Elvin Cartman is one of Cartman's relatives who first appeared in the Season Two episode "Merry Christmas Charlie Manson!". He is Eric Cartman's cousin and Liane's nephew, as well as the son of Uncle Stinky and Lisa Cartman, and the brother of Alexandra Cartman. He is referred to as "Cousin Elvin" throughout the episode.


In his first appearance, he and the rest of his extended family will spend the holidays at Mabel Cartman's house. He accompanies The Boys and Charles Manson to the mall to see Mr. Hankey after his grandmother asked Cartman to take care of him. At the mall he is clubbed over the head by Cartman after his Fudgsicle runs out and he starts crying, resulting in him becoming unconscious and one of his eyes turning white. On the way back to Mabel's house in a car chase, he manages to elude the cops by throwing his Fudgsicle in the middle of the road, causing all the cars to crash. At the end of the episode, he, the boys, and the rest of the Cartmans sing a Merry Christmas song to Charles Manson in prison.

After his debut, his only other physical appearance was in "Cartmanland", in which he attends his grandmother's funeral, however he still made small portrait appearances at Cartman's house in some episodes (unless these pictures are actually a young Eric to whom his cousin bears significant resemblance) and was possibly mentioned in "Le Petit Tourette" by Cartman, who inadvertently tells Butters that he and his cousin have already touched wieners, it is not known if he was referring to Elvin or Fred.


Elvin wears red shoes and has curly dark brown hair. He is almost always seen holding or eating a Fudgsicle, with chocolate smeared across his face. Like most of the other Cartmans, he is obese. When he got smacked by Cartman, one of his eyes went white and started twitching.



Elvin uses catch phrases similar to Cartman, such as "Sweet!" and "Kickass!", but in different context and usually blurted out. When he was struck by Cartman, he was completely silent, looking unconscious, and one of his eyes went white.
