Human Skeleton

Humans are sentient mammals that don't appear in Happy Tree Friends; instead their role is taken by anthropomorphic animals. In early episodes, humans seemed to be absolutely nonexistent in the Happy Tree Friends world. However, later episodes seemed to imply human existence.

Whether humans ever existed or not in the Happy Tree Friends world is debatable. Perhaps the skeleton and the other evidence was meant to portray other "anthropomorphic" primates, like Buddhist Monkey and Sensei Orangutan. It is unknown if humans will truly appear in in the show (though unlikely). If they do, it is unknown what they would look like in Happy Tree Friends style.

Despite the evidence, Kenn Navarro confirmed that humans do not exist in the world of Happy Tree Friends.

These instances imply evidence that humans do (or at least did) exist in the Happy Tree Friends world.

  • A stoplight in And the Kitchen Sink appears to show both human and HTF traits. A happy tree friend silhouette is seen for the "Walk" sign, but a human's 5-fingered hand (rather than a tree friend's 4-fingered or mitten-like hand) is used for the "Don't Walk" sign. However, this doesn't happen in Something Fishy, where only happy tree friend silhouettes are used for the bathroom signs.
