South Park Season 21 Episode 7 Doubling Down
Cartman usually gets whatever he wants simply by whining in his signature style. Why are you all just sitting there?!? Do you like this video? So she killed the other toys and planned on framing Token, but Cartman reminds her that because of Obama, black people cannot be blamed. It featured Eric Cartman and a Hobbit, who met his demise for not respecting Cartman's "authoritah". In the " The Unaired Pilot " episode, Cartman was shown to have a father and sister, but these characters were cut out in the official pilot. You can put a stop to all this.
Mother, three children, truck driver killed in multi-vehicle accident; father flown to hospital
Wing One of the very few occasions where a woman getting punched looks funny. Oh, well, there's a news flash. Even though Cartman is overweight, he always denies it especially in the earlier seasons by saying, "I'm not fat, I'm just big-boned", or some variation thereof. In " Coon 2: In " Pandemic 2: Jimmy suits up and prepares to shred in the annual surfing contest.
Gibson, wearing face paint from Braveheart , chases their bus in the tanker truck from Mad Max 2 , screaming " Qapla'! Father Maxi points out that the Passion was originally a play used to stir up anti-Semitism, but says that its subject matter can still help people. Kyle seizes on Father Maxi's statement that "Christianity is about atonement " and says he now understands what he should do. At another fan club rally outside the South Park theater, Cartman shouts hateful slogans in German and gives the attendees lines to shout back; mistaking the German for the Aramaic spoken in The Passion , they happily do so and join Cartman in goose-stepping through South Park shouting anti-Semitic slogans.
Meanwhile, Kyle suggests at his synagogue that the Jewish community should apologize for Jesus' crucifixion, prompting uproar in the congregation. The rabbi tries to calm the situation, saying "we live in a rational community, and everybody knows this is just a movie", but just then, Cartman and his parade pass the synagogue.
Horrified, the rabbi and congregation go to the theater and demand that they stop showing The Passion. Their argument with Cartman and his followers is interrupted by the arrival of the truck chase—Gibson crashes into the theater, destroying it. When he emerges unscathed, Cartman rushes to worship him, but Gibson ignores him and, rambling, first attempts one final time to force Stan and Kenny to give him his money back which fails, as they refuse , and then smears his own excrement on a building, much to the astonishment of Kyle and the fan club members.
Stan says that Christians should follow Jesus's teachings and not focus on how he died. The fans agree and disperse, much to Cartman's dismay. Kyle says he feels better about his Jewishness after hearing Stan's speech and seeing Gibson, who defecates on Cartman's face and runs off whooping. The New York Times' Virginia Heffernan praised the episode, writing "Depending on whom you asked, that episode, 'The Passion of the Jew,' proved that the show's still got it or that it's made a comeback or that it's better than ever.
No one will stop Cthulhu now. All will be sadness. Life will become death, and I will watch the crimson blood leak from your neck! That god you pray to just took away all my friends. He promised everything would change if we worshiped him, but we're still sitting here smoking cigarettes like before. It's like Obama all over again.
We can't be a dance troupe with just guys, people will think we're fags. That's when you need Heidi as of Season If you really are any kind of important to anybody, then get your bullshit food critic ass to the south of town and face me! Because you aren't a food critic, and you aren't important! Their outfits are too revealing for their ages.
All of them are named after expensive cars Mercedes, Lexus, Porsche. As expected, since they're sluts. Just let it go! Also, in " My Future Self 'n' Me " he spoke to Mexican workers in fluent Spanish, suggesting that he is, in fact, fluent or knows a few phrases. This, however, is a line from the song "Lady Marmalade", and considering the meaning of the phrase, likely means that Cartman does not actually speak French.
Granted, there really hasn't been much focus on this particular talent of Cartman's since most of the story plots don't focus on it so there's virtually very little known as to how he learned these other languages so well at such a young age. It's possible that his mom Liane Cartman may have personally taught him the other languages, as was revealed in " Hooked On Monkey Fonics when she purchased a educational game that helped Cartman to improve his spelling skills.
In " Funnybot ", Cartman speaks German to The Germans, seemingly offering them Kyle as a way to make peace with them, or just kill him. Cartman appears to be musically talented. He plays the piano quite well in the episode " Christian Rock Hard " although the piano plays by itself whilst he is singing so it may be a player piano and Cartman can't play it , the violin in " Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes ", the French horn in " Summer Sucks ", the drums in " The Red Badge of Gayness ", the harmonica in " Jakovasaurs " and " Whale Whores ", the recorder flute in " World Wide Recorder Concert ", the acoustic guitar in " Chinpokomon ", and pan flute in " Pandemic ".
He is shown to be randomly strumming a guitar and beating the drums so he isn't too good at them. In the film South Park: In " Chef Aid ", he sings and does a German dance to raise money for Chef's legal fees. Cartman's musical tastes run toward progressive and arena rock in general and maudlin power ballads in particular. This song was later released as a real downloadable single for the game. Cartman frequently bursts into song spontaneously, sometimes with melodies and topical lyrics of his own devising, although his musical talent is questionable.
He often uses this skill in order to persuade others by using the song to manipulate their thoughts and emotions. This penchant for ad hoc songs was specifically mentioned in " Ginger Kids ". This also happened in the episode " Cherokee Hair Tampons " when Stan asks Cartman to donate a kidney to a very sickly Kyle, Cartman replies by singing "No no no no no no no no no no!
In a mean-spirited feeling, Cartman begins singing an Elvis version of " In The Ghetto " when in Kenny's neighborhood, namely, the poor part of town.
For Rush's Snakes and Arrows tour, a short animated clip was made to introduce the song "Tom Sawyer", featuring the boys from South Park as a band attempting to perform the song. Cartman is featured as the lead singer Geddy Lee. Cartman knows a bit about Photography, as shown in a few episodes.
In " Christian Rock Hard ", he demonstrates his knowledge of the nature of music artist's album covers, such as how the members of a band are mostly in random places looking in other directions and never smile. Also, in " Cartman Sucks ", Cartman takes up his hobby of inviting Butters over, just to take embarrassing photos of him. He is also shown presenting a slideshow in class, and comments about them skillfully. He even has professional help with his photo shoot in Part III.
Also he is good at Photoshop, though his art skills are very first grade like as we can see from " Mystery of the Urinal Deuce ", when he is framing Kyle. Cartman has been bad at sports, and sometimes good. He plays Baseball, as he is seen hitting a home run and plays catcher on the Baseball team, as seen as one of the three players Stan , Kyle , and Cartman hitting a home run in " The Losing Edge ". In " Grey Dawn " he is seen playing street hockey along with the rest of the boys as a goalie.
In later episodes " ManBearPig " and " Guitar Queer-O ", Cartman is seen to be playing basketball with the other boys, however he isn't nearly as talented as he seems to think or the others. He often cries out 'Stop cheating you black asshole! However, Cartman seems to have a grasp of cheating strategies as seen in " Eek, A Penis! Cartman tries out for the wrestling team in " W. In the same episode he formed a wrestling league along with some of the other boys.
However, the wrestling in which they performed was more dramatic theater in which they created complicated in depth story lines for their wrestling personas, rather than actual athletic prowess. Cartman is also seen as a not very good swimmer, in " Summer Sucks ".
Cartman is upstaged by handicapped children in " Up the Down Steroid ", where his elaborate plan to beat the handicapped children in athletics backfires, with him placing dead last in every sport.
Cartman is shown carrying more weapons than any other kid in South Park, although where he obtains these weapons is never properly explained. He has been shown using a dagger when trying to stop Stan and Kyle from destroying the Wall-Mart , and a pair of sai a Japanese short sword in " Good Times with Weapons ". He never actually struck anyone with these weapons, although it is pretty obvious he could have.
In the early episode " Chickenlover ", Cartman receives a nightstick otherwise known as a baton due to his duty as police officer. He constantly uses it to abuse suspects and criminals, usually hitting them in the legs.
In Imaginationland , Cartman is seen brandishing a Bowie knife. In " Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy ", he also was shown using a very potent type of mace designed for use on bears.
He uses it with gusto on suspects and people evading capture, as well as on people who probably did not need it. The rest of his crew uses the same mace. Cartman also carries around what appears to be a Glock 17 pistol that has been seen in a few episodes. He however has never fired it, and only uses it to threaten people. In " The China Probrem " when he and Butters stormed a Chinese restaurant, and he orders Butters to use his gun to hold the crowd and fire at any intruders although Cartman begins to regret giving Butters the firearm, as Butters keeps accidentally shoots men in the dick.
His most recent use of the weapon was in " PC Principal Final Justice ", where he threatens his mother at gunpoint, who soon after reciprocated the action. Despite the fact that he has many weapons at his disposal, he does not seem to be very good with them. In " Wing ", he is seen firing an unidentified assault rifle, although he never can land precise shots with it due to the recoil making Cartman flail his arms around, although this is understandable as 9 year olds are not generally intended to use firearms.
He killed two Chinese but he wasn't aiming at them. He also shows an inability to use his dagger when fighting Kenny over the Wall-Mart, although it is likely he either had no interest in killing Kenny only use the dagger for threatening people , or that he was too pre-occupied with Kenny lightly slapping him to use it. Cartman uses bladed finger gloves similar to Freddy Krueger when dressed as The Coon.
Cartman beats up several people with these weapons; Mint Berry Crunch and The Mosquito at the same time, though it was a surprise attack, a little girl in an airport; several adults in an attempt to stop "murders" and "rapes", and fights off Professor Chaos and General Disarray , though he is eventually beaten. This shows skill, though most were surprise.
Cartman gains the ability to fire electricity at people in " South Park: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut " by way of a defective V-Chip. Cartman uses this ability by using words that are considered naughty. Cartman kills a black demon, and is shown beating Saddam Hussein in a fight, whereas the military could not even harm him with machine guns. Cartman also rises into the air after a chain of naughty words, including " Barbra Streisand ". Cartmans electrokinesis is gone in the show, most likely removed as a result of Satan making everything "go back to how it used to be" as per Kenny's final request.
Cartman "kills" Clyde Frog by slicing him open in several places, and crucifying him to a tree, showing skill with a blade, and enough strength to force sewing needles into a tree; he "kills" Peter Panda by setting him on fire while sleepwalking; he "kills" Muscleman Marc by supposedly boiling him alive; he hooks a bomb collar he apparently made himself onto Wumpletumpkins, showing immense skill with traps and explosives as well as creating and inventing deadly weapons that could be used by the military; and he shoots Polly Prissypants in the head with a magnum revolver several times and using the entire load case of the gun, which was 6 shots total, showing incredible marksmanship, never missing a shot, and always hitting the head and not damaging the chair at all despite the recoil the revolver had.
Cartman, along with the ret of the town, gets addicted to guns in " PC Principal Final Justice ", although he doesn't fire one. In the episode " Ass Burgers ", Cartman is shown to be able to cook hamburgers very well, if only achievable after putting them in his underpants.
Cartman also makes something called a "Toaster Pastry Chocolate Mix Butter Bar", by taking two pop tarts and sandwiching them with a stick of butter covered in chocolate milk mix in " Fat Camp ". In the episode " Jakovasaurs ", Cartman's backpack is shown with a tag that reads: Cartman wears a red jacket, yellow mittens, a blue hat with a yellow puff ball on top, brown pants, black shoes, and white socks as seen in " Super Fun Time ".
He sometimes wears a green t-shirt with a bear picture on under his jacket, a white tank top, and occasionally a dark red t-shirt. He has medium-brown hair and a double-chin. He also has triangular-shaped eyebrows, in contrast to the other main boys' rectangular ones.
Even though Cartman is overweight, he always denies it especially in the earlier seasons by saying, "I'm not fat, I'm just big-boned", or some variation thereof.
However, as seen in " Merry Christmas Charlie Manson! But in " Fat Camp ", when he tells his mother to talk about how he's big boned and such, she instead says, "Those were all lies, sweetie, you're just fat. Cartman likely has blue irises, as, due to the events of " The Succubus ", he has Kenny's eyes, which were shown with blue in " Starvin' Marvin ". In Season Twenty , he wears a t-shirt with the words "Token's life matters". Cartman uncapped in " How to Eat with Your Butt ". Cartman can, on rare occasions, show compassion towards cats, as in " Major Boobage " in which he hides cats in his attic from the authorities.
This compassion hints that he has not progressed to be a full sociopath. In " The Death of Eric Cartman ", Kyle sums up Cartman's character as a "fat, racist, self-centered, intolerant, manipulative sociopath". Cartman as a metrosexual in " South Park is Gay!
Cartman's much quoted line, "Respect my authority" or as Cartman pronounces it, "respect mah authori-tah" highlights his power hungry and dictatorial characteristics. Despite these traits, Cartman rarely commands respect from his peers. Cartman's friendships with the other kids are clearly existent, but just not shown as much because of his personality. Ironically, despite or perhaps because of these qualities, Cartman also seems to be a natural leader, able to utilize overwhelming charisma and rhetoric to gain the obedience of large groups on a moment's notice as in " The Passion of the Jew " , appearing to be innately aware of how to take advantage of "mob mentality" and direct it toward accomplishing his personal goals, as has been evidenced in countless episodes throughout the series' history.
In situations where the other boys share his goals, Cartman is often the de facto leader e. Indeed, the others consistently show a willingness to follow him and trust in his leadership when he's using his abilities for "good.
Cartman also seems to share many of the shows creators' Trey Parker and Matt Stone more controversial opinions, despite both of them modeling Stan and Kyle after themselves.
Examples of this include an extremely strong dislike for Family Guy for its lack of character development, plot, or smart humor. Other examples include Cartman's strong distaste of hippies, to the point that he has personally kept them out of South Park since he was 4 years old, and his belittlement of the Catholic Church as extremist, homophobic, and a supporter of pedophiles in " Medicinal Fried Chicken ".
He also considers John Lennon to be the "king of hippies". Even though Cartman is a child, he discriminates against a lot of people. In fact, he is a racist, sexist, and specialist. He is a racist because he thinks that "minorities" would take over the world someday as revealed in " The China Probrem " and in " Pee ". In first three seasons, Cartman did not show any racism but it soon developed after the events of " Cartman's Silly Hate Crime ". His discrimination lead to him becoming a bully on Token Black as he was African American.
His sexism is also seen in the series as he hates girls too but that is because he is sexually confused. He actually believes that girls and women are weaker than men and stupider too. His sexism also made him turn his own mom into a personal slave who spoils Eric with anything he wanted, however, she started to resist him in " Tsst ". Cartman's speciesism is also seen in the show and started to show it against his cat, Mr. Cartman also has bigotry towards extraterrestrials and is extremely xenophobic but that is simply because some visitors placed an anal probe into him twice, thus starting his speciesism.
However this kind of speciesism against alien races is very rarely seen in the show. Cartman is extremely anti-Semitic, and a great many of his bigoted actions are directed towards all Jews and especially toward his Jewish friend Kyle , whom he openly hates and considers sub-human because of his faith.
He then dresses up as Hitler and manipulates a group of people, who think that they are simply raising awareness for the movie and Christianity, to join him in an anti-Jew march while chanting in mispronounced German: When he tried to win the Special Olympics by feigning a disability in " Up the Down Steroid " , Kyle attempts to talk him out of it by telling him, regardless of their differences, that Cartman will surely go to Hell for such an act; Cartman replies that Kyle does not understand that Hell is reserved for the Jews, indicating once again his self-righteousness.
He also has been shown to consider Judaism to be a disability and the title "Jew" to be an insult. In the episode " Pinkeye ", Cartman dresses up as Hitler for Halloween A costume made by his mother even though Cartman himself did not know who Hitler was, showing that his antisemitism may come from his mother in some part. When shown a documentary to demonstrate why dressing like him isn't cool, Cartman is enthralled and imagines himself being the one commanding the Nazi troops in the video.
Since Cartman has trouble restraining himself from teasing Kyle Schwartz about his Jewish heritage since he is the stereotypical Jew that Kyle Broflovski had been trying to avoid being for five years , when Ms. Choksondik later tells Kyle Schwartz to concentrate, Cartman impulsively blurts out: A contradiction of his idolization of Adolf Hitler is seen in " I'm a Little Bit Country " where in this episode Cartman is incapable of pronouncing "Nazi" correctly pronouncing it "Nay-zee" upon seeing it written, as though he had never come upon the word before.
Another contradiction occurs in " Tsst ", when Cartman compares his mother who had been instructed how to treat her rampantly egocentric son by the Dog Whisperer, with Hitler, as a reason why she should be killed although this is probably because Cartman is not being allowed to indulge in his personal desires.
In addition to taking regular jabs at racial, ethnic and religious minorities, as well as people of lower income like Kenny , Cartman is also prejudicial against red-haired, light skinned and freckled people, which means that he is anti ginger. This particular prejudice most probably originated from the notorious incident with Scott Tenorman , who had red hair and freckles, although it may also be partially due to the fact that Kyle has red hair and Liane Cartman's presumed prejudice against red haired people.
He believes that ginger kids are the most evil people in the world and that they have no souls, which is clearly false. During the episode " Ginger Kids ", when the other three boys lead him to believe he has become a Ginger himself in order to teach him a lesson, he is horrified.
Later, he organizes a cult of homicidal Ginger children bent on world conquest known as the " Ginger Separatist Movement ", remarking: An even bigger irony however, would be when he later discover that he was indeed half-Ginger, as his biological father, Jack Tenorman who was also father of Scott Tenorman was a Ginger football player for the Denver Broncos.
This would technically make him a "Daywalker"; he does have the Ginger gene. Cartman hates ginger kids a lot because he thinks that they would take over the world someday and are soulless. Cartman seems to ignore his half ginger heritage in later episodes simply because he is ashamed of it.
Cartman also may harbor some bigotry towards African-Americans. He is never shown out right hating black people although he does believe in several stereotypes , and is shown several times playing with Token and seeking advice from Chef one of the few characters on the show Cartman generally respected.
Although Cartman was in jail for his "hate crime" on Token, even though it is quite obvious he did not bash Token's head with a rock because he is black, but because he thought Token had insulted him it was in fact Kyle who did this.
Even though he usually rips on Token for being black, and he said he is gonna kill Token someday - " Christian Rock Hard " , he does not seem to harbor negative feelings for black people, and Cartman always says he is going to kill people, so saying he was going to kill Token might not be personal. I'm not black, all right?! This is strange because in Up the Down Steroid when Kyle informs that Cartman is going to cheat, Cartman responds to this by saying that hell is only reserved for Jews, but he did not include African Americans into the mix.
Cartman's bigotry and antisemitism seem to come in second next to his personal needs, however; despite his hate for the Jews, Cartman saves Kyle in the episode " Smug Alert! In " Le Petit Tourette ", he is not above thanking Kyle for stopping him from humiliating himself on national television. Also, he saved the life of Kyle, who had been killed by Manbearpig in " Imaginationland, Episode II "; while this was seemingly because Kyle would not be able to suck his balls if he died, he was shown to cry, and showed concern even before the military leader reminded him that "at least now he doesn't have to suck anyone's balls.
Cartman is usually an orderly individual, while his goals are chaotic in nature, he obeys rules when they suit him, even using order to manipulate other people. He often idolizes people whom he feels share his various bigotries and aims. By this reasoning, he falls under "Neutral Evil", with no particular preference towards law or chaos, as either one can be used to his advantage. Cartman is usually cold-hearted and selfish, but can be warm-hearted and caring on a whim.
This sensitive and selfless side of Cartman is often a superficial cover up for a selfish scheme he has in mind. It has been repeatedly shown that Cartman has serious behavioral and emotional problems.
He has extremely exaggerated anger issues and violent tendencies when upset. Perhaps the best example of this is seen in " Scott Tenorman Must Die ", when he had two people shot, ground into chili and then fed to their distraught son, causing a horrified Kyle to say that he and Stan should never piss off Cartman again.
This has since been regarded as Cartman's defining moment and has been brought up again countless times during the series. Cartman's confused sexuality is most apparent in the episode " Cartman Sucks ", in which Cartman takes pictures of himself with Butters' penis in his mouth to make Butters look gay.
However, Kyle, Stan and Kenny explain that such actions actually make Cartman look gay, which results in Cartman trying to get a picture taken of his own penis in Butters' mouth. Another moment of this apparent confusion can be seen during the events of the " Imaginationland " trilogy, where he bet Kyle that leprechauns were real, and if he won, Kyle would have to suck his balls. Although Cartman was proven to be right, Kyle refused, causing Cartman to become obsessed, and began going to extreme lengths to force Kyle to suck on his balls.
When Jimmy later questions his motive behind pursuing Kyle to get him to suck his balls as being "a little faggy", he explains that it was all to humiliate Kyle.
In Le Petit Tourette he unconsciously blurts out that he touched penises with his cousin. Ever since Cartman's voice has changed, he has a peculiar, geographically indeterminable accent, or possibly speech impediment, with odd pronunciations of certain words and names which has shown to be a dominant trait in the extended Cartman family. Aside from the sheer volume of expletives in his dialog, he also uses words in different and often grammatically incorrect context.
Some examples of this are: In the episode, " The Poor Kid ", Cartman was finally confronted by other characters about his mispronounciations. Weatherhead walked into the room, replying with "My name is not Meem. A defining arc during the show's fourth season was Cartman's single-minded quest to make 10 million dollars. The schemes he has tried include; becoming a part of the Denver "tooth racket"; and stealing Tooth Fairy money from kids , starting a boy band called Fingerbang , and forming his own church and embezzling it's collection money These all failed miserably for several reasons.
He also tried at it in the episode " Cherokee Hair Tampons " when Kyle's kidneys were failing and Cartman, being the only one with Kyle's blood type, demanded a payment of 10 million dollars when Stan begged him to let Kyle have his kidney.
He has also tried to sell a crashed truck-load of aborted fetuses to the highest-bidding stem cell research center, and even to a restaurant as food. The reasons for this are never fully explained, although in one episode " Cartmanland ", after inheriting a million dollars from his grandmother, he reveals that he wishes to buy his own amusement park so he won't have to wait in lines for the rides.
He also stated that it has been his dream to own a million dollars since he was two years old. In " ManBearPig " Cartman stumbles upon a pile of treasure while the boys are trapped in a system of caves.
Afraid that the others might find the treasure and demand a share, Cartman decides to swallow as many of the coins and jewels as he can, causing him to become extremely bloated and unable to walk or swim on his own.
Later in the episode it is revealed, during the process of painfully crapping it out, that the treasure is fake and used for photographs for tourists at the caves. He is miserably and completely scrooged, determined not to give up the slightest amount of money, such as refusing to give a dollar to Afghan children in " Osama bin Laden Has Farty Pants ", "I'm not giving a dollar to those towel-heads!
Although Cartman can at times be worldly, he is often wildly misinformed; he once believed that dolphins lived in igloos and mistook a canned food drive for 'when you cut open a chick's stomach and pull out the baby from inside,' and mistakes sexual harassment when 'you're having intercourse with a lady friend and someone tickles your balls from behind.
Cartman appears to know very little about the female anatomy. Also, in the episode " Chickenpox ", when he was told that his mom sent him to Kenny 's house so he would catch chickenpox, he claimed that he would "kick her square in the nuts". In " Raisins ", he agreed with Butters when he said to Bebe " Oh yeah? Well, at least we have assholes. In " The List ", he made a plan to steal a list the girls made of who the cutest boys in the class were.
The plan involved Butters kicking one of the girls in the balls, which failed of course, forcing Cartman and the rest of the boys to conclude that "Our mission failed, but we've learned a lot; primarily that girls do not have balls". Despite this, in " Member Berries " he was shown to still not have learned this. In " Fort Collins ", having seen Heidi Turner 's vagina, it is implied he still does not realize women don't have balls.
In " Are You There God? It's Me, Jesus ", Cartman claimed he had hit puberty because he had his period, when really he had an infection that made him bleed out his butt he didn't realize that only girls got periods until God told him at the end of the episode. In " Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy ", it is shown that Cartman's idea of sexual intercourse is to " Stick it inside her and pee. If you don't want to get her pregnant you pull it out and pee on her leg.
Kitty's being a dildo! However, it is possible he is using it as a generic insult, such as calling someone a "dick". Also in Pee , his ignorance is again displayed when he thinks all the minorities in "his" water park are what the Mayans predicted and by , the apocalypse will be when the whole world is minorities. Cartman also confuses English people with French people. In the early seasons, he often teased Pip and called him a " French piece of crap ".
On the other extreme, in the movie, he called The Mole a "'British piece of' shit", despite The Mole being supposedly French. Additionally, in " The Jeffersons ", he alludes to despising Austrians, apparently failing to note the irony of the fact that he admires Hitler, who was Austrian. It is also worth noting that Cartman is completely oblivious to the fact the other kids hate him, and often assumes they're joking when they imply or even openly declare it.
In the episode " " Cartman completely ignores the fact that he got his own father killed and fed to his half-brother and is more concerned about being half-ginger. In " Bass to Mouth ", Cartman is oblivious to the fact that his making another student crap herself is useless when trying to prevent the suicide of another student.
Cartman shows a pathological degree of impatience when forced to do something he doesn't want to do or when he has to wait for something he wants. An example of the former is seen in " I'm a Little Bit Country ", in which Cartman electrocutes himself in an attempt to create a flashback and avoid studying.
In the episode " Go God Go ", where Cartman freezes himself so that he won't have to wait three weeks for the Nintendo Wii console to be released, which shows irony in the end; Butters cannot find where Cartman was frozen due to an avalanche, and Eric is thawed out almost years in the future, the people there zap him back to his own time where it turns out that he got sent back three months before the Wii's release.
In Medicinal Fried Chicken , Cartman is shown to be extremely agitated when he has waited to have KFC for too long and blurts out obscenities and shouting horrible things to his friends and to his mom Liane Cartman and when the KFCs get replaced with medicinal marijuana stores, he goes to an addiction clinic to be prescribed with KFC gravy. Although Cartman frequently insults and taunts his friends, he sometimes appears to be more cowardly than they are when it comes to physical confrontation.
In " It's Christmas in Canada ", after Cartman repeatedly threatens to beat Kyle up if they don't get home in time for Christmas, Kyle punches Cartman and he immediately bursts into tears. A similar instance can be seen during " Cartman Sucks ", although Kyle only punches Cartman in the arm.
Cartman may react like this to gain sympathy from other boys so he may turn the other boys against Kyle showcased in " It's a Jersey Thing ", where he turned Butters and a few other boys against Kyle by exaggerating how Kyle pushed him against a tree or he could just be cowardly, it is unknown which It is likely the latter. At the end of " Kenny Dies ", after Cartman revealed his true motives for fighting to lift the ban on stem cell research, to replicate a " Shakey's Pizza " and not to save Kenny's life, Kyle, enraged about this, brutally begins to beat up Cartman, delivering several blows to his chest and a good roundhouse right.
The beating continued on until the end of the episode and hasn't been mentioned at all since, although it shows Kyle was able to beat Cartman easily when angry.
Nelson , engaged in a fight in " With Apologies to Jesse Jackson ". In " Tweek vs. Craig ", Cartman has no problem with fighting the other boys back physically and it is revealed that Sumo is his martial art of choice.
In " I'm a Little Bit Country " he smiles and sings the Dawson's Creek theme while he kills the Official Messenger Boy with a piece of wood then drags the body off-screen, although this happens in what was essentially a fantasy of Cartman's and may, therefore, due to Cartman's inflated ego, not be representative of his actual abilities.
Also in the episode " Cartoon Wars Part II ", he and Kyle have a slap fight, which he won though this was more through deceit than skill , and in the episode " With Apologies to Jesse Jackson ", he was dominant in a physical fight against a midget who supposedly had a black belt in karate.
In " Miss Teacher Bangs a Boy ", Cartman is shown being physically abusive to innocent kids in the hallways. He once pushes an unnamed kid up against a wall, until the kid showed him his hall pass, after which Cartman acts as if nothing happened. The kid questions Cartman about his abuse of power, and Cartman promptly kicks him across the room in a somewhat cartoonish way, although he is never shown pulling off a feat like that again. In " Breast Cancer Show Ever ", Cartman is shown to be quite nervous over fighting Wendy and is shown going to great lengths to avoid the confrontation.
However, when Wendy decides to fight him regardless, he is quite spectacularly defeated. Overall, Cartman is a decent fighter, although he can be a wuss and particularly enraged opponents can beat him with ease.
His specialty lies more with weapons than his fists. Throughout all of these scenes, it is heavily suggested that Cartman indeed has a high tolerance for pain, however will often feign pain to gain sympathy from those around him. This shown especially in It's a Jersey Thing , where it wasn't until after Kyle left did he start crying from being attacked by him, and then later used it to convince other boys to lock him in a meat locker.
In " Coon 2: He also gives Clyde a nasty cut after kicking him in the face, showing his jumping abilities and the amount of force he can kick with. Cartman has a disturbing habit of appearing in other people's homes in the middle of the night. He has a preoccupation with becoming mature, or at least more so than his friends, which frequently ends in him doing something that is anything but mature.
Cartman also appears to be driven by a desire to surpass Kyle especially , Stan, and Kenny. Knowing that his satisfaction chiefly comes with seeing other people unhappy, Kyle once deliberately congratulated Cartman on winning a bet. This, of course, ruined Cartman's egotistical satisfaction at having humiliated him. Cartman also carries around what appears to be a Glock 17 pistol that has been seen in several episodes.
He has actually never fired it, and only uses it to threaten people.
