"Look Before You Ed" is the final episode of Season 6 and so far the show as well, before Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show. It is also the 126th episode of the series. In this episode, Edd and Jimmy create a safety club to help people avoid injuries during the winter season.
It's a well-known fact that wintertime can be hazardous, everywhere you go there's danger lurking - ice to be slipped on, snowballs to be whacked with, not to mention the problems with snowboards and toboggans. Luckily for the Kids - and despite Eddy's grumbles - Double D has decided that enough is enough. So is born the Safety Club and on paper it doesn't look like such a bad idea, after all, nobody - and especially the accident-prone like Jimmy - enjoys getting hurt while they're playing so you'd think Edd's club would be to everyone's advantage.
Unfortunately though, this doesn't seem to be the case as never one to let his obsessions take a back seat, Double D along with sidekick Jimmy, is soon taking the role of safety officer and the whole business of looking out for everyone else a little too seriously. Naturally it's not long before safety gets in the way of having fun, Sarah and Nazz are not allowed to ice skate, a frozen Jonny is yet again rescued (we think) from Plank's somewhat sinister influence and Kevin gets a lecture about the hazards of not wearing a safety helmet. It started off nicely but as the fun goes bye-bye tempers everywhere are beginning to fray and just to add to the fun, Eddy and Ed are being their usual disruptive selves, turning Edd's hard work and good intentions into snow-cone scams and pitfalls. Poor Edd, he only wanted to help but now he's simply getting on everyone's nerves - including Jimmy. This can only mean rejection, rebellion and humiliation. Oh, and the launch of the "Owie Go Kapowee Club" of course with the Eds themselves on ice. Brrrrr!
Jimmy: "Oh! Oh! I get it now, Sarah." [after struggling to make a snow angel] "I pulled my funny bone, Sarah. Owie!" Ed: "Hibachi Man makes his daring escape, The Barbecue Belly Slide!" [slides on the snow with his stomach]
Eddy: [after being pelted with a snowball by Ed] "Better make a will, Ed!"
Jimmy: [enjoying the Safety Cadets patrol] "Isn't this exciting?" Eddy: [not impressed whatsoever at all] "Yeah, like a faucet leak!"
Jonny: [after making himself a human snowman] "Quit laughing at me, Plank!" Edd: [off-screen] "Deputy?" Jonny: "I told you I would make a good snowman. So there!" Edd: "Jonny, what on Earth were you thinking?" [while putting a thermometer in Jonny's mouth] "Are you aware of hypothermia?"
Eddy: [listening to Edd telling Kevin he should wear a safety helmet when snowboarding] "Hah! Box-head don't need no helmet, he's already dead from the neck up!" Kevin: [mad after hearing Eddy call him box-head] "Oh yeah? "How 'bout I box your head…" [places boat motor on his snowboard] "...Dorky?!" [Ed and Eddy starts to run as Kevin chases them]
Kevin: [seeing the Eds in their prison] "Ha ha, it's dorks on ice, right on!" Rolf: "Yes, Rolf finally feels safe enough to appear in this episode."
See anyone you know from Double D's Safety Club snowflake spotting chart? Well alongside the Umbrella, the Solid Beggar and the Split Leaf there's the Hexagonal Jim, Simple Diggs & the Hollow Zoe, who are of course senior storyboard artists Jim Miller, Scott Underwood and production assistant Zoe Borroz!
For anyone who might be wondering what a Hibachi is, it's one of those cheap little portable barbecue grills, hence "Hibachi Man" Ed's amazing living breathing melt-all abilities!
When Rolf walks out of the school in the end, he says: "Yes, Rolf finally feels safe enough to appear in this episode." This is a direct and obvious 4th-wall break.
This episode is dedicated to Paul Boyd (1967 - 2007), who was shot dead on August 13, 2007.
This is the second episode of the series to be dedicated to someone, the first was "Dim Lit Ed" and the person two whom that episode was dedicated was Shawn "Wilfrid" Godin.
