Sadly that’s the entertainment industry for you. If you’re a creator and don’t kiss *** to everything they want to do with your material then you’re basically ****** for life.

Kind of like how CN is calling WE BARE BEARS one of their "originals" when it was adapted from a webcomic made by somebody else.

Which only reminds me once again of what Walt Disney always warned other producers and creators: never sell what you create to somebody else.

Ironic, given that the company he left behind will own our souls before long.

I must admit, another thing I loved about EEE was the fact that it actually kept track of its own continuity, and it showed, whether it was a little thing like Rolf giving Jonny the yo-yo that he previously gotten from Ed in a trade, or something big like the fact that Double D actually archived his inventions from previous episodes to learn from past mistakes. Such continuity is usually not very common in animated shows like that, so for EEE to do it almost felt like we as viewers were being rewarded for actually paying attention.

Some shows are extremely good with continuity, others not so much.

Other golden moments of what TV Tropes would call Continuity Porn, such as Double D reminding Eddy of the time that he taught Jimmy how to be a scam artist.

"Oh yeah! Didn't we win an Emmy for that episode?"
"Hardly."

And that time capsule episode, in which Ed remarks, "I remember that as though it were only second season!"
