Buddy "Bud" Gleeful is a recurring character in Gravity Falls. He is the father of Li'l Gideon and an employee at the Tent of Telepathy. He owns a factory that makes Li'l Gideon merchandise in addition to selling used cars.

Background

Personality

Unlike his son, Bud is very polite, kind, and friendly. He usually sides with Gideon and gives him whatever he wants. It is hinted that Bud could be scared of his amulet, as this was most noticed when Gideon was ruining his room with the amulet's power.

Physical appearance

Bud Gleeful is a large, slightly portly man with long sideburns going down his face. He has a Southern accent and wears a salmon, flower button up shirt along with a straw hat on his head. His eyebrows appear to be very bushy.

Role in the series

Bud first appears in "The Hand That Rocks the Mabel" promoting the Tent of Telepathy in a commercial. Stan meets Bud when he goes to Gideon's home, to stop Mabel from interacting with his child. Bud is very friendly towards him, and shares a cup of coffee. Bud proposes that they merge their businesses and monopolize the entertainment sector if Mabel were to marry Gideon. However, this plan fails when Mabel breaks up with Gideon. Bud sides with Gideon in the ensuing argument, causing Stan to steal one of their paintings and run away despite his yells of protest.

In "Little Dipper", it is revealed Bud sells used cars, although most of the vehicles are worn out. While Bud's wife seems to be terrified by her own son, Bud thinks otherwise, even though Gideon often manipulates his father (in addition to verbally abusing him). When Gideon's plan to take over the Mystery Shack failed, Bud tells his son he'll get his revenge on the Pines family one day, but Gideon angrily tells him it's not just about revenge; he wants the Shack to find a hidden secret.

S1e20 Goodbye

In "Dreamscaperers", he destroys the Mystery Shack with a wrecking ball on his son's orders.

Bud is quoted on the newspaper heralding Gideon's arrest, "He [Gideon] could use a time out!", giving the implication that he has grown tired of his son's apparent psychosis.

Trivia

  • Bud Gleeful did Gideon's commercial for the Tent of Telepathy.
