(Redirected to Big Mean Carl article)

From Muppet Wiki


Big Mean Carl is a shaggy monster who continued the proud tradition of Muppet characters with voracious appetites.

Although Carl made his first appearance in the 1992 Muppet Meeting Film "Think Bigger," in which he was called Chairman Budget and performed by Dave Goelz, he is best known for his role on Muppets Tonight, where he received the name Carl and his new performer, Bill Barretta.

On Muppets Tonight, Carl's stage name would change slightly from appearance to appearance, always starting with "Carl the Big Mean" but usually ending with a different appellation depending on what kind of act he was performing. But the acts, which ranged from Bagpipe-Eater to Ventriloquist, were usually just a cover for Carl's real intentions: to eat another character. Always a performer, though, Carl would usually end the with a triumphant "Thank you!"

He made six such appearances on Muppets Tonight:

  • Episode 104: Carl the Big Mean Bagpipe-Eater
  • Episode 106: Carl the Big Mean Bunny
  • Episode 109: Carl the Big Mean Ventriloquist
  • Episode 201: Carl the Big Mean Bubble Guy
  • Episode 206: Carl the Big Mean Porcupine-Eater
  • Episode 211: Carl the Big Mean Psychic

Carl also appeared regularly in one the show's recurring UK Spots, the game show Swift Wits, in which he always ate the contestants. He also performed with the Smashing Pumpkins in episode 210 and was visited by his mother, Carla the Big Mean Mom, in episode 212.

In a more recent appearance, Carl played the "boss," lording it over the director Pokey and a control room full of rats on the November 13, 2008 broadcast of Today, in which the Muppets took over the show to promote the newly opened Whatnot Workshop. He also appeared in A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa and "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Carl is a new character who is added to Fallout 3 in the add-on Broken Steel.

He was a member of a group of ghouls who tried to make themselves a place to live in Old Olney Underground, assuming it would be an ideal place for ghouls to settle down since nobody ever goes there. The group set about knocking down some walls and apparently disturbed a group of Deathclaws. At the time the Lone Wanderer arrives, Carl is already dead.

From the looks of it, it looks like Carl was the doctor of this new ghoul settlement due to his outfit, plus, he's found dead not to far from the demolished hospital.

From Grand Theft Wiki

This article refers to Carl from GTA III. For the protagonist of GTA San Andreas, see Carl Johnson.

Carl is the lover of Marty Chonks' wife, who is angry over her death and is looking for revenge.[1] Agreeing to meet Marty at the Bitch'n' Dog Food Factory[2], he successfully avoids Marty's trap by killing him with a concealed shotgun, effectively taking over Marty's business.[3] Carl can also be killed by Claude as he walks away from Marty's corpse. However, the Love Media website suggests that the conglomerate owns the Bitchin' Dog Food Factory.[4]

Grand Theft Auto III's depiction of Carl should not be confused with Carl Johnson, as he is Caucasian and speaks in an American English dialect (compared to CJ's African-American appearance and African-American vernacular English).

Karl Martin was a young man who was one of the Others. His origins are unknown, but he seemed to have been desperately trying to escape. Karl was Alex's boyfriend, but Ben, fearing he would get Alex pregnant, would not allow this relationship and locked up Karl. Afterwards, Karl escaped and joined the survivors with Alex. He, along with Alex and Danielle, was en route to the Temple before he and Danielle were assassinated by an unseen foe. Karl was shot in the chest; his death was later reported by Alex, and his body was found by Miles, Sawyer, and Claire. ("The Shape of Things to Come") ("Something Nice Back Home")


On the Island

Shortly before the crash of Flight 815, Karl had the X-Rays that revealed Ben's tumor developed. ("One of Us")

Some time between then and the kidnapping of Jack, Kate, and Sawyer by the Others, Ben became concerned that Karl would get Alex pregnant and decided to prevent this by having Karl imprisoned at the Hydra Station. ("Through the Looking Glass")

Days 69-91 (Season 3)

Karl questions Sawyer about his people. ("A Tale of Two Cities")

When Sawyer woke up in his cage, Karl did not respond to his questions about where they are and who he is. When Sawyer decided to investigate the cage and its buttons, Karl tried to warn him about the shocking device in the cage's food delivery system. Right before picking the lock on his cage, Karl asked Sawyer about the other survivors from the Oceanic Flight 815 (thus, Karl knew of the crash). (It should be noted that he asked Sawyer the walking distance to where he came from, making it sound as though there were no second island.) He broke out of his holding cell and freed Sawyer as well, apparently to serve as a distraction while he escaped.

Karl apologizes to Sawyer for involving him in his attempt to escape. ("A Tale of Two Cities")

Karl was captured by Tom and Juliet, who also captured Sawyer. He was forced by Tom to apologize to Sawyer for using him in his breakout attempt. Then he was taken away, presumably for punishment. ("A Tale of Two Cities")

After Karl was taken, Kate was put in his cell. While Kate and Sawyer were digging up and moving rocks, Alex, who was trying to remain hidden from the rest of the Others, asked Kate about Karl's whereabouts and whether she had seen him specifically in that cage. ("The Glass Ballerina")

Two days later, Alex told Kate that they would kill her boyfriend, "just like they killed mine." ("I Do")

Karl watching the brainwashing video in Room 23. ("Not in Portland")

During Kate and Sawyer's escape from The Others, Alex met up with them, asking them to help her find Karl, who she said was her boyfriend. At this point, Sawyer realized that Karl was the person originally in the cell next to his. If they agreed to help her, Alex promised, she would give them a boat to leave Hydra Island. ("Not in Portland")

The three arrived at the small building bearing the Hydra logo on the main doors. Inside, Karl was found in Room 23, restrained to a chair and wearing LED glasses, being forced to watch a bizarre video with flashing images and words, as well as a loud industrial-sounding soundtrack that seemed to be a form of brainwashing. When Kate and Alex freed him from the chair, Karl was not fully conscious and had to be carried out by Sawyer. ("Not in Portland")

Just before escaping, Juliet stopped them, forcing Alex to stay on the Island by saying that her father would need to see her when he came out of surgery, and would never allow Karl to live if Alex left. Juliet allowed the half-conscious Karl to leave in the boat with Kate and Sawyer. ("Not in Portland")

Sawyer convinces Karl that Alex is worth risking his life. ("Stranger in a Strange Land")

While the three were on their way to the main island, the still-groggy Karl repeated a phrase from the Room 23 video: "God loves you as he loved Jacob." Once they reach the Island, he briefly talks to Kate about the Others. He says that they use the Hydra Island for "projects" (but live on the main island) and that the children who were taken have been given "a better life" by the Others. He also reminisces about when he and Alex were younger.The following morning, Kate and Sawyer find Karl crying by himself. Sawyer talks to him alone, and suggests that he go back for Alex. Karl fears that he will be killed if he's caught again, but ultimately, he seems to be convinced that she's worth the risk. ("Stranger in a Strange Land")

Karl, though late, reveals to the survivors that Juliet is a mole. ("Greatest Hits")
Karl was later reunited with Alex and followed her path as she traveled with the Others. Hiding nearby but beyond the Others' detection, Karl received food and care from Alex in secret. When Ben decided to attack the survivors' camp earlier than planned, Alex urged Karl to warn them, pointing out that he owed Kate and Sawyer for saving his life earlier. Karl consented, taking the gun Alex gave him, and then ran to the shore. He hurriedly paddled the outrigger to the shoreline of the survivor camp, and there informed them that, once again, the Others were coming--earlier than the losties had thought.
Karl guards a captive Ben. ("Through the Looking Glass")
He volunteered the gun to them, proving that he could be trusted as Sawyer and Kate had vouched for him.("Greatest Hits")

On their way to catch up with Jack, Ben reveals to Alex that the reason he disapproved of her relationship with Karl was because he wanted to prevent her from getting pregnant, and having her life at risk on the Island, at all costs. Karl accompanied the main group of survivors to the radio tower, and reunites with Alex on the way. After Ben gets captured, Karl witnesses Alex's reunion with her mother. Karl then holds the rope which Ben is tied to, and guards him during Locke's confrontation with Jack. ("Through the Looking Glass")

Days 91-98 (Season 4)

Alex and Karl confront Ben, who advises them to head to the Temple. ("Meet Kevin Johnson")

Following Jack's call for rescue, Alex and Karl both celebrated both the survivors rescue and the fact that they were reunited, without Ben's interference. That night, when the survivors all met and split into factions he followed Alex and sided with Locke and proceeded with the rest of the group to the Barracks. ("The Beginning of the End")

In a moment of rest, Ben's taunts of his relationship with Alex resulted in Karl getting enraged and menacing his former captor with a gun, but he was told that "he's just trying to get in your head" and to take a walk by Sawyer. ("Confirmed Dead")

Karl is shot and murdered by one of the mercenaries. ("Meet Kevin Johnson")

He was present, along with Alex and Danielle, when Ben told everyone that his spy on the freighter was Michael. Ben then told them that the freighter people's mission was to capture him, then kill everyone on the island. After the rest of the survivors left, Ben asked Alex to stay behind. He told her to go to The Temple because it was a "sanctuary" and possibly the only safe place left on the island. Karl and Danielle accompanied her.

On the way there, the trio stopped for a short break. As Karl told Alex that he was getting a bad feeling, a bullet went through his canteen. He stared blankly at it before he was shot in the chest. He fell over, apparently dead. As Alex was screaming for him, Danielle claimed that he is "gone". ("Meet Kevin Johnson")

Before she was shot by Keamy, Alex told Locke's group that the freighter mercenaries killed Karl. ("The Shape of Things to Come") Miles later found his body while walking through the jungle, and Sawyer was visibly anguished by confirming the young man's fate. ("Something Nice Back Home")


  • Karl's surname was not revealed until the memorial video at the Lost Panel at Comic Con 2009. [1][2]
  • Out of all the main characters, Karl has met Ben, Juliet, Sawyer, Kate, Sayid, Jack, Sun, Jin, Charlie, Desmond, Hurley, Claire, Locke, Charlotte and Miles.
    • Even though Karl's episode count has been less than Alex's, he's met more main characters than she has.
  • When he first appears and his name is not yet known, Sawyer uses the nickname "Chachi" for him. This is a reference to the character from the 1970s/1980s TV shows Happy Days and Joanie Loves Chachi. Presumably, Sawyer thinks that Karl bears a visual resemblance to "Chachi." Later on, he calls him "Bobby", in an admitted reference to The Brady Bunch. Karl, confused, asks Sawyer "What the hell is The Brady Bunch?" indicating that he has grown up unexposed to American pop culture.
    • This is also a tongue-in-cheek joke referring to Karl's appearance on the show. Chachi, like Karl, was a new addition to his show several seasons into the series run.
  • "Greatest Hits" contains a brief flashback from Karl, albeit a recap told by him to the survivors.
  • Karl's time in Room 23 is eerily similar to the "reprogramming" that occurs to Malcolm McDowell's character in Stanley Kubrick's film "A Clockwork Orange." In the movie, the main character accepts a reduction in his prison sentence in exchange for submitting to a behavior modification technique. He is strapped into a chair and his eyes are forced to remain both open and focused on a screen showing scenes of grotesque violence. In the background of both scenes, loud music blared from every corner of the room and mixed with the sounds of people screaming. The idea with McDowell's character was to use this overexposure to give him a strong aversion to acts (or even thoughts) of violence. If it was the same idea, to what (or who) was Ben trying to give Karl an aversion?
  • Another argument that this may be an homage to the movie is found in the name of McDowell's character: Alex.
  • Karl and Alex's love story could be a reference to Willa Cather's O Pioneers! The main character, Alexandra, falls in love with but is unable to have a life with her neighbor, Carl.

Rise of the Empire era



Carl was a Shikitari, who was entered as a competitor in The Cauldron by a Devaronian conman, alongside several unsavory characters. He was defeated by Bugnaught.

Like all members of his species at this stage in their lifecycle, Carl was made up of several pupae, perfectly suited for gladiatorial combat. This stage of his life cycle was very short, lasting only two standard days. The Devaronian had pocketed a considerable price for Carl, snickering to himself that in two days, his buyer would be the proud owner of a hardened chrysalis from which twelve harmless flutterscouts would emerge.

After attacking a Bugnaught droid, Carl lifted the apparently defenseless machine over his head. It then proceeded to unleash it's flamethrower arm, killing Carl.
