One of the posters from 1998.

Ed Edd n Eddy is a show about three kids that pull up scams on their neighborhood but then fail miserably. But there was a certain possible pilot from 1998,I can prove this might be true since the show was about to premiere in 1998 but was pushed back to make improvements. So the animation would’ve been a little bit more choppy like in the teasers/promos from 1998.

Development/Known Information

If you look closely,it says the copyright date is 1996.

Not much is known about this pilot,but it might’ve been similar to the first episode of the series. I can maybe prove this since maybe the original pilot was edited over to be the first episode,which is why it leaves a few animation errors in the final version,such as why Sarah is drawn weirdly. Also,I also discovered some Model Sheets,the show might’ve been in development since 1996. I can prove this with the model images I found with the “Color me Eddy”.
