"The bigger they are, the harder they fall"

Airdate: May 18, 2003

"Out on a Limb" is the sixteenth episode of the second (internet) season of Happy Tree Friends.

Lumpy is cutting down a huge tree only to end up getting one of his legs stuck between one of its branches and the ground when he is running away from the toppling tree. Obviously, the tree is too heavy, so Lumpy tries to cut the branch himself, but the axe's head ends up flying off when he prepares to swing. Lumpy begins rummaging his pocket for something else to use. He has a button, a spoon, and a paperclip. He decides to use the spoon — not on the branch, but his stuck leg. The agonizing process goes on for hours. By the time night falls, the cut area of the leg has been reduced to a bone. The bone is too hard to cut, so Lumpy tries to force his spoon through with the help of a nearby rock. After another cringe-inducing effort, the bone is finally cut, and Lumpy is relieved. Unfortunately, he soon finds out that he stupidly cut his free leg instead of the stuck one. With the spoon bent and unusable, he has no choice but to go through the whole pain all over again with a paperclip.
