Carl Sweetchuck is one of the new cadets that first appeared in the second film, as a shop owner terrorized by Zed and his gang.

In the third film, Sweetchuck decides to join the force after his store is destroyed. Unfortunately to his chagrin, his former tormentor Zed joins the academy and assigned in the same class as him, and as mismatched roommates. A stereotypical nerd, Sweetchuck's diminutive size and geeky appearance provided many gags, usually in relation to his physical weakness or as a foil for fellow recruit Zed.

After just a few days, Sweetchuck could not take any more of Zed's antics and attempted to leave the academy but was convinced by Tackleberry to stay. As time went on, Sweetchuck and Zed eventually got along better and putting the past behind, though Sweetchuck still gets mad at Zed for one thing or the other.

In the animated series, Zed and Sweetchuck are partners. He has a younger brother named Doug who is an FBI agent.
