Carlton is a minor character in The Amazing World of Gumball. He made his first appearance in "The Sweaters."


Carlton is a blond human boy teenager. He wears a pale blue sweater with a pink sweater tied around his neck, and white shorts with a green sweater tied around his waist.


Carlton thinks he is very hardcore, more hardcore than Gumball and Darwin (and possibly than all of Elmore). He is very boastful, and can be a real bully along with Troy. Along with this, he is very ignorant as shown when he insists on fighting with Gumball and Darwin (even after admitting that they are not hardcore many times) and becoming friends with them when the Watterson brothers did nothing at all to earn his respect. He also seems to be not so smart, and this may have been hinted when Mr. Kreese reminds him and Troy that they "don't think," but rather they "do what they're told." As shown in "The Spinoffs," he is more logical and intelligent than Troy, as he alone seems confused by the nonsensical show they are a part of. This seems to display that he has matured somewhat.
