Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show
Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show is an animated television film based on the cartoon series Ed, Edd n Eddy.
After an Ed scam went too far, the Eds embark on a cross-country trip to find Eddy's brother and get away from the rest of the Cul-De-Sac kids hunting them down.
Why It Rocks
- The story is fantastic.
- This movie was made to celebrate a decade of Ed, Edd n Eddy back in 2009 and was a great conclusion to the TV series.
- Nicely done voice acting.
- The animation is great.
- The ending song, "Friends Are There To Help You" (from If It Smells Like an Ed), is a great one.
- The adventure scenes are mildly packed with chases in the best amount of action in Cartoon Network.
- Good writing.
- Really great music and soundtrack.
- It brings out the same charm as the actual show as it was still fresh for over ten years during its run on Cartoon Network and Teletoon.
- The jokes are hilarious.
- For the first and only time in the series, a character outside of the main cast appears, as we finally get to see Eddy's older brother.
- His appearance also explains why Eddy is the selfish, unlikable jerk that he was in the later seasons of the show.
- The Eds FINALLY befriend the rest of the cul-de-sac.
- Ed does something smart by unhanding the door Eddy was holding onto to defeat Eddy's brother.
- Eddy finally learns to grow up.
- After being Villain Sues throughout all six seasons, the Kanker Sisters finally break out of that mold and actually protect the Eds from the other kids during the journey.
- There are few callbacks to older episodes. For example, in one scene Ed gets electrocuted and he turns into various forms and costumes that he had over the course of the show (like Fish Ed, 1920s Ed, Old Man Ed, Etc).
- Excessive amount of filler in some scenes.
- Double D's hat comes off in one scene, but we don't actually see what's under it. This annoyed some fans since they thought this being the finale, it would finally answer their questions. Some even claimed that Antonucci lied because he said the movie would reveal what was under Double D's hat (This is actually not true. He actually said the movie might reveal what was under Double D's hat, not that it would).
- The fans were pleased by the ending, but many were upset that they couldn't hear the post-credit roll scene with Jonny and Plank becoming villains due to it being overshadowed by a commercial. However, later US airings of the movie featured the scene in full, unobstructed by commercials.
The film was a success in the ratings for Cartoon Network, posting double and triple digit ratings delivery gains and was met with positive reception. It was also released on the iTunes Store.
Fans of the show considered it a fitting and satisfying conclusion to the series.
