Wrath of Con Blurb

Previous Episode Peas in a Pod
Next Episode All Flocked Up

"Wrath of Con" is an episode of the Happy Tree Friends internet series, the seventh season three episode, and sixty-first overall. It is the first episode to use the current intro and outro credits and also the first to be produced in widescreen and high-definition.

HTF Episode Description

Nerds unite! A trek to the comic book convention to meet their hero leaves them breathless.

Plot

A mask-wearing, backpack-hauling Sniffles departs a bus and stares awestruck at a large convention center where the latest comic book convention is being held. Cuddles and Toothy enter before him, flashing their convention passes to The Mole, who stands watch as the security guard. Sniffles can't find his ticket, however, so The Mole turns him away. This turns out to be a blessing in disguise, as a massacre is about to unfold in the convention center.

Inside the building, Splendid sits at a booth, signing autographs. While signing a picture for Mime, the top of the pen breaks off. When Splendid flicks the top of the pen away, it pierces Mime, Disco Bear, and Russell through their heads. When Splendid completes his task he looks up to find no one in front of him. He shrugs and looks at his watch. Realizing he's late for his speech, he hurries away to the auditorium.

On his way to the auditorium, Splendid passes by Giggles (who's dressed as Princess Leia) and Petunia (who's dressed as Jama), who are playing with a toy light saber and spear, respectively. The light on Giggles' light saber goes out, saddening the girls. Splendid thinks for a second and uses his eye lasers to recharge the light saber. Though happy at first, Giggles ends up cutting Petunia in half with the charged weapon. To make matters worse, the hot plastic melts over Giggles' head, setting her on fire. She runs away, screaming.

In the auditorium, Splendid taps the microphone only for it to break due to his super-strength. He then tries speaking loudly, but the sound waves of his super voice ends up breaking glass and puncturing eardrums. Giggles, still on fire and now missing the top of her head (only leaving a few remaining teeth), stumbles into the auditorium and falls down dead. She ends up setting Shifty on fire, then Lifty, then everyone else (but Splendid) in the room on fire.

Splendid, seeing this in shock sucks the air out of the room to smother the fire. Unfortunately, this condenses the size of the convention center and leaves everyone inside without air, causing them to suffocate. Noticing this, Splendid proceeds to exhale the air back into the room whereupon the convention center expands. The bodies of the convention patrons are flung to the windows by Splendid's breath, crushing their bodies in the process. The magnitude of Splendid's breath eventually causes the convention center to get destroyed, killing all inside except Splendid himself.

Sniffles, having finally found his pass, walks up to Splendid, who is currently holding up a portion of the building, and asks for an autograph. Splendid, happy to oblige, ends up dropping the portion of the building on Sniffles. Realizing the death and destruction he's caused, Splendid quickly leaves the scene.

Moral

"No good deed goes unpunished."

Sniffles as a Splendid fan?

Window cleaning is concidered the most dangerous job in the UK

No wonder the police don't carry guns

Platinum blood donor cards

Hey, aren't you missing something?

Read this: No pants, No service

(On The Mole's arm) Arm was lengthened to fit HD width

Rare "Banjo Frenzy" reference sure to increase resale value of episode

HTF glow in the dark bobble heads first appeared at Comic-Con 2007

"S" logo is from Splendid's KA-POW! Spin-off show

The first comic book was made in 1842

The first Sharpie autograph on a comic book was made in 1964

The hobby of collecting autographs is known as philography

The hobby of dying for them is known as stupidology

That doesn't look like Splendid's signature

Not sure what it says

That's not even an "S"

leki? Is that what it says?

I wouldn't buy it. Probably a fake

Hope they had their tetanus shots

Footage from the lost HTF Star Wars episode

May the 4th is Star Wars day!

Hey, that doesn't seem fair

Light Saber VS Stick

This injustice must be remedied!

Light Saber blades are pure plasma

That's better

Now that Light Saber might have a chance against that stick!

Take that Mr Stick

Caution: the weapon you are about to enjoy is extremely hot

and could cause slight skin irritation

Even though we call it a podium

Watchmen reference #2

It's actually called a lecturn

Is this thing on? (I couldn't resist)

Darn super strength

You should see him trying to cook eggs

Rare full profile scene makes this episode evwn more collectable!

Not to mention the stunning special effects

AC/DC concerts have reached 130 decibels

The pain threshold for noise is 125 decibels

Looks like someone just tried the convention center spicy tacos

It's illegal to yell FIRE in a movie theater

but it's OK to yell if you are ON FIRE in a movie theater

Splendid will later claim that he didn't inhale

1, 2, 3

don't tell the union

It's not nice to make fun of chipmunks

Lumpy must have had the tacos too

For sweet breath, chew fresh parsley

yeah I do special effects

Hey, is this the Tokyo subway or the tram to the gift shop?

All aboard!

Epic multi-death explosions have been known to add 12% to the resale value of an HTF episode

The super strength does come in handy sometimes.

So does checking your pockets

Comic-Con started in 1970

with work that looked way better than this

The first three day convention was at the U.S. Grant Hotel

with walls that looked way better than this

of the 300 attendees, none were mortally wounded

but this black looks way better than theirs did

It's the special edition lacquer varnish finish

making this episode a true collector's item

worth a fortune if found in mint, unwatched condition

While we are trying to sell out HTF bobble heads on ebay, the comedy robot will leave you with some words of wisdom

(Binary code is shown for the remainder of the episode)

Deaths

  1. Mime, Disco Bear, and Russell have their heads pierced by the tip of a pen Splendid flicks at them.
  2. Giggles cuts Petunia in half with a charged-up light saber.
  3. Giggles' head is set on fire, melting her entire head.
  4. Nutty suffocates to death after Splendid sucks all the air out of the room.
  5. Lifty, Shifty, Cuddles, Toothy, Handy, Cub, and Lumpy are crushed when Splendid performs his super breathing.
  6. Pop, Flaky, The Mole, and (debatably) Cro-Marmot are crushed by the collapsing building.
  7. Sniffles is crushed when Splendid drops part of the building on him.
  8. Truffles may have died when the building collapsed (debatable, blurb version only).

Goofs

  1. Flaky, Pop, and a Generic Tree Friend appear in the crowd when it's shown from behind, but they disappear when viewed from the front. Similarly, Nutty didn't appear in the crowd until it was shown from the front.
  2. Toothy's ears explode from Splendid's voice, but return to normal when the fire spreads.
  3. When Splendid yells too loudly, Lifty and Shifty's eardrums should rupture like everyone else in the room, as both are shown clutching their head instead of holding their ears (unless they were sitting far enough away to avoid major injury).
  4. Lifty and Shifty swap places when the scene goes from the crowd shown from the back to the crowd shown from the front.
  5. Some of the people's positions change when the scene shifts to the crowd shown from the back to being shown from the front (Cub moves up a row and further to his left, Toothy moves to the side, and Handy moves to the middle, etc.)
  6. Even though The Mole is blind, he can still somehow sense when someone with or without a ticket is going in (maybe he wasn't able to hear Cuddles and Toothy, but somehow he was able to hear Sniffles).
  7. Splendid managed to survive the explosion, despite the fact he died in the explosion in Class Act.
  8. In the BlurB version, when The Mole points at Sniffles to go back to the bus, the blurb on his arm says "Arm lengthened to fit HD width", but when it goes to a wide shot of Sniffles and The Mole, the blurb on The Mole's arm says "Arm lengthened to fit HD aspect ratio".
  9. Splendid's ID tag disappears when he flicks his broken pen-tip at Russell, Mime, and Disco Bear.
  10. Lumpy appears in the scene, but he is not shown in the crowd or in the front.
  11. They put Sniffles as a starring character, but he only appeared a few times.

Trivia
