Happy Tree Friends (HTF) is an American adult flash-animated black comedy series created and developed by Aubrey Ankrum, Rhode Montijo, Kenn Navarro and Warren Graff for Mondo Media. The show is cited as an example of achieving a cult following. It is also infamous for its notable look of looking like a kids show, when in reality, it is a violent adult cartoon. The series is currently on hiatus; it is not known when or if it will ever come back, as the most recent episodes were released back in 2016.

Story

The show revolves around a bunch of animal friends who live in a forest where they get into unexpected situations where they are killed (but come back alive in the next episode).

Why It Rocks

  1. Smooth, detailed animation, especially when it made an improvement starting in Season 3, as well as the TV series.
  2. Episodes can be funny to watch every now and then, like Mime to Five.
  3. Some of the deaths are really creative (if over-the-top and overboard), and they had nice reference to Final Destination series.
  4. Creative writing.
  5. Decent voice acting, especially for Kenn Navarro, Nica Lorber, etc, despite the characters only speaking gibberish and occasionally jumbled Engligh.
  6. The role models of the Happy Tree Friends characters, are pretty good and diverse as they have their own problems and personality:
    • Cuddles is a likable, yellow rabbit with pink cheeks who inexplicably wears Pink Bunny Slippers. He is a cheerful, happy, excited little bunny that he likes, such as to play rock n roll in the episodes, In A Jam, riding a roller-coaster with his friends in The Wrong Side of the Tracks, and going on a water slide in Let It Slide.
    • Giggles is a happy, shy, and a pink chipmunk that she loves to frolicking through flowers, having tea parties with Petunia, ice skating, and has a sweet demeanor. Her name comes from her habit of giggling often.
    • Petunia, is a beautiful dark-blue skunk with a sky-blue arrow marking on her forehead, She always wears a pink flower on top of her head and a pine scent car air freshener or deodorizer around her neck.
    • Flaky is also pretty likable as she is a shy, red porcupine whose quills are full of white flake-like dandruff, thus her name. She's one of the most popular characters in the series and she has the identifiable personality of a very cautious and timid character, which is understandable considering that Happy Tree Friends live in constant danger of being brutally killed.
  7. Nice background music, even the darker soundtrack when the episode goes terrifying.
  8. The show is like an adult-oriented PBS cartoon. Not only that but also, this was inspired by The Itchy and Scratchy Show in The Simpsons, which by itself is a parody of Tom and Jerry.
  9. The characters are actually quite adorable, even if they end up getting horribly killed nearly every episode.

Bad Qualities

  1. Since the series seems like a traditional kids show, it could easily be mistaken for one. A child could see this series and get scared or traumatized.
  2. Some unlikable characters such as Pop and the Ant Family.
    • Depending on how you view Lumpy, his stupidity can be either funny or repetitive. His stupidity can also lead to him getting himself or other characters getting killed.
  3. Episodes can be badly done or varied in being decent or mediocre.
  4. The earlier episodes usually didn't really have actual plots, it wasn't until around season 2 the plots became better, which the TV series solidified.
  5. Some of the gore or crude humor can go beyond being funny sometimes.
    • The humor can be predictable or unrealistically gory.
    • There can be too much gore, violence and unpleasant, gruesome imagery. Along with having relentless murdering gore shown in this show can make this show painful to watch at times.
  6. There was a special video made for YouTube called "YouTube Copyright School" but unlike other Happy Tree Friends episodes, it got more dislikes than likes, amassing 31K likes and more than 90K dislikes. It is played every time a user gets a copyright strike.

Trivia

  • In the 2002 movie Good Girl, the show can be seen on the television.
  • Because of its very huge cult following, it has gained multiple types of merchandise.

This show is completely horrendous! It's a "bait-and-switch", and the reason I said it is because at first it looks cute, but then it turns dark and inappropriate.

I'm also suprised that this wasn't on the TerribleTvShows wiki cause this belongs there, I don't even get it.

I still do respect those who like this show, but why is this placed as a good show? Other than it's good qualities, its not a good show tho.

It was because people kept adding baseless nitpicks. And Shenanigans, why do you think we're, like, literally the only ones who like it or at least part of a minority? If you dislike it, that's fine. But don't say its fandom is actually this "vocal minority".

It's also niche because it's for adults. Don't conflate "niche" with "preschool-only" or "girls-only".

Reasons why this "show" sucks (its ok if you like it)

  1. No plot. At all. All the show is is LOLLL ANIMAL DIES FUNNIE
  2. Characters aren't interesting. They're either annoying, one-dimensional,or no personality at all.
  3. Not funny. I get bored before the 1st 30 seconds.
  4. The characters NEVER. SHUT. UP. This relates to the "annoying" point.
  5. "Creative Writing" yeah right.
  6. While the animation is fine sometimes, the movements are sometimes robotic, not to mention a lot of animation errors that are pretty inexcusable.
I don't give 2 shits if it's meant to be like that. The show fucking sucks, to me at least.

When I was little I used watch this show and I'm to dumb to know what going on...

But now I realized there are alot of disturbing (yet kind of funny dark humor for adults) death scenes and scary moments.

I Used to be a HTF Fan but I realized this show was made for adults and I also got disturbed by it.
