"Boo Do You Think You Are?" is an episode of the Happy Tree Friends internet series. This is the sixteenth episode of the first season, and the first Halloween episode of the series.
Our first Halloween episode proves that Flaky really does have something to be scared about! A haunted house ride turns a little too real for our Happy gang. Maybe they should have gone trick-or-treating instead!
Giggles, Sniffles, and Flaky all jump into a cart, apparently excited for something. Then it reveals that they're entering a haunted house at the carnival. Giggles and Sniffles are obviously excited, while Flaky is scared. When they enter the building, Sniffles gets startled by a hand that pops out of a coffin, and chuckles. Suddenly, it grabs Sniffles' head, and gives it a hard scratch, cutting up his head and revealing his brain. Giggles screams in terror and she starts whimpering and can barely look away at Sniffles' dead corpse. Giggles doesn't notice that a pendulum swinging back and forth in front of their car. Flaky tries to warn Giggles, but she's still traumatized and she doesn't move. As a result, she gets sliced in half.
Flaky screams in horror and backs into a corner, when suddenly a cauldron suspended above the cart fills it with lava (or molten copper) up to Flaky's waist. In pain, she jumps out of the cart, now with her lower body reduced to a skeleton, screaming. She falls onto the floor. Suddenly, the cart tips over, burning the rest of her body (excluding the top of her head, then her lower jaw falls off). Before the episode ends, a cheap paper ghost drops down beside Flaky's skeleton and lets out a wail.

Quick Shot Moment
Just when the zombie hand grabs Sniffles' head, there's a brief shot of Flaky screaming once she sees Giggles getting sliced in half by the pendulum. (This quick shot moment spoils Giggles' death.)

- If one listens closely when Flaky shakes Giggles before her death, you can hear her say: "Get outta the way!"
