* Even though all three of the Eds are HeterosexualLifePartners and TrueCompanions, many times it's shown and implied that Ed and Double D are closer to each other than either of them is with Eddy. Neither of them has a brother (while Eddy does have one, he's a [[spoiler: [[VileVillainSaccharineShow bastard)]], so that alone make them more so gravitate towards another. Plus several episodes show how protective they are of one another: "Key to My Ed", when all three of them are trying to evade the Kankers, while Eddy squeezes underneath the fence, Ed lifts up the fence for Edd (who thanks him as he runs underneath), "To Sir, With Ed" has the two of them hanging out at Edd's house without Eddy and Ed at one point clings to his leg (to his chagrin), "Don't Rain on my Ed" when Eddy sacrifices Double D [[ItMakesSenseInContext to a chicken stampede to get the jawbreakers]], Ed later meets up with him with the latter safely tucked into his jacket and which prompts him to call Ed out for being a true friend (and call Eddy out for the opposite). Other minor examples inure "Fa La La La Ed" when after Edd is exposed for helping with Eddy's scam and breaks down in humiliation, Ed consoles him and tells him "It's okay; Santa forgives" and in "O Ed Eleven", when giving a monetary bribe to the Kankers to let them escape, he only has enough to let himself and ''Ed'' escape (even as he bemoans over not having enough, Ed then tells him that he did the right thing) and in " Momma's Little Ed" after Double D is duped into doing fake chores and leaves in disgust due to not trusting either his parents or his friends, Ed actually cries over this and urges Eddy to bring him to his home in the meantime.

** It may seem uncharacteristically naïve of Double D to believe that the Ed's sticky notes in "Momma's Little Ed" were genuinely from his parents. However, it could be seen as a reflection of how strong that his commitment towards obeying his parents orders is; his obedience is so great that he barely even gives a second thought about how plausible that it could have been that his parents wrote them.

** This is a contributing factor as to why Eddy took Jimmy under his wing in "Ed in a Halfshell." He also had no problem with Jimmy surpassing him in scamming and being a ManipulativeMastard. Even after getting beaten to a pulp by Sarah, all Eddy can do is [[SoProudOfYou gush about how proud he is of Jimmy]].

Added DiffLines:

* Why does Eddy hate Jimmy and constantly pick on him? It’s because Jimmy reminds Eddy of how the latter used to be like with [[spoiler:his brother]]. To Eddy, Jimmy is a constant reminder of why Eddy has low self-esteem in the first place. In Eddy’s point of view, Jimmy comes off as weak, wimpy, a sissy, a crybaby, and a doormat. In the movie, Eddy is shown to [[spoiler:possess these qualities himself when he is shown getting beaten by his brother]].

** It should be noted that Edd and Double D are willingly going along with Eddy's plans knowing full well the potential consequences, so they aren't 100% innocent.

* Many fans tend to complain about some traits that Sarah and Jimmy have that are considered annoying. The thing is, Sarah and Jimmy are the youngest kids in the neighborhood, and younger children usually have traits that older people consider grating (crying, tattling, being mischievous, being [[BitchInSheepsClothing being manipulative towards older children and adults]], meddling, etc). So the duo coming off as annoying to the fans due to them having those traits make sense, given their ages. It also makes sense that Sarah gets away with her bratty behavior, due to parents usually allowing their younger children to get away with things (whether they are aware of their personalities or not).

Added DiffLines:

* Why are Sarah and Jimmy better scammers than Eddy? This is because the duo's scams focus more on customer satisfication, rather than swindling the kids out of their money. Eddy's scams are less successful than the duo's because he allows his greed to get the better of him, and his scams usually come off as fraudulent. In a few episodes, such as the infamous Your Ed Here, Eddy's scams are successful due to them looking just as interesting as Sarah and Jimmy's while focusing on customer satisfication.

** [[spoiler:Going to him for help truly was Eddy's last resort since he already knew it wouldn't work. ''Scamming himself'' into believing there was hope, or deep down truly believing his brother might help.]]

* Just a theory, but it would appear that Ed (yes, "dumb Ed") is [[SmarterThanYouLook actually a LOT smarter than he lets on]]. Think about it, he shows some of the signs; he often shows that he's capable of doing intelligent tasks such as winning a spelling bee, and he could be just [[ObfuscatingStupidity acting dumb]], just like how some intelligent kids act. Another sign of his possible intelligence is his hygiene and messy antics, which is often a sign of the eccentric genius, as they tend to prioritize other tasks besides time-consuming cleaning. And to further hammer in the nail, in "Hand Me Down Ed", the boomerang transforms kids possibly into their own subconsious images. In Ed's case? An educated kid that's working on a thesis paper, and is capable of spouting out a wide vocabulary, which impresses even Edd.

It also helps that in the episode "Mission Ed-Possible,'' it was revealed that despite Ed's horrendous report card, he earned an '''[[HiddenDepths A]]''' in History.
