Wall Bangers: Ed, Edd n Eddy

IMPORTANT NOTE: It's not a wall banger because the Eds (or your favorite character) got beat up. Please only put if the punishment was disproportionate or for a rather low reason.

  • A crown example is "If It Smells Like an Ed." All fans should be aware of the episode...ALL. After Eddy (and Eddy ONLY) gave Jimmy a wedgie, everyone else laughs at him. To get revenge, Jimmy then targets all three Eds by framing them for stealing several neighborhood items. Unfortunately, the Eds are unable to clear their name and have to choose between getting beaten up by the other kids or getting attacked by the Kanker Sisters. They choose option A as the lesser of two evils, but end up getting both options because Jimmy DIDN'T THINK THEY SUFFERED ENOUGH.
    • Another thing in this episode: when the paintbrush disappears, Sarah immediately assumes Ed took it despite lack of proof, and everyone else just goes with her.
    • A few scenes after this, when the Eds are spotted with a tied-up and ju-jubed Jonny, the kids walk by and immediately assume that the Eds did that to Jonny. Ever worse, when Eddy says that Jonny was the way he was when he and the other two Eds found him, Kevin justifies his biased views by saying "yeah right, we saw you dorks with our own eyes!" That makes no sense, whatsoever! What. the. fuck.
    • What's worse is that this is a mystery-themed episode. Usually, when the culprit is exposed, he or she is supposed to be punished while the innocent people are rewarded. While Eddy deserved what he got for provoking Jimmy, Ed and Edd have to suffer the consequences. Its no surprise that this episode is very controversial.
  • The episode "To Sir With Ed" has Nazz treating Eddy like a baby and sending him to bed for something he didn't even do. Nazz then has a party at Eddy's house without inviting him or asking permission from his parents...and she's supposed to be babysitting him.
    • Nazz appears to be about the same age as Eddy, maybe a few months older. Getting a babysitter that's the same age as the person who she's watching is missing the point of babysitters. Early Installment Weirdness, but it's a pity.
      • Babysitting someone who is the same age is unusual, but not unheard of. However, this usually involves someone who either physically or mentally is unable to care for themselves. Eddy? He's shown to be able to care for himself (It's implied that he even knows how to cook omelets at least if he gets hungry). Not exactly someone that needs a babysitter. It makes one wonder why Nazz didn't just say "Hey, your parents told me to check up on you now and again to make sure you're ok" rather than make him go through all that humiliation.
  • "A Town Called Ed." Say what you may want to about the Eds; but in this story, they only wanted to watch a monster truck marathon with the others. They try to point out that they own Peach Creek and so should be allowed to join them, but they get brushed off. It doesn't help that it turns out that the missing last page reveals that Eddy's ancestor bet it and lost to Lord Kanker.
  • "Stop, Look, Ed": After deciding that rules are for fools, Eddy attempts to persuade everyone to break any rule whatsoever in order to have a good time. Naturally, Edd still wants to obey the rules. Near the end of the episode, Edd calls everyone's parents. After panicking, the kids imprison all 3 Eds in a net. Anyone else see what's wrong with that last sentence? That's right: Edd acted alone — he ADMITS it — but ALL the Eds are punished! How is that fair? It's almost as bad as "If It Smells Like an Ed" (ALMOST).
    • Eddy seemed to have taken a hit from the Idiot Ball at the last minute. Out of either panic or loyalty he tried to defend Edd by saying he "broke a rule, like us." Still doesn't change the fact that Ed got caged with them even though he was pretty much oblivious to Edd's treachery until after Edd announced it.
  • "Postcards from the Ed": In that one, both Ed AND Edd are punished for Eddy's (and Eddy's alone) scam killing Plank's parents. In fact, both of the former tried to stop the latter. However, once Johnny 2x4 has discovered the accidental "murder", ALL THREE are literally up a tree, surrounded by mugsters Plank knows. While Eddy (as usual) deserved it, and Ed being punished could be justified as "betraying" Johnny's trust, EDD did absolutely NOTHING to deserve this retribution. He even tried to STOP him, as said before. But of course, like said before, he receives an unjustified punishing.
  • The Halloween episode. Ed went around kicking the kids' asses because he saw one too many horror movies; Edd and Eddy STILL GET HURT BY IT. Eddy didn't even have a scam that episode; he just wanted to go to Spook-E-Ville. Double D did nothing wrong, as usual. And worst of all they didn't attack Ed whom was responsible for their injuries in the first place.
  • The fact that Kevin and Sarah always get away with their unprovoked actions towards the Eds.
  • In "Tinker Ed", we see Kevin telling Jimmy that fairy tales don't exist. The Eds try to help him but end up bringing him to a state of depression. So Sarah threatens them to fix their mistake, so they do, only to end up being humiliated in a scheme devised by the two brats and Kevin. Granted, the Eds did make Jimmy's problem worse, but it was Kevin who started this whole mess, so shouldn't he have been punished too? It just feels unsettling to me how they let Kevin do whatever he wants while the Eds Can't Get Away with Nuthin' . And to make it worse, the Eds actually felt sympathy towards Jimmy and really did want to help, whereas Kevin was just being a prick.
    • Not that it makes this episode any better, but it could be that Jimmy and Kevin (and maybe Sarah) came up with this whole thing just to torture the Eds.
  • "The Good, The Bad and the Ed". The whole episode involved Eddy and Rolf getting themselves maimed over the highly-coveted "Hairy Chest of Resilience" badge, while we are treated to the agony of the former character. Its biggest Wall Banger moment, though, would have to be the ending. Both end up almost equally injured (Eddy slightly more due to losing all his teeth), but only Rolf gets the badge because Eddy fainted one lousy second before him. Literally adding insult to injury, Eddy gets a "Crybaby Boo-Hoo" badge despite surviving all the pain he went through AND being the first person in 50 years to try and claim the former badge!
  • "Ed, Edd, 'n' Eddy's Christmas Special" should be considered an Anti Christmas Special. At first, it's pretty heartfelt when Eddy seemingly learns the true meaning of Christmas, but when Santa leaves a big bag of presents for everyone, Eddy swipes it and Ed and Edd pursue him, and the resulting struggle, the Eds lose the presents. Then, to make matters worse, the Kankers show up. Even in a Christmas Special, the Eds can't catch a break.
    • It's especially worse that Ed and Edd ran off to get the presents back from Eddy, and they get attacked by the Kankers. While the Kids sing carols a mere hill away. Ed and Edd tried to help them, but since they're Eds, screw them.
  • "Look Before You Ed." Jimmy is terrified of dangers winter brings, so he and Edd make a safety club to protect kids from these dangers. As usual, Ed and Eddy start causing problems, and Edd is too meek to stop them. Jimmy gets pissed off at this, and locks them all in a cage with icicle bars. Disproportionate Retribution meets Broken Aesop, anyone?
  • "See No Ed." It appears the Eds have disappeared, so the Kids celebrate. Except Kevin, who's getting paranoid that they're up to something big. Then the Kids stumble upon Chimp World-a monkey-themed amusement park made by the Eds. All the Kids start playing on it except Kevin, who knows it's a scam. Then Chimp World's shoddy construction causes all the Kids to get into dangerous situations, and only Kevin can save them. What does he do? He flips out and runs away screaming out fear of the Eds. Why is this a Wall Banger? Every episode with Kevin revolves around him beating up the Eds without a problem. Suddenly now he sees them as a threat? This episode turns Kevin from a Jerk Jock to a Wangsting loser. I would find that funny, except he leaves the Kids to their fate because he can't handle it. Ass.
  • It's mild compared to the other Wall Bangers on this page owing in part to how fleeting it is, but the beginning of "Dim Lit Ed" has one. After Edd warns Jimmy about the dangers of somersaulting, he then tells Jimmy about the sheer amount of bugs residing in the grass and how he could have squished a ladybug that Edd was marveling at, much to Jimmy's horror. As Jimmy runs away in fear of the bugs, Edd remarks to himself that "Jimmy's lack of good judgment is quite apparent", essentially calling Jimmy stupid.note  The Wall Banger here?
    • 1. A fear of bugs is a common fear, and Jimmy is a very fearful person anyways. Sure, Jimmy may be overly timid at points, but questioning his intelligence seems rather harsh on Edd's part.
    • 2. It's also hypocritical when one considers that Double D can be a Nervous Wreck himself, and said just seconds earlier that something as mild as somersaulting is a "wild and disreputable sport". (However, it could be that Edd accused Jimmy of lacking common sense due to him apparently having no clue whatsoever that the grass around him is the natural habitat of many bugs)
  • Another mild Wallbanger is "Button Yer Ed". Yes, it's amusing how gravely far Ed, Double D, and Rolf misinterpret any and all of Eddy's attempts at communication since losing his voice, but the one moment when they seem to actually correctly understand what he's trying to say still goes wrong. Eddy gestures he wants a piece of paper to write notes on; Rolf understands this and hands Eddy a piece of paper. That's all well and good, but Eddy needs something to write with, and gestures that he wants a pen/pencil/whatever... what does Rolf give him? An ear of corn. Even in-universe, if Eddy could scream at that point, he would, but he instead kicks the fence (and hurts his foot).
  • A pretty big Wall Banger is "Boom Boom Out Goes the Ed". The light goes out on the Cul-de-Sac and Ed tries to convince everyone it's because of "mutant moles", and it remains like that for the entire episode. It's not funny, seriously. To make it worse, for the first time ever, Eddy gets away with the money and no comeuppance... Until Ed grabs the jar and throws it onto the sewer, then forces Eddy to get locked in his room instead of searching for the money he just threw away. This episode is depressing, and it's even more when you consideer it's the second one that just focuses on Ed being an unlikeable idiot with Idiot Houdini all around, the first one being the Halloween special.
