Hot Potato is a Happy Tree Friends Flash game published on the Mondo website. This game involves the player juggling a grenade for as long as possible without letting it hit the floor.


It’s a pot-luck party and everyone’s decided to bring something to share! Flippy has shown up with the baked potatoes… only he’s made his own bombastic substitutions to the recipe.[3]


Hot Potato gameplay.

Hot Potato is played with a mouse. A grenade is dropped on the play area. Clicking on it once will make it bounce, after which the player has to keep it juggled without letting it hit the floor. A successful click on the grenade is worth 1 point.

The objective of the game is to score as much as possible before the grenade hits the floor and kills all the guests.



Differences from Dynamit

Dynamit (or Dynamite for the mobile version), a Happy Tree Friends Flash game produced by Christian Gull that serves as the basis for Hot Potato.

The game is a remake of the previous fan game Christian Gull created titled Dynamit. There are a few differences in comparison between the two.

  • Dynamit has the player juggle the titular dynamite instead of a grenade.
  • Dynamit takes place in an empty interior instead of a house party.
  • Nutty has the same Pac-Man-shaped eyes like the rest of the Happy Tree Friends and is missing his tail and lollipop.
  • Cub is present in Dynamit.
  • All characters' eyes are shaded on the edges.
  • There is no background music.
  • The dynamite is quicker to touch the ground after it is clicked compared to the grenade.
