Dream Job is an episode of the Happy Tree Friends Internet series, the ninth (and final) of Season 4, and 87th overall.
PlotSniffles has built a dream helmet connected to a TV, and then places the helmet on his head and promptly goes to sleep. Sniffles' dream, which appears to be him peacefully relaxing on a hammock at a tropical island, is displayed on the TV screen. All of a sudden, Lumpy, who is cleaning Sniffles' hotel room, suddenly arrives, finds the remote, and decides to watch TV, unaware that it was wired to Sniffles' helmet.
Lumpy changes the channel, bringing Sniffles to the Old West where he is impaled by three arrows. The channel changes again to bring Sniffles under the sea. Then Sniffles is brought into outer space, where he is frozen and a speeding comet smashes him to bits.Unsatisfied with the "shows", Lumpy clicks the remote again. Sniffles is shown alive again, with a tray of cookies and he proceeds to put them in an oven. However, the channel is flipped and he quickly ends up in a guillotine to be decapitated by Fliqpy under orders from Disco Bear, who is a king. Next, he is put on a game show and spins a wheel, but the channel changes yet again so he only ends up detonating a bomb. Sniffles then winds up in a war zone and gets smashed by a large door.
Now, Sniffles finds himself swinging from a vine, but then abruptly smashes into a tree, penetrating a stick through his heart. Then, he is shown completely tied up with rope and being roasted on a spit over a bonfire. He is then impaled by a metal pipe that comes out of nowhere. After that, Giggles gives him a massage, which relaxes him until his bed inexplicably closes on him.As Lumpy keeps clicking the remote, he overpowers the TV, causing the screen to go black. He finally leaves, and Sniffles has become mentally traumatized from the whole ordeal, evidenced by his now light-grey pupils.
The next day at the hospital, Petunia brings him to watch TV, which shows the island from the beginning of last night's program, worrying Sniffles, showing he may have developed PTSD from the whole fiasco.
