Much funniness coming to you courtesy of the inimitable ScaryDuck, who alerted the world to it.
It's a whole slew of joyous animations for kids of all ages! They're called The Happy Tree Friends and you should all go to the site and see the animations right now! NOTE: Animations actually not appropriate for children at all. They will be scarred for life.
These little gems are beautifully animated, and the characters are charming. The music is annoying and funny and will get stuck in your head so badly that you'll want to shriek and tear out your own hair. The fact that every episode ends in gruesome bloodshed didn't stop me from laughing hysterically at 2 o'clock in the morning and worrying my hallmates!
I especially like Splendid the flying squirrel because he has a cool mask, and also Flippy the bear war veteran who is prone to violent flashbacks. But so charming! I love it!
I also laughed out loud at the little beginning animation that's on some of the episodes involving all of the characters in one of those stuffed-animal-claw-vending-machine things. Oh, how I laughed.
So go see The Happy Tree Friends, unless, of course, you haven't got much stomach for blood and guts and gore and violence. But with pretty colors! And happy music! And the sounds of children laughing!
la la la, la la la la. la la la, la la la la.
Ha HA! And I skip off to bed.
