The fourth season of the Canadian-American animated comedy television series Ed, Edd n Eddy, created by Danny Antonucci, originally aired on Cartoon Network from September 27, 2002, to November 5, 2004, and consists of 13 episodes. The series revolves around three adolescent boys collectively known as "the Eds", who live in a suburban cul-de-sac. Unofficially led by Eddy, the Eds constantly scheme to make money off their peers in order to purchase their favorite confectionery, jawbreakers. However, their plans usually fail, leaving them in various predicaments. The fourth season was originally set to be the last of the series, but two more seasons as well as three holiday-themed specials were ordered as a result of the series' popularity. The Complete 4th Season DVD was also exclusively released in Thailand.
Development[edit | edit source]
Two additional seasons of Ed, Edd n Eddy were ordered in 2000. The voice cast remained the same as in season three, featuring Matt Hill, Samuel Vincent, and Tony Sampson as Ed, Double Dee, and Eddy, David Paul Grove as Jonny 2x4, Keenan Christenson as Jimmy, Janyse Jaud as Sarah and Lee Kanker, Kathleen Barr as Kevin and Marie, Peter Kelamis as Rolf, and Erin Fitzgerald as Nazz and May Kanker. In 2004, Patric Caird was nominated for the Leo Award for Best Musical Score of an Animation Program or Series, for his work on the episode "Ed in a Halfshell". Caird won in the same Leo Award category in 2005 for his work on the season. In the same year, the season was nominated for Favorite Cartoon at the Kids' Choice Awards. This was the last major animated TV series to use traditional cel animation. In 2004, when the show was renewed for two new seasons, the animators switched over to digital ink-and-paint.
In August 2002, the New York Museum of Television and Radio featured the episode "An Ed Is Born" as part of the special program "Cartoon Power! Celebrating Cartoon Network's 10th Birthday". At the July 2007 San Diego Comic-Con, a cut segment from the season finale "Take This Ed and Shove It" was screened at the Ed, Edd n Eddy panel. The season was written by Antonucci, Jono Howard, Mike Kubat, Geoff Berner and Brent Miller (who only co-wrote "One Size Fits Ed").
