* AdoredByTheNetwork: Throughout its run, the series was well-liked by the network, always receiving good advertising. It eventually became the network's longest-running series, airing a total of 70 episodes running through 5 and 1/4 seasons across ten years and was eventually, the last Cartoon Cartoon still airing new episodes. And the best part? It was even given a GrandFinale in the form of a [[MadeForTVMovie TV movie]] that wrapped up most plot threads and gave the titular characters a very happy ending (contrast with most shows that either get screwed out of a full run, have a finale that doesn't satisfy fans, or don't even get a finale movie or limited-run post-script season for whatever reason[[note]]common reasons include: the show creator died, had a mental breakdown, retired, moved to another network, hated the show he or she worked on and wants to forget it, decided that giving fans what they want isn't a good idea, ruined his career due to sexual misconduct or saying something racist; the network never liked the show and wants to erase it from their collective memory; the crew members and cast moved on, the show wasn't that good to begin with, etc[[/note]]). Needless to say, the series was admired and still remains a well-respected favorite among both viewers and the network.

** HBO Max has the entire series, including the finale episode "May I Have This Ed/Look Before You Ed" (which are shown as the last two episodes of season five rather than as a partial season six, and for some reason are stretched to widescreen). Sadly, for those looking for the holiday specials and the finale movie (where the Eds are chased down by the kids for an unseen prank they played and Ed finally confronts his bullying older brother), you won't find either of them on HBO Max.

** The show's transition to digital ink and paint during the fifth season came at the behest of Danny Antonucci, who wanted to keep using cels to maintain the "old school" cartoon look. By that point, cels simply weren't cost-effective.

** There are several other {{Missing Episode}}s as well. "Special Ed", which was finished but never aired due to (depending on who you ask) being either too surreal or "too real" for television. Not much else is known about it other than the fact that it might have been ADayInTheLimelight for Ed, and may have even been an explanation of why Ed is the way he is, hence the "too real" explanation. The other two, "Luck Be an Ed Tonight" and "A Room and an Ed", may have never even left the planning stages.

Added DiffLines:

** The production of the previously ordered sixth season of the series was replaced by the 90-minute television film, ''Big Picture Show'', not because of a lack of interest in new episodes, but rather because the entire a.k.a. Cartoon staff was occupied with the making of the film. Cartoon Network agreed to Antonucci's decision to make a film rather than the sixth season. Two sixth-season episodes were already in production, though, so Cartoon Network aired them as a special event in June 2008.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: [[ZigzaggedTrope Zig-zagged.]] While it's obvious that the show had elements that either were no longer seen in society (or were seen in a considerably lessened occurrence) or some viewers had never heard of, such as records, [=VCRs=], the lack of any video game consoles, children spending most of their time outside and even Patric Caird's brilliant score for the show has a 50s/60s-ish vibe to it, the actual time frame of the show was intentionally left ambiguous. This way, viewers of all generations can enjoy it without being alienated by any overt and outdated references they may not get.
