Storyline

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, Sniffles the brainy anteater, Lumpy the moose, Toothy the beaver, Giggles the Chipmunk, Handy the handless carpenter beaver, Petunia the sweet-smelling skunk, Nutty the glass-eyed sweets-loving squirrel, Splendid the flying super-squirrel, Russell the pirate, the ever-dancing Disco Bear, Flippy the war veteran bear with constant flashbacks, Pop the pipe-smoking father bear and his cub Cub, Lifty the kleptomaic raccoon, Shifty, his partner in crime and of course the Mole - also blind as one. Together, they experience life at its worst in their cute little world. And they teach us all a lesson of what can go wrong, no matter how cute you are or how hard you try.

The Same joke, over more than 30 episodes
5 January 2006 | by fleaaaaaaSee all my reviews

The cute (but awkwardly annoying) happy tree friends animals die in a variety of different ways. It may have worked if it had even a dose of intelligence, but unfortunately it doesn't. The deaths are predictable rather than surprising and edgy, the results are always the same. It's probably funny once or twice, or if you have a sick sense of humour you will probably like it (especially if your under 18) but otherwise give this a miss and search for some more worthwhile animated shows.

Such as: The Simpsons, Futurama, Family Guy, Ren and Stimpy (for gross and lewd), Beavis and Butthead (immature fun), Daria etc........

Anyway the next few lines are superfluous as my review is not long enough but if torturing fluffy animals is your bag then buy this. It'll fill the time between waiting for the hamster to finish cooking in the microwave and the minute your parents arrive home to find a bloody mess that they now have to clean up.
