Star

Waddles is Mabel's pet pig, who she won at the Mystery Fair in "The Time Traveler's Pig" by guessing his correct weight of fifteen pounds.

History

Waddles' first appearance is with Mabel in the opening credits, in which Mabel is hugging him.

His official series debut is in "The Time Traveler's Pig," where Mabel wins him in a "Guess the Critter's Weight" game who is, of course, run by a carny. She looks at the animals, until one pig oinks, which she interprets as him saying either "Mabel" or maybe "Doorbell". Taking this as a sign, Mabel asks the host of the game to let her guess the pig's weight. He tells her its name, "15-Poundie," giving her the answer to its weight. As the pig's name is "15-Poundie," Mabel guesses correctly that it weighs 15 pounds. She takes the pig, renames it Waddles, and quickly forms a great friendship with it.

Mabel and Waddles share a slice of pizza.

The bond between Mabel and Waddles is strengthened each time the twins travel through time, as they do things such as sharing pizza's, and taking photographs in photo booths, This Results into her spiraling into depression when she loses him to Pacifica Northwest in the only successful Dipper timeline. After realizing how much Waddles means to her, Dipper goes back in time and sacrifices his chance with Wendy, allowing Mabel to re-win Waddles. To show her appreciation, Mabel sends Waddles to retrieve the caramel apple Robbie is sharing with his new girlfriend, Wendy. This startles Robbie, causing him to drop the apple and knock over a barrel of hot water, painfully shrinking his pants.

In "Fight Fighters," Waddles sits next to Mabel as she plays a card game with Grunkle Stan and before the fight asks if they want her to send Waddles on Robbie again, referring to "The Time Traveler's Pig". He is also there when Mabel watches Grunkle Stan while he watches TV. At another point he sits next to Mabel at the table while Dipper worriedly paces about his upcoming fight with Robbie.

One of the pictures of Waddles shown in the end credits of Summerween.

In "Summerween," Waddles stays at the Mystery Shack instead of going trick-or-treating with Mabel, Candy Chiu, and Grenda. His Summerween costume is a suit.

Grunkle Stan later uses Waddles in attempting to scare off two kids, and Made it look like Waddles was coming out of his stomach. At the end of the episode, Waddles eats the bag of candy Stan received while everyone else watches a horror movie for the remainder of the night.

Grenda, Candy, and Mabel are later seen taking pictures of Waddles and adding captions, similar to internet memes such as the "lolcat."

In "Boss Mabel," Waddles is first seen watching Cash Wheel with Dipper, Mabel, and Grunkle Stan while eating Chipackerz. When Mabel becomes the boss of the Mystery Shack, she makes Waddles her secretary. Near the end of the episode, Mabel asks Waddles for his opinion on Stan's apology song. Waddles Reets, and Mabel declares take thirty.

In "Bottomless Pit!," Waddles is first seen in Dipper's story, "Voice Over." Mabel, Wendy and Soos play a variant of spin the bottle called "Spin the Pig", in which they spin Waddles and whomever he lands on must kiss him. He is later seen in Mabel's story, "Trooth Ache," when Mabel askes Waddles for advice, and then pretends like Waddles is answering.

In "Carpet Diem," Waddles is shown squirming on the carpet and when Soos pats his head, they switch bodies. When this happens, Soos leaves the Mystery Shack on an "adventure" while Waddles walks around the Mystery Shack looking for things to eat. Eventually Waddles ends up in the gift shop, and starts chewing on some clothes. When Wendy walks in and sees Waddles (whom she mistakes as Soos obviously since Waddles is in Soos' body) she leaves, and next Grunkle Stan walks in. After explaining that Stan needs to cut Soos' pay, Waddles puts his hand on Stan's nose and starts disturbing him. Eventually Stan gives in, and gives Soos a raise instead. Later in the episode, Soos and Waddles get back into their own bodies.

Waddles is seen briefly in "Boyz Crazy" when he is sitting by Candy while the girls are getting ready to go to the Sev'ral Timez concert. He is later seen when Deep Chris pets him on the head and says, "What up, girl?"
