In this week’s meeting I discuss the secrets revealed in Dipper’s Guide to the Unexplained #5: The Tooth!

Dipper’s Guide to the Unexplained is almost completely explained. In this fifth episode of the miniseries, they drop some major secrets – some that may even affect the future of the ENTIRE SERIES OF GRAVITY FALLS!
In Dipper’s Guide to the Unexplained #5, we learn quite a few secrets. In McGucket’s Son’s second speaking role, we now know that the small house at the edge of the lake that he works from is the same bait and tackle shop that we’ve seen in The Deep End.
We also learn in Dipper’s Guide to the Unexplained #5 that Mabel has taken on a performance role at the Mystery Shack – performing with her creepy childhood puppet, Bear-o. Bear-o is possibly inspired by Disney World’s Country Bear Jamboree, Showbiz Pizza Place’s Rock-A-Fire Explosion (specifically Billy Bob Broccoli), and the 80’s toy Teddy Ruxpin.
The Gravity Falls team also hid another secret message in this short. When the floating island head speaks, it sounds like gibberish – but it’s not. It’s talking backwards, and it says, “You have awakened my slumber. Enter my mouth, children. Enter your destiny.”
The final mind breaking secret in Dipper’s Guide to the Unexplained #5 The Tooth only came to my attention after I saw the unexplainable lobster that crawled across the beach. Lobsters don’t live in lakes, so the lobster was not placed there as a gag – it was a symbol.
The short directly references the Tarot’s Moon Card – a card that represents a difficult journey or a mystery that’s clouded in deceit. It can mean that you can’t trust what you’ve seen with your eyes, and that the challenges you face could be wrongly mistaken as good or evil. It can also mean that the players at hand are in front of a threshold, a gateway to their dangerous but destined path.
