The first season of the Canadian-American animated comedy television series Ed, Edd n Eddy, created by Danny Antonucci, originally aired on Cartoon Network in the United States. Although originally set to premiere in November 1998, the season ran from January 4 to March 29, 1999, and consisted of 26 episodes. Adult cartoonist Antonucci conceived Ed, Edd n Eddy while working on a commercial design. Antonucci pitched the series to Cartoon Network and Nickelodeon. Both studios were interested in the series, but each demanded creative control and Antonucci refused. Cartoon Network ended up commissioning the show after agreeing to let Antonucci have control of the show. After its debut, the series was a success in Nielsen ratings, popular among younger and older viewers Met with generally positive reviews, the season earned Antonucci a Reuben Award for Best Television Animation. The Complete First Season DVD was released in Region 1 in 2006 and Region 4 in 2007. Both Ed, Edd n Eddy DVD volumes, Edifying Ed-Ventures and Fools' Par-Ed-Ise, also featured season one episodes.
