Belly Surfing

Dr. Floyd pursues Carlo and his friends at the start of episode 7 of Wake Up, Carlo!. When they finally escape, they rejoin Matilde in their search for the Holy Buggy. The Gnogres then appear and introduce themselves. They say they will give Carlo the Holy Buggy and return their Junior Monsters Manual if he wins a belly surfing competition against the Gnogres.

Carlo and his friends agree to participate in the competition. Tatiana initially refuses to participate, but the Gnogres entice her with gold and she agrees. Meanwhile, Dr. Floyd and another of King Blaus’ advisors inform him of Carlo’s fame. At this point, King Blaus realizes the gravity of the situation.

He disguises himself and joins Carlo and his companions in their antics. Meanwhile, Carlo and his friends compete in a belly surfing competition and win.

The Gnogres then present Carlo with another challenge. He is instructed to overcome several obstacles and blend fruits. He not only completes the task, but he also washes the kitchenware and goes about his other responsibilities. The Gnogres are so impressed with him and his friends that they give them the Holy Buggy and the Junior Monsters Manual.

During the final moments of the episode, King Blaus, disguised as a stranger, waits for a bus. Carlo’s friends decide to give him a ride while they are on the road. Carlo falls asleep as the episode comes to a close.


The Episode Review

The episode is both intellectually stimulating and entertaining. At this point, we know that the characters in the show are undoubtedly under the influence of psychedelic substances.

We see Dr. Floyd, who is modelled after Dr. Freud, chasing after the characters. Dr. Freud has a good reputation for his research on the unconscious mind. Dr. Floyd chasing the characters is a metaphor for their unconscious mind catching up with them because they are under the influence. They do, however, manage to get away, implying that they are able to shrug off the harsh reality of their situation.

The episode concludes with Carlo’s friends deciding to give King Blaus a ride. King Blaus is a metaphor for reality. It will be interesting to see how things develop moving forward.
