TRULY SICK & HILARIOUS STUFF THAT'S NOT FOR THE KIDDIES!

"OK, first of all...THIS STUFF IS NOT FOR CHILDREN! Parents, please note that even the cover of the DVD states this. These are "adult" cartoons for the the 18+ crowd. Got it? Good!
Now, though these cartoons are great, this particular DVD is a bit of a rip-off. There are a total of 16 cartoons, each about a minute in length, plus some extras. But would it have killed Mondo Studios to put everything on one DVD instead of three? Must they be that greedy?
Back to the cartoons: incredibly violent, truly twisted and screamingly funny.

Makes Itchy and Scratchy look like Disney

"If you like the idea of a totally sick and demented cartoon masquerading as a cute and cuddly children's cartoon, then you may want to check out the Happy Tree Friends. I was laughing hysterically within minutes of putting in this DVD for the first time.
The DVD includes 16 episodes (14 episodes, plus the original episode, plus a "bonus" episode). However, they are EXTREMELY short. Each episode runs for about 1 minute. I watched all 16 in about 20 minutes. The DVD lists a running time of 140 minutes. Apparently, they are including all of the "extras" in that running time. Of the remaining 120 minutes, most of it is the Creator's commentary (several of the creators discuss the cartoon as the episodes are played without sound next to images of the original storyboards), as well as a mini-feature where the creators go through a bunch of their earliest sketches of the characters.
In addition, there are 4 "Smootchies" on the DVD. These are take-offs of the "Tamagoochie" thingamambobs that were popular for a little while (the little digital pets that kids were supposed to "take care of" by pushing buttons to "feed" or "play" with the pet). Each "Smootchie" features a different Happy Tree Friends character, and each offers 3 buttons that lead to various disturbing deaths for the character in question. I found this very amusing at first, but the humor was wearing off by the time I finished all three options on the last "Smootchie".
All in all, I am glad I purchased this DVD, as the cartoons are hysterical. However, I am disappointed that there is only 20 minutes worth of actual cartoons, especially since there are a number of Happy Tree Friends episodes that are not on the DVD. Instead of splitting it up into 2 DVDs so they can charge twice as much, it would have been nice if they had given Volume 1 enough episodes to make it longer than 20 minutes worth. Especially since many of the episodes can be viewed for free on the Happytreefriends.com website."
Holy .funniest cartoons ever

"If you love to see furry cute animals having their eyes poked out and intestines splattered all over the road, this is it. These guys are better than itchy and scratchy. So much violence, so much blood and pain. This is a great party DVD, its a little short but worth every penny. Buy this now you wont be dissappointed. WARNING this is not for anyone under 16 years old alot of blood and violence!"

"i love these cartoons because they are just so wrong. so so wrong. the brutal killing of cute cuddly creatures are enough to keep a little kid and a grown adult entertained. the second and third dvds are better because they left out the openning theme song which becomes very annoying by the end of the first dvd. the second dvd has a decent amount of scenes but the third has longer scenes by about a half a minute extra a piece. overall the shock value is worth buying at least one of these dvds so you can scare off some witless relatives you want to be rid of or to please your drunk friends."
