YMMV / 100 Deeds for Eddie McDowd

Go To

  • Fan Fic Fuel: The series was Cut Short with Eddie still needing 60 good deeds to become human again. This opened up plenty of possibilities to Eddie fulfilling his end of the bargain with the Drifter.
  • Fridge Horror:
    • One episode shows that Eddie isn't alone in having a Baleful Polymorph.
    • Also the fact that the Drifter apparently erased Eddie's parents from existence until Eddie becomes human again is pretty terrifying.

  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Those old enough to remember and recognize Brenda Song playing an Asian and Nerdy character usually have a chuckle at her current ditzy roles in Disney productions.
  • Retroactive Recognition
    • Ethan is played by Aaron Paul, the future face of Jesse Pinkman.
    • Gwen Taylor is played by Morgan Kibby who is a band member of M83. Fans of the music flocked to this show just to see the singer at a young age.
  • Tear Jerker: When Eddie befriends another human turned dog. At the end of the episode she turns back into a human and thanks Eddie for being a good friend before saying goodbye. Just hearing Eddie call after her knowing that she couldn't hear him was truly sad to watch.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: One episode has Eddie meet another dog who as it turns out, is a girl who was also turned into a dog like him, and subsequently had to perform 100 good deeds. (And just like Eddie, the only person who could hear her talk was the person whose car she last drove into a pool.) However, the episode she's introduced in was her performing her 100th good deed and becoming human again. Surprisingly a lot of kids went on Nickelodeon's boards and thought that she should have been around for a bit longer.


How well does it match the trope?
