Happy Tree Friends - YouTube Live

Happy Tree Friends : YouTube Live Episode is a special episode shown on YouTube Live 2005-2006.


9 characters are shown in a crane machine. The crane picks Cuddles up by his head, but he is soon dropped. A few seconds later, he is picked up again around the torso. He laughs happily at having been picked up, however, the crane begins thrashing him violently around the machine, smashing him against the walls. Flippy's eye iris appears with a green iris while Cuddles tries to free himself from the crane's grasp, but to no avail. The crane slams him against the front window of the machine a few more times and he dies. As the crane lifts his corpse away, the Giggles, Toothy, Lumpy, Nutty, Handy, Lifty and Shifty shriek and frantically try to escape the machine while Flippy starts to (possibly) flip out. A few seconds later, the crane picks up a circle that says Happy Tree Friends on it.


  • Cuddles is killed when a crane from a crane machine smashes him against the glass walls of the machine. (debatable)
  • Flippy may have (possibly) flipped out and killed Giggles, Toothy, Lumpy, Nutty, Handy, Lifty and Shifty (debatable and not seen,because that did not remind him of war).


  • Before Cuddles is bludgeoned to death by the crane, the crane seems to be "playing" with him, first bruising him, and then severely battering him before killing him.


  1. Giggles' ear briefly passes through the wall of the machine.
  2. Lumpy's right antler briefly passes through the wall of the machine.
  3. Nutty's tail briefly passes through the wall of the machine.
  4. Lifty's ear briefly passes through the wall of the machine
  5. The crest on Flippy's beret changes places several times.
    1. If one looks closely, once Cuddles is in the claw, about to get killed, Flippy's pupils change to Fliqpy eyes, hinting that he's going to flip out offscreen.
  6. When Lumpy is staring at you, his right antler is upside-down and his left antler is up. When he's trying to get out of the machine, however, his left antler is upside-down and his right antler is up.
  7. Toothy has his big buckteeth when staring at you, though after the machine starts to smash Cuddles, his buckteeth turn normal.
  8. Sniffles' scream is briefly heard even though he did not appear in this episode, although its possible he may be hidden behind the other tree friends in the machine.


  • The vending machine from Nuttin' Wrong with Candy and the claw machine from Rink Hijinks appear in the background.
  • This is the first irregular episode in which Flippy does not flip out or kill any characters. He also didn't flip out in Happy Trails Pt. 2: Jumping the Shark (a regular episode), though he did kill Flaky in that episode. His pupils, however, shrink and lose their pac-man shape while Cuddles is being thrashed around.
  • The HTF Break Claw could be a remake of this episode.
  • The music in this episode and Claw has also played in Pitchin' Impossible.
