Nuttin’ But the Tooth is an episode of the Happy Tree Friends internet series, the thirteenth of the first season.

HTF Episode Description

Did Toothy go to dental school or is he just learning as he goes? Nutty's candy cravings lead to a rotten tooth, and it's Toothy to the rescue. Lumpy makes a brief appearance, just in time to save the day!


Nutty is a patient of Toothy the dentist. Nutty is obviously nervous, but he doesn't seem to mind that Toothy is reading a dentistry instuction book prior to performing (as well as during) Nutty's checkup. As Nutty opens wide, Toothy comes across a discolored, rotten tooth (or cavity) that needs to be removed.

After improperly injecting Novocain into Nutty's mouth, Toothy tries to drill out the tooth. When Toothy is drilling, the drill's battery goes dead, much to his disappointment. However, after Toothy managed to get a another battery, he attempted several times to place the battery in the drill. Unfortunately, he only succeeds in drilling a hole in the back of Nutty's throat. Next, Toothy tries the old fashioned method of tying one end of a string around Nutty's tooth, and the other end to a doorknob. Toothy rings a doorbell, and Lumpy answers the door, causing Nutty's jaw to get ripped from his head. Nutty's rotten tooth is one of only a few teeth that aren't torn out due to this attempt. Before the episode ends, however, the tooth falls out on its own, finally completing the operation.

  3. When Toothy was using the drill, he accidentally drills a hole on the headrest on the chair. But at the end of the episode, the hole on the headrest is gone.
  4. The blood in this episode is colored incorrectly.
  5. When Nutty is shown from the back (especially at the shot where Toothy brings out the drill), Nutty's head marking isn't visible from the back and his candy apple is missing.
  6. In the Blurb, Toothy has 2 right ears when he asks Nutty to open his mouth.
  7. In the Blurb, when the writers brought up Justin Bieber, the I and the E in his name were backwards (Beiber).
  8. When Toothy is walking up to Nutty with the book in his hands, his right eye can be seen looking at the viewer for a split second.

Quick Shot Moment

When Toothy is seen reading his dentistry book just before bringing out the drill, there is a brief shot of Nutty with his jaw destroyed. (This quick shot moment spoils the ending, as well as Nutty's final injury.)

Note: This was fixed in the Blurb Version on YouTube and in the Classics Remastered version on
