  • Extreme is the definition of this episode!

    This episode was extreme. You normally don't see extreme stuff in this show, but it finally showed us. Eddy vs Rolf in 4 events! I liked how Eddy made fun of Rolf in the beginning and then laughed right in Rolf's face. Eddy sure makes me laugh when he mocks people. I thought it was cool to watch both of them survive torture. I wouldn't stand getting my arm jabbed by a desk or whatever it was. I forgot... but I have gotten hit by those and those hurt like f***! This episode was an awesome episode and I hope they continue.

  • Eddy (yet again) tries to become an urban ranger.Rolf gives Eddy the ultimate chest of resilance badge.This leads to a set of very painful injuries for the both of them.

    This episode is exactly why i watch ed edd n eddy.The pain and suffering.Call me sick but this episode had me in tears of laghter.But honestly were they allowed to show eddy nude.Its probably the fourth time theve done that to him,.I wonder why...Anyway this episode is full of pain hurt agony and competition and is not for the weak heart (joke).First Eddy has to wax his leg,then he has to edure several bashes to the arm,go head first into a bramble bush in the nude,then he gets hit by a train falls off a cliff flung into the air.If youre still alive and havnt suffered from heart attack then just to top it all off he loses by one second.Yikes!moreless
  • In an overall area, I would have to say that this episode is excellent and proves to be my all time favorite. I loved the Tour of Tears.

    I would suggest that this episode be named the best episode ever. It is so full of a competitive spirit and that is what a lot of people want in a cartoon... some kind of competition. The history of Eddy and the Urban Rangers really made a statement in this episode. 10/10 easily. I also thought the way the sequence was put up was very interesting and clever. Although I wouldn't suggest this episode for young kids, this would be great for mature kids, teens and adults alike. I love this episode and must say this is a fine episode that they made. The 3 Eds forever!moreless
  • Eddy wants a badge and to kick Rolf's butt!

    Eddy will whine, screm, cry, and tear up until he breaks

    Down and gets his badge. As well as his way and that

    He most of all, wants to kick Rolf's butt very badly.

    Very funny episode as I was really lol! He does win one badge after all. A cry baby badge! LOL!!

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (9)

    • The steam engine has a diesel's horn sound when it should have a whistle.

    • When Jonny was talking about the Harry Chest badge,he said that it hasn't been earned in over 50 years. But that's impossible because Rolf and the others are 12 and it's his troop youth. So it's impossible to be 50 years.

    • Who in the right of any youth group, like the Urban Rangers, would put any of its members through a course that injury or death is likely just for a badge?

      1. Waxing of the Leg: likely result is skin irritation
      2. Funny Bone Whacking: likely result in a fracture of such bone
      3. Bramble-Bush Streaking: likely results are cuts and puncture wounds
      4. Pendulum of Pain: rib fractures
      5. Final one... well, we saw the results if one is likely to live.

    • Why did Rolf get the Hairy Chest of Resilience and Eddy, the Cry baby boo boo badge if Eddy only blacked out a half second after Rolf?

      Reply: How else would you decide the winner?

    • When the train tracks are switched, Eddy and Rolf wouldn't go in the direction in which the tracks are switched. They would just keep going forward.

    • Since Eddy won a badge, shouldn't that make him an Urban Ranger?

      Reply: You might need certain badges (not including te cry-baby boo boo badge) to become an Urban ranger or they lost their chance in Oath to an Ed.

    • It doesn't seem possible that a train in Peach Creek would have the Urban Ranger insignia on it.

      Reply: And yet, there it is!

    • If the hair on Rolf's head is blue as well as his back, why is his leg hair black?

    • When the Eds look from behind the fence at the Urban Rangers, Eddy's sweater is a lighter color than regular.

  • QUOTES (2)

  • NOTES (9)

    • Running gags: 1) Eddy and Rolf getting hurt as they compete for the badge. 2) Edd trying to discourage Eddy to fall out of the competition before he gets hurt.

    • Look closely: In the Urban Rangers Brochure, Plank's parents are seen from Postcards From The Ed.

    • Apparently, steam trains still run through the culdesac.

    • This is the sixth appearance of the Urban Rangers as well as their final in the series.

    • This episode proves that Eddy is indeed an urban ranger, despite past attempts and comments that he wasn't, because even though he didn't win the Hairy Chest of Resiliance he did win a badge.

    • Apparently, from what Jonny and Jimmy have said, no one has won the Hairy Chest of Resilience badge in over fifty years.

    • Eddy wins a cry baby badge.

    • These were the challenges to earn the Hairy Chest of Resilience Badge:

      Waxing of the Leg
      Funny Bone Whacking
      Bramble-Bush Streaking
      Pendulum of Pain
      Final Endurance Test (i.e. jumping off a cliff onto an oncoming train and then launched off of a couch catapult, and then seeing who passes out last)

    • This is the second time since Oath to an Ed, that an Ed tries to win an Urban Ranger badge. In this case, they somewhat succeed.
