Summary of TV ShowEd, Edd n Eddy is a Canadian-American animated comedy television series created by Danny Antonucci and produced by Canada-based a.k.a. Cartoon. It premiered on Cartoon Network on January 4, 1999. The series was designed to resemble classic cartoons from the 1940s to the 1970s, and revolves around three adolescent boys collectively known as "the Eds", who live in a suburban cul-de-sac. Unofficially led by Eddy, the Eds constantly invent schemes to make money from their peers to purchase their favorite confectionery, jawbreakers. Their plans usually fail, leaving them in various predicaments.
Before signing a contract with Cartoon Network, Antonucci approached Nickelodeon with the show, but the channel demanded creative control of the show, which Antonucci did not agree to. During the show's run on Cartoon Network, several specials and shorts were produced in addition to the regular television series, as well as two books. Several comic books or video games either based on the series or featuring the series' characters have been produced. The series' TV movie finale, Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show aired on November 8, 2009, officially ending the series.
Ed, Edd n Eddy received generally positive reviews from critics. The show attracted an audience of 31 million households, was broadcast in 30 countries, and was popular among children and adults. It received several awards and nominations during its 10-year run and remains the longest-running original Cartoon Network series and Canadian-made animated series to date, as well as the eighth longest-running United States animated series.
