Edgar & Ellen

Show Summary

Based on the beloved books by Charles Ogden, this series follows the adventures of two 12-year-old twins living in a 13-story mansion in a stuffy town called Nob's Limbs. Together with their pet known as "Pet," and their groundskeeper Heimertz, the twins stay busy with mischief and inventions as their parents are on an around-the-world cruise. The current books in the "Edgar & Ellen" series are: "Rare Beasts," "Tourist Trap," "Under Town," "Pet's Revenge," "High Wire," "Nod's Limbs" and "The Mischief Manual." There are also 12 two-mintue shorts that air constantly on Nicktoons Network, and six holiday specials as well that began airing on Labor Day Weekend 2006. The six holiday specials are: Accept No Substitutes, which was a back-to-school special, Trick or Twins, which was a Halloween special, Cold Medalists, which was a winter special, Crushed, which was a St. Valentine's Day special, Nobody's Fools, which was an April Fool's Day special, and Frog Days of Summer the most recent special aired on Labor Day Weekend 2007, the second back-to-school special.moreless

  • Pretty boring and very bland.

    2.0
    This is very bland, I'll explain.



    Plot: Edgar & Ellen, a twins who play pranks on everyone in the city called "Nod's Limb". (Probably it's somewhere in Slovakia). They got nothing else.



    Characters: Bland. Really bland. Stephanie is somewhat a gender-reversed counterpart of Kevin. Edgar & Ellen is very bland, and their pet too. Also the other characters are very generic. VA is fantastic though.



    Humor: Boring, pranks, all pranks. Do they have any ideas?



    Art: Not joking, also bland. They should have improved those characters a little and fixed the animation movement a little bit.



    Overall: 2. It's pretty boring in many ways. Still, bearable to watch. If you want to be bored.moreless
  • It's not only a bad show in general, but a very boring mess as well.

    1.0
    Nicktoons Network was a place where we could once watch classic Nickelodeon shows like Rocko's Modern Life, Kablam!, and so on. Then they decided to try to make their own original shows, and most of them were debacles, and Edgar and Ellen really falls into the category of disastrous. The show was actually once just a quick 4 minute cartoon, but it somehow got its own show. It takes place in a town called Nod's Limbs where two twins, Edgar and Ellen play practical jokes on the citizens. So while it sounds decent enough it gets really repetitive really fast. The main issue this show suffers from is that it's very predictable. An episode goes like this. Edgar and Ellen decide to pull a prank on either the mayor or the spoiled daughter, it goes wrong, and they get hurt in the end. Pretty much once you have seen one episode you have seen them all, and there is no rewatch value at all in this show. The characters are also another problem. All of these characters are just flat out boring and generic. All the townspeople are idiots who are always happy. The daughter is always being a spoiled brat. The mayor is just stupid and oblivious. The twins themselves despite being "geniuses" are complete brain dead morons who lack any common sense. The humor is dreadfully unfunny. Most of the show relies on every gag that has been used to death and is very boring. Even the pranks are boring, and very few got a chuckle out of me. the artwork while decent is unoriginal and nothing looks interesting at all. The animation is very stiff in this show and choppy. Characters move awkwardly and lip syncs are a little off sometimes. What you get in the end with this show is something unoriginal in many ways, and very boring. I certainly was glad it got canned after a year. It's not only a very bad show, but a very boring show as well. the plots are very repetitive, the characters have no personalities, the humor is unfunny, the artwork looks unoriginal, and the animation is dreadful. IF by chance you come across this series on TV change the channel unless you want to be bored out of your wits.moreless
  • What....in....the....heck...happened to Nicktoons Network? (Preferably just Nicktoons)

    1.0
    Okay, this used to be ALRIGHT as a mini-series on Nicktoons Network. I watched that channel nonstop when they actually showed good shows like Rocko, Zim, Kablam, etc. Now they're just looking for something to fill up timeslots. Honestly, can you say that Kappy Mikey was planned to be that horribly animated (even for a crappy anime), or could it be the practically ten dollar budgets that Nick gives them? Don't make new shows, show the old ones, dangit! Same thing happened with Cartoon Network back in 99-2000. I say, dump the show, keep the mini-series, and get yer heads out of yer phannies, Nick!moreless
  • This show is not worth watching, Bardel Ent. should be ahamrd for making this show.

    1.0
    Bardel Ent. cut their funds just to make this....thats a laugh. Unlike some of other shows produced this show isnt that much appriciated. Unlike one of Bardel's shows, Silverwing, which was based off of one of the greatest childeren's NOVELS, this show doesn't have a storyline, only a plot. I realy don't like this show because of its lack of a storyline. I don't think Bardel's choice of the cutting of funding to Silverwing to make pointless show was a good idea, as a matter of fact it was probraly not even better then a bad idea. That is all I need to say about this disgracemoreless
  • It is a dreadful pain to watch.

    1.0
    NickToons Network should learn with it's "original series". Most don't tend to last very long. And Edgar and Ellen in itself is a pain to watch, even when it was just a filler short. You've got the two twins who prank, and it's rather unoriginal pranks I might add, a typical Miss Spoiled Princess, and a dunderheaded mayor. That along with their "pet" is the general main cast of the show.



    The episodes seem to be basically the same. Something pointless happens to stir a plot, the twins decide to prank the spoiled brat or her mayor father, and it generally goes wrong.



    Big fun.



    Supposedly the twins are the smartest in the town. If that's the case I don't see it. The entire town seems like a bunch of idiots. I'll be happily crossing my fingers that this goes off air and FAST!moreless
