Meatwad: I don't have any real dolls, I prefer to use my infinite imagination Master Shake: You're about to not have a mouth! And I mean it! Carl: You think you're gonna live forever, but you won't. Someone'll kill ya.
He is the unfortunate neighbor of the Aqua Teens, a position that has caused him massive, untold amounts of grief over the course of several years. The son of a divorced one-time military man and eventual factory worker Carl's Dad , Carl grew up without a mother in abject poverty, being forced to work at the insulation factory with his father at the young age of eight. In the episode Cybernetic Ghost of Christmas Past from the Future , he is shown in with his mother absent, receiving a carpet sample as his only Christmas gift which Carl and his father presumably then boil and consume for Christmas dinner. The Christmas tree is bare and decorated with empty beer cans. Since he later reconnects with his mother when she's bedridden in a Veteran's Hospital, it is presumed he grew up in his father's custody after his parents divorced.
