Wheel of Secrets

Facts revealed:

  • Blood or Jam?: In "Tourist Trapped," it is jam on Norman's face. The previous gnome queen had recently died, and as part of her funeral ceremony the gnomes ate bereavement jam.
  • The Bear Bear: The original name for the Multi-Bear, specifically so that Dipper could say "There, there, Bear Bear."
  • Blendin's hair: Blendin is bald because his constant time traveling causes his hair to catch on fire.
  • McGucket's songs: in "The Legend of the Gobblewonker," a song was written for McGucket to sing about the Gobblewonker. The song was cut due to being too long and McGucket being "a terrible singer."
  • Stan's science fair project in "A Tale of Two Stans" is a football robot call "Footbot," which is a dream he has had for a very long time.

There were several topics on the wheel that were not discussed:


Production Notes

Character Revelations

  • Priscilla Northwest was Miss Mudflap ~1985. This was how Preston met her.
  • The writing team considered revealing that Gideon Gleeful's big hair concealed his malformed twin, but that idea was shelved.
  • Bill Cipher was originally going to be green, but they thought it looked too much like a leaf.
    • Time Baby commented that he now looks like a nacho, alluding to the common fan joke that Bill resembles a Dorito.
  • Time Baby has no object permanence.
  • There is a resemblance in Dipper and Mabel's name. This was later fully revealed in the real life Journal 3, when Dipper's real name was mentioned.


  • Clips from almost every episode are used.
  • The Zodiac was shown again which was from "The Last Mabelcorn."
  • Secrets and Ciphers throughout the series are pointed out and discussed.
