Added DiffLines:

* Where was "Angry Ed" when Sarah kept kicking him out of his own house? He could have easily scared Sarah away like in "Little Ed Blue" and secured his own room and TV to himself.
** Well, if Ed had a pebble in his shoe, then maybe he would appear.


* Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the episode "Dawn of the Eds", but why didn't Ed just wait for Robot Rebel Ranch to come out on VHS, rather then going through all that trouble that got them stuck in a junkyard?

*** To be fair on Eddy's parents, while they seem kind of strict when Eddy misbehaves, it seems to me they probably didn't know how bad the situation with his brother was - the ''very first'' thing Eddy's Brother does when they meet in the movie is ask whether Eddy's parents know he's there, which implies that he was careful about bullying Eddy too much around them, aside from "ordinary" SiblingRivalry. Given Bro is hinted to be a far more successful con artist than Eddy ever was, it's likely he was manipulating his parents as much as his little brother. After all, they made for easy targets to practise on.

Added DiffLines:

*From the episode "Avast Ye Eds", does Edd really think scurvy is going to an issue on a trip that will last less than a day? If he doesn't, why even bring this up?

Added DiffLines:

* Edd runs with an upright posture and with his arms out and hooked inward. One would assume this is because the science-minded kid wants to lower his wind resistance. But wouldn't this actually maximize his wind resistance? It always bugged me.



to:

** He's too much of a pushover to stand up to Eddy. And if he tried staying away from Eddy, the latter would still force him to participate in his scams to make money such as "Scrambled Ed" and "Thick as an Ed".



to:

** Because July reaches higher record temperatures than June does.
** Many school years end on June (at least early June), and if Eddy pushed the lie back too early then the kids might have gotten suspicious.

Added DiffLines:

** He wasn't on the bus from the community pool center back to school. The bus is where the bet commenced.

Added DiffLines:

* Why didn't Jimmy participate in the bet in "All Eds Are Off"?



to:

** Even if they were willing to wait for the movie to come out on VHS, video stores are not allowed to sell/rent out R-rated movies to minors unless their parents were with them.



to:

*** Considering how Edd and Eddy reacted to the missing stairs. It's worth noting that Ed's parents removing the stairs was unorthodox even by this universe's standards.


* Speaking of "The Eds are Coming", I have to ask: Why did they immediately jump to using Nazz as the sacrifice? I mean, I get why they couldn't use Johnny, Kevin, Jimmy, or one of the Edds...but why couldn't they use Sarah instead? I'm pretty sure the only one who would miss Sarah would be Jimmy, as opposed to the 5 people[[note]]Johnny, Kevin, and the Eds[[/note]] who would miss Nazz?

* "Once Bitten, Twice Ed". Just all of it. First, Johnny 2x4 being an extreme bleeding heart twice in a row. Him not wanting what he thought to be a woodland creature to get hurt? I can understand. But not wanting what he thought to be a mutant creature to get hurt because "mutants have feelings, too!"? Not so much. Second, in the case of the latter, he was the one that got so excited about the idea of saving the world from mutants that he invited everyone along. Now all of a sudden he wants to protect the mutants? Third, why did Eddy even bother trying to invite Johnny again when he was the one that screwed up the scam the first time? He would've just gotten in the way again, which he did. Fourth, why was everyone blaming the Eds for trying to make them hurt the "raccoon" and the "mutant" when they were the ones supplying the kids with completely harmless marshmallows to use as ammunition? If anything, they should be calling out Rolf and Kevin for switching the marshmallow ammunition with potentially harmful objects.

*** "Stupid kids who think violence is the solution to everything" doesn't explain why Johnny pulls a complete 180 with the mutants, or why the Kids blame the Eds when Rolf and Kevin were the ones that ''really'' messed things up by replacing the marshmallows with harmful objects. They're not exactly the smartest group of children in fiction, but they're not ''that'' stupid.

to:

** I'm guessing Eddy's parents saw Nazz as more mature, grown-up and responsible than either Ed or Edd.

Added DiffLines:

*** Adding on to this answer: even if Eddy ''didn't'' invite Jonny, I'm pretty sure Jonny would just show up anyway because Jonny is usually known to be a pest.

Added DiffLines:

** Don't take this cartoon too seriously - first off, we already established on the Headscratchers page that the Kids (Kevin, Jimmy, Jonny, Rolf, Sarah and Nazz) are stupid kids who think violence is the answer to everything. Even so, Eddy was just being an idiot and he was so greedy with how much money he could make off the Mutant or Raccoon scam that he invited Jonny a second time because he was only thinking the more suckers he invites, the more profits he could earn. There are times when Eddy is so greedy with money that he can be so stupid even ''Ed'' points it out like in "Here's Mud in Your Ed".
