==Personality and Characteristics==
Edward is a sadistic, trouble-making, ill-tempered, nasty, mean, selfish, rude, and angry platypus who sleeps in [[Pinto Cabin]] with Chip and Skip. He enjoys watching the suffering of others and is constantly coming up with schemes to spoil any fun that [[Lazlo]] and his friends might have. He has a severe hatred for Lazlo and [[Camp Kidney]], though that has lessened over time.
+
Edward is a curmudgeon platypus who likes to laugh at other's misfortune. Edward had his personality inherited from his older brothers. Edward hates [[Lazlo]] due to his optimistic and energetic personality, which often clashes with his grounded (if not somewhat cynical) temperament, and is somewhat jealous of him because he knows how to have fun. He is also the only Bean Scout to have any sort of common sense and gets easily enraged by idiocy.
   
Despite his intense dislike of Lazlo, Edward is usually seen as a friend/ally of Lazlo and often associates and joins forces with him usually for a common goal. He's often shown grateful to Lazlo whenever he performs any acts of kindness towards him.
+
Edward is known to play mean pranks. In "[[Campers All Pull Pants]]," he manages to pants everyone in [[Camp Kidney]], including [[Scoutmaster Lumpus|the Scoutmaster]]. Eventually, he realizes that it's not only funny to pants other campers, but to pull down his own pants as well. In "[[The Weakest Link]]," Edward tricks the [[Jelly Cabin|Jellybeans]] into following a map into the wilderness and walking in circles.
   
Edward is the smallest member of Camp Kidney, and, as evidenced in [[Movie Night]], he's the youngest as well. He was the only camper who could not watch the horror movie because everybody thinks that he was not a "big boy" yet according to the Bean Scout handbook. Despite his age, he often acts more mature than the other scouts at Camp Kidney and his voice is more like an adult than the rest of the campers. He even has his own credit card.
+
Edward often attempts to assert his masculinity and toughness. In "[[Tomato Paste]]," Edward tries to earn all the required merit badges to graduate to being a [[Tomato Scouts|Tomato Scout]], a distinction that only the "toughest" Bean Scouts normally achieve. In "[[Movie Night]]," he is revealed to be the youngest Bean Scout, and is deemed too young to watch a film rated "BB" for "big boys" only. He attempts to watch the film just minutes before his birthday, and is terrified. However, upon viewing it again a few moments after aging, he loves it like the rest of the campers. It is possible that he has a complex due to always being the youngest, so he always wants to prove that he's tough.
   
As opposed to his aggressive and bitter attitude, Edward secretly loves playing with dolls, his favorite being a doll named [[Veronica the Doll|Veronica]] that he got for Christmas, and he liked it so much, he told his mom ([[Susan Platypus|Susan]]) to give the rest of his presents to charity. He would also really like to own a "voodoo drum".
+
He is also shown to own a doll named Veronica in "[[Hello Dolly]]," which he desperately tries to hide from the other campers; after he is discovered cuddling it, he immediately denies owning it and suggests that he blow it up to prove that he doesn't own it; he ends up blowing up a decoy doll made from a pickle and a marshmallow, which fools all of the campers except Lazlo, who is happy to keep the secret.
   
He has a tendency to panic and overreact when something really upsets him.
+
Edward has shown himself to be pessimistic at times, such as during the tug-of-war in "[[Love Sick]]," where he points out that the Bean Scouts always lose to the Squirrel Scouts due to [[Gretchen]] carrying the team.
Due to his spoiled attitude, Edward is constantly needy for attention at all costs. He won Camp Kidney's mascot contest with his "Duke of Lice" costume by using a blackmail drawing of the Jellies who were certain to win but the prize was not as good as it originally seemed. A similar twist of fate occurred when Edward wins the go-kart race, yet his trophy is the smallest of them all.
 
   
[[File:Edwardwhines.jpg|thumb|250px|right|Edward as a cabin leader.]]
+
In "[[The Wig of Why]]," Edward shows his manic side when he becomes obsessed with Lazlo telling his fortune. Since the "price" for a fortune from [[Lazlo|Madam Lazlo]] is a smile, Edward is initially unable to deliver. However, by the end of the episode, he becomes consumed by his obsession, and creepily smiles at Lazlo.
   
Despite being precocious and sarcastic, Edward isn't as smart as he thinks he is. His closest friends are his bunk mates Chip and Skip who are the only campers who make him feel smart due to their collective stupidity. Edward is also close friends with [[Samson]] as the two are quite often seen with each other, although Edward sometimes picks on him as the series progresses. Perhaps because of their similar personalities, [[Gretchen]] from [[Acorn Flats]] has a crush on Edward, which [[Patsy Smiles|Patsy]] finds amusing. Edward (and later, Gretchen) is terrified when he finds out his needs to compete with Lazlo in checkers. When he is confronted by [[Chef McMuesli|McMuesli]] over his anger issues, Edward mutters a single word, "loser", which is a stark allusion to the insecurities Edward feels. He also has a few aspects in common with [[Scoutmaster Lumpus]], and the two worked together to stop Edward from going to Tomato Camp in [[Tomato Paste]].

He has no imagination when it comes to names. In [[Hello Dolly]], when he received Veronica for Christmas, he said, "I think I'll call you... Veronica!" and in [[Ed's Benedict]] he named the egg he supposedly laid after himself.
 
 
Edward is very deceitful, and hardly an episode goes by without some scheme of Edward's failing to induced the worship Edward so much desires. He ordered a number of phony merit badges to make himself feel better, which almost has him attending Tomato Camp. This was one of the traits he had in common with Scoutmaster Lumpus. In [[Being Edward]], he tried making everyone worship him on "Edward Day", only for everyone to misunderstand and so they light-kindheartedly decided to be as rude and obnoxious as him (basically, being Edward for a day).
 
 
Edward has a horrible tendency to bite off more than he can chew. When he faked a yeti attack in [[Radio Free Edward]], he claimed that he handled the situation when really it was just a ratings stunt and he claimed that he would be ready next time they attack. However, when they broke into the radio station, he was reduced to a trembling, screaming wreck and is still cowering in a corner when the yetis turn out to be more or less harmless.
 
 
Edward has [[Platypus Brothers|four older brothers]] who also attended Camp Kidney and look down on him due his being the youngest. It's because of this bullying that Edward has developed an aggressive personality. He finally stood up to his four older brothers after they used him as a tether ball and accidentally sent him hurtling towards two other campers who had been bullied, teased, and harassed by them four years prior.
 
 
Like his older brother Cheesly, Edward can be very sycophantic, especially towards the Scoutmaster. However, unlike his four older brothers, [[Slinkman]] knows how to handle the platypus.
 
 
As a result, Edward is very insecure and concerned with being 'macho' in order not to be humiliated by ''everyone'', in spite of the fact that in Hello Dolly, Lazlo is very accepting of the fact that he plays with dolls (much to his older brothers' disgust). It's revealed in Movie Night'' ''that despite his attitude, he is actually the youngest camper in Camp Kidney.

Edward is a Bean Scout at Camp Kidney, and a secondary antagonist to Lazlo. He is the youngest son of Susan Platypus. He is voiced by Mr. Doug Lawrence.

Personality and CharacteristicsEdit

Edward is a curmudgeon platypus who likes to laugh at other's misfortune. Edward had his personality inherited from his older brothers. Edward hates Lazlo due to his optimistic and energetic personality, which often clashes with his grounded (if not somewhat cynical) temperament, and is somewhat jealous of him because he knows how to have fun. He is also the only Bean Scout to have any sort of common sense and gets easily enraged by idiocy.

Edward is known to play mean pranks. In "Campers All Pull Pants," he manages to pants everyone in Camp Kidney, including the Scoutmaster. Eventually, he realizes that it's not only funny to pants other campers, but to pull down his own pants as well. In "The Weakest Link," Edward tricks the Jellybeans into following a map into the wilderness and walking in circles.

Edward often attempts to assert his masculinity and toughness. In "Tomato Paste," Edward tries to earn all the required merit badges to graduate to being a Tomato Scout, a distinction that only the "toughest" Bean Scouts normally achieve. In "Movie Night," he is revealed to be the youngest Bean Scout, and is deemed too young to watch a film rated "BB" for "big boys" only. He attempts to watch the film just minutes before his birthday, and is terrified. However, upon viewing it again a few moments after aging, he loves it like the rest of the campers. It is possible that he has a complex due to always being the youngest, so he always wants to prove that he's tough.

He is also shown to own a doll named Veronica in "Hello Dolly," which he desperately tries to hide from the other campers; after he is discovered cuddling it, he immediately denies owning it and suggests that he blow it up to prove that he doesn't own it; he ends up blowing up a decoy doll made from a pickle and a marshmallow, which fools all of the campers except Lazlo, who is happy to keep the secret.
