Ed, Edd n Eddy

"No Speak Da Ed" is the 7th episode of Season 5 and the 109th episode of Ed, Edd n Eddy. In this episode, the kids are getting gifts from the penpals they've made through International Studies class. However, Ed's new pen pal keeps sending him wolf-related gifts that cause Rolf to get very agitated due to something traumatic from his past.


Lunch has just begun, and the Kankers are about to dig in to a hearty meal when their chairs shake. This is because a dimwitted Ed is scraping the gum off of the bottom of their chairs. Soon, though, his reason for doing this is revealed, as he gallops back to a stand reading "Moon Rocks" and hands the gum over to a spacesuit-clad Edd, who is painting them blue. Eddy is also clad in a spacesuit, and he's taking care of the sales part of the business, by trying to sell them to prospective customers. Of course, Kevin isn't interested in this shoddy scam, but this soon ceases to matter to Eddy as he and the other kids are distracted by the appearance of the Urban Rangers, who are making a mail call from the international pen pals, an assignment that has been given to the kids as part of their International Studies class.

Needless to say, each of the Eds have different reactions to their pen pals. Edd is naturally overjoyed to have a foreign pen pal in the form of a Norwegian girl named Gerta, while Eddy just sees his Korean pen pal, Hyuck, as a potential sucker. Ed's pen pal is the strangest of all, however, as Ed has been sent a quaint music box. Ed likes the music, Edd is glad that Ed has a good pen pal relationship, and Eddy is annoyed by the tune. A fourth person has a very different reaction to this, however, and Rolf angrily storms over, smashes the box, and yells at Ed not to trifle in things he doesn't understand, confusing all three of the Eds.

While Ed and Edd are pondering the meaning of Rolf's reaction, Eddy has come up with a way to philander some money out of the project, and soon enough he runs through the halls with an envelope he stuffs with "moon rocks" and sends by way of post to Korea. The scene is once again stolen by the Urban Rangers, however, as Jimmy arrives and hands Ed another package. In this packet is a wolf-pelt that Ed gladly puts on.

The bell to end school then rings, and the hallway floods with kids ready to go home. As Rolf is walking out, Ed howls like a wolf, and this sends him spinning back into a horrible childhood memory in which a man in a wolf pelt stole one of his sheep. Angry, Rolf attacks Ed with his shepherd's rod, and angrily shouts that “he” will never torment his livestock again before running out of the school and declaring he will have his revenge. Edd and Ed are once again left staring after Rolf in confusion, with Ed crying over being hit, when Plank arrives with a letter for Eddy. When Eddy opens it, a torrent of currency pours out, and he instructs Ed to take him to the candy store, ignoring Edd's warning that this is foreign currency and that it's virtually worthless unless it's exchanged for domestic money.

A short while later, Edd's prophecy comes true, as Eddy is rudely tossed out of the store jawbreakerless by the unseen owner. Eddy tries to reason with him but his Korean money is thrown out of the store along with him. Edd reminds Eddy that he had told him the transaction would fail. Before long, though, Ed quits paying attention to Eddy's predicament, as a chicken has popped out of a bush and he wishes to hug it. As it turns out, this chicken is a trap, and Ed is soon dragged over to Rolf's house. His friends follow, but the trail suddenly grows cold. Edd is confused, and he finds the sound of a dripping trap rather distracting, so he turns it off. Suddenly the ground beneath them opens up, sending them tumbling into a vast underground cavern.

In this cavern, Ed is trapped in a cage while Rolf tortures him. When Edd and Eddy speak up on his behalf, Rolf angrily grabs them as well. Soon, the Eds are trapped in Rolf's shed while Rolf uses his cow to torture Ed. Unfortunately for him, Ed is perfectly happy to be dunked in oatmeal again and again by Beatrice. Suddenly, the door is flung open, and Jonny enters with another mail call, this time for Edd. Edd opens his letter and takes out an unusual gift: a feather duster. He naturally finds this odd, as his mother has an allergy to feathers that he's sure he informed his pen pal about. Rolf recognizes the object, however, and breaks into gales of mirth, as the item in question is the "Feather Duster of Tomfoolery", sent by Gerta the Goatmilker, the greatest prankster in Norway.

Of course, Rolf must rebut, and soon the Eds are wrapped up in a suitcase that is supposed to be sent to Norway. According to Rolf, when Gerta opens the suitcase, they must leap out and shave her legs for the final prank. Of course, neither Edd nor Eddy are too enthused about this, but Rolf doesn't care, as he just leaves them there to be shipped away. Just as Edd and Eddy think things can't get worse, they do: Ed now has to go to the bathroom, to Edd and Eddy's horror.


  • Goofs:
    • When Rolf walks down the stairs to grab the Eds, he is seen with four toes. Normally, all characters on the show have three toes.
    • Edd mentions that his mother is allergic to feathers upon receiving a feather duster from Gerta. Previously, in "Cleanliness Is Next to Edness," Edd is seen using a feather duster to clean himself after falling into some leaves.
  • Eddy's pen pal is Hyuck, who is from Korea. This is a reference to the series' background, character, and prop designer, Hyuck E., who is also from Korea.
  • Eddy references "Dueling Eds" (and the Eels of Forgiveness) when he says "What's Wolfgang McHairyback gonna do, stick eels down our pants again?"
  • Some of the shops in the background are named after people who worked on the show:
    • Bonni's Taxidermy - References Bonni Reid, the show's color designer.
    • Danny's Meats - References Danny Antonucci and his short film, Lupo the Butcher.
    • Wootie's Cafe - References James Wootton, storyboard artist and director.
  • The title card has the "ø" character from the Scandinavian alphabet. This is a possible reference to Edd's Norwegian pen-pal.
  • At the end of the episode, the Eds are packed into a suitcase to be sent to Gerta. The postal code on the suitcase is 604 MVC 6651. If the letters are translated to their corresponding numbers on a push button phone, it reads A.K.A. Cartoon's phone number.
  • The Korean currency shown is a 1000 South Korean Won bill from the 1983 issue; bearing the face of Yi Hwang on the front.
  • School ends at 3:00pm, as seen on the clock when the bell rings.
