  • Welcome brothers and sisters to this week's meeting of the Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel.

  • A secret society dedicated to discovering, decoding, and protecting the secrets of Gravity

  • Falls. I am this chapters founder and duly appointed High Exhaulted Big Fish, Douglas

  • Mackrell. As always, if you would like to see the minutes of last week's meeting you

  • can click red link on the screen. And now for this week's order of business: The Mystery

  • of Soos!

  • Before we start investigating what we know of Soos from the show, it's important to know

  • his true origin. Alex Hirsch explained in his now famous AMA on Reddit, that Soos is

  • directly based off his old college buddy Jesus Chambrot from CalArts. No one could figure

  • out his real age, which became even more confusing when he revealed that he was nearly bald when

  • he finally removed the baseball cap he always wore. Out of respect for the man, no one ever

  • asked Jesus how old he was, but the mystery behind Jesus (as well as his friendship) was

  • more than enough inspiration to incorporate him into Gravity Falls.

  • So now that we know who Soos is based on, what's his character like? Soos is a chubby

  • hamster-like man of childish hyperbole who relishes being a part of the action. He's

  • naively dedicated to his job, and as such - Grunkle Stan constantly takes advantage

  • of him. Soos is also a good listener. A quality that allows him to freely interact on the

  • same level of whomever he interacts with regardless of their age or social standing.

  • Soos is also a man who can easily be mistaken for being unintelligent - but that's far from

  • the case. He's shown repeatedly in the show that he has a basic understanding of mechanics

  • and construction, as he's in charge of temporary fixes for the Mystery Shack's many flaws.

  • He's constantly trying to better himself and even teaches himself new skills through trial

  • and error, like when he worked as the DJ for Grunkle Stan's Teen Party in Double Dipper.

  • As far as we know, Soos has been a lifetime resident of Gravity Falls. He was raised by

  • his grandmother, whom he still lives with. There's been absolutely no mention of his

  • direct parents, so it's unclear if they are dead or just missing. Since it quickly was

  • shown how little money they had after Gideon seized the Mystery Shack - it's safe to assume

  • that Soos's paycheck from the Mystery Shack is their only source of income.

  • As we've seen from pictures around Soos's house, he led an active and well documented

  • childhood. He had a vivid imagination which he still has to this present day. At one point

  • he trained in Karate or at least had a sweet karate costume - but what we concretely know

  • about his formative childhood years is that he spent a lot of time in Gravity Falls' arcade.

  • From an amazing episode of the Gravity Falls Gossiper podcast - which you can find a link

  • to in the About section below - Grunkle Stan confesses that Soos started working in the

  • Mystery Shack when he was 12 years old - which is right around the same time Stan launched

  • the Mystery Shack as a business. Soos was his first employee who responded to his ad

  • in the local paper looking for a kid who doesn't ask a lot of questions and doesn't need a

  • lot of money.

  • Soos is one of the few residents in Gravity Falls who actually notices the odd and paranormal

  • things around him. Which makes him a constant ally for Dipper and Mabel - as he never questions

  • any of their claims, no matter how outlandish. He also aids in their adventures - lending

  • them weaponry, muscle, transportation, or phat beats for freestyle raps when the need

  • arises. He's essentially a peer to Dipper and Mabel with the added bonus of having access

  • to all the things adults can do.

  • As for rumors about Soos, there are a few major ones - such as Soos being a bigfoot.

  • Although he does strike the classic bigfoot pose in the Legend of the Gobblewonker, and

  • there is a flash of what could possibly be a bigfoot in the opening credits - this seems

  • the most unlikely. Though Soos is fairly tall, there isn't any evidence to link him with

  • being the mythical beast. Plus Soos has very tiny feet. You can't be a Bigfoot with tiny

  • feet!

  • Another popular theory is that Soos either knows the future or is slightly psychic. There

  • are quite a few instances where Soos seems to know exactly what is about to happen. Being

  • in the right place at the right time, under reacting to scary paranormal instances, or

  • even plainly telling characters what will happen - much like he did with Grunkle Stan

  • in the episode The Time Traveler's Pig.

  • Being from the future or having psychic powers might account for Soos' knowledge of future

  • events, but another possible theory fans suggest - is that Soos is a part of the mysterious

  • and sinister secret society that's connected to the image revealed at the end of Dipper's

  • Guide to the Unexplained. This also seems unlikely, as Soos doesn't outwardly appear

  • to have any ulterior motives - but since we don't know much about this "blind eye" society,

  • anything is possible at this stage.

  • It's also important to note that Soos may have been mentioned in a secret code in the

  • game Rumbles Revenge. The code says "The Handyman knows more than you think." This could be

  • a reference to Old Man McGuckett, but Soos is referenced to as a handyman directly. Plus

  • Bill Cipher commented directly on how secretly clever Soos was.

  • What's important to remember about Soos is that he defends the Shack just as much as

  • Stan does. It's uncertain if Soos knows every secret about the shack - but it's clear that

  • he has a deep affection for the business and everyone in it. He respects it. And ultimately

  • Soos thinks of Grunkle Stan as a father figure - hoping to someday inherit and run the Mystery

  • Shack business.

  • But what do you think? Is Soos the mysterious handyman that knows more than he seems? What

  • happend to Soos's parents? Does Soos know all of the secrets of the Mystery Shack? Leave

  • your theories and suggestions in the comments below! And now before we close this week's

  • meeting, I have one last order of business!

  • It's time for this week's challenge, and this is an important one. I've decided that as

  • a proper secret society, all of our members should be keeping their own journals. So,

  • if you can decode and answer all three of this challenge's riddles, you'll receive my

  • private notes on Soos for the first page of your journal! Simply print the page out, punch

  • some holes in it, and add it to a three ring binder - making sure to add some blank pages

  • for notes of your own!

  • With no other orders of business, I hereby call a close to this week's meeting of the

  • Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel. Until next time, share, subscribe, and keep cracking

  • those codes!

  • Soos may act childish, but he will drop this act when he needs to take on adult responsibilities.

  • Like when he helps Mabel and Dipper escape the Gobblewonker by picking them up, or when

  • he takes on new jobs after the Mystery Shack is taken over by Gideon so he can support

  • his family.

Welcome brothers and sisters to this week's meeting of the Royal Order of the Holy Mackerel.
