Eddsworld Halloween Short is an animation created by Edd Gould. It was uploaded to Newgrounds on October 24, 2005 at 8:28 PM EDT and later to DeviantArt on November 10, 2005. It was uploaded to YouTube on March 4, 2016 with edited music.


The short starts with Edd screaming at an incoming object, which then hits him and the title forms from a patch of his blood, thus starting the short.

Edd and Tom bid each other goodbye and start to walk home. While Edd is walking, he gets the feeling that somebody is following him. He then walks into a tall, grim reaper-like figure. The figure then grabs a sledgehammer and hits Edd over the head with it, killing him.

While Tom is walking home, he hears somebody running towards him, but before he can ask, the figure jumps out at him and slices his face off with a sword, killing Tom.

The scene shifts to Tord walking home, minding his own business when suddenly he is sliced in half by a sword. The figure looks over his body and removes his hood, and it turns out to be Matt, who ticks Tord's name off from his revenge list. But suddenly, Ash Williams appears in front of him holding a shotgun, and shouts "Yo, she-bitch! Come get some!" Matt runs at him with two knives, but ends up running into Ash's shotgun and getting his mouth caught around the barrel. Ash then shouts "Swallow this!" and shoots Matt in the mouth, killing him. A random girl appears and hugs him, while he states "Hail to the king, baby!"

The episode then ends and the epilogue states:

"And so Ash slaughtered the fiendish Matt, who wanted revenge on Eddsworld for killing him off so fast in EWZA"


  • When the murderer is revealed to be Matt, the letters "OGM" appear on the screen, a parody of "OMG"
  • This is the first appearance of Ash Williams from the Evil Dead films, he appears again in Zombeh Attack 2 where his head explodes after he picks up a fake necronomicon.
  • The short is loosely related to Zombeh Attack, as the reason Matt killed the Eddsworld crew was because they killed him off so quickly in Zombeh Attack I.
  • This is the first animation in which the entire gang dies on-screen; Edd gets his skull crushed with a hammer, Tom's face is sliced off, Tord gets sliced in half, and Matt, the murderer, is shot in the mouth by Ash Williams.
  • A tradition was started from this Halloween Short to Eddsworld Halloween Special 2007, where Edd gets decapitated at the beginning.
