The cartoon characters of Happy Tree Friends were enlisted to make this instructional video to help instruct YouTube users the ins and outs of Copyright law and what is appropriate to post on YouTube. While playing the clip during NA 269, Adam sighed, “How sad is that!” He was in danger of going into a funk again because the video trivialized copyright’s fair use provisions. Adam also pointed out that he thought the cartoon seemed to copy Rocky and Bullwinkle with it’s Lumpy character. He next declared Google’s Serge Brin “evil” for releasing this video! Dvorak declared the video pathetic.
At No Agenda Entertainment, we’ve been fans of Happy Tree Friends and their usually comic and violent escapades for years and hate having to see them used for this manner!
