"HAPPY TREE FRIENDS - Overkill
Where there are cute and cuddly creatures being beaten, stabbed, decapitated, and maimed their will always be laughter...
Happy Tree Friends is best described as an `Itchy and Scratchy' concept, with many more characters, In each episode (Which last only a few minutes at best) all the cartoons are brutally killed in a hilarious fashion, over and over and over and over again. The only real downfall is the "giggles and lauging' at the end of each episode is a test of ones nerves. Other than that taking 20 minutes and laughing non-stop in disgust is recommended at least once a day!
Definitely recommended to watch not sure if can justify the $31.99 price tag. (Or be like me and wait until your roommates buys it used.)
Favorite Characters: Lumpy the Moose and Veteran Bear (Whose Vietnam flashbacks are the highlight of the entire disk.)

"Happy Tree Friends is perhaps the most useless thing ever created, depicting the deaths of our wild-life friends and numerous of unbelievable... and hilarious ways. There are no morals (except for those bogus ones that end each episode), no plots, no nothing really, except colorful characters and even more colorful deaths.
Needless to say, this DVD set isn't for kids. It's barely for adults, and I'd definitely keep it away from anyone with an "unstable" mind. This is a series aimed at those of us who grew up desensitized to violence and death, and is merely entertainment. Nothing in these short, commercial-length cartoons should ever be taken seriously.
Overkill is a collection of the first three volumes in the Happy Tree Friends series, which can be seen on G4 or online at their website. Each volume contains basically the same thing, which is numerous episodes depicting unbelievable animated death. The episodes are random, as are the characters, which makes the series a little more unpredictable. The gems in each DVD comes in the form of the extra features. The Smoochies interactive games are fun and quick. There are plenty of bonus episodes on each disc, plus a few commentaries and some funny documentaries on the Happy Tree Friends and how they were created.
I'd recommend this series first to South Park fans, as it will have some similarities. The constant unpredictability of the deaths is a lot like what happens to Kenny each episode. Beyond that, I'd recommend it to older video game players, or to those of you who know that this is "JUST A CARTOON." It's fun and quick entertainment never meant (repeating myself here) to be taken seriously."
Sick, vile, disgusting; and completely hilarious

"Happy Tree Friends may look cute and cuddly at first glance, but beware: if you don't want to see these cute and cudly critters meet their ends in insanely violent, vile, sick, and insanely hilarious ways, than stay far, far away from this DVD set containing episodes originally broadcast on the G4 network. All the cute and friendly forest animals you'd expect to see in a children's movie are here: from bears to porcupines, to even a moose and a shell-shocked Vietnam vet animal all take part in loads of misadventures that end with their grisly deaths. It's hard to say what's tougher to swallow; the way these critters meet their demises, or how amazingly funny it ends up being. As you can tell by now, Happy Tree Friends is definitely not for everyone (anyone who doesn't have a dark sense of humor or a high tolerance for animated violence should avoid this at all costs), but if you're a fan of such animated lunacy like South Park, Drawn Together, or even Family Guy; you should give this a look."
