The new DVDs reflect the enormous success Happy Tree Friends has enjoyed since its emergence in 2000. There have been over 300 million viewings through the website, airtime on television and mobile devices throughout Latin America, Asia and Europe and a weekly show airing on the G4 network in North America. Happy Tree Friends has been in the Top 10 free podcast downloads on iTunes since its debut Christmas week 2005 and boasts an established worldwide merchandise program.
The DVD will consist of the half-hour episodes that air on G4 Network and will feature the following bonus material:
