Character origins

In the early seasons, Carl was rarely seen with Lenny and did not have a consistent voice - on some occasions, he can be heard with Lenny's voice and vice versa.

Principal Charming is the fourteenth episode of The Simpsons second season, airing on February 14, 1991. ...


Carl often serves as a taciturn straight man to Homer and company, probably because of his harsh opinions of others, as seen in Pygmoelian when he makes everyone in Moe's Tavern cry and then turns to the camera, explaining: "See, this is why I don't talk much." A straight man is a role in a comedy double act where a performer works with a comedian by setting up the situations or feeding the lines that allow their partner to make a joke. ...

Relationship with Lenny Leonard

There is a constant allusion to homoeroticism in Lenny's and Carl's relationship, although no one seems to care much about it. In Half-Decent Proposal, Lenny dreamily recalls carving "Mount Carlmore", a huge bust of Carl in the side of a hill, during "one wonderful summer". When Homer asks Lenny what Carl thought of it, Lenny replies "You know, we've never discussed it." Lenford Lenny Leonard, MPhys is a fictional character in The Simpsons, voiced by Harry Shearer. ...

In another episode, 'Scuse Me While I Miss the Sky, various characters look at the stars to "see into their souls". Lenny sees an image of Carl, and Carl sees an image of himself. In another episode, Lenny recalls Bart offering Carl and Lenny $1,000 to kiss, and Carl asks Lenny, "Hey, did we ever get that money?" (Although this was in the non-canon Behind the Laughter episode, where the characters are shown as actors portraying themselves). On another occasion, Lenny and Carl are at the Springfield Baseball Stadium, watching the Kiss Cam, and Lenny says: "Hey Carl, remember when we used to kiss like that...[pause] with our respective girlfriends?" In the episode Ice Cream of Margie, Lenny says he can't tell apart the remains of his sculpture with Carl's remarking "I don't know where Carl ends and I begin!", Carl then says "it's stuff like this that makes everyone think we're gay." At times, Carl gets annoyed at Lenny. In Mountain of Madness, when Carl learns that he is paired with Lenny in a team-building exercise on a power plant retreat, his irritated response is, "Aw, nuts. I mean... aw, nuts." Image File history File linksMetadata No higher resolution available. ... Image File history File linksMetadata No higher resolution available. ...
