Carver René Descartes (voiced by Phil LaMarr) is the self-proclaimed "cool guy" of the group. He is an African American and has a strong interest in clothes and fashion (particularly shoes). He is also Human Applejack's love-interest. Although he appreciates spending time with his friends, Carver desperately wants to be one of the cool kids and, ultimately, to become a celebrity. He is shown to be somewhat self-centered and can be immensely shallow and superficial: he once rejected a girl just because she was too tall. Thus the more touching moments of the show are when he is altruistic and battles his own insecurity. One of the many recurring jokes about Carver is that he secretly owns and tries on women's clothing. However, he usually (albeit nervously) responds that the clothing is his sister's. Carver also has a younger brother named Todd, a toddler stuck in his terrible twos, who occasionally torments Carver and, by extension, his friends. He sometimes goes to his sister, Penny, for advice, but she frequently disregards his questions. Carver's head is often compared to a pineapple for humorous effect. Carver is sometimes noted for his horrible handwriting, which often leads to people reading words much different from his intentions. Carver's family (except his dad) are all both voiced by Cree Summer.
