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