a father at that point in time then this show has balls, most kid’s show wouldn’t have teen parents, esp~ when the legal age in the US is 18.
    at the start of the episode stan clearly states dipper and mable are shermy’s grandkids, if they were his KIDS i wouldn’t have an issue.

    but if he’s 33 when dipper and mable are born he’s not old enough to be their GRANDFATHER. that’s my point. he’s not old enough to be their grandfather unless both he and his child were teen parents. and i mentioned in my question that he would have been 16 at the oldest when ford went into the portal, just so you know.
