A Pleasant Interlude With Happy Tree Friends

Happy Tree Friends
With Ken Pontac (Writer) & Warren Graff.
Also categorized as Guests, Panels.

Remember the first time you saw Happy Tree Friends, before you knew what the joke was? You kind of wondered what your friend who said, “Dude! You have to check this out!” was so excited about. It was just a bunch of cute little animals doing stupid things until, suddenly…something happened and you got the joke. Series writers Ken Pontac and Warren Graff LOVE to see people get the joke for the first time, so bring a friend who’s never seen the show, and blow their minds a little.
