Review from the StudioWorks DVD
Everyone's favorite violent animated cartoon is back! After the huge success of the first edition, StudioWorks wasted no time in releasing another DVD jam packed with coolness and gore galore. In this second volume we are treated to 19 episodes of the ever loving and killing HAPPY TREE FRIENDS. Two of them are exclusive to this DVD and are never-before-seen... or so they say! My fav episodes are Tongue Twister, Meat Me For Lunch, This Is Your Knife, Happy Trails Part 2 and Snip Snip Hooray.
These were originaly made for the Internet, yet the animation is pretty good even though basic. The image looks great with beautiful and rich saturated colors. The audio track is loud and aggressive, making the experience all the more enjoyable. Like in the previous edition, we get a wild and funny commentary track with some of the creators of the show. This is a storyboards to final episode comparaison... it sure sounds like they had a blast doing this. There's a segment that "takes us" through the history of "how" the HTF were created which includes a rock version of the HTF theme song! In the Holiday Kringles we get 6 animated holiday cards, all more gorier one then the other. There's also the very good and never-before-seen Buddist Monkey episode. An intimate interview with the frosted prehistorical HTF...
But wait there's more! There's a short but very cool Sing-A-Long to the HTF theme song, an interesting Sound Fx commentary for all the episodes and four very funny and bloody Tamagochi-like "Smoochies" interactive games. The menus are nicely done. The DVD comes in a nice transparent keep case with infos on the back cover but there's no booklet or inlay card.
This is another must own disc... now disc #3 is hopefully not far...
