- "The only thing bigger than this freckled-faced beaver's tail is his big 'ol buck teeth."
- ―"Collect them All" card info[src]
A freckled light purple/mauve beaver with very large, gapped teeth (from which his name is derived), which appear to have a diastema. Although his character description on the official site says he has "big ol' buckteeth" larger than the other characters, in Season 2, he occasionally has the normal buckteeth. He is generally a very friendly character who likes to play around now and then, particularly with the younger characters. He admires Splendid, possibly because the latter saved Toothy in the episode Better Off Bread), and even dresses up as him for Halloween. He is good friends with Cuddles as seen in Spin Fun Knowin' Ya, Class Act, From A to Zoo, Remains to be Seen, Who's to Flame?, Take a Hike, Snow Place to Go, Blast from the Past, Can't Stop Coffin, Autopsy Turvy (Double Whammy Part 2), Party Animal, Concrete Solution, Wrath of Con, and the Strain Kringle. He is also good friends with Giggles, Sniffles, Lumpy, and Petunia. Toothy is one of the primary characters in the show, as he appears in many commercials and advertisements.
There are a couple of ways in which he is famous: he is the first character to be killed in Happy Tree Friends (if one doesn't include Banjo Frenzy as an episode) and he is also the character who suffered a very horrible death in the episode that won an award at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival in France, the infamous Eye Candy. Also, Toothy has a wide range of deaths; usually involving his eyes, his head or disintegrating.
Unlike most of the other characters whose personality defines how they might act in a given situation, Toothy's personality varies a lot. He is impulsive - mostly acting before he thinks (e.g. running away and throwing a lit candle behind him in Class Act). He is not generally considered addle-brained, even though there have been instances where he has acted rather oddly in certain situations (such as misinterpreting some instructions and pouring two barrels full of gun powder into a cannon, rather than the necessary two spoonfuls in Mime to Five). But he is shown to be rather handy, because he knows how to build and put together a bicycle in Brake The Cycle.
It is stated by one of the creators that Toothy is often used as a 'place holder' character due to his ordinary 'Generic Tree Friend' appearance, until they have decided upon a final character. For example, in the storyboard for Wipe Out, Toothy was originally drawn in Cuddles' place surfing and getting impaled on a buoy. His lack of a definite character also means that when he is used as a 'place holder' he won't influence the shaping of the episode in ways the creators don't necessarily mean or want. Sometimes it is Toothy himself who plays the final role in an episode.
Also, while Toothy does have a starring pop-up, he never actually got a real starring role in the TV series. The only episode he starred in was Autopsy Turvy, which wasn't an actual episode.Even though Toothy dies almost as often as Cuddles does, he has survived in Nuttin' but the Tooth, I Get a Trick Out of You, Kringle Karols, A Change of Heart, Wipe Out, Wingin' It, Read 'em and Weep, Can't Stop Coffin, (debatably) Banjo Frenzy, Cold Hearted, Doggone It (Debatably), the YouTube Live Episode, All Flocked Up, Something Fishy, and the HTF Break shorts, Deck the Halls, We Wish You, YouTube Copyright School, Claw and Oh Xmas Tree. Many of Toothy's injuries and some of Toothy's deaths and injuries involve his eyes, as seen in Eye Candy, Keepin' it Reel, Chew Said a Mouthful, Idol Curiosity, A Sight for Sore Eyes, The Carpal Tunnel of Love, and Camp Pokeneyeout.
In the HTF official forums, writer Ken Pontac said he feels Toothy is the most undeveloped character and needs more personality. It was stated by Ken that it might be done in the future. This is already happening in some of the recent episodes (such as the Love Bites short Cold Hearted, where he is shown to be mischievous by interfering with Giggles' and Cro-Marmot's relationship). In Brake the Cycle, he is also shown to enjoy bicycle riding and knows how to fix them. The episode shows he can be stubborn, as he decided to ride his bike anyways despite that a bird took some bolts, leading to fatal mishaps for him and other characters (though he may not have realised the bolt was missing.)
It seems in some episodes that Toothy loves to sing, and others think he's a good singer. As seen in Class Act, Deck the Halls, and We Wish You. Toothy has also cried many times such as Mime and Mime Again, (debatably) Eye Candy, Class Act, Take a Hike, Snow Place to Go, Blast from the Past and Brake the Cycle.

- Kringles & Breaks: 50%
- Total Rate: 28.75%
- Toothy is the first character to die in the Internet Shorts, thus he is the first in Happy Tree Friends. Similarly, he was the first (major character) victim of Evil Flippy in the internet shorts and the TV series.
- In the Pop Corn edition episode of Spin Fun Knowin' Ya, it is revealed that Toothy had a tail enlargement surgery and is wanted for impersonating a dentist in seven states, and was last seen in Ohio (this may be a reference to Nuttin' but the Tooth).
- The First Blood DVD "Collect them All" section reveals he flosses his teeth excessively.
- Toothy and Cuddles are the first duo in which both partners have killed each other. In other duos, one kills the other, but not the other way around.
- Toothy loves watching monster movies, like Godzilla, as seen in Wingin' It.
- The Fall Out Boy music video The Carpal Tunnel of Love has hinted that Toothy has an allergy to bee stings.
- He has a pet turtle that had his shell painted with hot rod flames as seen in Junk in the Trunk.
- Cuddles is his most frequent victim.
- Ever since Eye Candy, Toothy started suffering more eye related injuries as seen in A Sight for Sore Eyes, Chew Said a Mouth Full (Not Shown), Idol Curiosity, The Carpal Tunnel of Love, and Camp Pokeneyeout. Also in Remains To Be Seen one of his eyes are missing when he's a zombie.
- In Spin Fun Knowin' Ya, Toothy was seen with two stray hairs on his head. They disappeared in all future episode but they stayed in his season 1 intros.
- A few of his deaths involve being vaporized, like in Stealing the Spotlight and Easy Comb, Easy Go.
- Toothy's buckteeth are normally longer than the buckteeth of other characters. In some earlier episodes he has normal buckteeth. Further, in early episodes, his buckteeth continuously change between being long and being normal. This was a mistake due to the laziness of the animators, this mistake was removed when FatKat took over for the TV series.
- Toothy and Handy are both voiced by Warren Graff. Both characters are beavers and are quite famous for episodes they are featured in (Eye Candy and Shard at Work respectively). However there have been two times in which Kenn Navarro took Warren Graff's role, the first was in Keepin' it Reel where he played Toothy and second time was in a A Hole Lotta Love where he played Handy.
- Unlike Giggles and Petunia, who are voiced by the same person and also appear a lot, Toothy and Handy have rarely appeared together. The only episodes they appeared on screen together were Remains to be Seen, Happy Trails pt. 1, Doggone It, Wipe Out, Wrath of Con, Concrete Solution, Breaking Wind, YouTube Live Episode and Dunce Upon a Time. All these moments were brief and involved no interaction.
- He was the first character to be killed by Fliqpy, Mime, and The Cursed Idol.
- He is the only main character that does not have a star billing in the first season of the TV series ("Autopsy Turvy" wasn´t a real episode).
- Toothy is one of the playable characters in Happy Tree Friends: False Alarm.
- Toothy is one of the three main characters who don't normally wear any clothes/accessories of any kind. The others are Lifty and Flaky (Lumpy was seen ironing clothes the same color as his fur)
- Toothy is Cuddles, Lumpy, Nutty,and Mime's most frequent victim. Additionally, he is the Cursed Idol's most frequent victim.
- So far the only starring role he has survived in is Nuttin' but the Tooth. (if only regular episodes count)
- His appearance is similar to SpongeBob SquarePants, as both have large gapped teeth and freckles on both sides the face and they both cry a lot. He is also similar to Timmy Turner from The FairlyOdd Parents due to their large front teeth, purple-pink color, and because they are both accident-prone.
- In the episode Hide and Seek, Toothy was the first victim of Evil Flippy.
- However, Flippy's first kill has no blood.
- Toothy is one of only four characters - along with Lumpy, Flaky, and a generic tree friend - to have killed Flippy.
- If you count Autopsy Turvy (although it wasn't a real episode), Cuddles, Flippy, Cro-Marmot, Mole, Lumpy, Lifty, and Shifty appeared in all of his starring roles (since he only had one)
- His season 3 alliterate sentence is: "Using a toothbrush is tantamount for twinkling teeth". Also the toothbrush is a reference to his name.
- He is the first character to cry during more than one death, in Eye Candy and again in Brake the Cycle.
- Toothy and Mole are the last characters to die in season 1.
- Toothy is (debatably) the first and last character to die in season 1.
- He is the first to have a debatable death (Banjo Frenzy)
- Toothy as well as Lumpy are the only characters to kill evil Flippy
- Toothy has the 3rd highest death count out of all the characters, who has 52 deaths. Just behind Giggles and Lumpy, who have 52, Petunia, who has 53, and Cuddles, who has 58.
- Toothy is the only character to kill something else in a Smoochie (a chick in his Easter Smoochie).
- There is a Halloween Costume of Toothy with scissors impaled in his eye.
