HTF Episode Description

Funny how these two characters end up in another wet, dark, disastrous situation! Stranded in the belly of a whale, Lumpy and Russell pool their resources to find a way out. Will they get eaten alive or do they find their way to freedom? It's an adventure you don't want to miss!


Russell happily sits in his boat, humming and holding a harpoon. As he looks through his telescope, he realizes he's floating in the open mouth of a giant whale. Having no time to react, Russell gets eaten, plunging him into darkness.

Inside the whale with darkness surrounding him, Russell lights a match to take in his surroundings. He finds fish skeletons, treasure, garbage, The Cursed Idol, a puppet resembling Pinocchio and a road raged Lumpy sitting in his car and honking his horn. Lumpy turns on his car's headlights and they both see that they have no way out. Russell, however, gets an idea.

They bundle some sticks together and Russell pulls out a box of matches. Looking inside, they see there's only one match left. After several unsuccessful attempts, Russell manages to light the match, only for Lumpy to sneeze it out. Next, Lumpy lifts Russell up to the whale's uvula. Russell stabs and pulls on it with his hook. This only succeeds making the whale vomit all over them.

Disheartened, Russell and Lumpy find a new hope when they look up and see the whale's blowhole. Russell throws his harpoon towards the blowhole, but unfortunately he misses and the falling object pierces Lumpy's head. Russell starts to go mad, and begins using his hook to slash the inside of the whale's stomach. The whale, feeling the pain of Russell's hook, fires Russell out of its blowhole.

At first, Russell is still laughing and slashing around like a maniac while in mid-air, but he rejoices upon learning that he's free. Sadly, Russell falls from the sky and his head gets impaled on the mast of a nearby ship. His body slowly slides down the mast. Before the episode ends, the whale shows up and swallows up the boat.


"Don't bite off more than you can chew!"


  1. There are numerous dead fish, a decomposing pig, and a cow's skull inside of the whale's stomach.
  2. Lumpy is killed by Russell's harpoon, after Russell fails to hit the skin around the whale's blowhole.
  3. Russell's head gets impaled on the mast of a boat then eaten by the Whale a second time.

  1. On Russell's character card, Russell's hook is on his right hand, but in the episode, it's on his left hand.
  2. Even without a fire, it's still illuminated inside the whale, but the instant Lumpy accidentally puts out the last match, everything goes pitch black.
  3. Lumpy's antlers change directions sometimes.
  4. A whale's blowhole is not connected to its stomach. Thus, Russell and Lumpy wouldn't have been able to see the blowhole since they were swallowed and ended up in the stomach of the whale.
  5. Before Russell and Lumpy try pulling the whale's uvula, there is a dead fish lying to the left side of the shot. However, after the whale reacts to this and the shot cuts back to Russell and Lumpy, the fish has disappeared.
  6. When Russell gets impaled by the ship's mast, the flag on the mast is green, but when Russell slides down, the flag is red. It could just be Russell's blood coating the flag.

Quick Shot Moment

When Lumpy is lifting up Russell so he can grab the whale's uvula, a brief shot of Russel earlier on his boat looking through his telescope is seen.
