Episode Summary


Dipper and Mabel enlist Soos to help them prove a lake monster is real.

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • Dipper and Mabel enlist Soos to help them prove a lake monster is real.

    This episode is almost excellent and it's not as awesome as the first episode. For the story, it's not the best, but it's good. Some of the funny moments are flashback at the cold open, Old Man McGrucket's appearance in the episode, Mabel imagining herself when she gets rich, the gang breaking/throwing the cameras on accident, Stan telling a couple a joke about marriage, "butt island" (I don't mind butt jokes usually as long as they don't get overused), Dipper's imagine spot at the end when Mabel appears, the gang running to the glass, and the last part of the episode. It was creepy that the monster of the lake turns out to be a machine controlled by Old Man McGrucket because he wanted some attention. Still, Old Man McGrucket is a funny, but weird character. The animation is awesome as in the first episode. My only flaw was how Stan being a bit of a jerk in few scenes. All in all, an almost perfect episode.
