HTF Episode Description

It wouldn’t be Christmas without a season themed episode! Happy Holidays!


On Christmas Eve, Santa Claus Lumpy comes down the chimney of an apartment and lays a present under a tree. The light turns on, much to his surprise. A tired Handy walks in the living room and spots his present under the tree. Lumpy peeps out of the fireplace in satisfaction.

Handy tries to open the gift, but fails. He bites on the ribbon and pulls it, only to tighten it. For a last resort, he bites onto a knife, but loses his grip and causes it to impale his foot, apparently making him unable to move. Panicking, Handy spots a saw in his toolbox. The floor below, Lumpy puts a gift under The Mole's tree. The Mole passes by and Lumpy is shocked at first. But as he sits on his couch, Lumpy realizes he is blind, and takes advantage of it by eating his cookies.

Back on the upper floor, Handy saws the floor underneath his foot in order to get rid of the knife, only to get himself stuck through the hole and cause The Mole's ceiling fan to decapitate Lumpy. Pieces of Lumpy fly into every corner of the room, shattering a window, and one landing on a phonograph, which plays Lumpy's screams in a continuous loop. The Mole hears this and goes to stop the noise.

Handy bites on the ribbon of his gift to save him, but he and the gift are forced through the hole and his corpse lands on The Mole's firewood pile. The Mole stops his record from playing, and puts it on to some Christmas music. He feels the cold come in from his window, of course, The Mole then throws Handy's corpse in the fireplace. He walks back to his couch, however he slips on a piece of Lumpy's flesh and gets stabbed through the neck by the shattered glass of his window. His head slices off and lands on top of a half-made snowman.

Back in Handy's room, the wind blows away some of the wrapping of Handy's gift, revealing his gift to be a pair of winter gloves.


"A hug is a great gift - one size fits all and it's easy to exchange!"

  1. Lumpy's antlers change place twice.
  2. Handy's tools change place once.
  3. The Mole's mole changes place 3 times.
  4. Handy pulling the ribbon enough to tighten wrapping paper should have picked the present off the ground.
  5. The saw was at least one meter away from Handy, so it is unknown how he could even reach it. However, Handy has shown many times that he is able to complete tasks as long as they take place off-screen.
  6. When Handy's body starts to get stuck in the hole, his tail disappears.
  7. When Handy's body falls through the ceiling his foot is no longer connected to the fan.
  8. On YouTube, this is listed as the 74th episode, even though Breaking Wind is the actual 74th episode.
  9. The Mole and Lumpy would have most likely co-starred with Handy.
  10. Handy's body, being bloody and squishy after falling through the hole, should not have caught on fire as quickly as it did.
