** A common theory among the fanfics I've read is that the [[NegativeContinuity regenerating and returning from the dead]] is an effect of the setting (as in, once you leave the setting, your next death [[{{Permadeath}} will be your last]]). As such, it's implied that injuries such as Handy's amputated arms and Russell's peg legs for that matter occured before the characters came to live in the setting of the show and thus those injuries could not be reversed upon their deaths. Whether or not this works for ''mental'' ills such as [[ShellShockedSenior Flippy's]] remains to be seen. Granted, [[FridgeLogic this theory doesn't hold]] for ''W.A.R. Journel'', but whatever.

** The NegativeContinuity could also be explained as each episode taking place in an alternate universe and we simply haven't seen one where Handy or Russel didn't go through these past accidents.

*** He's not a Tree Friend, but Sneaky is an anthropomorphic lizard. There are also The Ants, though whether or not they count as anthropomorphic is debatable.

* Just what exactly is with Mole? His severe incompetence can't be attributed to just his blindness. While the blind do have a difficult time doing things that people who can see take for granted, those born visually impaired can still navigate their surroundings without much trouble and with a basic awareness of what's around them. The way Mole acts seems like he just got blinded yesterday. Also, is Mole deaf too? Alot of loud stuff happens around him but acts completely oblivious to it as he continually walks toward danger.

** There isn't really any logic to the way injuries in Happy Tree Friends work. Certain characters have permanent injuries that never heal-Handy always has no hands, Russell is always missing both legs and one arm, Cro-Marmot is always stuck in a block of ice-while other characters suffer the same injuries and come back in the next episode-Petunia loses her hands in "I Nub You", Sniffles gets frozen in "Tongue Twister Trouble"-and it's all dependent on what the plot requires.

** Assuming Mr. Pickels is imaginary, it seems all Happy Tree Friends are mammals.

** Time always resets to a specific point, and by that point Handy already had no hands.

* This is more the fandom rather than the series itself. As a YaoiFangirl, I understand entirely about making the human representations of the Happy Tree Friends characters bishounen. (Yes, I'm looking at you, Japanese Fandom.) And of course, as the most prominent EnsembleDarkhorse of the series, Flippy is one. The problem is... if the theory about him fighting in VietnamWar was right, Flippy should be around 40 years old. ''Freaking 40 years old,'' '''not a teenager with {{BishieSparkle}}'''. I seem to be contradicting myself for saying that I'm a YaoiFangirl, but I'm one that don't mind an older guy in the gang. My point is, why can't they just make him a lot older?

** On the [=HTF=] wiki, it says that [[WordOfGod Navarro]] said that they would be back for the sake of tongue and bad hearing-related gags if there were more KA-POW!-episodes.

** He's just crazy in general, I guess, without any particular specific illness. ** He has PTSD.

** Since they never show up again, I'm inclined to say the that they are dead, but since Flippy's hands were cut of in that episode and they've grown back by now, its possible that they came back.
