I think we actually have seen Peach Creek in the spring before. The particular moment I am referring to is Jonny's flashback in 'Every Which Way But Ed' about how Plank got his chip. My reasoning for this being spring is: it has to have taken place before the summer because Plank had the chip since Season 1, the color of the grass and trees seems less autumnal, and Jonny is wearing a sweater, indicating that the weather has not yet warmed up entirely. Just a theory, though. An ED theory.
Yeah, I like to think of that and possibly the Jimmy flashback as spring. It’s an oddly quiet way to go about it, especially since it’s unclear they knew at the time that there’d never be a spring season.
The Sarah school flashback could pass for spring or winter too, I suppose!
Part of me is incredibly amused by the fact Eddy, who's personality is in large part defined by a veritable cornucopia of insecurities, is totally cool with dressing up like a girl. Whatever gets that quarter in the jar I guess. XD
Hahaha, he’s very contradictory like that but I guess that’s what makes him so real! Half the time he’s very insecure and obsessed with proving manhood, but the other half, he’s totally loose and flexible and into everything.
Can you write an essay/analysis thing about Eddy's cross dressing? That kid has a lot of lady clothes in his closet.
I don’t think that’s something I’d be able to write more than a paragraph about, unfortunately. It seems inspired by classic Looney Tunes/vaudeville— comedic characters who are willing to take any advantage with gusto, even if it’s normally a taboo like dressing in drag. I love Eddy’s crossdressing, but I don’t think he’s ever done it recreationally so all I can get from it is that he’s an extremely comfortable opportunist.
I also like to think Eddy inherited a lot of his costumes from Bro, but I can’t imagine a young Bro being comfortable in drag. Maybe though, it’s hard to rule anything out with that guy.
I always though the "microwave that appears to have balloons in it " was a broken tv set...
Hmm, it still looks like some sort of microwave to me overall, but I can definitely see that being a broken glass screen! The round cracked lines and lack of any other broken prizes in the machine threw me off.
Regarding the movie, are the deleted scenes and alternate endings considered canon? I ask because I believe I read somewhere on this blog that at least one of the alternate endings was really dark, and I'd hate to think the show would have had a dark ending.
Alternate endings aren’t canon at all, they’re just ideas that weren’t seen through. A lot of the other deleted scenes are just helpful emotional cues.
Hi there, Anonymous here. In the review for 18B you said Rolf feels like the fourth Ed. But haven't you said many times in the past that Jonny was the better fourth Ed? Who is worthy? There can be only one.
It’s a tough call. Rolf is actually based on Danny’s life, as are the Eds, so he seems more directly an Ed. Jonny is apparently worthy enough to be the next main character, though, judging from the movie.
Seeing how you recognize the show for its subtle depth and deeper undertones (which I admire and appreciate), I have to know what your initial reactions were when you first saw the movie (mainly the scenes that stand out, i.e. the car chase, the adults on the bus, Edd and Eddy's fight, and the last 8 minutes).
Interesting attempt to have me analyze the highlights of the movie ahead of schedule, haha!
I dont know if youve gotton asked this before but, What are the worst EEnE eps to you?
Everyone knows I refuse to watch ‘Sorry Wrong Ed’, and the last two analyses were episodes I’m not fond of. I used to dislike ‘Your Ed Here’ and most of season 4 because it’s just so focused on making Eddy’s life unliveable. Season 5 also has a few episodes like that, my least favorite being ‘The Good, The Bad and The Ed’. ‘Who’s Minding The Ed?’/’Pick an Ed’ and ‘Tight End Ed’/’Tween a Rock and an Ed Place’ also range between being heavily negative or unusually forgettable.
I've read about Edd's other plant, Al, but I have never seen it on the show before. In what episode could I find it?
The Eds’ rooms don’t really ever change designs (except there’s a door in Eddy’s room that is always materializing and leading to different parts of his house) so just look for one that spends a lot of time in Edd’s room. It’s always the bushy plant closest to his door. One episode that comes to mind is ‘Scrambled Ed’, I think it’s in the shot where Ed kicks a foot through Edd’s door.
Apparently this is the only screenshot I’ve taken of Al so far on this blog, and unfortunately it’s a rare case of the background artists either forgetting to label him or his label facing away from the camera. Neat that Jim made it into this shot too, though! I don’t think there are a lot of shots that show both plants together.
Why is it hard for Cartoon Network to get the Eds voice actors, barring Sampson's retirement?
I think they all still live in Canada. I know it seems like they should just be able to pick up a phone and say their lines, but as far as I’ve figured out, there’s some legal issue preventing it, maybe having to do with unions? I don’t know if anyone in the cast besides Erin Fitzgerald has the papers to work for both Canada and the US.
(If you’re familiar with MLP:FIM, Tara Strong essentially has the same situation as Erin and that’s why most other voices on that show are exclusively Canadian)
