Blendin Blandin is a time traveler from the year 207̃012 (pronounced twenty-sñeventy-twelve) who was sent back to the time of the events of Gravity Falls to remove a set of time anomalies.
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. Later, he is seen picking up a calculator, when Old Man McGucket is screaming that he saw The Gobblewonker. He appears again in Headhunters, standing behind the crowd when Grunkle Stan unveils his wax figure. When Old Man McGucket is asking his question, Blendin picks up a shoe and runs off. A photo of him can be seen on Dipper's list of suspects, though he is not visited by the twins. In these past episodes, his appearance grew a lot of attention towards the fans.
His identity is revealed in "The Time Traveler's Pig." He was assigned to prevent several anomalies from occurring during the Mystery Fair. While riding on a ride, Dipper and Mabel steal his time machine and cause the anomalies he was looking for. Blendin 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 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.
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.
Blendin Blandin is a heavyset, light-skinned bald man. He wears gray and cream goggles and a gray jacket . The jacket seems to have a form of camouflage that is controlled by a watch-like device worn on his 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. He also has five fingers, unlike some characters. 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.

"AH! My position has been compromised! Assuming stealth mode! Color match. Initiating color match. Come on, dang it!"
"Uh, no! Who told you that?! Memory wipe! (throws baby wipe)"
"You shut your time mouth!"
"Do you have any idea how many rules you just broke? I'm asking, I wasn't there with you. It must have been a lot, right?"
