Question 32 by AsktheSonofaShepherd Question 32 by AsktheSonofaShepherd
Dare insult or shame the Sun? Answer to Rolf's Scales of No Mercy.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


((Edd-boy says nothing because this is Ask Rolf, not Ask Edd.

''Knitted foot bag'' is Dani's saying, not mine. :iconestivalequinox: gets all the credit.

I actually just took Rolf's answer directly from this question, was too lazy to think of anything else askeddtheastute.deviantart.com…

I actually posted the sketch of the first drawing on FB to see how many people I could trick, because after I finished the sketch I was rather shocked by the similarities myself. Apparently, three people who saw the uncoloured drawing thought it was Edd. It wasn't until I pointed out the obvious differences that they realized it was actually Rolf dressed like Edd. When the drawing was uncoloured, it was really hard to tell. Mission accomplished.  XD

Aside, I do get tired of the constant Edd's hat theories. I'm actually one of the people who does support the Long Hair or Mullet Theory. It seems utterly ridiculous to me. I also think Ed and Eddy's reactions to seeing Edd without his hat on a number of occasions was exaggerated for dramatic effect. But I truly think there's nothing actually shocking to see. It's a flippin' hat. What's under there? His head. Duh. It seems like the only thing people care about is what's under his hat. Honestly, who cares? A hat's a hat, doesn't mean he's hiding anything. People might as well ask why you always wear jeans. Jeans are jeans, you wear them because they're pants, end of the story. No one said you were hiding anything by wearing articles of clothing. Yes, us humans are rather funny, for we feel the need to conceal the natural bodies God gave us. But we do this as a civilized statement, not because we're hiding skeletons in our closet.

People feel the burning desire to explain everything, put a name to every face, I suppose it's the natural way our minds work. So people cooked up some illogical or bizarre ''explanations'' to Edd's hat. But I say after so long, fans should leave the matter at rest. For if we knew everything, Edd would not be a mystery or the jigsaw puzzle we long to solve. If we found all the pieces, there would be nothing left to explore. Where's the fun in that? I'd rather be kept guessing, left in the dark. What's under his hat will always be ambiguous, save for witnesses like Ed and Eddy.

So yeah, I don't really question why Edd always wears a hat. Kevin always wears a hat too but no one questions him (probably because we know what's under there, but still).  I don't think it really matters ''what's'' under Edd's hat, if there's anything there at all which I highly doubt.  It won't change his character if we know the ''truth'' (or will it?). But no, little things like that don't matter in the measure of a person. It's just what I think. Whether he's ''hiding'' something or not, Edd will always be Edd. Apples are apples, oranges are oranges. It's just a minor detail that doesn't count.))

(I feel like characters concealing something about their appearances is a really interesting trend found in a lot of 90s cartoons (Miss Bellum's face in PPG, Cow and Chicken's parents only being shown from the waist down in Cow and Chicken), and yet fans make huge deals about what's being ''hidden.'' Although, unlike EEnE, Miss Bellum's face was eventually shown for like 2 seconds in the PPG finale and in the pilot of Cow and Chicken, the camera pulls back to reveal that Mom and Dad literally have no upper bodies. But still. Like other have noted, I highly doubt Edd is hiding anything new and revealing under there. He's self-conscious about a dreadful haircut, who knows?

Asides, I love the sketchiness of the art this time around.)

((I never replied to this, what's wrong with me? It must've gotten lost in the influx of messages swarming my inbox. My apologies, yaar.

I noticed this....I actually think all animated networks had some shape or form of a trend in their shows, which made each network unique and recognisable...Disney, Nickelodeon, Warner Bros/Fox animation studios, etc. Like, you always would know if it was X show due to these trends. For instance, Foster's could NEVER be mistaken for a Disney show, just as As Told by Ginger could never be mistaken for a Fox show, and so on. Nowadays, I believe the binary has dissolved somewhat. Even if back in the 90's, early 2000's, Rocko's Modern Life creator Joe Murray first worked for Nicktoons  before transferring to CN with Camp Lazlo, you could still tell the difference in each show, such as CN having fourth wall breaks, whereas this was a strict rule with Nick, albeit you could still tell both shows have Murray's stamp on them. Nowadays, most animators seem to be migrating everywhere. Gravity Falls for instance, though a Disney show, hired the majority of the creative teams responsible for trendy CN shows. So now you can't really decipher what's what, since most cartoons now, no matter the network, seem to gravitate towards the same target audience, format, art style, and trends. It's weird. There's no longer this segregation between networks.

I'd prefer, however, if the Cow and Chicken pilot and PPG finale never revealed the parents or Miss Bellum's face, it's what we don't see that adds to the fun. Once the secret's out, there's no more room for speculation. Therefore, I applaud Antonucci for NEVER revealing what's under Edd's hat, even in interviews. Of course, one of the animators who was interviewed about it actually sarcastically remarked, via the fanservice surrounding Edd, ‘’Prolly just a lotta blonde hair,’’ but surprisingly, a lot of fans took this to heart, believing it to be a canon statement. I guess sarcasm doesn’t transfer well in written form, huh?

Thank you btw. Looking back at this though, I'm inclined to use eye bleach. I can't FATHOM how bad my art was, and still is.))

(Hey-llo. It's not a big deal, girlie. I honestly totally forgot about this comment and as of late, I have been really shitty with logging in so I am seeing this a bit late. [I am feeling a little better than, say how I did at the beginning of this year, although I've been a little sad here and there since Sylvester disappeared, if you saw on Facebook. He still hasn't come back. Anywho...] Jay-zuz. I have over 23,000 notifications in my inbox! Uuugh! :faint: That said, I really miss talking to you and I can always make time to reply to your comments. I actually have some of our conversations still in here that I'd ought to get back to, ones that go far back as a year ago. Oh my! :blush:

Anyhow, I just had to re-read this question. I Siriusly forgot how funny it was. :lamo: And Edd-boy said... .... Lol. I see what you did there. ;)

Getting to the actual important-ness of this comment...

Oh yeah. I totally get you. It's a bit strange how that general unwritten ''rule'' with segregation has changed [or it seems to have changed]. I'm not sure if there was a certain standard set by each network then on how they wanted their shows structured with a certain aesthetic appeal and trends [i.e. Nickelodeon vs. Cartoon Network] that no longer exists today, but I do notice that. A lot. When I first saw stills from Gravity Falls, for instance, I totally thought it was a CN show, not Disney. And for the reasons you discussed, this mistake makes a ton of sense. Most of the creative team worked on CN network shows, as you've said, which I think started all of this modern cartoon aesthetic that seems to be everywhere now, not just limited to CN. On the opposite end, even Wonder Over Yonder looks like it belongs on CN and not Disney because, hey-llo, it has all of Craig McCracken's usual and familiar stamp all over it.

Yep. I totally agree with you here too. And indeed, sarcasm seems to fly over the heads of most readers. It could be that, lack of translation, or it could be reading comprehension failure. Who knows? :shrug:

That said, GIRL! SIRIUSLY?! YOU'RE TOO DAMN HARD ON YOURSELF! YES, YOU'VE IMPROVED IMMENSELY SINCE THEN, BUT BUT BUT, THIS IS NOT TERRIBLE! LIKE, GUUUURL! THE CHINAMAN IS NOT THE ISSUE!

Ah. Carry on. :) )

I've actually seen him without his hat on this game they have on the Cartoon Network website. Haven't played it in years, but it's a cafeteria food fight game, and if you play as Edd and win, he throws his hat off. He's bald. That's what I always figured anyway. :XD:

((A lot of people say that isn't canon because it wasn't created by AKA Cartoons BUT it could be likely.

Again, the world may never know and some things are better left untouched. I really think the creators were just messing with us. There's a lot of conceits in cartoons we just go along with because it's fun, but it doesn't always mean there's something there or not there. Just like we don't see the adults in the Peanuts or ever hear Arnold's last name in Hey Arnold!, Edd's hat is just another cartoon mystery that merely serves the purpose of engaging the audience and making us come up with all these conspiracy theories. But it doesn't mean there's any real secrets to find out. It's just fun stuff for the fans, and given the dramatic reactions to these mysteries, we're convinced it's something big to solve when it's probably insignificant.))
