Hello everyone, and today, I want to talk about one of my most cherished childhood shows. That would be Ed Edd n Eddy. This show was about three kids, named Ed, Edd, and Eddy, who were always trying to scam the other kids of the cul-de-sac out of there money, only to fail in the end. The reason I loved this show was because of how real it felt, along with its colorful cast of characters, and well drawn atmosphere, and the witty humor. But, I thought to myself "What are my most favorite episodes"? So, today, I present to you my ten favorite Ed, Edd, n Eddy episodes. And remember, its all my opinion. With that, lets start the list.
10: One + One = Ed - Now, this episode is about where the Eds try to learn more about their world. Of course, they really don't know much until Ed turns a tree into cardboard. After which, weird things start to happen. Ed goes under a road, They walk in the background, Eddy eats the sun, they steal Jimmy's outline, They take Sarah's mouth, Johnny has Plank for a head, and Rolf has three heads. Yeah, its really weird. However, I loved this episode because of its wonderful use of animation, which this style has never been done before, and I love it that way
9: Ed Edd n Eddy's Jingle Jangle Jongle - Now, this was my favorite of the Ed Edd n Eddy specials. It was a Christmas special and it was one of the best written. It starts with Eddy looking at his Christmas presents, only to get a bunch of clothes. So, Eddy decided to put himself up for adoption to get presents. However, that leads to weird results. Like Johnny biting Eddy's nose, Rolf singing a musical number, and Eddy pretending to be a Christmas angel to Jimmy, each with hilarious results. However, as this goes on, Eddy goes from being angry about not getting good presents to just being lonely. After which, he then says how he finally got Christmas spirit, or as others would say, its a Christmas miracle. Then, Satan comes and gives everyone presents.... And then Eddy steals all the presents, which is a crazy twist to the usual Christmas cliches. And also, there is a side plot where the Kanker Sisters follow a glowing light, which this plot is supposed to represent the birth of Jesus and the Star of David... Now, this is good writing. MODERN CARTOON NETWORK WRITERS, TAKE SOME FUCKING NOTES!!!
8: Once Upon an Ed - Now, this is an episode that pretty much gives us a look at how the Eds see things. It starts out with the Eds getting stuck in Johnny's wall, and then they tell Johnny a bed time story. It starts with Eddy, who sees himself as this powerful respected man who is loved by everyone, pretty much mocking them in a way, like Kevin being a monkey, and Sarah screaming everything she says. After that story, Double D's story is next, as he sees the world as a better place, and even has his own jawbreaker bank. And Jimmy actually doesn't wear braces. However, Ed and Eddy are shown as savages that Double D has to deal with day in and day out, always trying to talk sense into them. After that, we get Ed's story, which is probably the most entertaining. It starts with the Kanker Sisters eating radiated mashed potato's and turning into monsters. This one shows Double D speaking nonsense, Eddy screaming insults, Kevin only saying Dork, and other such stuff. And this just uses so much of Eds crazy humor that I can sum it all up in one of Eddy's quotes. Ed, your stories getting weird. Weird, yes, but thats why I love it
7: Who Let the Ed In - Now, this episode really shows us some good childhood innocence. It starts with Ed playing with his imaginary friend, Jib. So, Eddy decided's to play for laughs with this for a while. However, it soon shows how Jib becomes a problem for Eddy's scams as Ed tells everyone that Jib says its all just a scam, which really angers Eddy. Soon, Eddy snaps, believing that Jib is real and tries to catch him. The results are hilarious. After Eddy tries to catch him, Jib beats Eddy to a pulp in amazing cartoon fashion. Not a lot to say about this episode, other then, it was wonderful to watch
6: The Day the Ed Stood Still - Now, this is a show that really knows how to use a more serious conflict. Ed Edd n Eddy rarely uses serious conflicts, but when it does, you get results like this episode. The episode starts with the Ed's trying to make a small carnival, only to have Ed wreck it because he wants to be a monster. So, Eddy decided's to use this to his advantage and Double D gives Ed a monster costume. However, Ed gets so in to the costume that he becomes an actual monster and starts terrorizing the cul-de-sac. I think the best moment was how they kept the appearance of the monster a secret until it reached the episodes climax. Here, we get a good look at the monster, which I think is well drawn. So, after Eddy and Double D try to stop Ed, they head to his home where he has all the kids hanging from the wall by chewed up Chunky Puffs. I can't tell weather to laugh or find that gross. But, in the end, it is a great episode over all
5: Tight End Ed - Now, this was one of the later season episodes. Not that they were bad, just that it was a sign that Ed Edd n Eddy was coming to an unfortunate close. But, this episode was still wonderful. It starts with all the boys practicing for football. Now, before I continue, I have to say I'm not a big sports fan. Sorry, but its true. Also, I'm usually the kind of guy who will skip shows that are about sports. However, this episode was so funny that I decided to watch it anyway. Here, Ed later becomes the mascot for his team. And since Eddy sees this as a way to make him better, he tries to steal Ed's spotlight, only to fail... several times. Meanwhile, the team is getting beaten badly by the opposing team, and they lose in the end, but Ed still tries to be happy all the way through, and he still makes us all laugh
4: Out With the Old, In With the Ed - Now, here is an episode most fans have been dreading since day one of the show... The Eds going back to school. Actually, the episode was well written and I loved it. It starts with Double D practicing getting ready for school, in amazing cartoon fashion, I might add. However, it shows that it is July, and the kids are still enjoying summer. IT is then shown that Eddy used all sorts of machines, like a weather machine to produce summer heat and a machine to make bird noises. He even painted every last leaf green. Soon, a storm comes and it shows that it is not summer, but rather fall. And the kids are not prepared for school tomorrow. So, they do what the kids would normally do. Break down Double D's door with a battleaxe and take his school supplies. And yes, it is funny. So, Ed and Eddy try to keep summer alive, but no one else seems to care. After which, they get to school and we see Rolf is very glum. Kind of like me on the first day of school. But, another problem emerges. The Eds are assigned separate homerooms. So, they strike a deal with the Kanker Sisters to get the same homeroom, but only if they embarrass themselves in front of the other kids. Now, this episode is well shown as something we were all dreading, but it shows to not be much of a problem. Now, that is good writing right there. HEY, MODERN CARTOON NETWORK WRITERS!!! YOU TAKING NOTES YET!!!
3: They Call Him Mr. Ed - Now, this is an episode that also uses childhood innocence, as it shows the Eds making a fake business. It starts with Eddy telling ed and Double D that they want to go "up". So, they make a business, and in the background, you can see Ed adding to the elevator then entire episode. That there is good humor. Soon, the other kids come by and are interested in the business and ask to join. Soon, it is all ruined right after Eddy accidently uses the word "Pay" and all the kids quit. Here, it shows a business that is going downhill fast and how the business tries to go "up", like the Eds going up the elevator. And they went up alright. All the way up to the moon, and goddamn, its funny
2: Button Your Ed - Now, this episode really knows how to use humor. It starts with Eddy losing his voice by having a fly get lodged in his voice box. So, Ed and Double D give Eddy a bell to communicate with them. They then run into Rolf, who agrees to help them, which results in doing stuff Eddy doesn't want to do. Like feeding him a squid, swimming, freezing Eddy in his room, and even preforming the Unicycle of Doom, which has Eddy get shot from a giant slingshot ridding a unicycle. I like how the jazz music in the background greatly uses this to show how Eddy's temper is at the moment. Still, if you want a good laugh, this episode knows how to do it.
1: Take This Ed and Shove It - Now, this episode is my favorite for many reasons. Other then the movie, this episode is the darkest that Ed Edd n Eddy has ever gotten. It starts with the Eds selling Balloon Poochies, which fails as the kids find it to childish for them. This then shows the Eds realizing that the kids are growing up. So, Eddy uses this to his advantage, like many times before, and decides to give the kids there own career tests, and with that, they earn enough money and celebrate by buying jawbreakers. However, the kids actually believe in the test results and actually take the career's. So, Nazz, being a dentist, locks the jawbreakers in a drawer. After they distract her, they take the desk and take it back home, to try and open it. After which, Eddy gets in a huge accident and then, he realizes he's old. HE then sees that all the kids are old. Like One hundred and nineteen years old. So, Eddy believe's that if they are able to get the jawbreakers out and eat them, they will be young again. So, Ed tries to break it open, in a very comedic way. However, once Eddy comes back, the jawbreakers are turned to dust, and Eddy starts having a mental breakdown. After word, Eddy wakes up and finds out it was all a dream... Then, Eddy wakes up again as an old person and realizes he and everyone else really is old, and thats how the episode ends. Now, I love this episode, because it shows how an adult can still have a childhood innocence and can still experience that same innocence again, which this episode does well, and it stays true to its young audience, but is also being mature to its adult audience, who can have memories of their childhood, by watching this episode, and that is why it is my favorite Ed Edd n Eddy episode ever.
So, there it is. My top ten favorite episodes of Ed Edd n Eddy. Did you agree. Which episode did you want to see. Tell me below if you like. With that, I will see you all next time
