Biography

Happy Tree Friends is a Flash cartoon series by Mondo Mini Shows, created by Kenn Navarro, Aubrey Ankrum and Rhode Montijo.

As indicated on the official site, the show is “not recommended for small children or big babies.” In contrast with the cuteness of its characters, the show is highly violent. Nearly every episode features the violent and bloody death of at least one character, with the exception of two episodes: “Out on a Limb” and “Nuttin’ but the Tooth” but still had blood and gore and a character who would have possibly died of blood loss. While the violence of these deaths is comparable to those of Scratchy from The Itchy and Scratchy Show (a short cartoon featured on The Simpsons), and of Kenny McCormick of South Park, the Happy Tree Friends deaths are significantly more graphic and drawn out. Also like Kenny and Scratchy, the characters return in later episodes.

The show is nearly free of dialogue; when the characters do speak, their words are severely garbled. Though the creators make it obvious to the viewer what each character’s reaction is, their words can barely be understood.

According to the website, the idea for Happy Tree Friends was conceived by Rhode Montijo when he drew a yellow rabbit (a bit looking like Cuddles) on a piece of paper and wrote “Resistance Is Futile” underneath it.
