His animations were one of the few videos that made me enjoy flash animations. It really sucks to lose a great person at such young age. RIP Edd

I feared years ago that one day something like this would happen to the NG community, and here it is.

I have never seen any of Edd's movies up until recently, but it is clear he was clearly an inspiring artist to this community, and I hate it when people with creative and artistic brains die, for it is as if a piece of the world itself dies. Cancer is a terrible disease, and it is not anything that any one person deserves. But we can take great comfort in knowing that he doesn't have to suffer any longer.

I do know without a fact his legend will live on because of us. Artists like Da Vinci and Picaso are legends to this day because we are inspired by them, and I have no doubt that Edd will be looked at as something similar, for animators like Edd Gould are what inspired me to start doing my own flash creations over a decade ago.

A standing ovation to our universe for creating such a fabulously talented, inspiring, and brave man.

Son of a bitch! I've been a fan of Edd's since around the time he first showed up on here. I know it's weird, but I'm more pissed than I am heartbroken.

If I find out that Chris of Greasy Moose ever dies... I might just go on a rampage.

Response to Edd Gould, 1988-2012 2012-03-28 15:18:03


I've seen some of Edd's stuff. Funny guy. May he rest in peace. It's terrible how all these flash artists are dying like this.


I laugh at your sigs!

Response to Edd Gould, 1988-2012 2012-03-28 15:24:20


RIP Edd. One of the first animators I came across on the site and by far one of the best I've seen to this day. Awra best to the Gould family.

Response to Edd Gould, 1988-2012 2012-03-28 15:26:38


First Randy, and now Edd? What is going on here?

Rest in Peace Edd, and bless him and his loved ones.

RIP EDD <3

Response to Edd Gould, 1988-2012 2012-03-28 15:32:52


I can't believe he died...
He was always one of my favourite animators, incredibly talented and definitely a big inspiration for me. He was way too young to die...
Newgrounds will never be the same without him. RIP Edd.


Intellectually Questionable? You decide.

Response to Edd Gould, 1988-2012 2012-03-28 15:32:49


I cant belive it.
He inspired me to animate, because of him I joined newgrounds.
He died way to young. I will miss him very much:,(
I will never forget you Edd.
Thanks and rest in peace.

Response to Edd Gould, 1988-2012 2012-03-28 15:34:06


Oh my god...I didn't think he would die.

I just lost motivation to do anything today...

Can't believe this, really makes you realize death can happen at any time :( So young, and so much more stuff to make. This and Randy dying is giving me severe anxiety lately, any time it can all be snatched away.. and all the work and effort, just stopped in it's tracks. Thankfully we have NG and the internet to remember him.

Something else that is great, is that he made stuff so now when people he knew look back, they can see a piece of him in his work. There's a record, of how he thought and what he thought was funny,a record of his hours of toiling away alone, working on his flashes. I imagine a lot of people pass away and all anyone has left are photos... but since he created something, he lives on in his work, everyone here does.

Edd was always one of my favorite animators when I first saw his stuff in 2010. 2010 was a depressing year for me since I hated moving to my still crappy apartment. My brother introduced me to Edd's videos in the summer of 2010, and I've still been a big fan of him. When I learned in winter of 2010, when Ed, had luekemia, I was really sad. His stuff has always brighten up my day, making me feel good, all the time. I will always remember him, as a guy I looked up to.
R.I.P Edd Gould.

We are FANS of Eddsworld. We all kept him Cool. He was a very punny guy. We'll miss him.

Man this is such a shame. I was really hoping to meet him one day at a London meet. They don't seem so appealing anymore.

Genuinely feel very saddened by this, I never even knew he was ill, I thought it was a joke at first.

Here's hoping Eddsworld keeps going on strong.

Response to Edd Gould, 1988-2012 2012-03-28 15:54:30


Well, I first watched the sad news on YouTube and wasn't expecting Newgrounds to reply. I was wrong. But Edd wouldn't want you to just sit and cry. He would want people to continue enjoying his work, beacuse that's what he animated for. He will be missed. </3

This is sad, considering the fact that his animations were keeping me entertained and happy for the past 3-4 years.
He will be missed. One of the best animators.

Sugar Sugar made me try animation 4 years ago. Even though I never really got into animating, I had a lot of fun trying it with my friends and it kept me around Newgrounds. Damn, RIP Edd.

Tom and Matt are good people for telling us something us like this. I'm sorry it had to end this way for Gould.
However, I do have to ask: could this be the end of Eddsworld?
