Happy New Year is the fifth episode in the HTF Break series.
The HTFs enter a cinema, but Cuddles, Flaky and Russell remain outside. Flaky and Russell are suddenly crushed by Lumpy's van, and Lumpy (presumably) kills Cuddles with the door. Lumpy rushes with a roll of film and puts it in the projector. After watching the few flickering words onscreen, which says "Happy New Year" among other things, the film breaks and the camera shows the crushed remains of Petunia, Nutty, Giggles and Toothy, which was the result of a chandelier knocked loose. The film is wrapped around Lumpy and cuts him into pieces.
- Russell and Flaky are hit and killed by Lumpy's van.
- Cuddles is hit by the van's door (debatable).
- Petunia, Nutty, Giggles and Toothy are crushed by the chandelier (Deaths not shown.)
- Lumpy is cut up by the projector's film.
- Sniffles suddenly disappears just before Lumpy's van crashes.
- Disco Bear's head went in front of the wall, though he was in the background and, therefore, behind the wall.
- The Mole doesn't appear when Lumpy drives into the wall even though he is seen walking in that direction.
- When Cuddles drops his skateboard it disappears before it flies out of view.
- Lifty and Shifty's pupils are white.
- In the wide shot showing the theater's building, the small tree in the background (on the right) overlaps the bigger tree on the foreground.
- Splendid, Flippy, Lammy and Mr. Pickels are the only characters who do not appear in this short.
- No blood can be seen when Flaky, Russell, and Cuddles are crushed.
- This is one of the few episodes where Lumpy's antlers do not swich places.
- This is one of the six episodes where Lifty and Shifty survive. The others are Concrete Solution; Ipso Fatso; Easy Comb, Easy Go; Cheesy Does It; and Youtube Live Episode.
- This is the first and only HTF Break to have more than one death.
- Pop, Lifty, Shifty, The Mole and Mime are the only characters that appeared in more than one HTF Break and survived them all.
- If you look closely on one of the movie posters, there is a poster with Buddhist Monkey on it behind Cuddles, a poster with "Happy Tree Friends & Friends" on it; referencing the show of the same name, and a poster with a Mole In The City style The Mole on it behind Russell
- This is the only Break episode where Lumpy dies.
- Despite the fact that this break called for new episodes, the series went on a hiatus for the whole year making only few other breaks (Take Your Seat, Moppin Up, Bite Sized, and Pop & Corn), all of which said "Happy Tree Friends is dead!", causing some fans to believe that the series could be cancelled. Later in November, the last three breaks (Butter Me Up, Cheesy Does It, and Tunnel Vision) signalled the end of the hiatus and the making of a new full-length episode.
- This has caused some fans to believe Mondo lied to them. Although the video seems to show that the new episodes were coming the following year, not the present year it aired. It also may have wanted the fans to know that the series was not being cancelled, just on a hiatus.
- This is the first HTF Break to take place in a movie theater.
