Here we go, the top cartoon in my top seven count down in old cartoons. This one is probably one of the funniest things I have ever seen as a kid and even watching old episodes today it still makes me laugh. So many of the jokes and one liners were really ahead of their time and even now still make you laugh.
As a quick note, some of the other cartoons that did not make the list but were loved were Rugrats, Hey Arnold, Doug, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and so many more. Now, let’s see who made the number one spot.
#1 Ed, Edd, and Eddy
HERE WE GO! Ed, Edd, and Eddy, a show that ran from 1999 to 2009 was one of the funniest things that ever appeared on Cartoon Network. This show followed the story of three guys, Ed, Edd, and Eddy that schemed their way throughout their never ending summer to get money, trick the neighborhood kids with their elaborate schemes, and get jawbreakers. Its a pretty simple theme, but each episode put the characters into new situations that were strange, funny, and always led to a ton of laughs.
There were so many elaborate episodes where the trio would get involved with more insane strategies to get money from the rest of the children on the Cul de Sac. Each episode so was so great and there were so many great characters that were involved aside from the three Eds. There was Jimmy, Nazz, Ralph, and so many others but the one liners were just amazing and ahead of their time. For example in the 9th episode of season 2, Eddy tells Ralph “The crow caws at midnight” as he tries to sneak into a party. Ralph, an odd character from some old country that is never noted, responds “yes and the cat sours the basil, Ralph would love to talk politics but he must see your invitation.” It’s random, funny, and fits the show so well.
So there it is, number one on my list. There are so many great old cartoons that is nearly impossible to get them all on a list, but this is how I rank my top 7. The next list will be more anime style so get ready for that.
