"Hot Buttered Ed" is the 23rd episode of Season 2 and the 49th episode of Ed, Edd n Eddy. In this episode, the Eds go to the beach, but find out that their spot on the beach has been taken by Kevin. The Eds must now find a way to get Kevin out of their spot, so they can relax.
The Eds are camping out in Ed's backyard for the night, but end up annoying the neighbors by fighting over food, spilling potato chips in each other's sleeping bags, performing shadow puppetry, and making loud and obnoxious noises.
The Eds' nighttime fun goes on for most of the night, and they end up oversleeping late into next morning. As a result, they are beaten to their covered shady spot at the Swimming Hole by Kevin. The Eds have to deal with flies, beach trash, and most of all for Edd, the lack of sunscreen. Eddy is willing to do anything to get their favorite spot back. Therefore, the Eds advance though the area, attempting to take Sarah's place, which instead results in further humiliation. Afterwards, they realize that their next and best option would be to take Jonny's spot atop a large stack of boulders to keep an eye on Kevin's spot.
While advancing up the boulder, Eddy goes through several ideas on how to remove Jonny, but desperate Edd, who has been suffering through the lack of proper protection from the sun, comes in with his own idea and successfully makes Jonny leave the spot. The day passes as the Eds wait for Kevin, and finally when evening arrives, the kids pack up to go back home. The Eds find themselves to be severely sunburnt, though their spot is free. Ed's overactive imagination only exacerbates their situation, as they now have to suffer through Ed's poking and prodding at their sunburnt bodies.
Edd: [mortified that a shower of potato chips is descending onto his sleeping bag] "Oh, look at this now! Dried potatoes, that may contain dextrose salt and saturated fats all over my sleeping bag!" Eddy: [snickers] "Double D made a mess in his sleeping bag, Ed!" Ed: [laughs] "Hey! Let's bake a pie and hit me with it!"
Eddy: [shining his flashlight behind Ed's head] "Doctor, I think we need to operate." [giggles] Edd: "Oh, I concur, Doctor Eddy." [giggles] Eddy: "Hold still, Lumpy!" [Eddy pinches Ed's shadow head] "Boink! Boink!" Ed: "I feel it, Eddy. Like voodoo." Eddy: [pinches Ed's shadow head again] "Boink!" [Edd and Eddy laugh] Edd: "May I try?" Eddy: "Sure, why not?" Edd: [flexing his fingers] "Did you know shadow puppetry is one of the oldest forms of entertainment?" [makes a shadow puppet of a dinosaur skeleton] Ed: "Like walnuts?" [trying to make a shadow puppet shape] "Ooh! Can you guess what it is?" Eddy: [sarcastically] "Hmm. Gee, Ed. Is it a… hand?" Ed: [fingers wiggling frantically] "Oh, oh! Wait! Wait! Uh... I think it's broken, guys." Eddy: "What a lump." Edd: [giggling] "Well, at least he's consistent." [Edd and Eddy laugh] Jimmy: "Excuse me! Do you mind toning it down out there? Some of us are trying to sleep." Edd: "Shh… we're disturbing our neighbors, Eddy." Eddy: "Oh, are we?" [makes armpit noises with his hand under his armpit]
Edd: [on being told he's slept in] "Oh dear, I've never slept in! I've blemished my personal resume!"
Edd: [on being hassled by Eddy to hurry to the swimming hole] "But I haven't brushed my teeth, or had my crumpet or-" [Ed, who is wearing the tent, suddenly crashes into him] Ed: "Here, Spot! Come on, boy!" [He whistles.]
Ed: [complete with 2 large leaves as a reptilian neck ruff and a stick for a tail] "Oink, oink, oink…I am a lizard!"
Edd: [eying Kevin in his shady spot] "But Eddy, look at him, he looks so comfortable." Eddy: "Let's put a stamp on his head and mail him to Hollywood." Edd: "Too inhumane, Eddy."
Edd: "Look! It's an eclipse of the sun!" Ed: "That's Jonny's head, Double D." Eddy: "What's he doing up there? Hey! Check it out! If we had Jonny's spot, we could keep an eye on my spot." Edd: "At that elevation, it must have a cooling cross-breeze, perhaps even shade." Eddy: "It's a cinch. We just have to get rid of Jonny." [Ed farts in the water and smiles as bubbles come out of his shorts. Edd and Eddy glare at him.]
Eddy: [musing as he rides uphill on the camel-style Ed] "Let's see, what do we use to get melon-head off his perch? Explosives? Nah … a giant slingshot? … nope… a trapeze? Double D, that's it! We'll use a trapeze! He'll never know what hit him! [Edd cringes as his hand touches the burning rock] We'll lower some rope - Ed, you can wear the tights." Edd[struggling in the unbearable heat]: "Aah!" Ed: "A bar mitzvah!" Edd: "A trapeze? Please. Here's an idea, Eddy. Next time, let's just sit in an oven!" Eddy: "Why don't you do something useful? LIKE HURRY UP!" [Edd growls.]
Edd: [after becoming sunburnt] "Yowch! Don't touch me! Ow! My face!" [after touching his own burned face] "Every nerve ending in the primary layer of my skin are screaming 'Double D, you nincompoop, you forgot the sunscreen!'" [skin crinkles] "Yeowch!"
In Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show, Edd expresses difficulty sleeping in an unlabeled environment. In this episode, he sleeps in the tent with Ed and Eddy without issue.
When Eddy rides atop Ed like a camel, Ed's upper lip unrealistically slopes downward, covering his mouth. An interview with Jono Howard (writer of the show) revealed that the visual of Eddy riding Ed as a camel was actually a mistake made by one of the Korean animators. It was such a ridiculous animation that Danny Antonucci decided to leave it in.
