Ed, Edd n Eddy – Canadian Comedy Series
Ed, Edd and Eddy is probably the strangest group of friends in the animated world. Each one of them is totally unlike any of the others and have almost nothing in common. Edd is the smart and logical one, who likes everything to be tidy and in order. Ed is the absolute opposite – a messy fool, who does not even speak properly. Eddy is the self proclaimed leader of the group and the one with the most negative traits – selfish, greedy and mean.
Ed, Edd n Eddy full review
The animated comedy series Ed, Edd, n Eddy made its first appearance in the late nineties on Cartoon Network. The story centers around three boys with Eddy being the leader of the pack. They come together trying to make some money from their peers in order to buy their cherished confectionery, jawbreakers. The team and their plan is almost always met with disappointment as their plans usually fail to materialize and often leave them humiliated.
Similar to the cartoons of the 1970s, the creator of this popular cartoon series in the person of Danny Antonucci was an adult cartoonist and he took the challenge of coming up with something for the children and Ed, Edd n Eddy was the outcome. Danny conceived the idea and approached the cable TV stations Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon but Cartoon Network was able to secure the deal with Antonucci and the series went on to show on Cartoon Network for a decade with the series officially coming to an end in November of 2009.
Ed, Edd, n Eddy is sometimes regarded as the most successful original cartoon series due to its wide acceptability especially as people of all ages could relate with it. Books, comic books, and even video games have been made out of the animated comedy series.
The longest running animated series on the network was able to garner awards some of which include a Reuben Award, a SOCAN Award, and 2 Leo Awards, with several other award nominations. It was shown in over a hundred countries with about 31 million viewers from all age groups.
The boys had a common goal which was to get money from their peers in order to purchase jawbreakers. However, they have different personalities with Edd, also known as Double Dee being the intellectually sound one while Ed was dimwitted and Eddy was the self-imposed leader that oversees and supervises the activities of the team even though the three were disliked by other children.
Another popular character of the series is the Kanker Sisters that were feared by all. Other characters include Sarah, Jimmy, lonely Jonny 2 X 4 and his imaginary friend Plank.
The series is set in the fictional Peach Creek town with four of the seasons being in the summer vacation and the subsequent seasons showed the characters in school during the fall and winter seasons.
The decade long series continues to be a favorite of many cartoon lovers and its characters have made appearances in other works even after the show was ended.
