The Ed, Edd and Eddy theory
I know it' s a bit long, but I came across this theory on
ychan' s /x/ board and thought it was an interesting
read. I hope you guys like it and let me know what you
think because I found a similar story about the
Rugrats" being made up characters in Angelica' s mind
and "Pokemon" being Ash' s coma induced dream.
Anyhow, I would have never thought that the kids of
the are... dead.
We hadn' t always been here. But the neighborhood has. Even before it was a
neighborhood on earth this one had been here. Here for those that would be
lost on those cursed grounds, here for those who would die long before their
real life ever truly began, here for those who never really wanted to grow up.
We come from different times and we come from different lives, but one thing
remains true of all of us. We lived on the earthly realm ofthe neighborhood at
some pointin our lives and died long before our time was supposed to come.
We don' t remember much of our lives in the since the last member of
our group joined us and certainly we won' t remember now when the next
spirit comes, but here is what we do know: Rolf was the first to come here.
Unlike most of us he was born in far off lands and even in the afterlife hasn' t
lost the touch (ibis old world upbringing. He lived in the neighborhood before
it was developed. The son oh shepherd, he and the rest oenis family came to
start a farm on the lands that would soon turn into the place we would all
eventually reside in. He died in 1903. While tending to the familys animals, the
jailbroke loose from its pen andin Rolf' s efforts to stop the beast he was
trampled to death. That is why even though he brought many (ibis family' s
livestock with him in spirit he chose not to bring the cattle along. He continues
to go about the farms business on a daily basis, but is more than happy to
occasionally neglect them to play with the other children ofthe neighborhood.
puny was always the lonely child. In fact Rolf actually became his first human
friend ever when he came to the after his death. His parents moved
onto the grounds of Rows former farm not long after his death. With no other
children around and no fieldwork to take up his time as it did Rolf' s puny drew
into his own mind to a great extent. From the Plank was born. Together they
wandered about the country side climbing trees and getting themselves in
trouble. Sadly this didn' t last forever as a few years later puny became
bedridden with illness. In 1922 he died after a long battle with tuberculosis. He
saw his imaginary friend plank standing by him to his last breath. Even now in
the afterlife without the countryside to play in puny still wastes much unis
time frolicking through the backyards and streets. Eddy was the next to come.
Eddy was born in New York City but moved to the neighborhood in 1932, just as
the Great Depression was hitting Full swing. The neighborhood while still
different was beginning to take form from the fields of its past as families moved
in and split up the lands that had once belonged to Rows family Always a
schooner, Eddy looked to do anything to bring some comfort to his very bare
family life even if it cost him the friendship of others. Eddy died in 1939 after
one unis grand plans to swindle a sap backfired. He drowned trying to cross
the local river after trying to run away from the angry kids that he had tried to
deceive. Even in the afterlife he keeps chasing after the almighty dollar.
Sarah and Ed came together not too long after that. By the late 40' s the
had already nearly taken its final form as one ofthe preplanned developments
that became popular in the post war era. As brother and sister growing up in the
chaos myworld War ll, they both had various ways of escaping their lives as
children of a dead GI and a working mother. Sarah became enraged and
controlling as she sought to make sure that everyone around her knew that she
was in charge, all in an attempt to copy off ocher view ofthe hustle and bustle of
her often working mother Ed on the other hand went about it in a different way.
He just shut it out entirely, in fact he shut out nearly everyone and everything in
the world entirely becoming what appeared to be a complete idiot. Ed chose
instead to become completely involved in the monster movies and comic books
that began to pop up after the war had ended. it wasn' t too long after this that, in
1953, Ed and Sarah died in a car wreck as their mother was taking them to visit
their grandparents. Nam came a time after the brother and sister. Nan was a
flower child, born to a pair turned establishment in the late 60' s. She
was a naturally beautiful girl that had always had a way with boys and men
alike. She lived life on a whim and would often go about flirting and playing
without any intentions. She died in possibly the most horrible way of any
children in the neighborhood. In the summer of '79 a serial killer, who had
broken out of a local asylum, had slipped into her house in the dead of night and
raped and killed her along with her entire family In the trauma ofthose events
she in a way similar to Ed shut out the world entirely and forgot ocher parents
and siblings, which is why in the afterlife she doesn' t ever receive demands from
the nonresistant parents unlike many ofthe others. This gives her much more
time to lounge around and party as she often does.
It didn' t take too long before Edd joined the rest ofthe neighborhood. He was the
child tftwo highly controlling professionals in the age of greed that, despite their
constant absence, dominated his life. As such Edd became quite the intellectual
and a rather meek and shy figure. Always the curious type, he loved to
experiment when given the time away from school and the constant chores of
his parents. This would lead to his untimely demise in 1986, as a gas leak
combined with a Bunsen burner from one unis experiments tore him and his
house to pieces. Being the timid and subservient type, between various
misadventures, Edd continued to follow the written orders unis parents long
after his death.
Kevin was the next to join the group. He was born to the day of Edd' s death and
is in many ways his polar opposite. Kevin came from a broken home and
developed a bold personality In life he was the cynical and angry and took it out
on many ofthe other children. His abusive father would rarely pay him any
attention in life and would end up bringing aboutthe end of t In a drunken
rage his father beat him after Kevin attempted to stand up to him. He died on the
way to the hospital in the winter of 1999. His Father spent the rest unis life in
prison. In the afterlife Kevin changed his perception to the opposite ehwhat his
life really was, with a distant father who would shower him with gifts, however
he continued to maintain his bullying even in death.
Jimmy was the last to come to the . He died in 2000 not long after
moving into the house that Kevin' s Father had once lived in. He had had leukemia
since he was barely old enough to walk. As such, he was always a very sickly
child and due to his over protective parents he never really got to be around
other children. He lived his days out in a small bedroom completely neglected by
the outside world. Jiminy lingered for quite some time in a state of near death,
but in the end finally caved into the suffering unis life long illness.
The Kanker sisters were different from any other denizens ofthe .
They were never ofthe earthly plane of existence. Instead they are the children
of demons not too dissimilar from the succubus inhuman lore. They seem to
possess abilities impossible by the standards ofthe others, such as the ability to
appear nearly anywhere instantly. They were sent from hell to torment the
already tortured souls ofthe neighborhood. Surprisingly they are attracted to
the Eds for unknown reasons, although it is speculated that they are the weakest
willed members ofthe neighborhood and are seen as easy targets by them.
Despite that they are universally loathed and often feared by everyone including
Thanks for reading guys, I' m sure you' re just as
freaked by this I am. Hope you found it interesting.
