Throughout the entirety of Happy Tree Friends the characters have suffered in very illogical ways. Sometimes, however, the show will have a death that could actually happen in reality and therefore, go against complete cartoon logic.

Note: The scenario of the death has to be realistic as well. E.g. A character could really die in a plane engine like Cuddles in Spin Fun Knowin' Ya, but a merry-go-round couldn't make a person fly into one.

Cuddles

  1. This Is Your Knife: Cuddles has his face bashed with a rock and then has his body cut open and his intestine yanked out by Fliqpy.
    Kringle Karols

    Death by icicles are surprisingly more common than you think.

  2. Class Act: Dies in a school explosion.
  3. I Get a Trick Out of You: Lumpy removes his IV, and he dies from blood loss. It should've taken longer for Cuddles to die, but the death alone could still happen.
  4. Remains to be Seen: Is hit by a truck.
  5. Kringle Feast: Dies in an explosion caused by a gas leak.
  6. Kringle Karols: Is impaled in the face by an icicle.
  7. Pet Smoochie: In his clean option, he drowns from the screen filling up with water, even though it would've taken longer for him to die in real life.
  8. The Wrong Side of the Tracks: Dies from blood loss after losing his arms, though in reality it would take longer for a human to die.
  9. And the Kitchen Sink: Is hit by Pop's SUV.
  10. Concrete Solution: An ambulance crashes into his car.
  11. Home Is Where the Hurt Is: Is knocked into a wood slicer.
  12. Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow: Is shredded by the tail of a helicopter. While there has never been a death caused by a helicopter tail, it could happen.
  13. The Carpal Tunnel of Love: Is impaled through the throat by a wooden pole.
  14. New Season Teaser: Is shot in the head several times by Fliqpy.

Giggles

  1. Snow What? That's What!: Is impaled in the eyes and throat by icicles.
    Userbox Giggles

    One of the least cartoony deaths in the entire show.

  9. Idol Curiosity: Drowns in shipwreck.
  10. Aw, Shucks!: Is caught in barbed wire and drowns.

  13. New Season Teaser: Stabbed through the mouth with a knife by Fliqpy.
  14. Breaking Wind: Is hit by Handy's out-of-control truck.
