CLICK THE FOLDER BELOW TO TAKE THIS WEEK’S CHALLENGE!
Brothers and Sisters, in this week’s episode I break down the fourth episode of Dipper’s Guide to the Unexplained, Anomaly #82 “Lefty”. In this short, Dipper investigates a suspicious man who only lets people see him from the left side. Though Mabel doesn’t believe Dipper when he thinks this is strange, he ultimately unmasks this odd gentleman as an automaton piloted by little green men!
Though little is known about these beings or their plans in Gravity Falls, whatever they were working on was dangerous and secret enough for them to destroy their robot and themselves in order to maintain its confidentiality.
Dipper’s Guide to the Unexplained #4 is the first time we see a few new locations. Namely, a two story mall, a grocery store, a well maintained park with a jogging run, and a bowling alley! This helps prove that the town of Gravity Falls isn’t a small and remote town, but a thriving isolated suburb!
Dipper’s Guide to the Unexplained #4 Lefty also touches on an odd and long-held societal belief. For much of human history, it was popular belief that there was something inherently evil about the left side of the body. This extrapolated to the fact that if you were caught being left hand dominant, then you could be branded as a criminal, burned as a witch, and even painfully reprogrammed to be right handed!
These beliefs remarkably lasted until 1970!
But what do you think? Will we see these little green men again? What were they doing in Gravity Falls? And will Dipper actually destroy the video tape evidence? Leave your theories and suggestions in the comments below!
