Many cartoons are known to recreate everyday situations or scenarios by altering real-life logic, thus making the scenes look ridiculous, unpredictable and somewhat unrealistic. While Happy Tree Friends sometimes follows real-life logic, it is popular for turning ordinary situations into gruesome deaths and injuries which simply cannot happen in the real world.

Below are instances where characters have experienced deaths or injuries which, in real life, would have turned out very differently and usually end up with less dramatic results.


Episode & Scenario(s) Real Life

Happy Tree Friends Cuddles eye

Banjo Frenzy: Is hit by a banjo. Would be injured and bruised. He is vertically sliced in half by Lumpy's banjo.
Spin Fun Knowin' Ya/Blast from the Past: Tries to hold on to a merry-go-round pole and flies into a plane. Would have really just fell off on the ground. It would have taken a lot more power to do this. Gets his arms ripped off; flies into the jet of the plane and is shredded by the engine.
Water You Wading For: Jumps in a pond filled with animals that beat up and mutilate him. None of the events of the episode would be possible as none of the animals that appear in the pond (excluding the piranhas) would ever be found there. Gets knocked back and forth by seals; bitten in half by an alligator; is crushed by a whale.
Sweet Ride: Skates into a staircase. Would have tripped and skinned himself, and receive a few other injuries as sell. Got his head and torso sliced by the staircase.
Happy Trails Pt. 1: Window closes on Cuddles. Would have gotten stuck in the window or get hit by it. Got his upper body and hands cut off by the window.
Flippin' Burgers: Fliqpy shoves a straw into his chest. A straw is too weak to do this much damage; it would have bent. However, if it hit his neck right next to his trachea, it could do this. However, the wound would be too low for this to actually cause fatal injury. If it did impale him, it would have taken much longer for Cuddles to lose enough blood to die. Cuddles is impaled by a straw and bleeds to death.
Class Act: Pushed through the door in his costume. Would have been pushed out of the door since his costume would break. Brutally pushed through the hole of his costume, turning him into a bloody mush.
Keepin' it Reel: Fliqpy swings Flaky at him, using her as a weapon. Would have had Flaky's quills stuck to his face. Was smacked in the face, lost some teeth, and passed out.
Let It Slide: Slides into a broken water slide tunnel. Would have had his feet cut slightly. Other than that, he would've stopped moving once hitting the slide. Got vertically cut in half by the slide.
From A to Zoo: Eye impaled by a helium tank. His eye would have been put out. His eye inflated due to the helium, and was turned into a balloon.
Party Animal: Got his neck tied to balloons by Fliqpy and is carried up into a celing fan. Would have been slightly choked. A wooden ceiling fan is too weak and slow to slice someone. If anything, the balloon strings should've stopped the fan from spinning, causing Cuddles to suffocate. Was lifted into the air by the balloons and got sliced up by a ceiling fan.
Ipso Fatso: Crashes his car into a tree. He would have either died in the crash or would have been injured Crashes his car into a tree, where his body is forced through a knot in tree.
A Hole Lotta Love: Small pieces of glass cut his body. Would have received very little (if any) minor cuts. But seeing how an entire window fell on him, he would've been badly injured. His body gets sliced to pieces by the glass.
Blast From the Past: Is flung up into space by Lumpy with a seesaw. No amount of force from a seesaw could launched Cuddles into space in the first place. He is launched into space; freezes and shatters when a satellite hits him.
See What Develops: Is frozen by Splendid's breath. Splendid's heat vision should've simply melted the ice. He shatters into cubes when Splendid tries to melt him with his heat vision.
Aw, Shucks!: Is struck by a railroad crossing gate. Would have been hit on the head. Is vertically sliced in half.
Wingin' It: Lumpy pushes his chair into Cuddles' torso. Would have been slightly jabbed in the stomach. Half of his body got cut off, with only his intestine keeping him united.
Easy Comb, Easy Go: Accidentally drinks hair growth formula. This could never happen in reality. The hair growth formula causes hair to grow inside his body and suffocate him.
In a Jam: Is injected with chair cushioning. There isn't any liquid inside chairs, so Cuddles' death wouldn't be possible in the first place. Also, his body should've burst from that amount of cushioning. His body turns into a recliner.
Junk in the Trunk: Is lifted towards a pulley by the weight of an elephant. Cuddles would've just hit the pulley and fall. Has his entire body forced through the pulley.
Autopsy Turvy: Cro-Marmot gets pushed into Cuddles and Toothy by a van. Would have been knocked out of the way. Got crushed by Cro-Marmot.
Strain Kringle: Impaled by his telescope when hit by a rock. The rock would have possibly knocked him out of the tree, as it was not thrown hard enough to force the telescope into his eye. He also could've gotten a black eye as well. The telescope is hit and forced through Cuddles' eye.
Peas in a Pod: A Pod Lumpy attacks him with a mop. There is no way anyone could ever be killed by the soft end of a mop. Is killed by a mop.
Buns of Steal: Lifty's veins and arteries tied to two trucks push his neck against a tree. A bunch of soft cord-like tubes like veins or arteries, though being connected to two trucks, aren't capable of something else than just pushing someone's neck a little, and then they would just rip off. Lifty's veins and arteries push Cuddles' neck against a tree, decapitating him.


Episode & Scenario(s) Real Life Happy Tree Friends Faceless
Banjo Frenzy: Is hit by a banjo. Would be injured and bruised. She is decapitated by Lumpy's banjo;
Spin Fun Knowin' Ya/Blast from the Past: Flies into a tree stump. Would have really just fell on the ground. It would have taken a lot more power to do this. Gets split in half from flying into the tree stump.
Helping Helps: Hits a tree branch when being carried by Splendid. Would have really been slightly injured by the tree branch. Is beheaded by the tree branch.
You're Bakin' Me Crazy: Has an eggbeater launched into her face. Would be badly bruised when the eggbeater bounces off her face. Has her eyes and brain mutilated by the eggbeater.
Flippin' Burgers: Has a mustard and ketchup bottle forced into her ears. Nothing would happen, besides that her ears would be clogged with ketchup and mustard. The mustard and ketchup goes from her ear drums to out her nose, causing her to suffocate.
Eyes Cold Lemonade: A wooden sign swings toward her face. Would have been hit by the sign and mildly scratched up. The sign rips the skin off her face.
Class Act:A sandbag falls on her costume with her inside. The gift costume would have broken from the force of the sandbag, but her face would be slightly injured. The sandbag forces the costume to the point where it rips off her face.
Every Litter Bit Hurts The Mole sticks her in the back with a litter picker. She would have been poked by the litter picker, and it might've broke skin and possibly draw a little blood, but no further than that. The picker goes all the way through her, punching her heart out of her chest.
Mime to Five: Eaten by killer ducks. There are no such things as killer ducks. Killer ducks eat her alive.
Blast From the Past: Gets caught in a swing set. Would hit the swing set. She is crushed to death by the ropes of the swing set.
Gems the Breaks: She and Petunia get killed by Splendid's vomit. Would have just been splashed with vomit. Got splattered and killed by vomit. (This may be one of Splendid's powers)
Letter Late than Never: A sweater shrinks on her body. The sweater would only slightly shrink and feel tight overtime, clothes cannot shrink this quickly. The sweater shrunk and crushed her body, making her head come off and deflate like a balloon.
Junk in the Trunk: Is covered by a wet poster. Her weight alone would force the poster to fall off the brick wall, or she could've ripped through it. She suffocates.
Double Whammy Part I: Gets her eyes caught in a propeller. A propeller for a carnival ride wouldn't be designed to spin fast enough to do any serious damage; The worst that would happen is that her eyes would've been torn out of her head. Giggles' organs are torn out of her body.
Swelter Skelter: Slides down a hot slide. A heatwave could never get a slide to that scolding temperature.

The flesh from Giggles' ass is melted off by the heated slide.

Butter Me Up: Hot butter splashes on her face. Hot butter cannot cause her face to melt, her face would be slightly burned. The hot butter melts her face and eye.
On My Mind: Flippy pushes a rose stem into the side of Giggles' head. A rose stem is too weak too perform this, and would've bent. The rose stem is poked through Giggles' brain all the way to the other side of her head.
Royal Flush: Sliced through the head by poker cards. Would have been hit by the cards. Sliced in numerous places, and soon it slices her into complete pieces.
All In Vein: Crushed like a soda can. It is impossible for a person to flatten someone with just bare hands. Lumpy flattens Giggles using only his hands. (This may be due to Lumpy being a vampire and therefore likely having super strength.
Buns of Steal: Is hit by a piece of metal from a truck. Would've been badly cut in the waist. Is sliced in half.
Spare Tire: Road signs fall on her. Road signs are too weak to slice somebody in thirds; Under such a condition, she would certainly die. Her lower torso (with a piece of her ribs and spine) and legs are cut off; Sniffles revives her simply by replacing her torso with a tire and inflating it.


Episode & Scenarios Real Life

Happy Tree Friends Happy Tree Friends - Eye Candy

Banjo Frenzy: Lumpy swings his banjo at him. Would have been mildly injured; It is impossible to survive a injury like that. His head is sliced off by the banjo; Toothy's detached head bites Lumpy's foot.
Spin Fun Knowin' Ya/Blast from the Past: Flies off the merry-go-round and into the tree. He would just fall and hit the ground. It would have taken a lot more power to do this. Slams into a tree violently and breaks his spinal cord.
Treasure Those Idol Moments: The swing seat hits Toothy's head. The swing would have only knocked him over. The swing hits Toothy through the head and knocks out his teeth. (This is most likely an effect of The Cursed Idol).
Mime and Mime Again: His left leg and then his entire body gets pulled into a fan by his bandages. He's too heavy to be pulled away by a miniature fan. The bandage that got stuck in the fan would have simply ripped off, disconnecting Toothy's body with the device. The fan should be way more enormous to actually pull him up. Got his left leg severely broken and then his body is sliced to pieces by a little fan.
Eye Candy: Trips over a log, forcing a lollipop into his eye socket. At the worst, his eye or face would have been slightly wounded. The lollipop is stuck through his eye socket.

Ski Patrol: Is inflated by an oxygen tank. Would suffocate or burst. He inflates like a balloon and starts to float.
Ipso Fatso: Becomes too weak to lift up a barbell and drops it on his neck. He would be choked a bit and have to deal with the barbell being stuck on his face/neck. Seeing how he was able to lift it with great effort, he could've been able to lift it off his neck. Gets decapitated by the barbell.
Snow Place to Go: Russell pulls on his fishing rod after the hook is sent deep into Toothy's arm. A section of flesh would have been torn off of Toothy's arm. Toothy's veins and arteries are pulled out of his body. As extra cartoonish humor, the veins scream.
Blast from the Past: Toothy flies into Lumpy because of the slide. Would have went down the slide and stopped normally. Flew through Lumpy's torso and seemingly died.

Autopsy Turvy: Cro-Marmot gets pushed into Cuddles and Toothy. Would have been knocked out of the way. Got crushed by Cro-Marmot.
We're Scrooged: Injured and killed by wind-up chattering teeth toys. Chattery teeth toys are not capable of this type of damage. He would receive very little injury. A chattery teeth toy bites off Toothy's finger, then more of them tear him to pieces when he falls into the toy box.
The Carpal Tunnel of Love: Hit by a door. Would slightly bruised by the force of the door. Is crushed to death.

Episode & Scenario(s) Real Life Happy Tree FriendsLumpy Blind Date

Rink Hijinks: Gets stuck in a toy machine with a functioning claw crane. Claw cranes do not move fast to have enough power to go right theough someone's chest. It would've just landed on his body then go back up. The claw rips into Lumpy's body and pulls out his heart.

Mime to Five: Attacked by ducks. There are no such things as killer ducks. Killer ducks eat him alive and tear him apart.
Letter Late than Never: Maimed by a turtle. There is no turtle in the world that can eat a full-grown moose alive, or devour anything that big within a few seconds, mostly for such size. Aside from that the fall should've killed him instantly. A turtle ate him foot first and devoured him within seconds.
Wingin' It: Falls from a great height to the ground. Would have plummeted and splattered. Lumpy's body is shortened, with some bones sticking out of his shoulders.
In a Jam: Stands close to a speaker playing a sustained guitar note. His ears would've been badly injured, and he would also be dead from noise that loud. He explodes due to the loud vibrations and noise coming from the speaker.

The Chokes on You: Falls onto a conveyor belt. Would have fallen off when at the end of the conveyor belt. Lumpy is turned upside down and torn to pieces when his antlers got stuck.
Home Is Where the Hurt Is: A bed falls on him. Would have been hit by the bed. Crushed by the bed and torn in pieces through a vent.
By The Seat Of Your Pants: Skins himself by crawling out of a window. He could have either just crawled out or remained stuck, depending on how easy the window can be opened and closed. Flippy shuts the window on Lumpy's waist, and he tears off half his skin to escape.
Pet Peeve: Attacked by a little bird. He would've been only injured a bit. Lumpy is shredded by the bird, or more birds would've arrived to attack him,
In Over Your Hedge: Flippy uses a rope to stop Lumpy. A rope is tied around Lumpy's head. Lumpy would just trip on the rope and fall over; Lumpy's neck would break. Lumpy's feet are cut off by the rope. Lumpy's head spins off and floats in the air.
Blood Donor Dies from blood loss. While blood loss inevitably would happen, it would take a very long time for death to occur, especially considering how Lumpy is one of the taller characters. Lumpy dies almost instantly when he starts transferring his blood to Giggles.

Happy Tree Friends Htf read em and weep

Keepin' it Reel: Fliqpy rams her head into a popcorn machine and holds it over a flame. Her head would have burnt over time. Her brain pops like popcorn.

Petunia's Summer Smoochie:
  1. Attacked by a large shark in her pool.
  2. A pinwheel spins in her face.
  3. Water gets stuck in a hose.
  1. A shark that size could never fit in a small pool.
  2. Pinwheels, even while spinning, are incapable of killing someone, although Petunia's face would have been slightly injured.
  3. The hose would have burst from that amount of water.
  1. A shark pops out of the pool and attacks Petunia.
  2. Petunia's face is shredded by the pinwheel.

Wishy Washy:

  2. Dies from blood loss after removing both major layers of skin(Dermis and Epidermis) along with all muscle tissue using potato peeler.
False Alarm Episode: Gets hit by a stolen car driven by Nutty while riding her bike. Would have been catapulted. The car would have to be faster and Petunia's waist would have to hit the hood in order for her to be cut; She would have just broke through the windshield. Gets cut in half when the car hits her bike, and then dies when she flies into the windshield, sending her internal organs everywhere.
Read 'em and Weep: Holds onto cupboard handles as she is pulled. She would have let go, or the handle/door she was hanging on to would have come off. Her skin and tail get pulled off.
I Heart U: Mime pretends to shoot a love arrow and blow a heart. It is simply impossible for someone to be hurt this way, as the objects would only be imaginary and, therefore, non-existent. Petunia gets impaled by the dotted lines of the imaginary heart and killed by the love arrow. (Assuming that Mime's imaginary possessions are indeed not real.)
Royal Flush: Her eye and organs are sucked out and head is filled with air by a vacuum. The vacuum should have been more powerful to have pulled out her eye, and she should have bloated over time. In addition to this, a vacuum cannot get stuck on an eye Her eye and organs get sucked out, she is bloated quickly and explodes in only seconds.
I Nub You:
  1. A window suddenly closes and slices her arms off.
  2. She and Handy are crushed by a pinsetter.
  1. The window would cause some pain to her arms and wrists, but not cut them off.
  2. A pinsetter doesn't move that fast in real life, and it's normally incapable of actually killing someone; the pinsetter would become stuck or malfunction.
  1. The window slices her arms off.
  2. The pinsetter moves so fast that it crushed both Petunia and Handy into pins.
Camp Pokeneyeout: She is hit by her own slingshot. The slingshot would have hit her face and she would have suffered a bruise. It would take a lot more force to kill her as depicted in the episode. She lets go off her slingshot, impaling her eyes.
Just Be Claus: Some hot coals ignite around her. Coals cannot burst into flames that fast, and the flames would be rather small. Petunia is set on fire by the coals.


Episode & Scenario(s) Real Life Happy Tree FriendsHalf Handy
Wheelin' and Dealin': Handy's kart plows into a parked ambulance. Would have crashed into the ambulance. His bottom half is cut away when the kart drives under the ambulance, and his intestines fall out of his severed upper torso.
Spare Me: His eye is forced into a soda bottle. There is no way a bottle can sever his eye and be jammed in his eye socket. His face would have hit the bottle, and he also would have gotten a black eye. The bottle is jammed in Handy's socket, while his severed eye bounces inside the bottle.
Shard at Work: Gets a fishbowl stuck on his head. There is no way in logic a fishbowl can be placed over Handy's head. It would of just bounced off of his head and give him a bruise. The fishbowl is on his head, and he can't get it off, and he suffocates due to lack of oxygen.
The Wrong Side of the Tracks: Runs through numerous glass frames. Would have only received cuts. Glass would not have cut him like this, and his hard hat would have protected him. His body is vertically sliced in half.
Blind Date: The engine lid of the truck closes up on his body. Would have been hit by the engine lid. Got cut in half by the engine lid.
From Hero to Eternity: A chunk of ice slices his head. Would have been hit and possibly knocked over by the ice or the will simply crash on his hard hat. Got his head cut in half by the ice.

Easy Comb, Easy Go: Flaky's quills instantly grow after a bottle of hair growth spray hits her. Unfortunately, Handy is sitting next to her. A hair growth formula cannot cause hair to grow this quickly. Flaky's quills quickly grow and impale Handy.
I Nub You: A pinsetter drops on him and Petunia. Would have been mildly injured, and his hard hat should have protected him; they would certainly have died, given how horrible their injury was. They are crushed in pieces; and then revived by Lumpy, who somehow stitches their mangled body parts back together.
No Time Like the Present: Gets stuck in a hole. He would have been stuck. His head is also too big to squeeze through a hole that small. His entire body is forced through a hole in the ceiling.
A Handy Nanny: He is hit in the eye by a pacifier, is splashed by hot milk and has his upper body shredded by the blades of a fan. He would receive a black eye from the pacifier, which would just bounce off. Being splashed by hot milk can't cause swelling or boiling, Handy would have just been burned slightly. His hard hat would have saved him from getting shredded by the blades. Even without his hat the fan clutch would prevent his death. Handy is stabbed in the eye by the pacifier, his face swells up from the hot milk, and his upper body is shredded by a fan.


Episode & Scenario(s)

Real Life Happy Tree Friends S3E11 Swelter Skelter Nutty's death 2
Nuttin' Wrong with CandyHe is crushed by a vending machine. The vending machine shouldn't even work, as for it wasn't even plugged in. If he tried to grab the candy bar, it would be impossible for him to stick his entire arm into the machine. And the coils of the vending machine would not touch him in any way. He is impaled by the vending machine's coils.
Nuttin' but the Tooth: Toothy drils a hole in the back of his head. Nutty would've actually died. He only has a hole in the back of his head, which leaves only a small portion of blood around it.
Double Whammy Part I: Flippy squirts water into his head. Would have spat the water out, drank it, or turned his head in the opposite direction. His head exploded from being filled with water.
Swelter Skelter: Tripped by Lifty and Shifty. Would have simply fell on the ground. His head cracked open like an egg. Also, his brain was fried from the heat and soon looked like an egg with yolk.

Nutty's Party Smoochie:

  1. Burnt by the combusting yo-yo.
  2. He is soon choked by balloons.
  1. There is no way a yo-yo could do this in reality.
  2. Nutty would only be slightly choked and would not be able to be carried in the air.
  1. The yo-yo grinds Nutty's crotch and eventually burns him when it combusts.
  2. He is hanged and killed by the balloons after being lifted too high to reach scissors.

Ipso Fatso: Receives pieces of glass to him

Would be widely injured. Pieces of glass can not do as much damage. Cut in tattered by the pieces of glass.
Easy Comb, Easy Go: Gets impaled by a water sprinkler. The sprinkler would have simply hit him. The sprinkler impales his head and sprinkles out his blood.
Icy You: Stumbled into a sharp hook. Head is caught in an automatic door. Would have hit it, maybe gotten a cut. An automatic door isn't strong enough to splatter someones head, the door shouldn't have even shut since they don't close if someone is standing in between Bursts like a balloon because of his overweight body. His head is crushed by the door.
A Sight for Sore Eyes: A metal "paper" airplane flies into Nutty's eyes; the plane later hits a kite and ties the kite around Nutty. He would have been hit by the metal plane (if it could even exist in reality). The kite's string would not be able to cut up Nutty's body, possibly it would make him fall over. His pupils are cut off; the kite's string splits Nutty into pieces after wrapping around him.
Random Acts of Silence: Flippy puts his arm into a pencil sharpener. It is not possible for a whole arm to fit in a pencil sharpener. Nutty is shredded to death by the pencil sharpener.
Dunce Upon a Time: Eats jelly beans. It is virtually impossible for seeds/beans to grow inside a body. Jelly beans would definitely have no effect on the consumer. The beanstalk should have killed Nutty when it grew to full size.

A beanstalk grows out of Nutty's stomach as a result of swallowing the beans.

Camp Pokeneyeout: A marshmallow hits his eye. Eyeballs aren't liquidly and they don't melt due to heat, Nutty would just have some of the melted marshmallow stuck in his eye.

His eyeball is melted by the roasted marshmallow.


Episode & Scenario(s) Real Life Happy Tree FriendsS3E6 Sniffles
Various episodes where he is sadistically killed by the ants. No type of ant could do this kind of damage - ants may eat their prey by swarming all over them, but it is very unlikely they would attack a grown anteater. However, the ants' in the series may be exempt from this due to their anthropomorphic traits. Sniffles ends up being killed by the ants anyway.
Crazy Ant-ics: One of The Ants pours a mini oil can on Sniffles' tongue and throws the can away down his throat. Then, another one of The Ants lights his tongue with a match. Let's imagine that the miniature oil cans exist. In the first place, if it's spilled all the way through Sniffles' tongue and thrown away down his throat, he can choke on the can and the oil in his tongue would probably intoxicate him. In the second place, if a match lights up his tongue the fire can't make combustion with the oil if it's spilled over a wet surface like an animal's tongue and, for the worst, it can slightly burn his tongue and wipe off in a mere milliseconds.

One of the Ants pours the can all the way through Sniffles' tongue and throws it away down his throat, making it to his stomach. Another ant lights up his tongue, causing the fire to spread all over it until his stomach, and Sniffles' upper half explodes.

Treasure Those Idol Moments: The Cursed Idol curses Sniffles, making him sink in quicksand. In real life, there's no such thing as a "cursed idol" due to the fact that the curses don't exist. Even if the curses and cursed idols existed, it would take Sniffles a long time to entirely sink in the quicksand. This gives him many time to think how to escape them or even find someone to ask help to. The Cursed Idol causes Sniffles to sink in quicksand in a mere seconds, without any chance of saving himself nor asking someone to get him out. (This is probably an effect of the curse.)
Tongue Twister Trouble: Gets his entire tongue scratched off by a cat, then pulled into the icy water and frozen solid. First, there is no way a cat could claw off a tongue in one swipe. Secondly, Sniffles would have drowned, it would take a long period of time for him to freeze. The cat claws off his tongue, and he gets frozen in a block of ice.
Ski Kringle: He and Toothy are hit by Lumpy's skis. Would have been knocked over. Impaled by the skis.
Wingin' It: A food cart gets tilted toward him. Would have been hit by the food cart. The food cart slices and crushes his body.
Tongue in Cheek: He twists his tongue and snout with the paddle. His tongue and snout would be severely mutilated. The paddle spins like a helicopter propeller and pulls out Sniffles' organs.
Peas in a Pod: A Pod Lumpy continuously rubs his face with a cloth, wearing off his face within a few moments. This could not possibly happen this quickly. Much of Sniffles' face is worn off, revealing his skull.
Moppin Up: Slips and falls on the wet mopped floor. Would simply have slipped on the floor and only be hurt slightly. His head cracks open.
Class Act: Nutty bites his arm off. No one's teeth could be strong enough to bite off a complete arm. Sniffles would at least get a small bleeding. His entire arm is bitten off.
Random Acts of Silence: Impaled by pencils from behind. Pencils are too weak for this kind of damage. Sniffles would have just been poked, or slightly bleed, depending on how sharp the pencils were. The pencils are forced through the back of his skull and impale his eyes.
Concrete Solution: Bumps his face into the steering wheel when his ambulance crashes into a car. Depending on how hard he crashed, he may have been knocked out. His face gets crushed by slamming into the wheel.
Idol Curiosity: In an attempt to escape the Idol's curse, he jumps onto a chandelier after he catches Sniffles. Since curses don't exactly exist, Sniffles would've been fine, except he would of had no way out, depending on the type, the chandelier would've possibly broke off. The Idol catches him and he is cut in half after he jumps onto the chandelier.
Something Fishy: Is hit by a flag. He would be hit by Russell's flag. His head is horizontally sliced in half.


Episode & Scenario(s) Real Life Happy Tree Friends Pop corn
Pop's BBQ Smoochie: Eats barbecued corn which, due to a burn from a spark on the grill, heats up and pops inside his body. Being set on fire couldn't possibly cause swallowed corn to pop. The popping corn eventually chokes Pop and/or crushes his organs.
Stealing the Spotlight: Lumpy turns on lights so powerful that they are really deadly. The heat would have burnt Pop's body. Pop's head boils from the heat of Lumpy's lights.
A Vicious Cycle: Is pushed down the stairs by the possessed tricycle and lands on a power box. He would have just hit the power box and fall to the floor. If he did get electrocuted by it, his head would most likely not pop off. Gets stuck to the power box and is electrocuted, causing him to get decapitated.

1. The heat would have burnt Cub's body.

2. Someone could only bleed very slightly when losing a tooth.
