“My folks want me to be more, you know, independent, I guess. They even hooked me up with this life coach dude. I guess he's gonna help me find my purpose in life. Thought I had one, but turns out, it wasn't the right one or something, I don't know.”
–Eddie, telling Buster how his parents decided to hook him up with a life coach
Eddie is an anthropomorphic white Suffolk sheep. He has brown eyes and small teeth that are not visible. His body and face are dark gray and his fleece is white. He wears a yellow sleeveless shirt and a red jacket with orange pants. He also wears black sandals with white socks.
As seen from the trailers, he is seemingly the complete opposite to Buster Moon's optimistic outlook and doubtful about the future of his best friend's theater. He tends to be lazy and likes to lie around, play video games, and eat junk food. He generally doesn't like having to visit his Nana as she is usually mean to him.
Despite trying to bring Buster back down to earth and being totally ignored or his realistic perspective disregarded, Eddie shows true loyalty to his friend by helping him with his short-lived car washing business by drying cars, and even helps by setting up a makeshift open-air theater so Buster and his singers have a place to perform. Under Meena's tutelage, Eddie quickly becomes a competent stagehand and works the lights and sound effects, even enjoying the headphones that come with the job.
Eddie is the proverbial black sheep of his wealthy family. After years of being spoiled and pampered, his parents have recently forced him to live in the pool house in a desperate attempt to make him live a more independent life. There, he spends most days swimming, playing video games, and begrudgingly doing mandatory household chores assigned by a life coach to inspire maturity. Despite his somewhat rudderless existence, Eddie's a lovable and loyal friend who will help Buster get back on his feet at his most desperate moment.
“A singing competition? Who wants to see another one of those?”
“Buster, what do you expect? She's like 200 years old.”
–Eddie, to Buster on Miss Crawly's mistake on the flyers
“Look, maybe it's time to stop thinking, and it's time to just move on. I mean, this theater of yours, you could get some decent money for it and... I don't know, maybe we could do something together.”
“This show is not gonna save your theater! You're at rock bottom, pal!”
