HTF Episode Description

What's more fun than trying your luck at midway games? It might be harder than you think if you can't see, but give it your best shot and win a squeezable prize!


All the Happy Tree Friends are having the time of their lives at the carnival, though at one booth a lot more is happening. As Petunia is playing at Lumpy's carnival stand, throwing baseballs to knock down milk bottles, a blind lavender mole known only as The Mole hears the noise going on at the booth, and decides to give it a go.

The Mole puts money forward to play and, even though he sees that The Mole is blind, Lumpy sees no harm in letting him play. Lumpy takes the money and gives The Mole two balls. He throws the first one and it bounces all over the stand like rubber. The Mole stumbles to get his second ball, but he knocks it off the stand, causing him to duck. Eventually, the support beams holding the window to the booth open are knocked away, sending the window falling down on Petunia. When all is said and done, Petunia is now missing the top half of her head.

With one ball left The Mole makes another attempt, unaware that the window has closed. The ball bounces off the wall and hits a lever to the Ferris wheel, causing it to spin out of control. This flings 18 Generic Tree Friends on the Ferris wheel off in random directions and causes the Ferris wheel to come off its hinges.

It speeds towards the stand where Lumpy sticks his head out the window to see the Ferris wheel rushing towards him. He tries to get away but the wheel cuts him (as well as the booth, and crushes the remains of Petunia) in half, causing his intestines to fall out of his body. In all of the confusion, The Mole gets his prize: a blood-spattered teddy bear, which he hugs.
