Ed, Edd n Eddy is an animated television series created by Danny
Antonucci and produced by Canada-based a.k.a. Cartoon. It premiered on
Cartoon Network on January 4, 1999, and ended on November 8, 2009 with
the premiere of the series' TV movie finale, Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big
Picture Show. Designed to resemble classic cartoons from the 1940s to
the 1970s, the series revolves around three adolescent boys known as
"the Eds", who constantly invent schemes to make money from their peers
to purchase jawbreakers. Their plans usually fail, leaving them in
various predicaments. Before signing a contract with Cartoon Network,
Antonucci approached Nickelodeon, but the channel demanded creative
control of the show, which Antonucci did not agree to. Several specials,
shorts, and video games either based on the series or featuring the
series' characters have been produced. Viewed from 31 million households
in 29 countries by both children and adults, Ed, Edd n Eddy received
positive reviews and several awards and nominations. It remains the
longest-running original Cartoon Network series and Canadian-made
animated series to date.
