Harry Partridge (aka [=HappyHarry=]) is a flash animator, who voice acts, writes and scores all of his animations, as well as occasionally doing collaborative works with Chris "Oney" O'Neill (of LeoAndSatan fame) and StuartAshen. He also happens to be the son of Music/{{XTC}}'s Andy Partridge. Your stereotypical Flash cartoon, his are not!

He releases his videos on his [[http://www.youtube.com/user/harrypartridge YouTube]] and [[http://happyharry.newgrounds.com/flash/ Newgrounds]] pages.

----
!!The works of Harry Partridge provide examples of :

* AffectionateParody: Almost all of his cartoons are parodies, if not, direct homages to, stereotypical Saturday morning cartoons of the 80's and 90's.
* AreYouThinkingWhatIAmThinking: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iEq_Fz3bBO8 "Michael The Terrible Boyfriend"]]. [[StrangeMindsThinkAlike In all likelihood]], you're not.
* BavarianFireDrill: Stephen the Lesbian combines this with MindScrew.
* BlackComedy
* BuffySpeak: Animatery, Film-Makery Stuffery(Subtitle: [[BlatantLies Actual Technical Terms]])
* CarryingACake: Subverted at the last second. [[spoiler: The cake is unscathed. The guy who was about to fall into it...[[ImpaledWithExtremePrejudice not so much.]]]]
* CreepyChild: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvFS3U1KO9w Jimmy Tickles]]
* CurbStompBattle: The butch lesbian in "Stephen the Lesbian" has to fight in an arena against a dark phantom beast... which kills her in a single hit.
* CuttingTheKnot: The Starbarians are challenged by Sciad the Snake-Wizard to a game of chance. Since he's able to manipulate fate itself, they instead opt to [[spoiler:beat the crap out of him.]]
* {{Defictionalisation}}: In a video advertising merchandise for his cartoons, Harry talks about Stephen the Lesbian, Gentlemen Clam, and Black Guy with the Brain of a White Guy, among others, then talked about merchandise for his real cartoons. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCTbFN0EsDM Then came the Stephen the Lesbian cartoon.]]
* EverybodyLaughsEnding: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOqHUa2LfNY "Barrrlaaaaa!"]]
* EverythingIsWorseWithBears[=/=]EverythingIsEvenWorseWithSharks: Bearshark.
* EvilLaugh: Jimmy Tickles, [[KickTheSonOfABitch denying death-row inmates their last meals, then laughing as they're executed.]]
* FamilyFriendlyFirearms: Parodied. Bo-Starr's "Stun Ray" ''[[LudicrousGibs blows off Grassman's entire upper half]]'' because Bo-Starr forgot to actually set it to stun.
** Played straight with the {{Watchmen}} [[{{SugarWiki/Watchmen}} parody]], in keeping with the SaturdayMorningCartoon tropes it's laden with.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: In ''Chuck's New Tux'', Chuck says he looks sharp in his new tux. [[spoiler: He ends up impaled on a pointy metal fence at the end of the video]].
* {{Gainaxing}}: [[MeaningfulName Princess Bustilda]]
* HulkingOut: '''''"[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOUjJbhdOZA&feature=relmfu THREE DEE!]]"'''''
* HypocriticalHumor: Stephen The Lesbian's first decree as King of the Lesbians:
--> Stephen: "I shall bang each and every one of you! ...except the ones that look like dudes, 'cause that's ''totally gay!''"
* InsaneTrollLogic: Of course, this would imply that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qCTbFN0EsDM "Stephen the Lesbian"]] runs off of ''any'' kind of logic.
* {{Jerkass}}: The eponymous [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KemOvmLB2Sc&feature=plcp&context=C4b25005VDvjVQa1PpcFPzJWk6qnHNlQBRKt3GHJlJmZpcFFQqt0I= Starbarians]]. They agree to kill a dangerous beast on the planet of Mammoria in exchange for a month of alcohol, orgies, and plentiful food, because they'll probably die on the mission. They get their reward up front, and when the month is over, they renege on their promise after exiting the capital.
* LargeHam
* LiteralGenie: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HXsvVQe34k8 Hal the Misinterpretive Porn Star]] seeks to invoke this in every scene he does.
* MagicFloppyDisk: Apparently, all of ''Skyrim'' can fit on a single floppy.
* ManOfAThousandVoices
* {{Mondegreen}}: [[{{Lordi}} BYE OLD]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MPHaahKa1Nk MECHANIC MAN!]].
* MoodWhiplash: Harry's cartoon's are known for going from lighthearted fun to HighOctaneNightmareFuel in the blink of an eye.
* NightmareFace: ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g3GzMPzGa1Y But the pain will be more than real...]]''
* OneOfUs: His knowledge of Internet pop culture is unassailable, given his subtle incorporations of {{Sonichu}} in his more recent animations and his fanart of the elusive [[http://harry-partridge.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d2k8ymv Amber Lamps]] from the Epic Beard Man viral video
** Plus, in his {{Skyrim}} video he shows some characters from TheLegendOfZelda except in their [[TheLegendOfZeldaCDIGames CDI counterparts]], which can only mean he's either played them too or also entertains the occasional YoutubePoop
** And the backward, satanic sounding message at the end of "Twitter Twatter" is ''apparently'' "I choose you, Bulbasaur!"
* OutOfCharacterMoment: Used deliberaly in "Saturday Morning Watchmen". Knowing the backstory, you'd be aware that Ozymandias beat up the Comedian and threw him out of a high rise building to kill him, yet Adrian inexplicably catches him to save his life in the parody, their preceding altercation instantly forgotten.
* ParentalIncest: Presumably [[DidNotDoTheResearch unintended in-universe--]] The Comedian in ''[[{{SugarWiki/Watchmen}} Saturday Morning Watchmen]]'' wants a kiss from Silk Spectre, who is his illegitimate daughter in canon.
* ThePowerOfRock: Mordin's plan for defeating the Reapers in the ''MassEffect'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOqHUa2LfNY cartoon debut trailer.]]
* SaveThePrincess: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SOuNeX9kmWw&feature=g-u-u&context=G22d312cFUAAAAAAAGAA Starbarians - Episode 1]] had the two heroes rescuing [[MeaningfulName Princess Bustilda.]] [[spoiler:Only to end up kidnapping her themselves.]]
* SelfDeprecation: Some of his vids, but they usually make things funnier.
** On NicolasCage [[StupidStatementDanceMix Wants Cake]]: "I promise I will never make anything this retarded ever again."
* SomethingCompletelyDifferent: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Rpn1cMdMkg Ace Ryder]], an old student film of his that he rediscovered by accident and redubbed for his channel.
* StrongFamilyResemblance: Animated Harry's parents, as seen in the Skyrim video.
* StupidStatementDanceMix: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5PJddmfesaA Nicolas Cage wants that chocolate cake]].
* SubvertedKidsShow: Seems to be a favorite trope of his. Examples include ''Bo Starr'', a ''WesternAnimation/{{He-Man and the Masters of the Universe}}'' parody, and ''Chuck's New Tux'', a bit of wacky SaturdayMorningCartoon hi-jinks that ends in {{Gorn}}.
** Inverted with ''[[{{SugarWiki/Watchmen}} Saturday Morning Watchmen]]'' and ''TheElderScrolls Adventures with the [[TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Dovahkids]]''.
*** And now ''Mass Effect''.
* TakeThat: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3Pjgs9I9Ns This video]] takes a major jab at "animation" programs that use canned animations and text to speech functions to create "animations" easily.
** He's also amongst many of those mocking a certain [[{{Sonichu}} Christian Weston Chandler]], having the manchild appear in several of his animations.
* TalkToTheFist: The Starbarians are challenged to a game of chance by the Snake-Wizard, Shiat. They promptly beat him senseless.
* UnfortunateName: A lesbian bar called "The Big Dyke". There's even a giant billboard right next to the building attempting to explain it:
-->'''Billboard''': "Dyke", as in a natural or artificial embankment which regulates water levels. -The Management
* TheUnreveal: The Skyrim video stops short at the girlfriend's face. Considering that she, along with [[StrongFamilyResemblance the parents]], [[FanDisservice share his skin tone...]]
* WhatHappenedToTheMouse: Numerous viewers of ''The Justin Bieber Show'' want to know: ''who did Justin see at the mall?!''
* XMeetsY: {{Watchmen}} [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YDDHHrt6l4w meets]] {{Saturday Morning Cartoon}}s, plus several delicious helpings of {{Irony}}.
