Edward and Eric's shorts are a series of animated shorts that aired during commercial breaks on Kids' WB throughout 1996 to 1997 as a way to persuade Warner Bros. to pitch the series, shortly after Gary Sauls had already pitched Pilot to the company. They aired again throughout 2000 before stopping in 2001, although once the show debuted on Boomerang in 2005, the shorts occasionally aired there during intermissions until 2008.

Every single short is available on Edward and Eric: The Complete Series' 15th disc.


  • Here is a list of differences between the shorts and the actual series:
    • Edward's favorite food is peanut butter ketchup and tuna sandwiches as opposed to frog legs.
    • The animation is a lot more rough than Season 1.
    • Carver's name is Simon.
    • Instead of having title cards, the title of a short merely appears at the bottom of the screen once the short begins.
