Rolf could have worked in that storyline as a third wheel that keeps getting in the way of Kevin and Nazz's romance. Another good possibility, I think, would have Rolf, Jonny, and Jimmy try to track the Eds down as the Urban Rangers with Sarah tagging along.

Oh yeah, that too.  The Urban Rangers wouldn’t add MUCH for me personally, especially since they got an unusual 3 appearances out of season 5, but I always thought it’d make sense to include every anti-Eds group in a movie.  Not a big complaint, though, because the Urban Rangers act like different characters and it makes sense to focus on the cores of the characters in a movie.

I realized how one of the common complaints of "It Smells like an Ed" is that none of the other kids get punished. But if you think about it they actually did. Jimmy tied up johnny and covered him in candy. Rolf was being used as a scapegoat (and will probably get cavities from all that candy haha), and Nazz and Kevin were abused in the eds attempts to find evidence.

Yep, I always felt like it was a pretty even episode.

I can't help but feel disappointed that Rolf didn't go along with Kevin and Nazz in BPS. I keep thinking about all the possibilities. Rolf could have learned to respect Nazz more as a person instead of just being an add-on for Kevin, Rolf could have kept Kevin in check and called him out on his selfishness, they could have strengthened themselves as a trio and learned to understand each other better.

Yeah I think everything would have turned out better (more deleted scenes making it in, better closure and character development for non-Eds) if Rolf had gone with Kev and Nazz instead of having his own relatively uneventful subplot.  I think it would’ve been even better to have the kids all travel together, but I appreciate A LOT that the Jonny+Plank/Sarah+Jimmy+Kankers subplots keep the movie grounded in familiar Peach Creek locations for a little longer, and I love how Sarah and Jimmy kept intersecting with the other subplots.  But still, it’s a little sloppy that they all just kinda drop off the story before sundown and then don’t come back until the next morning.  NOTHING of interest happened during that nearly-a-day of off-screen traveling?

Hmm, I know BPS could mean Kevin and Nazz "broke up" but I don't feel it was the end of their friendship, just the end of their romantic feelings for each other. Before Season 5 they were close friends for a seemingly long time, so I wouldn't be surprised if they resolved the bike conflict. They all get along as a group at the end so maybe all is forgiven for every character, and Kevin being bike-less could help him take his relationships with his friends more seriously.

Like I said in the last ask, it’s a balance shift.  We don’t know anything about Kevin’s new life, but going off the last scene of the movie, it seemed like Nazz was avoiding direct conversation with Kevin and had lost respect for him.  Rolf similarly seemed to never be talking directly to Kevin and felt the need to force Kevin to do the right thing, although Rolf still was polite enough to untie Kevin.

It seems like Kev/Rolf/Nazz felt a lack of closure from their stories but were trying to hide it to save face in front of the rest of the cast.  Maybe the Eds can glue them back together?

Rolf lost respect for Kevin in Season 5? I thought their friendship seemed stronger in Season 5...I'm probably forgetting something crucial.

'Boom Boom…' makes Kev/Rolf seem stronger by being the only episode to hinge on their relationship, but that episode and most other appearances of Kev/Rolf have to do with them getting on each other's nerves.  As the series goes on, we see more and more of what Rolf and Nazz don't like about Kevin and they get gradually more vocal (especially with all of them in 'May I Have This Ed').  A big one for me was always the subtle inclusion of Kevin blowing off Rolf for Nazz in 'Cool Hand Ed' and Rolf responding as if this has been an on-going conflict.

I don’t think any friendships are truly over but I think the balance has shifted, and Nazz and Rolf are now in main control of the cul-de-sac (or the Eds are.. maybe).

I felt like Eddy wanted to be friends with Kevin, to a degree. They had their rivalry above all else, but there were times where Eddy spoke nicely to Kevin when he had nothing to gain (like in It Came From Outer Ed, he sincerely thanked Kevin for complimenting him) and they got along great in Pick an Ed and had fun together in some other episodes, like One of Those Eds and Little Ed Blue, but each time Kevin would throw it back in his face. I WANT to think they'd get along nicely post-BPS.

Yeah, Eddy has apparently always been eager to forgive, and Kevin’s attempt to make up for everything certainly seems genuine on his end.  But I feel like Kevin’s anxiety could come back soon and cut him off from everyone, since nothing good can come from Nazz (and Rolf through season 5) losing respect for Kevin and Kevin being cut off from his bike.  He’d have a totally different life after BPS and that seems like the sort of disruption that typically sends Kevin into a spiral.

Eddy and Mabel Pines become a couple in the new season of Gravity falls!!!

i wonder if the Pines twins would be the same height as Eddy….

Hi, I’m Kevin Lordi!  I make cartoons and analyze Ed, Edd n Eddy and made Bro Show on Youtube.  I’ve just been laid off from my job today and although I’m looking for another job, I’d love to be able to support myself with my passion for animation instead.  If you’re interested in seeing more original cartoons from me, keeping me alive, or helping fund 19 more episodes of Bro Show (in much higher quality), this is the time and I’d really appreciate it.  Thank you. :)

Bringing this back because I just put up the rough animatic for the Patreon Video!  Once there’s a finished video, the animatic will be Patrons Only (and later animatics are specifically part of the $10 perk).  There’s stuff that doesn’t quite work that’ll need to be changed one way or another for the final version, but if you just wanted to see that Bro animatic from the other day or a reel of my old stuff, now’s your chance!

If’n anyone’s interested in my animations/keeping me alive to do more analyses, there’s an animatic of my Patreon video up right now with a brief history on who I am and also a goofy scene at the end with Eddy’s Brother!  The actually animated version will be EVEN BETTER.

On the subject of "Pick an Ed", wasn't Double D a little...disturbing in that episode? I mean, the entire episode was pretty disturbing to watch, and Eddy WAS being a jerk to he and Ed, but it seemed like he went through pretty cruel lengths to get the three of them back together. Part of me wonders if he was trying to make a point of how fickle the kids are, and another wonders if he would just go through any lengths to keep their close-knit group together. (Maybe both?)

It did feel a little off, but not really disturbing since all Edd had to do was write names on a wall (and the cut ending confirms that Edd didn’t write the original Eddy insult).  It’s confusing that Edd could be mad at Eddy all the time but still want to trick Eddy into staying his friend/not being a nice person, but it’s something complicated about Edd that comes up in other stories (encouraging Eddy to scam in ‘Stuck in Ed’ or that comic ‘Retir-Ed’ even though Edd often complains that scams are beneath him). 

I think the point is that underneath his family-enforced morals, Edd (less and less secretly, the deeper in the series we get) looks up to Eddy’s nonconformist approach to life and tries to apply it to his own plans (like this graffiti trick), and is quick to stop Eddy from abandoning his entire identity.  Maybe Edd always remembers how nice (yet still himself) Eddy was in season 1, just as I do, and uses that alone as motivation to not give up on solving this moral dilemma.  Edd enjoyed that personality and believes he can be satisfied with the Eds if they get back to that.  Does that make sense?  Is that too much?  I’m not sure.

If you know them, could give me the names of those two episodes you mentioned (one from Flapjack and one from Rugrats) in which characters pretend to be one another?

Flapjack was ‘Shut It!’ (Flap and K’nuck pretend to be each other with weird masks) and Rugrats was ‘Twins Pique’ (Phil pretends to be Chuckie and Lil pretends to be Angelica).
