So Lebam, simple animation error or deep seated conspiracy of the highest order? A big component of the theory is Lebam being mentioned by name in a bottle in episode 15, The Deep End. This magical bottle made some people believers because instead of the letters being backwards like a reflection, they were facing forward. What you never see people discuss is that there were, in fact, three, of these Lebam bottles.
As you can see above, all the bottles came out behind one another. If you look at the animated gif, you can see one of the Mabel bottles turns into Lebam when it hits the water then back into Mabel when it surfaces. Why? Simple. An animation error. All the bottles that say Mabel face left and the ones that say Lebam face right. When the one bottle hits the water, it goes left/right/left and switches because of it.
Similarly, you can account for all the other “evidence” that hints at Lebam. The photo, Zach, the beard hair (seriously?), all the non-mirrored objects, etc. Now, you are free to craft your own opinions and theories but please, make sure you have all the evidence to make an informed decision.
All these theories and conspiracies are a great way to get fans involved with the show and have them rewatch and looking for clues to solve “The Mystery of Gravity Falls” (hey, look at that!) which is great. Some theories can end up taking mistakes as factual. And the more people believe a mistake is real, the more problems it’s going to create and hamper real discussion.
As with any show, there will be mistakes. The most noticed one is that Dipper had Book 2 instead of Book 3 in episode 4, The Hand That Rocks the Mabel. Now, while Hirsch ended up firing the country of Korea (both of them) as a result of this mixup, it is still possible that the new residents of Korea are still prone to mistakes.
And with that, this concludes our first, and hopefully last, look into debunking the implausible theories of Gravity Falls.
P.S. - Stop making videos with hyped titles used only to falsely lure in viewers when the content reveals nothing other then rehashed conjecture. Same for using the word leak incorrectly. Thanks.
