Trivia / Eddsworld

  • Actor Allusion:
    • In the theme song, Tom is briefly shown wearing a shirt with an asdfmovie character. In the Halloween Special, he reads a magazine called Ska. His VA uses TomSka as YouTube and Twitter nickname.
    • The director of the movie in "Spares" is called Christopher Bingbong (as seen during the movie's end credits). He was voiced by Chris "Bing" Bingham.
  • Author Existence Failure: Edd passed away from cancer in March 25, 2012. He left behind the first part of a two-part Eddsworld episode ("Space Face") and possibly a lot of other ideas that will never be seen, including Space Face's original ending.
  • Creator Backlash:
    • A minor one, but TomSka didn't like the way Tord was written off, saying it raised more questions than answers.
    • Tom himself also isn't a fan of when he was put as showrunner, feeling he ended up nearly putting Eddsworld on the ground.
  • Mean Character, Nice Actor: Tom and Matt are shown to be a bit of Jerkasses in the show, Tom shown to be very snarky and Matt being very vain. In real life, Tom and Matt are nothing like that and are known to be pleasant, if friendly people.
  • The Other Darrin: In "The End", Tord was voiced by Jamie Spicer-Lewis, as opposed to his RL inspiration, Tord Larrson. According to the real-life Tom, getting in contact with Tord (who left the show eight years before) to do voice acting would be near-impossible.
  • Outlived Its Creator: After Edd's death, the series continued with Paul ter Voorde as the lead animator and Tim Hautekiet as Edd's new VA.
  • Promoted Fanboy: SuperSmash3DS, real name Mark Lovallo, was the artist and occasional writer of a fan comic based on the show called Eddsworld Guest Comics. Come 2013, he's writing and directing the Eddsworld Movie. He got another case of this in 2016, where he and Billy Crinion, a friend of his, were revealed to be working on "The End".
  • Talking to Himself:
    • Edd, Tom, Matt and their future counterparts in WTFuture.
    • Edd and Larry in Spares.
    • Tom's Tales are fully voiced by Tom Ridgewell.
  • Uncancelled: Eddsworld was at least planned to be closed with the episode "The End", however Edd Gould's mother has confirmed through her twitter she has plans to actually be the next show runner, therefore revoking the plans for the series to end.
