The Love Bites are a series of Valentine's Day-themed Happy Tree Friends shorts.
Love Bites is a series of Happy Tree Friends shorts which last for around a minute each. The graphics and animation are similar to that from the third and fourth seasons of the web series and the TV series. The opening shows a bleeding cracked heart with a bandage attached to the middle of the crack and a green arrow pierced through it with the words "Happy Tree Friends" without the original Happy Tree Friends opening theme song. Each episode of Love Bites stars two main characters (male and female) on a romantic date which quickly goes horribly wrong.
Unlike the main show and the Kringles, the morals used in every episode are phrases usually said in relationships about to end, like "We don't see eye to eye anymore".
