"House Warming" is the second episode of Happy Tree Friends' first season. This episode is the first to introduce Petunia and Handy.

Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Happy Tree Friends website: "Handy, the resident carpenter beaver with no hands, builds Petunia a lovely new home. How does he do this with no hands? Some secrets may never be revealed! The project turns into a disaster when a fire breaks out and Handy has to come to Petunia's rescue."[2]

Plot[edit | edit source]

The episode starts with Petunia watching Handy build her new treehouse. She thanks Handy, and she climbs up her tree. Right before Handy leaves, Petunia's house catches on fire. Handy frantically runs next to the burning treehouse to try to catch Petunia. She jumps out of the house but falls face flat on the ground. Handy, acting paranoid, tries to find a way to get rid of the fire. He finds a fire hydrant only to realize he does not have hands. He then finds a bucket which he assumes is full of water. He knocks the bucket with his foot, only for the flames to grow bigger, realizing it is gasoline. As a last resort, Handy tries to stomp the fire with his boot, rescuing Petunia and hurting her in the process. Now, all weak, she raises her hand and makes the okay sign.
