More Eddie Plot Ideas

So I'm gonna jot down some plot ideas I've been thinking about for Eddie, even though I sadly don't have any pictures that co-inside with them. You're just gonna have to imagine it in your head for now. The pictures that are here are a tad random, so enjoy a mix medley of things

Jenny has worked on a few other shows over the years. Back during the 50's she worked on a show about a Family of Beavers. There was Harry Beaver, Midge Beaver, and their two sons, Dickie and Wad Beaver...but their names arn't important to the plot. Jenny is also notorious for having "flings" with at least one person on the show she's worked on. She's been under the poop deck with Skipper Seagull, cleaned the tusks of Lord Bushy-Beard the Walrus, and seen what Wally the Whale looks like under his costume (FYI he isn't a real whale, which makes it worse). Back on the beaver show she was caught by a young Wad Beaver snogging with his fake father Harry. Now that he's all grown up he wants to be get with Jenny, and started stalking her. Are Ed and Shark going to help Jen get this Beaver off her back?...I don't know...

Jen and Goldie have found a wonderful yodeling group of Dolphins who want to perform on Eddie's show. Everyone puts up a protest, cause yodeling is so annoying, cept Ed who doesn't show interest one way or the other. He seems to be acting a bit weird, so Jenny talks to him a bit after the meeting. Ed expresses that if they wanted a Yodeling bit on the show, they should've asked him. He is a wonderful yodeler. Jen gets confused about Ed's odd emotional turn but figures that it's not about recognizing Ed's talent, but the fact that the yodel team are Dolphins. Ed disagrees, but Jen makes him notice how he gets upset over Dolphins, calling him prejudice. There was a review in a local news paper that called Ed a hyper idiot that teaches kids how to be consumer conscious but sells out to rainbow colored hairpins and Kid Bop. When news reporter Rick Finn (a dolphin) said that same thing on TV, Ed made such a fuss that the network made Rick recant what he said.
Ed takes a moment to think about this new evidence, but denies that his problem with dolphins. If he had a reason to hate dolphins is that they don't treat fish with respect. When the Yodelers arrive to the show, Ed tries to act nicely to them but interrupts them when he can, and never looks them in the eye. After their performance Ed announces to the audience that he can yodel to but the dolphins just laugh. He takes full offense and, after harsh words are said, the leader dares Ed to take a yodel challenge. So they go outside and yodel for the rest of the day. This however sends sound waves over the ocean floor and deep into the Deep Sea Fish town, waking them from their sleep during the day. Gulper and a group of fish get angry and storm up from the Deep to see who's causing the ruckus. Out of breath both Ed and the Dolphins are now horse, but keep going for the sake of showing who's best. Eddie is about to win the yodel contest when he sees the Deep Sea Fish coming from behind and shuts up and calls the Dolphins the winners. They laugh and chatter for joy and then get a pounding from the deep sea fish for being too annoying.

One day Jen and everyone shows up to work like normal and they find that Ed is no where in site. Jen learns from Ed's Bed that he's gone off on a pilgrimage to help a poor community and that he'll be back when he feels like it. In a furious rage Jenny drags Shark into her car with him and they take off to go find Ed. When they do they see he's about to get thrown over a volcano by a native tribe of crabs. They save Ed only to find that he wasn't going to get sacrificed but he had taught the people of the village about the science of Volcanoes, and was going to hold another science lesson. He had been going to this tribe for some time now and they loved his teachings of fact and science, he had become a god to them. Jen sees an advantage to this (as possibly getting free work out of ignorant villagers) and asks Ed if it's still possible to film the show. Ed is skeptical but agrees. So the next day they film the show in the villiage and Ed has one of the little girls do a native dance that is really cute. The ep was a success and the rating pulled through very well, but the next few days Ed starts to see more Hollywood people showing up saying that they want to adopt these "poor unfortunate souls" and give them things like cell phones and Starbucks. Ed gets upset cause the crabs were fine without these modern advances, and causes the Volcano to erupt to get rid of the terrible things Hollywood brought with it. Saddened by this Ed says that he can't return at either, seeing that he's no better then those other people, trying to turn the crabs into something they're not, but when a family of fish trouists come around to have their daughter dance with the crab girl, Ed sees that his exposer to the crab tribe wasn't all bad.

Ed gets a letter from a young boy in a town, saying that where he lives they don't let the towns people do anything fun and he's only been able to watch Ed's show through illegal means and wants Ed to bring happyness to his miserable town. He, Jen and Shark go to the town where they're immediately forced to wear gray jumper suits in order to gain entrance to the town. When inside they notice that the town is very militaristic, the TVs only have one network that shows government mandated programs, the food choices are only 5 different things, and noone is allowed to speak out against the government...yet Jen and Shark notice that there is no reason for them to. The TV is really good, and the news talks about multiple issues, both world news and local. The food is 5 star quality, all organic and no chemicals. The government is run by a nice and friendly man who walks down the street and donates most of his time refurbishing buildings and giving peace talks. Ed how ever is having problems with all of this. While the rules seems fair and managable, there is no option, people are forced to listen and eat only certain types of things. Ed starts going mad over the lack of individuality and the fact he can't find this poor miserable child he came to find. He soap boxes about how the world outside the town has more freedoms, but people just tell him to shut up. He finds a way to tear apart a wall in the town begging people to cast away their fear and make a run to freedom. How ever the gap in the wall lets an evil dictator in to attack the town. The dictator thanks Ed on behalf of the poor boy the dictator was pretending to be...Ed feels so ashamed that he fell for such a terrible trick. Luckily the military of the town is strong enough to fight off the dictator's army and when the mess is cleared up they ban Ed and his friends from ever returning. On the ride home Ed makes a point to say that even though they might've been in a "perfect society" they didn't have the same freedoms and rights every person should have. Jen looks at Ed and tells him, "Ed...they allowed Gay marriage!"
"WAAAAT!!" cut to black...

To get more ratings the Network heads suggest that Shark's brother Donny make a special guest appearance on the show. Shark doesn't show protest at 1st, and Ed thinks it's a grand idea, but as the show production goes on, Donny starts acting like he's in charge and making everyone do what he wants. Donny wants to make his little bro look good, but it's just making Shark more upset over him being there (being that Shark isn't allowed to be on his movies acting like a jerk). Ed sees that the two of them are like Oil and Water so Ed needs to find a way to get them to work together before there is a feeding frenzy on the show.

Shark and his friends are some serious Geeks. On Shark's off days from work he hangs out with his pals and they play card games together, like they've always done. They're never too geeky where they can't talk about real world events or tone down the geekiness for normal people but no matter what if Shark's brother is ever around with a new girlfriend, he makes it his personal mission to completely embarrass Shark's friends on front of the girl. One this night however Donny and brought over a famous celebrity super hot girl. Shark and his friends know that this girl is way out of Donny's league, and she doesn't need him to look any more sexier then she already is. So they go on a revenge trip of a life time, showing off baby pictures, underwear, and pulling many other pranks to get Donny embarrassed and made the fool.

Ed, Jen and Shark are invited to an awards dinner ceremony, even though they weren't nominated for anything it was worth showing up for, cause both Ed and Jen met the man of their dreams; a Golden Merman. Jen points out to Ed right away that he can't have him, and Ed plays stupid on the entire notion of showing interest in the man, saying he just wants to make friends. Jen desperately tries to talk to the Merman the whole night but gets pulled away by fat ugly people who want to talk to her about finances and cats. Each time Jen finds a way to squeeze out of the conversation, she sees Ed talking to the Merman and is able to cut the two of them off. Shark has consumed the whole dinner table by the end of the night and begs Jen to take him home cause he's sick, leaving Ed and the Merman alone. Sad and desperate, Jen manages to write her phone number on the merman before she has to leave. The next day she waits for his call, and when she gets it, it's Ed on the other end saying ," Um Jen, I don't think he could see your number on the back of his head...but I can."

More later...What do you think?

Eddie Eel's Extra Characters

Ah I've been away for a while now, but I have new stuff to show you. Totally worth it eh?

So here is mostly a collection of reoccurring characters and staff members on Eddie's show.

The two buff guys on the top left are the Camera Men of the show. Been calling them the Twin Trouts, ones usually nice and approachable, the other is grumpy and rarely talks. The intent is that they don't need to be recognizably different, and they're fairly generic looking so they don't need to get difficult to animate.
They're pretty supportive on the show but only there to work the cameras. There is a minor ep idea where the Grumpy Twin has difficulty expressing his mood and snaps at people for trying to be nice to him. So Ed gives him Mood buttons, when he's upset and grouchy he puts on the Emo button so that people leave him alone, or if he's in a good mood he puts on the happy button and people will know it's ok to talk to him and give him compliments. This concept works best with some people as we all have a time when we just want to be left alone and other people don't need to be yelled at or think he hates them (certainly the young kids who just want to say hi). This idea doesn't work for everyone as Jen can be bi-polar at times.

Noel is a French Boar Fish who is a fashion expert and costume designer on the show. There is a full length Ep in which we find out she's the daughter of a famous designer and Ed and the gang go off to France to give her support (more about that later). Noel and Ed were introduced by Jen and Shark, in an attempt to have Noel rip Ed's crazy fashion sense a new one. In the end it turned out that Ed could speak French and had a very keen since about high fashion. They became good friends and Ed only has her around cause he likes her (even though he can make his own cloths). She might be a lesbian, which is a point that won't ever be brought up in the show but would explain why there isn't a chance she and Ed will hook up.

Goldie Garibaldi is the show's sales rep. She might be the only staff character outside the Camera Fish who shows up more then once. She's in charge of finding sponsors and making deals between performers and advertisers to help fund the show. While she comes off as annoying, she gets the job done and outside of Jenny is the main backbone to keeping the show afloat. Jen is charge of making sure the people show up and do their part, Goldie makes the calls and gets the money. Ed is the show's main creative director as well as being the star, and Shark adds his two cents when no one else can. Goldie does her best to find sponsors who Ed will like, such as charities and programs that help children, but Ed still has to get advertisers that are full of fatty meats or sugars. Ed will accept these ads with delightful protest; "Chocolate Marsh Puffs...MMMMM, sticks to your heart!"

Pepito is the show's lighting and tech guy. He is a real electric eel, and comes from Brazil, so he doesn't speak English very well. Eddie one day asked him how he can become an electric eel just like Pepito. So out of frustration Pepito tells Ed to take two wires, like so, and bite hard on them. So Ed does it one day and kills half the's ok it's just a cartoon. Jen does get pissed though.

The VP is a Sea Otter who is the Vice President of the network. The president is a real mean and nasty shark, but I have a feeling the the Presidents get replaced a lot (cause they get eaten) so the otter here doesn't ever want to be the President, out of fear of getting eaten himself. He's not really a treat to the show but provides a bunch of bureaucratic BS.

Kyle is the show's obsessive fanboy. He sits behind Jenny during the shows production and breaths heavily. They talk about Kyle as a way of punishing someone, cause most of the staff feel that if there is anyone who'll go on a crazy rampange and gun everyone down, it'll be him. But it's most likely Kyle would save everyone when times turn their worst. Kyle is ment to be anyone in real life, and his design can change to match someone who works on the show, but for now he's just a greasy fat guy.

The kids here are pretty generic, I wasn't going for any that look final, but gives you an idea of how fish look in the show.

The shark at the top is Shark's brother Donny. He's ment to be a Vin Diesel/The Rock type of actor. Doing things that are manly and embarrassing at the same time. Both he and Shark still live with their mother but when Donny stops by with a sexy new girlfriend, he usually makes fun of Shark for still living with "Ma". Up until getting a show with Eddie, Shark usually fallowed in his borther's shadow, almost literally, cause their mother wanted Donny to give Shark work, so Donny had Shark be his towel boy. Jen met Shark because she was trying to hook up with Donny, but Shark saved her from being dumped hard (as Donny usually doesn't like to keep week old arm candy). The two of them support each other when times are hard or Don gets a bad movie review, but otherwise they fight like cats and dogs.

I have some plot ideas with Donny involved, and I'll go into them later. Tell me what you think of these guys now?
