General Trivia

  • Lumpy is very similar to Homer Simpson, as both are known for their stupidity, both have held many occupations, both have been shown to eat a lot, and Lumpy's relationship with Cuddles is somewhat similar to Homer's relationship with Bart. Also, Homer in the spin-off Halloween series, Treehouse of Horror, has the most deaths and kills, which Lumpy also has this status.
  • Lumpy is in one of Flaky's baseball cards in Flaky's Baseball Smoochie.
  • His season 3 starring pop up is the only pop-up where his eyes aren't crossed to indicate how dumb he is.
  • Nuttin' but the ToothWrath of Con, and Butter Me Up are the only episodes in which Lumpy appears and makes no audible vocal sounds.
  • Lumpy is also the name of several other fictional characters.
  • Lumpy, along with Lifty, Handy, and Cuddles make a cameo appearance as a totem pole in Gundarr, another Mondo Media show.
  • Lumpy has been shown to enjoy eating meat, which is odd since real moose are herbivores. Then again, the characters of Happy Tree Friends are portrayed as mostly human in behaviour, which this may be an example of. But real moose have been known to chew on their shed antler skin.
  • Most of the time, Lumpy's mismatched antlers change positions, although there have been occasions where this does not happen. This is mostly due to laziness on the animators' part, similar to how Toothy's teeth change from his usual teeth to the standard buckteeth. This goof is easier to notice when Lumpy is looking back and forth.
  • Currently Lumpy has spoken English more than any other character in the show.
  • Lumpy is the third character to come back to life after dying in an episode, as he died in Havin' A Ball and appeared later in Wheelin' and Dealin'.
  • Although Lumpy appears to be an overall nice character and usually does not kill other characters intentionally, he seems to be one of the most hated characters in the show due to his stupidity.
  • Throughout the entire series, Lumpy is always seen with one of his antlers up and the other antler down. There were only two instances where both of Lumpy's antlers were pointing at the same direction, one was in From A to Zoo and the other one was in Concrete Solution.

    Is it just me or does Lumpy look a little bit strange like that?

  • Similar to Flippy, he has cursed at least once in the series. Lumpy said "What the hell?" in Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow and "Come on, goddammit!" in Kringle Feast, and can at times be heard saying "What the fuck?".
  • Lumpy may also be based off Goofy from the Mickey Mouse cartoons, as both have similar personalities, voices, and are the tallest of their respective groups. Ski Patrol, which stars Lumpy, parodies the old Goofy shorts.
  • He might be inspired by Bud Budiovitch and Stereo Monovici from Space Goofs, because of their stupidities and height. But it is believed that his design is inspired by Bullwinkle from The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show .
  • Lumpy can be seen living in his trailer in You're Bakin' Me CrazyStealing the SpotlightNuttin' but the ToothBlind DateBy The Seat Of Your Pants, Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow, and

    Brothers separated at birth? Or cousins?

    In Over Your Hedge. But in Aw, Shucks!, Junk in the Trunk and Peas in a Pod, he has a different, bigger house. 
  • The Camp Lazlo character Scoutmaster Lumpus may be a reference to Lumpy. Most importantly, Lumpy had the position of scoutmaster in Take a Hike and Camp Pokeneyeout.
  • In the "Rocko's Modern Life" episode "Bedfellows", a character looking almost exactly like Lumpy has a car dropped on him. However, this episode was made in 1993, so this is only a strangely accurate coincidence. Also Lumpy may be based loosely on that character.
  • In the Second Servings DVD, Lumpy has his own brand of sponge cakes called "Holiday Kringles", which look like Twinkies.
  • The Fall Out Boy music video The Carpal Tunnel of Love shows him to be allergic to the purple flowers that Cuddles are holding in the video.

  • He can sometimes be selfish and greedy when it comes to money, as can be seen in Mime to Five and We're Scrooged!.
  • The first episode Lumpy was voiced by David Winn in was Remains to be Seen. Even though Rhode Montijo was credited, his voice was sampled, as can be heard after Flippy bit his left arm off and runs off.

    • So all in all, only Pop and Cub have not come into Lumpy's influence, authority, or have worked as a subordinate to the blue moose at least once.

    4. So far he is the only one to be aware of the causes of Flippy's PTSD, since in Without a Hitch and Random Acts of Silenceseveral characters who appear to be aware of Flippy's problem thought that he would flip out randomly, while in Double Whammy Part I Lumpy figured out the cause of his problem and attempted to cure it.

    6. In In Over Your Hedge, he combines a pair of hedge shears with a weed-whacker so he can trim his bushes quicker.
  • Theoretically, with very low IQ, he should have very high EQ, but he seems to be low on both.
  • Kenn Navarro has stated on Twitter that Lumpy is his favorite character design because his "lanky limbs" are fun to animate.
  • Lumpy could be a very popular figure in the HTF universe considering the following facts:
    • Lumpy has interacted with many of the characters, and is quite close friends with most of them.
    • Many of his stores and shops are very successful.
    • In I Get a Trick Out of You, he's a magician for a character's birthday party.
    • In The Wrong Side of the Tracks, he has his own amusement park.
    • In Mime to Five, he has a very successful circus.
    • In Wrath of Con, Cub owns a mask that resembles Lumpy's prototype design in Banjo Frenzy.
    • In Wipe Out!, he's a popular skilled surfer who have won numerous trophies.
    • In In a Jam, he has a band and is admired by Cuddles, who has merchandise of him.
    • In YouTube Copyright School, he's a leader of another band and has his song play in a movie theater. He has another biggest fan in this episode, who is Russell.
  • Some episodes such as A Hole Lotta Love and Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow shows that he's quite fond of beans.


  • The early version of Lumpy was a dinosaur-like animal (eg. Banjo Frenzy).
    • This design is also seen as mask in Wrath of Con, specifically worn by Cub.
  • He appears to have blue eyes in Concrete Solution when looking into a nail gun. In Wishy Washy, however, a close-up of his lifeless body shows his eyes to be intensely green.
  • Lumpy is one of the blue characters. The other four are PetuniaSnifflesSplendid and Truffles.
  • Lumpy is the first character from Happy Tree Friends to wear pants, though they are the same color as his skin.
  • According to the commentary from Spin Fun Knowin' Ya, Lumpy's original antlers were bigger and normal, but the crew decided that he looked too much like Bullwinkle (whom he is based off), so his antlers were made smaller and turned in different directions.
  • Lumpy wears an invisible T-shirt that blends in with his skin. When he takes it off, he can be seen with a tan line, nipples, buttocks, and genitals. He accidentally flashes Giggles in both You're Bakin' Me Crazy and Let It Slide.
  • While most of the characters have visible ears, Lumpy has inner ear holes, as is evident in Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow.
  • Lumpy often shaves his face, even though he physically does not have a beard. However, in the episode Double Whammy Part I he had a beard while he worked as Flippy's psychiatrist. From this, it can be assumed that his natural hair color is black. This is proven false as he had a white beard in Just Be Claus.
  • He has chest hair in Ski Patrol, making him and Disco Bear the only characters with chest hair.

    Lumpy with chest hair.

  • He is the only character apart from Lammy and Mr. Pickels who does not appear with mitten hands. He always has fingers.
  • Lumpy does not have a tail, which is odd as real moose have tails (though tiny stubby ones).
  • Lumpy's mouth has been known to move from below his snout to the tip of his snout. According to Kenn Navarro, this is done mostly to get a better read on his expressions, and partly for cartoonish value
  • Despite Lumpy appearing to not be shown not completely clothed, he is fully clothed in several episodes.
    • This is likely due to the fact as revealed in certain episodes such as You're Bakin' Me Crazy, he actually wears a blue shirt and a pair of blue pants.
