** Danny Antonucci wanted the series to remain animated in a fashion to 1940-70's cartoons, but by the time the fifth season came into production, Cartoon Network forced the crew to animate the series from that point digitally.

* IKnewIt: Some fans accurately guessed[[spoiler: that Eddy's Brother would appear in the movie and be the antagonist]].

* IKnewIt: Some fans accurately guessed[[spoiler: guessed [[spoiler: that Eddy's Brother would appear in the movie and be the antagonist]].



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[http://comments.deviantart.com/1/66770313/2446959492 A comment]] by one of the show's storyboarders says there was an unused campfire scene in TheMovie that would have divulged on the characters' HiddenDepths.
** An episode called "Special Ed" was slated to air, but was scrapped for being "too real." No one knows what Antonucci means by that, but that won't stop fans from guessing. Rumors state it was going to be ADayInTheLimelight for Ed. [[note]]Although "special ed" is short for "special education" which is, not exclusive to, but most commonly associated with kids who suffer mental retardation. For those curious, those with with focus or emotional issues -- such as attention deficit disorder or Aspergers' syndrome -- can also end up in special education.[[/note]]
** There are three four other unmade episodes that are known: 'A Room and a Ed' in which Sarah and Jimmy evict Ed out while Ed and Sarah's parents are away so Sarah can have the house to herself, causing Eddy to swing into action, completely fed up with Sarah's brattiness. 'Luck be an Ed Tonight' in which Ed's horoscope tells him he'll have a lucky day, which leads Eddy to milk it for all it's worth. 'The Amazing Ed' a talent show episode, little is known beyond that. And an unnamed episode in which Eddy attempts to start his own religion, canned by Cartoon Network because they knew it would have sparked a huge controversy.
*** It's hard to believe, but this show was originally pitched to Nickelodeon as a Nicktoon. While Nickelodeon has a lot of [[GettingCrapPastTheRadar radar-dodging]] shows, they don't go as far with it as Cartoon Network does (possibly because they don't want another ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow'' on their hands). Even when pitching it, Antonucci knew that if Nickelodeon accepted the show, a lot would have to be changed for content and was proven right when their first demand was [[ExecutiveMeddling complete creative control]].

The episode was however before season 5 so it's unknown if the "it's about Ed being in special education" concept is accurate or if they just used a PunnyName for the title.[[/note]]

* WordOfGod: Danny Antonucci claims that the show was created on a dare from one of his colleagues. He apparently bet Antonucci, who at that point was known for [[DerangedAnimation vulgar, off-the-wall]] TV commercials, station I. D.s and cartoons geared towards adults, that he couldn't make a show for children (this being after years of Danny [[AnimationAgeGhetto trying and failing to pitch cartoons for adults]]). It's safe to assume that Danny won.

* NoExportForYou: Surprisingly, this Canadian series ''didn't air in Canada'' during it's production and the creators had no idea what the final product looked like until long after it'd aired in America.

* ThrowItIn: Averted. According to Matt Hill (Ed's voice actor), Antonucci was ''very'' strict on not having the actors ad-libbing any lines during recording. Ed's random comments? All in the original script.

* WriteWhoYouKnow: All the characters are based on either facets of creator Danny Antonucci's personality, family members, or people he knew growing up. The Eds were all aspects of his personality[[note]]''Ed''ward being his middle name[[/note]], Jimmy was based on a cousin, Jonny was based on a loner friend who spent time with a blanket, Rolf was based on his experiences as an immigrant, and the Kankers were based on a group of girls who harassed him in 7th grade. He ''probably'' (hopefully) didn't know anyone exactly like Eddy's Brother.
