Ed, Edd n Eddy, an original, half-hour series from creator and executive
producer Danny Antonucci, tells the story of three best friends who band
together to tackle one of life's most daunting challenges-puberty. Though
they have the same first name and live on the same cul-de-sac in the
suburbs, the three boys' personalities are as different as they are
ridiculous. They're genuinely confused by the world, but they're too cool
to admit it. Bolstered by the power of adolescent ignorance, they plunge
headlong into outlandish summertime adventures that would be unbelievable if
they weren't so close to the reality of every kid's life. Ed, Edd n Eddy
airs Monday through Friday at 9:30 a.m. (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network.
Ed, Edd n Eddy: Scam of the Century for Nintendo DS features an original
storyline developed around Eddy losing his precious "Who to Scam and When"
book. When the three friends realize their classmate Kevin has the book in
his hands and an angry mob of kids has developed, they run for the woods.
Splitting up to throw off the crowd, they plan to meet up back at the
cul-de-sac. What they do not know is that several adventures await them on
their quest home. Players take control of the Eds and must make their way
through tricks, traps, angry kids and a barrage of ammunition including soap
and broccoli. Ed, Edd and Eddy finally make their way back to the cul-de-sac
only to find the ultimate obstacle before them: Rolf has built a giant fort
to keep the Eds out forever! Each Ed must use his own special talent to
smash, brainstorm or scam his way inside. Once inside the fort, the Eds
regroup to reclaim Eddy's scam book. But standing in their way is none other
than The Masked Melonhead Avenger and Splinter-The Wonderwood. Let the final
