HTF! Third Strike Rules!!!!!
11 November 2005 | by mimesrscarymeSee all my reviews

This was by far the best of the happy tree friends DVDs. It was an inspiration to my internal Psyche. It transfixed my senses and took me on a spiritual journey... OK, not exactly spiritual... and not a journey per say... OK OK OK it was just plain sick and twisted fun!!! I own all three DVDs and I highly recommend them to all non babies. This DVD takes the cake and hits other people in the face with it... well the part it already didn't eat... anyways, this DVD is by far the best in the HTF collection, I know it inspired me! The crew did an amazing job at animating, voicing over, and the graphics are far superior to the last movies. I will continue to do reviews on all new happy tree friend movies. (shuder) I can hardly wait!
