The Best of the Worst (formerly, The Legacy of Tom and Edd) was a webcomic series created by Edd Gould (1988-2012) in 2004, the comics were most likely a predecessor/prototype for what later became the official Eddsworld comics. The only remaining comics that have been shown on the internet are comics 1 and 2.

This webcomic should not be confused with a short-lived 1991 Fox TV show with the same name.


The Best of the Worst #1 consisted of Edd shouting “Oh my god! My hair is on fire!” and Tom responding with “Oh my god! A squirrel” the final panel shows a squirrel and Edd growling at tom.

The Best of the Worst #2 started with Tom saying, “for Halloween, let’s dress-up as the scariest thing ever”. The second panel shows Edd and Tom applying masks and the final panel shows Edd wearing a Tom mask and Tom wearing a mask of Edd. Edd responds with “So this is what we think of one another”


There are two reasons and/or speculations for the lack of the other comics being released to the internet. The main reason/speculation being that Edd was most likely working on Eddsworld animations and didn’t want to stall for time uploading any old comics he had created. The second reason/speculation is during the time when Eddsworld was still being formed (late 2004-early 2005), Edd was going through some computer troubles meaning that he had to get his computer fixed.[1][2] When computers are usually sent to be fixed (Mainly due to viruses or malfunctions), the hard drives get wiped has a new OS freshly installed or on some occasions, the hard drive gets replaced. The latter is probably the reason why the other comics haven't been released.
