"Look Into My Eds" is the 11th episode of Season 1 and the 11th episode of Ed, Edd n Eddy. In this episode, Edd gets a psychology manual in the mail along with a hypnotizing wheel. Eddy, after seeing how it works, proceeds in misusing the hypnotizing wheel to hypnotize the Cul-de-Sac and make them obey his every command.
The newest scam Eddy has come up with is a bus ride to the candy store. Unfortunately, the candy store lies down a steep hill, and soon enough the Eds lose control of their bus as it flies down the hill crazily. While this disappoints them, they're soon distracted, as the mail has arrived, including a huge package for Edd.
When Edd opens the package, he finds his new psychology manual is here. When he gives Ed and Eddy a Rorschach test, he finds that Ed is psychologically normal, while Eddy seems to have a fixation with money. Eddy, convinced that the book is wrong, yanks it away and shakes it only for a hypnotizing wheel to fall from the pages. He picks it up, confused, and asks Edd what it is; Edd explains, and demonstrates on Ed by hypnotizing him into a ballerina. As soon as they set him back to normal, Eddy states that he's just seen a way to use the wheel.
The trio then go around the neighborhood hypnotizing everybody, playing such tricks as turning Kevin into a monkey, Sarah into a frog, and Jimmy into a bodybuilder. Eventually, however, this becomes troublesome, so Eddy snaps his fingers and lets them go back to normal as he leads his friends off somewhere else to find new suckers.
The new suckers are Jonny and Plank. Strangely enough, however, Jonny seems immune to hypnotism; his friend, however, isn't. After Jonny runs off crying about how Plank is a mindless zombie, Ed begs for a turn. Eddy allows him a try, and Ed goes after Rolf. He then proceeds to turn Rolf into a man-eating noodle, a bat, and a mindless zombie–all of which have Rolf attack Eddy so that Eddy has to beg Ed to set things back to normal. Once this is done, Eddy angrily takes back his turban, ready to get serious with it.
The next time we see Eddy, he is on a stage with a projection of him on a screen behind him. Everyone in the cul-de-sac has been hypnotized and are giving their money to him. Eddy thinks he's got it made right up until his nemeses show up. At this point, Eddy decides to exercise his power, and tries to hypnotize Lee. Unfortunately for him, his plot is thwarted by a simple problem: Lee's hair is continually in her eyes.
As payback, Lee grabs his Hypno-Turban and puts it on her head. She then proceeds to hypnotize Eddy and his friends. When we last see them, they're acting like dogs, barking and fighting in the trailer park over one of Lee's shoes.
Edd: [hanging from a branch with Eddy, listening to the screams of the paying customers careening downhill in the Eds 'bus'] "I'm afraid this may constitute a refund."
Lee: "Look at me! I'm a movie star!" May: "I'm a TV star!" Marie: [shoves May] "You've been canceled. I'm a TV star."
Ed: [when Kevin hypnotized as a monkey bites Ed's head] "AHH! Get him of me, Eddy! Get him off!"
Rolf: [scrubbing Victor and notices the Eds] "Hello Fellows! May I scrub you?" Ed: [not spinning the wheel] "Do you like what you see?" Rolf: [looking confused] "...What?" Ed: [still not spinning the wheel] "Look into the circly thing!" Rolf: "You crazy?" Ed: "It's not working!" Eddy: "Spin it, bean dip!" Ed: [spins the wheel] "Oh, thanks Eddy!"
Jonny: "I don't get it. What's Eddy doing, Plank? Plank?! What have you done? PLANK IS A MINDLESS ZOMBIE!" [runs off panicking]
Ed: [returns to normal and does the splits] "Ow, my calves hurt."
Eddy: [while being lifted by Jimmy] "Yes, Ed?" [Ed with Kevin biting his head bumps into Jimmy lifting Eddy as a weight lift] Jimmy: "My pecs hurt…" [Monkey Kevinjumps onto Jimmy to pick the bugs out of Jimmy's hair. He finds one, but Frog Sarah takes it away with her tongue]
Eddy: [gets ready to hypnotize Lee] "Prepare to be mesmerated!" Lee: "No way I'll be mesmerated. I ate my roughage!"
Ed: "Hey, what are you guys doing up there?" Eddy: "Knitting sweaters, you maniac! What are you doing?" Edd: "Look!" [sees the mail van coming by and heads over to get his mail] "The mail is here!" [Edd pulling his package out of the mailbox] "Oh, boy, mail!"
Edd: [doing the Rorschach test on Ed and Eddy] "Tell me the first thing that comes to your mind." Eddy: "Money!" Ed: "Book!" Edd: [flips to another ink blot] "And this?" Eddy: "Cash!" Ed: [thinks] "Buttered toast!" Edd: "Well, you're psychologically normal." Eddy: "How is buttered toast normal? Let me see." [snatches the psychology manual from Edd's hands] Edd: "Ow!" Eddy: "Where's the answers?" [the hypnotizing wheel falls out of the psychology manual and picks up the hypnotizing wheel and questions it] "Huh? What's this?" Ed: "Butter toast!" Edd: "That is a hypnotizing wheel." [takes the hypnotizing wheel from Eddy to test it on Ed] "Allow me to demonstrate.[spins disc in front of Ed, whose eyes become swirly] Ed, listen to the sound of my voice, you will become what you've always dreamed of. One, two, three." [snaps fingers and Ed starts dancing like a ballerina]
Eddy:[to Ed and Edd] "Our first pigeon." [calls to Kevin] "Oh, Kevin!" Kevin: "What?" Eddy: "I just want you to look at something." Kevin: "Other than looking at a dork?" Eddy:[chuckles evilly and pulls out hypnotizing wheel] "Look closely! Listen to the sound of my voice. You will become what I've always wanted you to be." [snaps fingers] Kevin:[going through the transformation] "Uh! Guh! Yowch! Guh!" [Now a monkey, he makes monkey noises.] Eddy: "Find the peanut, Kevin!" [Kevin wanders over to Ed, climbs on his head, and bites it.] Ed: "AH! Get him off me, Eddy, get him off!" Eddy:[watching] "Bingo."
This episode has several animation mistakes:
When Eddy is projected onto the big screen, he and the podium are projected in black and white, but in one shot, the podium he uses is projected onto the big screen as regular brown.
When Eddy takes the Psychology Manual out of Edd's hands, his mouth does not move when he yells "Ow!"
When Eddy hypnotizes Kevin, his mouth doesn't move when he yells "Youch!"
When they're on the bus, Rolf's mouth does not move when he says "Goodbye."
When Rolf laughs, his teeth turn white.
When Edd was laughing at Ed being a ballerina it showed him standing in the grass, but when Ed threw Eddy at Edd he was standing in the street.
Eddy as Eddy-dini bears a resemblance to the Batman villain The Mad Hatter, as both Eddy-dini and the Mad Hatter are short in stature and wear large hats with the ability to hypnotize people.
When Eddy first attempts to hypnotize Jonny, it doesn't work, even though he was staring right at him. Later on, Eddy gets him with an indirect projection of his hypnotic effects.
This failed hypnosis suggests that Jonny is immune to hypnosis.
When Eddy first hypnotizes Sarah, she immediately becomes a frog even though he did not tell her to become a frog. In all other instances (except when Eddy hypnotized everybody on the projection), the hypnotized person is told to become something. (i.e. Edd wanted Ed to become "what you have always dreamed of.")
Ed apparently dreams of being a ballerina, as that's what he becomes when Edd hypnotizes him, saying "You will become what you have always dreamed of."
Eddy always wanted Kevin to be a monkey as evident by him hypnotizing Kevin and saying to Kevin, " You will become what I've always wanted you to be!"
In the beginning the Eds are using the first vehicle to be shown in the series, a bus, as part of their latest scam.
The Eds' bus ride scam is at least one of the first scams where the kids don't ask for a refund; instead the Eds still have the money, but do not spend it right away.
This is the only appearance of Eddy's alter ego, Eddy-Dini.
During some scenes throughout this episode, such as the bus scene, Ed's eyebrow is thicker than usual.
The Psychology Manual is first used in this episode.
Rolf flies for the first and only time in the series.
Edd had money for Kevin when he was hypnotized. Normally the Eds are completely broke. Edd must have an allowance or other money source.
Right before Eddy and Edd jumped out of the "runaway bus", Eddy said "Women and children first!". This was what the people on board said on the Titanic evacuated before it sank.
This was actually a seafaring rule when it comes to passengers: as women and children were perceived as weaker, it was a general rule that you help them out first.
When Rolf acknowledges the Eds as he's scrubbing his animals, he says "Hello, fellows!" as opposed to the usual "Edboys."
The color of Eddy's tongue changes to a type of orange rather than its usual yellow-green color.
Nazz and the Kankers are the only people that didn't get hypnotized.
All the characters appeared, but Nazz does not talk at all in this episode.
