It's our boyfriends!
~ The Kanker Sisters catchphrase upon seeing the Eds.

The Kanker Sisters are the main antagonists of the Cartoon Network original series Ed, Edd n Eddy and the secondary antagonists, later anti-heroes of it's 2009 television movie Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show. They are a trio of sisters who live in the trailer park in the outer portions of Peach Creek are the most infamous inhabitants of the cul-de-sac. They strike fear into the hearts of all the kids and are the fears of the Eds, the latter of which they have huge crushes on and constantly seek after whenever they appear in an episode.

Lee was voiced by Janyse Jaud, Marie was voiced by Kathleen Barr (who also voiced Kevin from the same series), and May was voiced by Erin Fitzgerald (Seasons 1-2, 4-6) and Jenn Forgie (Season 3).

Personality

Each of them have a crush on the Eds (blonde May being into soft-headed Ed, blue-haired Marie being into intelligent Edd/Double D, and redhead Lee being into irascible Eddy) and are the cruel, merciless, sadistic, and unkind bullies of Peach Creek, attacking everyone in the cul-de-sac to no end.

The origins of the Kankers are convoluted. While they are definitively sisters and all live together, they appear to have three different fathers but only one mother. This seems to suggest that they are actually half-sisters, sharing a mother but each having a different father, which would explain the lack of physical resemblance between them and live in a trailer.

Biography

They were introduced in "Nagged to Ed". They live in the "Park n' Flush" Trailer Park. Although they are obsessed with the Eds, they still torment, tease, and torture them, although usually in an exaggerated "lovey dovey" way. However, it didn't help that the Eds were particularly demanding of them in said first appearance though the Kankers' response still counts as Disproportionate Retribution especially as the series went on.

Many episodes conclude with the Eds encountering unwanted kisses from them or by harassing them. While all three sisters apparently love all of the Eds, May prefers Ed, Marie prefers Edd, and Lee prefers Eddy, though Eddy seems to be the most tormented of the three. For obvious reasons, the majority of the cul-de-sac seem to fear them. The Kankers' idea of a vacation is a trip with their trailer to Eddy's house. On other occasions, they have shown incredible strength and brutality, such as when they literally caused the Cul-De-Sac to break apart when searching for their lost ship-in-a-bottle (taken by a sleepwalking Ed), rendering it into a scene out of a post-apocalyptic film. However Rolf managed to be unaffected by this as he hid when he saw his farm animals sensing the coming danger.

The Kankers are essentially the equals of the Eds, who cycle through feelings of love and hate for them. Sometimes, they become manic possessive towards the Eds; other times, they will simply yearn for romance; and sometimes they simply abuse them. At first, the Kankers appeared to be kind-hearted, performing domestic services for the Eds such as cooking and washing clothes. However, when the Eds began to push their luck, the Kankers felt rejected and felt the compulsion to torment the Eds ever since.

The lives of the Kanker sisters apparently revolves around activities such as painting their toenails, stylizing their hair, and reading such literature as Hub Cap Digest. Their trailer holds a large amount of nautical-themed items, such as "Fish Bowl 2", a stuffed swordfish, an anchor, a diver's helmet, and a ship in a bottle, which is a prized possession. These sharply constrast with advertisements for car parts, a perfume of their own design called "Krankshaft No.5," and a penchant for wrestling each other.

Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show

The Kanker Sisters act as the secondary antagonists and later, anti-heroes in the film. During the film, the Kankers first appear when Jimmy and Sarah try to seek out the Eds with the hopes of watching them get beaten. The Kankers started tormenting Jimmy and then Sarah who tried to protect him until Jimmy reveals the other Cul-De-Sac residents' intent to hunt down the Eds. Determined to save their "boyfriends", the Kankers force Jimmy and Sarah to cart them along the path earlier taken by the Eds. Sarah and Jimmy barely manage to escape the Kanker Sisters, leaving the three to relentless pursue them.

Along the way, the Kankers capture Kevin, Nazz, and Rolf in an attempt to "save" the Eds. Once they find the Eds at the trailer of Eddy's Brother, they prepare to assault the Eds once more until they're cut off by the appearance of Eddy's Brother. Like the other kids, the Kanker Sisters are horrified by Eddy's Brother's abusive treatment of Eddy, with May and Marie holding back an enraged Lee. After Eddy's Brother's defeat by Ed unhinging the screen door of the trailer, the Kankers are last seen dragging Eddy's Brother's unconscious body into the trailer with amorous intents.

Sisters

Lee

Lee is the oldest of the sisters and is the most dominant and imperative of the trio. She is also the most aggressive, the most ruthless and gets angry very easily. She often tells her sisters what to do, where to go and plays the role of leader. She is very dangerous when she gets angry because she won't think rationally. She likes Eddy, who just like her gets easily angry.

Marie

Marie is the middle of the sisters and is considered to be the smartest. Unlike Lee, Marie thinks more often and tries to think about the next move instead of acting on impulse. However, this doesn't change the fact that she easily gets mad when something really upsets her. She can also be extremly jealous. Marie can paint rather nicely which can mean that her hobby is painting. She has the shortest hair which has an unique blue color. She likes Edd, who, apart from the intellect, is her complete opposite.

May

May is the youngest of the sisters and is a "stereotypical blonde". May is very cheerful, but also naive and not very smart. She is also the "nicest" of the sisters, but when something upsets her she can fall into a big frenzy. Despite her stupidity, May has extensive knowledge in the field of chemistry. She likes Ed, who like her is not very smart and extremly playful. Unlike her older sisters, May really likes Ed, not the idea of tormenting him because she wanted to give him a valentine for Valentine's Day of her own free will and when he turned it down she was devastated and cried all alone.

Trivia

  • A creepypasta was written by a fan who interprets that the Cul-de-sac is Purgatory. Stating that all the children are dead, and that the Kanker Sisters are demons sent by the devil from Hell to torture the children. They also have normal colored tongues, which means they couldn't be dead, but something different (since the other kids of the cul-de-sac have different colored tongues). They are attracted to the Eds either because the Eds are weakest-willed kids of the cul-de-sac or they each symbolize a certain Deadly Sin.
  • The Kanker Sisters were initially thought to be the main antagonists of Ed, Edd n Eddy's Big Picture Show, having already played the role of main antagonists in the series. However, they were outranked and relegated to secondary antagonist and later anti-heroes with the appearance of Eddy's Brother, who proved to be more dangerous and abusive than them.
