I had no idea he was going through this. I can't imagine enjoying a 'normal' life while fighting cancer, let alone producing animations regularly. What a testament to his character, he will be missed.

Poor Edd.... 23 is not a good age to die at, especially for one as talented and funny as he was. I did not know him, but I did know his work, as I'm sure most here did, and it was evident he was an excellent animator, funny, and from the videos I saw of him, a very nice person in general. I wish the best for his family and friends at this time.

My friend told me in school today that he died. I was so sad. He was an amazing animator with an amazing sense of humour. He seemed like such a great guy and it's a shame he's gone. He left an astounding amount of great animations though. I don't think I've ever not liked one of his animation. R.I.P. Edd Gould.

Randy Solem. Edd Gould. Davy Jones. I'm finally starting to see why 2012 in the end of the world.

Rest in peace Edd, your flashes were all time favorites of mine, I wish your family all the best.

First Randy, now Edd. Not a lot of people here knew that Edd had cancer, it wasn't really something he talked about much. It feels strange, because I interviewed him not too long ago an he looked and sounded like he was doing well. It truly is sad to see him go.

Awww... so sad to see this. :( To be honest, I had no idea Edd was battling cancer until about a year ago. I can't help but think of all the awesome cartoons and music he submitted over the years: so many laughs, so many memories. :) Edd Gould is a very inspirational guy, if you ask me. Despite his illness, look what he gave us all to enjoy for nearly 10 years? Wow!

I remember when I released my first original composition to the Audio Portal back in 2010. Gadzooks was I surprised to read through the comments on a recent News Post of mine at the time and see a Comment from Edd Gould!

His words?

"HULK HATE FURRIES

Haha, just kidding- but i liked the track :D" -Eddsworld, 11/26/10

Here's the original News post. just in case anyone wants to see for themselves: http://drmackfoxx.newgrounds.com/news/post/540832

May not seem like much, but it meant a lot to me for him to take the time to check out my first original song and even leave some feedback about it. :)

Thank you, Edd Gould. Rest in peace. You will be greatly missed.

My prayers are with his family and friends.

I really don't have much to say, but I'll say this. I was not an avid watcher of his flash movies, but the ones I've seen were entertaining and I thought the guy was talented in what he did. Still... the guy was two years younger than me and nobody deserves to die that young.

I did not know of his six cancer battle until now, and now I respect the hell out of him for still doing what he loved to do even though he had to deal with cancer at the same time. Everyone should look up to him for doing that whether you like his flash or not.

It's a shame that two flash authors have left us so recently. Rest in peace Edd.

One more voice of support from Japan.

Cancer is a messed up thing. It's taken other people in my life far before their time.

Let's all remember Edd for the many lives he touched, instead of dwelling on what he wasn't able to finish in his time here. He would want it that way, selfless as he is.

And I thought that he was beating cancer. They said he had really high chances... First Randy, and now Edd. I really don't want to believe this and want to see Edd upload another silly cartoon, which I would then watch with my friends...

Rest In Peace, dear Edd, you were fantastic and will always continue to be.

Only 23 years old, Edd had accomplished so much. He wasn't just one of NG's most popular contributors of all time, he was one of the most popular animators in the history of the Internet, with a huge following everywhere he went.

Edd's friends Tom and Matt have put together a video dedicated to Edd. Please take a moment to watch the video and then enjoy some of Edd's movies:

There are way too many great ones to list in one post. Check out Edd's movies page for nearly a decade of animation.

It's depressing to think about all the great movies Edd had yet to bring us but also totally inspiring that he accomplished so much in 23 short years. In less than a decade Edd achieved more than most people could dream of achieving in their entire lives. He also did it while being totally humble and kind the entire time. Edd was a truly amazing human being and we're gonna miss him greatly.

In the past week we've lost Randy Solem, Luccas Bode and now Edd. None of us knows how much time we have left so if you have a dream of your own, don't keep waiting for the right moment; the moment is now.

this is insane....

i know this sounds crazy but i hope that it is just a aprils fool joke.

i mean it is just a few days to april fools.

but if it is not then im very sad and there is going to be a big edd shaped hole where my animation heart is.

so funny so unique. and i dont think someone would joke about dying from cancer, so i take that back before i get curse outs..

but damn..............damn damn damn....................

So sad..i knew about his cancer but never thought it would beat him. R.I.P Edd.
I like to think he made quite a difference in the world with the little time he had. He is a true inspiration and like Tom said, none of us know how much time we have, so we have to stop being lazy or cowardice and go pursue our dreams. NOW.

i second that...

someone so young so funny?

but what would the catigory be and what would an animator or writer have to do to get it?

some bizzar humor or cutting edge thing? it would really be hard to follow.

so idk
