Happy Tree Friends is an animated video series created and developed by Aubrey Ankrum, Rhode Montijo, Kenn Navarro and Warren Graff for Mondo Media. The show is cited as an example of achieving a cult following. The series is best known for its mixture of cute cartoon anthropomorphic forest animals and extreme graphic violence. Each episode revolves around the characters enduring accidental or deliberately inflicted events of bloodshed, pain, mutilation, dismemberment, evisceration and/or death. At one point, there was a warning given to the site “Cartoon Violence: Not recommended for small children or big babies”.
Deep Space 69 - 1999: Beginning - Netflix
While working on Mondo Media, Rhode Montijo drew on a piece of scrap paper a character who would later become Shifty. He then drew on a spreadsheet poster a yellow rabbit that bore some resemblance to Cuddles and wrote “Resistance is futile” underneath it. Rhode hung the drawing up in his workstation so other people could see his idea, and eventually the idea was pitched to and accepted by the Mondo Media executives. In 1999, Mondo gave Aubrey Ankrum, Rhode Montijo and Kenn Navarro a chance to do a short for them. They came up with a short named Banjo Frenzy, which featured a dinosaur (an earlier version of Lumpy) killing three woodland animals, a rabbit, squirrel and beaver (earlier versions of Cuddles, Giggles and Toothy) with a banjo. From there, Mondo gave them their own Internet series, which they named Happy Tree Friends.
