Hidden page

Shorts the hidden page

All of the six page sections from Dipper's Guide to the Unexplained put together.

At the end of every short there is a section of a page that is briefly flashed, revealing information like symbols and cryptograms. The sections merged makes one large symbol of an eye crossed out with a red X. This symbol is mentioned in a text about secret societies that Dipper was researching, alluding to the Blind Eye Society that appears in "Society of the Blind Eye."

Cryptograms

  • In "Candy Monster," the cryptogram says "IURP WKH ILUVW XQWLO WKH ODVW VHDUFK WKH." Once decoded, it reads, "FROM THE FIRST UNTIL THE LAST SEARCH THE."
  • In "Lefty," the cryptogram says "WKHP DOO ZHOFRPH WR JUDYLWB IDOOV." Once decoded, it reads, "THEM ALL WELCOME TO GRAVITY FALLS."
  • In "Tooth," the cryptogram says "FRGHV RI FUHGLWV SDVW RQH PHDQV RQH VR VHDUFK." Once decoded, it reads, "CODES OF CREDITS PAST ONE MEANS ONE SO SEARCH."

If arranged correctly and read left-to-right, the cryptograms read "FROM THE FIRST UNTIL THE LAST SEARCH THE CODES OF CREDITS PAST ONE MEANS ONE SO SEARCH THEM ALL WELCOME TO GRAVITY FALLS." This is a hint on how to solve the codes in red.

Codes in red

There is a code used in the red numbers on each page. It can be translated by using the number in front of a right parentheses to indicate the Gravity Falls episode number and the numbers that follow it to indicate the letter number of the episode's decoded credits cryptogram. Brackets indicate the beginning and end of words.

Short Code Decoded
Candy Monster [13) 8,9,10] [14,17,22 THE DAR
Stan's Tattoo [1)14] [2)5,24 3)3] [5)7,9] I WAS SO

The Hide-Behind 11)4,12,13] [12)8,9][17,13] IED TO ME

Decoded and properly combined, the message is: "I WAS SO BLIND. HE LIED TO ME. THE DARKNESS IS NEAR."

Trivia

  • There was going to be a short where Mabel visited the prison titled, "Mabel's Guide to Smiles", in which she attempts to cheer some prisoners up. However this ended up being cut.[12]
  • There was also going to be a short entitled, "Mabel's Guide To Death", in which Mabel would show how to deal with the effects of someone or something you know dying, after her pet caterpillar gets eaten. This ended up being cut for being too morbid, however.
