It's one of my favorite episodes because when I got the reference to ABBA, I got excited as hell and realized I really want to talk with Dipper about... other "girly" retro bands he might be into and share some favorite music of mine. :P
I know it's rather a headcanon but it's first time I've seen my favorite character liking something what is important to me.
Muti Bear = Doc Oc from Spider-Man 2
^ little fun fact
Which is funny when you realise he is Dipper's spirit animal...
And instead of multiple arms he has multiple heads
Also says I accept my fate the same way
^Stuff like this is one of the many reasons why I love this show.
Dipper Vs Manliness Review
The moral/Dipper's development - Handling amazingly well. I know what he was going through. I loved when Dipper stood up for himself at the end as well. The moral works great as well and isn't done in an overly cheesy way.
Mabel's B Plot- Extremely entertaining and funny. Great bonding with her and Stan to. Makes perfect sense that Mabel would have a scrapbook.
The cold open - Puma or Panther Shirt?
Manatours - Strange and funny. Very creative as well like the gnomes. My favorite was the leader.
Multi Bear- A talking bear voiced by Doc Ock? I'm in!
Disco Girl - I want Jason Ritter to sing this and the lamby lamby dance.
Apology - I felt like Mabel and Stan should've apologized to Dipper for their teasing. Wasn't completely mean but they went a little bit to far. They probably apologized off screen though.
Short Montage - Good but to short.
In my opinion, this is the most underrated episode. 3.5/5
