HTF Episode Description
Sweet Mime is just trying to bring joy to injured Toothy, but he can't quite get it right. Making balloon animals is harder than it looks! By the way, do you know what kind of animal Mime is? He is a deer.
The episode begins with poor Toothy sitting in a hospital bed, covered in bandages from head to toe. Moments later, someone holds a balloon animal in front of Toothy, surprising him. It turns out to be a new Happy Tree Friend, a purple deer named Mime. As Mime begins juggling some balls, Toothy begins giggling at Mime's silly antics. Mime then pretends that a bandage on Toothy's leg is a cobra rising out of its basket. Toothy finds it funny, that is, until the bandage gets snagged into a desk fan next to his bed. As Toothy struggles to pull his leg out, his leg inadvertently snaps in half, causing him to scream in pain.
As Mime hears Toothy's cries of pain, he proceeds to help by rubbing his wound with rubbing alcohol. While attempting to make the rubbing alcohol come out of its container, Mime accidentally splashes the liquid onto Toothy's wound, which only intensifies his pain. With Toothy wriggling and shaking his body in pain, Mime proceeds to re-position his leg. With his leg back in place, Toothy stops screaming, and all is normal.
Mime gives a silent sigh of relief and turns the fan back on to cool down. However, the bandage is still stuck in the blades, and instead of snapping his leg in half, Toothy starts to get pulled in. Toothy begins to scream as his body starts getting sliced into pieces by the fan. Mime looks away from the grueling scene as Toothy's blood and body parts scatter all over the room. Seeing the destruction around him, Mime begins pulling on an invisible rope to leave the scene. The iris then closes in on Toothy's severed arm, which begins to slide down the wall.
