Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that that the three main characters in this boisterous cartoon series routinely pick on each other and call each other by relatively benign names like "dork" and "loser." They also seem to receive zero adult supervision.

What's the story?

Cartoon Network's ED, EDD N EDDY has a pretty simple premise: It details the multiple plots that three adolescent boys devise to scam their friends for money so they can buy Jawbreakers, their favorite candy. The boys live on a cul-de-sac in suburban Peach Creek Estates. Ed (voiced by Matt Hill), the dim one of the group, is often used as the prop in their schemes, while Edd (Sam Vincent), or "Double D," helps carry out the plans that Eddy (Tony Sampson), the group leader, hatches. In each episode, their plans are foiled, and they end up in a sticky predicament. The boys' hangers-on include Sarah (Janyse Jaud), Ed's annoying little sister; Kevin (Kathleen Barr), the neighborhood bully; Nazz (Erin Fitzgerald), the girl the boys have a crush on; and the Kanker sisters, a trio who consider the Eds their boyfriends.

Is it any good?


Younger viewers will get a kick out of the silly antics of Ed, Edd n Eddy. The series includes violence of the cartoon kind (furniture falls on top of Ed, punches are thrown) and some mild name-calling, but otherwise, it's a harmless half-hour of fun.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about the characters' use of deceit in pursuit of their sugary goal. Is it ever OK to lie? Why is being forthright and honest important? What are some other ways that Ed, Edd, and Eddy could acquire Jawbreakers without taking advantage of their friends?

Good Show!

It's not that violent.. I truly don't see what's wrong with the show. It's one of the funniest cartoons I have ever seen and I have been watching it since 1999. Of course Eddy is a jerk, and Ed is an idiot, yet the show is still very funny, original, and I truly love to see the get rich quick schemes that Eddy has come up with every episode. Overall, it's awesome, and the last episode (movie) showed that the main characters only wanted to be friends with the other children, yet didn't know how to interact with them. Overall, the characters are developed very nicely.

Why Did So Many People Give This a Bad Review?

I love Ed, Edd, and Eddy! It's a great show! My favorite episode is when the Eds make a video for Eddy's older brother to show how much older Eddy was, but all that could go wrong does. A classic Cartoon Network show that everybody should watch at least once in their lifetime.
