Carl Brutananadilewski (//) is a fictional character from the Adult Swim animated television series Aqua Teen Hunger Force (also known by various alternative titles), as well as the online Adultswim.com shows Carl's Stone Cold Lock of the Century of the Week and Pregame Prognostifications from the Pigskin Wyzzard. Carl is a short-tempered, vulgar, tacky, ignorant and sarcastic man who is often the victim of the villainous plots or the antics of Master Shake or Meatwad and he is frequently subject to non-canon deaths. Carl was created and designed by Aqua Teen Hunger Force creators Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro. Carl is voiced by Willis, who also portrays him via motion capture in Pregame Prognostifications from the Pigskin Wyzzard. Carl's interests are in sports (big New York Giants fan), pornography and the bands Foreigner, Loverboy, Foghat and Boston, especially their song "More Than a Feeling". Willis has called him a stereotype of men in general.
Carl made his first official appearance in "Rabbot", the first episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force. Carl was voiced by MC Chris as an eight-year-old and was performed in the season 6 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. Carl was the host of Carl's Stone Cold Lock of the Century of the Week, an online football commentary series on Adult Swim's website from 2007 to 2016. Carl now hosts Pregame Prognostifications from the Pigskin Wyzzard, another more in-depth football commentary series streamed live on Adult Swim's website as of 2017. Carl has appeared in several video games and albums related to the show, including the 2007 film Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters.
Role in Aqua Teen Hunger Force[edit | edit source]
Carl Brutananadilewski lives next door to Master Shake, Frylock, and Meatwad in a suburban neighborhood in South New Jersey, which is identified as Seattle, Washington during the eleventh season, and later Seattle, New Jersey. Carl has a strong dislike of Master Shake, Frylock and Meatwad, he regularly lashes out at them and sometimes refers to them as "animals", among other insults. On rare occasions he gets along with them, and shows a nice attitude for them. He is often the victim of the villainous plots or the antics of Master Shake or Meatwad, and he is frequently subject to non-canon injury and/or death.
He has a strong passion for sports (his favorite NFL team is the New York Giants) and knows several stats off the top of his head. He is also a fan of various bands such as AC/DC, Foreigner, Judas Priest, Loverboy, Zebra and Boston, with their song "More Than a Feeling" being his favorite song. Carl has a car he named "2Wycked," which is a heavily modified Dodge Stealth. 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. Carl owns his own personal above ground pool in his backyard, which causes him irritation when used by his neighbors uninvited. In later seasons he owns a 21-inch plasma screen television, which appears extremely tiny when mounted to his wall. His property is frequently subject to non-canon destruction.
Specifics about his occupation have never been established; 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 amongst Chinese food, beer, and strippers. Carl works as a football commentator in Carl's Stone Cold Lock of the Century of the Week and Pregame Prognostifications from the Pigskin Wyzzard.
In "Remooned" it is revealed that Carl was born on February 19, 1961, when a drivers license is briefly seen. Carl is not typically depicted as being religious. In the season four episode "Handbanana," it is implied that Carl might have faith in 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!" Carl has also stated that he was Catholic in an episode of Carl's Stone Cold Lock of the Century of the Week.
Family[edit | edit source]
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. His father was also the former star of a series of amateur porn videos on VHS that Carl owns and treasures. Carl's mother lives at a VA Hospital, and occasionally asks him for very small amounts of money such as $10 for food, which Carl immediately dismisses. Carl sometimes loses tolerance when she asks him for favors, but he has shown on occasions that he genuinely loves her.
Carl has a cousin named Terry, an illegal plastic surgeon who is an ex-con and is in the Mafia, with whom he occasionally gambles. 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. In the episode "Mail Order Bride," he and Master Shake were both briefly married to a mail-order bride from Chechnya named Svetlana, who quickly runs off after the marriage. In "Big Bro," he accidentally impregnates a woman named Darlene, and later fakes his own death to avoid responsibility while leaving Frylock to raise his illegitimate son (who is never been seen or mentioned again in later episodes).
Character[edit | edit source]
Carl Brutananadilewski was created and designed by series creators Dave Willis and Matt Maiellaro. According to Willis the character was an amalgamation of his father's friends in Long Island, his college roommate "Dolla Bill $orrentino" and his uncle Skip, and that he had originally been envisioned as Space Ghost's neighbor, named Dominic, on Space Ghost Coast to Coast. Carl made his first appearance in the first episode of Aqua Teen Hunger Force entitled "Rabbot", which 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. The voice of Carl Brutananadilewski has been provided by Willis since his first appearance in Aqua Teen Hunger Force and other official appearances he has made. Willis also controls Carl's movements via motion capture in Pregame Prognostifications from the Pigskin Wyzzard. Scordino. While "Brutananadilewski" is the common spelling of his name, his name can also be spelled as "Brutanunanulewski".
Design[edit | edit source]
Carl Brutananadilewski is the only main character who is a human. Carl wears blue sweatpants, a white tank top, foam-green flip flops, and a golden chain around his neck. 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 as 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.
Carl's Stone Cold Lock of the Century of the Week[edit | edit source]
Carl hosted an online football commentary series entitled Carl's Stone Cold Lock of the Century of the Week on Adultswim.com from October 19, 2007 to February 5, 2016. Each episode featured him ranting and commenting on his 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. The series took place in Carl's living room, which is full of sports related merchandise and his oversized entertainment center.
Carl's Stone Cold Lock of the Century of the Week used to appear 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. However, the series now airs Fridays during the midnight version of SportsCenter (also hosted by Scott Van Pelt) on ESPN.
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 on December 16, 2008.
