Happy Tree Friends is a show that started as a internet shorts that became very popular and gained it's own TV series that now aires on G4. Every episode features cute innocent cuddly animals getting slaughtered in the most gruesome ways possible. The internet shorts were about 3 minutes long so the writers didn't have much time to tell a story so they usually went to the violence really fast but in the TV seven minute episodes the writers are able to tell a nice story in which a character faces a normal problem and tries to solve it and always while trying to solve that problem the character would cause the other's character's deaths and it's own. Some characters like Cuddles, Toothy and Sniffles die in almost every episode they featured in so you can predict that they are going to die while other characters like Flippy and Splendid rarely die so the writers sometimes try to surprise fans when they kill these characters. The animation is done in flash and it takes about 6 months to do and it's really good and impressive for a non-mainstream cartoon. Even though the show makes me sick sometimes I still find it really funny and addictive and I think anyone with a twisted sense of humor will enjoy it. I the other hand anyone with an innocent sense of humor and weak stomach should stay away.
I give this funny show a 9.5
