Edd: “I think I bruised my coccyx!”

Ed: “No thanks are necessary!”


Ed, Edd, & Eddy's Boo Haw Haw is a treat, a Halloween themed episode to one of Cartoon Network's most hilarious TV shows.


It opens up with double D waiting outside the school for Eddy, who is serving detention after he filled the teacher's desk with processed cheese. To pass the time, Edd starts organizing leaves on the school steps. When Eddy comes out, he promises that he has a fool proof plan to make this the best Halloween of their lives. His brother, it seems, left him a map that leads them to a place called Spookyville, where the residents are said to hand out buckets and buckets of candy to every trick-or-treater that knocks on their door.

Before embarking on their adventure, they go and pick up Ed, who is in his basement bedroom watching horror movies in a trance like state. He has been watching so many horror shows for so long, that it ends up re-wiring what little brain he has, and he begins to see the other trick-or-treating kids in the neighborhood as monsters. Jimmy is dressed up as an alien, and Ed sees him as a grotesque alien from the planet Putridity. Girl next door Nazz dresses up as the monster Medusa, and that's exactly how Ed sees her.

Ed attacks every single monster he thinks he sees. Jimmy gets beaten with a stop sign (“Be gentle!” he shrieks before taking his lumps), while Nazz gets encased in cement. One of the funniest scenes in the episode comes when they encounter Johnny coming out of a tree. Although Ed sees him as a giant spider, he treats him with a degree of reverence, describing him as a “sadly misunderstood creature who longs for companionship and checkers!”

"Look at me, guys! I'm baby puke!"
"Look at me, guys! I'm baby puke!"

The animation in this episode is surprisingly beautiful, bathed in an eye-catching autumnal colors, and filled with memorable sequences that involve an abandoned hearse and bully jock Kevin chasing after our heroes trying to hit them with eggs (Ed sees him as the Headless Horseman trying to hit them with flaming pumpkins). The Eds eventually make it to Spookyville, although it turns out to that it isn't what it was cracked up to be. The final scene takes place in a hole Ed apparently dug in a split second, where Ed suffers from one final hallucination that had this reviewer in stitches.

What else can I say about a 22-minute episode? The series was rife with great episodes, and this was one of the better ones. I mean, how can you not smile when Double D goes trick-or-treating dressed up as the bubonic plague? Ed, Edd, & Eddy was one of my favorite shows as a teenager, and seeing it again today, it still has the power to elicit chuckles. The first two seasons have been released on DVD. What I want to know is why the heck all the other seasons haven't been released yet. This series is gold. Release them already!

What did you think of this episode? :)

      Love this show and the episode. Edd being the bubonic plague and everyone not knowing what he was. Ed thinking that everyone in the culdesac are real monsters. So funny. Great hub.
