Ed, Edd n Eddy is the longest running original animated series produced by Cartoon Network. The series was originally rated TV-G, but the rating was later changed to TV-Y7.
The show itself is based on three pre-adolescent boys known as the Eds (whose names are Ed, Edd and Eddy), who hang around their fictional suburban neighborhood of Peach Creek, coming up with scams to con their peers for cash, so they can buy themselves a handful of their favorite treat, jawbreakers. Their plans normally fail though, leaving them in predicaments and situations that always go haywire. The characters almost never leave the neighborhood and adults are never seen, with the possible exception of Eddy's Brother in Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show.
The series was first aired January 4, 1999 on Cartoon Network after being delayed from December 1998, and continues to do so. Originally, there were to only be four seasons; Cartoon Network, however, had ordered two more seasons of Ed, Edd n Eddy, bringing the series' length to six seasons. The sixth season, however, was cut short as it included a 90 minute TV movie, Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show. There were also three holiday specials for Halloween, Christmas, Valentine's Day, and a special extraterrestrial oriented episode for Cartoon Network's mini-series "Cartoon Network Invaded."
With the premier of the movie on November 8, 2009 in the United States, the long-running series officially ended.
