"Creature in the Closet" is a short featuring Dipper's and Mabel's documentation of their encounter with thing 26. Throughout the video log, Dipper describes the creature and tries to lure it out of the closet, while Mabel, dubious that the paranormal beast is anything more than an "adorable" possum, hinders her brother's attempts.

Sheriff Blubs is seen breaking into the Gravity Falls Gossiper to interrogate Toby Determined, teasing Old Man McGucket, and giving Deputy Durland a high-five, and he is said to keep watch.

Several trailers were made to promote the move and Gravity Falls in general, taking note of the mysteries involved in the show.
