Happy Tree Friends Wiki

"If actions speak louder than words then this silent deer never stops talking. His annoying actions will leave you speechless."
―Mime's description on Mondo Media's website.[1]

Mime is one of the main characters of Happy Tree Friends.

Character Bio

Mime designs.jpg

Mime is a purple male deer with pointy ears and antlers who wears face makeup and a navy blue/dark purple and white striped shirt. He never speaks due to the fact that he is a mime, causing others to have a hard time understanding him as a result. Apparently, most of his possessions are imaginary, although they can be stolen (or even shown to be real), as evidenced in Easy For You to Sleigh, Mime to Five, Concrete Solution, Keepin' it Reel, and I Heart U. Sometimes the things around him are imaginary, such as walls in Dunce Upon a Time, which he uses in the name of showmanship. He has even done some obviously impossible things, such as making an audible honking sound while riding a unicycle in Concrete Solution and making noises while interacting with his "imaginary" furniture. It was once said that he's mute, but in some episodes such as Happy Trails Pt. 1, Out of Sight, Out of Mime, Something Fishy, Keepin' it Reel, and I Heart U (Debatable), he has made audible noises (e.g. choking noises, snoring, or blowing noises), making it evident that he can speak, but just chooses not to (although he has been known to not scream even when in severe pain as seen in Double Whammy Part I when his insides were set on fire). This has led to other characters' deaths, such as in Who's to Flame? when his choosing not to talk to Lumpy, a fireman, over the phone eventually led to the destruction of the entire town when Lumpy couldn't understand him and thus hung up.

Mime shows off his circus skills in Mime to Five.

He is talented with circus skills like juggling (which he can do with one hand) and creating balloon animals, though his attempts to entertain his fellow Happy Tree Friends often have fatal consequences. Mime is very fond of peanuts, going as far as to stick his hand in a blender to eat them in Party Animal. In Mime and Mime Again, Out of Sight, Out of Mime, and Class Act he had a tail; he then appeared without it in many later episodes; but he has his tail again in Chill Kringle, his Season 3/4 featuring card, See You Later, Elevator, Random Acts of Silence, and Just Be Claus.

Mime usually rides a unicycle, as is seen in Party Animal, Concrete Solution, Who's to Flame?, As You Wish, A Hole Lotta Love, See What Develops, Junk in the Trunk, and Double Whammy Part I. Sometimes, he stays seated on his unicycle throughout entire episodes.

Mime rarely stars in the series. He appeared in 39 episodes and had 7 starring roles in the series (8 if you count his Smoochie).

He lives in a tent, but the inside looks like a regular house with invisible or imaginary furniture, as can be seen in Easy For You to Sleigh and Mime to Five.

He is often seen with The Mole, which is ironic since they cannot communicate (the best example being Out of Sight, Out of Mime).

Mime's death in Out of Sight, Out of Mime, where The Mole mistakes his head for a pumpkin.

Mime is the only character to survive in only one internet episode, Mime and Mime Again, he is also the only character who does not die in the two TV episodes he stars alone in (Who's to Flame? and Mime to Five). The other episodes in the TV series he survives in are Concrete Solution, Easy For You to Sleigh, A Change of Heart, Easy Comb, Easy Go, and In a Jam. He also survives in I Heart U, Chill Kringle, YouTube Copyright School, and in the HTF Breaks Happy New Year, Take Your Seat, and Tunnel Vision. He dies quick and painless deaths more than any other character, exceptions being Happy Trails Pt. 1, Party Animal, Wingin' It, Double Whammy Part I, and Random Acts of Silence. Like many other characters' deaths, his deaths usually involve his head, metallic objects, or machinery.

Every Time Mime has Mimed (running gag)

Mime being a mime tends to mime a lot of objects, whether or not they or real is unknown since some of them make actual sound effects. In four instances his miming killed another character.

  • A flute is mimed in Mime and Mime Again, which causes one of Toothy's bandages to dance like a snake. A rope is mimed in the same episode and Happy New Year.
  • Peanuts are mimed in Keepin' it Reel, which for some reason make crunchy noises when chewed on.
  • Tears are mimed in Party Animal when Lumpy swipes his peanuts away.
  • A car horn is mimed in Concrete Solution, despite Mime being on a unicycle, a car horn sound is heard.
  • A watch is mimed in A Change of Heart when Mime is waiting in line at a butcher shop.
  • A guitar is mimed in In a Jam.
  • A heart, bow, and arrow are all mimed in I Heart U which injure and kill Petunia. A door leading somewhere else is also somehow used in the episode.
  • An unknown vegetable is mimed in Aw Shucks! for a contest.
  • In Easy For You to Sleigh, the mimed objects include: a sink, water, and towel for washing Mime's face, an egg, pan, and stove for cooking eggs, and a safe which Mime fills with mimed coins.
  • A chair (For Mime to sit in), a dead body (What Mime drags out of the ocean), an umbrella (For the imaginary dead bodies death), a glass door (Which is later replaced with a real one), and a trash can (To hold the balled up Russell hat) are all mimed in Mime to Five.
  • In Who's to Flame?, Mime pretends to suffocate and does the touching an invisible wall trick to explain that a house is on fire.
  • In Who's to Flame? and Home is Where the Hurt is, Mime does a trick where he pretends to walk down a set of stairs.
  • Mime does the trapped in a small box act in Dunce Upon a Time.
  • In A Hole Lotta Love, Mime mimes to Cuddles to warn him about the drill.
  • Mime mimes Godzilla in Wingin' It, even making biting sounds with his mouth.
