Ed, Edd n Eddy is a Canadian-American animated comedy television series created by Danny Antonucci (coincidentally the creator of the infamous MTV show The Brothers Grunt) for Cartoon Network, and the sixth of the network's Cartoon Cartoons. The series revolves around three preteen boys: Ed, Edd "Double D," and Eddy — collectively known as "the Eds"—who live in a suburban cul-de-sac in the fictional town of Peach Creek. Under the unofficial leadership of Eddy, the trio frequently invent schemes to make money from their peers to purchase their favorite confectionery, jawbreakers. Their plans usually fail, leaving them in various, often humiliating, predicaments.
It was one of the most universally praised Cartoon Network shows, but PhantomStrider personally doesn't like the show and personally thinks that the characters are unlikable (Eddy's obnoxious and selfish, Double D's always manipulated by Eddy, Ed's disgusting eating habits get old; while some of the other kids of the Cul-de-Sac are barely likable either — particularly Sarah, Ed's loud-mouthed sister; Kevin, the neighborhood bully; and Johnny, "that stupid plank kid!"), the stories were bland, and the animation wasn't pleasant. He also mentions how he personally found it hard to enjoy, even when it first came out when he was around 10 years old. Although, even he definitely considers it an improvement to Antonucci's last project The Brothers Grunt.
