* The ShoutOut section on the main page mentioned a particular WizardOfOz reference in the movie that compared Ed to the Scarecrow (looking for a brain), Edd to the Cowardly Lion (looking for courage), and Eddy to the Tin Man (looking for a heart). It seems like a one shot gag at first, but our trio ends up finding exactly what their [=WoO=] counterparts were looking for later at the climax. Check it: when he sees Eddy being beaten mercilessly, Double-D is the one brave enough to call [[spoiler: Eddy's Brother]] out on it, and his ''courage'' is what first captures the neighborhood kid's sympathy. Then Ed, of all people, uses his ''brain'' to figure out how to use momentum to end up stopping the BigBad for good. And most importantly, Eddy ends up having an emotional breakdown in front of everyone, and his ''heart'' is what finally makes the neighborhood kids [[spoiler: fully accept the Eds as friends.]] If even one of them hadn't played their part, the Eds would have never [[EarnYourHappyEnding earned their happy ending.]]

* Just a theory, but it would appear that Ed (yes, "dumb Ed")is 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 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.

* An article mentions that Ed's dad has tried to teach him to be a car mechanic. In "Ed, Ed and Away", Eddy implies that his father is a used car salesman. This could explain a number of things: Eddy likely inherited his "talent" for con artistry from his father (used car salesmen are typically depicted as silver-tongued con artists in media), and Ed's dad likely works at said dealership, which could explain how Ed and Eddy met each other.

* There were plenty of complaints that Edds transition into a slight bit of an InsufferableGenius in the newer seasons. This makes a bit of sense when you think about it though, since the older seasons take place during the summer break with only shenanigans to occupy him and his friends. Now that they're in school in the new seasons, he's both in his prime and the perfect place to express those smarts of his.

* When Eddy's Brother hears his younger sibling at the door, the first thing he asks is "Mom and Dad know you're here?" and "''Anyone'' know you're here?" Why did he ask if anyone knew that Eddy was in the park? Perhaps he wanted to make sure that the coast was clear so that he could [[spoiler:seize the opportunity to give his little brother a merciless beating in private]].

* It's been stated that Edd is the only member of the main cast to have not grown up in Peach Creek, moving there at some point before the show but after [[spoiler: Eddy's brother]] moved out. Now imagine that he never moved to the neighborhood and events proceeded as in canon just with him missing completely. It's entirely possible that Eddy would have driven the rest of the kids into murdering him and Ed since they didn't have a OnlySaneMan to curb their worst impulses.

* During ''A Fistful of Ed'' when Double D has the kids cornered after his accidental rampage, Double D tries to get Sarah of all people in the crowd to believe that he's harmless. This could be an excuse to [[BigBrotherInstinct have Ed appear and show his mistrust of Double D]], but there can be some brilliance in that he's trying to get to Sarah as she's usually one of the first kids to see right through the Eds shenanigans and the one to debunk them, most of the time. Maybe Double D knows this and thought that she could vouch for his harmlessness.

* The other kids' treatment of the Eds has a darker light from "See No Ed". It is implied they have been slowly and gradually embittered by the Eds' harassment for years. Kevin is bordering on losing his sanity from paranoia of the Eds' scams, while Jimmy remorsefully admits he constantly wishes they'd go away just out of desperation that they leave him alone. By the time of TheMovie, this scarring has gone on to the point the kids are [[SuperPersistentPredator obsessively hell bent on brutalising the Eds]]. Imagine this feuding going on into their teens or even adulthood. Given how much HeWhoFightsMonsters had already set into Kevin especially, one has to wonder how long it would be before he or another became intent on ''murdering'' the Eds if they hadn't cleaned their act.

* The way Ed is treated by his family in the series becomes a lot harder to watch when you realize [[http://www.roanoke.com/life/health/the-people-s-pharmacy-society-s-mistreatment-of-mentally-ill/article_c97feaba-821d-11e3-9c44-0019bb30f31a.html how badly mentally disabled]] [[https://news.ncsu.edu/2014/02/wms-desmarais-violence2014 people have]] [[http://www.salon.com/2015/06/18/its_not_about_mental_illness_the_big_lie_that_always_follows_mass_shootings_by_white_males/?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=socialflow been treated]]. A very sad case of TruthInTelevision, indeed.
