Was Carl kinda a jerk in early seasons

Not to Steve but like how he treated people in general?
In many ways, for lack of a better example, he's a milder, live action form of Daffy Duck, who was the ultimate comedic *beep*


Laura was the bigger jerk who used Urkel and sassed every one else


We must have been watching 2 different shows.

Carl at times flew off the handle (especially when it came to dealing with Steve's antics) He had his flaws, but so does everyone else on the show. He also as his virtues (again as we all do).

He was a good cop, a loving husband and father and generally a good person. It's ridiculous to compare him to a cartoon character (though I won't deny the show itself became rather too cartoonish with some of the storylines in the later years).
