Carl Brutananadilewski (also spelled Brutanunanulewski) is a fictional character on the Adult Swim animated television series Aqua Teen Hunger Force (also known by various alternative titles). Carl is a short-tempered, ignorant and sarcastic man who is often the victim of the villainous plots or antics of Master Shake or Meatwad, and he is frequently subject to non-canon deaths. Carl was created and designed by series creators Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro, and Willis provides his voice. Carl's interests are in sports (big Giants fan), pornography, and the bands Foreigner, Loverboy, and Boston, especially their song "More Than a Feeling"; he is said to be a stereotype of men in general by Willis.

Like the other main characters, Meatwad, Frylock, and Master Shake, Carl made his first official appearance in the show's first episode, "Rabbot". Carl was voiced by mc chris as an eight-year-old in "Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future" and was performed in the season six episode "Last Last One Forever and Ever" as a live-action person by David Long Jr., who had won a contest through Burger King for the role. As of 2007 Carl Brutananadilewski hosts his own internet spinoff series on Adult Swim Video, Carl's Stone Cold Lock of the Century of the Week. Carl has appeared in several video games and albums related to the series, including the 2007 film Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters.

Character[edit]

Carl Brutananadilewski was created and designed by series creators Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro. Carl made his first appearance in the first episode of the series entitled "Rabbot". "Rabbot" originally aired on Cartoon Network on December 30, 2000, as part of a preview of upcoming Adult Swim shows the episode later made its official television debut on September 16, 2001.[1] The voice of Carl Brutananadilewski is provided by Willis throughout the entire series and every other official appearance he has made.[2]

While "Brutananadilewski" is the common spelling of his name, his name can also be spelled as "Brutanunanulewski".[3]

Design[edit]

Carl Brutananadilewski is the only main character who is a human. Carl wears blue sweatpants, a white tank top, flip flops, and a golden chain. Carl has a mustache and is overweight, balding, and has hair all over his body, even on the bottom of his feet.

David Long Jr. provided a live action interpretation of Carl in "Last Last One Forever and Ever", and appears exactly as he does an animated character, unlike the other main protagonists who look significantly different as living beings. In Carl's Stone Cold Lock of the Century of the Week his attire is notably different than in the series. His tank top is red, white, and blue with a "1" on it and his sweatpants are a darker blue with black stripes on them, similar to Zubaz. In Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters Carl gets enormous muscles as a result from continuous use of the Insane-O-Flex, that render him unable to move. Eventually Dr. Weird cuts off Carl's muscles with a hunting knife and grafts them onto his own body. Carl survives, but only his head and bones remain.

Role in Aqua Teen Hunger Force[edit]

From 2000 until 2010, Carl Brutananadilewski, has lived next door to Master Shake, Frylock, and Meatwad in a suburban neighborhood in New Jersey, identified in later episodes as Seattle, Washington.[4]

Carl is quick tempered and sarcastic. He has a strong passion for sports (His favorite NFL team is the New York Football Giants), classic rock and pornography, which further his favorite activity, masturbation. One of Carl's few possessions of note is a backyard above ground pool. The pool is regularly used, uninvited, by the neighboring Aqua Teens, providing a primary source of irritation to Carl. Though he occasionally tolerates these intrusions in spite of their usually-disastrous outcomes, perhaps out of loneliness. Carl also has a car he named "2Wycked," which is a heavily modified Dodge Stealth. His car and house are often destroyed, and he is frequently tortured and killed, usually as a result of something the Aqua Teens have done but occasionally by his own or others' doing.

In the episode "Mail Order Bride" he and Master Shake were both briefly married to a mail-order bride from Chechnya named Svetlana. Carl is the son of a cruel father who worked in a carpet factory, and made him work there as a child, even on Christmas. Carl has a living mother who lives at a VA Hospital. She occasionally listens to him brag about money during which he proudly announces how his car, 2Wycked, will "rake in the Poontang." 2Wycked was purchased with a home equity loan which Carl thinks is worth the risk from this faulty endeavor due to imagined increased female interest. At other times, his mother asks him for very small amounts of money such as $10 for food, which Carl immediately dismisses. Her memory may be impaired but one gets the sense that gross general apathy is the cause of her failure to remember Carl, often to the extent that she needs to be reminded by him that he is her son and, further, that he is the "one with the mustache." His father was also the former star of a series of amateur porn videos on VHS that Carl owns and treasures. Carl has a cousin named Terry, an illegal plastic surgeon who is an ex-con and is in the Mafia (however, in a different episode, Carl refers to Terry as someone he knew in highschool, who is later revealed to be Dr. Weird). Carl also has a second-cousin named Denese, who once gave a handjob to Meat Loaf, and is now a single mother with whom Carl often berates out of misguided affection.

His job is never directly determined in the series; when asked about it in "Rabbot," he claims to "work out of the home." In the episode "Moonajuana," Carl told Frylock that he used to work at a Styrofoam peanut factory. The episode "Gene E" revealed that Carl studied "elevator repair," and in another episode he is seen trying to sell cheap counterfeit clothing made by Chinese immigrants. One of the Internet shorts revealed that Carl sells unauthorized Slippery When Wet beer koozies out of his basement. Carl has said that he works for 20 hours a week. Carl's expenses are divided between Chinese food, beer and strippers.

Carl's age is never officially determined. In "Remooned" it is revealed that Carl was born on February 19, 1961, when drivers license is briefly seen.[5] Carl is not typically depicted as being religious. In the season four episode "Handbanana," it is impiled that Carl doesn't belong to a church, but might have faith in a God, when he states, "I don't know if I believe in God, but I think he must hate me. Because he allowed you to create a dog that constantly rapes me!"[6]

Internet spin-off[edit]

As of 2007, Carl hosts his own online series on Adult Swim's online video on demand service, Adult Swim Video, which is simply titled Carl's Stone Cold Lock of the Century of the Week.[7] Each episode includes him ranting on about his comments and feelings on sports, among other topics, and also features his "Stone Cold Lock of the Century of the Week", where he talks about current issues in the NFL, such as the Brett Favre scandal and the NFL's latest decision about helmet-to-helmet tackles, and picks the winner in an upcoming game that he has something to say about, such as the Week 6 matchup between the Minnesota Vikings and the Dallas Cowboys. The series takes place in Carl's living room, which is full of sports related merchandise and his oversized entertainment center. Carl's internet series was originally titled Carl's Pissed in the first season, but was changed to Carl, by the second season. All episodes of Carl from season one, except "Super Bowl '09 Odds", were released as a special feature on the Aqua Teen Hunger Force Volume Six DVD[8] on December 16, 2008.

Carl's Stone Cold Lock of the Century of the Week appears on the SVP & Russillo show on ESPN radio in the 2:00 to 3:00 PM EST block every Friday during football season and is simulcast on ESPNEWS. Scott Van Pelt, one of the show's hosts, is a fan of Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

Reception[edit]

In a 2008 IGN interview, Patrick Kolan said "Carl is one of TV's all-time great every-man characterizations. We all know somebody just like him, and they rarely wear pants".[9]

In other media[edit]

Carl serves as a protagonist in Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters, a 2007 feature film based on the series. Carl's voice also appears on the film's soundtrack, and the 2009 series album Have Yourself a Meaty Little Christmas. Carl also appears in the video game Aqua Teen Hunger Force Zombie Ninja Pro-Am. Carl's voice can be heard in the video game Grand Theft Auto 5, on FlyLo FM on the radio. He calls in and says, "Yeah I'm calling in to request, uh, any music that ain't this. Stop playin' everything you've been playin' cause your music sounds like a dumpster rollin' down five flights of stairs."
