MERRY CHRISTMAS, and also welcome to component one that the season 2 finale!!! This fifty percent hour is also an extremely important come me personally since it’s the first episode I ever watched, means back in 2001. It’s pretty much from my favourite episode, but there’s a details magic in both components of this season finale the really traction me in, and also I’m absolutely excited to study this one. This an initial segment is a Christmas in July special and it has actually my the very least favorite location in the collection because I have the right to never remember how many La’s there are (THREE). Ns guess it’s pretty that ns don’t have to describe this location at all, though, it’s just basic Christmas singing. The Eds even sing it in the episode!

*

Santa write Ed’s name an initial on a list in candy cane ink. His naughty list is barely legible. A small Christmas tree smiles in ~ us, decorate orbs cave from the ceiling and the north Pole workshop background is fascinatingly wonky. The title map is very pretty and I always like come imagine this title card would’ve been reused for Jingle solder Jangle, if the holiday specials were offered title cards.

You are watching: Ed edd n eddy fa la la la ed

This episode is storyboarded by James “Wootie” Wootton and also Joel Dickie, 2 of the series’ strongest, most influential artists. This two have actually previously operated together ~ above ‘Dear Ed’, ‘Honor your Ed’ (this season’s various other pseudo-holiday special), and also ‘Rent-a-Ed’, which room pretty lot all my favourite episodes of season 2.

*

We open on this neat background that Edd’s 2nd floor. I don’t think it ever before looks choose this in any kind of other episodes, either in layout or wallpapering:

*

*

However, we execute learn around a couple of rooms in this quick “sneaking” succession that we don’t obtain to see everywhere else, so ns hope there’s some canon come it!

*

Edd appears and informs united state that Ed and also Eddy are disobeying his parental by play upstairs. We have actually barely any type of idea that this is a Christmas episode yet, however this is still gift directed v such intrigue, you automatically get the feeling this is one unusual and also important episode.

*

Apparently Edd’s parental sleep in the room alongside Edd’s and also have a personal bathroom through “mother” and also “father” (or is the “him” and “her”) towels?

*

*

This drawing has always resonated with me for some reason. It’s unusually season 1 in style, yet usually those season 1 styled illustrations look experimental and unsure– this Edd is very well structured and communicates a details moodiness in his expression. I’m fairly certain this is a Joel Dickie scene.

*

Second shot of the episode and ANOTHER crucial direction has been made: Edd’s parental are offered a moment to communicate prior to we watch their room in full.

-It mirrors the obsessiveness of their strict behavior, one sticky keep in mind is not enough. It borders on goofy even, as it’s hard to imagine together a smart family members writing “Authorized parents Only” without an enjoy it grin ~ above their deals with at the implication the they had to be authorized or that extr parents could be authorized in the future.

-It mirrors the blended signals castle send Edd. They describe themselves by the much more lax “Mom” and “Dad” when Edd only seems comfortable calling them “mother and father.” they switch in between stern dashes before their signatures, and also doodle-hearts to display him affection– seemingly in ~ random as the heart is top top the most ludicrous message. They likewise alternate between the remote “Son” and the an ext open yet authoritative “Edward” (which I have tendency to translate as his parental disrespecting his decision to spell that Eddward, back they eventually come around and also spell the the way he likes part time ~ season 3).

-It also suggests there may be a factor they don’t want him in. Walk Edd capture his parental DOIN’ IT? Is that why they worry about him emotional himself? Is the why castle sleep in separate beds?

-It additionally sets united state up for the upcoming step of Ed and also Eddy playing through Edd’s parents’ sticky notes. Interestingly, yet most likely coincidentally, this minor little bit from component A that this season 2 finale is expanded on in component B the the season 3 premiere, when Ed and also Eddy create fake difficult notes for Edd to obey.

Final thought: HEY that WOOD detail ON THE DOOR IS OVERLAPPING THE KNOB OUTLINE.

*

Edd come in and tells his friend he’ll have to speak to an attorney. While I’m interested in even if it is or no Edd or his family actually have actually an attorney, it’s bedroom analysis time!!!

Framed pear

Pear calendar - this sets increase Eddy’s countless upcoming lines about it being July and also not Christmas, but I think this is likewise our very first sign that the summer has actually progressed beyond season 1’s June calendars. July seems to last every the method until season 4’s ‘They speak to Him Mr. Ed’ in ~ the latest, which is the last July calendar in the display I’m conscious of.

Edd’s dad has a fedora top top this wall. Eddy’s dad has actually a fedora in his closet in the 2nd Christmas special, ‘Jingle jingle Jangle’. Ed’s dad MAY have actually thrown his very own fedora once Ed one the spelling punishment in ‘Too clever For His very own Ed’.

Edd’s parents’ shoes. In season 3, Edd says his mom has actually charcoal shoes inserts, which is a means of deodorizing shoes.

The left next of the shoe mat doesn’t have finished outlines and also the left next of the cap rack is weird bare– i think this shot was claimed to be zoomed in more.

I think this is the first and only complete appearance of any type of character’s parents’ rooms (Eddy’s parents’ room seems to appear slightly in JJJ and also BPS, and an in similar way Ed and also other children have shown sections that low-detail rooms that might pass because that parents’, but the Kankers don’t also seem come have space for their mommy at all). It’s fascinating that Edd’s parents room the only parents to acquire so much information, out of everybody. I additionally think AKA refrains from showing Edd’s Xmas in JJJ because it’s in-depth a tiny here.

*

Edd’s mother wears a pear-print sleeping cap.

Three much more framed pear paintings/photos. Pears room everybody’s favourite thing around Edd’s parents. Nobody’s totally sure what this joke expected to the background artists, yet I take it it together a authorize that Edd moved to Peach Creek from a pear-loving town.

Perfectly symmetrical bed area (or and also they could control with the provided layout).

Beds look Christmas-themed, or at least display an interest in complementary colors.

Beds space separate, together in i Love Lucy-era shows where you couldn’t display a couple sharing a bed and also imply sexual relations. I choose to think they’re just extremely prudish and also not loveless, but either translate is possible.

First assist kits in ~ the foot of the beds and also fire extinguisher placed next to Dad’s bed– an oz of prevention! (does that look an ext like a exhilaration detector or a irradiate on the ceiling? probably a light but I think it’d it is in funny if every the fire-safety utilities are limited to your room)

They labeled their waste basket, however don’t seem to share Edd’s penchant because that labelmakers, preferring come write straight on the object.

Do those look choose egg timers or alert clocks or mini fans on the nightstands?

*

Eddy uses his normal female falsetto imitate Edd’s mother, telling him to do his homework. (IN SUMMER?) It claims something around Eddy the he leaps top top the possibility to play the mom while Ed dram the dad.

*

Edd’s dad attract glasses– the cartoony type that rotate eyeballs right into just pupils. Edd’s dad’s head additionally seems to be a bit larger than Ed’s. He more than likely isn’t wall-eyed, yet one can always hope.

“The mind is a horrible organ to shovel!” ns love Ed’s teasing effort at fatherly wisdom. I wonder exactly how accurate Ed n Eddy space with your impersonations… Is this is just their presumption of what Edd’s parents space like?

*

With really season 4-esque poses (specifically renders me think of ‘The good Ole Ed’– the episode’s by Scott Diggs, yet I think I’ve heard story that he assisted on the parental room section of this episode?), Edd attempts to pull Ed out of the bed and also then blames his weak on his blood sugar being “a tad low.” ns loooove that pose that him checking his pulse, it always sticks in my memory, and also this totality quiet “blood sugar” minute is your common effective Edd personality beat.

*

Eddy hides in the sheets, if Edd panics, v funny faces and arm movements, about having to clean the bed.

*

Edd hears Eddy’s voice across the room, also though he’s supposedly sitting up in the bed.

*

????? eddy just how EDDY HOW

*

Eddy rides Mom’s spinning vanity mirror. Mom has make-up, an additional Waste basket, and also another framed pear. Ed pops out of a drawer that supposedly is complete of unused sticky notes! i guess Edd’s parents buy in bulk.

Ed chases Eddy and applies difficult notes to him, leading to this convenient map of Edd’s parents’ room: https://38.media.jamesmerse.com.com/f88eaf8a45d58cd27a98367770c8e085/jamesmerse.com_ngwj0iH28b1r8d4teo1_1280.png

The picture was too wide to include in this post and also apparently can’t be uploaded properly, however this vanity mirror is alongside the mom’s bed (rather than throughout from it, where Edd was looking at Eddy), the beds space on the right wall instead of across from the door… WAIT, THIS ROOM IS lacking A fourth WALL, THAT home window WOULD it is in LOOKING right into EDD’S ROOM, THIS DOESN’T do SENSE. The left wall surface has an additional fire extinguisher, though, so… much more symmetry.

*

Ed throw his tongue in Edd’s face, Edd finds that the tongue has actually a misspelled “stiky note” on it.

*

“SSSSTROKE!” In all my years of the town hall this episode, I’ve never ever stopped to wonder what the hell this point is. Do any type of of my followers acknowledge this thing or go this look like something Eddy constructed from Edd’s parents’ stuff?

*

Mean Ed… Hey, there’s an “Eddy’s eye separating involuntarily” step in JJJ too! Love accidental parallels.

*

“BOING!”

*

“SMACK!”

Man, end of season 2 and also the ache stars still aren’t always drawn together pentagrams?

*

“WOOOOOSH”

*

“PANT trousers PANT!”

We’re finally starting to acquire closer to the allude of the series where I understand behind the scene info and also don’t need to speculate on whatever (the digital era will certainly be the mass of my knowledge though), so here’s a funny story! This little bit with the Eds speaking in sound effects supposedly happened since the storyboard artist forgot to compose dialogue in and also wrote this part really fast before handing it come Danny. Ns think i heard it to be Scott, yet maybe this story was simply relayed through Scott?

*

Ed lands in the closet, giving us with a neat color scheme change, a segue point for the story, and an ext parental information to analyze!

It looks favor Edd’s dad golfs and goes bowling.

Edd’s dad has actually multiples of one plaid suit.

Edd’s mom has actually shoes because that everyday, favor Edd’s daily hats in season 5’s ‘Cleanliness is alongside Edness’.

Edd’s mommy has more suit-color variety, but seems to share the dad’s attention in only wearing suits.

They keep a crate of Edd’s baby clothes. Follow to the baby ending to season 5’s ‘Every Which method But Ed’, the would encompass a smaller sized orange shirt and overall versions of Edd’s existing day violet shorts.

*

A box full of masking tape

Sterilizing kit

Emergency sticky notes and also a box that claims “bulk” something… ns guess they carry out buy in bulk!

Which of this suits perform you think Edd’s mommy wears the most??? I favor the white one.

*

Ed pops balloon wrap so hard that the blows a feet in the ceiling. Fruitcake drops out of the box.

“UMBRELLAS 1959-1982” THERE, SEE? THE show DOESN’T TAKE ar IN THE 70S. Are YOU HAPPY!? Sorry, I’ve been wait so lengthy to screencap the (I dislike screencapping my DVDs, evaluating the Itunes versions for season 3+ is going to be method easier).

*

Edd’s negative flat face. Also the background appears to have adjusted to the former of the closet even though the Eds room standing in the ago of the closet at this point.

*

Cool shot! Eddy think the fruitcake is bologna. Don’t worry, Eddy, I’ve never actually checked out fruitcake either.

*

When Edd says “bologna” in this shot, it constantly sounds so weird come me. Edd describes that this is an ancestral fruitcake that his household parades it roughly every Christmas. ..What does the mean? castle walk around with this heavy fruitcake because that a while and sing? Is it just him and his parental or does extended family come end to visit the fruitcake too?

Also, ns couldn’t review it in the previously shot, however Edd’s parents have a crate of Extra exhilaration Detectors! They really care about fire safety.

*

This rewinding gag is perfect and was the exact allude I realized ns was in also deep v this show. Ns WASN’T also 3 MINUTES right into MY very first EPISODE.

*

YAY PENTAGRAMS

there’s a many unintentionally mean Ed in this special. Not a pan of that, yet it’s tough to argue v such well-drawn results. Ns love every the gags whereby Ed bumps his head into Eddy’s face.

Ed’s Christmas list:

a paris saucer

a pen and pencil set

four egg rolls

a subscription to Chunky Puff Quarterly

a box of band-aids

a huge bolt/boat/bump (subtitles speak “book” but I greatly hear “bolt”)

*

Edd is one of two people repressing anger or keeping an eye the end for his parents throughout Ed’s list.

*

I don’t think Ed’s actually maintaining count.

*

Eddy explains that he hates Christmas because he constantly gets clothes. This is a relatively minor element of this episode, together Eddy pretty quickly embraces Christmas because that the caroling scam later on and mostly simply cares about whether or no it’s July. However, it i do not care the subject of the whole half-hour Christmas special, 4 or 5 years later.

*

Ed teases Eddy the Santa to know Eddy’s cheeky (Ed, you were just JOINING in Eddy’s naughtiness a 2nd ago) and Eddy says that Santa don’t understand squat. I feel like this story pushes Eddy towards his naughtier later behavior.

*

Ed looks because that Santa in an aerial shot, which provides me think Santa’s sorta the God of the EEnE belief systems. Edd has a “Lord” though so i guess religion likewise exists.

This episode pipeline Santa a realistic mystery, but the later on special establishes that Santa is a real, oddly-cruel entity.

These shadows it seems to be ~ UNUSUALLY random, don’t they?

*

Ed hears sleigh bells and also drops Eddy to laugh mindlessly for method too long. Edd collapses in the background, but overlaps the foreground doorway layer.

This is a REALLY an excellent drawing the Ed.

*

“You’re scaring me, Ed.” an excellent expression and also a commonly classy selection for season 2 Eddy to respond with casual bemusement instead of angry at gift suffocated and dropped.

*
Apparently Edd’s parents’ window is the top window on the side of the house? This doesn’t really match up with more canon depictions the the house, though.

This step is a pretty typical reference come Scrooge asking what job it is towards the finish of ‘A Christmas Carol’.

*

This was my first time see Sarah and Jimmy, or any type of characters as well as the Eds. Ns didn’t realize buy it was a relative of Ed or the these were world who knew the Eds well. I thought they were simply random citizens of everything the Eds’ people was, the way most mirrors work. I did no realize what I remained in for.

..Where space they running from? They’re going come Jimmy’s house, so this says they’re to run from the candy store street or something.

*

Sarah attempts to feign amnesia, come avoid another party crashed through the Eds. Cool shot!

*

Love these sarah faces, haha. Jimmy’s feeling extra innocent and friendly toward the Eds today and misses the point of Sarah’s lie. He reminds she of the party they’re heading to and also excitedly describes Piggy bank Day come Eddy. I’ve always figured Jimmy was just being the end of character because that exposition purposes, yet is it feasible he’s feeling open up to Eddy since they currently share a typical interest in money native the training in ‘Ed in a Half-Shell’ a few episodes ago?

*

Look in ~ these good Eddys.

Jimmy makes Piggy bank Day sound prefer it’s to be happening every year, yet Eddy reacts choose he’s never heard the it. Ns love the fake holidays in EEnE, however I’ve constantly wondered what the beginning of this one is. It appears awfully conveniently designed because that Eddy, yet it’s comprise the kids invented it themselves. Afterwards we acquire ‘Friendship Day’, i m sorry seems favor a vacation Jimmy invented. Earlier we acquired ‘Garage sale Day’, which can believably be a neighborhood event past the kids’ invention. An interesting headcanon is that the Eds developed these holidays years ago for scam objectives (ex: offering greeting cards), in which instance I’d imagine the Eds’ forgetfulness would be due to the fact that they didn’t realize just how deeply the fake holidays had recorded on.

*

Sarah’s difficulties Jimmy’s unwarranted exposition through a sarcastic “WHY DON’T girlfriend TELL THEM your SHOE SIZE, JIMMY?” Jimmy calmly responds “why?” yet his confront is plainly screaming. It’s always bugged me.

*

Edd is really familiar through Piggy bank Day, together if that holds memories together cherished together Christmas!

*

WHOA EDDY, down BOY

*

ooooh, i wish over there were an ext times the the pain-explosions obtained to display other emotions too, like greed here!

*

Season 2 shipping

Eddy complains that Ed shouldn’t have the ability to find mistletoe in July. Why wouldn’t it simply be in the Xmas box they simply found? and also while it’s more than likely fake, I’m pretty sure actual mistletoe space evergreen, July shouldn’t it is in an issue!

*

ewww

*

Ed’s kissy encounters are great, hahaha

Edd claims there’s no kissing enabled in his parents’ room. His parents have actually expected the to shot kissing there? His parents have actually mistletoe in ~ all? Edd likewise worries that someone may be watching– most likely a fourth wall break, but would the canon idea be the he think his parents are residence right now?

*

We get an unexplained scene transition with a little blur in ~ the end. The youngsters are in ~ Jimmy’s house, whereby he has lots that balloons, a big sign through lights, “oink” and also “squeee” banners, and also a “Pig Out” bobbing because that apples station. All the youngsters have celebratory pig noses and Jimmy has a entirety damn outfit. CUTE! however now i feel favor Jimmy IS the one that made this up.

I never noticed until now that almost half the episode is invested on Edd’s parents’ room. Christmas takes over surprisingly so late in this special, so I’m happy they eventually made a true Xmas special. It’s additionally a the majority of fun to watch the differences between the grasp of 11-minute specials and also the later on half-hour specials. Still, i wonder if there was ever a allude where this episode was JUST around Edd’s parents’ room.

*

Everything around this feels inexplicable to the show at this point– together detail!

*

Jonny’s cute! “SNORT SNORT SNORT” “Oink oink to you too!” It’s scenes choose this the annoy me that afterwards it becomes a point that Nazz doesn’t choose Jonny.. Lock seem favor a funny pair!

WHAT space THE to apologize FLOATING IN???

*

This is together a weird moment. The staging renders it seem favor Jonny and also Nazz space super creeps. The slime all over Nazz even makes she seem CREEPIER 보다 Jonny, i beg your pardon is an impressive feat.

*

But the punchline is just that Kevin is uncomfortable partaking in your childish jokes, trying to play turn off his “oink” together cool and dismissive together possible. It’s together a quick reversal to go from Nazz and Jonny being weird come the implication the Kevin is in reality the weird one the end of the kids. I’m not certain it lands together a hoax exactly, yet it’s quiet an insightful character beat.

*

Jimmy cries around his conflict feelings of agony and also ecstasy, however Sarah encourages to accomplish the violent impulses. She’s type of a little psycho.

That background house (Nazz’s home with wrong colors) has actually Christmas lights everywhere it.

*

However, in the following shot, Ed is only beginning to decorate it and also doesn’t gain to finish. Friend DON’T should MAKE SNOWSHOES TO be AN ELF, ED, and also YOU absolutely DON’T need THEM WHILE using A LADDER.

*

Eddy interrupts Jimmy’s dilemma with this fancy scam!

Is that favor a… Piggy financial institution Day liquid cane or did Ed placed that on Jimmy’s lawn without anyone noticing? This background also reverts to some weird season 1 principles of the cul-de-sac, v driveways the are part of the street rather of component of the sidewalk and monochrome houses in the distance.

*

Jonny likes this scam, Sarah’s mad that the party’s been crashed, Jimmy’s interested, Nazz is unnerved and also Kevin’s drunk. “LOOK GUYS, IT’S DORK…. And also BEANS!!!”

*

Sockless Edd: “…Beans? an edible seed?” together a kid, i wasn’t conscious “pork and beans” was a typical food combo, for this reason this joke offered to confuse me as lot as that did Edd. It additionally pairs nicely v his line about brussel sprouts at the finish of the scene.

HEY, this float’s powered by the Eds’ bike native ‘Dawn of the Eds,’ rather than the recolored instead of they had in ‘A Boy and also His Ed’ and also broke in ‘Ready, Set… Ed’! ns guess they gained the old bike back eventually. Likewise I think this is the first time we watch Edd biking instead of Ed.

*

A collection of yes, really well drawn Eddys pitch the scam, which will supposedly empty piggy banks via suction fairly than smashing. (assuming you’ve already seen the episode, spoiler alert, this is a rare situation of a scam that actually requires lying/scamming)

*

Jimmy’s excited come cancel his therapy however is halted by a an especially hilarious “NOT YET” from a gift-bearing Ed.

This Ed outfit way the human being to me. It never even occurred to me until currently that I prefer this outfit for this reason much due to the fact that this was the an initial episode ns saw, but I’ve always preferred drawing Ed without his coat and/or through this :3 kitty turtleneck top top (did his aunt through the cats knit it because that him??). The colors suit him and also are really basic to remember. I additionally like anytime the Eds create their surname down and it looks like the theme song font.

Ed bends down right into the gift box…

*

…Only come come back up, having actually forgotten what he to be bending under for, then remembering, and having to bend into the crate a 2nd time. Ns love how this character beat is shamelessly eating up time, haha. A really Futurama-esque usage of a stupid character.

*

Typical Ed bit, yet why didn’t he simply use the huge candy cane that was in front that Jimmy’s house earlier??

I’m loving these drawings of the kids.

Jimmy, Nazz and also Jonny’s dwellings are on model (aside from Nazz’s home usually being white and blue instead of yellow and orange here) while every the other homes have to simply be pink? interesting choice.

*

Kevin notifies Ed the it’s July. “AND A PARTRIDGE IN A PEAR–” Yay, floating eyes. I guess i can take into consideration this a an ideal reason for Eddy to lose at the finish of this episode, shovel to the confront isn’t very nice.

the cat has actually a different challenge now yet i choose this one too

*

Eddy volunteers Jimmy’s piggy bank to go first, saying there’s a discount. Jimmy’s scared. Sarah’s prepared to it is in mad, however I guess not mad sufficient to actually protect against Eddy? Jonny’s cool with it. Nazz is really worried. Kevin is at the same level that “done v this” as he’s constantly been other than suddenly he has actually a bat.

*

edd tech

*

“sha-ZAMMMM~”

love that jonnyism

love those small moments where we obtain to check out the youngsters being impressed by the Eds

*

i desire to care about this polisher/waxer thing yet THEY used THE SOUND impact OF A man GOING “OINKOINKOINKOINK” accelerated REALLY FAST and also THAT’S means MORE IMPORTANT

*

At this point it becomes clear the the tech has been diminished to just Edd fumbling approximately with tools videotaped to poles. Good showmanship, every the same.

*

Eddy Freudian slips around the Christmas fall Ed hangs in former of him and there’s a funny subtle animation of Eddy’s eyes slowly looking up at Ed.

*

Eddy and also Ed argue around scamming vs decorating till Ed overhears Edd complaining inside the pig. Edd blames gullibility for everything he’s doing in here, which suggests that around this season 2-3 era, Edd’s moral dilemmas begin stemming indigenous Eddy misinforming Edd around the nature of your scams. Of course, there’s been plenty of negative times already for Edd to mistrust Eddy from, however something feel important around this, gift a season finale and also all.

Inside the pig is a car Wash authorize from the junkyard and a “DRINK GLUG” sign which is a referral to ‘Ed n Seek’:

*

*

Ed requests that “SANTA preventive HIM,” and reveals that Edd is going to rest the pig. The cheat is a lie.

Edd continues to live life sockless and Glug has changed to Clug. Yum

*

“he-llooooo”

nothing deep to analysis here yet i’ve constantly loved this kevin face

*

Jimmy freaks out and also makes Edd cry. Aww, this supplied to be used as clipart ~ above the first EEnE fansite.

*

Edd sobs the loudest realest crying in the show.

*

the children watch Edd cry and silently judge Eddy. Ns love the they’re taking this kinda seriously.

I think Jonny’s reaction is the best, he just… kinda desires to leave

*

Aww cute Eddy! he tries to say Edd’s hat is also tight and the low-circulation is what caused this error. It always bugged me how comparable this is come “the pantyhose room too tight” pardon a couple of episodes back in ‘Stop, Look and also Ed’.

*

Sarah’s acquired eyelashes space on she eyebrow. I’m additionally seeing an inexplicable amount of eyelids the are broader than the eyes, pretty interesting style choice!

*

Ed brand Eddy as naughty once much more and pipeline Eddy wobbling around from this pose in a nice little of physical comedy. Ed return the pig come Jimmy.

*

Kevin: “It’s far better to give”

Nazz: “than come receive, Ed.”

This shot is so full of Christmas conceit and also IT knows IT.

*

Kevin: “That’s why I’m giving Eddy a knuckle sandwich!”

I dislike violence in Xmas specials more than anything, and yet i feel prefer I’d it is in cool v this, simply on the grounds the it undercuts the previous shoot perfectly. Impressively, they uncover a way better punchline in Rolf knocking both Kevin and Eddy to the ground before Kevin can get violent. (Rolf calls the end “KEVIN! AIRMAIL!” before tossing Wilfred in ~ them because that no reason. I provided to not have the ability to understand ‘airmail’ through his accent however I love the he’s choose up some type of slang already)

(THE sign STILL says CLUG… just how DID THE SIGN move UP TO expose THE ERROR??? i should give credit to my fiancee Erica for pointing this the end to me– it would’ve been devastating if ns missed this continuous typo)

*

Rolf mirrors up late, apparently because he to be walking Wilfred, as plenty of later episodes will certainly confirm to it is in a frequent leisure delight for Rolf. Rolf mistake the Eds’ scam because that “the sow of Christmas past.” I like to think Yeshmiyek (from JJJ) has a huge talking pig in location of Santa’s reindeer. …This is actually a headcanon I came up with for my very own purposes, there is no remembering over there was in reality basis for it in this episode. Love whenever i accidentally sync up v continuity!

Kevin and Eddy have been placed on the very same side for once, make the efforts to convince Rolf the it’s July. I really great we’d gotten a complete episode that made use of Eddy and also Kevin ~ above the exact same side prefer this, they’re so likewise cynical.

*

KEVIN IS NOT allowed TO BE drawn CUTE, WHAT also IS THIS FACE

Rolf says that he has actually smelled the Christmas sow, and it is foul.

*

Everyone’s yes, really well drawn, together they hear to Wilfred oink “O Tannenbaum.” Wilfred is talented.

Jonny compliments Wilfred, I always love the he does.

*

Rolf make the efforts to reference the “angel it s okay its wings” little from ‘It’s a exorbitant Life’, however Jonny isn’t done being cute and also quirky and tries to talk to Wilfred and also act like a pig. I simply love this kid. Ns love that he’s always so much removed indigenous the story that even Ed is placed off by him.

*

Wilfred doesn’t evaluate Jonny’s impression and the story continues.

*

As Rolf walk on around his love for Christmas, Eddy chimes in “Christmas stinks.” nobody cares.

Edd wipes away his last tears in the background, and that sign proceeds to to speak CLUG.

*

Boy, Jonny yes, really got destroyed by Wilfred… I always feel a small bad around it, yet Jonny is tho downright jolly so ns don’t think he minds the roughhousing. Plus, Rolf overcome on Ed’s yoyo come him, native ‘Who, What, Where, Ed’ critical season:

*

Jonny likewise gets a jawbreaker native Ed later. Rolf gives Kevin his unicycle, although i think it’ll return to Rolf’s possession without explanation later on on. Still, it’s cute exactly how happy Kevin is to get it!

*

Rolf appears to run out of points to give away once he reaches the girls, and also starts handing the end his clothes. Sarah and Nazz suppress laughter (love that buy it face) and thank him, however Jimmy sounds favor he genuinely constantly wanted Rolf’s shoe.

*

“Merry Christmas, Rolf~” Cute and also funny. I’m pretty sure I remember see this clip in one of two people a generic Christmas advertisement on CN, or in that compilation the the Eds speak Rolf’s name and also that’s the just context ns can ever think of that in, also when city hall this episode.

Before cut to the following shot, Rolf bobs up together if a heat was reduced out. I wonder if we’ll ever know what happened!

*

Separate-Eyes Eddy make the efforts one last time to collection everyone straight on the date, yet is pushed over through Kevin. Kevin leads everyone to his house for eggnog (he has actually some in July?? non-alcoholic i hope). Rolf desires chestnuts.

*

As everyone frolics, the show surprisingly reflects a little heart by shifting over come a sad, introspective Edd. Us don’t get almost enough of Edd’s next of this story to completely connect to him together its heart, however there’s an interesting sense that something that substance has actually happened to him today and gone unspoken. Maybe it’s that final push into his season 3 personality that I’m always trying come pinpoint.

*

Edd start crying again however Jimmy attempts come cheer that up.

*

A most really strong, emotional illustrations here. Jimmy might only be play a mildly OOC “nice kid” role today however I think there’s a genuine connection between him and also Edd. The varies because that sure, but when they view eye-to-eye in any type of episode, there’s constantly this feeling that they great they knew every other better and really want the finest for each other. The truth that Jimmy tries to urge that Edd take the pig even after Edd uses it ago drives the home. It’s truly fascinating, even with that is minimal development. We don’t get to uncover out even if it is Edd would’ve at some point taken the pig (I always think the looks prefer he’s around to, due to the fact that he transforms to Jimmy), however it would have actually no influence either means because the allude is that Jimmy yes, really does care about whether or not Edd is happy ~ above Christmas, even if it’s July.

Also, ns love/hate the Jimmy placed fake nipples top top his pig costume. And I should probably mention that the prop because that this scam will certainly come back, trashed in the junkyard, in ‘Dueling Eds’ following season. The continuity’s about to acquire really good and I could not be an ext excited.

*

Eddy predictably damages the moment by trying to feign an emotionally connection and get the piggy bank. LOOK at THIS weird FISH FACE.

*

Sarah pertains to rescue Jimmy and his pig native this scene, calling Eddy ‘Scrooge’.

*

Eddy pitifully bemoans, “I don’t acquire it…” There’s one honesty to this moment, in a perfect marriage of expression and also delivery, that i really appreciate. Eddy doesn’t obtain it. Sufficient of him desires to get it that he can recognize his very own failure, however it just isn’t in him in ~ this allude to see past Bro’s teachings and also relate come anybody past that realization.

Edd is a sweetheart in the background, not minding in the slightest the Jimmy didn’t provide him the present due to the fact that the moment still expected so much. It’s a little creepy, though, just how romantic this specific pose seems.

*

Edd delivers basically the same moral as in JJJ, yet it’s interesting to check out it come native somewhere an individual to him as opposed come the later special’s emphasis on Eddy. It renders JJJ feel choose a installation sequel come this episode.

Man, so numerous of these poses were supplied as clipart on that old fansite.

(dirt ~ above the cel approximately his tooth)

*

Eddy realizes he deserve to make money turn off of the required peace ~ above Earth and sets turn off to “get the gift that keeps ~ above giving.”

Edd: “Sounds prefer mother’s brussel sprouts.” classy, edd. An excellent face tho

*

I constantly wonder just what Kevin and Nazz to be doing while hanging out together here…

We obtain mandatory fake-out snow that transforms out to it is in Ed’s dandruff. An old joke however nothing wrong through it. I prefer that the snow is various from just how it yes, really looks in season 6 and also the fake winter step in part A of last season’s finale:

*

There will also be fake eye midway through season 3, make from to wash detergent. I REALLY care around wannabe winter scene in summer shows.

*

I love this background a lot, it helped me walk Kevin’s house design to memory, which consequently led me to committing them all to memory!

*

The Eds have actually taken increase Christmas caroling, and Ed falls, hilariously. They all laugh awkwardly over his mistake.

I love every the winter clothes we view in the summer seasons, I hate that we don’t view them in the winter illustration (although I also love those winter apparel too, don’t obtain me wrong). Edd tho wears a giant coat and Eddy tho wears a sweater, yet it method so lot that this aren’t the exact same colors together their normal clothes. Offers it an ext reality. Also, why doesn’t Edd stay these long versions of his usual pants in fall/winter??

If ns remember correctly, this Edd coat will certainly come ago next season in both parts of the half hour ‘It come From external Ed’ (Ed renders him wear the while moving pancakes to Eddy)/’3 Squares and an Ed’ (in Edd’s laundry).

*

Nazz laughs and gives lock the money from she piggy bank, lot to Kevin’s chagrin. YAY!

*

Later at Jimmy’s house, Sarah and Jimmy have added a festive bow and also beret to your outfits! no really sure just how a beret is festive yet it’s cute. The two room alarmed by the open up commercialism the the Eds’ carols but still provide up your money without resistance.

*

Jimmy apparently has actually a piano? the is method more necessary to me the Eddy is apparently great at play piano. It’s choose one final hurrah because that season 1-2 Eddy’s basic competence, as opposed come him being diminished to play triangle in the institution band through season 5’s ‘Smile for the Ed’. Season 4 does present that Eddy can play trumpet also at least.

(I must probably cite how cute it is come hear the Eds all singing together for once– I want a music so bad)

*

Edd and also Eddy avoid singing at this odd sight (EDD just LEAVES), yet Ed keeps going. Rolf’s unibrow isn’t colored in.

So this is probably the best time to carry up an old dispute in the fandom. Part fans enjoy that Rolf doesn’t mention Christmas by surname in jingle Jingle Jangle, if others take it it together a break from continuity, suspect it method he doesn’t memory Christmas anymore. Despite the various outfit and less varied decorations (are these, like, buffalo meat? they’re yes, really huge), i think the layout of meat below connects so lot to his JJJ Christmas that it’s ridiculous to overlook. I think they simply forgot to mention the holiday by name again. Some world mistake Yeshmiyek together a replacement because that Jesus, however Yeshmiyek seems to it is in his country’s version of Befana, a candy-delivering witch that replaces Santa in Italian folklore: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Befana

*

Eddy shows up to hate bacon, despite being a chubby chef. This is retained up with next season, when he complains around Edd’s family members not having any type of junk food, while waving around Edd’s pack of bacon.

*

Edd states Santa would be proud of Ed for bringing the Xmas spirit to the cul-de-sac. This says that Edd to trust in Santa, or has seen him before JJJ. This doesn’t break continuity, but there is a sense throughout JJJ the Edd is staying clear of talking around Santa. Since Santa turns out to be real, Edd’s ideas may have never been an issue and just an accidental omission prefer Rolf’s “Christmas,” however it’s constantly on my mind when I watch the special.

It’s for this reason cute the Ed and also Edd it seems ~ to have been decorating the lane together. Today, the lane’s fence appears to open up to a field, through one little pine tree to dress up.
