Happy Tree Friends: Run and Bun is an arcade game based on the web series Happy Tree Friends. It was developed by TreSensa, Inc., which is also responsible for the development of another HTF-based app called Strandead. This game was first revealed in a "sneak peek" blog in March 29, 2013, then was later shown in a teaser trailer on May 6, 2013, all are shown in Mondo's official site. The game was first released in its beta phase, which only included two characters and two levels.

Run and Bun is so far the only Happy Tree Friends-related app that is available on Google Play.


The objective of the game is to keep a chosen character from hitting hazards while collecting buns and power-ups. Buns are the main items in this game, as they function as the in-game currency to unlock more characters and buy more power-ups. There are six funny characters and six silly levels for you to choose. However, you first start with only one character and one level available, and you have to collect enough buns to unlock the rest. Someone will offer different gameplay and difficulty.

The controls for this game only involve tapping your finger (iOS, Android) or clicking your left mouse button (online version) on the game screen.



A purple lamb wearing a small purple bow on her head and a wool sweater as her clothing. She's the starter character in the game who uses a small airplane. Tapping/clicking the game area will make her airplane float up, while releasing your finger/mouse button will make her airplane go down. Her favorite level is the city.

Disco BearEdit

An orange bear who is dressed like a typical disco dancer, hence his name. He uses rollerskates, and his controls are different from those who use flying vehicles. Tapping/clicking the game area will make him jump. You can also make him jump in mid-air with the same jumping height, as long as you're careful. His favorite level is the park.

Disco Bear can be unlocked by paying 200 buns.


A yellow rabbit with pink cheeks and wears pink bunny slippers. He uses a skateboard. Different from Disco Bear, Cuddles has a different jumping heights. His starting jump will make him jump as high as half the screen, but his mid-air jumps are rather short. His favorite level is the cave.

Cuddles can be unlocked by paying 500 buns.


An orange beaver wearing a hard hat and a toolbelt and has his hands amputated and covered in bandages. Handy uses a jackhammer, which can be tricky to control due to his starting jump being somewhat short, but his mid-air jumps are high. His favorite level is the construction site.

Handy can be unlocked by paying 1,000 buns.


A purple deer who, hence his name, is dressed like a pantomime. He rides a unicycle, and he can be pretty similar to Cuddles in terms of jumping. Mime's favorite level is the amusement park.

Mime can be unlocked by paying 2,000 buns.


A green bear wearing an army uniform. He uses a jetpack, making him the other character with a flying vehicle after Lammy. Flippy is noticably quicker to take off, but isn't as floaty as Lammy. Flippy's favorite level is the jungle.

Flippy can be unlocked by paying 3,000 buns.



The starter level in the game. The level, obviously, takes place at a park, where the chosen character goes through a small road. Hazards include bouncing logs, bushes, tree branches, stray dogs, woodchippers, and many others. This is Disco Bear's favorite level.

Power-ups can be either picked up in a level or used anytime (if bought, which then function as equipped items).

  • Bonus buns - Bonus buns looks like a bigger version of a regular bun. If picked up or used, all buns in the level will become bigger for a short time.
