A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Positive Messages

The characters routinely scheme to relieve peers of their money, but their plots inevitably fail.

Violence & Scariness

There is harmless cartoon violence: furniture crushes characters, punches are thrown, etc.

Sexy Stuff

Insults such as "dork" are used.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What 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.

Watch out for a Copy Cat

We had an issue regarding our son copying some of the violence and repeating some of the language. Parents should be careful when letting a child view this uns... Continue reading

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.

Talk to your kids 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?
