Overview


We're Scrooged! is an episode of the Happy Tree Friends internet series. This is the third Season 3 episode, and fifty-seventh overall.

Plot

"Based on a true story..."

Lumpy steals money from The Mole.

The episode begins with a top hat-sporting and wealthy Lumpy walking along the sidewalk. Suddenly, he comes across The Mole, who is wearing a Santa hat and ringing a bell next to a red bucket for donations. With no one looking, Lumpy silently takes some coins from the bucket and drops a pebble inside, leaving The Mole to assume Lumpy made a donation, which he thanks him for. Lumpy enters a toy store he owns and walks to the back, where Toothy is working on a pair of wind-up chattering teeth. Lumpy hangs his hat on a coat rack and takes a pair of teeth out of a box full of them. He twists the knob, but the teeth don't activate. Toothy reaches over to take the toy from him and investigate the problem, when suddenly the teeth activate and bite one of Toothy's fingers clean off.

Toothy is left to die.

The finger bounces off Lumpy's head and lands near Cuddles, a customer in the store. He picks the finger up and it squirts blood all over his face. Despite Lumpy and Toothy's fears of getting shut down after the incident, Cuddles laughs and shows it to Giggles, who enjoys it just as much. Believing that he will be rich with his "new toy", Lumpy turns to Toothy with grinning eyes and a very careless plan. Toothy, realizing what Lumpy is thinking, backs up and slips on a pool of his blood on the floor. Lumpy saves him from falling into the box of (now activated) chattering teeth, but then lets Toothy fall in upon seeing Cuddles and Giggles playing with the severed finger. Toothy screams in pain and terror as he is bitten and shredded to pieces. Lumpy, on the other hand, only sees dollar signs. He begins selling Toothy's body parts and organs at steadily increasing costs. The box of Toothy's remains runs empty just as Sniffles enters, willing to pay an entire briefcase full of money for a piece of Toothy. Lumpy looks around and spots one of Toothy's kidneys atop a high toy shelf. Upon trying to reach it, he accidentally knocks a spinning top off the shelf, which stabs him in the eye. He attempts to pull it out of his eye by yanking on a string, but this only causes the top to spin and burrow itself deeper into the eye. He finally pulls it out, also removing his eye and optic nerve in the process.

Lumpy tries to convince Sniffles to invest in his store.

An impatient and bored Sniffles begins to leave, but Lumpy beckons him to wait. Thinking quickly, he ties his optic nerve to the end of a paddle and uses his eye as a paddle ball. Sniffles is not amused and leaves the store. Suddenly, the toy shelf Lumpy jumped on earlier begins to fall over. Lumpy tries to outrun it, but ends up getting the lower part of his body crushed by the shelf. His safe then falls on his upper back, inflating his head and hands. Finally, Lumpy's head is crushed by his piggy bank, sending his teeth into the air and onto the counter.

The Mole then enters the store and, in a moment of poetic justice, purchases Lumpy's teeth. But since Lumpy stole his donations earlier, he ends up paying for the "gift" with the pebble Lumpy put in his donation bucket.

Destruction

  1. Toothy's apron is shredded by wind-up teeth.
  2. One of Lumpy's toy shelves falls over.
  3. The bottom of Lumpy's piggy bank breaks.

Goofs

  1. Sniffles has more of a featuring role.
  2. When Lumpy steals the coins from the bucket, The Mole is holding his cane. When Lumpy drops a pebble into the bucket, however, the cane is on the ground. (Debatable, as he may have dropped it.)
  3. The directions of Lumpy's antlers change numerous times throughout the episode, sometimes even during continuous shots.
  4. When Lumpy is walking inside the shop to check on Toothy, Cuddles' head disappears for a split second. His entire body disappears after this and reappears, this time looking in Lumpy's direction.
  5. Cuddles is in his Season 2 design from when Lumpy walks past him to when he discovers Toothy's finger.
  6. When Toothy walks to the chattering teeth Lumpy is holding, they are facing Lumpy. When he gets bitten by them, they are facing Toothy.
  7. It is very strange that the chattering teeth within the box were wound up and killed Toothy, as prior to his death, the chattering teeth were not on.
  8. Some of the teeth that are in the box stop chattering after Toothy dies. (Debatable, as it is possible that their activation period ended.)
  9. As Toothy is being torn apart in the box, his heart clearly is shown flying out of it. However, when Lumpy looks at Toothy's shredded remains later, the heart is in the top-right corner of the box.

    Toothy may be a beaver with two hearts in his organism.

  10. When Toothy is being bitten/torn apart by the chattering teeth, one of his hands flies out of the box. When Lumpy looks into the box, Toothy's other hand can be seen. Even though Toothy previously lost a finger on his right hand, both hands are shown with all four fingers.
  11. Lumpy's hand is never stained by Toothy's blood when he holds one of his organs. It also doesn't get stained with blood when he feels the bottom of the box, only to find that it's empty.
  12. Sniffles doesn't open his suitcase properly. (Debatable, as it may have a switch at the top by the handle.)
  13. It is unknown how Toothy's organ got on the top of Lumpy's toy shelf in the first place. (Debatable, as it may have flown up there when Toothy was killed.)
  14. The moment Sniffles leaves the store, the door suddenly closes, even though he didn't grab the door.
  15. When the shelf tips over, the organ on top isn't shown falling.
  16. Similarly, the blood under the organ on Lumpy's toy shelf isn't shown when the shelf has completely crushed Lumpy.
  17. When Lumpy is crushed by the shelf, his hat stays on his head.
  18. When Lumpy inflates after getting crushed by the safe, he has four fingers and a thumb on both of his hands.
  19. Even though Lumpy clearly runs past the counter to avoid being crushed by the falling toy shelf, when his head is crushed, his teeth fly forward and land on the counter.
  20. The Mole's mole is on the left side of his face at the start of the episode and the right side of his face at the end.
  21. The Mole pays for Lumpy's teeth with the pebble Lumpy had "donated", despite the fact that he was the one collecting the donations. (Debatable, as he may have been collecting donations to purchase toys for the needy.)

Quick Shot Moment

When Lumpy looks away while Toothy gets torn apart by the box of wind-up teeth, there's a brief shot of Cuddles playing with Toothy's severed finger.

This quick shot moment looks exactly like the YouTube thumbnail for this episode.
