The show revolves around life on a cul-de-sac, focusing on three friends who have nearly identical names: Ed, Edd, and Eddy. Ed is the strongest of the three and the least intelligent, Edd is the smartest and the most socially accepted among others in the cul-de-sac, and Eddy is the de-facto leader of the group and is the meanest of the group. Throughout the show, the trio create numerous scams in order to make money to earn jawbreakers. They also have to deal with numerous misadventures, such as being ostracized from other kids in the cul-de-sac, as well as avoiding the Kanker sisters, who live in a nearby trailer and whom the Eds and the cul-de-sac as a whole despise.

Funnier than I ever anticipated
14 January 2002 | by (In A Confined Space) – See all my reviews

I once hated this show but I decided to give it a chance. I love it because of how much deep thought Danny Antonucci and his cohorts had to put into this. This is a satirical commentary on the lives of kids who are between the ages of 10 and 13. At least one area in every big city has to have kids like this. Every kid in America has at one point has tried to scam money out of someone. Every kid in America has at one point been a bully to the weak or been bullied themselves by the weak. Every kid in America has shown hypocritical to their personality.

The show's basic premise has the three main characters (Ed, Edd, and Eddy) interacting with nine major supporting characters but it doesn't stop there. One of the most revealing aspects of "Ed, Edd, and Eddy" is the interactions between the supporting cast themselves. I remember one episode where the Kanker sisters kidnapped Kevin and tied him to a large wheel. The girls seemed to like Kevin as well as the Ed Boys. Ed released Kevin but the latter decided to be a complete dick and not say give out gratitude to his rescuer. Another episode showed Jonny 2x4 getting pushed down a hill in a tire by Sarah and Kevin. This to me shows that early adolesence is a trying time for all those who are going through it.

Another major aspect of "Ed, Edd, and Eddy" I like are the distinct characters. Every character on that show is well-written so they can have depth and personality. The situations they all get involved may be seriously far-fetched but I think it brings out the best parts of each personality. Each character that was created to portray some sort of typical adolescent personality (eg Eddy is the brainy wimp and Ed is the stupid brawn). Each character has its' own flaws and they are displayed perfectly in each episode they appear.

Possibly the best aspect of "Ed, Edd, and Eddy" in the gritty-like pencil and watercolor animation. It gives you the point of view of actual art that an early adolescent that might create in relation to his life and friends. At that age, artistry of that caliber is well-done and genius. The animation gives you the feel that you are actually in the mind of an early adolescent as they create such a visual landscape.

Overall, I think this a very original premise. It is a satirical look at the lives of twelve distinct characters who are in the stage of early adolescence. Each character's personality and depth are well-written and perfectly thought out. The animation is exceptional because it portrays the idea of superior early adolescent pencil and watercolor artistry. This shows ranks high on my list with "Beavis and Butthead", "Courage the Cowardly Dog", and "The Simpsons" for best animated shows of all time.

Grade: A++, the best show on Cartoon Network
