This article is about Bolt's chew toy. For the character in question, see Bolt (character).
Mr. Carrot is the name of one of the characters from the 2008 hit animated feature Bolt. He is Bolt’s rubber chew toy, an orange carrot with a simple smiley face.
This character is first seen at the Animal Rescue Center in the beginning of the movie. It can be assumed that Bolt was given the toy to play with while he was taken care of at the center and he quickly grew attached to it.
Mr. Carrot does not develop much in the movie and shows no particular characteristics as his role in the movie was not as central as other characters; however, it may have something to do with him being a squeaky toy.
Mr. Carrot is Bolt’s favorite toy and has been from early puppy-hood onward, making him one of the hero’s more intimate childhood friends. Mr. Carrot also holds a distinguished emotional value for Bolt—reminding him of times he has shared with Penny. At the conclusion of the film, Bolt is still seen playing with Mr. Carrot after settling down in Penny's house after his great adventure.
Mr. Carrot was generally well met by critics—cited as both a funny and deep character. Some critics have criticized the carrot's notable lack of dialogue throughout the film, however, general consensus favors the silent depth of his character over the obtrusive and poorly written Rhino.
Penny is the only character to call Mr. Carrot by his name.
