Charlie is the Eldritch Abomination.Or perhaps was would be more appropriate, when he was on the verge of destroying the universe he was stopped somehow and placed in the weird alternate world where he is tormented by those two beings and he has no access to his old powers or memories. To put it simply, what Charlie said in episode three was not that far off.
Charlie is undergoing a kidney transplant or kidney removal during the first videoIt explains why his kidney got taken away. As for the pink and blue unicorns, leopluderon, and Candy Mountain... Well, it was probably the anesthesia.
The pink and blue unicorn are working for the Genetic Opera.It explains why Charlie got his kidney taken away at the end of the first video. He couldn't keep up his payments for the genetic opera, so Rotti Largo had the pink and blue unicorns lure Charlie to Candy Mountain to take away his kidney for falling behind on his payments.
Charlie is a test subject of GLaDOS.The forest is Apeture Science and the pink and blue unicorns are scientists studying Charlie for science. It also explains why there was no candy inside of Candy Mountain - The candy was a lie.
Charlie is insane.By the standards of this world we're seeing, Pink and Blue are perfectly normal inhabitants, it's Charlie who is out of his mind. We are seeing the world through his eyes, so - even though time travel and random portals are a normal occurrence, random things which serve mysterious purposes are all over the place, and the Blehblehbleh are real and dangerous creatures - to Charlie, they're as strange as we believe them to be.
Charlie is in Limbo.When we see Charlie wake up in the first Charlie the Unicorn video, it can be interpreted that Charlie is asleep and is several dream levels down, implying that he's in Limbo. The pink and blue unicorns can be seen as either his projections of his subconscious or fellow unicorns sharing the same dream as him. It also seems implied that whatever he sees in the video series (the Liopleurodon, the Banana King, etc.) are his enemy projections, and the only way to defeat them is if he does whatever the pink and blue unicorns say to do.
Charlie died long ago, and the other two are his eternal punishment."You're like a constant downer, huh?" Hey, it's not like they denied it.
Charlie's two friends are Reality Warpers with overactive imaginations.They float, they go through time, they keep him alive underwater, and they generally cause impossible things to happen on an almost-constant basis. The fact that they keep screwing with poor Charlie is just a fringe benefit.
Charlie's friends are a pair of Eldritch Abominations.Similar to the above one, but more extreme: the blue and pink unicorn are a pair of sadistic Outer Gods or such who treat Charlie as their designated plaything for the hell of it. They may or may not have created him for this express purpose.
The pink and blue unicorns are Pink and Blue Horrors of Tzeentch.
The other two unicorns are not the ones stealing things from Charlie.They are being manipulated by a higher power. They bring Charlie to the places for the reasons they state because they believe it to be so. The manipulator is the one who brings forth the singing creatures before making them explode because he likes to annoy Charlie. The manipulator needs Charlie's stuff for some reason to be revealed later.
Charlie is high as a kite.The cartoons are his drug-induced hallucinations. By the time he sobers up, he's forgotten that he sold his kidney and belongings for drugs.
The series is a metaphor for growing up and losing your innocence.Charlie has "grown up", and views the other unicorns, who are "children" as infantile or downright creepy. Red and Blue act like little children, trying to get him to stop being grumpy and join in with the silliness and "make believe". The songs are so cheery and Disney it hurts. It kind of falls flat when you consider the stealing stuff, but maybe that's part of the game...
The Snowman at the end of Charlie the Unicorn 3 is a Weapon of Mass DestructionYou see, Charlie can see things normal humans can't see. So can Red and Blue but I doubt they're "normal." Anyway, Charlie can see these thing because of some sort of allele in his genes, making his body parts... different. So Red and Blue take his body and use them to make the Snowman alive and convince the Snowman to destroy the world.
Charlie is the reincarnated form of Joe from Detective Mittens.When Joe was killed by the titular character in Detective Mittens: The Crime Solving Cat, he was either reincarnated into Charlie (whilst retaining his personality), and/or acended into a higher plane, turning into a unicorn form - Charlie. Due to being killed by a cat, Joe/Charlie became a bit more of a Deadpan Jerkass, and a lot more suspicious - hence why he's so reluctant to go with the other two unicorns, in case it causes him bodily harm or getting killed again.
Charlie himself is the reality warper and he's a giant masochist.Or he's just trapped in a schizophrenia-induced Hell.
Charlie the Unicorn and Planet Unicorn take place on the same planet.
All three unicorns are reality warping cosmic horrors, but Charlie is living in his own dream world. The other two are trying to wake him up so they can prevent the End of The Universe.
All the characters except Charlie are True FaeThis explains everything. Every character except Charlie seems to have tremendous and terrifying cosmic powers. Their motivations are utterly unknowable to normal people. Charlie has no obvious powers, and he is surprised/frightened whenever something out of the ordinary happens (like flying, or breathing underwater). Obviously, Charlie was once human, but he somehow found his way into the Land of the Fae, and he was... changed.
The whole world is the Liopleurodon's imaginationThat's why it's psychic, because it is making everything up.
Charlie is constantly playing the most high-stakes version of The Game possible.True to form, he always loses, too.
Charlie is trapped in an artificial reality and all the weirdness brought on by the pair is the result of two children trying to make him realize the truth.It's just that they don't know how to do it properly and they're probably too ADHD to keep to any plans.
Pink and Blue are part of a Hive MindListen carefully. They have the exact same voice.
The whole show is a parody of idealistic children's television.Imagine the same show, but without Charlie. See?
Charlie isn't a unicorn at all, but human.Two options:
The two unicorns are one being, whose true form was seen in the third episode.As noted above, they have the same voice. Their motives seem to be the same, as well. Perhaps they are one being, who disguises itself as two unicorns. It is, of course, an Eldritch Abomination. Now, while some abominations may never show their true shape, as giving it a form would inevitably be a letdown, this one manifested fully at the beginning of the third episode, and it did not disappoint. To quote Charlie, "That was the scariest thing I've ever seen."
Pink and Blue are Time Lords and Charlie is their Tardis
Charlie is an older brother being forced to play with his younger siblings.It seems to this troper that Charlie has the characteristics of an older (and I mean 10 years or so) brother who has been ripped away from whatever he planned to do that day, and is sat down by his parents or whoever to play with his little brothers/sisters/whatever those two are. If you listen to his tone of voice, he seems very annoyed when interacting with the two, but seems to voice genuine concern when they are missing, as any responsible brother would. The little siblings' view of the world is very skewed, but not exactly naive (in the same way that some children aren't) which causes them to make up nonsensical ideas for games and their avatars (unicorn toys) move erratically as one being played with. Charlie, meanwhile, is more grounded in reality, and moves his toy like a real horse would move, and looks upon the stories with distaste. Of course, by the time playtime ends, whatever Charlie intended to do that day is long gone, which is represented by being constantly mugged/robbed, as his younger siblings are somewhat warped.
Charlie is Carl from Aqua Teen Hunger ForceVariations on the same name, similar voices and speech patterns, both relatively normal if sarcastic guys who end up suffering due to the the constant weirdness others bring about...yup, I think we've got a winner.
The whole thing is a child's game, and everyone and everything are their toysThink about it. Weird mixture of different creatures, random giant letters, giant shoes used as transport- all things often used in a small child's game with their toys.
The entire "Charlie the Unicorn" franchise is one of Charlie Barkin's hellish nightmares from All Dogs Go to HeavenCome on, I can't be the only one who expects every "Chaaaaar-lieeeee" to be followed by "You can NEVER come baaack!"
Dr. Z from "Bino the Elephant" created the llamas with hats, and then he created the two unicorns. The unicorns mistook his wife for a man, explaining the bit in the second video where they say, "The man with the hat sent us"
Charlie and his 'friends' are what happens at the end of Red vs. BluePainfully, and over the course of many seasons, Church from Rv B gathers the AI’s, aspects of the original AI, himself. When complete, he has all the powers associated with each of the broken AIs, and becomes an artificial God on Earth. However, since he is now pure AI, he needs someone to work with. Blinded by the lust of power, the two armies of Red and Blue duke it out, attempting to gain control of Church. However, only Caboose and Donut, being how they are, refuse to fight, leaving them the last men standing. Choosing Caboose, due to their relative closeness as friends, Church partners himself with his teammate, giving Caboose near-unlimited power. Saddened by the loss of their friends, Caboose summons aspects of their personalities (according to his view, never too accurate) and condenses them into a single form, and as a joke, makes it a unicorn, blue in colour. He does the same for the red team, giving the resulting unicorn over to Donut, who insists it must be ‘Lightish-red.’ Dividing his power between his new creations, this leaves the distraught Church drained of his power’s and sanity. As condolences, Caboose creates a final, white unicorn, leaving Church, always the Only Sane Man to inhabit his new body. The rest is history.
The pink and blue unicorns have No Biological Sex
Charlie is a Magical Robot Unicorn prototype.He wasn't "magical" or "robot" enough, and was cast into Unicorn Purgatory to be forever tormented.
Charlie The Unicorn and Llamas with Hats are related to each other, and may eventually have a crossover.As mentioned earlier and in the main page, in the second video, the unicorn say, "The man with the hat sent us! He told us many amazing stories!" If you look closely, then Carl could be the whole reason why this is even taking place. Being the sadistic sociopath that he is, he's probably the one to tell Pink and Blue what exactly to do, leading Charlie into these places, so that he could steal one of his objects. Carl could even possibly being the one to send these two to torment Charlie, since he's busy in the real world making everyone's lives miserable. Alternatively, the man telling them these "amazing stories" could be Paul, telling them all about Carl.
As An Alternative to an above theory, Charlie is the robot unicorn.
Pink and Blue are in cahoots with Carl
The pink and blue unicorns are Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash, respectively.In "Griffon the Brush Off", they are seen playing pranks on other ponies. Although we don't see them do it again in the series, they never stopped, and eventually found Charlie.
Charlie is being possessed by the biomass in the Kremlin from Metro 2033Charlie was a normal American tourist who was just enjoying Moscow when a nuke dropped. He managed to survive by hiding in the Metro tunnels. Confused and afraid, he gathers equipment so he can go to The Kremlin and see if there is any government still alive. He then went into the basement and the biomass took control. The usual method of making control of the person (The Fantasy World, Pink and Blue) usually worked with other people (They just went along with it) but the chemicals needed for the whole euphoria part don't work on Charlie's brain, causing him to realize how absurd the whole fantasy was.
The Pink Unicorn is a Girl, the Blue One is a BoySimple, but still a guess. One's a girl, one's a guy, not two guys or two girls.
One of the llamas is the man with the hat who sent them.
Everyone explodes when they sing to Charlie because he doesn't heed the message of their songs.They're some sort of messengers trying to lead Charlie to his ultimate destiny but explode when they fail in their missions.
Charlie possesses a magical power that causes things that sing in his presence to explode.While this would be a pretty useless power in our world, in the series' setting where people are always singing it's a Game Breaker. Charlie himself doesn't realize this, but Pink and Blue are taking advantage of it to wipe out all of their enemies.
