I just finished designing and directing a Happy Tree Friends episode entitled “Protecting the Slopes.” This happens to be one of their “irregular” episodes where a guest director redesigns the show in an entirely different style. So far the cast has been portrayed in a black and white, 1920s “rubber hose” style and a high-action, anime style. My treatment is a late 1940s/early 1950s cold war industrial film style. Lumpy demonstrates how to become an elite member of the ski patrol in this instructional film.
