A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
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.

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?
