It’s the very first Far Out Theory Friday! A new casual series designed to showcase my wierd theories and fan theories from around the web! Today’s episode: The true identity of Gompers The Goat!
Welcome to Far Out Theory Friday! The new casual show dedicated to short and odd theories about Gravity Falls. Over the coming weeks I hope to highlight some of my own strange theories as well as yours! Be sure to write me with theories you’d like to see showcased on FOTF!
In my very first episode of Far Out Theory Friday, I explain my theory about Gompers The Goat. A mysterious animal that lives around the Mystery Shack and seems to come and go as it pleases. Between Gompers’ odd ability to always be around whenever something strange happens at the shack, and his elongated rectangular pupils, many fans have guessed that Gompers is somehow connected to Bill Cipher, or has another demon from Bill Cipher’s dimension inside him!
I feel that is not the case. Since we know that Stanley Pines is connected to the glasses, that frees up the Fez symbol. And since we know that Gompers The Goat’s favorite color is burgundy – we can make the connection between Gompers and the only burgundy item we’ve seen in the Mystery Shack… The Fez!
This could mean that Gompers The Goat is, in fact, Shermy Pines. Since the effects of the Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel in the Mystery Shack theoretically belong to Shermy, then that means that his mind may be stuck inside Gompers!
Sound off below with your theory! Is Gompers The Goat, Shermy Pines? Is he Bill Cipher or some sort of demon? Or perhaps he’s something else!? Let us know in the comments below!
