Flippin' Burgers is an episode of the Happy Tree Friends internet series, the fourth of the second season, and thirty first overall.
HTF Episode Description
Fast food is an integral part of our culture, and it's no different in the world of Happy Tree Friends. Yes, they might use different condiments than we do, but even fluffy cute creatures have to eat. Did you want extra sauce with that? Good eatin'!
At a small burger joint in the middle of the woods, the Happy Tree Friends enjoy lunch. Petunia is hard at work cooking the burgers, while Cuddles and Giggles are eating together. Cuddles tries to squirt some ketchup on their fries, but he accidentally squirts it on Giggles.
At just that moment, a happy and hungry Flippy opens the door. he sees Giggles covered in ketchup and suddenly goes into a trance. Though Cuddles and Giggles laugh about the incident, Flippy sees the ketchup as blood and then imagines Giggles as a bloody corpse, flipping out.
Fliqpy jumps over to their table and flips it over, causing fries to fly everywhere. Cuddles turns his attention to Fliqpy, but he doesn't seem too worried as he continues sipping on his drink through a straw. Fliqpy grabs Cuddles' straw and uses it to stab him in the heart. Blood starts pouring out of the straw and, in a panic, Cuddles drinks his blood through the straw to get it back into his body. This doesn't work, and then he soon dies.
Giggles screams and looks around the room, having lost sight of Fliqpy. He emerges above her and shoves a ketchup bottle in one of her ears and a mustard bottle in the other. He squeezes both bottles as hard as he can, causing ketchup and mustard to pour out of her nose, killing her.
Next, Fliqpy goes behind the grill where Petunia is standing. He grabs her by the back of the head with her screaming and shoves her face down on the burger grill, causing her to shriek in anguish. Laughing madly, he pulls her head up, revealing that the grease has melted her face onto the grill, exposing her facial nerves. With Petunia still screaming, he shoves her face back onto the grill, grotesquely burning it.
Outside the building, Petunia's screaming stops, indicating that she has died. Pop and Cub get ready to enter. Before they can open the door, however, the front of the building explodes, crushing the two beneath the door. Generic Tree Friends rush out, jump out, and get tossed out of the building while on fire. Back inside, Fliqpy lands on the ground, just before the fries. Seeing a pool of Cuddles' blood, Fliqpy grabs a fry and dips it in the blood, mistaking it for ketchup. Fliqpy eats the fry and sighs contently upon tasting the blood.

- When Cuddles squirts ketchup, his legs are on his belly instead of where they should be (later fixed).
- When Cuddles and Giggles start laughing at the ketchup accident, Cuddles' nose briefly detaches from his philtrum and moves away from his mouth. Similarly, when Giggles laughs, half of her nose is on her buckteeth (these are fixed on the DVD).

- When Cuddles is holding his drink, his arms are attached to his cheeks (this is fixed in the DVD).
- When Cuddles is holding his drink, his slipper suddenly appears.
- The crest on Flippy's beret switches places several times.
- Cuddles is holding his drink with his right hand, but when he turns around the cup switches to his other hand.
- Fliqpy makes the fries fly in the air, but they don't land until the end of the episode. (Debatable, as it may have been done to showcase how fast Fliqpy kills the characters or for comedic effect.)
- When Cuddles is watching Fliqpy flip over the table and take the straw out of his drink, his right pupil is smaller than his left. This is fixed when Cuddles screams after the straw stabs him.

- When Fliqpy kills Giggles, his pupils are black.
- When Fliqpy is killing Giggles, her mouth flashes for several frames.
- There should be no way for the ketchup and mustard Fliqpy squeezes into Giggles' ears to travel to her nose.

- Cub is bigger in this episode then he usually is, almost as big as Pop.
- Cub's beanie stays on his head when he's crushed by the door.
- Petunia's body is lying next to Cuddles and Giggles' bodies, when she should be near the grill.
- Even though he's still flipped out, Flippy's eyes return to normal before he picks up the French fry. (Debatable, as he might have changed back to normal but flips out again after he tastes the blood.)
- When Fliqpy is about to eat the fry at the end, his nose lowers and half of his philtrum can be seen over his nose.
- When Fliqpy picks up the french fry and begins to eat it, his rank insignia appears underneath his arm instead of on the outside of his sleeve.
