Adl, Adil n Adiy is the Ed, Edd n Eddy cast in an Arabic setting; more specifically, it plays off in one of the more poor Arabic areas/countries. It was the first submission to the Ed, Edd n Eddy culture series.
The series is about three below-average boys from the simple town of "Nrh Khwkh" (Peach Creek), named Adl, Adil and Adiy, who try to become rich and reach the top class by scamming their fellow villagers.
Because most villagers don't have much to spend, the wealthy Kazim and American Rick are often their target.

The Arabic Ed. He is 14 years old.
Adl likes to play fight, but always gives his own spin to it by turning his "opponents" or himself into monsters. Adil and Adiy sometimes entertain their simple friend by playing along, but as Adl tends to get out of control, they'd rather leave him with the bundles of hay he usually battles with.
He wears a robe made from a green potatoe bag and under it a familiar sleeveless striped shirt. He has short, brown curly hair and brown eyes.
The Arabic Edd.
He is nicknamed "Addanai" (Add an I) by his surroundings in order to distinguish him from his friend, Adl. His full name is "Abdul Adil" and his second name is "Mariam" opposed to Edd's confirmed "Marian". He is 13 years old.
Adil and his family are very intelligent, despite the lack of education given in his hometown. But while he is a genius in his own right, his friends consider it a useless talent and are more impressed by physical strength and the practice of salestalk; something Adil isn't particularly good in. Even so, his ability to create contraptions out of trash is welcomed by them.
While Adil is extremely kind and not too fond of scamming his unfortunate neighbours, his craving for a better life made him decide to join Adiy anyway.
Adil is dressed similar to desert people and doesn't show much of his body; he wears a faded black head scarf, red robe, purple belt and cyan sandals.
The artist's theory about what is under Edd's hat has also been applied to this version, though it's altered, and here he has long hair and a reddish birthmark on his forehead, which gives Adil an obvious female appearance and is considered the problem. His eyes are green.
The Arabic Eddy.
His second name is "Slokeh", opposed to Eddy's confirmed "Skipper". The name comes close to the word "shlokeh", which is an Arabic swear word for a prostitute. He is 12 years old.
Different from Eddy who craves for money and jawbreakers, Adiy mainly wishes wealth and wants to leave his town for a better life elsewhere. He is always talking about moving to Abu Dhabi. Though his dreams are shared by multiple residents of Nrh Khwkh, he is the most active in fulfilling it, but his path to getting there is far from honest.
Because his two more genuine friends, Adl and Adil, also wish to have a more fruitful future, they knowingly join their friend in scamming the other children out of the few pennies they have.
Adiy has three black curly hairs, light brown eyes, wears a yellow robe, a red-purple scarf, red sandals, and has a white piece of rope tied to his middle which resembles Eddy's pants chain.
The Arabic Kevin. He is 13 years old.
Kazim comes from the richest family in the neighbourhood and doesn't hide that fact from the lesser fortunate he shares the town with. Instead of a bike, he rides around on his pet dromedary, with which he often tramples the Ads with. He calls them "peasants" opposed to Kevin's "dorks".
The reason for Kazim's wealth in Adl, Adil n Adiy is abstractly connected to Kevin's jawbreaker garage and his popularity because of it.
Kazim considers Rick his best friend, even though he mainly wants him around because of everyone's fascination for his Western objects. As he is the only other resident that isn't living in poverty, Kazim is very tolerant of him and his more entitled side. As Rick is the only person he wants to be seen with in public, it insinuates that Kazim looks down on everyone who is poor and doesn't care about personality, but at the same time, he is in love with Nazli. Because of their different backgrounds, though, Kazim advertises it less; and Kevin's blindness for Nazz' flirting in The Big Picture Show is here translated to have happened because of Kazim's reluctance to date a bottom class girl.
Kazim wears an expensive, short green robe, a red and black head scarf, white pants and black pointy shoes. He has dark-brown, curly hair and brown eyes.
The Arabic Nazz. She is 13 years old.
She is the love interest of the town, but personally feels attracted to the rude Kazim. While he makes it clear he doesn't like anyone who doesn't have much coin in their wallet, she is the only poor resident he's fairly nice to. While he's still condescending at times, Nazli appreciated his bursts of kindness towards her and their past made her grow fond of him;
Opposed to Nazz having been fat in the past, Nazli was nearly dying of starvation, and Kazim offered her and her family food in their dire times. This occurence established their feelings for each other, but Nazli doesn't always receive the response she wants from him when she tries to approach him, which sometimes confuses her.
Nazli has long brown hair, light brown eyes, and wears a black dress with a white top, a purple scarf around her waist and black sandals. Instead of being a cheerleader and working out most of the time, she practices belly dancing. The costume she wears for it was a gift from Kazim.
The American Rolf. He is 14 years old.
Because of his modern appearance, Rick stands out and is Kazim's favourite. Even so, he gets just as well accepted by the others and they treat him as a regular member of the crowd. He often shows off devices the others have never seen before, even though these devices tend to be outdated in current time, like a Game Boy.
He is very self-important and doesn't really want to talk about anyone or anything but himself.
Rick owns a pitbull named "William", resembling Rolf's pig, Wilfred.
He has blond hair, blue eyes, wears a white shirt that says "I <3 NY", blue pants and red sneakers.
The Arabic Jimmy. He is 8 years old.
Jimel's weak personality and girly attitude doesn't get appreciated much by the other characters, as their culture finds it strange for a boy to behave like he does. While there is a sly and aggressive character hiding inside of him, in general Jimel is harmless and reluctant to be of any real help. Especially the boys don't like to have the whiny Jimel around, and the small boy is usually pushed aside before he can say his opinion.
His best and only friend is Sabah, as they both are the only ones who tolerate each other.
He wears a faded blue robe, white poofy pants and black sandals. His hair is a light shade of brown and he has yellowish-brown eyes. Jimel has horrible teeth because his parents could never afford the care he needs to fix them.
The Arabic Sarah. She is 8 years old.
She is best friends with the feminine Jamil and the only person who doesn't judge him for who he is, as is proven by the fact the two of them meet up every day. She is very loud-spoken and has quite some strength for an 8 year old, which she uses on the people who make fun of Jamil.
She has a crush on Adil ever since he had given her a rare flower he found in the barren ground, of which Adl and Adiy didn't care for the backstory, which is why he gave it away in the first place.
She has long, dark brown wavy hair, green eyes, wears a pink dress with a blue scarf around her middle, red sandals and has big silver earrings.
Joygun and Stick
The Arabic Jonny and Plank. He is 12 years old.
Joygun is the village idiot and hardly gets respect from the others. While Plank is considered to be an actual character with some kind of personality; Stick is mainly being used by the disturbed Joygun to poke others and to have random conversations with. Stick doesn't "talk back" or has a face.
Joygun doesn't wear much, except for diaper-like pants. He has short, brown curly hair and brown eyes.
The Arabic Lee.
While fairly well-dressed, the Kanaan sisters are by far the least wealthy residents of Nrh Khwkh. They live in the tiny ruins of what was once a building of some sort, but despite their position, they know how to take care of themselves and never go through the day hungry. Leena is 14 years old.
Impressed by Adiy's motivation to get rich, Leena strives to become his girlfriend and become part of his possible future success.
Leena has long, dark brown curly hair, black eyes, big silver earrings, wears a long blue dress with a little white top over it, a pink scarf tied around her middle and has her feet wrapped in purple cloth. She has a beauty mark on her left cheek.
The Arabic Marie.
While fairly well-dressed, the Kanaan sisters are by far the least wealthy residents of Nrh Khwkh. They live in the tiny ruins of what was once a building of some sort, but despite their position, they know how to take care of themselves and never go through the day hungry. Marib is 13 years old.
Marib likes Adil the most because of his unusual kind personality. Her tendency to be dominant over others is a match with his docile nature.
Marib has black half-curled hair that's short at the front and long at the back, black eyes, wears a black top, a long green skirt, a pink scarf tied around her middle, her feet wrapped in black cloth, a silver bracelet on her left wrist and has yellow eyeshadow. She has a beauty mark on her left cheek.
The Arabic May.
While fairly well-dressed, the Kanaan sisters are by far the least wealthy residents of Nrh Khwkh. They live in the tiny ruins of what was once a building of some sort, but despite their position, they know how to take care of themselves and never go through the day hungry. Maya is 12 years old.
Being a fairly simple girl with simple dreams for the future, she likes a boyfriend who is able to care for her, and finds that boyfriend in the equally simple Adl.
Maya has long brown hair and black eyes. She wears a old grey scarf that covers her upper body, a short red skirt, a pink scarf tied around her middle and her feet are wrapped in yellow and red cloth. She has a beauty mark on her left cheek.
The Arabic Eddy's brother.
His name is Tereik, opposed to Eddy's brother's unofficial Terry. He is 20 years old.
Tereik is a skilled thief; and never paid for anything in his life. As he was rather abusive towards his little brother and tried to get him into the same business, he got kicked out by his parents. But that never held him back and he's still stealing.
He wears a short yellow robe, a patched-up red jacket, grey poofy pants, a white piece of rope tied to his middle, grey sandals, a cyan scarf with the price tag of "62 dinar" still attached to it and a small brown head scarf. He has three black curly hairs, light-brown eyes, a bit of a beard and black circles around his eyes.
- The Eds were previously called "'Ad, 'Ahd n 'Adli" and "Adi, Adib n Addar", but their current names are still uncertain;
- All the character's names, with exception of "Rick", "Stick" and possibly "Joygun", are Arabic names, but need confirmation.
- Adil's spot on his forehead is a typical Indian (female) feature.
