General


"Nagged to Ed" is the 2nd episode of Season 1. In this episode, the Eds have their very first encounter with the Kanker Sisters while on a bug expedition in the woods. It does not take very long for the trio to turn from shy and nervous to lazy and spoiled at the Kankers' trailer home, stirring up trouble with their hosts.

Plot

The Eds are hanging out in Edd's garage, getting ready to go out on a bug hunt. Edd gives his friends some protective clothes and jars, and the two proceed to fool around with them before Edd leads them out to the forest. They then head out with Ed carrying a shovel and all three wearing gloves and boots. Edd is happy and impressed with the bounty of nature, but his friends are slightly scared, as strange noises can be heard around them. In addition to this, the forest is growing darker and foggier as they venture further in. Eddy, scared and fed up, decides to leave the expedition, and heads off in another direction. Scant seconds later, a scream is heard from where he went. Ed and Edd rush over and find him staring at a giant spiderweb.

While Eddy is terrified by the web, Ed and Edd have much different reactions. Both of them are in awe of how gigantic the web is. Eddy suggests that they go, but he sees that Ed has climbed onto the web and is bouncing on it. Eddy is somewhat entertained by this, but he still wants Ed to come down, whereas Edd is annoyed because Ed is disturbing the environment. Suddenly, the Eds hear voices chanting, and become scared. Ed tries to break free of the web, but finds out he is caught like a fly. His friends quickly reach up to try and pull him down. They reach up and yank, and after some straining, Ed comes down. The voices are still chanting, however, and the Eds' first priority is to get away from them. The Eds quickly run away from them only to almost run into a hollow, out of which peer three pairs of yellowish eyes. This process is repeated until the Eds back against a tree and scream.

When they come to, they are in a trailer with three girls staring at them. They are wearing robes, their clothes mysteriously taken. The girls try to kiss them, and the Eds scream and back against a wall. The girls then introduce themselves as the Kanker Sisters and add that they're new in town. Eddy and Ed introduce themselves respectively. Edd is about to introduce himself when the blue-haired girl cuts him off, saying they already know his name. The Kankers then introduce themselves: the blue-haired one is Marie, the redhead is Lee, and the blonde is May. The girls then say that they took care of the boys' dirty clothes, and that they will make some food for them.

As soon as the Kankers enter the kitchen, Edd insists on leaving. Eddy holds him back, however, arguing that the Kankers are new here and offering food. Edd then asks where they are, and Eddy looks outside. What he sees is a trailer park. Eddy is unworried, however, and they proceed to check out the trailer they are in. While looking around, the Eds find some hand-drawn pictures of the Kankers and the Eds together. Ed is with May, Edd is with Marie, and Eddy is with Lee. This starts to creep out the Eds, but they are not worried enough to leave. Marie then calls them over for some powdered milk, which the Eds greedily sip. She then slips a movie into the VCR, and the Eds sink back into the couch to watch.

In the kitchen, meanwhile, the Kankers are cooking burgers and fish sticks. A minor argument erupts between May and Marie over who will make what, but this is swiftly quelled by Lee, who points out that they have lunch to make while making perhaps the unhealthiest burger ever concocted. Soon enough, they finish making the meal, and send it out to the boys. The Eds begin chowing down, and the sisters excuse themselves to freshen up. The Eds eat, not caring about the presence of strange things (such as a cog wheel) in their food. When the Kankers come back down, they are wearing dresses, but the Eds do not notice. After repeated failed attempts to attract the Eds attention, Edd finally notices something is wrong, and questions them on it, only to receive the angry response that everything is fine.

The Kankers then angrily stand in front of the TV. When Eddy rudely tells them to move, the Kankers get in the Eds faces and tell them they have had enough of how things have been going. They then proceed to force the Eds to clean the mess they created from the food. The Eds rush around, trying to do so, and end up pushing the junk under the couch. The Kankers are not impressed. They then each grab an Ed and force them to clean. Ed is put on toilet detail, Edd on dishwashing duty, and Eddy works on the laundry. The Eds soon get in each other's way and end up breaking things and getting things dirtier. This comes to a head when Ed, after washing the windows, comes in and gets mud on the floor. When the Kankers yell at him, he looks at the footprints he is leaving while still moving forward. He then steps into a bucket full of water that Edd's using and slides into the kitchen, where Eddy hands him a pile of laundry and tells him to hang them outside. Ed slips back into the living room and runs into Edd. The bucket tips over, and both Eds fall. The water sloshes all over the living room floor, and Lee starts yelling at Ed. Fed up, Eddy rushes in and yells at Lee that they've had enough.

This statement wounds the Kankers, and they rush upstairs to their room. Eddy realizes that he has done something wrong, and they head upstairs to try and apologize. When they knock on the door, however, they are angrily told by May to just go away. Eddy happily accepts this, and the Eds begin to leave. When they open the door, however, they are greeted by the Kankers, again. The girls are holding doll versions of the Eds. Completely freaked out, the Eds make a break for it. The Kankers watch them go, sighing dreamily about how cute the Eds are before breaking into an evil laugh.

Trivia

  • Goofs:
    • Edd includes millipedes in his insect collection. Millipedes, however, are are actually arthropods, as they have more than six legs and lack a thorax or abdomen.
    • In Edd's garage, Eddy stretches a glove over his body, and wears a galosh as a hat. Moments later, both are missing.
    • As the Eds depart for the forest, Edd walks off screen, but disappears several frames too early.
    • When Ed is on the spiderweb, his gloves disappear.
    • When the Eds fall in the quicksand, their faces are shown up close. When this happens, the gap in Edd's teeth disappears.
    • When the camera pans up close to the robe Ed's wearing, Eddy's fingers can be seen. Similarly, when the camera shows the robe Eddy is wearing, Edd's fingers can be seen.
    • The drawing of Eddy and Lee can be seen on the wall behind the Kankers when they go to make food. From a distance, the "E" in "ME" is written normal. When Eddy examines it up close, the "E" is written backwards.
    • When preparing burgers for the Eds, Lee says "We got lunch to make?" When the burgers are finished, the Kankers say "Dinner's ready."
    • At the end, Eddy's mouth doesn't move when he yells "That's it!"
    • Just before the Eds sit down on the couch and watch Fish Bowl 2, Edd's hairs disappear for one frame.
    • Marie's left ear disappears when she and her sisters exclaim "They're so dreamy." It reappears when she turns around to walk upstairs.
    • As the Kankers head upstairs, Marie's mouth opens for a frame.
    • The Eds push their trash under the couch, causing it to sit lopsided. Later, when the Kankers sit on the couch, the trash is visible, yet the couch sits normally.
    • May yells out, "You better not wreck Daddy's bucket!" Oddly, Marie's voice is heard instead of May's.
    • Ed, with the diving helmet on his head, was able to hear Eddy's instructions and the Kankers' yelling. Moments later, when Lee lectures Ed, he cannot hear anything.
    • May sits on the bed when she tells the Eds to leave. When finishing her statement, she is standing at the bedroom door.
  • In this episode, the Kankers' bedroom is on the first floor. In every subsequent episode that shows their bedroom, it's on the second floor.
    • Earlier, when the Kankers changed into nicer clothes, they went upstairs.
  • As the Eds are drawn in by the scent of the burgers, the mysterious chanting from the forest can be heard again.
  • The diving helmet reappears in "Don't Rain on My Ed", as part of Ed's Peek Into the Future scam.
  • The Ed Junior doll reappears in "Ed Overboard."
  • Eddy can be seen with his middle finger extended when he puts on the body glove. Whether this is an animation error or hidden dirty joke remains uncertain. It should be noted that Eddy has four fingers when he first puts on the glove, yet he only has three fingers in the infamous frame.
