- "This big, blue moose is all heart... and all thumbs! He'll be sure to keep you in stitches!"
- ―"Collect them All" card info[src]
He is a light blue moose with low I.Q., bad teeth (although they are clear white), distorted eyes and mismatched antlers. He is known to be the big brother, or perhaps the babysitter of many of the other characters. He usually means well but he's clumsy and extremely stupid. Furthermore, he screams like a girl. His usual catchphrase is "Mmm-hmm!" when he thinks he solved a problem or when he is satisfied.
Although Lumpy is normally portrayed a good character, he can be portrayed as an evil character at times. While he generally never kills anyone by design, he is portrayed evil for the first time in Dunce Upon a Time. However the first episode he killed another character intentionally was Happy Trails Pt. 2: Jumping the Shark. A famous example of Lumpy's antagonistic side is in We're Scrooged, where he is shown to be quite greedy and has done some wrong-doings such as stealing a coin from Mole and intentionally killing Toothy to sell his body parts. This is one of the few times where Lumpy has deliberately done wrongful actions for his own gain, as in most cases, they are done because of his stupidity. One of the other notable cases is in Every Litter Bit Hurts, where he is seen dumping garbage into a lake, among doing other harmful acts toward the environment.
Lumpy has unique design in compared to other most characters, as he is the only character with a standard nose and two nostrils (all of the smaller Happy Tree Friends except Sniffles and Truffles have heart-shaped noses). He is one of two characters (along with Handy) whose hands don't turn mitten-esque. He is also one of the only characters without Pac-Man-shaped pupils (along with Mole, Lifty & Shifty (In later episodes), Nutty, Evil Flippy, and Cro-Marmot). Lumpy has appeared in the most episodes out of all the Tree Friends, and most fans consider him the odd one out due to his height and lack of a normal Happy Tree Friend style face. There were some arguments about his appearance being too close to "Bullwinkle" and "Montgomery Moose", the group's leader of The Get-Along Gang, so his right antler was drawn upside down. He's a hillbilly judging by his voice, his lifestyle, and the clothes he sometimes wears.
Lumpy has had many occupations in many episodes, including teacher, farmer, bus driver, convenience store clerk, police officer, to name a few. He is usually a fill-in character like Wooldoor Sockbat from Drawn Together. He is often shown in tremendously incongruous situations, such as lounging lazily, shirtless, and in a hammock, while the rest of the Happy Tree Friends gang are playing in the snow, as seen in Snow What? That's What!. He is also the tallest main character standing about twice as tall as all the other characters. The only characters to match him in height have been minor characters, such as Giggles' Mom, or Ka-Pow! characters, like the Tiger General.
Lumpy by far has the series' highest kill count. His low intelligence is often the cause of other characters' deaths, and sometimes his own. In fact, Lumpy has caused the death of every character at least once, except for Splendid. Cuddles is, so far, Lumpy's most frequent victim. Lumpy's deaths usually involve impalement, explosions, dismemberment, getting crushed, or animals. Due to his strength and size, he tends to survive more punishment before finally dying compared to the other tree friends. As a result, his deaths are usually extremely painful. Lumpy often has a habit of falling off of high places, (Dunce Upon A Time, All Flocked Up, Concrete Solution, Take A Hike, Letter Late Than Never, Wingin' It). He mostly lives in a trashy trailer and drives a Lincoln Continental. His MySpace account mentions that his favorite foods are cheese and sandwiches, his favorite dessert is cheesecake, and that he likes to talk to lettuce as seen in the Collect Them All Section
Lumpy is not a playable character in the PC version but is in the XBOX 360 video game, Happy Tree Friends: False Alarm, although he does appear as an icon on the HUD (heads up display). In the minds of many viewers Lumpy has an extremely dysfunctional brain, however, it is notable he has the most responsibility of the characters. A good example of this is From A to Zoo where it's his job to look after five of the younger characters. At times he is rather bossy as in Peas in a Pod, A Change of Heart and See What Develops.
He has spoken clear English the most times. He sometimes cusses "What the fuck?" whenever he sees something weird or disturbing. He also, when Sniffles is about to exit his store in "We're Scrooged", he says "No, wait! Hold on a minute!", or when when he says "Boring..." to Mime when Mime juggles on a ball in "Mime to Five", caroled 4 different songs at people's houses, was able to tell Sniffles about Toothy breaking his arm in "Blast From the Past" in clear English, and has done it many other times too.
Occupations and Careers
For more information, see List of Occupations, for an in-depth review, see Lumpy's Careers
Lumpy is well known for having a wide variety of jobs in different episodes. According to the writers, the reason why they give Lumpy most jobs is because his ineptitude often serves as the mechanism for something funny to happen. He is considered as the "Jack of all Trades" of the show.

Acts Of Stupidity
Every known character is shown to be stupid in some way, as they are shown to make decisions that end up going horribly wrong. But Lumpy is by far the dumbest out of all the Happy Tree Friends, as his constant fumbles lead to others' demises. Here's the list that portrays Lumpy's un-intelligence:
- Spin Fun Knowin' Ya: Spins the merry-go-round so hard it causes Cuddles, Toothy, and Giggles to fly off. In his defense, they did keep telling him to spin faster.
- Wheelin' and Dealin': Wears a snorkel and scuba mask in a cart race.
- Treasure Those Idol Moments: Runs over Flaky in clear sight. This was caused by the Idol, though, so it doesn't count.
- Dunce Upon A Time: Sticks a fork in a plugged in toaster 3 times. Though he was simply after Flaky and didn't seem effected much by the electrocution.
- You're Bakin' Me Crazy: Brings Petunia a blood-covered cake and stupidly says "Merry Christmas!" at her birthday party.
- Meat Me for Lunch: Doesn't care at all that Lifty & Shifty were killed, and used their remains to make meat for his butcher's shop. (debatable, as Lumpy not caring that the raccoons were killed and feeding them to his customers simply showed his vengeful side; However, he looks surprised when Petunia realizes she's eating someone).
- It's a Snap: Falls for bear traps baited with cheese.
- Snow What? That's What!: Lies shirtless on a hammock with a drink... in the winter. Although to be fair, he doesn't seem to be shivering or showing signs of hypothermia.
- Happy Trails Pt. 1: Isn't paying attention to the road (even walking away from the wheel), causing a crash on a stranded island. To be fair, Petunia and Mime took his attention away from the road.
- Class Act: Instructs Toothy to go on with his act despite the other play actors' injuries. Also casts Nutty in a play that has a character dressed as a candy cane.
- Rink Hijinks: Wearing skis at a rollerskating rink.
- The Way You Make Me Wheel: Shaves while driving, resulting in his death and Handy's death as well.
- I Get a Trick Out of You: Unintentionally suffocates a bird by keeping it in his hat, saws Cuddles' in half due to a magic trick, and later uses up the blood which Cuddles needed to survive.
- Icy You: Somehow gets his tongue stuck in hot dog rollers and keeps working with his tongue stuck.
- Out on a Limb: Cuts off the leg which wasn't stuck under the tree instead of vice versa.
- Remains to be Seen: Chooses a leaf blower over a chainsaw to kill the zombies. But since Lumpy successfully defeated Flippy with said leaf blower, it really isn't stupid at all. But, considering the situation and Lumpy's luck, the chainsaw would have been a better choice. Though also given Lumpy's luck, he would have likely cut off his own limbs with the chainsaw and even if he didn't, it would have taken much longer to defeat all of the zombies.
- From A to Zoo: Puts in a dart the wrong direction, causing it to go down his throat and tranquilizes himself (he was doing this carelessly because he was in panic, however, not stupidly). He also doesn't notice a rhino's horn obviously went through Toothy's head, and mistakes a baboon for Sniffles (or just doesn't care).
- The Wrong Side of the Tracks: Designs a roller coaster so poorly that it causes the deaths of the riders and himself. He also nails a wooden board to his ride with Mime impaled to it.
- Don't Yank My Chain: Falls for Lifty & Shifty's foolish disguises and arrests Handy and Mole. Leaves the cell open with the keys near it. Takes several seconds to realize that Handy and Mole had gotten away. Uses part of Mole's sweater (a clue to finding them) to blow his nose.
- Doggone It: Blows a whistle and causes puppies to attack him. Assuming that only that Whistle would go berserk, and not all of the look-alikes, is not particularly stupid. If only Whistle goes berserk, it would be a sensible way of distinguishing him from the others, as Lumpy felt he could handle one Whistle and really he had no reason to suspect that all of the dogs would go berserk.
- Concrete Solution: Makes a bridge out of sugar instead of cement. To be fair, who would have expected a bag of sugar mixed in with a bag of cement, especially as their bags have the same color, shape and size? Probably more of carelessness than stupidity, and he did complete the bridge alone after Handy and Mole were killed, and would have been successful if not for Nutty). The real act of stupidity in this episode is looking inside the nail gun and firing it. He was lucky it wasn't plugged in.
- Wishy Washy: He was walking in with his shoes dirty, Then exited and came back in only to realize that there is a mat underneath him, And when Petunia chokes on a glove, Lumpy puts his plunger into Petunia's mouth in order to help her.
- Who's to Flame: Foolishly plays with a lit match, which is ironic considering his fireman job (Not particularly stupid, because he's playing it in such a way that won't cause disasters).
- Every Litter Bit Hurts: Destroys an entire tree just to make one toothpick (Though this was just to show how much of an a-hole he is in this episode) and clogged his exhaust pipe with a pine cone.
- As You Wish: He also sets Cub on fire and gets him run over by a firetruck. To be fair, it really depended on how Pop worded his wish, as Lumpy was able to successfully grant Nutty, Disco Bear and Sniffles' wishes.
- Take a Hike: Dunks Sniffles in a river with sharp rocks, piercing his head repeatedly, though to be fair, he had no way of knowing what was under the water in that one spot. Uses up all the drinking water for shaving instead of that in the lake. Doesn't look after the group well enough. Takes a nearly broken bridge over a strong one (though this was out of fear, so he wasn't paying attention).
- A Change of Heart: Lumpy repeatedly losing the normal sized hearts due to his not paying attention. However, he did successfully implant a whale heart on a bear with Disco Bear surviving, and knew that using a bicycle pump would keep Disco Bear alive, so even if it looks stupid, it was probably not.
- Blast from the Past: Pushes his body so hard on a seesaw that the handle impales him. Laterrepeats his stupid acts that he did in "Spin Fun Knowin' Ya!".
- Chew Said a Mouthful: Mistakes a jawbreaker for Toothy's eye and draws a pupil on it and puts it in Toothy's eye socket, also drawing a mustache on him.
- Idol Curiosity: Mistakes ice in Toothy's drink for an iceberg. This was caused by the Idol, though, so it doesn't count.
- Home Is Where the Hurt Is: Folds the blueprints of Giggles' new house into a origami crane. Later, he connects electrical pipes to normal pipes for the shower, which electrocutes Petunia later.
- Aw Shucks!: Unintentionally destroyed his house while trying to kill a crow, and thought Toothy's corpse was his scare-crow. Although to be fair, Lumpy might have known it was Toothy, but simply did not care as long as he could serve as a scarecrow.
- Wingin' It: Uses many electronics, despite Mime telling him not too. Later, he takes all five parachutes simply meant that he did not care for his fellow passengers, not particularly stupid. What is stupid is his failure to properly wear even one of these parachutes properly so in the end, it didn't save him.
- Tongue in Cheek: Mistakes the skin from Sniffles' hand as his glove and his organs as a mini-golf course. Although he could have known it was Sniffles' hand and his organs, but he just didn't care as long as he had fun playing golf. Though, anyone who plays golf knows that you only wear one glove so he shouldn't have been looking for the other glove in the first place.
- I've Got You Under My Skin: Tries to stop Sniffles from traveling further up his body, but ends up severing his leg. He is also shown to have numerous strange items, including a plane propeller and a bear trap, inside his pockets.
- Junk in the Trunk: Takes forever to compare the elephant in Lifty & Shifty's car and the one he put on his missing elephant poster. He also chooses a pogo stick over a race car to chase after the thieves. Although to be fair, he was successful in chasing the twins with the pogo stick, so that was not particularly stupid also, if he had chosen the race car, he would have had to get far enough AHEAD of them, pull off, get out, and find a way into the speeding van on foot where the pogo stick allowed him to bounce straight into the van wasting no time.
- Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow: Doesn't realize his can was on his butt and ran to get some new things. He later tries to use a trombone as a hearing aid, tries to phone the hospital while deaf, wears a birthday hat the wrong way (though it was likely simply a difficult task to get it around his antlers), and tries to phone for help using a can telephone.
- Double Whammy Part 1 and 2: Hypnotizes himself, making him act like a chicken. This is later seen in part 2, where he is inside a chicken truck trying to lay eggs. Also, in Part 1, he shows Flippy ink blobs that even to a normal person look like: a dagger, a bomb, and an explosion causing him to flip out. (Though this could have been done as a way to test what causes the flip outs).
- Can't Stop Coffin: Buries what was originally an empty coffin, fills the hole with water (though this could have been done to extinguish the fire), and leaves his truck in reverse driving it into the grave, crushing Cuddles.
- All Flocked Up: Tries to pop his balloons with a rock, but accidentally throws it at Toothy, causing his face to land in hot tar (debatable, may simply be a wrong aim).
- Something Fishy: Uses the fish bowl as the Helmet.
- I Nub You: Sews Handy and Petunia together, and ends up sewing his own arms on them.
- See You Later, Elevator: He uses an elevator during a fire, which isn't safe. Tries CPR on the lower half of Cuddles' corpse.
- Milk Pong: Chokes on a ball, later drinks bleach instead of milk, doesn't notice a rat in the cup (twice), and tries to get the ball out of a wood chipper with his bare hands.
- The Chokes on You: Eats donuts while working, and doesn't chew before swallowing.
- Brake The Cycle: Spills too much gasoline while pouring it into his motorbike, which let him getting burnt to death.
- All In Vein: Leaves Giggles in the fridge for too long, causing her blood to harden. He later drinks too much blood, causing him to go overweight.
- No Time Like the Present: Brings Handy a pair of mittens, ironic considering his lack of hands.
- You're Kraken Me Up: Instead of rescuing Russell, he saves the kraken tentacle with Giggles' head on it, thinking it was Giggles. He makes a similar mistake later on by feeding a bottle of milk to Cub's head attached to a tentacle.
- All Work and No Play: Attempts to save Nutty by jack-hammering the top of the wall, resulting in his torso getting completely mangled. Later saves Sniffles, but is distracted by Lammy, resulting in him getting smashed to pieces by the excavator's buckets closing in on his head. (Lumpy ironically, knows Lammy is already impaled through the brain earlier in the episode, though it likely distracted him because he thought she was dead and is now walking on her own with an injury that should be impossible to survive).
- A Vicious Cycle: Eats chips out of Disco Bear's brain. While hiding in from a possessed tricycle, he bites a chip and the crunch noise blows his cover.
- Spare Tire: Throw fire on gasoline.
- Dream Job: Messes with the television so much that Sniffles' dreams become erased and the TV turns off. Though to be fair, he likely had no idea that's what he was doing and didn't have many ways to. Really it's Sniffles' fault for making it possible for him to do this.
- Ski Patrol: Messes up and causes the deaths of numerous characters. Though this could also have been the narrator's fault for misinterpreting the instructions, and the fact that the narrator continues to praise him even after such mishaps.
- Kringle Tree: Smashes Giggles' head trying to chop down a tree with an axe.
- Kringle Feast: Takes him a long time just to start up a lighter. Then he kills himself (and others) from an explosion because he left the gas open too long while trying to light a lighter. Although to be fair, having a hard time starting a lighter isn't by itself a sign of stupidity.
- Kringle Frosty: Skis over Sniffles and Toothy, killing them. Although he might have missed them because he plowed through their snowman in the first place.
- Strain Kringle: Throws a rock at Cuddles and Toothy, when a snowball would have been more preferable (Possibly he was being a jerk).
- Seize the Day: Uses a defibrillator on Cuddles while he is having a seizure, resulting in his death.
- Happy New Year: Crashes into Flaky and Russell, crushes Cuddles, and somehow gets the film wrapped around his body.
- Moppin Up: Forgets to put a Wet Floor sign while mopping, causing Sniffles to break his head. To be fair, since he was currently in the process of mopping so the sign shouldn't have been necessary and considering that Sniffles didn't notice Lumpy mopping, he certainly wouldn't have noticed the sign.

- Lumpy appears, so far, in every season's first episode, both in the Internet and TV series (Spin Fun Knowin' Ya, Happy Trails Pt. 2: Jumping the Shark, Read 'em and Weep, You're Kraken Me Up and The Wrong Side of the Tracks); as well as in every season finale (Happy Trails Pt.1, From A to Zoo, By The Seat Of Your Pants, and Autopsy Turvy (Double Whammy Part II)).

- Although Lumpy appears to be a nice character and he usually doesn't kill other characters intentionally, he seems to be one of the most hated characters in the show due to his stupidity.
- Lumpy is similar to Petunia and Flippy in another way: all of them have sworn at least once in the series. Lumpy said "What the hell?" in Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow and "Come on, goddammit!" in Kringle Feast and Lumpy can at times be heard saying "What the fuck?". Flippy said "Oh, crap!

- He might be inspired by Bud Budiovitch and Stereo Monovici from Space Goofs because of their stupidities and height.
- Lumpy was seen living in his trailer in the Internet shorts (You're Bakin' Me Crazy, Stealing the Spotlight, Nuttin' but the Tooth, Blind Date and in the TV episode Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow. But in Aw Shucks!, Junk in the Trunk and Peas in a Pod he has a different, bigger house.
- The Camp Lazlo character Scoutmaster Lumpus is possibly a reference to Lumpy. More importantly, Lumpy had the position as a scoutmaster in Take a Hike.
- In the Rocko's Modern Life episode, Bedfellows, a character looking almost exactly like Lumpy has a car dropped on him, however, this episode was made in 1993, so it is not a reference to Happy Tree Friends, although it is a strangely accurate coincidence.
