They're cute, they're happy, they're cuddly, they love life, and they die in the most gruesome ways - every single episode. Meet Cuddles the rabbit, Flakey the dandruff-ridden porcupine, ... See full summary »
Happy Tree Friends is sick. Sick I tell you. Such a sadistic, depraved, repugnant assault on the moral fabric of society is straight from the bowels of Hell and must be resisted at every turn.
There are cute little cartoon animals. They look adorable, and have cute little names like Nutty and Toothy and Lumpy. And in almost every episode, one or more of them dies horribly. Horribly, graphically and slowly.
Man, I love this show.
Have you ever been dragged out by a child or girlfriend or whatever to see a film with cutsey, goody-two-shoes characters that you simply can't care about? That try as you might to give half a damn about them, you literally cant? Do you find that you side with the bad guys more often than not? Then 'Happy Tree Friends' is the show for you. Bad taste in your mouth after your kids drag you out to see yet another Pixar film? Slap on 'Happy Tree Friends' and laugh as Lumpy the Moose has his leg trapped under a tree and has to amputate it... with a spoon. Relax as Handy the Beaver accidentally chews a lightbulb. Giggle as Flaky the Porcupine gets trapped in a floor buffer and her quills fly out in all directions, impaling those around her. It's great fun.
There is blood. Lots of it. Really, kids shouldn't watch this. And I seriously mean that. But for those of us who aren't kids, 'Happy Tree Friends' is disturbingly enjoyable.
