Based on various episode reviews of "O Brother, Where Bart Thou", Charlie is said to be an unusually sympathetic character for a change, who has a fluid design and for once and sounds like a kid, giving compliments to voice actor, Jordan Nagai. Similar thoughts about Charlie mention that he had an absolutely fantastic design that allowed him to blend in with the rest of the characters seamlessly. Other suggest the his design slightly resembles Fry from Futurama.
The voice acting for his character was extremely well done and made his character feel believable, instead of being distracting. He just seemed like a little kid who was along for the ride and wanted to have fun, despite being a little on the generic side. Others where glad that the writers didn't try to give him a shtick, like him being even worse than Bart. Charlie is also said to be a fun character to have around, which made a lot of people feel bad for him as he was shipped away to six sisters. Charlie's characterization was also good, in that no one never really knew how much he was taking after Bart and what he was capable of.
The plot of the episode Charlie debuted in took a great direction with the Bart/Charlie relationship and some thought Bart's new role as a big brother to a little brother was nice, while others were given a subtle vibe that perhaps Bart may have a bad influence on Charlie, so the ending of Charlie leaving was for the best. However, others feel that Charlie's introduction caused the plot to go downhill.
