Egghead Ed is a scam that appeared in "Too Smart for His Own Ed." In the scam, Eddy offered up Ed (fresh off his spelling bee win), who would help the kids with their homework for only twenty-five cents per question. All the kids bought it, much to Edd's chagrin, knowing that he could've actually helped them.
Eventually the scam failed, as the kids got back their graded papers and found that they had all received Fs. After beating up Eddy and Ed, they angrily took their money back from Eddy and stormed off. Eddy chased after the kids in a vain attempt to retrieve some of the money while Ed and Edd reconciled with each other and went off to Ed's house for some cookies with mayonnaise.
