NOTE: GOING BY A SUGGESTION FROM CASSIE, I ADDED IN A LITTLE MORE. IT IS HIGHLIGHTED IN RED.
IT IS TIME FOR ALEXIS' HALLOWEEN SPECIALS' WEEKEND!
Okay I need to be completely honest here, I am not a fan of this series at all. The only reason I sat down to watch this special was because it is one of the few cartoon cartoon related specials that I have not seen. I was also hoping it would be good as the other specials from Cartoon Network were better than their shows. Billy and Mandy's Jakked Up Halloween for example was excellent and even better than the series, which I also loved.
It begins with Edd, obviously bored and waiting for something. He has put leaves in piles by color and perhaps shape to and in between, reading a book. Suddenly Eddy comes out of school angry because he had received detention by his teacher on Halloween of all days.
They go see Ed who is in a zombie like negative state from watching to much horror videos. What happens next is typical Ed, Edd, and Eddy. While the Ed's begin their hunt for the fabled Spookiville, they run into co-stars from the cartoon, which Ed hallucinates as monsters. In the end, the revelation of what spookiville is is so predictable and stupid that I rolled my eyes.
Overall, like many cartoon cartoons this was predictable and funny in many ways but overall nothing truly saves it. The animation is just as bad as the series and although most if not all of the Cartoon Cartoons had this animation, this show looks bad and annoying. The characters are annoying and unlikable in my opinion. At least in this special, Edd or Double D was enjoyable but the plot was still ugh and the hallucinations of Ed got old fast. This took place on Halloween and most of the kids that Ed hallucinated as monsters were trick or treaters. The mythical Spookiville was supposed to be the candy promised land and they spent most of the night looking for it. If I had to find any positives, I'd have to say that parts were funny like a scene at the end. Also, at first the hallucinations were interesting like the group of teenage girls but as I said, they did get old pretty fast.
I am going to say to avoid this special unless you are a fan of Ed, Edd, and Eddy. I was not impressed.
I hate this show immensely. I have tried to watch it now that it is years later and still can't stomach the show. It is a deep hatred. Only cartoon I hate more is Beavis and Butthead. I will take your word on how bad this is lolReplyDelete
