"Nuttin' Wrong with Candy" is an episode of the Happy Tree Friends internet series, the seventh of the first season. This is the episode that first features Nutty, the sugar addicted squirrel who can never satisfy his sweet tooth, which usually leads to his downfall.
Vending machines are tricky for candy-loving squirrels! Nutty shakes and jitters as he tries hard to get his next candy buzz. Is it worth it in the end?
Nutty the squirrel is having one of his candy cravings and decides to consume the lollipop on his head. When he does, he gets an intense sugar rush and all of the other pieces of candy on his body drop off, leaving him 'exposed'. Although the lollipop was good, he wants more sugar. Conveniently, there is a vending machine nearby.
Nutty goes over to the vending machine and puts in a coin. As the coil slowly moves the candy bar closer to him, Nutty jitters with anticipation. Finally, the candy flops down but stops, stuck on the coil. This really irritates Nutty, so he tries to reach into the vending machine's opening to get it out.
Nutty grabs a hold of the candy bar and starts to pull, but it won't budge. He pulls harder, only to have his arm torn off! Even though he has lost his arm, Nutty cares more about the sugary treat that awaits him inside the vending machine. He rocks the vending machine, foaming at the mouth, causing the vending machine to topple over on him, trapping him inside.
With Nutty trapped in the vending machine, he ignores the glass embedded in his face and focuses on one of the candy bars that is now in his mouth. Before he can enjoy his little treat, however, the coils activate and edge closer to him. All Nutty can do is scream as he is ripped apart by the coils. Blood pours out of the machine, the penalty for Nutty's selfish desire.
"Wash behind your ears!"
- Nutty gets his eye and other parts poked by a whirling candy device. (death not seen)

- The blood from Nutty's arm was orange, but the blood from his eyes and head were red.

- When Nutty is sucking on the candy bar, he still has a full smile even though his lips are closed on the candy.
- The second time we see the toppled vending machine, there are more candy bars strewn about than there were before.
- When Nutty's blood oozes out the machine, candy bars flow out. Since the machine is flat against the ground, this is impossible.
- The candy on Nutty's face in the opening is different than it is at the beginning of the episode.
- The machine shouldn't have had its swirls go forward, just spin without killing Nutty.
- The machine didn't have a plug attached to it.

- The swirls were spinning the wrong way, the way they were going the candy bars should have gone back into the machine.
- It's not possible for Nutty to rip his arm off as the candy wrapper would rip first.
