Plank is a character from the Ed, Edd n Eddy series. He is the friend that Jonny 2×4 makes up in his head. It’s a yellow piece of wood. There are red circles and blue dots in Plank’s eyes. Plank from Ed, Edd N Eddy series is created by Danny Antonucci for Cartoon Network.
Along with Plank, there are 13 other characters in the show who are also Plank’s imaginary friends in Ed, Edd n Eddy series. These include Bob, Salty Sam, Sawtooth Cecil, Plank’s mother, Plank’s father, and seven wooden toughs that Plank knows in some way.
Plank is said to be alive, but he is never heard or seen moving on the screen. However, Jonny 2×4 seems to understand what he is saying, but this is probably just his imagination.
Plank’s movements, like the scene in “Gimme, Gimme, Never Ed,” have led to a lot of speculation about whether or not he is still alive. In the episode, it seems like Eddy doesn’t like him because he hurts him in different ways. Plank is enrolled at Peach Creek Jr. High for some reason and plays football for the school. He takes part in the annual school spelling bee in “Too Smart for His Own Ed.”
Plank is seen with Jonny almost always in the Ed, Edd n Eddy series. They do almost everything together and are almost never apart. In the episode “Robbin’ Ed,” for example, when Jonny became Captain Melonhead, Plank turned into Splinter the Wonderwood, who helped Jonny.
Jonny seems to think that Plank is a bit of a jokester and prankster, and he often blames Plank for getting him into trouble. Jonny is so into his best friend’s world that he made Plank’s parents and friends out of other pieces of wood that were lying around.
Plank – Ed, Edd n Eddy Personality
Danny Antonucci says in the Season 2 Compilation of the Ed, Edd n Eddy series that Plank is just a block of wood and nothing more than that. Since he was a little boy, Plank has been Jonny’s best friend.
Plank talks and expresses himself through Jonny 2×4, who says, “Plank says…” when Plank wants to say something to someone other than Jonny. He moves around by having Jonny carry him, but in the episode “All Eds Are Off,” he is seen moving around the school campus without Jonny’s help.
Even though he is not alive, he seems to have a mind and personality. Plank has shown on more than one occasion that he has his own mind and personality. For example, in the Ed, Edd n Eddy series episode “Gimme, Gimme Never Ed,” Jonny says that he gets an allowance and tricks the Eds into riding their dangerous (and poorly built) ride “Requiem for a Whiplash” for five dollars, even though Jonny knows that Plank just wants to have fun.
In the episode “Dear Ed,” Jonny and Plank break up because of a fight that happened before the episode started but was not shown. This is another sign that he has a mind.
In “Tinker Ed,” he is seen sitting in the school library reading the book “Mind Control for Pre-Pubescents” while Jonny sits next to him, looking like a dumbass. The Kids and the Eds both agree that he is a living being. On the other hand, the Kankers think of him as a backscratcher and have used him that way a few times.
Plank is usually hanging out with the kids, and he is usually near or with Jonny. He seems to have some power over Jonny. In “All Eds Are Off,” Jonny had trouble making decisions and couldn’t do much without Plank. He didn’t even last a day without him.
In “Tinker Ed,” he reads Mind Control for Pre-Adolescents, which was already mentioned above, to show that he knows how to control Jonny. This may have been added by the animators as a joke or to make Jonny and Plank’s relationship even more mysterious.
Plank is very important to Jonny, and he is ready to fight anyone who tries to hurt him. As seen in the Ed, Edd n Eddy series episodes “Home Cooked Eds,” “All Eds Are Off,” “Urban Ed,” and “Dear Ed,” he gets very cranky when he is away from Plank.
Plank is thought to be a boy because most of the kids call him “HE,” and he is seen going to gym class with the boys.
From “Take This Ed and Shove It,” it looks like Old Plank has gone bad over the years. Over time, it looks like half of his mouth has been worn away. He has been bleached white, which is similar to how his mouth was wiped clean in “If It Smells Like an Ed.” Not only is half of his mouth dirty, but it looks like his left eye is too. Plank and Jonny have been best friends for 90 years, even though they are both old. He plays chess with Jonny a lot now, and since Jonny is blind in one eye, he seems to help him see things.
About Ed, Edd n Eddy
Ed, Edd n Eddy is a Canadian-American animated TV show on Cartoon Network that was made by Danny Antonucci. The characters from the show have won and been nominated at the 2002 Fancy Anvil Awards, which were shown on Cartoon Network. Antonucci said that Eds’ personality is based on his own traits and the things his two sons do. The other characters are based on kids he knew when he was growing up.
The show is about three pre-teen boys named Ed, Edd, and Eddy. They hang out in their made-up suburban neighborhood of Peach Creek, coming up with schemes to scam their friends out of money so they can buy jawbreakers, their favorite treat. Their plans usually don’t work out, though, and they end up in situations that always go wrong. In Ed, Edd, and Eddy’s Big Picture Show, the only adult we see is Eddy’s brother. The other characters almost never leave their neighborhood.
After being pushed back from December 1998 to January 4, 1999, the first episode of the show aired on Cartoon Network. Originally, there were only going to be four seasons of Ed, Edd n Eddy. However, Cartoon Network added two more seasons, making a total of six seasons. The sixth season, on the other hand, was cut short so that Ed, Edd, and Eddy’s Big Picture Show, a 90-minute TV movie, could be made. There were also three-holiday specials for Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day, as well as a special episode of “Cartoon Network Invaded” called “The Eds are Coming” that was about aliens.
I really like that Plank is a piece of wood that does nothing, but he still has character in the Ed Edd N Eddy TV show. Plank is undoubtedly real, but how people interpret his sapients is up to them.
