WMG / Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show

Go To

Eddy's brother owns the ammusement park

The "Wizard of Oz" character development will continue for the Eds as they grow
Eddy will grow to take several levels in kindness, Edd will become more confident and willing to stand up for himself and his friends and Ed will start to get smarter.

Eddy's parents disowned his brother when they discovered his abuse. the point that he's pretty much an UnPerson. The Eds have to go on a quest to track down Eddy's brother because his parents have forbidden all contact.
  • Despite Eddy liking his brother and thinking he's really cool, he has no idea where he lives and has only ever received a single piece of mail from him since he left.
    • When Eddy shows Ed and Double Dee the postcard, he implies his parents don't know he has it. Why would his parents care, unless they didn't want their eldest communicating with them?
  • The brother's bedroom is nailed and chained shut. He's old enough to be living on his own and clearly never comes back and visits, so there's no reason for him to leave anything important to him behind or to care if someone goes into his room.

  • The very first thing Eddy's brother does when he sees Eddy is to ask if "Mom and Dad know you're here", to which Eddy replies to the tune of "of course not". If they'd known where Eddy was going, they would have dragged him right back.

All of this serves as foreshadowing to the inevitable reveal of Eddy's brother's true nature.

Eddy and his brother were acting during the game of "uncle"
In reality, Eddy's brother was never as bad as he acted at the end. He's not perfect by any means (he's bossy and has a bad temper), but he's not a bad guy either. The truth is that after The Scam that Went Too Far, Eddy called his brother and asked him if he and his friends could hide out at his place. However, they both knew that would only be a temporary solution at best, so they came up with a plan that would result in the kids forgiving the Eds. Not only that, but it would give them the acceptance they longed for so long, while Eddy's brother wouldn't lose anything except his standing in the eyes of some middle schoolers (which he could potentially regain after a while). Eddy wasn't as badly hurt as he acted, and his brother only pretended to be knocked unconscious by the door and easily got away from the Kankers.
  • This is the worst and most heinous theory that I have read on this entire website to date. First and foremost if Eddy and his older brother set this all up in advance why did Eddy not know where his brother was? If this was all an elaborate scam surely Eddy's Brother, would have informed his little bro where he is. Secondly if Eddy had set this whole plan up why was he panicking in the beginning, it couldn't be for show because their was nobody to see him packing up. And Eddy isn't prone to panicking when he thinks he's got an ace in the hole. As is evident through out the rest of the movie, and while he does panic when the Kankers show up he quickly regains his composer. Furthermore if this was all apart of the plan he would have told the Edd's about it. He's not an idiot and to this Troper's knowledge he has never kept his scams hidden from his friends. The entire show and movie is rife with evidence of his brother's abuse. When Eddy thinks his brother is in the factory he briefly, and quietly, uses the pipsqueak nickname that his brother constantly used to refer to him. Furthermore threw out the series it's made evident that everyone in the Cul-de-sac, save Naz, is absolutely terrified of Eddy's brother. And during the episode "Ed... pass it on" when Jimmy and Sarah impersonate Eddy's Brother, Eddy becomes terrified and begs his "brother" not to hurt him. And this is ignoring the pleasure that Eddy's Brother takes in torturing Eddy and Double D which is evident in the Slasher Smile he sports during the entire scene. Finally the original plan for the movie was not for the Kankers to molest Eddy's Brother but for the police to arrest him. Which in this Troper's mind puts the Cabash on the "It was all a scam theory." Eddy's Brother is abusive, to try and pretend otherwise not only cheapens the transformation Eddy goes threw in the movie but also reeks of trying to avoid having to acknowedge the realities of domestic abuse.

Johnny's outcast status won't last long
Eventually, he'll figure out what happened, apologize, and be accepted again.

In his youth, Eddy's brother did the same backfiring scam that got the Eds into the situation, only the results were EVEN WORSE
Whereas the Ed's incident (which will be referred to in this WMG as "The Scam of the Century") destroyed a good part of The Lane and got the other kids badly hurt, Eddy's brother's attempt at The Scam of the Century actually KILLED SOMEONE and destroyed a good part of the Cul-De-Sac. With the entire neighbourhood out for his blood and with no-one to back him up, Eddy's brother ran for his life, eventually reaching an in-construction amusement park that was to be called Mongo-A-Go-Go. Disguising himself as a worker, he hid amongst the construction crew until the hunt for him was called off, and, with nowhere else to go, settled down in a trailer that he stole from the builders. He took up work at the park and prepared to live out the rest of his life at Mongo-A-Go-Go, knowing he could never return to Peach Creek after The Scam of the Century.

How well does it match the trope?
