HTF Episode Description

Brainy anteater Sniffles doesn't quite use his head when digging in this particular ant hole. His tasty treat turns ugly when the ants take their revenge. Do you notice what is hidden in the ant hole? Be wary of hidden treasure!


The episode starts with a turquoise anteater named Sniffles walking along in the forest, thinking of some math equations. He then comes upon an anthill. Fascinated, he slithers his tongue through the pathway. At the very bottom of the anthill, there's a whole family of ants praying for dinner, when suddenly, Sniffles' tongue crashes the party.

Though satisfied that he found the ants, he feels something going horribly wrong. It turns out the Ants have hammered Sniffles' tongue down, trapping him. He tries to pull his tongue out, but it is useless. The Sister Ant can be seen scratching Sniffles' tongue away with a cheese grater, and the Brother Ant squeezes lemon juice on the shaved tongue. Sniffles still tries to yank his tongue out, but to no avail.

The Ants torturing Sniffles.

As the Mother Ant uses an electric saw to saw away Sniffles' tongue, the Baby Ant runs up it, carrying a container of gasoline and leaving a trail. As Sniffles pulls on his ears in pain, the Baby Ant arrives at the top and tosses the container of gas into poor Sniffles' mouth, then jumps away. The Mother Ant finishes Sniffles off by using a match to ignite the gas, which rapidly rides up his tongue. When the flame reaches his face, his whole upper body explodes, scattering his body all over the place.

The episode ends with the Baby Ant popping out of the anthill, shouting and cheering in triumph.

  1. In the introduction when Sniffles pops out of the bush, the bush disappears, except for the area beneath Sniffles. (This was fixed in the Classics Remastered version.)
  2. The ants, their table, and their weaponry are not seen when Sniffles is lowering his tongue down the hole or when the fire builds up to Sniffles' head.

    The start of that fire is unknown. You've found the 7th goof on images. The door is missing.

  3. When Sniffles' tongue goes through the door, a second door can be seen.
  4. In the Classics Remastered Version, after Sniffles puts his tongue in the hole, a bone on the left side magically appears.
  5. The table is cut with an electric saw, however it appears unbroken in the next scene with it.
  6. When Sniffles explodes, his blood is orange.

Quick Shot Moment

When the ants are hammering down Sniffles' tongue, a brief shot of the Mother Ant manning the electric saw is seen.

Note: This is fixed in the Classics Remastered versions from YouTube and Mondomedia.com.
