Go To

"Cry Ed" is the 26th episode of Season 2 of Ed, Edd n Eddy.


  • Angry Guard Dog: Jimmy is initially completely safe inside the Playsafe Suit Double D improvised for him, but he unfortunately lands right into a backyard with an angry dog, which chews open a hole in the suit, sending Jimmy helplessly flying away.
  • Attention Whore: The plot kicks into action because Eddy is jealous of Jimmy's injuries stealing attention away from him,

  • Bad "Bad Acting": When Eddy is faking an injury to gain attention, Double D plays along with it as an actor, but he clearly phones in his performance.
  • Butt-Monkey: Jimmy breaks his foot by getting a tiny clothespin dropped on it, gets crushed under a tree (implied to have been knocked down by a squirrel), and then gets sent flying off helplessly when a dog chews a hole into his Playsafe Suit.
  • Here We Go Again!: Just when the kids think Jimmy is safe from injury inside Double D's Playsafe suit, he falls right into a backyard with a dog, tearing a hole in it and sending him flying away, with the kids tailing right behind.
  • Made of Plasticine: Zigzagged; Jimmy gets his foot broken by a clothespin falling onto it. But later on, he gets completely crushed under a tree, and eventually recovers despite some more injuries.
  • Made of Iron: Jimmy gets crushed under a large tree and survives. Eddy gets an entire house dropped on him, courtesy of Ed, and comes out intact.
    • Subverted with Eddy's "Better Than Jimmy's Playsafe Suit". At first it seems impenetrable, but Rolf is able to split it open by simply hitting a spot on it that had shoddy spot welding.
  • Minor Injury Overreaction: When the clothespin bounces onto Jimmy's foot.
    • It could also be that he's THAT weak.
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: Eddy receives a well-deserved one from Rolf and Kevin at the end of the episode.
  • Oh, Crap!: Eddy and Double D have this reaction when they see Ed lifting a house in front of them, about to drop it down on Eddy. Double D high tails it, while Eddy gets crushed.
    • Eddy is initially cocky that his improvised Playsafe Suit will protect him from Kevin and Rolf, but when Rolf quickly breaks open the suit, Eddy whimpers like a puppy dog as they prepare to thrash him.
  • Screwball Squirrel: While Jimmy is resting on a lawn chair, he notices a squirrel off screen. The next time we see Jimmy, he's crushed under a tree, and it's implied the squirrel somehow knocked it down onto him.
  • Super Strength: Ed lifts an entire house off its foundation and drops it onto Eddy so he can really be injured.

How well does it match the trope?
