What is the best thing Edd has done for his friends?
Besides forgiving them all the time? KIDDING
For some reason the first thing that popped into my head was Edd saving Eddy with the fake Principal announcement in ‘Smile for the Ed’.
But obviously that should be discounted since Edd lets Eddy cluelessly take the bullet for impersonating the principal.
Since I’m apparently unable to think of anything that was more than a small gesture or wasn’t immediately ruined by some other circumstance, I think there’s one moment where Edd legitimately impresses me the most.
When he marches up to lecture a grown adult in Big Picture Show.
A grown adult who has been rumored to kill people and/or animals and is currently beating up a child less than half his age.
An adult who clearly does not care about ALL THESE WITNESSES when he attacks children.
Even though Edd’s efforts themselves mostly fell flat, he still helped defeat Bro by inspiring everyone else to challenge Bro together. It truly is amazing enough that Edd managed to stand his ground, until being hammered into it. I think it says more about how much Edd loves being an Ed than even the quicksand scene does… though admittedly this probably happens BECAUSE the quicksand scene renewed Edd’s self-confidence so much.
