Recap / HTF As You Wish

Go To

Lifty and Shifty race all over the town to find the magical wish-granting genie, Lumpy. Meanwhile the tree friends make all sorts of terribly worded wishes.

  • Ambiguous Ending: Lumpy is granted a wish and unlike the others, he takes his time to think about it. However, we never find out what it is.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: The main gimmick of the episode (and also the ending moral).
  • Butt-Monkey: Sniffles continues his trend of always receiving the most Cruel and Unusual Death out of everyone.
  • Jackass Genie: Subverted. Lumpy at no point does he ever purposefully make bad wishes, it's just that everyone else worded their wishes poorly.
  • Karmic Death: Lifty and Shifty getting impaled by lamps after causing all the chaos and destruction.
  • Pet the Dog: When it seems like Lifty and Shifty are about to fall to their deaths, Lumpy creates a magic hot air balloon at no expense for them.

  • Smart Ball: Nutty (and Sniffles, but he’s already the resident Smart Guy so it doesn’t count) is the only person to have his wish not backfire on him, as he wished clearly and concisely to Lumpy.
  • There Is Another: Turns out that Lumpy isn't the only Genie, he finds Genie Giggles.
  • They Killed Kenny Again: Lifty, Shifty, Petunia, Sniffles, Cub, Pop, Mime, Nutty, and Disco Bear die.
  • Throw the Dog a Bone: Lumpy and Giggles survive.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Lifty and Shifty do some pretty despicable acts to get their wish such as: cutting Sniffles’ arms off and running over an already heavily injured Cub.
  • Too Dumb to Live: Nutty wishes for a giant lollipop and unlike everyone else, his wish doesn’t backfire — however Nutty stupidly shoves the whole lollipop in his mouth, choking himself to death.

How well does it match the trope?
