Character Bio

A canary-yellow rabbit with pinkish cheeks who inexplicably wears pink bunny slippers. Cuddles is one of the primary characters in the series. Like Giggles, Toothy and Lumpy, he appears in many of the advertisements.

Both his white fluffy curly hair tuft and cotton tail look exactly the same. His ears move to match how he feels.

Cuddles' personality is somewhat mixed. On one hand he can be dangerously mischievous. Also he can be self-centered. Both of these characteristics can lead to both his death and other characters deaths. On the other hand he is also friendly and caring, making his personality more complex than the others. He was seen to have multiple houses, but his official one is known to be a Hollow Tree, as it is the only one to appear more than once ("In a Jam" and "Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow")

He is particularly good friends with Toothy and Flaky and Lumpy. Cuddles and Giggles are also very close friends, and it has been hinted several times they each have crushes on each other.

Cuddles in "From Hero to Eternity Pt. 1".

With a number of 45 deaths, Cuddles is the character who gets killed most times in the Happy Tree Friends franchise. He is also the character who has, so far, been killed by Flippy and Lumpy the most (though, to be fair, Flippy generally kills everyone in episodes in which he is featured and Lumpy's stupidity usually causes all the other characters deaths). While he still dies a lot in the TV series, Cuddles has survived several times ("Doggone It", "Sea What I Found", "A Change of Heart", "A Sight For Sore Eyes" and "Letter Late Than Never") and some of his deaths are not confirmed ("Mime To Five" and "Concrete Solution") and survived in the Internet episode "We're Scrooged". He tends to die some of the messier deaths such as being sliced to bits by helicopter blades, ceiling fans, exploding, and slithering through a treehole as a bloody mush.

Cuddles, is one of the characters to have an account on MySpace. It mentions that he is actually allergic to carrots because they make him choke, which is possibly evidenced by the 'Feed' section of his Smoochie. In addition, it mentions he collects powerful antique electric toothbrushes and his fur is highly protected from the sun.

He may look like a cute, cuddly, and sweet bunny rabbit (which is why his name is Cuddles) on the outside. But on the inside, he's known as the rebellious type of a Happy Tree Friend character with his talents of extreme sports like skateboarding, surfing, soccer, and he applies as a daredevil in "Mime to Five". Cuddles loves listening to rock music, and he tries to play the electric guitar, but he needs more practice. He is also a big fan of "The Happy Tree Band."

Cuddles was the very first character to be created and therefore is one of the four main characters of the series, but even more so than that, he is also the primary character used for advertisements, commercials, and promotions and because of that he had additional death scenes that are featured in various promos. These additional deaths are original and official promos drawn and voiced by the creators just like any other death scene shown in the Internet or TV series.
