This is the season wherein I started faithfully watching the present (although the allude where i really began watching is approximately 3 illustration from now) and it is by much my favorite season of the show. The is the typical I hold all cartoons to. It is phenomenally funny, surprisingly confident (Kevin loses A many this season, and also the Eds usually gain neutral endings), and also goes over and beyond on character advancement in ways that were rarely matched again till the finish of the show. My analyses are probably going to take a more in-depth and critical turn in ~ this allude because i really want to figure out what makes season 3 tick.

You are watching: Ed edd n eddy wish you were ed

This season premiere is a PERFECT example of what’s in store for us. The takes Rolf, a minor personality who has pretty much specifically existed for gags thus far (though there were a couple of tiny exceptions critical season), and also gives him life and also depth, and additionally teaches united state a lot about the fictional nation he left behind. On height of that, the Eds room surprisingly quite throughout. The humor undercutting Rolf’s legacies are every benign and also full of love because that his weirdness, concentrating mainly on how the Eds’ culture shock clashes through their great intentions. Pretty much every one of Rolf’s finest material originates from this episode. It’s great. Let’s start.

\"*\"

The location = “Wish You to be Here” since Rolf desire he was home. Also, Eddy gives a scam that supposedly sponsor wishes. Really basic to remember.

A poisonous tongue slobbers almost everywhere a goat stamp, which hopefully reminds friend of Rolf’s goat, Victor! because that a title card that shows up to be collection in a void (with one stray faded line in the peak left corner), the postcard renders the totality thing seem how amazing pretty, with detailed fields and mountainscapes that space actually pretty comparable to the old nation we see in this illustration (and season 5). This image additionally bears part likeness come the cornfield paintings in ‘The Eds space Coming’.

Season 3 is greatly a season the single-storyboarder masterpieces; showcases that the strongest artists indigenous the ahead seasons providing it your all for a complete 11 minutes. There are most likely junior artists helping out and also I don’t understand yet precisely how countless episodes usage this format, yet today’s credit is provided only come James “Wootie” Wootton. He’s one of my favorite boarders. He’s responsible for everyone’s favourite episode, ‘An Ed Is Born’ (the house movie episode, later on this season), command a the majority of the finest digital era episodes, and many jewel from season 2: Fa La La La, Rent-a-Ed, respect Thy Ed, Rambling Ed (another huge Rolf episode), dear Ed…

…Wootie also gets the sole credit because that ‘Sorry not correct Ed’ next season. I select to believe he was required to attract it at gunpoint, however the allude remains that he is a yes, really talented artist. His art is that episode’s just redeeming aspect for me, haha.

\"*\"

Jimmy’s steering a cute small pedal car. Beginning right off v the an imaginative angles, Wootie? Nice.

\"*\"

I feel prefer every season has actually a distinctly various look to its colour (mostly simply that they get progressively much less faded until it ultimately just explodes into digital brightness) but the first two fifty percent hours of season 3 constantly looked way more prefer season 2 than the rest of season 3 come me. Has anyone else noticed it? The creating feels an extremely season 3, however the colors and backgrounds feeling distinctly older– like, look in ~ this weird silhouette ar that is likewise the grass!! WHERE room WE???

\"*\"

Anyway, Sarah seems to have hit a little rift through Jimmy since ‘Cry Ed’ finished season 2. She usually treats him like Ed and scolds him when he hits a bump. (The bang DOES sound prefer a cat, though.)

I love the pinwheel AC-system the is somehow controlled by a switch in this toy car. Perform you think that came through the toy or does Jimmy re-publishing Edd’s knack for invention?

Ooh, ns love the extra information in animating castle behind the glass. Wootie, friend so smart.

\"*\"

“IF friend DON’T favor IT, bump IT, MS. SARAH!”

I always feel prefer he sounds choose Nicky tiny from ‘Pepper Ann’ here.

\"*\"

I love once they acquire the characterization for this reason perfect that the illustrations turn out exceptional too. Also, I need to take the time to appreciate Sarah’s hair-blowing animation! Wootie provides this little but effective information again later on in the episode, because that an exceptional sequence wherein Rolf faints.

\"*\"

Jimmy teaches children the expression “road rage” when apologizing. Predictably, they’re going come crash now.

I choose the method Sarah’s mouth doesn’t constantly need skin beside it. Strangely renders it seem even bigger..

\"*\"

This Jimmy’s gained TOO plenty of angles

OH, friend might notification that, beginning with this season, the is much much easier for me to overload these analyses v screenshots. As well as me just loving this season’s animation, it’s mostly due to the fact that the Itunes execution of these periods were donated come the evaluation cause through my good friend! say thanks to you, friend, wherever you may be.

\"*\"

Jimmy swerves simply in time, leaving an amazing skid mark. (HEY, there to be a skid note in last season’s premiere, ‘Ready collection Ed’, too!! weird coincidence) us hear them crash off screen but that may simply be a sound style joke due to the fact that we don’t see any sign of that or hear your voices.

Jonny’s talk a scooter backwards, hoping to sign up with a demolition derby. This amazing mode of transportation returns when the youngsters return to college in ‘Out with the Old, In through the Ed’:

\"*\"
\"*\"

Kevin and also Nazz need to spin around to avoid crashing into Jonny. Pouty Kevin insults “Quirky”’s road-hogging and clever Nazz supplies “road-hog” together a setup to introduce Wilfred.

Has Nazz worn she roller blades prior to now? ns can’t remember.

Nazz’s headphones, while tho pretty outdated, always strike me together unusually modern-day for the series. Likewise they’re unnecessary, because Kevin’s lugging a boombox around. His boombox isn’t even playing music, though, is it being fed straight right into her headphones via antenna, and also he’s simply being she lackey?

\"*\"

Everyone pulls as much as witness Rolf’s “spicy” “hotshot” wagon. I guess the didn’t have that ‘Out through the Old..’ wagon yet, or Wilfred’s just faster than Victor.

Whoa, I simply realized the Nazz’s hair actually goes up in the back, to describe why we don’t watch it behind her head in prior views. Cuter than how I usually think the it!

\"*\"

Jonny, Nazz, and Jimmy every laugh prefer jerks. Kevin chokes out “I have actually HEARTBURN,” either to it is in obviously cruel or in an unexplained attempt to hide his mockery native Rolf. I can’t tell.

Kevin’s sleep is proper existent here.

\"*\"

Sarah’s still gift needlessly mean and also calls Rolf stupid.

LOOK AT that CUTE KEVIN. His hand are obtaining bigger but he’s still just a baby.

\"*\"

Rolf take away the insults in great stride, OR he may have not construed them at every (or he might be proud of his village idiot history, yet we don’t uncover that the end until later on in the season). ROLF difficulties THE kids TO A RACE.

\"*\"

Kevin accepts the race and also cool music begins! We are getting ever closer come the suggest where us get more scene-specific music indigenous Patric Caird, besides the character themes and also accenting that typically fill episodes.

This confront makes me uncomfortable, this is among those times where I really view what Eddy’s saying around Kevin looking choose a monkey.

\"*\"

Nice, this is background material. Ns love Jonny’s creepy small goggles for this reason much. Ooh, and also Nazz’s competitive challenge is interesting.

\"*\"

Greeeeat proportions! Love extreme Jimmy. Love little background Sarah, pretending come be appropriate to this race. Love the random mailbox in former of a large empty lot.

\"*\"

Nazz is feeling downright jolly now. Ns feel like they meant to draw angry eyebrows top top her.

\"*\"

That is a an excellent perspective illustration of Wilfred, love the curve indigenous his snout to his torso. The little tuft of grass coming the end of the street is a neat information too.

\"*\"

Someone had actually fun with the inking in this shot! look at at that Bro-chin Kevin.

HEY LOOK, A HOUSE! Whaddaya know?

\"*\"

Rolf set the finish line: “THE FERMENTED CANE OUTLET.” The youngsters are rightfully confused.

Beaklip Kevin is so weird…

\"*\"

Sketchy-lined eyelid, lazy-eye Rolf describes that he method the liquid store, which, just like every one of season 2 and most of the season 1, renders no figure in this episode however earns a few mentions.

Hey, doesn’t this background look choose the mysterious bus stop where they claimed bye to Jib?

\"*\"

WHOOOOA, it IS!? The specific same tree, the exact same orange puddle, the exact same bushes, houses, and cloud shapes… WHY’D THEY remove THE BUS STOP, THOUGH? walk the bus route obtain reworked between seasons 2 and 3? there is a much more canon bus avoid by the candy keep to be revealed in a couple of episodes, as well as one through the school/peach orchard in the movie. I guess this weird ar where the grass is also the homes didn’t need it?

\"*\"

The kids speed off, leaving Rolf as the apparent loser.

These are the type of doodley clouds we see a many in the digital era. It makes sense through the style, but I think the much more realistic impacts make a funnier fit because that the show.

\"*\"

First illustration of the old country!

BABY WILFRED!!!!!!!! PIGLET SIBLINGSSSS

WILFRED’S mommy FOR favourite CHARACTER 2015, an initial ON-SCREEN PARENT

We find out later this season and again in season 5 the Rolf thinks cameras stealing souls. I guess old human being black and white cameras are different somehow?

\"*\"

Wilfred breaks loose of the wagon, and Rolf skids ~ above his face over come the Eds. “HELLO ROLF” they speak in unison, prefer in ‘Rambling Ed’, a quote I’ve constantly loved the rate of. Oh how I miss having a friend named Ralph to greet through that ~ above the daily.

The Eds room comically revealed to have been a pair feet to the ideal of the children this entirety time, attempting to break Ed the end of a mailbox. This is mine all-time favorite development for them, and I love that they underplay the mystery of what this misadventure was. Beginning stories at the end of one madcap adventure is an AKA staple, together you may have noticed through the cheat in BPS.

Um, for this reason that residence (from a few shots ago) is just gone now. A chain link fence started next to the mailbox, apparently just to defend one next of the bush.

\"*\"

Flat-face Rolf i m so sad greets the Ed-boys. I’m not terribly offended by roadway rash slapstick, however I can’t assist but an alert how much less thorough this injury is for Rolf right here than Eddy landing on the street in ‘Take This Ed…’ next season.

\"*\"

Edd proposes the they can get Ed out with grease. Ed’s eyebrow is gone.

I evaluate wide-shots choose this even though I’m extremely frustrated by that house being changed by this north lot. Us don’t even know where this ar is, why does that seem favor there’s nothing on this street in ~ all? A completely informationless street.

\"*\"

“Hey Rolf, might ya preventive a cup o’ fat?”

Smooth.

\"*\"

hahahaha perfect timing on Ed’s released legs smacking Edd off-screen, and also I love the secondary an effect of the crowbar gift left behind come bounce around.

X-ears top top Ed

\"*\"

“…Rolf is heartbroken.”

I think Wootie was the emotional center of the standard episodes (Leah too), before Raven collection the heart back in location in the digital era. The season 5 episodes whereby Raven and Wootie work together room SERIOUSLY great, and I gain the impression they have actually a many the same sensibilities on characterization.

‘Dear Ed’ last season and ‘Wish You were Ed’ right now both discover genuine emotionally depth native minor characters. Comedy is garnered through the filter the the Eds’ absence of understanding, such together the crowbar bouncing with this line due to the fact that of the slapstick gag that simply passed by, however the depressed personality (Jonny in the former, Rolf now) is handled seriously. Your bodies can be tossed about like playthings so lengthy as that doesn’t crush your spirit.

\"*\"
\"*\"
\"*\"
\"*\"
\"*\"
\"*\"

\"*\"
\"*\"

Something season 3 is REALLY good at is inserting a quiet moment right into these hefty stories. The is funny in just how out of location it is in a display that world consider “loud,” yet this gag all at once cements the instance as real and heavy.

Rolf is depressed. The sighs and also gives a thousand-yard unieye stare. (..His hand overlaps his shoe but it’s not too noticeable, don’t worry about it.) The camera zooms out, the music lingers ~ above one last note and also fades into wind blowing. The first to pick up on Rolf’s despair is Ed. Eddy enters, initially looking annoyed by the silence, but gradually seeming more and an ext concerned the he doesn’t know what’s happening. He additionally hears a hawk/eagle? that may simply be one more sound style gag and also not in reality a thing that happens.

Rolf ultimately comes the end of it v “Rolf’s keister grow cold…” Eddy’s pose is comically end the top, yet his expression reads as either serious empathy, or at the very least a will certainly to be empathetic as soon as he much better understands Rolf’s situation. Even Eddy’s undercutting reply, “Rolf’s WHAT?” is practically whispered, going against what you’d suppose from Eddy’s character and connecting fine to the emotional subtext. Eddy is being shown with depth here, one more detail that season 3 is really good about most of the time. He’s been placed through a most trauma by season 2 already, and a lot an ext trauma is top top the way, but there room still these incredibly crucial reminders that the great person Eddy started as in season 1 and still yearns come be accepted as. Viewers that don’t understand Eddy are missing out on therefore MUCH. I can talk about his ethereal evolutions forever. It’s SCARY to me that civilization miss this stuff, due to the fact that it’s really vital to the series and since there are real human being out there v Eddy’s personality, constantly emotion misinterpreted.

\"*\"

Look at exactly how Eddy INSTANTLY mirrors Rolf’s alarm! His little brother personality feeds into every little thing he does. Eddy can’t relate come Rolf’s maturation dilemma, however Eddy understands the there’s some type of urgency come this and also wants to feeling it too. During these better parts of his life in the an initial 3 seasons, you can see a lot of Eddy’s humanity come the end in tiny neutral moments prefer this. Seasons 4-5 placed Eddy into a place of consistent distress and mistrust through his surroundings, and as admittedly flanderized as the personality that adopts is, that is still a pretty obvious mirroring of exactly how Eddy think the human being feels around him.

\"*\"

“THIS TWISTED steel OF INDUSTRY!”

This is among my favourite backgrounds in the whole show. There are a the majority of nice sketchy grime details, the paint’s perfectly sloppy, the colors complement Rolf’s attitude, and that cracked pavement really ties it all together. It’s still really weird how much of this mysterious street is just fences roughly bushes and trees, but I to be under the impression that Peach Creek has been gradually mowing under its woods come build much more developments prefer the Eds’ “Peach Creek Estates.” the “desert” in BPS is what in this direction and it looks more like cleared land than a desert come me.

I love the gross pollution cloud in the sky, and also how it argues the strength towers (that go across the Jawbreaker Factory/desert town and Lemon Brook) are having an ill result on the Eds’ neighborhood. Earlier when “SAVE THE ENVIRONMENT” didn’t seem choose the many overdone and also overly preachy premise, i was kinda hope an ultimate EEnE movie would explore this element of the show’s setting. BPS walk eventually check the factory and the boundaries of the power towers, however they’re not as appropriate to the plot together I’d like.

\"*\"

“THESE CONFUSING recreation DELIGHTS!”

awww yesssss, i deserve to taste this outside-the-lines painting mmmmmmmm

\"*\"

So the playground is within see of this secret street. I assume it’s somewhere follow me those woods in the bottom right corner of this season 1 map, v the sometimes-bus-stop area being component of the neighborhood throughout from the 2 cul-de-sacs.

\"*\"

“AND her ILL-AT-EASE CUSTOMS!”

Hilarious shot of Ed grinning while stuck in the mailbox, perfect justifying Rolf’s feeling of displacement and making the Eds it seems to be ~ equally foreign to Rolf. Punctuated EXTRA-perfectly by Ed coughing the end an envelope and then relaxing back into his fully comfortable grin.

\"*\"

Some solid Edd poses together he and Eddy react with expertise to Rolf’s frustration. An excellent boys. …I guess Edd walked ago over if Rolf was directing the camera around?

\"*\"

There room a many of good Rolf present here, but you obtain it, that misses the old country. Ns love this elephant locket he’s apparently been wearing approximately his neck the whole show. Ns wonder if his nation actually has actually elephants or if it’s simply an aesthetic.

Rolf’s country makes me think that some type of amalgam the India, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, Germany, and also Norway. Did I miss any?

\"*\"

Wilfred is the only pet confirmed to have come indigenous the old country, ns guess. Well, besides Fluffy and the other season 5 sheep. Rolf wears lederhosen, which I read are/were typical of countries along the Alpine mountain selection (I guess: v that’s what Rolf’s neighboring hills are, then?).

Second illustration of the old country! Pretty consistent with its reappearance in season 5’s ‘Every Which way but Ed’.

\"*\"

Looks favor they either relocated to a different part of the mountain between the photo and also this moment, or they redid their roof, paved a pathway and also planted a new bush. Or it’s simply a retcon because that vault appearance was a photo and also details could be spared!!!

Oh look, actually Victor and… Victor’s sibling to be there too! Good, I’m happy the family stuck together. And, hey, both of these episodes were directed by Wootie! guess he should love Rolf’s country.

\"*\"

Crying Rolf ):

Angus Bungay is going strong with the inking! *wolf whistles* that elephant locket look at FANTASTIC.

\"*\"

Edd make the efforts to patience Rolf down yet Rolf reiterates the his love is broken. Awwww, the pain…

\"*\"

Apparently Wilfred came earlier around the very same time together Edd. That decides to take it a turn in Rolf’s wagon and hops in together Rolf leaves. Cute.

Eddy regrets letting Rolf death the mood, yet listens come Edd’s sorry explanation. Generally good boys.

\"*\"

This Wallace and Gromit mouth hardly seems essential for the casual conversation they’re having, but ok.

\"*\"

Ed teleports out of the mailbox to tell Eddy that Rolf is homesick.

Eddy is too busy gift rightfully terrified, “WHERE DID girlfriend COME FROM?” “Blame mine parents, Eddy.” great subtle adult humor. Ed’s gotta know an ext about sex than he to be letting top top in ‘I am Curious Ed’. The “sextant” scene in BPS agrees.

\"*\"

There’s SO lot nothing top top this street, WTF

\"*\"

Eddy proposes a transatlantic flight scam! ns can’t tell exactly how serious Eddy’s being, but I guess his heart’s in the best place.

H…Hello, Ed…

\"*\"

Eddy’s smooth talking and detailed gesturing suggests he’s serious around the trip idea. Ed volunteers to paris the plane– now THERE’S an episode idea! ..Well, us sorta gain that in season 5’s ‘Cool Hand Ed’ (which is a good episode).

\"*\"

Edd pipeline to “salvage what’s left the this plot.” Harsh. But Eddy’s cool with it as lengthy as he gets credit.

ABRUPT reduced TO THE next SCENE since WE DON’T acquired TIME come WASTE ~ above A DISSOLVE.

\"*\"

Sad-shoes Rolf starts clean a beet. I’ve always appreciated the continuity v his love for candied beets native season 1’s ‘Oath to An Ed’:

\"*\"
\"*\"

The beet-scrubbing sound proceeds after Rolf elevator his brush, and also so begins one more dialogue-free adventure!

\"*\"

Season 3 loves silence.

\"*\"

Whoa, Rolf is weirder with big eyes than I would’ve thought….

SO plenty of BEETS

Another an excellent angle top top this background, plus much more paint external the lines. What are those poles beside the shed for? Those aren’t commonly there and also they look prefer they were drawn by prop designers, rather of as component of the background…

\"*\"

Poochie/Beatrice makes it into the episode! The Eds have finally learned exactly how to milk her because ‘Tag Yer Ed’. And look, they provided the Canadian Squirt guns (turkey basters) indigenous ‘Know It all Ed’! Season 3 loves callbacks.

\"*\"

Rolf pops increase behind the cow means faster than renders sense, yet I’m pretty sure it’s intentional. Rolf animates so well in this episode! i wish Wootie had actually been roughly for BPS, he’s obtained such a great cinematic sense to his directing and also plotting.

\"*\"

More stylish directing: the camera suspect Rolf’s POV as he peers end the fence into the lane. The foreground fence/hose relocate down at a much much faster rate 보다 the lift Eds, briefly developing a 3D illusion.

Rolf catches the Eds openly stating that these Chunky Puffs (another callback, pertained to think that it) are tennis balls because that the particular purpose that fooling him, but Rolf doesn’t seem to care/understand.

I love that one tennis round bops Ed ~ above the head (for fun). Wootie, and this display in general, is good at adding quick next gags between lines.

\"*\"

Eddy realizes Rolf’s listening and also tells Ed to start the show. Look at Eddy’s small mouth, haha.

Another well-placed personality beat, Ed gnawing a tennis ball prefer a dog.

\"*\"

Eddy is together obnoxious as feasible with presenting this wishing scam.

\"*\"

This happens so fast and also the pain effects are for this reason TEENY hahaha

\"*\"

“I WISH ns WISH ns WAS A FISH!” A couple of episodes from now, you WILL become a fish Ed!

\"*\"

Apparently Rolf ignored the Eds’ scam-talk since he was thinking about how impossible it is because that the Eds’ kitchenware to it is in so much bigger than Papa’s nasal wart. Rolf’s dad must have actually one large wart….

\"*\"

For absolutely no reason, Ed responds to Rolf’s curiosity v “YOU CAN’T capture ME” and then disappears right into the milk. The timing is hilarious. Just how would you also guess together a complete nonsequitur would fit so perfectly in the center of Eddy and Rolf’s plot-pushing conversation as soon as you’re simply writing or storyboarding this? in ~ what suggest in story advancement does Ed get included to this proceedings?

\"*\"

Edd caps off Eddy’s wishing explanation through a painfully deadpan “Hard come believe. Isn’t it, Rolf?” This provided to be provided in a CN bumper that compiled miscellaneous clips the the Eds speak “Rolf.”

The characterization has come to be so rich, and also the poses space so much an ext specific 보다 they used to it is in in season 1! What a happiness it’s been to watch the whole crew prosper up for this reason fast.

…Wasn’t this Edd’s idea, though? in ~ what allude did he start to hate this plan?

\"*\"

Rolf mulls end the Eds’ story. Something about that mouth is feeling an extremely Jonny to me.

\"*\"

Ah, there’s the Rolf us know. Doesn’t look prefer he’s to buy it…

I an alert bushy eyebrows prefer this a lot in the digital era, an especially on Ed.

\"*\"

Eddy senses Rolf’s suspicions and crosses his fingers. More subtle Eddy dimensions, he deserve to lose confidence simply as easily as he can fake it.

\"*\"

Rolf’s homesickness gets the much better of him. Even Eddy can’t believe Rolf fell for this.

\"*\"

doesn’t this Eddy look at super season 1?

\"*\"
\"*\"

haha, don’t feel like I ever noticed this fast shot that Ed feather sneaky (because girlfriend CAN’T record HIM) prior to Eddy grabs his foot.

\"*\"

Apparently the Eds didn’t think this with to what the miracle object would certainly be, for this reason Eddy picks Ed’s shoe. Wonder if it’s the exact same shoe that Ed loses in the movie? no that that matters, it’d just be cute.

I love exactly how the Eds’ clothes look when wet. Exactly how do brief sleeves get so LONG?

\"*\"

Aww yeah, look at those nice cel computer animation smoke effects. They’re may be to achieve a similar digital impact with the green heavy steam from Rolf’s home in ‘The Eds are Coming’, however nothing deserve to compare to exactly how strangely natural this looks.

Rolf believes that is the stench that destiny. He’s just willing come go v anything ideal now, isn’t he?

\"*\"

Eddy dramatically proceeds to define the shoe while explaining nothing. Rolf asks if it could “take pity” on him as well. I wonder if “take pity” reflects his views of wishes in general, or just his very own state of desperation.

\"*\"

“YES!”

\"*\"

“May Rolf speak to the shoe???” I just realized how similar this is come the money tree Rolf scams Eddy through in ‘Here’s dirt In your Ed’ next season. Cleverrrr…

\"*\"

“Noooooo…” Gotta love an obvious low-dialogue gag favor this.

\"*\"

“NO!?”

\"*\"

“Yesss…”

\"*\"

“Nooo….” Eddy’s having fun.

Ooh, look at at the chunky season 1-esque inking!

\"*\"

“YES! Rolf to know what renders Ed-boy tick.”

\"*\"

“No?”

\"*\"

“YES!!”

\"*\"

“Rolf’s legs WOOBLE v weakness!” Seriously, there room a lot of good Rolf present in this episode.

The Eds make A DOLLAR turn off of this really SCAM and also Rolf never ever takes the soldier back. EDS WIN!!! HAPPY SEASON 3, EVERYBODY! OFF-SCREEN JAWBREAKERS because that ALL. THE END.

oh, right, this story is around rolf

\"*\"

Rolf asks for a manual. God, this poses room good!!!

\"*\"

HELLO EDDY.

Eddy improvises again, informing Rolf to take a huge whiff, and borrowing Rolf’s “stench that destiny” phrase.

\"*\"

Oooh, ns LOVE as soon as cartoon pupils walk over the eyeball outline.

Edd: “HE DOESN’T need to SMELL THE–” Again, the character beats room all inserted perfectly, bravo.

\"*\"

MORE tiny MOUTH. Hahaha both that their faces are great.

\"*\"

There is a beautiful theatrical high quality to this entirety sequence. That propels the season 2 quality computer animation to distinctly season 3 levels of direction.

\"*\"

NICE ANGLE.

I obtain really distracted by the paris in this show. They relocate like genuine flies, not like a straightforward loop. It provides me wonder if they to be storyboarded at every or if the animators just obtain to come up v these trip patterns on their own.

\"*\"

More cool music, this time really dramatic and old world-y.

Everything about this Rolf challenge is offering me Rafiki vibes.

\"*\"

How odd to see Eddy actually contain himself!

Edd’s predictably barfy.

Ed appears pouty around Rolf inhaling his shoe.

\"*\"

Rolf finally begins to pass out from the stench and also spins approximately on his heels. It’s a funny sufficient visual, particularly with that lengthy Brothers Gruntish mouth, yet the direction pushes it past comedy and into drama. This is normal in EEnE. This is SERIOUS and also EMOTIONAL. And yet it doesn’t feeling forced! all at once it feeling funny and intense, and that is the strength of EEnE’s handling of animation.

\"*\"

In another brilliant theatrical decision, the camera begins flipping v multiple shots the Rolf spinning at a dizzying pace. Adding to the effect are multiple continuity disturbances (in part shots, Rolf has an ‘O’ mouth, in others his mouth is closed; Rolf’s hair is means more detailed and also flowing in close-ups; Rolf’s eyes readjust expression) and an eery overlay the Rolf’s previously lines, consisting of “ROLF SWEATS himself TO understand YOUR modern-day GO-GO WORLD!” It’s an amazing, vaguely trippy sequence.

That eery voice-overlay idea to be going come be used a little differently in a deleted section of Jonny’s psychotic malfunction on the bus in BPS, v Jonny hearing conversation from the Eds’ following scene (when they’re drowned in the swamp), dialogue he wouldn’t even hear. It’s a creepy an approach that ns really love and wish could’ve make it right into the final movie.

\"*\"
\"*\"

Rolf’s cool spinning animation combines through a ethereal 2D panning background and a shadow to create the effects of 3D camera movement. Really impressive.

\"*\"

Rolf lands with the absolute finest hair animation, ending the scene v the audience extensively impressed. You virtually feel MAD the the other personalities don’t have actually as much hair together Rolf since this is the form of stuff they can do. The is a yes, really ingenious idea to prolong the audience’s love because that Rolf right into his design! It makes this episode feel even an ext like a Rolf special because of how thorough it is.

\"*\"

We fade out and also I never noticed prior to that the echoing past-dialogue stops gift Rolf at the end– that switches come Eddy repeating “destiny, destiny, destiny…” That’s cuuuute.

\"*\"

Rolf wakes up still on the roadway dirt.

\"*\"

But in the following shot he’s laying on the building site’s cul-de-sac?

That boy continuity error aside, ns think this is the show’s most an imaginative use that the building and construction site through far. The is the perfect area to ar this type of “fake village” scam and also whoever at AKA realized that deserves an ext credit 보다 they got.

The Eds decorated the skeleton houses with fake buildings, and also put a birdhouse on some sort of locker. Those roofs on the buildings in the right corner make me think that India, yet I can’t mental if that’s actually where they’re native (my memory for something not-specifically-EEnE is terrible). The fine looks choose it was made from a pipe the was already sticking the end in the facility of the construction site– what purpose would the pipe serve? The Eds seem to have actually swiped some barrels, sausages, and animal slop indigenous Rolf’s for some extra authenticity, and also left few of the construction site’s rock-bearing wheelbarrows and also dirt piles roughly for texture. The Eds also took note of the hills in Rolf’s photo, that’s nice!

\"*\"

The Eds grabbed Rolf’s pile of cleaned beets!

That background doesn’t it seems ~ to enhance with the other stuff the Eds have set up. Many of your backdrops look choose an appropriate amalgam the Europe and also Asia, yet this tropic island drawing seems the end of place…

BTW, perform these international backgrounds remind anyone rather of critical season’s premiere?

\"*\"
\"*\"

HOLY CRAP, THEY are FROM last SEASON’S PREMIERE. SO plenty of CALLBACKS.

\"*\"

I wonder if the Eds researched the native they created on the “KLAT” sign… Google interpret says that way “blob” or “blot” in Danish?

I like that fish stand a lot, an especially the chainsaw fish.

\"*\"

That fence ~ above the ideal doesn’t usually exist, however if those woods result in the playground then this should greatly be specific to the map.

Also another reused backdrop:

\"*\"
\"*\"

I definitely remember seeing this a many in CN’s Rolf bumpers. It take it me so lengthy to realize just how WEIRD this gigantic beetle is. Many of the bugs were in season 1 but no other pest in the whole collection is humongous like this… where did the Eds discover it? go it simply live in the pipe by coincidence? (why couldn’t it have actually been my beloved season 1 horned beetle??)

Anyway, the infested waters to convince Rolf that he’s home. How… unfortunate.

\"*\"

I love just how each “world” has actually its very own separate patch of color.

Is this is the an initial canonization the the season 1 map in the whole show? i think many of the overhead shots have been secluded areas– simply the cul-de-sac, or the area around the trailer park.

They really put a many of initiative into corresponding the previously map, even the parts that don’t make feeling with this episode (the lane’s second fence has actually been greatly featured therefore far) / at all logically (why doesn’t Ed’s backyard require a earlier fence?).

Sorry to article this map again, but look, lock redrew it! look at at exactly how you deserve to see more of the ideal side that the map now. That’s nice. According to this, the construction site only has actually 4 houses. That makes sense through how small space it actually has, however later episodes do a habit that scattering limitless skeleton houses around its dirt lot.

\"*\"
\"*\"

Aw, so proud. Evaluate from Eddy’s blank stare and Edd’s smugness, this to be the part Edd come up with.

\"*\"

Edd’s “Encyclopedia that Old people Cultures” reportedly had sufficient information to to convince Rolf without the Eds in reality learning around his country? Or carry out they understand his country’s name and also just not talk around it?

The method this book serves as the backbone that the premise seems surprisingly favor season 5.

“S.S. Ed,” DON’T provide YOURSELVES AWAY, GUYS.

\"*\"
\"*\"

Eddy and also Ed run in the opposite directions for jawbreakers and Edd it s okay to be the source of a surreal gag as he bring away both that them. Ed is actually closer to to run in the really direction the the candy store, however I prefer the way the staging the this gag points out the different problems Ed and also Eddy need to overcome to protect against this scam from misfiring– Eddy has to commit to gift selfless and Ed needs to avoid clumsily interrupting Rolf’s fantasy prefer this. The crest are higher just because of how personal this undertaking is! This feels prefer a new kind the EEnE story.

“The Eds hiding out in among the skeleton houses” is another thing that makes this episode’s usage of the building and construction site setting stand out. That is surprisingly rarely for the Eds to connect with their environment like this.

\"*\"

I’m glad we get to see this monster tiny-eye illustration closer up, haha. Together I always allude out, this is slapstick done well. It counts on timing and also absurdity, and also replaces detailed injuries v hilariously strange faces.

\"*\"

“Where was ns going?” and it’s never ever the wrong time for a “disconnected Ed” gag. These illustrations are all at the same time sloppy and also strong, ns love ‘em. Ed’s arm isn’t attached come his body, and also yet the wonkiness feel in business of the joke.

\"*\"

Luckily for Edd, Rolf gives Eddy a an ext in-character opportunity to help. Rolf wants to acquisition this “fine, fresh eel” the is clearly a sock.

\"*\"

Rolf sniffs the eel, having actually apparently gained a fondness because that Ed’s foot odor. What a quite lively drawing!

\"*\"

I constantly think Eddy’s consisting of some sort of language here, “A-VALLON MEEEALS come YA, VILLAGER!” but after city hall this clip favor 50 time it finally dawned ~ above me the Eddy’s questioning “Eyeballin’ me eels, are ya, villager?”

That is a weird-ass Rolf, haha, yet I love this Eddy costume. Space those sideburns do of seaweed?? I must remember to attract all the old-world personalities the Eds came up with, they’re interesting.

\"*\"

Eddy automatically realizes the may have bitten off an ext than he deserve to chew– just how is he supposed to understand all the mannerisms of Rolf’s people?

\"*\"

Somebody requirements to cosplay together Eddy’s Fish Monger character, i love his shirt.

Eddy blatantly goes and asks Edd for an explanation– Edd finds the this is a bartering pole.

\"*\"

Edd and his book are a little unnecessary here, because background-Rolf has already made it clear that you need to barter if balancing her stomach ~ above the pole (although audiences periodically prefer to have things spelled out for them). Wootie wisely uses this expositional scene for a cute background-Ed gag the doubles together a beneficial explanation for where Eddy gained this suddenly costume.

I can’t watch this dress-up box and not imagine the baby Eds playing in it. Have the right to YOU??? (You cannot.)

\"*\"

A cute/smug Edd turn off the dusty book, adding a great of intuitive comedy come his dialogue to provide it an extra punch. Eddy concurrently relaxes into his very own cute pose.

At this point, I’d choose to take a brief an individual detour. Feel complimentary to disregard it.

I have learned a LOT around animation and storyboarding just from evaluating EEnE season 2 (and ns should most likely go earlier over season 1 now that I much better understand the work-related behind it). Season 3 is my favourite season and I’m yes, really excited to finally be taught by the A+ material. If you’re choose me and can’t bought a true animation education but are dying for one, that is AMAZING how much you deserve to learn for free by pausing every other second of your favorite animations and thinking about what went through the artists’ heads and also how it must have actually looked at various stages that production. It goes past studying methods too, you’ll learn a lot about the human being who made these simply by studying what castle draw, what principles they return to, what tones they prefer, etc. I highly encourage conducting your own analyses!

\"*\"

“THAT’S STUPID.” Perfect punctuation come Edd’s lesson and my an individual moment, haha.

HEY, this is a heat that’s recycle a lot in the collection but I’ve never been able to pinpoint as soon as it was first said! One re-use ns remember is in the movie, when Edd’s explaining fireflies come Eddy. Greatly I started noticing it because of Youtube Poops, though.

\"*\"

Edd ultimately gets to play Eddy’s wife, just like Eddy want in season 1’s ‘Dawn the the Eds’.

I photo Rolf’s mommy looking vaguely choose this Edd disguise (but with bigger feet and much more body hair, that course).

\"*\"

Gross. Poor Edd. Bad Rolf?

From this allude on, i think male-on-male kisses end up being a staple of the show. Have there to be others before this one the I’m forgetting?

\"*\"

Eddy’s entertained!

(hahaha, i imagine this guilty chuckle was Danny’s reaction come every obvious gay joke in the show)

\"*\"

Edd keeps his tongue out all barfy, juuuust like after the make-out he has actually with Eddy next season.

Edd’s able to reclaim composure quickly, though, and also offers Rolf the eels for 3 oranges. Rolf would fairly offer 2 chickens.

\"*\"

Eddy is mad around the chickens (but not the oranges? guess it’s just his bird fear), however Ed takes his cue and also demands chickens.

\"*\"

Edd tries come accept two chickens however Rolf is perplexed that Edd doesn’t want 4 chickens. The camera switches to this much more dynamic angle, as stress and anxiety builds in your abdomens. Edd make the efforts to accept the 4 chickens, however Rolf currently insists that he said two chickens.

\"*\"

Edd make the efforts to keep his wits around him in a close-up, lowering his sell to 3 chickens and a rubber band, but Rolf won’t ago down native 2 chickens. We cut earlier to the initial shot, where Edd confesses “MY ABDOMEN IS death ME” and also finally concedes to the initial two chickens.

\"*\"

Eddy protests anything but cash, however Ed accepts the chickens. Don’t worry Eddy, I’m sure they’re worth more than a quarter. One dollar and two chicken is a damn great profit for you guys.

…Did the Eds carry Rolf’s pets or walk Rolf just lug chickens around in his pockets at all times? (that’s a rhetorical question– in the season 3 finale, Edd confirms the Rolf DOES bring at least one chicken in his pocket at every times)

\"*\"

Cool angle, Rolf reminds united state that this a triumphant emotionally story for him.

“Fruz” is supposedly “fruit” in French?? “Fruit blob”??? Doesn’t really make sense to use two words from two various languages however ok alright.

\"*\"

Precious.

\"*\"

Fade come later– Rolf digs a pit through cement and also Eddy come in through the rock wheelbarrow, dressed together both George Washington and a Scotsman. Great thing he’s through the Loch Ness Monster or THIS MIGHT’VE to be WEEEIRD.

\"*\"

Rolf and Eddy get along famously end this hole. Cute. Is… hole-digging the nationwide pastime that Rolf’s country?

\"*\"

A series of well-drawn Eddys describe the village’s hole-digging permits to Rolf. This sales key concludes with “or I’m gonna have to hit girlfriend with among these rocks,” which sounds favor a much better plan 보다 it should.

\"*\"

Rolf rambles off a ton of fake language in a little bit everyone loves. Eddy barely allows Rolf finish his critical faux-German sentence prior to blurting the end “what?”

\"*\"

Eddy looks for this reason worried the he’s simply blown this scam, haha.

I assumption: v the lane really isn’t going to have two fences anymore today? Kinda weird the the lane dirt has paled so much over the day however I’m the just one that would notification anyway.

\"*\"

Ed drops into the hole and the chickens try to to rise away.

“Your village idiot has fallen in Rolf’s ho-el. A CELEBRATION ns SAY!”

We learn later this season the Rolf originates from a long line of his village’s idiots. Ns guess the feels some kinship to Ed’s disguise, then? If I attract real version of this old human being characters, ns should think about making Ed look pertained to Rolf.
