List RulesVote up the Ed, Edd N Eddy fan theories that are messing with your childhood.

Ed, Edd n Eddy follows the animated, quirky adventures of three lovable, goofball anti-heroes who all happen to be named 'Ed.' As Cartoon Network's renegade portrayal of adolescent schemes, mishaps, and friendships, the show left a nostalgic mark in the hearts of many a '90s kid. It's also a completely psychedelic mindf*ck with humor that went well above the age range of its intended demographic. The weird things on Ed, Edd, n Eddy that made it endearing and attention-grabbing also made it a target for dark and twisted Cartoon Network fan theories.

Attempting to fill in the gaps that were never explained during the show, Ed, Edd, n Eddy fan theories piece together the secrets that the kids of the cul-de-sac keep in the shadows. Like what's up with all the parents being gone all the time? What's really hiding under Double D's hat? And why do all these kids have such deep-seated emotional issues? These are questions that fan theories about kids shows can only speculate and ponder the truth of, but still provide ample food for thought. Let's dive in!

    Eddy's Brother And Ed's Mom Hooked Up - And That's How Sarah Was Born

    Although Sarah and Ed are brother and sister, they look almost nothing alike. Sarah actually seems to have much more in common with Eddy than Ed, sharing the same thin lips with an overbite, the slouchy posture, and his snappy tendencies. This fan theory that suspects Eddy's older brother and Ed's mom had an affair would totally explain why Sarah looks and acts so much like Eddy.

    Plank Isn't Just A Piece Of Wood, It's A Chaotic Entity Of Its Own

    For being a literal plank of wood, Jonny 2x4's imaginary friend is suspiciously... sentient. This is probably because Plank is a supernatural entity of its own. While not necessarily evil, Plank is a special being with an intimate attachment to the universe who also harnesses a startling amount of completely unfathomable knowledge for an inanimate object. Plank also likes to stir the pot, upsetting the everyday balance of the cul-de-sac and sparking up a bit of fun-loving chaos with his deviant humor while he does.

    The Kanker Sisters Are Actually Demons Who Love To Terrorize And Wreak Havoc

    The Kanker Sisters are obviously very different from the cul-de-sac kids. For one, they're rude, crude, and overly attracted to Ed, Edd, and Eddy, but what's super weird about these girls is that they are the only ones on the show who have normal colored tongues.

    Why the extreme separation from the other characters? Because they're actually demons sent from Hell who take pleasure in preying on the weak-willed.

    Each Kid In Peach Creek Is An Embodiment Of One Of The Seven Deadly Sins

    This theory speculates that the character design for each kid in the cul-de-sac has been sculpted in the form of one of the seven deadly sins. Some perfect examples of this sinful sculpting can be seen in Eddy's greed for money and candy, Ed's sloth with his lazy nature and overeating, Jonny's envy for others over their friendships with real people, Kevin's prideful and flashy nature, Sarah's hot-headed wrath, the way everyone lusts over Nazz, and Rolf's gluttony for meat with his locker stash full of flesh.
