Cinedigm to Distribute Happy Tree Friends
Cinedigm has recently announced that they will be distributing Mondo Media’s library of animated shows in theaters, VOD, home video, and digital. The slate includes the hit American mature flash cartoon Happy Tree Friends, which is often cited as one of the earliest examples of an Internet animated show achieving a cult following.
Happy Tree Friends is drawn using a simple, kiddie-oriented style and features cute forest animals. However, the childlike visuals is a mere façade as the episode also contains extremely graphic violence.
Cinedigm’s release of 13 Happy Tree Friends 30 minute episodes will include several never before seen episodes and bonus materials. There are also 75 short films based on the same series.
