"Messy messy messy..."

Edd, mostly referred to by his nickname "Double D," is one of the three protagonists in Ed, Edd n Eddy.

Why He Rocks

  • He is physically the weakest but the most intelligent member of the Eds.
  • He is Ed and Eddy's closest friends throughout the entire series
  • He knows that two wrongs do not make a right.
  • He is also a good friend to anyone in need of help.
  • He forgives Eddy for his actions in "Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show."  
  • Great voice acting.  
  • Excellent, memorable character design, most notable the stocking on top of his head, which has become iconic.  
  • Incredibly funny antics.  
  • His friendship with the Eds can be very heartwarming at times.  
  • He's the most kindhearted and empathetic of the Eds, which helps to care about him on a personal level, and feel bad for him when Eddy gets him in terrible situations, all because of their friendship.  

Bad Qualities

  • He was unlikable in "Sorry, Wong Ed".
  • He impersonated the principal in "Smile for the Ed", but his actions get Eddy in trouble instead.
  • Edd is the most cowardly of the trio, which causes him to run away more hurriedly than his friends, leaving them to their own devices.  
  • While his friendship with the other Eds can be heartwarming at times, you can't help feel bad for him, because he's actually a good person, and Eddy takes advantage of their friendship all the time to get him to do bad things.  


  • Edd is the first character to appear in the series.
  • Edd's eye color is a blue-green, as seen on the box art of Ed, Edd n Eddy - The Mis-Edventures.
  • Edd has many pets, all of which are insects of some kind.
  • Edd has a cactus named "Jim" and a small potted shrub named "Al."
  • Edd has a very active social life at school, as he is a journalist for the Peach Creek Jr. High Tattler, the president of the Happy Cluckers club, and at one point, the president of the Safety Club.
  • Edd mentions in "A Fistful of Ed" that he is a pacifist.
  • Edd's shoe size is five, as revealed in "A Case of Ed".
  • In "No Speak Da Ed," it is revealed that Edd has a Norwegian pen pal named Gerta.
  • Edd was first shown playing a pedal steel guitar in "Avast Ye Eds". Even though he dislikes the instrument, he is shown to be highly skilled at playing it. He can be seen playing it in "Brother, Can You Spare an Ed?" "Rambling Ed," and "Little Ed Blue."
    • His stage name, "88 Fingers Eddward" is a reference to either the Chicago punk band 88 Fingers Louie, or The Flintstones gangster character, "88 Fingers Louie", who sells pianos.
  • Edd, Rolf, and the Kanker Sisters are the only characters known to have been born outside Peach Creek.
  • Edd's middle name is "Marion," as revealed in "Your Ed Here."
  • In the Polish dub of the show, Edd is called "Chudy Edd" ("Slim Edd"). This is because Polish dub directors believed the direct translation of "Double D," "Podwójny D," would be too long.
  • In "Take This Ed and Shove It," Old Edd mentions that he has a pet cat named Niels Bohr, a reference to the Danish physicist of the same name.
  • Little is known for certain about what is under Edd's hat. In "From Here to Ed", Edd is so desperate to keep it a secret, that Eddy was able to blackmail Edd into helping him get revenge on Kevin by threatening to tell the cul-de-sac kids (and possibly the viewers) what was under Edd's hat.
    • The "blonde hair" theory for Edd originates from a misread interview once present on the now-offline A.K.A. Cartoon website, in which a staff member was asked for his opinion.
    • The "cornrow" theory for Edd originates from a Cartoon Network game called "Lunchroom Rumble." The game, however, is not considered canon, as it was not made by A.K.A. Cartoon.
    • Samuel Vincent, Edd's voice actor, has suggested in a tongue-in-cheek manner that a conjoined twin may be underneath Edd's hat.
    • Ed, Eddy and Sarah are the only characters to have ever seen what is under Edd's hat.
    • In Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show, Edd's hat comes off for a short while, exposing the top of his head (unseen to viewers) for the second time in the series. Based on Ed and Eddy's reactions, especially Ed saying "Does it hurt, Double D?" it is possible that he has a scar or deformity beneath his hat. However, it's possible that Ed and Eddy could've been joking about what they were seeing.
  • Lee is the only girl in the series to not harbor romantic feelings or at least temporarily demonstrate romantic activity toward Edd, even though she, along with her sisters, has kissed him.
  • According to a special feature on the Ed, Edd n Eddy Vol.1: Edifying Ed-ventures DVD, Plank describes Edd as a "ladies' man."
  • Danny Antonucci has said that Edd is mostly based on his youth. During his youth, he apparently loved to be organized, neurotic, and analytical. He also mentioned that Edd's parents' sticky note practice is based on his actual parents.

  • He and Kevin (not including Eddy's Brother) are the only characters that are seen wearing their hats mostly throughout the series.
  • In Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show, Edd mentions it's difficult for him to sleep in an unlabeled environment. In several previous instances, he is shown sleeping in foreign environments just fine. It is possible that his behavior changed over time.
