"Matters of the Kart" is the twenty-first episode of the second season, and the fifty-ninth episode of The Casagrandes.


After an old man wins Carl's dream go kart, Carl wants to prove that he's worthy of the prize himself.


Carl and Sergio are at the pizza restaurant getting a pizza. After ordering their pizza, the chef informs them of the raffle he's holding, where the winner gets a pizza-themed go kart. Wanting to win it, Carl proceeds to participate in the raffle. Later, the raffle is being held, and Carl secretly informs Sergio, who's hiding in the ball cage, what his number is. When the chef spins the cage, Sergio ends up getting sick from dizziness, and loses Carl's number. The chef picks the winning ball, and an old man named Irving approaches and announces that his number has been chosen. Although happy that he won, Irving reveals that he plans on giving it to someone worthy of possessing it. This gives Carl the idea of pretending to be a hero in front of Irving so that he believes in him being an honest, caring person.

At the park, as Irving sits on a bench, Carl tries to pull off several stunts in order to paint his good-boy façade, ranging from littering the park so that he can pick it up, and sending a stroller on the loose so he can stop it, but some unexpected setbacks cause those plans to fail. For the last trick, Carl has Sergio hire the pigeons to attack Irving so that he can shoo them away. Realizing that Carl "saved" his life, Irving decides that Carl is compassionate enough to deserve his go kart. Later, as the two arrive to the Casagrande apartment, Rosa arrives and discovers Carl sitting in the go kart. At first, she assumes that Carl conned it out of Irving, but when Irving reveals that he gave it to him because of his kindness, Rosa, doubtful of this claim, invites Irving for dinner, to which he agrees, much to Carl's dismay.

As the Casagrandes and Irving eat dinner, Carl tries to keep up his façade of being a compassionate person, and the family is completely shocked by this change in personality, thinking that he's not the real Carl. As Carl tries to keep his act going, the pigeons suddenly arrives and storm the windows. Sergio panickingly informs him that the pigeons haven't been paid their bread (which Carl failed to do because he assumed Sergio would do it). Before long, the pigeons break through the window, and begin attacking the family and Irving. Irving urges Carl to fend off the birds, but Carl, in a state of panic, tells them to save themselves before ducking for cover under the table. Sergio quickly informs Rosa that they'll go away when they're fed bread, and Rosa complies. When the birds leave, Carl pops from underneath the table to see if the coast is clear, only to be confronted with an angry Irving and the equally enraged Casagrades. Irving scolds Carl for pushing others aside to save himself, and Carl ultimately confesses that he only pretended to be nice to get the go kart, as well as admitting that he hired the pigeons to attack him so that he can "save" him. After another scolding from Rosa (for pretending to be something he isn't for his own ends), Carl gives the go kart keys back to Irving, and when Carl wishes him luck in finding someone who truly deserves it, Irving decides to give the keys back to Carl, saying he's up for second chances, and might know a way for Carl to keep the go kart.

Carl helps a same-sex couple save their pram.

At the park, Carl uses the go kart in order to do heroic deeds, like picking up all the garbage, and catching a runaway pram. When Carl comments on how fun it is to actually help people, the pigeons suddenly arrive and steal the go kart, but Carl just laughs it off.


Carlitos and Hector have no lines in the episode.


  • This episode implies that the very idea of Carl being a caring, compassionate person is something that doesn't resonate very well with the Casagrandes, almost as if they want him to be being his selfish and greedy self.
  • This episode has the same title card music as "The Kid Plays in the Picture".


  • Matters of the Kart - The title of this episode is a pun of the expression "matters of the heart", which means to follow/go through with something based on desire.
