"I'm a woodpecker! Except with dirt." - Ed

Ed, Edd n Eddy is a Canadian-American TV series that aired on Cartoon Network from 1999 to 2009.

Plot

The show revolves around three boys who all share the name "Edward" who don't get any allowance from their parents so they can't buy Jawbreakers, their favorite candy. Because of that, they spend most of their time coming up with scams to get money from their neighbors, which in turn makes them the most unpopular kids in town.

Why It Rocks

  1. Its animation is fluid.
  2. A catchy theme song.
  3. Effective use of exaggerated sound effects and frequent use of Jazz instruments.
  4. It mirrors the realistic problems that preteens go through while growing up.
  5. The voice acting is good.
  6. Good humor.
  7. The Kanker Sisters are seriously creepy antagonists.
  8. Tons of moments that make the show screamingly funny!

Bad Qualities

  1. The sixth season was a bit unnecessary, as it only had one episode (two if you count the segments).
  2. The show never used a character outside of the main cast until the series finale, Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show.
  3. The character designs haven't aged well.
  4. A few bad episodes, most notably Sorry, Wrong Ed, Your Ed Here and Smile For The Ed, from the later seasons.
  5. Sarah is a very unlikable character.
  6. While being seriously creepy antagonists, the Kanker Sisters also serve as Villain Sues who almost always get away with the horrible things they do to the Eds. This only happens sparingly in the first couple of seasons, but increases to ungodly levels in the later seasons.
