- Sleeper Hit:
- Within one week of its released, Journal 3 made #1 on New York Times Bestseller list.
- The Special Edition sold out in just over two daysin fact, Amazon didn't cap it off at the 1,000 copies cut-off and ended up selling more pre-orders than the 1,000. Cue the fandom freaking out that some might not get their journals after all. Luckily a total of 10,000 were then made, so most everyone ended up getting it.
- What Could Have Been: An unused page of the Journal, recycled from an unused episode plot, detailed the events about a mysterious doll collector Dipper and Mabel run into while selling cruddy Stan merchandise door to door after he ordered too many bobbleheads. The doll collector wanted not just the bobbleheads, but Dipper and Mabel as dolls, and upon stepping inside, it's revealed she owns a Lil' Gideon doll that is actually Gideon turned into a doll. The doll collector is defeated, and Gideon is turned back to normal.
