"Shy and sweet, this little chipmunk's trademark is her bubbly and giggly personality."
―"Collect them All" card info[src]

Giggles is one of the main characters in Happy Tree Friends, and one of the four primary characters of the show, along with Cuddles, Toothy, and Lumpy.

Character Bio

Giggles is a pink chipmunk who has a white diamond-shaped marking, a white oval on her torso, and wears a big red bow on her head. She has the personality of a young girl, as she enjoys frolicking through flowers, having tea parties with Petunia, ice skating, and having a shy and sweet demeanor. Her name comes from her habit of giggling often. She appears to be allergic to roses which were revealed in her Valentines Smoochie. Giggles is one of the primary characters who is just a lonely girl. She becomes Cuddles' girlfriend. She may have also been one of the first characters to be created along with Lifty and Shifty.

Giggles is a very affectionate character and is often seen hugging, kissing, and playing with the other characters. However, she does not seem to be really compatible with Flippy (even if they were seen dating in On My Mind). She's also been seen with others characters. She was supposed to go on the Love Bites episode Cold Hearted she was seen with Cro-Marmot. She is best friends with Petunia, as seen in Eyes Cold Lemonade and Gems the Breaks where both seem to run a lemonade stand together. She is also good friends with Lumpy, usually being seen in quite a few episodes with him.

Her deaths usually involve being crushed, her chest or her head (mostly sliced off, or somethings are ripped out of it). One of her most gruesome injuries is in Eyes Cold Lemonade where her face is sliced off by a sign and lemonade is spat in her face (by Petunia). Despite this, she doesn't die in the aforementioned episode.

In the episode Every Litter Bit Hurts, Giggles is shown to have an environmentalist personality, as she constantly got mad at Lumpy for doing things that harmed the environment, such as him dumping the trash in his garbage truck into the lake, tossing dynamite into the lake to catch fish, and cutting down a tree just to make a toothpick.

She is also considered as a damsel in distress. When she's in trouble, Splendid usually comes to the rescue, but injures or kills her in the process. For example, in From Hero to Eternity, Splendid explodes Cuddles and ruptures Giggles' eardrums. In another example, he accidentally decapitates her in Helping Helps while trying to rescue her from a flood. But on occasion, she can act the hero, like in Dunce Upon a Time , where she tries but fails to rescue the other characters destined for a gruesome fate. 

Even though she dies a lot like Cuddles and Toothy, she has survived in Stayin' Alive (debatable), Happy Trails pt. 1, Tongue Twister Trouble, Eyes Cold Lemonade, From Hero to Eternity(debatable) We're Scrooged, Out of Sight, Out of Mime, I Get a Trick Out of You, Concrete Solution, Let it Slide, Ipso Fatso, As You Wish, Easy Comb, Easy Go, A Change of Heart, Ski Ya, Wouldn't Wanna Be Ya!
