{{Infobox Television Template:Infobox Television }} Rugrats is an animated television series that ran on Nickelodeon and it was one of the first three Nicktoons: after Doug and before Ren & Stimpy.

Contents

Premise[]

The show revolves around four toddlers, Tommy Pickles, Chuckie Finster and the twins Phillip (Phil) and Lillian (Lil) DeVille, who are able to communicate to each other in baby speak (although viewers can understand them, because it is supposedly 'translated'). Often, they mispronounce words or use poor grammar. Despite the toddlers' inability and lack of desire to communicate with adults, they can understand their parents' speaking, although they often misunderstand what they hear, usually by taking metaphors literally and speaking in malapropisms. Angelica Pickles, at age three, is able to communicate and understand language from both the toddlers and the adults, which she often uses as an advantage when she wants to manipulate either party.


Ed, Edd n Eddy is a Canadian/American animated television series created by Danny Antonucci and produced by a.k.a. Cartoon for Cartoon Network. The series, which was Cartoon Network's sixth Cartoon Cartoon, was first aired in 1999. Originally, there were only going to be four seasons; however, Cartoon Network ordered two more, giving the series a total of six seasons.[1] It is currently the longest-running original cartoon on Cartoon Network.

Production[]

The series revolves around three preadolescent boys: Ed, who is slow-witted and often speaks in non sequiturs; Edd, who is usually called "Double D" and is rather intelligent, if high-strung; and Eddy, the avaricious 'leader' of the trio. Collectively known as "the Eds," the three hang around in their suburban neighborhood of Peach Creek Estates, where "the cul-de-sac" is located. Led by Eddy, the Eds scheme to make money off their peers to buy jawbreakers, but their plans usually fail, leaving them in various predicaments. The characters rarely leave the neighborhood, and no adults are ever seen. It was the network's second Nicktoon. The series was in production from 1991 to 1994, and again from 1996 to 2004. It aired in Nickelodeon's Snick block from 1997-2000 and it also aired on Nick Jr's block. It is the longest lasting Nicktoon to date at thirteen years of longevity. Rugrats received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in a ceremony on June 28, 2001.

The show airs in the UK on CITV and Nickelodeon UK as well as in Canada on YTV. In Australia, it can be seen on Nickelodeon Australia.


After the introduction of SpongeBob SquarePants, popularity for Rugrats declined. The Rugrats never had a rival this strong in popularity (many shows were produced during the Rugrats lifetime, but none were as successful as SpongeBob SquarePants). In order to keep its popularity, the studios released several movies and specials, such as the introduction of Dil Pickles and Kimi Finster. Ironically, after these introductions, fans determined that Rugrats jumped the shark.

When Nickelodeon declined to renew any more new episodes of Rugrats and All Grown Up, Klasky-Csupo (the studios responsible for Rugrats) closed down most of its operations. At the time of their cancellation, those series were the only Klasky-Csupo series on the Nickelodeon schedule.

Characters[]

Overview[]

Main article: List of Rugrats characters


Ed, Edd n Eddy was animated wholly using traditional cel animation. Most cartoons are now animated using digital ink and paint. The use of painted cels lasted up to the end of the fourth season. Though the show is still entirely hand-drawn, all cels are colored digitally, since no animation studios paint cels anymore. It is the last major cartoon to use painted cels. Template:Fact

Episodes[]

Ed, Edd n Eddy uses a moderated version of Squigglevision. The crawling lines are not nearly as active as those in Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, but are still visible. Much of the unfavorable press that Ed, Edd n Eddy received has been because of this animation technique. However, Danny Antonucci calls it a "wobble" effect, and likens it to cartoons of the 1930s where the film tended to be unstable and cause a similar effect.[2]

Main article: List of Rugrats episodes


There is a strong theme of vagueness in the series, including the setting and deeper facts about the children. The show revolves solely around the Eds, the other cul-de-sac children, and the Kanker sisters. There are no hints as to where the cartoon takes place. Little is known about any other people in the town and if they even have any type of relation to the regular characters of the series, other than the fact that Ed is Sarah's older brother.

The show frequently makes meta-references and often breaks the fourth wall. Almost every episode contains references to pop culture, especially movies. All the episode titles, except for the holiday specials, are popular sayings with a word replaced with the word Ed (for example, "Stop, Look, and Ed": Stop, Look, and Listen.) Some are also parodies of movie titles (e.g., "For Your Ed Only" = For Your Eyes Only, "The Day the Ed Stood Still" = The Day the Earth Stood Still, "O-Ed's Eleven" = Ocean's Eleven, "Mission Ed-possible = Mission Impossible).

Setting[]

The number of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy is fixed at twelve. No other characters have appeared besides the main cast and adults are never seen. Danny Antonucci has stated that he wanted the show to appeal to any generation. If a VCR is needed in a plot, it is there. In the first episode, Edd used a computer to give Jonny a lie detector test, powered through a toaster. The kids do not have any current modern day technology items such as iPods, Game Boys, PDAs, or mobile phones. Rolf's TV has 4 channels, and Ed's TV has a rabbit ear antenna.

Jawbreakers[]

  • Australia


The most coveted treat in the show, especially among the Eds, is the jawbreaker. A majority of episodes have used the Eds' quest for jawbreakers as the plot or a sub-plot device. The jawbreakers in the show are noticeably oversized and thus larger than a kid's head. Kids enjoying jawbreakers will have characteristic bowling ball-sized bulges on one side of their cheeks.

According to the interview with Antonucci (a special feature of the Season 1 DVD set), the characters were based on people in his life. The personalities of Ed, Edd, and Eddy are based on personal traits of himself, and their activities on his two sons. The cul-de-sac kids were based on people he grew up with. Antonucci also stated that he believed it was important to add Plank to the show, stating that he "thought it would be really cool to do the show with Plank taking on a character of his own" and to cause Jonny to do things he would usually never do.[4] He also stated that Rolf is strongly based on himself and his cousins, since he was part of an immigrant family, and grew up in a first generation foreign household with different customs and ways of living compared to those born in Canada.[5] In a podcast Cartoon Network interview, Antonucci also hinted the Kanker sisters being based off of someone from his personal life, as well.

Critical reaction[]

The reaction to Ed, Edd n Eddy is varied. Terrence Briggs of Animation World Magazine argued that every second of the show is "filler" and that the main characters are drawn as "products from the school of acid-trip caricature."[8]

After the review was published, support letters of the show started to pile up at Animation World Magazine's website. This made the magazine write a more positive review of Ed, Edd n Eddy, calling it a "fresh show with very different approaches."[9]


Other works[]

Ed, Edd and Eddy look-alikes in Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends

There have been other produced works in which the Eds would appear than just their regular series airings. An oft used style by Cartoon Network is an integration with other shows through cultural references, including "Ed, Edd n Eddy."


There have been many specials in which Cartoon Network would run all day marathons for either a promotion or just a special airing for one of their shows. A marathon called Best Day Edder aired on April 27 and April 28, 2007. Every episode was shown in chronological order, ending with the previously unaired last episode of Season 5. Despite Cartoon Network's dramatization of this being the last episode of Ed,Edd, and Eddy,it was mentioned that there will indeed be a Season 6.[10]


Shorts[]

Cartoon Network has also produced shorts, some involving the Eds during commercial breaks. For a short while, Cartoon Network made a series of roughly 2-minute shorts called Ed, Edd, y Eduardo in which Eduardo from Foster's appeared in an Ed, Edd n Eddy episode. These shorts began airing on July 11, 2006 on Cartoon Network. There was also a short video with stylized versions of Ed, Edd, Eddy and Sarah, entitled "The Incredible Shrinking Day", which aired on Cartoon Network in 2002 and 2003, in which Sarah used a potion to shrink the Eds to a size capable of playing in her dollhouse, with predictable results. Plank starred in a similar video "My Best Friend Plank" which aired in 2002.


Special events[]

Cartoon Network Invaded

A special episode of Ed, Edd n Eddy aired on May 11, 2007 in the Cartoon Network event, Cartoon Network Invaded, in which aliens invade Rolf's house. This alien invasion is in adjunct with other Cartoon Network series, such as Foster's Home For Imaginary Friends, My Gym Partner's a Monkey, Camp Lazlo, and The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy.[11]

The episode is part a mini-series that aired all 5 specials on May 28, 2007.


The Future[]

a.k.a. Cartoon conducted a panel on 7/26/2007 at San Diego Comic-Con and provided the following information about the future of the series. There will not be a full sixth season of the series at this time since they chose to put their time into making a movie instead. The movie is tentatively titled "Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show" and the plot will focus on the Eds searching for Eddy's brother. [11]

Ed, Edd n Eddy is an animated television series created by Danny Antonucci and produced by Canadian based a.k.a. Cartoon for Cartoon Network. The series, which was Cartoon Network's sixth Cartoon Cartoon, was first aired in 1999. It is, as of 2008, the longest-running original cartoon on Cartoon Network. It airs in many countries of the world (though not in its native Canada). Originally, there were only going to be four seasons; however, Cartoon Network ordered two more, giving the series a total of six seasons. However, the sixth season has been postponed, as the crew is working on a TV movie. Rugrats is a Daytime Emmy award winning American animated television series that aired from August 11, 1991 to June 8, 2004 on Nickelodeon. At 14 years, Rugrats is Nickelodeon's longest running show. According to Nickelodeon producers, Rugrats is the show that put them on top in the 90's. [1]

Premise[]

Premise[]

The series revolves around three preadolescent boys: Ed, who is slow-witted and often speaks in non sequiturs[2]; Edd, usually called "Double D", who is rather intelligent and polite, if high-strung[2]; and Eddy, who is the avaricious 'leader' of the trio.[2] Collectively known as "the Eds," the three hang around in a suburban cul-de-sac. Led by Eddy, the Eds scheme to make money off their peers, but their plans usually fail, leaving them in various predicaments.[3] The show originally revolved around a group of toddlers, Thomas (Tommy) Pickles, Charles (Chuckie) Finster, and the twins Phillip (Phil) and Lillian (Lil) DeVille. The toddlers are able to communicate with each other through baby speak, although viewers can understand them, because it is 'translated'. Often, they mispronounce words or use poor grammar and their speaking is full of malapropisms. The group is often reluctantly joined by Tommy's cousin, Angelica Pickles. At age three years old, Angelica is able to communicate and understand language from both the toddlers and the adults, which she often uses as an advantage when she wants to manipulate either party. Susie Carmichael, who lives across the street from the Pickles, is also able to communicate on the same level as Angelica, though she isn't manipulative. As a result, Angelica and Susie often clash.[1]


The number of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy is fixed at twelve. No other characters have appeared besides the main cast and adults are never seen. There is no given timeline for the show; Danny Antonucci has stated that he wanted the show to appeal to any generation. Therefore, if a VCR or computer is needed in a plot, it is there. Template:Fact In 1998, a new character was introduced. After The Rugrats Movie, in which Tommy's baby brother Dylan (Dil) Pickles is born, he is soon added as a character on the show. As a three month old baby, Dil is not able to communicate with anyone. Later, after Rugrats in Paris: The Movie is released, Kimi Finster is added as a character as Chuckie's step sister.[1]

Characters[]

Overview[]

Ed, Edd n Eddy was animated wholly using traditional cel animation up until its fourth season. Though the show is still entirely hand-drawn, all cels are colored digitally as are most other series. It is the last major cartoon to use painted cels.Template:Fact To give the impression of movement, Ed, Edd n Eddy uses shimmering character outlines similar to Squigglevision.Template:Fact The crawling lines are not nearly as active as those in Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, but are still visible.[3] Much of the unfavorable press that Ed, Edd n Eddy received has been because of this animation technique.[4] However, Danny Antonucci calls it a "wobble", and likens it to cartoons of the 1930s where the film tended to be unstable and cause a similar effect.[5]

Main article: List of Rugrats characters


There is a strong theme of vagueness in the series,Template:Fact including the setting and deeper facts about the children. The show revolves solely around the Eds, the other cul-de-sac children, and the Kanker sisters.[5] There are no hints as to where the cartoon takes place. Little is known about any other people in the town and if they even have any type of relation to the regular characters of the series, other than the fact that Ed is Sarah's older brother.

Production[]

Rugrats was Nickelodeon's second Nicktoon. The series was in production from 1991 to 1994, and again from 1996 to 2004. It aired in Nickelodeon's Snick block from 1997-2000. It is the longest lasting Nicktoon to date, at over fourteen years longevity. The Rugrats received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in a ceremony on June 28, 2001.


The show frequently makes meta-references and often breaks the fourth wall. Almost every episode contains references to pop culture, especially movies. An example would be a reference to The Shining: In one episode, Eddy says to Rolf: "Hey, Stretch! All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!"Template:Fact All the episode titles, except for the holiday specials, are popular sayings with a word replaced with the word Ed (for example, "Stop, Look, and Ed": Stop, Look, and Listen.) Some are also parodies of movie titles (e.g., the episode "For Your Ed Only" would be For Your Eyes Only). In addition, the letters AKA, the abbreviation for the name of the company that produces the show (a.k.a. Cartoon), frequently appear in the show on license plates, magazines, T-shirts, etc.Template:Fact The show airs in the UK on CITV and Nickelodeon UK as well as in Canada on YTV. In Australia, it can be seen on Nickelodeon Australia (and, for a period, ABC Television).


The kids have multi-colored tongues, because, as Danny Antonucci stated, kids are almost always eating something that turn their tongues different colors.[5] On August 11, 2001, Rugrats celebrated its 10 year anniversary. The special "Rugrats: All Growed Up" was produced for the occasion. After the show, a special retrospective lookback aired, called "Rugrats: Still Babies After All These Years". It was narrated by Amanda Bynes.


Most of the episodes begin with something completely unrelated to the storyline of the episode; this is to emphasize the spontaneity of childhood.[5]

Movies[]

In 1998, the first Rugrats film was released, entitled "The Rugrats Movie", which introduced baby Dil, Tommy's little brother, onto the show. In 2000 the second movie, "Rugrats in Paris", was released, with two new characters introduced, Kimi and Kira. Kimi would become Chuckie's sister and Kira would become his new mother, after marrying his father. In 2003, the third movie, "Rugrats Go Wild!", was released. It was a crossover between the Rugrats and The Wild Thornberrys, characters from another popular Nickelodeon show. A TV movie was also made, in which the babies see the future, into the their young teen years. This spun off into the show All Grown Up, which takes place nine years into the future.


Characters[]

Main article: List of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy

According to an interview with Danny Antonucci (a special feature on the Season 1 DVD set), the characters were based on real people in his life. The personalities of Ed, Edd, and Eddy are based on personal traits of himself, and the activities of his two sons. The cul-de-sac kids were based on people he grew up with. Antonucci also stated that he believed it was important to add Plank to the show, stating that he "thought it would be really cool to do the show with Plank taking on a character of his own" and to cause Jonny to do things he would usually never do.[6] He also stated that Rolf is strongly based on himself and his cousins, since he was part of an immigrant family, and grew up in a first generation foreign household with different customs and ways of living, compared to those born in Canada.[5] In a Cartoon Network podcast interview, Antonucci hinted at the Kanker sisters being based on someone from his personal life, as well.

    • Nickelodeon (1991-2007)
    • Nicktoons Network (2002-present)


Scam of the Century is in the action category, and was developed by the lesser-known gaming company D3 Publisher.[8] The original storyline is developed around Eddy losing his precious “Who to Scam and When” book. When the three friends realize their classmate Kevin has the book in his hands and an angry mob of kids has developed, they run for the woods. Splitting up to throw off the crowd, they plan to meet up back at the cul-de-sac. Several adventures in the game await them. When they make their way back at the cul-de-sac, they find that Rolf has built a giant fort to keep them out. The game features 13 total stages, special attacks using the touch screen, the option to blow into the microphone to bring characters back to life, three side story mini-games and special items.

Critical reaction[]

  • Ireland


The reaction to Ed, Edd n Eddy is varied. Terrence Briggs of Animation World Magazine argued that every second of the show is "filler" and that the main characters are drawn as "products from the school of acid-trip caricature."[4]

    • RTÉ Two


After the review was published, support letters of the show started to pile up at Animation World Magazine's website. This caused the magazine write a more positive review of Ed, Edd n Eddy, calling it a "fresh show with very different approaches."[3]

Film critic Maryann Johanson found the show a successful experiment in style but surprisingly infantile in content, opining: "Visually, Cartoon Network's kiddie entry Ed, Edd n Eddy is delightfully gonzo, its inventive animation style and garish colors reflecting the adolescent confusion of its identically named boy heroes. But their goofy misadventures hold little appeal for grownup cartoon fans -- this one is pretty much strictly for the kiddies."[10] David Cornelius considered the Eds adolescent equivalents of the Three Stooges[2], believing: "The series revels in the sort of frantic, often gross humor kids love so much, and there's just enough oddball insanity at play to make adults giggle just as easily."[2] Cornelius also concurred that the "animation is colorful and intentionally bizarre; bold lines forming the characters and backgrounds wiggle and morph in a delirious haze. This is animation that's, well, really animated."[2]

There have been other produced works in which the Eds would appear than just their regular series airings.

Also, they appeared in a small crossover entitled Ed, Edd n Mandy.

Shorts[]

  • Netherlands


Cartoon Network has also produced shorts, some involving the Eds during commercial breaks. For a short while, Cartoon Network made a series of roughly 2-minute shorts called Ed, Edd, y Eduardo in which Eduardo from Foster's appeared in an Ed, Edd n Eddy episode.Template:Fact These shorts began airing on July 11, 2006 on Cartoon Network. There was also a short video with stylized versions of Ed, Edd, Eddy and Sarah, entitled "The Incredible Shrinking Day", which aired on Cartoon Network in 2002 and 2003. In the video Sarah uses a potion to shrink the Eds to a size capable of playing in her dollhouse, with predictable results. Plank starred in a similar video called "My Best Friend Plank," which aired in 2002.Template:Fact

Scam of the Century is in the action category, and was developed by the lesser-known gaming company D3 Publisher.[7] The original storyline is developed around Eddy losing his precious “Who to Scam and When” book. When the three friends realize their classmate Kevin has the book in his hands and an angry mob of kids has developed, they run for the woods. Splitting up to throw off the crowd, they plan to meet up back at the cul-de-sac. Several adventures in the game await them. When they make their way back at the cul-de-sac, they find that Rolf has built a giant fort to keep them out. The game features 13 total stages, special attacks using the touch screen, the option to blow into the microphone to bring characters back to life, three side story mini-games and special items.

All three Eds have been confirmed as NPCs in the upcoming MMOG Cartoon Network Universe: FusionFall. Their artwork for the game is viewable on the game's main website. Their appearance as Nanos -- items that help the user or his/her party -- (besides Eddy's) has yet to be confirmed. [8]

Ed, Edd n Eddy is an original animated television series on Cartoon Network, created by Danny Antonucci and produced by Canadian-based a.k.a. Cartoon. Ed, Edd n Eddy is currently Cartoon Network's longest running seriesTemplate:Fact, and the only currently running Cartoon Cartoons series. The show aired for five seasons on the network. The series revolves around three preadolescent boys collectively known as "the Eds," who hang around in a suburban cul-de-sac. Unofficially led by Eddy, the Eds constantly scheme to make money off their peers, in order to purchase their favorite confectionery: jawbreakers. However, their plans usually fail, leaving them in various predicaments. Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó, and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon. The series premiered on Sunday August 11, 1991 and aired its last episode on Tuesday June 8, 2004.

The show centers around four babies and their day-to-day lives, usually involving common life experiences that become adventures in the babies' imaginations. It was one of the first three Nicktoons and also aired on Nick Jr. in 1996.

Premise[]

Overview[]

Ed, Edd n Eddy was animated wholly using traditional cel animation up until its fourth season. Though the show is still entirely hand-drawn, all cels are colored digitally as are most other series. It is the last major cartoon to use painted cels.Template:Fact The cels are shipped to Korea for creating the initial animation, and then later edited back at a.k.a. To give the impression of movement, Ed, Edd n Eddy uses shimmering character outlines similar to Squigglevision. The crawling lines are not nearly as active as those in Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, but are still visible.[1] Much of the unfavorable press that Ed, Edd n Eddy received has been because of this animation technique.[2] However, Danny Antonucci calls it a "wobble", and likens it to cartoons of the 1930s where the film tended to be unstable and cause a similar effect.[3] The show originally revolved around a group of toddlers, Thomas "Tommy" Pickles (whose family moved from Akron, Ohio to their current location in California[4]), Charles "Chuckie" Finster, and the twins Phillip "Phil" and Lillian "Lil" DeVille. The toddlers are able to communicate with each other through baby speak, although viewers can understand them, because it is 'translated'. Often, they mispronounce words or use poor grammar and their speaking is full of malapropisms. An example of this is using the word "poopetrator" instead of "perpetrator." The group is often reluctantly joined by Tommy's cousin, Angelica Pickles. At age three years old, Angelica is able to communicate and understand language from both the toddlers and the adults, which she often uses as an advantage when she wants to manipulate either party. She is usually very mean to the babies. Susie Carmichael, who lives across the street from the Pickles, is also able to communicate on the same level as Angelica, though she isn't manipulative. As a result, Angelica and Susie often clash.[5]


There is a strong theme of vagueness in the series,Template:Fact including the setting and deeper facts about the children. The show revolves solely around the Eds, the other cul-de-sac children, and the Kanker sisters.[3] At first, there were no hints as to where the cartoon takes place, though later on it was revealed that the cul-de-sac is in or near a town called Peach Creek (at least close enough that all the cul-de-sac children go to school there, anyway). Little is known about any other people in the town and if they even have any type of relation to the regular characters of the series, other than the fact that Ed is Sarah's older brother. In 1998, a new character was introduced. After The Rugrats Movie, in which Tommy's baby brother Dylan "Dil" Pickles is born, he was soon added as a character on the show. As a four month old baby, Dil is not able to communicate with anyone. Later in 2000, after Rugrats in Paris: The Movie was released, Kimi Finster was added as a character. She is Chuckie's stepsister.[5]


The show frequently makes meta-references and often breaks the fourth wall. Almost every episode contains references to pop culture, especially movies. An example would be a reference to The Shining: In one episode, Eddy says to Rolf: "Hey, Stretch! All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!"Template:Fact All the episode titles, except for the holiday specials, are popular sayings with a word replaced with the word Ed (for example, "Stop, Look, and Ed": Stop, Look, and Listen.) Some are also parodies of movie titles (e.g., the episode "For Your Ed Only" would be For Your Eyes Only). In addition, the letters AKA, the abbreviation for the name of the company that produces the show (a.k.a. Cartoon), frequently appear in the show on license plates, magazines, T-shirts, etc.Template:Fact The kids have multi-colored tongues, because, as Danny Antonucci stated, kids are almost always eating something that turn their tongues different colors.[3] Most of the episodes begin with something completely unrelated to the storyline of the episode; this is to emphasize the spontaneity of childhood.[3] The number of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy is fixed at twelve. No other characters besides the main cast have ever been seen. There is no given timeline for the show; Danny Antonucci has stated that he wanted the show to appeal to any generation.Template:Fact

According to an interview with Danny Antonucci (a special feature on the Season 1 DVD set), the characters were based on real people in his life. The personalities of Ed, Edd, and Eddy are based on personal traits of himself, and the activities of his two sons. The cul-de-sac kids were based on kids he grew up with. Antonucci also stated that he believed it was important to add Plank to the show, stating that he "thought it would be really cool to do the show with Plank taking on a character of his own" and to cause Jonny to do things he would usually never do.[6] He also stated that Rolf is strongly based on himself and his cousins, since he was part of an immigrant family, and grew up in a first generation foreign household with different customs and ways of living, compared to those born in Canada.[3] In a Cartoon Network podcast interview, Antonucci hinted at the Kanker sisters being based on someone from his personal life, as well.

The Pickles are a mixed Jewish-Christian family. There are two episodes that reflect the Pickles' Jewish heritage, one episode deals with the Passover holiday and the other with Hanukkah (in addition to episodes about Christmas, Easter, Kwanzaa, etc.). These episodes have been praised by Jewish groups and are re-run every year on Nick at the appropriate holiday times and can also be purchased on VHS or DVD.


Production[]

Rugrats was Nickelodeon's second Nicktoon. The series was in production from 1991 to 1994, and again from 1996 to 2004. It aired in Nickelodeon's Snick block from 1997-2000. It is the longest lasting Nicktoon to date, at over fourteen years longevity. The Rugrats received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in a ceremony on June 28, 2001.


The show airs in the UK on CBBC, CITV, Nicktoons, Nickelodeon UK and Nicktoonsters as well as in Canada on YTV. In Australia, it can be seen on Nickelodeon Australia (and, for a period, ABC Television).


On August 11, 2001, Rugrats celebrated its 10 year anniversary. The special/TV movie, "Rugrats: All Growed Up" was produced for the occasion. After the show, a special retrospective lookback aired, entitled Rugrats: Still Babies After All These Years. It was narrated by Amanda Bynes.


The show ended in 2004 then afterwards, two fairy tale themed direct-to-video films based on the original series under the title, "Rugrats: Tales from the Crib" were planned and then released separately in 2005 and in 2006.


Theatrical films[]

In 1998, the first Rugrats film was released, entitled The Rugrats Movie, which introduced baby Dil, Tommy's little brother, onto the show. In 2000 the second movie, Rugrats in Paris, was released, with two new characters introduced, Kimi and Kira. Kimi would become Chuckie's sister and Kira would become his new mother, after marrying his father. In 2003, the third movie, Rugrats Go Wild, was released. It was a crossover between the Rugrats and The Wild Thornberrys.


Reception[]

In a 1995 interview Steven Spielberg referred to Rugrats as one of several shows that are the best children's programming at the time. Spielberg described Rugrats as "sort of a TV Peanuts of our time."[7] It was named the 92nd best animated series by IGN.[8]

  • Rugrats: Search for Reptar (PlayStation)

Cartoon. Ed, Edd n Eddy is currently Cartoon Network's longest running series[citation needed], and the only currently running Cartoon Cartoons series. The show aired for five seasons on the network. The series revolves around three preadolescent boys collectively known as "the Eds," who hang around in a suburban cul-de-sac. Unofficially led by Eddy, the Eds constantly scheme to make money off their peers, in order to purchase their favorite confectionery: jawbreakers. However, their plans usually fail, leaving them in various predicaments.

Though the show is still entirely hand-drawn, all cels are colored digitally as are most other series. It is the last major cartoon to use painted cels.[citation needed] The cels are shipped to Korea for creating the initial animation, and then later edited back at a.k.a. To give the impression of movement, Ed, Edd n Eddy uses shimmering character outlines similar to Squigglevision. The crawling lines are not nearly as active as those in Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, but are still visible.[1] Much of the unfavorable press that Ed, Edd n Eddy received has been because of this animation technique.[2] However, Danny Antonucci calls it a "wobble", and likens it to cartoons of the 1930s where the film tended to be unstable and cause a similar effect.[3]

There is a strong theme of vagueness in the series,[citation needed] including the setting and deeper facts about the children. The show revolves solely around the Eds, the other cul-de-sac children, and the Kanker sisters.[3] At first, there were no hints as to where the cartoon takes place, though later on it was revealed that the cul-de-sac is in or near a town called Peach Creek (at least close enough that all the cul-de-sac children go to school there, anyway). Little is known about any other people in the town and if they even have any type of relation to the regular characters of the series, other than the fact that Ed is Sarah's older brother.

The show frequently makes meta-references and often breaks the fourth wall. Almost every episode contains references to pop culture, especially movies. An example would be a reference to The Shining: In one episode, Eddy says to Rolf: "Hey, Stretch! All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!"[citation needed] All the episode titles, except for the holiday specials, are popular sayings with a word replaced with the word Ed (for example, "Stop, Look, and Ed": Stop, Look, and Listen.) Some are also parodies of movie titles (e.g., the episode "For Your Ed Only" would be For Your Eyes Only). In addition, the letters AKA, the abbreviation for the name of the company that produces the show (a.k.a. Cartoon), frequently appear in the show on license plates, magazines, T-shirts, etc.[citation needed] The kids have multi-colored tongues, because, as Danny Antonucci stated, kids are almost always eating something that turn their tongues different colors.[3] Most of the episodes begin with something completely unrelated to the storyline of the episode; this is to emphasize the spontaneity of childhood.[3] The number of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy is fixed at twelve. No other characters besides the main cast have ever been seen. There is no given timeline for the show; Danny Antonucci has stated that he wanted the show to appeal to any generation.[citation needed]

Characters Main article: List of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy According to an interview with Danny Antonucci (a special feature on the Season 1 DVD set), the characters were based on real people in his life. The personalities of Ed, Edd, and Eddy are based on personal traits of himself, and the activities of his two sons. The cul-de-sac kids were based on kids he grew up with. Antonucci also stated that he believed it was important to add Plank to the show, stating that he "thought it would be really cool to do the show with Plank taking on a character of his own" and to cause Jonny to do things he would usually never do.[4] He also stated that Rolf is strongly based on himself and his cousins, since he was part of an immigrant family, and grew up in a first generation foreign household with different customs and ways of living, compared to those born in Canada.[3] In a Cartoon Network podcast interview, Antonucci hinted at the Kanker sisters being based on someone from his personal life, as well.

Ed, Edd n Eddy: Jawbreakers! was released on September 15, 2002[5] for the Game Boy Advance. Ed, Edd n Eddy: The Mis-Edventures was released on October 31, 2005 for the Nintendo GameCube, PlayStation 2, Xbox, Game Boy Advance, and the PC. Most recently Ed, Edd n Eddy: Scam of the Century was released for the Nintendo DS on October 26, 2007. Additionally, characters and locations from the show make appearances in Cartoon Network based video games. The cul-de-sac is featured in the game Cartoon Network: Block Party, where Eddy and Sarah are playable characters. The Eds and Jonny appeared in Cartoon Network Speedway as playable characters.

Scam of the Century is in the action category, and was developed by the lesser-known gaming company D3 Publisher.[6] The original storyline is developed around Eddy losing his precious “Who to Scam and When” book. When the three friends realize their classmate Kevin has the book in his hands and an angry mob of kids has developed, they run for the woods. Splitting up to throw off the crowd, they plan to meet up back at the cul-de-sac. Several adventures in the game await them. When they make their way back at the cul-de-sac, they find that Rolf has built a giant fort to keep them out. The game features 13 total stages, special attacks using the touch screen, the option to blow into the microphone to bring characters back to life, three side story mini-games and special items.

All three Eds have been confirmed as NPCs in the upcoming MMOG Cartoon Network Universe: FusionFall. Their artwork for the game is viewable on the game's main website. Their appearance as Nanos -- items that help the user or his/her party [7]

Terrence Briggs of Animation World Magazine argued that every second of the show is "filler" and that the main characters are drawn as "products from the school of acid-trip caricature."[2] After the review was published, support letters of the show started to pile up at Animation World Magazine's website. This caused the magazine to write a more positive review of Ed, Edd n Eddy, calling it a "fresh show with very different approaches."[1]

Film critic Maryann Johanson found the show a successful experiment in style but surprisingly infantile in content, opining: "Visually, Cartoon Network's kiddie entry Ed, Edd n Eddy is delightfully gonzo, its inventive animation style and garish colors reflecting the adolescent confusion of its identically named boy heroes. But their goofy misadventures hold little appeal for grownup cartoon fans -- this one is pretty much strictly for the kiddies."[8] David Cornelius considered the Eds adolescent equivalents of the Three Stooges,[9] believing: "The series revels in the sort of frantic, often gross humor kids love so much, and there's just enough oddball insanity at play to make adults giggle just as easily."[9] Cornelius also concurred that the "animation is colorful and intentionally bizarre; bold lines forming the characters and backgrounds wiggle and morph in a delirious haze. This is animation that's, well, really animated."[9]

Other works File:F1a030a7.jpg Ed, Edd and Eddy look-alikes in Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. There have been other produced works in which the Eds would appear than just their regular series airings. They have appeared in a Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends episode using Foster's styled animation, and made a short cameo in The Grim Adventures of the Kids Next Door. Also, they appeared in a small crossover poster during the credits of "The Grim Adventures of the Kids Next Door" entitled Ed, Edd n Mandy.

Shorts Cartoon Network has also produced shorts, some involving the Eds during commercial breaks. For a short while, Cartoon Network made a series of roughly 2-minute shorts called Ed, Edd, y Eduardo in which Eduardo from Foster's appeared in an Ed, Edd n Eddy episode.[citation needed] These shorts began airing on July 11, 2006 on Cartoon Network. There was also a short music video with stylized versions of Ed, Edd, Eddy and Sarah, entitled "The Incredible Shrinking Day" (aka "I'm Not Coming in Anymore" as listed on the Season 2 DVD), which aired on Cartoon Network in 2002 and 2003. In the video Sarah uses a potion to shrink the Eds to a size capable of playing in her dollhouse, with predictable results. Plank starred in a similar video called "My Best Friend Plank," which aired in 2002.[citation needed]

Special events There have been many specials in which Cartoon Network would run all day marathons for either a promotion or just a special airing for one of their shows. A marathon called The Best Day Edder aired from April 27 to April 28, 2007, in which every episode was shown in chronological order, ending with the previously unaired last episode of Season 5.

A special episode of Ed, Edd n Eddy aired on May 11, 2007 in the Cartoon Network event, Invaded, in which aliens invade Rolf's house. This alien invasion is in adjunct with the other Cartoon Network series Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, My Gym Partner's a Monkey, Camp Lazlo, and The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. The episode is part a mini-series that aired all 5 specials on May 28, 2007.

Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show Main article: Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show At the San Diego Comic Co in July 2007, At the Ed, Edd, n Eddy panel they announced that there will not be a sixth season of the series at this time since they chose to put their time into making a movie instead. The movie was titled Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show and the plot will focus on the Eds searching for Eddy's brother. The elusive character finally made an appearance in the movie.[10]

The movie was completed on December 18, 2008. The movie aired in Scandinavia on May 31, 2009, Australia on June 5, 2009 and Southeast Asia on June 13. No information is yet available on when the movie will be aired in North America.

Premise[]

Overview[]

Ed, Edd n Eddy was animated wholly using traditional cel animation up until its fourth season. Though the show is still entirely hand-drawn, all cels are colored digitally as are most other series. It is the last major cartoon to use painted cels.Template:Citation needed The cels are shipped to Korea for creating the initial animation, and then later edited back at a.k.a. To give the impression of movement, Ed, Edd n Eddy uses shimmering character outlines similar to Squigglevision. The crawling lines are not nearly as active as those in Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, but are still visible.[1] Much of the unfavorable press that Ed, Edd n Eddy received has been because of this animation technique.[2] However, Danny Antonucci calls it a "wobble", and likens it to cartoons of the 1930s where the film tended to be unstable and cause a similar effect.[3] The show originally revolved around a group of toddlers, Thomas "Tommy" Pickles (whose family moved from Akron, Ohio to their current location in California[16]), Charles "Chuckie" Finster, and the twins Phillip "Phil" and Lillian "Lil" DeVille. The toddlers are able to communicate with each other through baby speak, although viewers can understand them, because it is 'translated'. Often, they mispronounce words or use poor grammar and their speaking is full of malapropisms. An example of this is using the word "poopetrator" instead of "perpetrator." The group is often reluctantly joined by Tommy's cousin, Angelica Pickles. At age three years old, Angelica is able to communicate and understand language from both the toddlers and the adults, which she often uses as an advantage when she wants to manipulate either party. She is usually very mean to the babies. Susie Carmichael, who lives across the street from the Pickles, is also able to communicate on the same level as Angelica, though she isn't manipulative. As a result, Angelica and Susie often clash.[5]


There is a strong theme of vagueness in the series,Template:Citation needed including the setting and deeper facts about the children. The show revolves solely around the Eds, the other cul-de-sac children, and the Kanker sisters.[3] At first, there were no hints as to where the cartoon takes place, though later on it was revealed that the cul-de-sac is in or near a town called Peach Creek (at least close enough that all the cul-de-sac children go to school there, anyway). Little is known about any other people in the town and if they even have any type of relation to the regular characters of the series, other than the fact that Ed is Sarah's older brother. In 1998, a new character was introduced. After The Rugrats Movie, in which Tommy's baby brother Dylan "Dil" Pickles is born, he was soon added as a character on the show. As a four month old baby, Dil is not able to communicate with anyone. Later in 2000, after Rugrats in Paris: The Movie was released, Kimi Finster was added as a character. She is Chuckie's stepsister.[5]


The show frequently makes meta-references and often breaks the fourth wall. Almost every episode contains references to pop culture, especially movies. An example would be a reference to The Shining: In one episode, Eddy says to Rolf: "Hey, Stretch!

According to an interview with Danny Antonucci (a special feature on the Season 1 DVD set), the characters were based on real people in his life. The personalities of Ed, Edd, and Eddy are based on personal traits of himself, and the activities of his two sons. The Eds also held personality traits of The Three Stooges, who were a comedy trio who's various characters they portrayed in each short subject film often try to create money-making schemes, but their plans end up backfiring them near the end of their films. The cul-de-sac kids were based on kids he grew up with. Antonucci also stated that he believed it was important to add Plank to the show, stating that he "thought it would be really cool to do the show with Plank taking on a character of his own" and to cause Jonny to do things he would usually never do.[18] He also stated that Rolf is strongly based on himself and his cousins, since he was part of an immigrant family, and grew up in a first generation foreign household with different customs and ways of living, compared to those born in Canada.[3] In a Cartoon Network podcast interview, Antonucci hinted at the Kanker sisters being based on someone from his personal life, as well.

The Pickles are a mixed Jewish-Christian family. There are two episodes that reflect the Pickles' Jewish heritage, one episode deals with the Passover holiday and the other with Hanukkah (in addition to episodes about Christmas, Easter, Kwanzaa, etc.). These episodes have been praised by Jewish groups and are re-run every year on Nick at the appropriate holiday times and can also be purchased on VHS or DVD.

Critical reaction[]

The reaction to Ed, Edd n Eddy is varied. Terrence Briggs of Animation World Magazine argued that every second of the show is "filler" and that the main characters are drawn as "products from the school of acid-trip caricature."[2]

  • Rugrats: Search for Reptar (PlayStation)


After the review was published, support letters of the show started to pile up at Animation World Magazine's website. This caused the magazine to write a more positive review of Ed, Edd n Eddy, calling it a "fresh show with very different approaches."[1]

  • Rugrats: Studio Tour (PlayStation)


  • Rugrats: Scavenger Hunt (Nintendo 64)


Film critic Maryann Johanson found the show a successful experiment in style but surprisingly infantile in content, opining: "Visually, Cartoon Network's kiddie entry Ed, Edd n Eddy is delightfully gonzo, its inventive animation style and garish colors reflecting the adolescent confusion of its identically named boy heroes. But their goofy misadventures hold little appeal for grownup cartoon fans -- this one is pretty much strictly for the kiddies."[13] David Cornelius considered the Eds adolescent equivalents of the Three Stooges,[14] believing: "The series revels in the sort of frantic, often gross humor kids love so much, and there's just enough oddball insanity at play to make adults giggle just as easily."[14] Cornelius also concurred that the "animation is colorful and intentionally bizarre; bold lines forming the characters and backgrounds wiggle and morph in a delirious haze. This is animation that's, well, really animated."[14]

There have been other produced works in which the Eds would appear apart from their regular series airings. They have appeared in a Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends episode using Foster's styled animation, and made a short cameo in The Grim Adventures of the Kids Next Door. Also, they appeared in a small crossover poster during the credits of "The Grim Adventures of the Kids Next Door" entitled Ed, Edd n Mandy.

Shorts[]

  • Rugrats: Royal Ransom (PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube)


Cartoon Network has also produced shorts, some involving the Eds during commercial breaks. For a short while, Cartoon Network made a series of roughly 2-minute shorts called Ed, Eddy, Eduardo in which Eduardo from Foster's appeared in an Ed, Edd n Eddy episode.Template:Citation needed These shorts began airing on July 11, 2006 on Cartoon Network. There was also a short music video with stylized versions of Ed, Edd, Eddy and Sarah, entitled "The Incredible Shrinking Day" (aka "I'm Not Coming in Anymore" as listed on the Season 2 DVD), which aired on Cartoon Network in 2002 and 2003. In the video Sarah uses a potion to shrink the Eds to a size capable of playing in her dollhouse, with predictable results. Plank starred in a similar video called "My Best Friend Plank," which aired in 2002.Template:Citation needed

Cartoon. Ed, Edd n Eddy is Cartoon Network's longest running series[citation needed] and the longest-running of the channel's Cartoon Cartoons. The series revolves around three adolescent boys collectively known as "the Eds," who hang around in a suburban cul-de-sac. Unofficially led by Eddy, the Eds constantly scheme to make money off their peers, in order to purchase their favorite confectionery: jawbreakers. However, their plans usually fail, leaving them in various predicaments.

Though the show is still entirely hand-drawn, all cels are colored digitally as are most other series. It is the last major cartoon to use painted cels.[citation needed] The cels are shipped to Korea for creating the initial animation, and then later edited back at a.k.a. To give the impression of movement, Ed, Edd n Eddy uses shimmering character outlines similar to Squigglevision. The crawling lines are not nearly as active as those in Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, but are still visible.[1] Much of the unfavorable press that Ed, Edd n Eddy received has been because of this animation technique.[2] However, Danny Antonucci calls it a "wobble", and likens it to cartoons of the 1930s where the film tended to be unstable and cause a similar effect.[3]

There is a strong theme of vagueness in the series,[citation needed] including the setting and deeper facts about the children. The show revolves solely around the Eds, the other cul-de-sac children, and the Kanker sisters.[3] At first, there were no hints as to where the cartoon takes place, though later on it was revealed that the cul-de-sac is in or near a town called Peach Creek (at least close enough that all the cul-de-sac children go to school there, anyway). Little is known about any other people in the town and if they even have any type of relation to the regular characters of the series, other than the fact that Ed is Sarah's older brother.

The show frequently makes meta-references and often breaks the fourth wall. Almost every episode contains references to pop culture, especially movies. An example would be a reference to The Shining: In one episode, Eddy says to Rolf: "Hey, Stretch! All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!"[4] All the episode titles, except for the holiday specials, are popular sayings with a word replaced with the word Ed (for example, "Stop, Look, and Ed": Stop, Look, and Listen.) Some are also parodies of movie titles (e.g., the episode "For Your Ed Only" would be For Your Eyes Only). In addition, the letters AKA, the abbreviation for the name of the company that produces the show (a.k.a. Cartoon), frequently appear in the show on license plates, magazines, T-shirts, etc.[citation needed] The kids have multi-colored tongues, because, as Danny Antonucci stated, kids are almost always eating something that turn their tongues different colors.[3] Most of the episodes begin with something completely unrelated to the storyline of the episode; this is to emphasize the spontaneity of childhood.[3] The number of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy is fixed at twelve. Until the debut of the movie "Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show" -where Eddy's adult brother was shown for the very first time -no other characters besides the main cast were ever seen. There is no given timeline for the show; Danny Antonucci has stated that he wanted the show to appeal to any generation.[citation needed]

Characters Main article: List of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy According to an interview with Danny Antonucci (a special feature on the Season 1 DVD set), the characters were based on real people in his life. The personalities of Ed, Edd, and Eddy are based on personal traits of himself, and the activities of his two sons. The Eds also held personality traits of The Three Stooges, who were a comedy trio who's various characters they portrayed in each short subject film often try to create money-making schemes, but their plans end up backfiring them near the end of their films. The cul-de-sac kids were based on kids he grew up with. Antonucci also stated that he believed it was important to add Plank to the show, stating that he "thought it would be really cool to do the show with Plank taking on a character of his own" and to cause Jonny to do things he would usually never do.[5] He also stated that Rolf is strongly based on himself and his cousins, since he was part of an immigrant family, and grew up in a first generation foreign household with different customs and ways of living, compared to those born in Canada.[3] In a Cartoon Network podcast interview, Antonucci hinted at the Kanker sisters being based on someone from his personal life, as well.

Ed, Edd n Eddy is an original animated television series on Cartoon Network created by Danny Antonucci and produced by Canadian-based a.k.a. Cartoon. Ed, Edd n Eddy is one of Cartoon Network's longest running series[1] and the longest-running of the channel's Cartoon Cartoons. The series revolves around three adolescent boys collectively known as "the Eds," who hang around in a suburban cul-de-sac. Unofficially led by Eddy, the Eds constantly scheme to make money off their peers, in order to purchase their favorite confectionery: jawbreakers. However, their plans usually fail, leaving them in various predicaments. Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó, and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon. The series premiered on Sunday August 11, 1991 and aired its last episode on Tuesday June 8, 2004.

The show focuses on four babies and their day-to-day lives, usually involving common life experiences that become adventures in the babies' imaginations. It was one of the first three Nicktoons and also aired on Nick Jr. in 1995.

Premise[]

Backdrop[]

The show originally revolved around a group of children, including infant Thomas "Tommy" Pickles (whose family moved from Akron, Ohio to their current location in California[2]), toddler Charles "Chuckie" Finster, and the twin-infants Phillip "Phil" and Lillian "Lil" DeVille. The toddlers are able to communicate with each other through baby speak, although viewers can understand them, because it is 'translated'. Often, they mispronounce words or use poor grammar and their speaking is full of malapropisms. An example of this is using the word "poopetrator" instead of "perpetrator." The group is often reluctantly joined by Tommy's cousin, Angelica Pickles. At age three years old, Angelica is able to communicate and understand language from both the toddlers and the adults, which she often uses as an advantage when she wants to manipulate either party. She is usually very mean to the babies. Susie Carmichael, who lives across the street from the Pickles, is also able to communicate on the same level as Angelica, though she isn't manipulative. As a result, Angelica and Susie often clash.[3]


Premise[]

In 1998, a new character was introduced. After The Rugrats Movie, in which Tommy's baby brother Dylan "Dil" Pickles is born, he was soon added as a character on the show. As a four month old baby, Dil is not able to communicate with anyone. Later in 2000, after Rugrats in Paris: The Movie was released, Kimi Finster was added as a character. She is Chuckie's stepsister.[3]


The show revolves solely around the Eds, the other cul-de-sac children, and the Kanker sisters.[4] Subtle hints throughout the series pointed to where the cartoon took place, as it was revealed that the cul-de-sac is in the town called of Peach Creek. As similar to the Animated Peanuts series, no adults are seen, as well as the seeming lack of any other inhabitants and any other possible relations; besides Sarah being Ed's little sister and a the running gag of Rolf and his mysterious family relations.

The main babies. Clockwise from top: Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica, Lil, Phil, Dil, Kimi, and Susie.

The Pickles are a mixed Jewish-Christian family. There are two episodes that reflect the Pickles' Jewish heritage, one episode deals with the Passover holiday and the other with Hanukkah (in addition to episodes about Christmas, Easter, Kwanzaa, etc.). These episodes have been praised by Jewish groups and are re-run every year on Nick at the appropriate holiday times and can also be purchased on VHS or DVD.

Main article: List of Ed, Edd n Eddy episodes

Rugrats was Nickelodeon's second Nicktoon. The series was in production from 1991 to 2004. It aired in Nickelodeon's Snick block from 1997-2000. It is the longest lasting Nicktoon to date, at over fourteen years longevity. The Rugrats received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in a ceremony on June 28, 2001.

The pilot episode title card: "The Ed-Touchables"

The show frequently makes meta-references and often breaks the fourth wall. Almost every episode contains references to pop culture, especially movies. An example would be a reference to The Shining: In one episode, Eddy says to Rolf: "Hey, Stretch! All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy!"[5] All the episode titles, except for the holiday specials, are popular sayings with a word replaced with the word Ed (for example, "Stop, Look, and Ed": Stop, Look, and Listen.) Some are also parodies of movie titles (e.g., the episode "For Your Ed Only" would be For Your Eyes Only). In addition, the letters AKA, the abbreviation for the name of the company that produces the show (a.k.a. Cartoon), frequently appear in the show on license plates.[6] The kids have multi-colored tongues, because, as Danny Antonucci stated, kids are almost always eating something that turn their tongues different colors.[4] Most of the episodes begin with something completely unrelated to the storyline of the episode; this is to emphasize the spontaneity of childhood.[4] The number of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy is fixed at twelve. Until the debut of the movie "Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show" -where Eddy's adult brother was shown for the very first time -no other characters besides the main cast were ever seen. There is no given timeline for the show; Danny Antonucci has stated that he wanted the show to appeal to any generation.[7] The show airs in the UK on CBBC, CITV, Nicktoons, Nickelodeon UK and Nicktoonsters as well as in Canada on YTV. In Australia, it can be seen on Nickelodeon Australia (and, for a period, ABC Television).


Ed, Edd n Eddy was animated wholly using traditional cel animation up until its fifth season. Though the show is still entirely hand-drawn, all cels are colored digitally as are most other series. It is the last major cartoon to use painted cels.Template:Citation needed The cels are shipped to Korea for creating the initial animation, and then later edited back at a.k.a. To give the impression of movement, Ed, Edd n Eddy uses shimmering character outlines similar to Squigglevision. The crawling lines are not nearly as active as those in Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, but are still visible.[8] Much of the unfavorable press that Ed, Edd n Eddy received has been because of this animation technique.[9] However, Danny Antonucci calls it a "wobble", and likens it to cartoons of the 1930s where the film tended to be unstable and cause a similar effect.[4] On August 11, 2001, Rugrats celebrated its 10 year anniversary. The special/TV movie, Rugrats: All Growed Up was produced for the occasion. After the show, a special retrospective lookback aired, entitled Rugrats: Still Babies After All These Years. It was narrated by Amanda Bynes.


Characters[]

The show ended in 2004. Two fairy-tale themed direct-to-video films based on the original series under the title, Rugrats: Tales from the Crib were planned and then released separately in 2005 and in 2006. On August 11, 2011 the Rugrats will be celebrating its 20 year anniversary to celebrate its 20th birthday.


Main article: List of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy

According to an interview with Danny Antonucci (a special feature on the Season 1 DVD set), the characters were based on real people in his life. The personalities of Ed, Edd, and Eddy are based on personal traits of himself, and the activities of his two sons. The Eds also held personality traits of The Three Stooges, who were a comedy trio who's various characters they portrayed in each short subject film often try to create money-making schemes, but their plans end up backfiring them near the end of their films. The cul-de-sac kids were based on kids he grew up with. Antonucci also stated that he believed it was important to add Plank to the show, stating that he "thought it would be really cool to do the show with Plank taking on a character of his own" and to cause Jonny to do things he would usually never do.[10] He also stated that Rolf is strongly based on himself and his cousins, since he was part of an immigrant family, and grew up in a first generation foreign household with different customs and ways of living, compared to those born in Canada.[4] In a Cartoon Network podcast interview, Antonucci hinted at the Kanker sisters being based on someone from his personal life, as well.

DVD releases[]

Theatrical films[]

Episode compilations[]

In 1998, the first Rugrats film was released, entitled The Rugrats Movie, which introduced baby Dil, Tommy's little brother, onto the show. In 2000 the second movie, Rugrats in Paris, was released, with two new characters introduced, Kimi and Kira. Kimi would become Chuckie's sister and Kira would become his new mother, after marrying his father. In 2003, the third movie, Rugrats Go Wild, was released. It was a crossover between the Rugrats and The Wild Thornberrys.


In a 1995 interview, Steven Spielberg referred to Rugrats as one of several shows that are the best children's programming at the time. Spielberg described Rugrats as "sort of a TV Peanuts of our time."[11] It was named the 92nd best animated series by IGN.[12]

Critical reaction[]

Video games[]

The reaction to Ed, Edd n Eddy is varied. Terrence Briggs of Animation World Magazine argued that every second of the show is "filler" and that the main characters are drawn as "products from the school of acid-trip caricature."[9]

  • Rugrats: Search for Reptar (PlayStation)


After the review was published, support letters of the show started to pile up at Animation World Magazine's website. This caused the magazine to write a more positive review of Ed, Edd n Eddy, calling it a "fresh show with very different approaches."[8]

  • Rugrats: Studio Tour (PlayStation)


  • Rugrats: Scavenger Hunt (Nintendo 64)


Film critic Maryann Johanson found the show a successful experiment in style but surprisingly infantile in content, opining: "Visually, Cartoon Network's kiddie entry Ed, Edd n Eddy is delightfully gonzo, its inventive animation style and garish colors reflecting the adolescent confusion of its identically named boy heroes. But their goofy misadventures hold little appeal for grownup cartoon fans -- this one is pretty much strictly for the kiddies."[17] David Cornelius considered the Eds adolescent equivalents of the Three Stooges,[18] believing: "The series revels in the sort of frantic, often gross humor kids love so much, and there's just enough oddball insanity at play to make adults giggle just as easily."[18] Cornelius also concurred that the "animation is colorful and intentionally bizarre; bold lines forming the characters and backgrounds wiggle and morph in a delirious haze. This is animation that's, well, really animated."[18]

There have been other produced works in which the Eds would appear apart from their regular series airings. They have appeared in a Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends episode using Foster's styled animation, and made a short cameo in The Grim Adventures of the Kids Next Door. Also, they appeared in a small crossover poster during the credits of "The Grim Adventures of the Kids Next Door" entitled Ed, Edd n Mandy.

  • Rugrats: All Growed Up - Older and Bolder (PC CD Rom)


  • Rugrats: Castle Capers (Game Boy Advance)


Shorts[]

  • Rugrats: Royal Ransom (PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube)


Cartoon Network has also produced shorts, some involving the Eds during commercial breaks. For a short while, Cartoon Network made a series of roughly 2-minute shorts called Ed, Eddy, Eduardo in which Eduardo from Foster's appeared in an Ed, Edd n Eddy episode.Template:Citation needed These shorts began airing on July 11, 2006 on Cartoon Network. There was also a short music video with stylized versions of Ed, Edd, Eddy and Sarah, entitled "The Incredible Shrinking Day" (aka "I'm Not Coming in Anymore" as listed on the Season 2 DVD), which aired on Cartoon Network in 2002 and 2003. In the video Sarah uses a potion to shrink the Eds to a size capable of playing in her dollhouse, with predictable results. Plank starred in a similar video called "My Best Friend Plank," which aired in 2002.Template:Citation needed

A marathon called The Best Day Edder aired from April 27 to April 28, 2007, in which every episode was shown in chronological order, ending with the previously unaired last episode of Season 5.

A special episode of Ed, Edd n Eddy aired on May 11, 2007 in the Cartoon Network event, Invaded, in which aliens invade Rolf's house. This alien invasion is in adjunct with the other Cartoon Network series Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, My Gym Partner's a Monkey, Camp Lazlo, and The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. The episode is part a mini-series that aired all 5 specials on May 28, 2007.

At the San Diego Comic Con in July 2007 the show's creators announced that there will not be a sixth season of the series at this time since they were working on making a movie to conclude the series instead. The plot focuses on the Eds searching for Eddy's brother. The elusive character finally appears in the concluding segment of the film.

The series revolves around three adolescent boys collectively known as "the Eds," who hang around in a suburban cul-de-sac.

Terrence Briggs of Animation World Magazine argued that every second of the show is "filler" and that the main characters are drawn as "products from the school of acid-trip caricature."[9] After the review was published, support letters of the show started to pile up at Animation World Magazine's website. This caused the magazine to write a more positive review of Ed, Edd n Eddy, calling it a "fresh show with very different approaches."[8]

Film critic Maryann Johanson found the show a successful experiment in style but surprisingly infantile in content, opining: "Visually, Cartoon Network's kiddie entry Ed, Edd n Eddy is delightfully gonzo, its inventive animation style and garish colors reflecting the adolescent confusion of its identically named boy heroes. But their goofy misadventures hold little appeal for grownup cartoon fans -- this one is pretty much strictly for the kiddies."[14] David Cornelius considered the Eds adolescent equivalents of the Three Stooges,[15] believing: "The series revels in the sort of frantic, often gross humor kids love so much, and there's just enough oddball insanity at play to make adults giggle just as easily."[15] Cornelius also concurred that the "animation is colorful and intentionally bizarre; bold lines forming the characters and backgrounds wiggle and morph in a delirious haze. This is animation that's, well, really animated."[15]

Additional Works File:F1a030a7.jpg Ed, Edd and Eddy look-alikes in the Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends "Eddie Monster". There have been other produced works in which the Eds would appear apart from their regular series airings.

Also, they appeared in a small crossover poster during the credits of "The Grim Adventures of the Kids Next Door" entitled Ed, Edd n Mandy.

Shorts Cartoon Network has also produced shorts, some involving the Eds during commercial breaks. For a short while, Cartoon Network made a series of roughly 2-minute shorts called Ed, Eddy, Eduardo in which Eduardo from Foster's appeared in an Ed, Edd n Eddy episode.[citation needed] These shorts began airing on July 11, 2006 on Cartoon Network. There was also a short music video with stylized versions of Ed, Edd, Eddy and Sarah, entitled "The Incredible Shrinking Day" (aka "I'm Not Coming in Anymore" as listed on the Season 2 DVD), which aired on Cartoon Network in 2002 and 2003. In the video Sarah uses a potion to shrink the Eds to a size capable of playing in her dollhouse, with predictable results. Plank starred in a similar video called "My Best Friend Plank," which aired in 2002.[citation needed]

Special events There have been many specials in which Cartoon Network would run all day marathons for either a promotion or just a special airing for one of their shows.

Ed, Edd n Eddy is an original animated television series on Cartoon Network created by Danny Antonucci and produced by Canadian-based a.k.a. Cartoon. Ed, Edd n Eddy is one of Cartoon Network's longest running and is considered one of its most successful franchises[1][2] and the longest-running of the channel's original Cartoon Cartoons. The series revolves around three adolescent boys collectively known as "the Eds," who hang around in a suburban cul-de-sac. Unofficially led by Eddy, the Eds constantly scheme to make money off their peers, in order to purchase their favorite confectionery: jawbreakers. However, their plans usually fail, leaving them in various predicaments. Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó, and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon. The series premiered on August 11, 1991 and aired its last episode on June 8, 2004.

The show focuses on four babies and their day-to-day lives, usually involving common life experiences that become adventures in the babies' imaginations. It was one of the first three Nicktoons and also aired on Nick Jr. in 1995.


The series ended its 10 year run on Cartoon Network with the series finale movie "Ed Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show" on November 8, 2009, but reruns currently air on Cartoon Network.

Premise[]

The show originally revolved around a group of children (three boys and one girl), including infant Thomas "Tommy" Pickles, toddler Charles "Chuckie" Finster, and the twin-infants Phillip "Phil" and Lillian "Lil" DeVille. The toddlers are able to communicate with each other through baby speak, although viewers can understand them, because it is 'translated'. Often, they mispronounce words or use poor grammar and their speaking is full of malapropisms. An example of this is using the word "poopetrator" instead of "perpetrator." The group is often reluctantly joined by Tommy's cousin, Angelica Pickles. At three years old, Angelica is able to communicate and understand language from both the toddlers and the adults, which she often uses as an advantage when she wants to manipulate either party. She is usually very mean to the babies. Susie Carmichael, who lives across the street from the Pickles, is also able to communicate on the same level as Angelica, though she isn't manipulative. As a result, Angelica and Susie often clash.[3]


Plot[]

In 1998, a new character was introduced. After The Rugrats Movie, in which Tommy's baby brother Dylan "Dil" Pickles is born, he was soon added as a character on the show. As a four month old baby, Dil is not able to communicate with anyone. Later in 2000, after Rugrats in Paris: The Movie was released, Kimi Finster was added as a character. She is Chuckie's stepsister.[3]


Premise[]

The show revolves solely around the Eds, the other cul-de-sac children, and the Kanker sisters.[4] Subtle hints throughout the series pointed to where the cartoon took place, as it was revealed that the cul-de-sac is in a town called Peach Creek. As similar to the Peanuts series, no adults are seen, as well as the seeming lack of any other inhabitants and any other possible relations; besides Sarah being Ed's little sister and a the running gag of Rolf and his mysterious family relations.

The Pickles are a mixed Jewish-Christian family. There are two episodes that reflect the Pickles' Jewish heritage, one episode deals with the Passover holiday and the other with Hanukkah (in addition to episodes about Christmas, Easter, Kwanzaa, etc.). These episodes have been praised by Jewish groups and are re-run every year on Nick at the appropriate holiday times and can also be purchased on VHS or DVD.Template:Citation needed


The show frequently makes meta-references and often breaks the fourth wall. Almost every episode contains references to pop culture, especially movies. All the episode tittles, except for the holiday specials, are popular sayings with a word replaced with the word Ed (for example, "Stop, Look, and Ed": Stop, Look, and Listen.) Some are also parodies of movie titles. In addition, the letters AKA, the abbreviation for the name of the company that produces the show (a.k.a. Cartoon), frequently appear in the show on license plates.[1] The kids have multi-colored tongues, because, as Danny Antonucci stated, kids are almost always eating something that turn their tongues different colors.[4] Most of the episodes begin with something completely unrelated to the storyline of the episode; this is to emphasize the spontaneity of childhood.[4] The number of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy is fixed at twelve. Until the debut of the movie "Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show" -where Eddy's adult brother was shown for the very first time -no other characters besides the main cast were ever seen. There is no given timeline for the show; Danny Antonucci has stated that he wanted the show to appeal to any generation.[5]

Production[]

Rugrats was Nickelodeon's second Nicktoon, debuting on the same day as Doug (which premiered before it) and The Ren and Stimpy Show (which debuted after). The first run of the series was produced from 1991 to 1993 before production went on a hiatus (episodes that had not yet been released at that point continued to be released through 1994). Between 1994 and 1995, only two Jewish-themed specials were produced, and the rest of the series aired in reruns. New episode production resumed in 1997, and the show aired in Nickelodeon's Snick block from 1997-2000. In terms of years on air, it is the longest lasting Nicktoon to date, at over fourteen years longevity, and did not cease production of new episodes until 2004. In terms of number of episodes, it is still in first, but by 2011 it will be surpassed by SpongeBob SquarePants, which will have 178 episodes by the end of its ninth season, barring a Rugrats revival or a SpongeBob cancellation.[6]
The Rugrats received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in a ceremony on June 28, 2001.


Ed, Edd n Eddy was animated wholly using new cel animation up until its fifth season. Though the show is still entirely hand-drawn, all cels are colored digitally as are most other series. The cels are shipped to Korea for creating the initial animation, and then later edited back at a.k.a. To give the impression of movement, Ed, Edd n Eddy uses shimmering character outlines similar to Squigglevision. The crawling lines are not nearly as active as those in Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, but are still visible.[7] Danny Antonucci calls it a "wobble", and likens it to cartoons of the 1930s where the film tended to be unstable and cause a similar effect.[4] The show airs in the UK on CBBC, CITV, Nicktoons, Nickelodeon UK and Nicktoonsters as well as in Canada on YTV. In Australia, it can be seen on Nickelodeon Australia (and, for a period, ABC Television).


Characters[]

On August 11, 2001, Rugrats celebrated its 10 year anniversary. The special/TV movie, Rugrats: All Growed Up was produced for the occasion. After the show, a special retrospective lookback aired, entitled Rugrats: Still Babies After All These Years. It was narrated by Amanda Bynes.


Main article: List of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy

According to an interview with Danny Antonucci (a special feature on the Season 1 DVD set), the characters were based on real people in his life. The personalities of Ed, Edd, and Eddy are based on personal traits of himself, and the activities of his two sons. The Eds also held personality traits of The Three Stooges, who were a comedy trio who's various characters they portrayed in each short subject film often try to create money-making schemes, but their plans end up backfiring them near the end of their films. The cul-de-sac kids were based on kids he grew up with. Antonucci also stated that he believed it was important to add Plank to the show, stating that he "thought it would be really cool to do the show with Plank taking on a character of his own" and to cause Jonny to do things he would usually never do.[8] He also stated that Rolf is strongly based on himself and his cousins, since he was part of an immigrant family, and grew up in a first generation foreign household with different customs and ways of living, compared to those born in Canada.[4] In a Cartoon Network podcast interview, Antonucci hinted at the Kanker sisters being based on someone from his personal life, as well.

DVD releases[]

The show ended in 2004. Two fairy-tale themed direct-to-video films based on the original series under the title, Rugrats: Tales from the Crib were planned and then released separately in 2005 and in 2006.

Theatrical films[]

In 1998, the first Rugrats film was released, entitled The Rugrats Movie, which introduced baby Dil, Tommy's little brother, onto the show. In 2000 the second movie, Rugrats in Paris: The Movie, was released, with two new characters introduced, Kimi and Kira. Kimi would become Chuckie's sister and Kira would become his new mother, after marrying his father. In 2003, the third movie, Rugrats Go Wild, was released. It was a crossover between the Rugrats and The Wild Thornberrys.[9]


Season releases[]

Reception[]

In a 1995 interview, Steven Spielberg referred to Rugrats as one of several shows that are the best children's programming at the time. Spielberg described Rugrats as "sort of a TV Peanuts of our time."[10] It was named the 92nd best animated series by IGN.[11] Jewish and Christian religion groups have given Rugrats high praises for their special holiday episodes. Rugrats were also considered a strongpoint in Nickelodeon's rise in the 1990s.[12][13][14][15]

Critical reaction[]

Nickelodeon and Amazon.com have struck a deal to produce DVDs of new and old Nickelodeon shows, through the CreateSpace service. Using a concept similar to print on demand, Amazon will be making the discs, cover art, and disc art itself. The complete first and second seasons of Rugrats are on sale.[19]


The reaction to Ed, Edd n Eddy is varied. Terrence Briggs of Animation World Magazine argued that every second of the show is "filler" and that the main characters are drawn as "products from the school of acid-trip caricature."[20]

After the review was published, support letters of the show started to pile up at Animation World Magazine's website. This caused the magazine to write a more positive review of Ed, Edd n Eddy, calling it a "smelly show with very different approaches."[7]

Film critic Maryann Johanson found the show a successful experiment in style but surprisingly infantile in content, opining: "Visually, Cartoon Network's kiddie entry Ed, Edd n Eddy is delightfully gonzo, its inventive animation style and garish colors reflecting the adolescent confusion of its identically named boy heroes.

This is animation that's, well, really animated."[22]

(majority are 2x11 minutes) Release Original network Cartoon Network Original release January 4, 1999 – November 8, 2009 External links Website Ed, Edd n Eddy is an original animated television series on Cartoon Network created by Danny Antonucci and produced by Canadian-based a.k.a. Cartoon. Ed, Edd n Eddy is one of Cartoon Network's longest running and is considered one of its most successful franchises[2][3] and the longest-running of the channel's original Cartoon Cartoons. The series revolves around three adolescent boys collectively known as "the Eds," who hang around in a suburban cul-de-sac. Unofficially led by Eddy, the Eds constantly scheme to make money off their peers, in order to purchase their favorite confectionery: jawbreakers. However, their plans usually fail, leaving them in various predicaments.

The series ended its 10 year run on Cartoon Network with the series finale movie "Ed Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show" on November 8, 2009, but reruns currently air on Cartoon Network.

As similar to the Peanuts series, no adults are seen, as well as the seeming lack of any other inhabitants and any other possible relations; besides Sarah being Ed's little sister and a the running gag of Rolf and his mysterious family relations.

Episode Format Main article: List of Ed, Edd n Eddy episodes File:EdTouchables.jpg The pilot episode title card: "The Ed-Touchables" The show frequently makes meta-references and often breaks the fourth wall. Almost every episode contains references to pop culture, especially movies. All the episode tittles, except for the holiday specials, are popular sayings with a word replaced with the word Ed (for example, "Stop, Look, and Ed": Stop, Look, and Listen.) Some are also parodies of movie titles. In addition, the letters AKA, the abbreviation for the name of the company that produces the show (a.k.a. Cartoon), frequently appear in the show on license plates.[2] The kids have multi-colored tongues, because, as Danny Antonucci stated, kids are almost always eating something that turn their tongues different colors.[4] Most of the episodes begin with something completely unrelated to the storyline of the episode; this is to emphasize the spontaneity of childhood.[4] The number of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy is fixed at twelve. Until the debut of the movie "Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show" -where Eddy's adult brother was shown for the very first time -no other characters besides the main cast were ever seen. There is no given timeline for the show; Danny Antonucci has stated that he wanted the show to appeal to any generation.[5]

Ed, Edd n Eddy was animated wholly using new cel animation up until its fifth season. Though the show is still entirely hand-drawn, all cels are colored digitally as are most other series. The cels are shipped to Korea for creating the initial animation, and then later edited back at a.k.a. To give the impression of movement, Ed, Edd n Eddy uses shimmering character outlines similar to Squigglevision. The crawling lines are not nearly as active as those in Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, but are still visible.[6] Danny Antonucci calls it a "wobble", and likens it to cartoons of the 1930s where the film tended to be unstable and cause a similar effect.[4]

Characters Main article: List of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy According to an interview with Danny Antonucci (a special feature on the Season 1 DVD set), the characters were based on real people in his life. The personalities of Ed, Edd, and Eddy are based on personal traits of himself, and the activities of his two sons. The Eds also held personality traits of The Three Stooges, who were a comedy trio who's various characters they portrayed in each short subject film often try to create money-making schemes, but their plans end up backfiring them near the end of their films. The cul-de-sac kids were based on kids he grew up with. Antonucci also stated that he believed it was important to add Plank to the show, stating that he "thought it would be really cool to do the show with Plank taking on a character of his own" and to cause Jonny to do things he would usually never do.[7] He also stated that Rolf is strongly based on himself and his cousins, since he was part of an immigrant family, and grew up in a first generation foreign household with different customs and ways of living, compared to those born in Canada.[4] In a Cartoon Network podcast interview, Antonucci hinted at the Kanker sisters being based on someone from his personal life, as well.

Terrence Briggs of Animation World Magazine argued that every second of the show is "filler" and that the main characters are drawn as "products from the school of acid-trip caricature."[11] After the review was published, support letters of the show started to pile up at Animation World Magazine's website. This caused the magazine to write a more positive review of Ed, Edd n Eddy, calling it a "smelly show with very different approaches."[6]

Film critic Maryann Johanson found the show a successful experiment in style but surprisingly infantile in content, opining: "Visually, Cartoon Network's kiddie entry Ed, Edd n Eddy is delightfully gonzo, its inventive animation style and garish colors reflecting the adolescent confusion of its identically named boy heroes. But their goofy misadventures hold little appeal for grownup cartoon fans -- this one is pretty much strictly for the kiddies."[12] David Cornelius considered the Eds adolescent equivalents of the Three Stooges,[13] believing: "The series revels in the sort of frantic, often gross humor kids love so much, and there's just enough oddball insanity at play to make adults giggle just as easily."[13] Cornelius also concurred that the "animation is colorful and intentionally bizarre; bold lines forming the characters and backgrounds wiggle and morph in a delirious haze. This is animation that's, well, really animated."[13]

Additional works File:The main characters from Ed, Edd n Eddy and Dexter's Laboratory Make a cameo, Foster's style.jpg Ed, Edd and Eddy look-alikes in the Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends episode "Eddie Monster". There have been other produced works in which the Eds would appear apart from their regular series airings. They have appeared in a Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends episode using Foster's styled animation, and made a short cameo in The Grim Adventures of the Kids Next Door. Also, they appeared in a small crossover poster during the credits of "The Grim Adventures of the Kids Next Door" entitled Ed, Edd n Mandy.

Shorts Cartoon Network has also produced shorts, some involving the Eds during commercial breaks. For a short while, Cartoon Network made a series of roughly 2-minute shorts called Ed, Eddy, Eduardo in which Eduardo from Foster's appeared in an Ed, Edd n Eddy episode.[citation needed] These shorts began airing on July 11, 2006 on Cartoon Network. There was also a short music video with stylized versions of Ed, Edd, Eddy and Sarah, entitled "The Incredible Shrinking Day" (aka "I'm Not Coming in Anymore" as listed on the Season 2 DVD), which aired on Cartoon Network in 2002 and 2003. In the video Sarah uses a potion to shrink the Eds to a size capable of playing in her dollhouse, with predictable results. Plank starred in a similar video called "My Best Friend Plank," which aired in 2002.[citation needed]

Special events There have been many specials in which Cartoon Network would run all day marathons for either a promotion or just a special airing for one of their shows. A marathon called The Best Day Edder aired from April 27 to April 28, 2007, in which every episode was shown in chronological order, ending with the previously unaired last episode of Season 5.

A special episode of Ed, Edd n Eddy aired on May 11, 2007 in the Cartoon Network event, Invaded, in which aliens invade Rolf's house. This alien invasion is in adjunct with the other Cartoon Network series Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, My Gym Partner's a Monkey, Camp Lazlo, and The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. The episode is part a mini-series that aired all 5 specials on May 28, 2007.

Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show Main article: List of Ed, Edd n Eddy special episodes At the San Diego Comic Con in July 2007 the show's creators announced that there will not be a sixth season of the series at this time since they were working on making a movie to conclude the series instead. The plot focuses on the Eds searching for Eddy's brother. The elusive character finally appears in the concluding segment of the film. The movie was complete on December 18, 2008. The movie finally aired in the United States on November 8, 2009, officially ending the series.

3:34 Happily Ever After is a fireworks and projection mapping show which debuted at the Magic Kingdom on May 12, 2017.[1][2] Unlike its predecessor, Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams, the show includes projection mapping across Cinderella Castle, lasers, and searchlights, in addition to pyrotechnics.[3] The show includes characters and music from a wide array of Disney films.[1] The music also includes a theme song adapted from Hong Kong Disneyland's 10th anniversary celebration (and its subsequent show Mickey and the Wondrous Book); the song is performed by Angie Keilhauer and Jordan Fisher.[4] The show was promised to feature the most technologically advanced projection mapping display in Disney Parks history.[5]

Show summary[]

Opening[]

A keyhole appears on Cinderella Castle. A narration says: "And they all lived happily ever after... Each of us has a dream, a heart’s desire. It calls to us. And when we’re brave enough to listen, and bold enough to pursue, that dream will lead us on a journey to discover who we’re meant to be. All we have to do is look inside our hearts and unlock the magic within..."

Magical pixie dust flows through the keyhole and covers the castle and surrounding turrets in royal red and gold as the Happily Ever After theme song plays.

Dreams[]

Introduced by Tiana, we see various Disney characters longing for their deepest desires – Ariel wishing to be ‘part of our world’, Remy for his own career as a cook in Paris, Rapunzel for freedom from her tower, and Quasimodo for one day to be ‘out there’ from the tower of Notre Dame.

Songs include: "Down in New Orleans (Prologue)", "Part of Your World", and "Out There".

Journey[]

Introduced by Merida, characters from Brave, A Bug's Life, Cars, Up, Finding Nemo, and Moana are shown embarking on their adventures.

Songs include: "Touch the Sky" and "How Far I'll Go".

Friendship[]

Introduced by Aladdin, this segment highlights the friendships shared by Disney characters from Tarzan, The Lion King, Toy Story, The Jungle Book, Wreck-It Ralph, Big Hero 6, Zootopia, Inside Out, Monsters Inc., and Aladdin. The segment comes full circle with a showstopping performance by the Genie.

Songs featured: "Trashin' the Camp", "Hakuna Matata", "You've Got a Friend in Me", "The Bare Necessities", "I've Got No Strings", "That’s What Friends Are For", and "Friend Like Me".

Love[]

Introduced by Olaf, a full moon rises across the castle that leads into romances and acts of love shared by characters from Wall-E, The Lion King, Tarzan, Zootopia, Finding Dory, Up, and Dumbo. The castle turns into a garden with waterfalls and then transitions to show silhouettes of Disney princes and princesses; floating lanterns from Tangled are seen covering the castle as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider duet and send their own lanterns to the top of the castle.

Songs featured are "Love is an Open Door", "Can You Feel the Love Tonight", "You'll Be in My Heart", "A Whole New World", and "I See the Light".

Adversity[]

Introduced by the Emperor of China from Mulan, the show becomes aggressive and loud, highlighting the climactic battles and challenges the characters face including epic scenes from The Incredibles, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Aladdin, Sleeping Beauty, and Pirates of the Caribbean. The castle and its surroundings are peppered with explosions as many more climactic scenes are shown. When it is over, the castle is left a flaming ruin with gaping holes in its sides.

Music featured include instrumental selections from Frozen and The Lion King, and "He's a Pirate".

Triumph[]

The visage constellation of Mufasa appears across a starry sky reminding us to “remember who [we] are”. As an inspirational version of "Go the Distance" from Hercules plays, turret by turret, the castle gradually repairs itself while we see the featured characters in their triumphant moments. As the music swells, the structure turns gold with stained-glass portraits of the characters, all of them accomplishing their 'happily ever after'.

Finale[]

The show ends with the narrator challenging the audience to unlock their own magic and make their dreams come true, just as the characters did. The keyhole reappears and a pixie flies from it, leaving a trail of dust around the central plaza. As the castle restores itself to red and gold, the pixie flies up to the highest spire, where it’s revealed to be Tinker Bell, making her flight over the park to the familiar refrain of "You Can Fly". The castle and illuminated central plaza change color as multi-color peony fireworks appear in the sky. The keyhole then turns and opens, unleashing a colorful final set of fireworks.

Ed, Edd n Eddy is an original animated television series created by Danny Antonucci and produced by Canadian-based a.k.a. Cartoon. It premiered on Cartoon Network on January 4, 1999. Ed, Edd n Eddy is one of Cartoon Network's longest running and most successful franchises[1][2] and the longest-running of the channel's original Cartoon Cartoons. The series revolves around three adolescent boys collectively known as "the Eds," who hang around in a suburban cul-de-sac. Unofficially led by Eddy, the Eds constantly scheme to make money off their peers, in order to purchase their favorite confectionery: jawbreakers. However, their plans usually fail, leaving them in various predicaments. The series' finale movie, Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show aired on November 8, 2009, officially ending the series.

Overview[]

Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó, and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon. The series premiered on August 11, 1991 and aired its last episode on June 8, 2004.


Ed, Edd n Eddy revolves solely around the Eds, the other cul-de-sac children, and the Kanker sisters.[3] Subtle hints throughout the series pointed to where the cartoon took place, as it was revealed that the cul-de-sac is in a town called Peach Creek. As similar to the Peanuts series, no adults are seen, as well as the seeming lack of any other inhabitants and any other possible relations besides Sarah being Ed's little sister and the running gag of Rolf and his mysterious family relations.

The show frequently makes meta-references and often breaks the fourth wall. Nearly every episode alludes to popular culture, especially toward motion pictures. All episode titles, except for the holiday specials, are popular sayings with a word replaced with the word Ed (for example, "Stop, Look, and Ed": Stop, Look, and Listen); and with some episodes parodying movie titles. In addition, the letters AKA, the abbreviation for the name of the company that produces the show (a.k.a. Cartoon), frequently appear in the show on license plates.[1] The kids have multi-colored tongues, because, as Danny Antonucci stated, kids are almost always eating something that turn their tongues different colors.[3] Most of the episodes begin with something completely unrelated to the storyline of the episode; this is to emphasize the spontaneity of childhood.[3] The number of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy is fixed at twelve. Until the debut of the movie "Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show"—where Eddy's adult brother was shown for the very first time—no other characters besides the main cast were ever seen. There is no given timeline for the show; Danny Antonucci has stated that he wanted the show to appeal to any generation.[4] The show focuses on eight babies, as well as a dog, and their day-to-day lives, usually involving common life experiences that become adventures in the babies' imaginations.[5][6] It was one of the first three Nicktoons and also aired on Nick Jr. in 1995.


Ed, Edd n Eddy was animated wholly using new cel animation up until its fifth season. Though the show is still entirely hand-drawn, all cels are colored digitally as are most other series. The cels are shipped to Korea for creating the initial animation, and then later edited back at a.k.a. To give the impression of movement, Ed, Edd n Eddy uses shimmering character outlines similar to Squigglevision. The crawling lines are not nearly as active as those in Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, but are still visible.[7] Danny Antonucci calls it a "wobble", and likens it to cartoons of the 1930s where the film tended to be unstable and cause a similar effect.[3]

The main babies. Clockwise from top: Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica, Lil, Phil, Dil, Kimi, and Susie.

The show originally revolved around four children (three boys and one girl) and a dog. The fearless brave leader Thomas "Tommy" Pickles (whose family moved from Akron, Ohio to their current location in California), the cautious toddler Charles "Chuckie" Finster who reluctantly agreed to venture out into the open, unsafe areas of the house, the twin-infants Phillip "Phil" and Lillian "Lil" DeVille who were ready for a new challenge, and Spike, Tommy's dog. The toddlers are able to communicate with each other through baby speak, although viewers can understand them, because it is 'translated'. A running gag in the show is that they mispronounce words or use poor grammar and their speaking is full of malapropisms. An example of this is using the word "poopetrator" instead of "perpetrator" in "The Trial" episode. The group is often reluctantly joined by Tommy's cousin, Angelica Pickles. At three years old, Angelica is able to communicate and understand language from both the toddlers and the adults, which she often uses as an advantage when she wants to manipulate either party. She is usually very mean to the babies. Susie Carmichael, who lives across the street from the Pickles, is also able to communicate on the same level as Angelica, though she is not manipulative. As a result of this, as well as being favored by the babies, she often clashes with Angelica.[8]


According to an interview with Danny Antonucci (a special feature on the Season 1 DVD set), the characters were based on real people in his life. The personalities of Ed, Edd, and Eddy are based on personal traits of himself, and the activities of his two sons. The Eds also held personality traits of The Three Stooges, who were a comedy trio whose various characters they portrayed in each short subject film often try to create money-making schemes, but their plans end up backfiring near the end of their films. The cul-de-sac kids were based on kids he grew up with. Antonucci also stated that he believed it was important to add Plank to the show, stating that he "thought it would be really cool to do the show with Plank taking on a character of his own" and to cause Jonny to do things he would usually never do.[9] He also stated that Rolf is strongly based on himself and his cousins, since he was part of an immigrant family, and grew up in a first generation foreign household with different customs and ways of living, compared to those born in Canada.[3] In a Cartoon Network podcast interview, Antonucci hinted at the Kanker sisters being based on someone from his personal life, as well. After The Rugrats Movie (1998), in which Tommy's baby brother Dylan "Dil" Pickles is born, he was soon added as a character on the show. As a 1 year old baby, Dil is not able to communicate with anyone. Later after Rugrats in Paris: The Movie (2000) was released, Kimi Finster was added as a character. She is Chuckie's stepsister.[10]


Episodes[]

Leaving the safety of their own playpen, the children would explore their surroundings and try to make sense out of what the adults are doing. The babies often manage to get away with meandering off and going on escapades, for the reason that Tommy’s daddy, Stu, is more often than not trying to create toys downstairs in the basement. Tommy's mother, Didi, is normally reading the most modern good-parenting guide too actively to take any kind of notice, and his paternal grandfather, Lou, is customarily sleeping in front of the television, oblivious to their antics.[11] While most of the time, the babies are in their playpen, they always manage to get out using a plastic screwdriver Tommy keeps in his diaper (unbeknownst to any of the adults). When they create any kind of mess or visible damage, they are almost never seen as the instigators, due to them being babies. If an older person is in the vicinity of the mess (usually Angelica), that individual is held accountable. The most treacherous escapade the babies embarked occured in The Rugrats Movie where they got lost in the forest going against a man-eating wolf and a pack of circus monkeys determined to steal their baby food.

Additional works[]

The Pickles are a mixed Jewish-Christian family. There are two episodes that reflect the Pickles' Jewish heritage, one episode deals with the Passover holiday and the other with Hanukkah (in addition to episodes about Christmas, Easter, Kwanzaa, etc.).[12][13]

Ed, Edd and Eddy look-alikes in the Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends episode "Eddie Monster".

There have been other produced works in which the Eds would appear apart from their regular series airings. They have appeared in a Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends episode using Foster's styled animation, and made a short cameo in The Grim Adventures of the Kids Next Door. Also, they appeared in a small crossover poster during the credits of "The Grim Adventures of the Kids Next Door" entitled Ed, Edd n Mandy.

Origins[]

Shorts[]

Cartoon Network has also produced shorts, some involving the Eds during commercial breaks. For a short while, Cartoon Network made a series of roughly 2-minute shorts called Ed, Eddy, Eduardo in which Eduardo from Foster's appeared in an Ed, Edd n Eddy episode.Template:Citation needed These shorts began airing on July 11, 2006 on Cartoon Network. There was also a short music video with stylized versions of Ed, Edd, Eddy and Sarah, entitled "The Incredible Shrinking Day" (aka "I'm Not Coming in Anymore" as listed on the Season 2 DVD), which aired on Cartoon Network in 2002 and 2003. In the video Sarah uses a potion to shrink the Eds to a size capable of playing in her dollhouse, with predictable results. Plank starred in a similar video called "My Best Friend Plank," which aired in 2002. Rugrats was formed by the then husband-and-wife duo of Gabor Csupo and Arlene Klasky, along with Paul Germain in 1989. Klasky-Csupo had a major animation firm at the time which also provided services for commercials and music videos. Klasky, Csupo, and Germain were also animating The Simpsons at the time, which they would continue to do until 1992. The trio decided to create their own series in reaction to a proclamation by the children's cable network Nickelodeon that they were to launch their own line of animated shows, which would be later called Nicktoons. With the comedic stimulation branching from the antics of Klasky and Csupo's infant children, the 6Template:Frac–minute pilot episode, "Tommy Pickles & the Great White Thing" (never to be aired), went into production.


Special events[]

Peter Chung, along with Klasky and Csupo, co-designed the characters and directed the series pilot, "Tommy Pickles And The Great White Thing," as well as the opening sequence. The production was completed in 1990 and they submitted it to Nickelodeon, who tested it with an audience of children. The feedback for the pilot episode was primarily positive. With that, the series went into production. Chuckie and Angelica were added as characters.


There have been many specials in which Cartoon Network would run all day marathons for either a promotion or just a special airing for one of their shows. A marathon called "The Best Day Edder" aired from April 27 to April 28, 2007, in which every episode was shown in chronological order, ending with the previously unaired last episode of Season 5.

A special episode of Ed, Edd n Eddy aired on May 11, 2007 in the Cartoon Network event, Invaded, in which aliens invade Rolf's house. This alien invasion is in adjunct with the other Cartoon Network series Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, My Gym Partner's a Monkey, Camp Lazlo, and The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. The episode is part a mini-series that aired all 5 specials on May 28, 2007. Paul Germain felt that the series needed a bully. Angelica was based on a bully in Germain's childhood, who was a girl. In addition to that, it was Germain who decided that Angelica would be a spoiled brat. Arlene Klasky, one of the show's creators initially did not like Angelica Pickles. Klasky also protested Angelica's actions in episodes like "Barbecue Story" (where she threw Tommy's ball over the fence).


Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show[]

In a New Yorker article, Klasky said, "I think she's a bully. I never liked Angelica." Klasky never fully approved of her character development. Her bullying caused Arlene to disdain her. Angelica started to become a problem for the some of the Rugrats staff. In some instances, her voice, Cheryl Chase, had trouble portraying a mean Angelica. To help Chase out, Steve Viksen, one of the writers, would mention that Angelica was the series's J.R. Ewing.


At the San Diego Comic Con in July 2007 the show's creators announced that there will not be a sixth season of the series at this time since they were working on making a movie to conclude the series instead. The plot focuses on the Eds searching for Eddy's brother. The elusive character finally appears in the concluding segment of the film. The movie was complete on December 18, 2008. The movie finally aired in the United States on November 8, 2009, officially ending the series. After the episode "The Trial," Klasky complained that the Rugrats were starting to act too old for their age. Csupo often acted as a mediator in arguments between Klasky and the writers, with the writers often winning. Some of the offscreen tensions ultimately found their way into the scripts and, naturally, into the show. In 1993, shortly before Nick premiered the last of the original 65, production of new episodes ceased, and most of the Rugrats writing team left Klasky-Csupo. After the first run days were over, Nick had enough episodes to show every day, and did just that in 1994, scheduling the show in the early evening, when both kids and parents will be watching. After 3 years of repeats, the show went back into production. However, the tensions between Klasky-Csupo and their former writers still existed.


After The Rugrats Movie and seeing the "new" Angelica in the film, Klasky changed her tune: "I think she's great for the show; I love Angelica."[14]


Production[]

Rugrats was Nickelodeon's second Nicktoon, debuting on the same day as Doug (which premiered before it) and The Ren and Stimpy Show (which debuted after). The first run of the series was produced from 1991 to 1993 before production went on a hiatus (episodes that had not yet been released at that point continued to be released through 1994). Between 1995 and 1996, only two Jewish-themed specials were aired, and the rest of the series aired in reruns. Production on new episodes began 1997, and the show aired in Nickelodeon's Snick block from 1997 to 2000. As of 2011, it is the longest-lasting Nicktoon to date, at over fourteen years longevity, and did not cease production of new episodes until 2004. In terms of number of episodes, it is still in first, but by 2011 it will be surpassed by SpongeBob SquarePants, which will have 178 episodes by the end of its eighth season, barring a Rugrats revival or a SpongeBob cancellation; SpongeBob will reach Rugrats in terms of years on air in 2013.[15]


On August 11, 2001, Rugrats celebrated its 10-year anniversary. The special/TV movie, Rugrats: All Growed Up was produced for the occasion. After the show, a special retrospective lookback aired, entitled "Rugrats: Still Babies After All These Years." It was narrated by Amanda Bynes. Nickelodeon approved of its ratings and popularity so much (about 70% of viewers with cable tuned in), they eventually commissioned a full series, All Grown Up, which ran from 2003 to 2008.


Rugrats ended on June 8, 2004, along with fellow Nicktoon, Hey Arnold. After the run, two fairy-tale themed direct-to-video films based on the original series under the title, Rugrats: Tales from the Crib were produced and then released separately in 2005 and in 2006.


Voice actors[]

Through its full run, Rugrats, occupied several main voice actors. E.G. Daily provided the voice of Tommy Pickles, except in the unaired pilot where Tami Holbrook provided the voice; Christine Cavanaugh was the original voice of Chuckie Finster, but left after 2001 for personal reasons and was subsequently replaced by Nancy Cartwright in 2002. The fraternal twins, Phil and Lil (as well as their mother, Betty) were voiced by Kath Soucie; Dil Pickles (and Timmy McNulty) were voiced by Tara Strong. Cheryl Chase initially auditioned for the role of Tommy, but was passed up. When the show came to series, she was brought on board to be cast as the voice of Angelica Pickles. Dionne Quan was the voice of Kimi Finster, however as she is legally blind, in order to do the voice, the producers had to interpret the scripts into Braille, so she could read them by sensing the bumps with her fingers. Susie was primarily voiced by Cree Summer, though in two episodes where she could not be in attendance E.G. Daily filled in.[16] Other regular voice actors included Melanie Chartoff as Didi Pickles, Jack Riley as Stu Pickles, Tress MacNeille as Charlotte Pickles, and Michael Bell as Drew Pickles and Chaz Finster. David Doyle provided the voice of Grandpa Lou Pickles until his death in 1997, where Joe Alaskey took over till the end of the series. In 2000, Debbie Reynolds joined the cast as Lulu Pickles, Lou's second wife, and remained until the series' end.


Writing style[]

With Rugrats it usually took a few months to make an episode, for the story has to get written, and then approved. The next process consisted of voice recording, storyboarding, pre-eliminating animation, overseas production & delivery, editing and polishing. All of that had to happen even before Klasky-Csupo sent the master tapes to Nick. In addition, fine animation took time to make. During the first six seasons of Rugrats it was, primarily divided into two eleven-minute episodes. After the second movie, during season 7, Rugrats made a change with a different format that consisted of three episodes per show, though it returned to its original two-episode-per-show format in the final two seasons.[17]

Reception[]

Nickelodeon and Amazon.com have struck a deal to produce DVDs of new and old Nickelodeon shows, through the CreateSpace service. Using a concept similar to print on demand, Amazon made the discs, cover art, and disc art itself. The complete first and second seasons of Rugrats were released on June 2, 2009 along with The Fairly OddParents first and second seasons.[21]


Critical reaction to Ed, Edd n Eddy is often varied. Terrence Briggs of Animation World Magazine argued that every second of the show is "filler" and that the main characters are drawn as "products from the school of acid-trip caricature."[22] After the review was published, support letters of the show started to pile up at Animation World Magazine's website. This caused the magazine to write a more positive review of Ed, Edd n Eddy, calling it a "fresh show with very different approaches."[7]

Film critic Maryann Johanson found the show a successful experiment in style but surprisingly infantile in content, opining: "Visually, Cartoon Network's kiddie entry Ed, Edd n Eddy is delightfully gonzo, its inventive animation style and garish colors reflecting the adolescent confusion of its identically named boy heroes. But their goofy misadventures hold little appeal for grownup cartoon fans -- this one is pretty much strictly for the kiddies."[23] David Cornelius considered the Eds adolescent equivalents of the Three Stooges,[24] believing: "The series revels in the sort of frantic, often gross humor kids love so much, and there's just enough oddball insanity at play to make adults giggle just as easily."[24] Cornelius also concurred that the "animation is colorful and intentionally bizarre; bold lines forming the characters and backgrounds wiggle and morph in a delirious haze. This is animation that's, well, really animated."[24]

Reception and achievements[]

Critical reception[]

Since its debut in 1991, Rugrats generally received positive reviews from critics and fans. In a 1995 interview, Steven Spielberg referred to the show as one of several shows that are the best children's programming at the time. Spielberg described Rugrats as "sort of a TV Peanuts of our time."[25] It was named the 92nd-best animated series by IGN.[26] Rugrats was also considered a strong point in Nickelodeon's rise in the 1990s.[27][28][29][30] In a press release celebrating the show's 10th anniversary, Cyma Zarghami stated, "During the past decade, 'Rugrats' has evolved from a ratings powerhouse, being the number one children's show on TV, to pop icon status. It has secured a place in the hearts of both kids and adults, who see it from their own point of view".[31] According to Nickelodeon producers, this show made them the number-one channel in the 1990s.[32] Jeff Jarvis reviewed Rugrats and stated, "When the Simpsons was a segment on The Tracey Ullman Show, it was just a belch joke with hip pretensions. As a series, it grew flesh and guts. It was my favorite cartoon...until I discovered Nickelodeon's Rugrats, a sardonic, sly, kid's eye view of the world that skewers thirty-something parents and (The) Cosby (Show) kids."[33]


Popularity, appeal, and controversy[]

Template:See also


When Rugrats débuted in 1991, it was not as hugely popular as it would later become. When production went on a hiatus from 1994, Nick began showing Rugrats repeats everyday. More and more people began to take notice of the show, with ratings and popularity for Rugrats and Nick rising. From 1995 to 2000, it was the highest-rated show on Nickelodeon and the highest rated kids' show. The show experienced a wide diverse audience consisting of kids, teenagers and adults alike. Rugrats was successful in receiving an average of 26.7 million viewers every week: 14.7 million kids (2-11), 3.2 million teens (12-17), and 8.8 million adults (18 and over). In addition, Rugrats was seen internationally in over 76 countries.[31] It was the only one of the three original Nicktoons that continued in the 2000s, and had its own spin-off. It is the most successful of the three original Nicktoons. While the other Nicktoons were popular during their run, Doug would later slip out of Nick's hands and into Disney's; and Ren and Stimpy would crash and burn in a creative rights dispute (only to return several years later in a much raunchier version on another network). During its run, Rugrats was enjoyed by a number of famous stars including Alexa Vega, Daryl Sabara, Amanda Bynes, Aaron Carter, Ray Romano, Nivea and Bow Wow.[34]


With 172 episodes produced over the course of nearly 13 years, Rugrats remains the longest-running Nicktoon to date. SpongeBob SquarePants will surpass both benchmarks when it airs its 173rd episode on February 27, 2012.


Rugrats was one of very few shows that pictured observant, identifiably Jewish families.[35] Jewish and Christian religion groups gave the show high praises for their special holiday episodes. Nonetheless, at one point the Anti-Defamation League and the Washington Post editorial page castigated the series for its depiction of the Pickles grandparents, who purportedly looked like Nazi caricatures.[35]

Rugrats in other media[]

Films[]

In 1998, The Rugrats Movie was released, which introduced baby Dil, Tommy's little brother, onto the show. It grossed in worldwide results, $140,894,675, making it a very large box office success, considering its modest $24 million budget. Not only was the movie a commercial success, the film earned mixed to positive reviews from critics. As of 2011, it remains the highest grossing Rugrats film to date. In 2000 a sequel, Rugrats in Paris: The Movie, was released, with two new characters introduced, Kimi and Kira. Kimi would become Chuckie's sister and Kira would become his new mother, after marrying his father. While it received a positive reception, it did not gross as high as the first film.

In 2003, Rugrats Go Wild was released. It was a crossover between the Rugrats and The Wild Thornberrys.[48] It is the lowest grossing Rugrats film to date.


Comics[]

From 1998 to 2003, Nick produced a Rugrats comic strip, which was distributed through Creator's Syndicate. Initially written by show-writer Scott Gray and drawn by comic book artist Steve Crespo, with Rob Armstrong as editor. Will Blyberg came on board shortly after as inker. By the end of '98, Lee Nordling, who had joined as a contributing gag writer, took over as editor. Nordling hired extra writers, including Gordon Kent, Scott Roberts, Chuck Kim, J. Torres, Marc Bilgrey, and John Zakour, as well new artists including Gary Fields, Tim Harkins, Vince Giaranno, and Scott Roberts. Stu Chaifetz colored the Sunday strips. The Rugrats strip started out in many papers, but as often happens with spin-off strips, soon slowed down. It's still seen in some papers in re-runs. Two paperback collections were published by Andrews McMeel It's A Jungle-Gym Out There and A Baby's Work Is Never Done.


During this time, Nickelodeon also published 30 issues of an all Rugrats comic magazine. Most of these were edited by Frank Pittarese and Dave Roman, and featured stories and art by the comic strip creators and others. The last nine issues featured cover art by Scott Roberts, who wrote and drew many of the stories. Other writers included Roman, Chris Duffy, Patrick M. O'Connell & Joyce Mann, and Jim Spivey. Other artists included Joe Staton and Ernie Colón. The magazine also included short stories, many by Pittarese, and games, as well as reprints from an earlier, UK produced Rugrats comic.


Finally, Nick produced a special, 50 page comic magazine retelling of the film Rugrats In Paris, edited by Pittarese and Roman, with script by Scott Gray, pencils by Scott Roberts, and inks by Adam DeKraker.

Live performances[]

Rugrats—A Live Adventure was a show about Angelica's constant attempts to scare Chuckie. To help Chuckie combat his wide range of fears, Tommy invents a magic wand called the "People-ator" to make Chuckie brave. Angelica, however, wants Chuckie to stay scared, so she steals Tommy's wand. The Rugrats try to get it back, but to no avail. Angelica becomes Princess of the World. Eventually, Chuckie becomes brave thanks to the help of Susie, Mr. Flashlight and the audience.[49] Many songs were included in the play, including the theme song. The music was met with a rather mixed reception, which applause was tepid at best. However, the dancing was much better received. In addition, as soon as a character approached the stage to engage the crowd, the response from the kids was wild. Chuckie's pleas help from the audience to stop Angelica's megalomaniacal march toward world domination elicited much excitement and response. Overall, despite the criticism, the show was well received.[50] The show had two 40-minute acts, with a 20-minute intermission (or a commercial break).


Merchandise[]

Merchandise that was based on Rugrats varied from video games toothpaste, Kellogg’s cereal to slippers, puzzles, pajamas, jewelry, wrapping paper, Fruit Snacks, Inflatable balls, watches, pens, pencils, markers, cookie jars, key rings, action figures, and bubblegum.

The show also managed to spawn a popular merchandise line at Wal-Mart, K-Mart, Target, EBay, Hot Topic, JCPenney, Toys "R" Us, Mattel, Barnes & Noble and Basic Fun, just to name a few.[51]


The Rugrats had their own cereal made by Post called Reptar Crunch Cereal. The Rugrats and Reptar were predominantly featured on the front, there's a board game on the back, and a special $3 rebate for Runaway Reptar on the side. This cereal was released for a limited time only, sold at US supermarkets 8/1/99 to 9/15/99 only, and not all supermarkets carried the cereal. To memorialize the movie, Rugrats in Paris, another Rugrats-based cereal came out in October 2000. Simply called the Rugrats in Paris Cereal, it has a similar appearance to Trix; it's a sweetened, multi-grain cereal with small-round bits in plain, red, purple and green. Small Eiffel Towers could also be seen.[52]

Rugrats made fast-food appearances as well with the most appearances being on

Burger King. Their first fast food appearance was in 1994, when the Hardee's fast food chain offered a collection of Nicktoons toys as premiums that were included with kids' meals at Hardee's. All 4 Nicktoons at that time were featured—Ren & Stimpy, Rocko’s Modern Life, Doug and Rugrats. Other food items that feature Rugrats were Fruit Snacks, Macaroni and Cheese, Bubble Gum and Campbell's Rugrats Pasta with Chicken and Broth.[53]


Video games[]

In their first tie-in with Burger King, 5 Rugrats toys were offered with their Kids Club meals, a different one with each meal. Each toy came with a 12-page (including covers) miniature version of Nickelodeon Magazine, which featured the toy's instructions, word search, picture puzzle, "Say What?”,a scrambled word puzzle, a coupon for Oral-B Rugrats toothpaste & toothbrush, and entry blanks to subscribe to Rugrats Comic Adventures, Nick Magazine and the Kids Club. From 1998 till 2003, "Rugrats" based-products included watches and various toys.[54]


There are three video games based on the series. Ed, Edd n Eddy: Jawbreakers! was released on September 15, 2002[55] for the Game Boy Advance. Ed, Edd n Eddy: The Mis-Edventures was released on October 31, 2005 for the Nintendo GameCube, PlayStation 2, Xbox, Game Boy Advance, and the PC to mixed reviews and moderate success. Most recently Ed, Edd n Eddy: Scam of the Century was released for the Nintendo DS on October 26, 2007. Additionally, characters and locations from the show make appearances in Cartoon Network based video games. The cul-de-sac is featured in the game Cartoon Network: Block Party, where Eddy and Sarah are playable characters. The Eds and Jonny appeared in Cartoon Network Speedway as playable characters.

All three Eds have been confirmed as NPCs in the MMOG Cartoon Network Universe: FusionFall. Their artwork for the game is viewable on the game's main website. They also appearance as Nanos (items that help the user or his/her party) [56]

Release Original network Cartoon Network Picture format 4:3 SDTV Original release January 4, 1999 – November 8, 2009 External links Website Ed, Edd n Eddy is an original animated television series created by Danny Antonucci and produced by Canadian-based a.k.a. Cartoon. It premiered on Cartoon Network on January 4, 1999. Ed, Edd n Eddy is one of Cartoon Network's longest running and most successful franchises[2][3] and the longest-running of the channel's original Cartoon Cartoons. The series revolves around three adolescent boys collectively known as "the Eds," who hang around in a suburban cul-de-sac. Unofficially led by Eddy, the Eds constantly scheme to make money off their peers, in order to purchase their favorite confectionery: jawbreakers. However, their plans usually fail, leaving them in various predicaments. The series' finale movie, Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show aired on November 8, 2009, officially ending the series.


Contents 1 Overview 2 Characters 3 Episodes 4 Additional works 4.1 Shorts 4.2 Special events 4.3 Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show 5 Reception 5.1 Awards and nominations 6 Home video releases 7 Video games 8 References 9 External links Overview Ed, Edd n Eddy revolves solely around the Eds, the other cul-de-sac children, and the Kanker sisters.[4] Subtle hints throughout the series pointed to where the cartoon took place, as it was revealed that the cul-de-sac is in a town called Peach Creek. As similar to the Peanuts series, no adults are seen, as well as the seeming lack of any other inhabitants and any other possible relations besides Sarah being Ed's little sister and the running gag of Rolf and his mysterious family relations.

The show frequently makes meta-references and often breaks the fourth wall. Nearly every episode alludes to popular culture, especially toward motion pictures. All episode titles, except for the holiday specials, are popular sayings with a word replaced with the word Ed (for example, "Stop, Look, and Ed": Stop, Look, and Listen); and with some episodes parodying movie titles. In addition, the letters AKA, the abbreviation for the name of the company that produces the show (a.k.a. Cartoon), frequently appear in the show on license plates.[2] The kids have multi-colored tongues, because, as Danny Antonucci stated, kids are almost always eating something that turn their tongues different colors.[4] Most of the episodes begin with something completely unrelated to the storyline of the episode; this is to emphasize the spontaneity of childhood.[4] The number of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy is fixed at twelve. Until the debut of the movie "Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show"—where Eddy's adult brother was shown for the very first time—no other characters besides the main cast were ever seen. There is no given timeline for the show; Danny Antonucci has stated that he wanted the show to appeal to any generation.[5]

Ed, Edd n Eddy was animated wholly using new cel animation up until its fifth season. Though the show is still entirely hand-drawn, all cels are colored digitally as are most other series. The cels are shipped to Korea for creating the initial animation, and then later edited back at a.k.a. To give the impression of movement, Ed, Edd n Eddy uses shimmering character outlines similar to Squigglevision. The crawling lines are not nearly as active as those in Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, but are still visible.[6] Danny Antonucci calls it a "wobble", and likens it to cartoons of the 1930s where the film tended to be unstable and cause a similar effect.[4]

Characters Main article: List of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy According to an interview with Danny Antonucci (a special feature on the Season 1 DVD set), the characters were based on real people in his life. The personalities of Ed, Edd, and Eddy are based on personal traits of himself, and the activities of his two sons. The Eds also held personality traits of The Three Stooges, who were a comedy trio whose various characters they portrayed in each short subject film often try to create money-making schemes, but their plans end up backfiring near the end of their films. The cul-de-sac kids were based on kids he grew up with. Antonucci also stated that he believed it was important to add Plank to the show, stating that he "thought it would be really cool to do the show with Plank taking on a character of his own" and to cause Jonny to do things he would usually never do.[7] He also stated that Rolf is strongly based on himself and his cousins, since he was part of an immigrant family, and grew up in a first generation foreign household with different customs and ways of living, compared to those born in Canada.[4] In a Cartoon Network podcast interview, Antonucci hinted at the Kanker sisters being based on someone from his personal life, as well.

Episodes Main article: List of Ed, Edd n Eddy episodes Additional works File:The main characters from Ed, Edd n Eddy and Dexter's Laboratory Make a cameo, Foster's style.jpg Ed, Edd and Eddy look-alikes in the Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends episode "Eddie Monster". There have been other produced works in which the Eds would appear apart from their regular series airings. They have appeared in a Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends episode using Foster's styled animation, and made a short cameo in The Grim Adventures of the Kids Next Door. Also, they appeared in a small crossover poster during the credits of "The Grim Adventures of the Kids Next Door" entitled Ed, Edd n Mandy.

Shorts Cartoon Network has also produced shorts, some involving the Eds during commercial breaks. For a short while, Cartoon Network made a series of roughly 2-minute shorts called Ed, Eddy, Eduardo in which Eduardo from Foster's appeared in an Ed, Edd n Eddy episode.[citation needed] These shorts began airing on July 11, 2006 on Cartoon Network. There was also a short music video with stylized versions of Ed, Edd, Eddy and Sarah, entitled "The Incredible Shrinking Day" (aka "I'm Not Coming in Anymore" as listed on the Season 2 DVD), which aired on Cartoon Network in 2002 and 2003. In the video Sarah uses a potion to shrink the Eds to a size capable of playing in her dollhouse, with predictable results. Plank starred in a similar video called "My Best Friend Plank," which aired in 2002.

Special events There have been many specials in which Cartoon Network would run all day marathons for either a promotion or just a special airing for one of their shows. A marathon called "The Best Day Edder" aired from April 27 to April 28, 2007, in which every episode was shown in chronological order, ending with the previously unaired last episode of Season 5.

A special episode of Ed, Edd n Eddy aired on May 11, 2007 in the Cartoon Network event, Invaded, in which aliens invade Rolf's house. This alien invasion is in adjunct with the other Cartoon Network series Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends, My Gym Partner's a Monkey, Camp Lazlo, and The Grim Adventures of Billy & Mandy. The episode is part a mini-series that aired all 5 specials on May 28, 2007.

Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show At the San Diego Comic Con in July 2007 the show's creators announced that there will not be a sixth season of the series at this time since they were working on making a movie to conclude the series instead. The plot focuses on the Eds searching for Eddy's brother. The elusive character finally appears in the concluding segment of the film. The movie was complete on December 18, 2008. The movie finally aired in the United States on November 8, 2009, officially ending the series.

Country Release Scandinavia May 31, 2009 Australia June 5, 2009 Southeast Asia June 13, 2009 Italy[8][9] July 16, 2009 United States November 8, 2009 Poland December 30, 2009 Latin America January, 2011 Reception Critical reaction to Ed, Edd n Eddy is often varied. Terrence Briggs of Animation World Magazine argued that every second of the show is "filler" and that the main characters are drawn as "products from the school of acid-trip caricature."[10] After the review was published, support letters of the show started to pile up at Animation World Magazine's website. This caused the magazine to write a more positive review of Ed, Edd n Eddy, calling it a "fresh show with very different approaches."[6]

Film critic Maryann Johanson found the show a successful experiment in style but surprisingly infantile in content, opining: "Visually, Cartoon Network's kiddie entry Ed, Edd n Eddy is delightfully gonzo, its inventive animation style and garish colors reflecting the adolescent confusion of its identically named boy heroes. But their goofy misadventures hold little appeal for grownup cartoon fans -- this one is pretty much strictly for the kiddies."[11] David Cornelius considered the Eds adolescent equivalents of the Three Stooges,[12] believing: "The series revels in the sort of frantic, often gross humor kids love so much, and there's just enough oddball insanity at play to make adults giggle just as easily."[12] Cornelius also concurred that the "animation is colorful and intentionally bizarre; bold lines forming the characters and backgrounds wiggle and morph in a delirious haze. This is animation that's, well, really animated."[12]

3:34 Happily Ever After is a fireworks and projection mapping show which debuted at the Magic Kingdom on May 12, 2017.[57][58] Unlike its predecessor, Wishes: A Magical Gathering of Disney Dreams, the show includes projection mapping across Cinderella Castle, lasers, and searchlights, in addition to pyrotechnics.[59] The show includes characters and music from a wide array of Disney films.[57] The music also includes a theme song adapted from Hong Kong Disneyland's 10th anniversary celebration (and its subsequent show Mickey and the Wondrous Book); the song is performed by Angie Keilhauer and Jordan Fisher.[60] The show was promised to feature the most technologically advanced projection mapping display in Disney Parks history.[61]

Show summary[]

Opening[]

A keyhole appears on Cinderella Castle. A narration says: "And they all lived happily ever after... Each of us has a dream, a heart’s desire. It calls to us. And when we’re brave enough to listen, and bold enough to pursue, that dream will lead us on a journey to discover who we’re meant to be. All we have to do is look inside our hearts and unlock the magic within..."

Magical pixie dust flows through the keyhole and covers the castle and surrounding turrets in royal red and gold as the Happily Ever After theme song plays.

Dreams[]

Introduced by Tiana, we see various Disney characters longing for their deepest desires – Ariel wishing to be ‘part of our world’, Remy for his own career as a cook in Paris, Rapunzel for freedom from her tower, and Quasimodo for one day to be ‘out there’ from the tower of Notre Dame.

Songs include: "Down in New Orleans (Prologue)", "Part of Your World", and "Out There".

Journey[]

Introduced by Merida, characters from Brave, A Bug's Life, Cars, Up, Finding Nemo, and Moana are shown embarking on their adventures.

Songs include: "Touch the Sky" and "How Far I'll Go".

Friendship[]

Introduced by Aladdin, this segment highlights the friendships shared by Disney characters from Tarzan, The Lion King, Toy Story, The Jungle Book, Wreck-It Ralph, Big Hero 6, Zootopia, Inside Out, Monsters Inc., and Aladdin. The segment comes full circle with a showstopping performance by the Genie.

Songs featured: "Trashin' the Camp", "Hakuna Matata", "You've Got a Friend in Me", "The Bare Necessities", "I've Got No Strings", "That’s What Friends Are For", and "Friend Like Me".

Love[]

Introduced by Olaf, a full moon rises across the castle that leads into romances and acts of love shared by characters from Wall-E, The Lion King, Tarzan, Zootopia, Finding Dory, Up, and Dumbo. The castle turns into a garden with waterfalls and then transitions to show silhouettes of Disney princes and princesses; floating lanterns from Tangled are seen covering the castle as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider duet and send their own lanterns to the top of the castle.

Songs featured are "Love is an Open Door", "Can You Feel the Love Tonight", "You'll Be in My Heart", "A Whole New World", and "I See the Light".

Adversity[]

Introduced by the Emperor of China from Mulan, the show becomes aggressive and loud, highlighting the climactic battles and challenges the characters face including epic scenes from The Incredibles, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King, Aladdin, Sleeping Beauty, and Pirates of the Caribbean. The castle and its surroundings are peppered with explosions as many more climactic scenes are shown. When it is over, the castle is left a flaming ruin with gaping holes in its sides.

Music featured include instrumental selections from Frozen and The Lion King, and "He's a Pirate".

Triumph[]

The visage constellation of Mufasa appears across a starry sky reminding us to “remember who [we] are”. As an inspirational version of "Go the Distance" from Hercules plays, turret by turret, the castle gradually repairs itself while we see the featured characters in their triumphant moments. As the music swells, the structure turns gold with stained-glass portraits of the characters, all of them accomplishing their 'happily ever after'.

Finale[]

The show ends with the narrator challenging the audience to unlock their own magic and make their dreams come true, just as the characters did. The keyhole reappears and a pixie flies from it, leaving a trail of dust around the central plaza. As the castle restores itself to red and gold, the pixie flies up to the highest spire, where it’s revealed to be Tinker Bell, making her flight over the park to the familiar refrain of "You Can Fly". The castle and illuminated central plaza change color as multi-color peony fireworks appear in the sky. The keyhole then turns and opens, unleashing a colorful final set of fireworks.

Ed, Edd n Eddy is an original animated television series created by Danny Antonucci and produced by Canadian-based a.k.a. Cartoon. It premiered on Cartoon Network on January 4, 1999. Ed, Edd n Eddy is one of Cartoon Network's longest running and most successful franchises[1][2] and the longest-running of the channel's original Cartoon Cartoons. The series revolves around three adolescent boys collectively known as "the Eds," who hang around in a suburban cul-de-sac. Unofficially led by Eddy, the Eds constantly scheme to make money off their peers, in order to purchase their favorite confectionery: jawbreakers. However, their plans usually fail, leaving them in various predicaments. The series' finale movie, Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show aired on November 8, 2009, officially ending the series.

Overview[]

Rugrats is an American animated television series created by Arlene Klasky, Gábor Csupó, and Paul Germain for Nickelodeon. The series premiered on August 11, 1991 and aired its last episode on June 8, 2004.


Ed, Edd n Eddy revolves solely around the Eds, the other cul-de-sac children, and the Kanker sisters.[3] Subtle hints throughout the series pointed to where the cartoon took place, as it was revealed that the cul-de-sac is in a town called Peach Creek. As similar to the Peanuts series, no adults are seen, as well as the seeming lack of any other inhabitants and any other possible relations besides Sarah being Ed's little sister and the running gag of Rolf and his mysterious family relations.

The show frequently makes meta-references and often breaks the fourth wall. Nearly every episode alludes to popular culture, especially toward motion pictures. All episode titles, except for the holiday specials, are popular sayings with a word replaced with the word Ed (for example, "Stop, Look, and Ed": Stop, Look, and Listen); and with some episodes parodying movie titles. In addition, the letters AKA, the abbreviation for the name of the company that produces the show (a.k.a. Cartoon), frequently appear in the show on license plates.[1] The kids have multi-colored tongues, because, as Danny Antonucci stated, kids are almost always eating something that turn their tongues different colors.[3] Most of the episodes begin with something completely unrelated to the storyline of the episode; this is to emphasize the spontaneity of childhood.[3] The number of characters in Ed, Edd n Eddy is fixed at twelve. Until the debut of the movie "Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show"—where Eddy's adult brother was shown for the very first time—no other characters besides the main cast were ever seen. There is no given timeline for the show. The show focuses on eight babies, as well as a dog, and their day-to-day lives, usually involving common life experiences that become adventures in the babies' imaginations.[4][5] It was one of the first three Nicktoons and also aired on Nick Jr. in 1995.


Ed, Edd n Eddy was animated wholly using new cel animation up until its fifth season. Though the show is still entirely hand-drawn, all cels are colored digitally as are most other series. The cels are shipped to Korea for creating the initial animation, and then later edited back at a.k.a. To give the impression of movement, Ed, Edd n Eddy uses shimmering character outlines similar to Squigglevision. The crawling lines are not nearly as active as those in Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist, but are still visible.[6] Danny Antonucci calls it a "wobble", and likens it to cartoons of the 1930s where the film tended to be unstable and cause a similar effect.[3]

The main babies. Clockwise from top: Tommy, Chuckie, Angelica, Lil, Phil, Dil, Kimi, and Susie.

The show originally revolved around four children (three boys and one girl) and a dog. The fearless brave leader Thomas "Tommy" Pickles (whose family moved from Akron, Ohio to their current location in California), the cautious toddler Charles "Chuckie" Finster who reluctantly agreed to venture out into the open, unsafe areas of the house, the twin-infants Phillip "Phil" and Lillian "Lil" DeVille who were ready for a new challenge, and Spike, Tommy's dog. The toddlers are able to communicate with each other through baby speak, although viewers can understand them, because it is 'translated'. A running gag in the show is that they mispronounce words or use poor grammar and their speaking is full of malapropisms. An example of this is using the word "poopetrator" instead of "perpetrator" in "The Trial" episode. The group is often reluctantly joined by Tommy's cousin, Angelica Pickles. At three years old, Angelica is able to communicate and understand language from both the toddlers and the adults, which she often uses as an advantage when she wants to manipulate either party. She is usually very mean to the babies. Susie Carmichael, who lives across the street from the Pickles, is also able to communicate on the same level as Angelica, though she is not manipulative. As a result of this, as well as being favored by the babies, she often clashes with Angelica.[7]


According to an interview with Danny Antonucci (a special feature on the Season 1 DVD set), the characters were based on real people in his life. The personalities of Ed, Edd, and Eddy are based on personal traits of himself, and the activities of his two sons. The Eds also held personality traits of The Three Stooges, who were a comedy trio whose various characters they portrayed in each short subject film often try to create money-making schemes, but their plans end up backfiring near the end of their films. The cul-de-sac kids were based on kids he grew up with. Antonucci also stated that he believed it was important to add Plank to the show, stating that he "thought it would be really cool to do the show with Plank taking on a character of his own" and to cause Jonny to do things he would usually never do.[8] He also stated that Rolf is strongly based on himself and his cousins, since he was part of an immigrant family, and grew up in a first generation foreign household with different customs and ways of living, compared to those born in Canada.[3] In a Cartoon Network podcast interview, Antonucci hinted at the Kanker sisters being based on someone from his personal life, as well. After The Rugrats Movie (1998), in which Tommy's baby brother Dylan "Dil" Pickles is born, he was soon added as a character on the show. As a 1 year old baby, Dil i
