Sniffles is one of the main characters of Happy Tree Friends.

Character Bio

Sniffles designs

A nerdy blue anteater who is one of the most intelligent characters in the series. He is the second character introduced without a heart-shaped nose and a pair of buckteeth. He usually likes doing and reading science and math problems. To reinforce the 'nerd' image that Sniffles exudes, he is seen dressed up as Spock, a Star Trek character (the Vulcan ears being the giveaway), in Remains to be Seen and Something Fishy. He also sports a pair of glasses that are taped at the bridge and a pocket protector on his chest, this being the typical nerd wardrobe.

Sniffles' IQ has been proven to be extremely high in both the internet and the TV series. He has built things that are far more advanced than most of the other characters (ex. a rocket from a school bus, and even a time machine). Most of the times, however, these devices malfunction and work against him, leading to his own death and the deaths of others. Like Toothy, he has a wide range of deaths, usually involving either his tongue, his head, his torso, getting crushed, and getting sliced or cut apart. He has also had a multitude of jobs, including a doctor and a pilot. In addition, he is sometimes shown to be a bit of a mad scientist (as shown in his Smoochie), mixing fluids that end up causing his death. He usually says "Ah Ha!" when he gets an idea for an invention. 

Sniffles also has a craving for ants, which is one of his animal instincts. However, whenever he tries to eat one, they kill him after torturing him in the most sadistic of manners. The only exception occurs in the episode Blast from the Past, in which Sniffles eats an ant without being killed. In general, Sniffles' deaths are slower and more painful than most of the other characters. Tongue in Cheek is considered by many to be his worst and longest death, as well as one of the worst in the entire series, bringing him to tears from the extreme pain and/or sheer despair. On some occasions, however, especially in newer episodes, he dies quick deaths, similar to Mime, who has quick-to-instant deaths. Similar to Cub, Cuddles, Toothy, Petunia, Handy, Lifty, and Shifty, Sniffles rarely survives in the episodes he appears in. The only TV episodes he survives are Blast from the Past, See What Develops, Wipe Out!, Easy Comb, Easy Go, and Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow. In the internet series, he survives Happy Trails Pt. 1 (but not part 2), We're Scrooged!, Spare Tire, Camp Pokeneyeout, Dream Job, and Stealing the Spotlight (Debatable). He also survives False Alarm, YouTube Copyright School, and the HTF Break short Happy New Year.

His mouth and nose are combined to make a trunk-like snout, with his lips at the tip. It used to be long in the Internet shorts, but starting with the TV series, it became much shorter. The reason for this was to add additional cuteness to his appearance.

Sniffles' home appears to be a lab, as can be seen in I've Got You Under My Skin, Blast from the Past, A Sight for Sore Eyes, Suck It UpTongue in Cheek, and Pet Peeve.

It is worth noting that Sniffles, although not one of the four center characters (Lumpy, Cuddles, Giggles, Toothy), is being featured more often. He has the second most starring roles in the TV series, at a total of 6; only Lumpy has more, with 16. He has also had a total of 17 starring roles if you add up his starring roles in TV and Internet episodes.

According to the "Collect Them All" section of the First Blood DVD, Sniffles has a few allergies and loves calculating long division problems.

Despite the fact that the majority of fans consider Sniffles one of if not the smartest Happy Tree Friends characters due to his nerdy character design and inventing abilities as can be clearly seen here, some fans consider his intelligence level to be very low due to his lack of common sense and poor planning skills. An example being in I've Got You Under My Skin where Sniffles put a timer on his shrinking submarine that determines how long he can stay microscopic despite that it was designed to go inside Giggles' and as the timer wound down, he made no attempt to turn it back and give himself more time.

He has a MySpace account which shows that his idols are Albert Einstein, Spock, William Shatner, and Splendid. Sniffles is the second character to idolize Splendid (the first being Toothy); this is further evidenced in Suck It Up and A Sight for Sore Eyes. He is best friends with Nutty, as can be seen in From Hero to Eternity, Random Acts of Silence, and All Work and No Play. He is also friends with Giggles, as can be seen in Boo Do You Think You Are?, Happy Trails Pt. 2: Jumping the Shark, I've Got You Under My Skin, Every Litter Bit Hurts, and Idol Curiosity. He has also been seen with Lumpy in In a Jam, I've Got You Under My Skin, See What Develops, Take a Hike, From A to Zoo, Class Act, A Hole Lotta Love, and Blast from the Past.

Trivia

  • Sniffles is the first character to have an episode where he starred without any other main character in it (Crazy Ant-ics).
  • Sniffles is the first and so far only character to have his fingernails seen in an episode. In Tongue in Cheek, the ants painfully open one of his nails and pour salt under it.
  • Despite seeming to be very intelligent, Sniffles often lacks common sense, which usually ends up causing his demise.
  • Sniffles and Flaky die in the first and last episodes of season 2.
  • He is the only character who is an animal that is not native to North America. Anteaters are found in South America. As such, his species is out of place with the setting.
  • Sniffles is the eighth character to die in the TV series.
  • He started the rivalry between ants and anteaters in Blast from the Past by eating a prehistoric ant in front of a prehistoric anteater.
  • It is possible that Sniffles wears a shirt the same color as his fur (similar to Lumpy in a few episodes), since he is seen with a pocket protector.
  • Sniffles has survived 13 out of the 59 episodes he has appeared in.
  • Sniffles is the first character to kill Flippy.
  • Without his Class Act kills, his kill count would drop from 111 to 71.
  • He may have been based on the aardvark from the "Pink Panther" show. Both are colored blue, usually fail to catch ants, and tend to get injured quite a lot.
  • Sniffles may also be based on Arthur the Aardvark, as both characters are smart and wear similar-looking glasses. Coincidentally, both characters started off with long noses that were eventually made shorter, though Arthur's more so than that of Sniffles.
  • In the ant episodes, he is also a lot like Aardvark from the 50s theoretical cartoon The Ant and the Aardvark. Both characters repeatedly go after the same ant/ants in exceptionally creative ways, only to very painfully pay the price.
  • In addition to his snout, his ears and tail are also unique.
  • He is the first main character to act as a villain.
    • He is the only main character to act like a villain in their debut to become a normal character in future appearances.
  • He stars as the only character in an episode the most.
  • Some people mistake him for an elephant because of his trunk-like snout. However, his ears and tail are not like an elephant's and his mouth is on the tip of his snout.
  • Sniffles is one of the two characters whose species is completely carnivorous. The other character is Russell.
  • Sniffles is the first character to die in Boo Do You Think You Are?, From A to Zoo, Ipso Fatso, Blast from the Past, and Random Acts of Silence. On the other hand he dies last in I've Got You Under My Skin, Idol Curiosity, Wrath of Con, and Pet Peeve.
  • Sniffles is one of the two characters to kill The Mole more than the amount of times The Mole has killed him. The other character is Giggles.
  • He is one of only two male characters (the other being Cub) with a female voice actor.
  • Sniffles' snout was long in the first two seasons of the internet series. During the TV series, though first shown in Suck It Up, his snout became shorter.
    • Snouts

      Sniffles' snout designs over the course of the series.

      In Internet Season 4, his snout became slightly smaller and straight (like it appears when he is facing the front). Now his snout can transition between curved and straight in episodes such as Pet Peeve.
  • Most of his kills are caused by what he creates or builds, like his pet in Pet Peeve, the drill in A Hole Lotta Love, or his mechanical paper plane in A Sight for Sore Eyes, to name a few.
  • He has a lot of money, as is shown in the episode We're Scrooged!, possibly because his intelligence allows him to have high-paying jobs.
  • The only characters who have not killed Sniffles are Handy, Cub, Cro-Marmot, Flippy, Mr. Pickels, and Lammy.
  • He is the first victim of Nutty and Toothy. In the TV series he is the first victim of Disco Bear, Giggles, and Petunia.
  • He stars in both The Wrong Side of the Tracks and Wrath of Con despite barely appearing in either them, for example:
  • Just like Handy and Cub, he sometimes does not seem to mind when characters are injured or dead around him.
    • In A Sight for Sore Eyes, he shows no concern when Toothy breaks his head in half and dies, he just watches.
    • In In a Jam, he (along with Handy) shows no concern when Cuddles slices his eye in half.
    • In We're Scrooged!, he is not shocked to see Lumpy lose his eye and leaves.
    • In Concrete Solution, he just stares at The Mole's dead body and does not seem surprised in the slightest.
    • In Pet Peeve, he is aware that his pet is acidic, but does not bother treating Lumpy after he pulls the blob away from his leg.
  • He is the most frequent victim of Petunia.
  • Lumpy is his most frequent victim.
  • His deaths from Tongue in Cheek and In a Jam are both similar.
    • Furthermore, in both As You Wish and his smoochie, Sniffles receives a rocket, has his arms ripped off, and is killed by the gift he just received.
  • He was seen without his glasses in A Sight for Sore Eyes and briefly in Tongue Twister Trouble.
  • He is the most frequent and only victim of The Ants (and Mittens, within the show).
  • Like real anteaters, Sniffles has very poor eyesight (though he wears glasses to help himself see). But unlike his species, he has teeth.
  • So far, the only starring roles he has survived in are Blast from the Past (only with the time machine in an endless loop) and Dream Job (Though he ends up seriously traumatized).
  • In three of the six TV episodes he starred in, he killed other characters, and in the other three, he did not.
  • Despite being a "nerd", Sniffles is pretty athletic. He can run fast, jump far, and is very strong as in Idol Curiosity. However, he is seen having difficulty while lifting a bowling ball in Spare Me.
  • In the TV series, Lumpy appears in all of his starring roles. Lumpy also co-stars with him in The Wrong Side of the Tracks and I've Got You Under My Skin.
  • In season 3 and season 4, his alliterate sentence is: Science is seriously satisfying!.
  • Sniffles and The Mole are the only characters to regularly wear glasses.
  • Sniffles was originally planned to be a squirrel.
  • Despite his tries to catch ants, he almost never succeeds at catching them at all, an exception being when he ate an ant in Blast from the Past.
  • Sniffles has the longest tongue length out of all of the characters, which is not at all strange considering his species.
  • He could be considered similar to Mametchi from the Tamagotchi line of toys, as both are shown to be very intelligent, make inventions which can fail, and are shown with a job (for example, Sniffles as a doctor and Mametchi as a dentist).
  • After Petunia in Stayin' Alive, he is the second character to die a blood-free death (in Treasure Those Idol Moments).
  • Sniffles appears as a boss in Deadeye Derby.
  • He could be considered similar to Etno Polino or one of Stereo Monovici's heads from Space Goofs, since all three appear to be intelligent. The trio (not counting Stereo) also makes inventions which can go wrong (like Etno's UFOs or many inventions made by Sniffles).
  • It is odd that a character that is portrayed as so intelligent never learns from trying to eat The Ants, despite how they brutally torture him to death every time he does. This is possibly due to the show's little continuity (similar to how Flippy never gets over his disorder despite being cured once).
    • However, in the particularly brutal Tongue in Cheek, he was tortured just as brutally (if not more) as usual when he reached his hand into their anthill, but still tried to catch and eat them again later in the same episode.
  • Sniffles is one of the few characters with more than 100 kills. The others are Lumpy, Pop, The Mole, Mime, and Fliqpy.
  • The "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" character, Twilight Sparkle, is similar to Sniffles because of their high knowledge.
  • He, Nutty, and Russell are the only main characters to debut in a solo episode.
