Signature

Blendin Blandin is a time traveler from the year 207̃012 (pronounced twenty-sñeventy-twelve) who was sent back in time to Gravity Falls to remove a set of two time anomalies, although he didn't realize that it was actually Dipper and Mabel, instead of actual objects. Because he accidentally lost track of his measuring tape, which Mabel and Dipper borrowed, he was forced to remove the time anomalies that the twins left. He appeared in the episode "The Time Traveler's Pig".

History

S1e2 mystery man

Blendin's cameo in The Legend of the Gobblewonker.

He is first seen in "Tourist Trapped," picking up Mabel's flower hair clip in the bushes when Dipper and Mabel are being attacked by the gnomes.[4]

Later, in "The Legend of the Gobblewonker," he is seen picking up a calculator when Old Man McGucket is screaming and claiming that he saw The Gobblewonker.[5]

He appears again in "Headhunters," standing behind the crowd when Stan Pines unveils his wax figure. When Old Man McGucket asks his question, Blendin picks up Dipper's shoe and quickly runs off. A photo of him can be seen on Dipper's list of suspects, though he is not visited by the twins.

S1e9 blandin time traveling

Blendin time travels in front of Dipper and Mabel.

His identity is revealed in "The Time Traveler's Pig," where he was assigned to prevent several anomalies from occurring during the Mystery Fair. While he goes on a ride, Dipper and Mabel steal his time machine and cause the anomalies he was looking for. Blendin then gets arrested by the Time Paradox Avoidance Enforcement Squadron for violating the "Time Traveler's Code of Conduct." He swears revenge on Dipper and Mabel for stealing his time machine by going back in time and preventing their parents from ever meeting. However, his plot must have failed because the twins were still there, unless he created a second (or really, his first) time paradox. Later, the Time Baby, the presumable leader of the Time Paradox Avoidance Enforcement Squadron, forces him to clean up the past.

He appears again in "Gideon Rises," right before Stan appears to tell the townspeople that Gideon has been running a scam.

Personality

S1e9 twins confronting blandin

Blendin is nervous as Dipper and Mabel will confront him.

Blendin is cautious and timid. He tries to hide his identity as a time traveler, however, he gives away his position when Dipper and Mabel approach him. Blendin reacts in a way that made him look suspicious, he then tries to escape although his time machine was not able to work. When he becomes nervous he sweats and he feels like he needs to confess something and also acts in a suspicious way. Around the end of "The Time Traveler's Pig," he turns from frightened and clumsy to angry and malevolent after the Time Paradox Avoidance Enforcement Squadron arrests him and Blendin swore revenge on the twins, threatening to make sure their parents never meet.

Appearance

Blendin Blandin

Blendin Blandin is a heavyset, light-skinned, bald man. He wears gray and cream goggles and a gray jacket, with simple white shoes. The jacket seems to have a form of camouflage that is controlled by a watch-like device worn on his left wrist. The wrist-worn device seems to be extra glitchy as it malfunctions most of the time, prompting him to steal Grunkle Stan's red screwdriver. On his tool belt, he has a time machine, a device similar in design to a tape measure. It is operated by pulling the tab out to a certain length that corresponds to a certain period of time. There are also two buttons to choose to go in the "past" or "future.

Trivia

  • His name combines the words "blend in" and "bland," as in, dull and unnoticeable.
  • Him stealing Stan's screwdriver and using it to fix his watch is likely a reference to the sonic screwdriver in Doctor Who, a popular British science-fiction television show about time travel.
  • He is set to return in Season 2. [6]
