"Fa-La-La-La-Ed" is the 25th episode of Season 2 and the 51st episode of Ed, Edd n Eddy. In this episode, Ed spreads holiday cheer at the height of summer after Christmas is mentioned to him. After a while, Eddy decides to get some cash from the kids by spreading the Christmas spirit around the Cul-de-Sac.


Ed and Eddy are creeping around the upstairs of Edd's house, which is unfortunate for Edd, as he and his friends are not allowed to play upstairs. When he hears a breaking sound, he heads for his parents' room and finds them each in one of the beds. Both treat Edd's discomfort as a joke, and when Edd tries to scold Eddy, he instead runs off and plays with a mirror. While Eddy is distracting Edd, Ed gets into the cabinets and pulls out a bunch of sticky notes that he immediately begins playing with. Chaos descends upon the room as Ed and Eddy mess around, with it only intensifying when Ed flies into the closet and finds some bubble wrap.

The direction of the discussion takes a different turn when Ed drops the thing the bubble wrap was wrapped around, however. When Edd defines it as being the Christmas fruitcake, Ed gets excited about Christmas and starts listing off the things he likes. Eddy is in no way excited about the holiday, however, as he always gets clothes, which Ed believes is due to Santa knowing he's been naughty. When he insults Santa, however, Ed clamps a hand over Eddy's mouth so that Santa won't hear, as Santa is making a list and checking it twice.

Suddenly, sleigh bells are heard, and the Eds go to the window. Outside are Jimmy and Sarah, both carrying piggy banks. Eddy is naturally interested in this activity, but when he asks where they're going, Sarah pretends she forgot in order to keep Eddy from following them. Jimmy doesn't catch on to this, however, and lets Eddy know that today is Piggy Bank Day. Angry, Sarah takes hold of her friend and tugs him down the sidewalk, but the damage has already been done, because Eddy is already scheming.

At Jimmy's house, a party is going on, complete with pig noses and pig-themed games, food, and decorations. Jimmy is having second thoughts about smashing his bank, however, as he feels guilty about the destruction. Sarah has no such compunctions, however, and she suggests that they smash it together. Jimmy readily agrees, and they are about to bring the mallet down when a gigantic pig comes down the street, piloted by Edd. Eddy leaps down and introduces the Piggy Bank Belly Pumper, which promises to extract the money without harming the piggy bank in any way. Jimmy is certainly up for this, and he pays Eddy. As the machine starts its work, Eddy begins to explain what will happen inside, but is soon distracted by Ed, who is pretending to be a Christmas elf and ignoring all attempts to explain to him that it’s July. While Ed is playing on top of the Belly Pumper, he looks inside and sees something suspicious. As a good little elf, he lifts away the side of the machine, revealing that Edd is about to smash the piggy bank with a hammer. The charade revealed, the already guilt-ridden Edd bursts into tears, while the other kids look at Eddy angrily. Eddy tries to act like it's all Edd's fault, but Ed reveals Eddy made their friend do this. Ed hands Jimmy his piggy bank back, and Rolf arrives with Wilfred, who has scented the odor of the Christmas sow. While Eddy protests that it's July, Rolf happily gives gifts to all of the kids, from Jonny to Nazz. Kevin gets into the spirit as well, and they all run off to celebrate the strange Christmas spirit that has befallen them, with Jimmy even pausing to offer Edd his piggy bank as a gift, but turns it down. Eddy tried to take the offer for him, only for Sarah to call him off.

Eddy is at first surprised by this turn of events, but soon enough he comes up with a way to make some cash off of it, and he and the other two Eds go from door to door singing Christmas carols that are alternately joyful and threatening, with each one mentioning cash in some way. After Eddy has collected his haul, he heads off to the candy store while Ed and Edd decorate a tree. When he comes back, he has with him an enormous bag of jawbreakers, and is preparing to share them with his friends when he notices it's been stolen by none other than Ed, the Christmas elf, who is still spreading cheer by giving all of the other kids Eddy's jawbreakers, leaving none for Eddy or Edd, but hey, that's how it always goes for them, even on a Christmas Day in July.

The Eds' Christmas Songs[]

  • Jingle Bells:
    "Jingle bells, jingle bells, giving joy all day.
    We made you laugh so give up your cash and cheer will come your way!"
  • Deck the Halls:
    "Deck the halls with bells of holly
    Fa la la la la la la la la
    Give us cash or we'll never stop singing
    Fa la la la la la la la la!"
  • We wish you a merry Christmas:
    "We wish you a merry Christmas
    We wish you a merry Christmas
    We wish you a merry Christmas
    So give us some cash!"


  • Goofs:
    • When Jimmy prepares to smash his piggy bank, Christmas lights can be seen on the house behind him. When the camera pans back to Jimmy, Ed can be seen adding lights to the house, even though they were already there moments earlier.
    • When Edd ponders Kevin's insult about the Piggy Bank Belly Pumper, Edd's socks are the same color as his skin. Several scenes later, when Edd is caught preparing to smash the piggy bank, this coloring error happens again.
    • When Kevin and Nazz tell Ed that it's better to give than to receive, Nazz's pig snout disappears.
    • Rolf is unfamiliar with western Christmas customs (namely gift giving) in Ed, Edd n Eddy's Jingle Jingle Jangle. In this episode, however, Rolf seems to be more familiar with the holiday.
    • Rolf gave away his shirt, pants, a shoe, and two other non-clothing related objects. He should therefore still be wearing his socks and only one shoe. Oddly, he has no clothes on except for his underwear.
    • When Ed gives Jimmy a jawbreaker, Ed shoves it through Jimmy's retainer straight into his mouth.
  • This episode, and the following one, premiered as part of the 2000 A Very Cartoon Cartoon Fridays Holiday Special.
  • This episode takes place in July, as Eddy points out what month it is. This is likely a reference to "Christmas in July"; a deliberately ironic theme celebrated yearly.
  • The Piggy Bank Belly Pumper reappears in the Junkyard in "Dueling Eds," albeit destroyed.
  • Early in the episode, Edd says, "My blood sugar seems a tad low." This may hint that Edd is diabetic or hypoglycemic.
  • When Eddy spins on Edd's parents' bedroom mirror, he yells, "Jane, stop this crazy thing!" This is the catchphrase of George Jetson from The Jetsons.
  • This is the first of two Christmas-themed episodes. The second Christmas-themed episode is Ed, Edd n Eddy's Jingle Jingle Jangle, which is the actual Christmas special.
  • The yo-yo Rolf gave to Jonny is likely the same one that Ed traded him in "Who, What, Where, Ed."
  • Edd states that the second floor of his house is off-limits. Oddly, Edd's room is on the second floor, and the Eds frequently play up there. It is possible Edd stated this in an attempt to stop Ed and Eddy from creating mischief.
  • Two references are made to characters in Charles Dickens' famous novel, A Christmas Carol:
  • Eddy expresses his disdain for Christmas, stating that all he ever gets are clothes. This was later depicted in Ed, Edd n Eddy's Jingle Jingle Jangle, when Eddy discovered his presents in the attic.
  • Wilfred squeals the tune of "O Tannenbaum" (also known as "O Christmas Tree").
