February 23rd, 2011 Edit
Hello. I will be writing on this blog because I am researching a show called Happy Appy. One of the main reasons why I'm researching this show is because I've been fascinated with missing TV shows, episodes, and movies. Like most people who research missing episodes, I'm hell-bent on finding London After Midnight, the 108 missing Doctor Who episodes and Him, the 1974 film where a man has a sexual obsession with Jesus. Another reason I want to research this show is because I had an experience with it around 2000.
It was around 8 in the morning. My younger brother, who was six at the time, was watching a local station in its child TV show block. After a dubbed over Blue's Clues, it started to air a show called Счастливые Яблоко, or Happy Apple. I can barely remember the episode, but it was about this apple who was trying to help a kid named Nathaniel. It felt sort of low-budget, but since my brother liked the episode, I didn't mind him watching it. The only thing that made me suspicious was this evil smile that the apple did in the middle of the episode. Despite that I should be helping the search for any video of said missing movies, I'm going to research this one series for now.
Sometime during early 1999, Nickelodeon launched Noggin, a program block that showed TV shows for children. A show on Noggin named Happy Appy, which sounds like a song a babysitter would sing, was first shown within a few weeks of the channel's existence.
The plot of Happy Appy is about a giant clay apple with arms, baby blue eyes, giant dark green lips, and a big green leaf being held up by a rusty bent stick. He would go around in a van helping children when they got hurt. As the show's episodes progressed, it just got weirder. To show one example, Happy Appy kept doing this deranged smile when he was near children. It reminded me too much of that smile that he did in the episode I watched. Later in the show's run, they changed Happy's stick to a non-rusty stick, which was still bent.
The show was one of the shorter shows on the block, at a normal length of 10 minutes long. The episodes were normally played in duets, making each full episode 20 minutes long minus commercials. A couple of months after Happy Appy aired its first episode, Nickelodeon cancelled the show, and it was never shown again on Noggin or Nick Jr. Even the much more appropriate episodes weren't shown for whatever reason. However, some parents did record the show, but they were VHS copies.
Of those said VHS copies, only a few survived through the years. The tapes were destroyed either due to neglect or disgust, or were simply misplaced and lost for a long time. I was one of the lucky ones that had a copy of the show. Yesterday, when I did some winter cleaning, I found an old DVD with sharpie written on it. It read ‘HA Episodes’, so I did some research on what the HA meant. My first choice was the forum about missing episodes/films that I normally go to.
When I entered the missing episode section of the forum, the first thread I saw was one named "HA? What's this?" It was posted by a woman who had, like me, found a DVD with the initials "HA" on it. As I read the thread more, I found out that the initials on the disc stood for Happy Appy. This instantly reminded me of the weird low-budget show that I watched with my brother in 2000. In the replies, the users claimed that there are no known DVD copies around. I'm not sure how the disc got there, though. I certainly don't remember owning a disc that looked like it!
After viewing the thread, I went ahead and put it into the disk drive, hoping that it would work. Thankfully, the disc did work, and it instantly cut to the intros of the episode, no menus or anything. Happy Appy's intro song had the same tune as Mary Had a Little Lamb. It went something like this.
Happy Appy Appy App,
Happy App, Happy App
Happy Appy Appy App,
He helps kids all day!
Happy Appy Appy App,
Happy App, Happy App
Happy Appy Appy App,
He helps kids all day!
Happy Appy Appy App,
Happy App, Happy App
Happy Appy Appy App,
He helps kids all day!
I just want to point out that if you ever sing the song, the word "kids" is held, meaning that there is no pause between the words. Anyways, that's enough with discussing the intro of the show. Here's what the episodes are about. Episode 1 and 2 were called “Happy's Vacation” and “Hurt Happy”, respectively.
Happy's Vacation was exactly what you’d expect. Happy Appy goes on a vacation to the beach, helps injured kids, and even talks down a bully into not hurting a child. Hurt Happy was about Happy's stick getting broken, and the kids teamed up to help Happy Appy by giving him bandages and fruit. Nothing seemed out-of-place when I first saw it, but when I saw it a second time, the episodes looked a little suspicious. When Happy was driving his van to the beach in Happy's Vacation, some frames were skipped. At first, I just ignored it, saying that it could be a scratched DVD. But when I checked the disc, it had no scratches on it whatsoever. Also, during the fruit scene in Hurt Happy, the kids gave him an apple for whatever reason. It could have been a mistake by the producers, though.
Finally, I noticed some things in Hurt Happy that looked out-of-place. In Happy's van, there was what looked like the border of the HOPE poster, but it was so out of frame that it could have been something else. Also, in Happy’s Vacation, the radio plays what sounds like a country cover of "Hot and Cold", which was made in 2008 and very out-of-place for a kid's show. I thought those were just coincidental. Well, I was wrong. Episodes 3 and 4 were stranger. The intros of these two episodes were cut out, but I found out that Episode 4's name was "Nate Needs Help". This struck out to me, because this was the very same episode I saw with my brother, but in English!
Episodes 3 and 4 were missing a few scenes, and, overall, more disturbing than Episodes 1 and 2. On Episode 3, about 5:10 in is when Happy Appy does his first evil smile for 25 seconds. One moment that could send chills down anyone's spine was the Booboo scene in Nate Needs Help. Happy aids Nate, who has a bruise on his knee. He looks to the camera, giving off the same evil smile that I remember from 2000, and says "What does Nate need for this booboo?” For 30 seconds, he stared at the camera, motionless, with his dark blue soulless eyes locking on to anyone watching. Finally, he broke the silence with "That's right, a bandage!" Why he needed that long to speak, I will never know.
Also, the out of place objects were getting more noticeable. There was a news broadcast about a 9.0 earthquake that recently struck Japan. Happy responded "Oh no! If you want to help the Japanese, call this number!" and a 1-800 number was listed.
February 24th, 2011Edit
I watched Episode 5, which had a few differences from the first four episodes. First off, it had Happy on his rustless stick. Secondly, this episode got a lot more violent. The episode began with Happy on the playground, but he wasn't playing with the kids, or helping them. He was just staring at them, with that unsettling smile I hate so much. A group of kids are seen playing with jump ropes, when Happy walks over to them.
He calmly tells them something, but I could barely hear what he said. From what I heard, I could only make out "Hello... Happy... I... how... me... please?" I could see where this was going, as the kids walk with Happy into the bushes of the playground. Loud violent screams are heard for almost a minute and a half, until Happy is seen dragging three bloody bodies to his van. For the rest of the episode, he does that damn death smile! Why did they use that look so much? Episode 6 showed Happy doing his death smile at the beginning, but it was hardly viewable. Around a third of the way in, it went static it for the rest of the show.
I couldn't believe it.
I moved on to Episode 7 and 8. This time, the episodes were so violent and so badly made that they couldn't have been aired on Noggin at all. Episode 7 had Happy Appy take a kid into his van. Flesh cutting could be heard, and so could blood splatters on the windows and horrified screams, which turned into gurgles. Happy emerged, doing a death smile from 09:21 to the end of the show, or 10:00. Like Episode 7, Episode 8 was gory and violent. But this episode, called "The Towers", was so coincidental and violent that I couldn't believe Noggin would even allow it, unless it was some sort of hijacking.It starts out with Happy Appy walking around the playground when two kids ask him what the cycle of life is so that they could complete their homework. He proceeds to tell the kids about the cycle of life in frogs and plants. The kids said "Thanks, Happy! Can you play with us for a bit?" Happy agrees, and they start playing on the playground. When this happens, smoke starts to creep behind Happy and the children. It gets to a point where they start coughing because of how dense the smoke is, so they turn around to see what was making the smoke. Happy gasps at the sight in front of them.
Two towers were on fire and were burning up. A few people can be seen falling out of windows to escape the fire. There was a lot of screaming, falling debris, and a crashed airplane in one of the towers. Only the tail of the plane was visible, sticking out like a sore thumb and nearing the point of collapse. I could hear a faint whining noise at this point, and I think that it was one of the plane's engines which was probably still on. Seven seconds later, the tail of the plane finally broke apart, with the largest piece of the tail hitting and killing someone. During this scene, fire trucks could be heard trying to douse out the flames, but it only slows the flames down. The wailing of ambulances could also be heard, taking away the bodies of the people who jumped from the towers. It showed a weird guy on fire falling out of one of the towers, screaming.We saw Happy and the kids again, but this time, they stood still in fear. The smoke kept getting thicker and thicker, slowly obscuring the trees and equipment of the playground. The debris from the towers fell around the kids and Happy, and a person ran up to them and told them to run away from the towers before running off. When the older kid worriedly said "Happy Appy, why are the towers on fire?” it cut to a higher-up floor that was near where the plane crashed, which revealed a kid that was crushed under a huge piece of concrete, crying for help. Some other kids tried to help him by lifting the piece of concrete off him. He was screaming so loud, it was almost heartbreaking. There were bodies and blood everywhere, and the pain and fear on the trapped kid’s face was so realistic, I cringed. After the shot with the kid trapped under the concrete, we see the younger kid say “Happy Appy, why are people running and falling from the towers?” Happy Appy turns to the camera, death smile on face, and very coldly said three words. Those three words will haunt me as long as I research this show.
"That's natural, children."
He took the two kids away from the towers, leaving the kid stuck under concrete screaming for help. When the credits rolled, the audio of the scene kept playing, and at the end, before it cut out, something collapsed, making a very loud noise that could scare anyone watching.
I jumped out of my seat. Was Happy a death bringer in the form of an apple? Or was he a master predictor? If that episode somehow predicted 9/11, I have to watch Episodes 9 and 10 to see if there was anything else predicted. I might not see any predictions, though, and to be honest, I hope not. Oh, and you want to know what happens when someone calls the tsunami aid phone number? Tomorrow, I’m going to go and call it.
February 25th, 2011Edit
Hey, I called the 1-900 hotline mentioned on Episode 3. It was a pre-recording, which I will transcribe for you.
"Hello! My name is Happy Appy! I am every kid's most helpful and favorite Apple! If you want to make a donation, press 1. If you want to know about the earthquake, press 2."
When I pressed two, the hotline said this.
"An earthquake and tsunami has recently hit Japan, and we need all the help we can get! If you can make a donation of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20, 50, or 100 dollars, you will be a big help! Anyone who donates gets a Happy Appy badge!"
So, I went ahead and donated a dollar to the donation for the fun of it by using an outdated bank account that I never used. It responded.
"Thank you for helping with the aid for the Tsunami! Look in your mailbox in a week from now, because you'll get your Happy Appy badge!"
I’m wondering what earthquake Happy predicted. Between 1999 and the current day, there were no 9.0 earthquakes in Japan. Since the 2003 Hokkaido Earthquake was pretty close to when the episode was released, as well as the magnitude mentioned in the radio broadcast, I guess he was predicting about that.
February 27th, 2011Edit
Episode 9 was corrupt, to say the least. It started up, but it had no audio, and the first part was so badly compressed that it was hardly viewable. The next part was just plain static for the rest of the video.
“Great, 2 missing episodes”, I thought.
Episode 10, called "Happy's Trick", was actually watchable. It started with some weird, off-beat carnival music, and Happy Appy doing his death smile. As the episode went on, scars started to appear on Happy's clay body. It began with Happy in his van, driving on the road, which looped on and on. Eventually, he reached the playground, where many children were at play. Happy jumped out, and looked like he was ready to kill all of them. He said "Hey kids, who wants to see Happy do a magic trick?" The kids cheered, and ran into his van. Happy closed the door and drove off. After a few minutes, he came back, smiling like he just killed them all. The inside of the van was covered in blood as well.
I couldn't take it anymore. For some reason, Happy was making me feel nauseous. But I kept going. The rest of the show before the credits was him reading the news. It looked absolutely normal, until the camera zoomed on the newspaper, which was reporting on future events that didn't happen for a long time. Just a few examples were the Libyan riots, the death of Michael Jackson, and the SS Columbia disaster. Meanwhile, there were random breaks, which showed a "behind the scenes" look at him murdering a child in his van. At the credits, Happy was holding a knife, covered with blood. The camera shot down, where there was a table. A hand with cut marks was visible. After this, it cut to a blank screen, with white text.
"If you get these DVDs, I copied Happy over to them. I wanted to preserve this so that they weren't lost forever. Now you might wonder, how did Nick allow all 10 episodes (or 7)? I don't know. They just did, that's what. If you want to know more, see me.
Wait, who was KC? Was that my friend, Kevin Seward Costo? Well, when I first met him, he did say that he worked with Nick until the end of the millennium, so he probably helped with Happy Appy. I went to his house to talk to him about the show.
When I entered, Kevin wasn't home. Instead, his wife was sitting in his bedroom, crying. I asked her what happened to Kevin. She replied with something that shocked me. "I don't know what happened, but someone or something kidnapped him last night. I'm not sure where my husband went, but whoever kidnapped him left this piece of paper. Take it." I got a folded up piece of paper. I unfolded it, and it was a picture of Happy Appy during the 9/11 scene, with the exception that he looked badly scarred like in Episode 10. Before I left, I asked her how those horrifying episodes got on Noggin. She replied with "T-this man h-had drugged the producers! He was g-going to-"
That was enough. I couldn't bear to take it anymore, so I left the house, and drove off. When I got out, I started to walk back to my house. I heard a gunshot and screams from a woman, probably Kevin's wife. I instantly ran to my house, because I know whoever killed Kevin was trying to kill me. Before I opened the door, I saw one last glimpse behind me. It was Kevin's mutilated arm in a bush, and an unknown figure standing behind it.
March 3rd, 2011Edit
Hey, I wanted to know if anyone has any videos of a Happy Appy episode. If you do, send me the link to one. Why am I asking this, even though I have a disc of ten episodes? Well, I found the disc in pieces on my desk, and no, I didn’t save the videos to my laptop, even though I should have. The way it was broken was almost like a claw had slashed the disc twice. Also, there was a note near it, saying "No more evidence now, huh?" I wonder who was angry enough to destroy my disc.
March 4th, 2011Edit
I finally got my Happy Appy badge today. It came in a box that, interestingly enough, had a timestamp from 1999. More than likely, they still had some left over from when the show was quite popular. When I opened it, I got a letter from Happy Appy and the badge. The badge was made of plastic, had a silver-bronze color, and showed Happy Appy doing a regular smile. The back of the badge had "Happy Appy Helper Badge" imprinted in stereotypical Army font. The letter had the following written on it:
To my friend,
You have helped us help the Japanese!
Of course, let me introduce myself.
Unarguably, you have heard of me on Noggin!
Can't understand what I’m saying? Well, I'll give you the answer! Happy Appy Appy App!
Appy App, Appy App! Happy Appy Appy App, he helps kids all day!
Now, where do I begin with this gift?
Today, I have given you a nice badge, right from the old playground! How did I get these, you ask?
Running across the playground, I tripped on a rock. I fell down, but I noticed the ground was uneven!
Undoubtely, something was buried, so I dug the ground and I found a crate filled with these badges!
Now, it's time to be off! Watch Noggin at 8:30 AM CST to see my new adventures!
I checked the back for anything interesting. What I found instead were these 2 lines of gibberish.
I don't even know what they are!
March 5th, 2011Edit
Today, I got an email from a man who claimed to be a user on WikiLeaks. He had heard about my research on Happy Appy, so he tried to find any documents related to the show. He did find one, which told employees at Nickelodeon to never air certain TV shows or movies. After browsing through a massive description of Cry Baby Lane and other shows, I found this block of text in the middle of the document.
"One show, originally named 'Happy Appy' was cancelled due to blood and gore. The original show depicted a personified apple named "Happy Appy" that taught kids how to handle certain injuries and even had an episode based on teamwork, called “Hurt Happy”. On their last and only 8th episode, it was only an hour when Noggin began to remove all traces of the show. Kids who watched the show's final episode were reported to obtain symptoms of nausea and sleep deprivation. A 2003 report says the episode seemed to depict explicit imagery of the September 11th terrorist attacks, even though the episode was aired in 1999."
I'm getting much more suspicious about this show.
June 1st, 2011Edit
First off, yes, I know that Happy Appy might have predicted that recent earthquake and tsunami. So stop sending me emails about it!
Anyways, I'm back. The reason why I was gone so long was because when they had found Kevin Costo's body, they thought I was the murderer. Presumably, the police took me to court. On May 29th, I was found innocent, due to the lack of evidence that happened when his body disappeared. I bet that shadow man took his body away. However, I was looking up “Happy Appy” on YouTube today when I found a video that said “Kevin Costo Interview – Audio Only”, so I watched it. Here's a transcript.
Interviewer: Are you Kevin Costo?
Interviewer: So, are you the one who worked on Happy Appy's clay model?
Interviewer: How did you get the job for Happy Appy?
KC: I had just graduated from an art college in late 1998. I heard about Nickelodeon Studios, who were making cartoons. So I sent a resume, and a few weeks later, I got the job, and I was happy. Well, until the shit hit the fan.
Interviewer: What happened on the day you made the Happy Appy model?
KC: Okay, so basically, we had to design a cute-looking puppet for the show. We started with a rusty stick that was lying around on the floor of the studio, made an apple out of clay, and stuck it on the stick. We added baby-blue eyes, as well as pupils so he would look cuter and less frightening for children, huge green lips, and clay arms. Finally, we added a stem and a leaf. We thought it was perfect for the show.
Interviewer: Who voiced Happy Appy?
KC: I don't remember his name, but I do remember who he was from. It was a show called Fright House Screamers, where four teenagers would spend the night at haunted places.
Interviewer: What happened to Fright House Screamers?
KC: When they were filming the fourth episode, one of the teenagers was found dead in the place they were doing. Besides, the show sucked ass.
Interviewer: Was the voice of Happy the teenager who got killed?
KC: I'm pretty sure not.
Interviewer: Back to Happy Appy, why aren't there any surviving copies of Happy Appy?
KC: That's a good point. See, Nickelodeon owns the tapes somewhere, but they're not going to release them for a long, long time. There have been bootlegs, of course, but none show the episodes after episode 10, which is weird.
Interviewer: How many episodes of Happy Appy were there going to be?
KC: 2 full 26 episode seasons. They only showed 8 or 10 of the first season before Happy was canceled. However, my friend Jim says there's actually two seasons, but he was very drunk when he said that. Besides, I don't trust him at all.
Interviewer: Do you know any of the other crew who worked on Happy Appy?
KC: I only know Jim.
June 6th, 2011Edit
Dear god! I've had nightmares of Happy ever since I saw those last episodes. The dreams range from Happy's death smile to Happy brutally murdering a kid. Not only that, but I’m become quite paranoid of apples. If I see one in my house, I eat it as quick as I can, or if it’s in a store, I watch it very closely. Also, about the mysterious figure, I've seen him more, whether he's sitting on the side of a mountain, or standing in a forest. The figure never seems to leave me. Also, I've seen more of him to tell you more about his physical features.
First off, he can’t be made of shadow, because he has some sort of face with a mouth. However, the thing is, the mouth seems to be locked on one expression, which happens to be Happy's death smile. I’m gonna sound weird for this, but I wonder if he's Happy. No, he can’t be! There’s a fine difference between this tall shadow man and Happy Appy, a child-sized apple! Oh well. Here's more about the stalker's body. He looks like he's slightly taller than me (for reference, I’m around 1.87 meters) and seems to be about mid-weight for his height.
If he keeps appearing, I'm going to have to board up my house. I'm not sure what his problem is, but if he doesn't stop, I am going to call the cops.
June 11th, 2011Edit
GODDAMNIT! Okay, okay, how the hell do I put this in a short, non-awkward way? Right now, I'm at the library, which could be the only place in town that has a computer that I can use for free. It's been five days since I last encountered the figure, and he did something awful. He decided to burn my house down! Yeah, he burnt it to a little crisp. And that’s not even the worst part! The worst part is that no one seems to notice that my house was burned down. It was like the fire never happened, or worse, like the house never existed at all. I am definitely going to kill that fucker for what he did!
But, I will admit that I’m at least safer in the library. Right now, I see Harold Kleiner walking in the bushes. I don’t know why, but I don’t really mind, since he is the first friend I made over here in the United States. Hold on, hold on. Wait a minute. Why the hell is there blood on his face? Oh god, if it’s the figure again, I am getting out of here! I'm going to check it out. Wish me luck.
June 28th, 2011Edit
Today, I finally got to buy a new house. Unlike my old house, which was made of wood, the new house I got is made out of brick. On the down side, it’s a little smaller and less fancy than my original house, but oh well, at least he can’t burn it down as easily.
On Happy Appy, however, one of my friends, Jim Forester, actually remembered Happy Appy, and is most likely the one mentioned in Kevin’s interview. He said that there were more episodes I didn’t have on the DVD. It turns out that the most violent episodes were actually at the end of the season. The entire first season was supposed to have 25 episodes, plus a TV movie. No one mentioned it, because Jim and Nickelodeon had the only known high-quality tapes until I found the DVD. It’s also worth mentioning that the series slowly got more violent as the series progressed. Jim sent me a disc with fragments of Happy Appy episodes. Here are the contents of the disc.
The first clip starts out with a close up of a school bell ringing. It cuts to Happy Appy, who is standing next to a kid sitting at a desk. The kid is trying to answer a math problem, but gives up and says "I don't know how to do my homework!” The teacher said "Class is dismissed". The kid is ashamed that he didn’t know how to do his homework, but Happy says "That's all right! I’ll sing you the math song and you’ll understand!" After the kid gasps, Happy sings a song about math. It was distorted in both audio and video, but I could thankfully make out the lyrics.
I'm gonna show you how to do your homework!
7 plus 4 is 11, and 9 minus 2 is 7,
Math's not a chore, because 15 minus 11 equal 4!
6 plus 2 is eight, and you're doing great,
Now, here's the last 3! You're on a spree!
66 minus 55 is 11, and -5 plus 12 is 7,
Two minus one, and now your homework is done!
After that, the kid says "Wow! Thanks, Happy Appy!" I find it funny that the kids were doing math that was more suitable for older elementary students.
The next fragment was one of the violent episodes. Even though the clips looked like they were separate and from different episodes, they actually seemed to be in order. It started with three kids crying so loud, it was almost painful to see. Happy Appy and two other kids were trying to calm the kids down. The reason the kids were crying was because their families were gone. The two kids eventually comforted the three other kids, and the five left. But Happy had this weird, perverted, and greedy expression. He said "Come with me." The five kids followed Happy into a building. Two minutes later, he left the building, dragging several money bags with him. The kids were screaming for help again.
It didn’t end there. There was one fragment of a somewhat violent episode. Happy was putting a bandage on a kid's arm. Oddly enough, he was wearing a long coat in this episode, and in the far corner of his pocket, a needle with green fluids can be seen. Happy gave the kid a shot with the needle, which knocked the kid out. He dragged the kid into his van, and a chainsaw was heard. The DVD stopped after that.
Oh, you want to know more about that encounter with the figure? First, it turns out he was at the library, so I got out of there. However, about Kleiner, though, what I thought was Harold was actually someone else that looked like him. Secondly, I gave him a nickname. It's Forenzik, which is better than calling him "the figure". I didn’t come up with the name, though. I found a scrap of paper on my desk that said “Forenzik". Obviously, since I have to call the figure something, I shall call him Forenzik from now on. When I saw him 17 days ago, he seemed to have fingers with claws.
I don't mean like he had retractable claws in his fingers. His fingers looked like they were very sharp. I also got a good look at how he ran. He seems to be hunchbacked, which means he would be taller when he would be standing up straight. I say about 6'9, although you could speculate that, because I don't have a picture of him yet.
July 14th, 2011Edit
Today, Jim Forester called me, telling me that Trestan Yae, the man who voiced Happy Appy, and a star on Fright House Screamers, had been killed today. His body had 3 long and deep cut marks on his chest, with one of them slashing open his heart. Even though the police marked it as a murder by a bladed weapon, I thought that Forenzik would have clawed him. However, in response, Jim said that they would need to be extremely sharp claws, because whatever the weapon was managed to put a deep cut on one of his ribs. Also, I need to research Fright House Screamers after I'm done with Happy Appy. It sounds quite interesting.
July 15th, 2011Edit
Today, Jim Forester gave me a DVD with three new episodes. According to Jim, the first one is the episode with the green fluids needle, the second being the full version of Happy Goes to School, and the last one might be the second part of the Happy Appy TV movie. I would be able to describe the episodes if it wasn't for the extensive cleaning the disc needs!
July 17th, 2011Edit
After all of this time, I cleaned the disc enough to be watchable! The only problem is that it still freezes when a video is played. Here's what happens.
The first episode started out with the scene with the green fluids needle. After Happy kills the kid, he drives to a crashed plane, where the scene with the money bags happened. It cut to the playground, where Happy was playing with some kids. It went along like normal, until his skin peeled off, revealing a rotten apple core. It was like an orange peeler was being used on him. The skin landed on a boy's head, covering his face like a blanket. The weird part about this scene was that the kids had no reaction to Happy’s skin being peeled, almost like it never even happened. After a minute of seeing the boy with Happy's skin on his head, the episode ends.
The second episode was, as Jim said, the full version of Happy Goes to School. It begins with the math scene and song happens, but in a vastly improved quality. After that, Happy goes into a science class, where a kid is messing around with a Bunsen burner. Eventually, the kid gets his finger burned by accident. Happy informs “Never play with a Bunsen burner without adult supervision! If you don't, you might get hurt like Eddie here!” After his short monologue, Happy puts an ice pack on Eddie's burn, and he thanks Happy.
A few seconds after Happy puts the ice pack over the kid's burn, he hears an argument coming from the hallway. It cuts to a bully mocking a young kid, telling him that his art project is the dumbest thing ever. Because of this, the younger kid starts crying. After some more mocking, the bully runs off laughing. Right as he leaves, Happy comes over and tells the kid to never give up at what he likes doing. The kid instantly cheers up and runs into a classroom, presumably to tell a teacher about the bully.
Finally, I saw the first part of the Happy Appy movie. It started out with Happy Appy driving his van on the road leading to the playground. It shows a kid playing with rocks on the side of the road. By accident, he throws a large rock onto the road, which lands directly in the path of Happy's van. Happy tries to swerve out of the way, but the van goes off the road and crashes into a grassy ditch. For this scene, footage of a real car crash was used for whatever reason. After this scene, the van starts to catch on fire, and some kids, including the one who threw the giant rock, run over to the burning wreckage.
The music for this scene isn't the happy-go-lucky music that plays throughout the show, but sound clips of a reversed Revolution 9, with Happy screaming "GET ME OUT!"
After a kid says "There, his hat, his hat!" it cuts to Happy's bloody stem, which had a mouth with bloody teeth on it. The stem proceeded to scream, which was just one of the screams that Mike Schank did in American Movie. Another kid says "His body, his body!" Happy's body was badly burnt and cut up, with blood coming out from the larger, deeper cuts. His left eyeball was dangling out of the socket, while all of his upper teeth were either chipped or broken. Where Happy's left arm and stump were, there was pure white bone, with blood slowly leaking from the exposed wounds.
Happy tried to crawl out of the burning wreck with his right arm, but it was only a minute until he collapsed and died, whilst screaming to weird sci-fi noises. The next scene just showed the road, lacking any children whatsoever, with the remains of Happy and the van in plain sight. It cut to a funeral, where kids were crying over Happy's dead body. While one kid said "Why, Happy, why?" another tried to 'wake up' Happy by shaking his corpse. After the funeral scene, it showed Happy's body, with blood on his broken teeth. It cut to a 10 years later scene, where a kid was talking to her mother.
The mother replied to the girl, but her speech was reversed. After reversing it, the speech turned out to be saying "Don't worry, my daughter. Happy Appy is coming to take you away, ha-haaa!" The father comes in and talks about how bad Happy was, but in a sarcastic tone. After the mother asks why he randomly brought Happy up, the father brings out a knife and stabs the mother in the head. The girl screams, runs to the mother's side, and starts crying. The father's skin peels off, like the scene with Happy and the orange peeler, revealing Happy with his injuries from the car crash. Happy proceeds to kill the girl.
The final shot before the credits was Happy Appy smiling over the bodies of the mother and kid, as well as the skin of the father. Instead of the theme song playing over the credits, dark carnival music played, with clips of Revolution 9 and Napoleon XIV's "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!” A narrator said "His stomach was in two today", "There were two, and there is none now", "He's there, he's getting next to his sister with all he knows", and finally "He ceased to work in the underworld" Guess what the narrator was talking over? He was talking over Happy Appy, with a bloodied scalpel in one hand, a Xacto in the other.
It slowly panned down to the disguise Happy was under, like the magic trick episode, and stopped at the hand of the skin, which had cut marks on it. The episode ended.

It's been a week since I watched Part 2 of the Happy Appy TV Movie. It turns out that someone claimed to have the first part, so I asked him to email it to me. It turns out he was right. Here’s what happens in the first half.
It starts with the carnival theme from the credits of Part 1, but with distorted voices. The intro was spotted with giant flashes. After when the original intro would play, it went straight to Happy on a medical bed dying from an unknown disease, with children at this side. Happy said in a loud voice "THEY'RE COMING TO TAKE ME AWAY!", and it cut to one of the younger children. He was trying to cry over Happy's death, but the single tear that came from the child was done in Claymation.
It played a solemn piano tune after another kid with a high-pitched voice said "They're coming to take ME away!" It showed Happy Appy coughing up blood, and a few seconds later, his bed wheeled itself into a surgery room. What followed was an hour of stop-motion surgery. It was so horrifying, but yet so compelling. How did they make a decent surgery scene with puppets? After that, Happy was seen on a wheelchair, and the children said "Are you better?" Happy said "Yes, my nice friends!" and gave them a big hug. After that, it faded to a title that said "3 months later" and started to fade in on the second part of the TV movie, but it was cut.
July 26th, 2011Edit
Today, I went to a yard sale, and I saw a VHS called HA Bonus Features. I bought it for the very cheap price of a cent. After that, I put the VHS in the player and hoped that it would work. Unfortunately, it didn’t work at all, because the video was basically static, and it made 5 swooshes and a weird noise. I tried to decode the weird noise, and after half an hour of playing with various audio tools, the weird noise turned out to be a kid talking to the listener.
Don't trust Happy Appy.
He will murder you, he's a killer.
Never trust him.
July 28th, 2011Edit
Jim told me about the fire that ravaged through the studio that made Happy Appy. When I heard about this, I had to go to visit the ruins of the studio. After going on a plane ride that took a couple of hours, I bought a rental car and drove to the studios, if I find anything that could help me investigate the mystery of Happy Appy. It was completely abandoned, but even stranger was that there was no one trying to demolish it. So I snuck in, because I thought that could help my search for Happy Appy.
When I went inside, I saw two rooms that weren't burnt or crushed by debris. They were a sound set and a storage room. The storage room had a lock on it, so I ignored it for the sound set. It was massive! I mean, I’m talking the size of a football field. Despite the sound set being massive, the only things there were a few remains of some green screen stages, and a burnt studio camera. What was interesting was that some of the remains of the cloth had what looked like blood stains on it. Most of the lights were on, which was strange, considering that the studio got damaged by a fire except for the back. Since the lights near the back were off, I wondered what would be back there. I heard movement, and saw Forenzik again with his red eyes. I got the hell out of there and slammed the remnants of the doors to the set.
After that, I went over to look at the storage room. The lock, although made of steel, was rusted and brittle, so I broke it off using a hammer I found in a desk. After opening it, I noticed it was some sort of vault. It had some tape sets that had labels on them, so I took them. However, most of the stuff just burned, except for a safe, which I took. Unfortunately, a specific someone made the building unstable, presumably by destroying most of the beams that held up the place. I ran out as fast as I could, just before the entire building collapsed, killing whatever moved back there. I hope that it was Forenzik.
August 1st, 2011Edit
Today, I broke the lock of the safe. After opening the safe, I jumped back a bit. Inside was Happy's puppet doing the death smile. I got creeped out, but kept him anyway. When I looked at the tapes, they were just the kid-friendly Happy Appy in a higher quality. I also apologize for delaying the opening, but I had personal things to deal with.
August 2nd, 2011Edit
On closer examination, though, the Happy Appy puppet had a few anomalies. First off, the right hand was quite obviously reattached, which could suggest that someone accidentally ripped Happy's hand while trying to get him to hold something. One of his eyes was a darker blue than the baby blue his eyes normally was, and his leaf was broken off halfway. Finally, there was what looked like a name on the back of Happy's puppet, but it was too faded to read clearly.
It also turns out that the tapes were, like the Happy Appy puppet, different from what I had thought. For Happy's Vacation and Hurt Happy, the scenes with missing frames had those frames back. However, what was more interesting was that the HOPE poster that was in Happy's van was missing from those tapes. I guess that these tapes were actually in workprint quality, and not the finished product. If that's so, it doesn't explain why the tape that held Happy Goes to School had the beginning of The Towers on it!
I can only guess that The Towers was originally going to be a normal episode in production, but when the show got cancelled, some asshole 'finished' it.
August 4th, 2011EditToday, I saw Forenzik again. This time, however, I finally took a picture of him! Even though it's incredibly blurry, at least I have a photo of what he looks like. The odd thing is that unlike regular times, where Forenzik has Happy’s death smile on his mask, he had a frown on his mask. I wondered why he wore a frowning mask this time, until I smashed and burned the Happy Appy puppet, because I think it’s powering Forenzik. I could be wrong, though, which is probably true. I kept the tapes, though, as they are good enough to keep.
August 15th, 2011Edit
I apologize for not updating this blog lately. I really haven't had much to say, but now I am getting creeped out. I thought I had destroyed the Happy Appy puppet three days ago, but when I went into the kitchen to make a snack, I saw it lying on the counter, without any damage done to it.
Also, I have had lots of nightmares about Happy or Forenzik. The most vivid one occurred to me tonight, which was based on The Towers. I saw a completed Freedom Tower being hit, almost ironically, by a plane. Onlookers were either running away, crying, or praying to God. I remember that I was one of the onlookers, frozen stiff on the Vesey Street sidewalk. My body couldn't move an inch. Right next to me was a ripe apple tree, which oddly hadn't been knocked over by debris. On the pavement, there was an apple that had presumably broken off of the tree.
I picked it up, and almost got to take a bite out of it. What stopped me was Forenzik, watching me from a nearby bush. As I bit the apple, it suddenly grew a mouth and began screaming loudly. Horrified, I threw the apple to the pavement, which injured it more. As soon as the apple hit the ground, Forenzik disappeared from the bush. As the scream from the apple grew louder, the fires on the Freedom Tower kept flaming on and on until the thing collapsed, sending a cloud of debris towards the onlookers on Vesey. Right before I was hit, I jumped out of bed, screaming in horror.
I don't know why, but it seems like Forenzik and Happy are the only thing that I can really think about anymore. Thanks to them, I think I'm going insane.
First off, I can’t see fruits without thinking about Happy Appy in any way. Thankfully, though, I don’t think about Happy when I see a vegetable, unless I find an episode involving a vegetable clay puppet. Secondly, I fear tall and skinny (and especially both) people a lot more than I used to, mainly because of Forenzik and how he’s very tall and skinny. And finally, when I see a playground, I imagine Happy Appy in that one dark, plant-filled, abandoned corner of the playground, doing a death smile and ready to murder every child. I really regret researching this show.
I've learned more about Fright House Screamers, but it's not as related to Happy as I thought it would be.
August 16th, 2011Edit
Today, I went to look for Happy Appy on the TV. Even though it sounds idiotic to look for a show on the channel that it’s banned from, it’s worth a shot! I woke myself up when Nick Jr. started, and watch the shows for Happy Appy. It all went well, playing Dora the Explorer, and Yo Gabba Gabba, when a bumper aired. A woman's voice said "And now, we have something special to show you! Please welcome, for the first time in a decade, Happy Appy!" I was excited, for that I would most likely see a new episode. And I did, but this was one of the earlier ones.
The theme song played, and the name of the episode is revealed to be “Monkey Bar Mishap”. It started with Happy Appy in his van driving around, and he sees this kid, sitting and crying at a playground. He drives and parks his van. When he goes to where the kid is, Happy finds out that the kid had fallen off some monkey bars and his pinky finger was broken. Happy Appy said "What does Jake need to heal with, kids?" He stared at the screen for 45 seconds, enough time to read a couple of pages of a book to him, preferably the Bible.
Like the Nate episode, his soulless baby blue eyes watched over anyone in the room like Big Brother. It was almost like he could climb out of your TV, grab you, and murder you slowly and painfully with a rusty knife, but he couldn’t. He said "That's right!" and Jake hugged Happy Appy. Happy puts a bandage on Jake's finger, and drove away in his van. After the credits ended, part one of the episode ended. So, after that, I said to myself "There has to be another episode. That was only enough to be a half of an episode!" I was right. Another episode premiered, “Never Run with Knives”.
In the episode, a kid was running with a knife facing up. The knife was clearly a rubber prop, because the blade was flopping around a lot. The kid got ‘cut’, and held his hand over the wound, crying. Almost instantly, Happy parked his van, gave a normal smile, and said "Hey kids, this kid shouldn't have carried the knife facing up while running!" However, he did heal him by putting a bandage over the wound. The kid hugged Happy, and he said "Remember kids, never run with knifes facing up, or scissors for that matter. Always walk with knives and scissors facing down!" Happy took the kid to his van, and the credits played.
I was very excited to see new episodes of Happy Appy when I realized something. Why did those two episodes air? Did a new employee mistakenly air the episodes without knowing that Happy Appy was banned? Or did someone else deliberately air them? If someone did air them deliberately, why? Was it Retro Day at Nick Jr, and they allowed a showing of Happy Appy just for once? Or did someone know about my research blog, and to help, they aired an episode?
Hey, I've got two things to tell you. First, I will try to make at least 1 post every day, all the way until when I quit researching Happy Appy. Second, I'm keeping track of the episodes. Here are my guesses for the episode list. Anything with parentheses describes the episode better.
- Happy's Vacation
- Hurt Happy
- Monkey Bar Mishap
- Happy Goes to School (The one with the math song)
- ???, title missing
- Nate Needs Help!
- Never Run with Knives
- Happy Fixes Kids
- ??? (Happy Fixes Kids, Part 2?)
- Happy Fixes Kids, Part 3
- The Towers
- Happy the Doctor (The one with the green fluid needle, the crashed plane, and Happy's skin peeling off)
- Happy's Trick
- The Happy Appy Movie, Parts 1 and 2
I know there are only 15 episodes mentioned here, but I haven't discovered the other 9 yet when I published this post.
August 18th, 2011Edit
I was on YouTube when I came across a Happy Appy video. It was named "The Happy Dance", and was used to promote Happy Appy on Noggin. In it, it showed Happy, moving around like he was breakdancing. The music was slightly distorted, but it had someone making and failing at beat box noises. Accompanying it was some lyrics on how to do the Happy Dance.
Do the Happy Dance! Jump to the left, jump to the left, jump to the left, jump to the left!
Now jump to the right, Jump to the right, jump to the right, jump to the right!
Now get down, and scoot to your left, Scoot to your left, scoot to your left, scoot to your left!
Now scoot to your right, scoot to your right, scoot to your right, scoot to your right!
Do the Happy Dance!
After that, it said "Watch Happy Appy every Monday at 8 A.M.!" and it ended. I know it isn't a new episode, but it's a nice, cute thing I saw.
August 19th, 2011Edit
I recently won a bid on eBay related to Happy Appy. However, the item was very odd. It was a Video Games bid saying "HAPPY APPY 1990s RARE PROTOTYPE POINT AND CLICK GAME". Since it was about Happy Appy, I had to buy it. After a huge bidding war with another user, which went to $119.66, I got the game. It came in a CD, which had a rushed label and said "Happy Appy and the Quest for the Golden Apple PROTOTYPE" I had to run the program on Virtual PC, because it was only compatible with Windows 95 or 98.After installing, an icon appeared on the desktop that was Happy Appy's regular face, no death smiles or anything. When I clicked it, a program popped up. It took me to a menu, which was not finished. It had no fancy graphics or anything, just the title and some buttons, as well as a copyright, in Comic Sans MS font on a solid baby blue background. I expected that, seeing it never passed as a prototype. At the middle were the buttons NEW GAME, CONTINUE GAME, OPTIONS, and EXIT. Options didn't work, so I just left it, but I guessed what was in it. It didn’t matter, since I just wanted to play the damn thing. All I had to do was press play.
As soon as you start, you learn the story of the Golden Apple, an apple that can heal anyone, and how it is hidden in “Apple Labyrinth” under the playground. The cutscene had no pictures, only the following text:
"Once upon a time, there was an apple coated with gold leaf, known as the Golden Apple. According to legend, the Golden Apple was because it could heal any injury or disease. It was created by the Banana tribe, who used it to try to unify every Fruit tribe together. One day, however, the fierc Apple tribe destroyed the Banana tribe, and found the Golden Apple. Keeping it for themselves, the Apple tribe abused the Golden Apple to make their warriors the strongest around.
With the Golden Apple, the Apple tribe began to conquer every tribe that they had known of. However, a new tribe was created by the survivors of the conquered ones. Using the Banana's knowledge, they made another Golden Apple, which was stronger than the one the Apples had. The Apple tribe started to collapse as the super tribe conquered its former lands. Eventually, when the Apple tribe was surrounded, the last great Apple leader used the Apples' great underground labyrinth to hide the Golden Apple forever.
Right before an attack happened on the tribe, the entrance was sealed to the labyrinth. When the Apple tribe fell, the Bananas tried to find the Golden Apple to destroy it forever. They couldn't, though, and were forced to destroy their Golden Apple.
Thousands of years went by, and the world as we know it came into being. The labyrinth was forgotten and left to rot...
However, one day in 1999, an Apple descendant known as Happy Appy was playing in a playground when he found the labyrinth again."
It eventually went to the game. Instantly, I noticed four things. The first two things I noticed were a place indicator and a glitched up score. The third was that the graphics were horrible, and the fourth was that you didn't use the mouse to move the character! It's a combo of the arrow keys for moving in eight directions and the mouse for actions.
To access Apple Labyrinth, you needed to get a shovel from a kid, but the kid wants a chocolate bar. So, you need to get a chocolate bar from a vendor, but to do this, you had to find a dollar. So it was just standard point-and-click stuff. After you got a shovel, Happy would dig under the playground and find the entrance to Apple Labyrinth. However, this is when the game started to go weird. Sometimes, Happy would end up being two sprites, and they would go off at different times. Also, some sprites would glitch up.
I passed those off as glitches. After all, it was a video game prototype, so what else could you expect? I got to a large, rusty steel door. I tried every command. "Use door" did nothing, "Eat door" didn't do anything but Happy Appy said "Yuck", which I found funny, and "Knock on door" said "Wait for the time to fly." I saw a clock on the wall near the door. There was a command that said "Lift clock", so I proceeded to lift the clock, and nothing happened. Because of this, I looked to see if there was a room select, as it was an early alpha, and indeed there was! I had to press the Insert and F12 keys at the same time on the main menu to access it. There were a lot more levels, so I selected the level after the door. It was a long hall with old statues of apples helping children. At the end was a cellar door. It needed a key, so I wondered where I could find a key.
A message popped up, saying "Look for the key-shaped pebble in the playground!” So, I had to go back up the stairs, and look around for the key-shaped pebble. After finding it, I went down to the hall, went through the door using the level select, and used the key on the cellar door. After that, I went down to a new room, which was a floor that was a slide puzzle. I helped unscramble it. After taking a minute to unscramble, it turned out to be a picture of Happy Appy helping a kid. The platform started collapsing, so Happy left the room to another. This time, it was a seemingly endless set of stairs.
This is when the glitches become more out of control. Sometimes, the game hangs, but no more than several seconds. Also, some of the wall sprites were replaced with a sprite earlier from the game, like Happy's van, or a kid. Still, I kept thinking they were prototype glitches. Eventually, I got bored of the endless stairs, so I quit. However, I wondered if the game broke, and the endless stairs were a glitch. So I tested my theory out. I walked down the stairs for a long time, about an hour and a half, until a hole appeared, to which Happy fell into a room. There, he found a map. It showed all the rooms you were in, as well as the next room(s). After that, Happy found a door, to which he found a kid, crying because he hit his head on a wall. I thought that was a glitch, so I healed him using an ice pack. He gave me a hug and ran off, probably to the playground. I also got some glitched points.
I wondered why he was down here, other than to get points. I left the room, and I was greeted by another huge hall. This is when the game started to look a little decent. There were small chunks of the wall missing, which had a pulsating purple glow behind it. I came into a teleporter. It would allow me to teleport from the playground to any place that had a teleporter. I closed the menu, for I had not found another teleporter other than the playground. The screen rumbled, and the hall started to collapse. Unlike normal times, where Happy got out of the room, he stood still, and didn't move. A random beam hit him, but he got out okay. I entered a circular room. I noticed parts of the roof were falling off, collapsing. Happy went back into the room, and the rumbling stopped. I went back in, and the room led to another dimension.
There was a road in a pulsating purple sky that led to the same labyrinth, but with some differences. First, the rooms were mirrored, and looked brand new. When I mean brand new, I mean like it was built yesterday. No walls were cracked, no doors were rotting, and no metal was rusted. The only problem was that a lot more rooms were unfinished than the old one. Not only that, but the endless stairs weren't endless in the modern Apple Labyrinth. I wondered what would happen if I went back up to the playground. I took the same route, and walked up the stairs. I saw something interesting. It was woodland, completely abandoned, with the same landscape as the playground. I thought to myself if this was the Apple Labyrinth from the past. I had some evidence to tell why, so I kept quiet. I went back into the past Apple Labyrinth.
After that, I wanted to actually look for the Golden Apple. By using the map, I found out that the 10th basement of the past Apple Labyrinth was where the Golden Apple was. The game hanged for a minute, before returning to normal. I took the stairs to the 10th basement, when all of a sudden, it absolutely glitched up. Sprites were replaced, the collision was of another room, the sound broke, etc. It didn't help that a big rock pile blocked my way to the Golden Apple. There, I had an idea. Could I get to the room where the Golden Apple was, but in the modern Apple Labyrinth? I left to go back to the modern Apple Labyrinth. Somehow, I got to the 10th floor by glitching through the endless stairs. I entered the room. It was old and dusty, but what intrigued me were the skeletons on the floor. And they weren't cartoon skeletons. They were actually sort of medically accurate.
The zoom-in on the apple made it worse. It was rotten beyond belief, shriveled up to an almost-sickening shape. It was almost like someone took a photo of a rotten apple and gave it a golden tint in Photoshop. I noticed the room was being disconnected from the lab, and was going to the past Apple Labyrinth. Finally, after crashing through to the other GA room, I got the non-rotten Golden Apple. Happy started shaking uncontrollably. He was foaming at the mouth, and burn marks were forming for some reason on both sides of his face. Finally, he passed out, and he woke up in his van. The Golden Apple was in his hand. He ate the apple, and a golden shine slowly took over his body. He was gasping for air, until he suffocated. Text appeared on the top of him, saying "YOU GOT BAD ENDING." I wondered why it said that, until I noticed the score below it. I didn't get a high enough score! Well, I'll replay it tomorrow.
August 20th, 2011Edit
Today, I opened the game files for any missing sprites and levels. There were over 25 levels that weren't used, including some roads which could have been in the opening, where Happy drove his van to the playground. When looking at the sprites, though, they got progressively gorier. Just for comparison, the first three sprite sheets I found were black, Asian, and female children, which was most likely a way to expand on the types of kids you can help. One of the odd sprites I found was a skull which was hidden on one of the missing levels. According to an unfinished script, it would involve going into the fake Golden Apple room and lifting one of the skulls to find a switch. Another was a sprite set which was Happy Appy turning to the player. This sprite set was incomplete, but the last sprite showed his teeth, which were red for some reason.
But the goriest one of the bunch was a sprite sheet called "failure.png". It was 100 or so sprites, showing a kid on his knees, pulling a knife out, and committing seppuku. After that, he kneels for a while before collapsing. I'm not going to post the sprite anywhere, because of how realistic it is, even for a MS-Painted game. I wondered if there were any sound effects. Yes, I was that sick to know. So, I looked through the sound effects, and found three sounds that were notable.
The first was Happy's voice saying “STAND STILL! MIRANDA'S DEATH WAS MUCH QUICKER!” in a threatening way. I wonder where this can be used. In fact, I want to know who this “Miranda” is. Until I find out, all I’ll know is that she was killed by Happy. The second was sound effects that would have belonged to the "failure" sheet, which includes the unsheathing of a sword, and the sound of a blade cutting through flesh. The last was a 3-minute droning noise, with a reversed discussion at the end. I reversed it, and I could hear 2 voices.
"Are you sure he's in the temple?"
"Yes! Fill up the entrance and let Happy Appy die."
I will be playing the game tomorrow, but with a few of the sprites, voices, and maybe even a level correctly placed, to make the game a little more playable.
August 23rd, 2011Edit
As I was looking over some posts today, I noticed a draft in the folder. Normally, I wouldn't have drafts in there, unless I had to finish a post on another day, so this stuck out as odd to me. I opened it, and I found out that Forenzik had somehow gotten into my blog! I'm guessing he used a key logger, but anything's possible. Here are the contents.
Hello there, my good friends! Are you feeling well today? Good, because Gerasim is not here today. Instead, you'll be getting a post from his 'favorite' friend, Forenzik!
So life's pretty good from where I'm standing. I've killed a lot of people now. This year alone, I've killed Kevin Costo and Trestan Yae! Amazing, isn't it? Well, just you wait! Once I'm done with Jim Forester, I'll kill Gerasim, and it won't be pretty! What will I choose to kill him? Will it be the good old knife to the head? Or maybe I’ll pick a slow painful torture? I might not mentally scar him, but it IS in the question! Oh, the possibilities are endless!
But now there’s a big question I will answer. What will I do with Gerasim’s body? Will I
And it ends there. Why did he leave off mid-sentence? Did his internet break down? Was he noticing that I was starting to wake up? Or maybe he got booted off somehow? I don't really know. All I know is that Forenzik tried to post on my blog, and I'm NOT happy.
August 24th, 2011Edit
Today, the same person who uploaded the Kevin Costo interview on YouTube added a new interview. This time, it was Jim Forester being interviewed. He worked on some of the scripts for Happy Appy, including "Nate Needs Help!”
Interviewer: So, were you one of the scriptwriters for Happy Appy?
JF: Unfortunately, yes.
Interviewer: Do you know what happened to Happy Appy?
JF: Well, we actually managed to pull off a third of the first season just fine, without any complaints whatsoever. We were all ready to begin the second third when we were canceled.
Interviewer: Why was the show canceled?
JF: An accident happened.
Interviewer: Wait, wait, an accident happened? What kind of accident could cause the show's cancellation?
JF: During a break we did to get the employees some resting time, we made a joke episode for fun. The episode in question had two smoldering towers, which were on fire. You know, looking at it now, it reminds me way too much of 9/11. The episode was aired because someone managed to sneak a tape and broadcast it on Noggin. And, poof, the show was cancelled. Good riddance!
Interviewer: Do you know who broadcasted it?
JF: Uh, no. The only person I think that would broadcast it is...agh, I forgot! It's been so long, you know.
Interviewer: I can understand, Jim. Anyways, there's one last question. Who was the director of the show?
JF: I don't know who the director is as well! But I can tell you one thing, he's most likely dead.
August 27th, 2011Edit
Today, I found the torrent of another episode of Happy Appy, called Mean Miranda.
It was about boys no older or younger than 6-8 being bullied by a teenage girl named Miranda. Happy gives the kids bandages and advice to help them. He kept getting progressively angrier when the episode goes on, starting from being slightly irritated to getting extremely pissed off. At the end, Happy Appy coldly says "Bully one more kid and you will get a surprise." Miranda kicks a boy in the leg, and Happy Appy gets in his van and drives it at her. Right before the van hits her, the episode cuts into the credits, with promos for other TV shows. The promo was for 2 new episodes each for Franklin and Blue's Clues. At least now, I know who the Miranda in Golden Apple is.
So, here's the new list.
- Happy's Vacation
- Hurt Happy
- Monkey Bar Mishap
- Happy Goes to School
- ???, title missing
- Nate Needs Help!
- Never Run with Knives
- Happy Fixes Kids
- Happy Fixes Kids, Part 2
- Happy Fixes Kids, Part 3
- The Towers
- Happy the Doctor
- Mean Miranda
- Happy's Trick
- The Happy Appy Movie, Parts 1 and 2

Remember when I got those tapes from the now-demolished studios? Well, I bought a small projector so that I could play the tapes to find out more about them. And, like what I saw when I closely inspected the tapes, there were more changes than I thought they had. Here's a list of what I could find in them.
- Happy's Vacation has stock beach music playing in the background of the beach scenes, while my former copy did not. I guess my old copies were the workprint? Also, Happy sounds slightly different.
- Hurt Happy has the apple in the healing scene replaced with a tomato. I think this proves my theory that the apple thing was a mistake done by the producers.
- Happy Goes to School has an entire removed scene with a song in it! Taking place between the math and science scenes, it involves Happy going into a Social Studies class and finding a kid struggling with his homework about the American Revolution. Happy tells the kid to watch what the teacher is going to put on, which is the segment of Schoolhouse Rock about the American Revolution.
- The Booboo scene in Nate Needs Help is a lot shorter, and overall, less weird.
September 1st, 2011Edit
Wow, another month. Expect many posts to be published over this Friday, weekend, and Monday.
Alright, so I managed to complete about a quarter of the Happy Appy game. However, since I’m pretty tired (I stayed up for 15 hours working on the game!), I can only give a quick detail of the game for now. The plot is the same. Happy hears about the Golden Apple and does random puzzle shit to get it. It's pretty much the same game, except for a few major differences. First, there's a lot more rooms with more kids, whom you can save for points, but you probably already know that. Happy can get new powers along the way to get past obstacles, like Water Happy, who can survive underwater, Fast Happy, who can jump over large pits, and Strong Happy, who can throw rocks that block your way. The visuals are improved. Unlike the prototype, which had some rather blank rooms, like Happy's van and the past Labyrinth, many things are now complete, although I did have to use my somewhat lacking artistic skills. Also, that glitch was fixed in the ‘endless’ staircase.
Now, this is where the inappropriate stuff happens. I already talked about the bad ending, and how Happy dies when eating the Golden Apple. Well, the fixed ending for it is worse. After Happy dies from eating the Golden Apple, a kid walks in, sees Happy's dead body, cries, and, like the failure sprite sheet, commits seppuku, ending the game. The neutral ending is if you get over 10,000 points, which is rather easy to get. Happy doesn't die from eating the Apple, but the Apple works at random, healing some kids at some times, but other times it doesn't. The last one is possibly the happiest ending. You must get 50,000 or more points and saved every kid. Happy eats the apple, and the Apple works fully, healing any kid that gets injured.
But it gets even worse. Along the plot of the game, there are two bullies who follow Happy Appy, which are based off the bullies in Happy Goes to School and Happy’s Vacation, and that's where the MP3 of the people talking about Happy in the cave fits into the game. Depending on these requirements, their fates vary. All of them need you to have the best ending.
- If you do it in a fast time, Happy just ignores the bullies, and they eventually leave the playground.
- If you do it in a medium time, Happy will tell the bullies to mind their own business rudely, and they get upset and leave.
- If you do it in over 24 hours, Happy will get mad, and drive the van into them, while screaming “STAND STILL! MIRANDA'S DEATH WAS MUCH QUICKER!”
The last ending where Happy drives the van into the bullies always happens in the neutral ending, but not in the bad ending for obvious reasons. Also, there's a sort-of boss in the middle of the game. It's basically a giant stone apple statue that comes to life and attacks Happy. One hit, and Happy gets killed. Since he can respawn an infinite amount of times, it's nothing to worry about. The only way to kill him and get through is to drop a heavy banana-shaped weight on him.
And guess who I saw today? It was Forenzik, as usual. Unlike most times, I got a good look at a part of his face. Well, to put it shortly, he might be a human. Might be.
September 2nd, 2011Edit
This post isn't about Happy Appy and the Golden Apple, but it's about a new discovery I found while searching torrents for “Happy Appy”. It was a torrent of an intact version of the Happy Appy Movie's Bonus Features. Visually, it wasn't good. It was just a simple menu with a white background. There was one bonus feature, “Creating a Happy Appy Episode”.
I downloaded and watched it. It was around 30 minutes long, and, like the title says, showed the making of a new episode which wasn't released, called “Happy Meets the Rhubears”, where Happy Appy is in a crossover with Aphex Twin. Here's what happens, according to the clips shown.
- Happy is in the playground, when he sees a Rhubear running around. Happy asks who he is. The Rhubear does not respond.
- Richard drives in his long limo from Windowlicker.
- Happy and a Rhubear heal a kid who accidently hit his head on the swings.
According to a worker, "This episode will appear in Season 2!" Of course, Season 2 never aired.
September 3rd, 2011 Edit
Okay, there are two things I want to talk about on this blog post. First off, I've heard a rumor that there's an actual episode of Season 2 intact, but it's a very incomplete fan restoration, around 15% complete. I'm just going to say this now, but why would this show have fans? I can understand liking the more appropriate episodes, but... Anyways, the rumor states that it was the very first episode of Season 2, called “Camp Aaah”. In it, it starts with the intro, as always, but with some differences. First off, Happy didn't dance in the intro, but starred the new main characters, sort of like the CSI intro.
As for the main characters, they are Happy himself, a man in a ski mask called Napoleon, and a little boy named Danny. I have a weird feeling that Napoleon could actually be Forenzik in a different outfit. After that, it cut to a scene where Happy Appy is in his van, but there are 2 girls in the passenger seats. The girls are only clay apple heads on sticks, with no arms or stems. After driving for a while, the van parks in the camp. Happy gets a wash cloth, and he and the girls sit on it. For a while, they just sit on the cloth, staring at the sky. After a few seconds, another apple appears, looking like a stereotypical beach jock. Happy says “Move it, ladies”, although the quality makes it sound like “Movie it, leddys”.
The second thing is that Happy Appy does not have an IMDb page. The page some people are mistaking it for is actually a TV show called the Happy Apple. I could understand why people would think it would be related to Happy Appy, Happy Apple being the rarely used full title of Happy Appy. When I mean rarely used, I mean RARELY used. It was only used once in a TV Guide preview. But about The Happy Apple, it's from the 1980s. How can you confuse a TV show from the 80s about an insurance company with a Noggin TV show from the 1990s that has imagery of 9/11?
And don’t even get me started on Appaloosa horses.
September 4th, 2011Edit
Earlier today, I received an email about Happy Appy and the Golden Apple. It was from the person on eBay that I bought the game from. He said that he had accidentally screwed up and left out a sound file for the game and sent it to me. It was an MP3 file that was exactly a minute long. I played it, and no sound came out. It was almost 0 bytes in size, so I deleted it thinking that it was just a blank sound file. I was wrong. Turns out I had the sound muted, making me think it was nothing. Remembering that it was still in my Recycle Bin, I looked in my there and luckily figured out that I had not emptied it. I am now trying to decode it.
September 5th, 2011Edit
When I first tried to decode it, I just heard what sounded like static. I tried reversing it, changing the pitch, slowing the speed and adding volume with successful results. At first, it was just the sound of Happy Appy laughing. It wasn’t just a regular laugh, but a scary, hurting, and painful laugh. Happy started screaming and you could hear someone in the background laughing. Again, it sounded like the person that was laughing was killing someone, but was also injured. I think that it was a child struggling against Happy Appy trying to kill him, but that's just a guess.
September 6th, 2011Edit
After 16 pages of a Google search, I found someone who said that they were a survivor of the staff who made Happy Appy. I was excited, so I got their address so I could meet them in person. It took a long time because the directions they gave me required me to go through a lonely dirt road, and I thought that I would get my shoes dirty. Hey, can't be too cautious, can I? Well, anyway, I was at an angle where I could see the person who was standing near his house. I was right about to yell out to them, but I got a closer look and freaked out. It was Forenzik, standing near the house right behind the corner of a building I was supposed to pass.
If I had passed it, Forenzik would have caught me off-guard and stabbed me to death. I don't know why Forenzik had set this up, but he is definitely out to get me. He was still looking at the way that I was supposed to have come through and quickly checking his watch, so he didn't see me yet. He WAS a human. He was wearing this weird mask that looked like a happy baby, and the mouth would often move, giving the impression that he was literally a baby face. His arms were bone skinny and it looked like he needed to put on 20 pounds to be considered barely underweight. He started getting more and more nervous and thinking that I wasn't going to show up. What was also of note was that near the house, there was a van that was very similar to the one that Happy rode. I ran off and went back to my house to tell you about this near-death experience, because it will probably happen more and more often.
September 7th, 2011Edit
Since I was freaked out by Forenzik, and it is nearing 9/11, I re-watched the "The Towers" episode again. When I played it, I heard that faint whining noise in the background of the ‘famous’ scene, and I instantly recognized it as a much quieter version of the decoded sound I was talking about two days ago. I don't know why that sound was in there, but it was. I still can't imagine out what could match with that audio clip. Also, because of that encounter, I carry a switchblade with me at ALL times when I go out of my house, just to be on the safe side.
September 8th, 2011Edit
I finally figured out what the sound clip is! While I was getting my groceries, it came to me that the voice that wasn't Happy's sounded a lot like Forenzik. Quickly, I came up with the idea that the sound clip was Forenzik fighting with Happy Appy. I don't know why he would fight Happy, an inanimate clay puppet, unless he had some sort of mental condition, like schizophrenia. While I was on my way home, I saw a police car with its lights on and sirens blaring, so I followed it. When the police car stopped, I saw the cops leave the car quickly and run after a thin figure, which had dropped a gun and something red.
I left the police to chase him, and looked at the red thing. It was an apple with a face on it, meaning it was none other than the Happy Appy puppet. I could have sworn that I saw Happy’s mouth moving, but I was so freaked out that I wasn’t sure if the mouth was moving or not. I went back home and looked for the Happy Appy puppet, and it was gone! Forenzik must have broken into my house while I was out, and stolen the Happy Appy puppet. Since I knew it was Forenzik, I left the police to chase after him, and picked up the red thing.
It was none other than the Happy Appy puppet, with some dirt on it. I could have sworn that I saw Happy's mouth moving, but I was so freaked out that I wasn't sure if Happy's mouth was moving or not. Suddenly, it came to me that if this figurine was the one I owned, Forenzik must have broken into my house! Before the police came back, I got into my car and went back home. Thankfully, it was unscathed, but one of the front windows was opened. Once I got in, I shut the window and looked for the Happy Appy puppet, which I had put in the living room. However, it was nowhere to be found!
September 9th, 2011Edit
I'm not sure how, but maybe the audio of Forenzik and Happy was planned to be in a future episode of Happy Appy, and got mixed up while they were putting the sound and music in. To be honest, I really have no clue why Forenzik was fighting with Happy Appy. Was he around while Happy Appy was being made, and put himself in one of the episodes because he was in the staff? Or, did he get so much infamy during one of the episodes that the producers decided that he was perfect material to mock? I still can't put this together.
There's some good news about Forenzik, though. To quote from today's newspaper;
“A crazed maniac was arrested last night, after a robbery at a firearms store, a home break-in, use of firearms without a permit, linkage to various murders, and evading arrest."
Some days, I ask myself why I chose to get involved in Happy Appy.
September 10th, 2011Edit
Well, tomorrow is going to be the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Oh joy. In all seriousness, I have lots of thoughts in my head today. Will I be visited by Forenzik again, or will I be murdered in my sleep? Will my house burn down again, or will I have a normal day for once? I am not going to make a post on September 11th, but on September 12th.
Oh, and here's another revision of the list, with Season 2's two unreleased episodes, and the duets properly listed.
- Happy's Vacation/Hurt Happy
- Monkey Bar Mishap/Happy Goes to School
- ???/Nate Needs Help
- Never Run with Knives/Happy Fixes Kids
- Happy Fixes Kids, Part 2/Happy Fixes Kids, Part 3
- The Towers
- Happy the Doctor
- ???/Mean Miranda
- Happy's Trick/??? (I think there's a second half)
- The Happy Appy Movie, Part 1/The Happy Appy Movie, Part 2
- Happy Meets the Rhubears/Camp Aaah (possibly vice-versa?)
September 11th, 2011EditI know I'm not supposed to make a post on September 11th, but I really had to get this post out. Last night, a certain someone went on my computer today. Luckily, the only things that Forenzik did were add three photos, a notepad file and a badly distorted sound clip. The images and notepad file were made today, during 2:20 - 2:30 AM, while the sound clip was made on July 14th, 2011. All the images were most likely made using Paint.Net (Since I do not have a fancy art program like Photoshop, and I removed MS Paint from my computer, I have Paint.Net), had the file name 'image1' to 'image3', and all were badly drawn, but I expected that, since Forenzik has a gas mask on, and he has long skinny fingers not fit to use my mouse.
The first image was Happy Appy smiling on a dark red background, with a knife in one hand, and words that say "THAT'S NATURAL CHILDREN". I found out that this one was actually a gif and not a png. I stared at it, and for one frame, Happy had blood on his teeth and knife.
The second image is the only one that does not show something. It is in fact a portion of the song "They're Coming to Take Me Away, Ha-Haaa!” I seriously want to know what the connection is between Napoleon XIV and Happy Appy/Forenzik. Is it that they're both disturbing to listen to? Or is there something else I don’t understand?The last image is more notable than the rest. It was Forenzik standing behind a black background which has "I'LL FIND YOU" in red. The reason the photo is the most notable is because it shows Forenzik's long pale neck, grey clothes, and his unusual gas mask. It's actually more high-quality than the other photo I took of him, even though the picture's quite bland. However, it doesn't show his filters, which is odd.
The notepad file contained another gibberish string.
Why do I keep seeing these gibberish strings? Are they a secret code of some sort that Forenzik wants me to crack?
Oh yes, about the sound clip. It starts with a bunch of ambience that sounds like it would belong in a factory. There was metal banging, steam blowing, all that stuff. It might be possible that it is just some of the distortion. In the background, I heard person walking, kicking over an empty tin can. After this, I heard a voice that sounded like someone beginning to say "Stop!", before it goes to static for the rest of the clip. My best guess of what this sound clip could be is Forenzik killing someone. But looking at the date the file was made, which was on the 12th of July, could this sound file be related to Trestan Yae? I somewhat doubt it, to be honest.
September 12th, 2011Edit
Today was one of the worst days I have ever had. But at the same time, it was also one of the best. You’ll know why later in this post.
It all started when I was coming home after getting late-night groceries on September 11th when I noticed Forenzik was crossing the road to my house. Knowing that he would try to burn down my house again or steal something, I sped up and had the car ram him at full force. I heard a couple of bones breaking, and I knew I must have injured or possibly killed him. So, I grabbed a flashlight and got out of my car, and to my surprise, I couldn't find Forenzik, although he made a trail of blood which pointed to where he went, so I followed the blood.
The trail led me to the nearby forest a couple of miles out of town. I had doubts about this. Forenzik had run off into the woods, and is probably ready to attack me if I go too deep into it. I put those thoughts aside, because I knew I had one thing to do. I had to kill Forenzik in one way or another, so I got my switchblade from the car and went into the forest. The blood stopped at a dirt trail, and a few meters from it was a sign. The letters were faded, but I shined a light on the sign, and it read “John Wilkinson Summer Camp”.
The John Wilkinson Summer Camp was opened in 1996. The owner of the summer camp was, unsurprisingly, John Wilkinson, a 35 year-old man who had a mild case of schizophrenia. For years, it was a very popular summer camp. Kids kept coming to it, with some coming all the way from Maine and the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, in 2004, John Wilkinson's schizophrenia reached a peak, and around 2 in the night, John got an axe, went into the log cabins, and killed 6 children before disappearing into the woods. The summer camp closed down, and the case remains cold to this day.
I went up the dirt road to the summer camp, which was built in a grove. Over the years, the summer camp deteriorated, letting various moss and fungus grow on the rotting wood of the old cabins. I went into A first (just for reference, the cabin series are A (16-18 year-olds), B (13-15 year-olds), C (10-12 year-olds), and D (7-9 year-olds)). It looked like a regular cabin, minus the fact that blood was on the walls, beds were undone, some of the wood was rotting, and there was an axe stuck on the wall. Obviously, since an axe is a better weapon than a switchblade, I took the axe. I went to B, and axed the door down. It was the same as A, minus the axe.
C was the same. Finally, I axed down D's door. As I walked in, I noticed the sound of a generator running. Knowing that this room was different from the rest, I turned the lights on. I wish I hadn’t, because as soon as the old light flickered on, I was horrified at what I had saw. On the walls near the back of the cabin were the mutilated bodies of Kevin Costo, Trestan Yae, and Miranda, held up by meat hooks. I was completely paralyzed in fear for a minute. My breathing became more rapid, my heartbeat sped up, and I started sweating. Behind me, I heard an all-too-familiar slithering voice with what sounded like an East Coast accent.
“Do ya like my trophies?”
I jumped at the sudden voice and sharply turned around. It was none other than Forenzik, with a dull, rusty butcher knife. He was wearing a black butcher’s robe, heavy winter clothing, and, of course, his 'trademark' gas mask.
“Go on, Gerasim. Go on and take a closer look at mah trophies. Ya know ya wanna, out of ya sick, morbid, but somehow natural curiosity.”
When he said that, I was both horrified and intrigued. Even though I had a paralyzing fear, I walked up slowly to the body of Kevin Costo. His body had three slice marks on his chest, half of the skin on his face was gone, and various nails were rammed into his body in such graphic ways that I can't mention it. His jaw was positioned to make it look like he was laughing at something. I had to stop Forenzik from killing anymore people in this horrible way. There was a half-broken mirror next to Kevin's body. I picked it up with my shaking hand, and saw Forenzik sitting down a chair, preparing to sharpen the rusty knife with a large grinding wheel.
“So!” Forenzik cheerfully said, “Ya found me at last. Congratulations, Gerasim! Ya deserve an award. Do ya wanna know what it is, hm?”
“What the hell did you do with them?” I yelled. Even though it wasn’t what Forenzik was expecting, it seemed like the only thing I could say to him.
“Well, since ya asked, I, Forenzik F. Forenzik, will tell ya what he did”, Forenzik said as he got up to stretch his arms. “But first, I’ll tell ya the reward. It's a knife to the throat!” He laughed, which turned from a somewhat girly giggle to a psychopathic laugh. After catching his breath, he said "To put a long story short, dey were people who had annoyed me, to a certain extent. First off, Kevin Costo deserved his natural fate because he kept calling me slow and retarded. I, personally, was offended by that! So, when ya were still watching those ten episodes, I managed to find and kill him. I watched ya enter the house with that photo of Happy Appy in the bushes.” After that, he sat down again, and kept sharpening that knife.
I could barely say “What about Trestan and Miranda?”
“Ugh, don’t mention Trestan Yae. I hate his damn guts. Basically, he was the voice of Happy Appy. I had wondered why they got a teenager to voice Happy Appy, even though I should have done that. It feels natural. Also, he was ruder than Costo, but not as much as Miranda. So, who told ya about Trestan's death? Was it Jim Forester? Hm, is it?”
I was shocked, but I slowly nodded my head. Forenzik put the now-sharpened knife to one side, and began to sharpen another dull knife. Suddenly, he talked in a rather deadpan voice “Ah, I know he’d tell ya about his death. I mean, ya do report the deaths of the employees of Happy Appy, right?” I slowly nodded my head again. He sighed, and said “Well, I guess that’s okay with me. Tell the world that employees of a once-famous Nickelodeon show are dying!” Forenzik slouched over, and sighed again.
He perked up, and said worriedly “Oh, I got distracted! Finally, there’s Miranda. Well, ya see, Happy Appy didn't kill her with his van in that episode you saw. But, Mean Miranda is one of my favorites, because she was killed off for a while. She was very rude, and kept insulting me, prompting ME TO HIT HER EVERY TIME SHE MADE FUN OF ME, AND, QUITE FRANKLY, SHE DESERVED IT IN THE END!” The sudden tone shift made me jump a little. It didn’t help that he laughed like an absolute maniac.
“Ah, I got distracted again. After the episode, Happy Appy and I killed her, as a natural, beautiful team. Now that I’ve told you their fates, go ahead, get closer to the bodies. Closer! CLOSER!” The tone of Forenzik’s voice at the last ‘closer’ made me jump a bit. Hearing him, a very deadpan serial killer, scream at me like that was shocking. The problem was that I was still paralyzed, so I couldn’t move that great. “Come on, Gerasim. Stop fucking around! You don’t want to end up like they did, right? Just GO AND GET CLOSER TO THE BODIES! NOW, GODDAMNIT!”
And again I jumped. This time, Forenzik jumped out of the chair, and started forcibly pushing me towards Trestan's body. I heard him growling in absolute anger, meaning that Forenzik must be a very impatient man. He was as disfigured as Kevin was. He had the same slice marks, but in the abdomen area. His facial skin was also gone, but was sloppier than Kevin's mutilation. He was also laughing, but it was more forced, like Forenzik dug his hands in his jaw and forced it open. I had one more thing to say to Forenzik before I planned to kill him.
"Um, about that sound file you left on my computer. The one that sounded like it was in a factory. What was that?"
"Oh, it was me killing Trestan. I basically had a recorder on me, because I like to kill people and record their death cries. Don’t ask why, it’s so natural, if you will, to me.” He muttered something that I could barely hear, but it was basically along the lines of “Damn, I need to stop saying natural.” He replied with “Now that you've seen Kevin's and Trestan's bodies, how about ya see Miranda's? It’s the best in my opinion, because she DESERVED HER FATE THE MOST!"
And again, I jumped. This time, however, I moved to her body, just so that I wouldn’t be screamed at by Forenzik again and possibly piss him off so much that he would murder me. Unlike the others, however, she was barely recognizable. Pieces of her flesh and organs had bite marks in them, and her limbs were dismembered. Again, she was laughing, but this time, I couldn’t tell at first. I still had the broken mirror, and noticed Forenzik was slowly holding up the second knife he sharpened in his left hand, to backstab me. Forenzik said “Well, now that you’ve got all of ya questions answered, it’s time for you to go.”
“NO!” I screamed, before taking out the axe and striking his left arm. He laughed in half-agony, half-enjoyment while I chopped it off. After chopping off his arm, I ran out of the house, leaving the axe with him. Outside, I found a can of gasoline. I dumped the gasoline all over the house. When I was finished, Forenzik woke up. Realizing what I was doing, he grabbed the axe I had and a bag full of weapons and ran off. I got a match and burned the cabin down. It feels satisfying to make Forenzik homeless.
September 13th, 2011Edit
I'm going to take a month-long break from Happy Appy. The reason why is because of family issues. I expect to return in mid-October.
See you later.
October 19th, 2011Edit
Hey guys! I'm back! I should let you all know that any rumors regarding my break are all false. I didn't see Forenzik during the break, which made my life a whole lot easier. Also, I'll try to find all episodes of Happy Appy. I promise.
October 21st, 2011Edit
Today, I was going through a flea market, when I realized that I could find a Happy Appy episode in the VHS section. After look through obscure VHS movies, I found a VHS with a rushed label.
“Happy Appy Goes to the Circus”
Since I buy almost anything Happy Appy related, I bought the tape.
After driving home, I got my VHS player and put the tape in. The tape had some pretty bad deterioration since it was recorded. Some parts of the episode taped over with an episode of Blue's Clues, and what was not taped over had very low-quality audio and video. The title is the plot in a nutshell. Happy Appy goes to a traveling circus and helps kids who get hurt. The episode starts out with Happy Appy buying a ticket to see the Banana Brothers' Traveling Circus.
After buying popcorn and a drink, he gets into a seat, and the show begins. Unfortunately, half of the scene is replaced with either the Blue's Clues episode or static, and the show scene was pretty bad anyways. I mean, the show was already low-budget as is, but the show scene was by far the laziest thing on the show’s run. The bulky strings were visible during stunts, the models were very rushed, the camera was unfocused, and someone’s head was visible in a scene.
After the three-minute long scene, it goes to the intermission. Happy Appy throws his trash away when he hears a kid crying. He walks to where he thought the cry came from, and discovers a kid who hit his head on the bleachers. Happy heals him using bandages and an ice pack, and the kid thanks him. Happy Appy realizes that the trapeze act, the Flying Apples, has a missing member. Happy sees this as an opportunity to make him more popular with everyone, especially children. He gets dressed as Aaron Apple (the other four were Abraham, Adam, Andrew, and Auburn), and talks to the rest of the act about how late he was.
They go to the second part of the show, and the first act was, unsurprisingly, the Flying Apples. Less of the scene was replaced with an episode of Blue’s Clues, and it actually was well-made compared to the rest of the circus scenes. It was like they spent almost the entire budget of the circus scenes on the Flying Apples part. After that, it was more badly made circus scenes, although the clown scene made me laugh. It finally reaches the end of the show, where the Banana Brothers congratulate kids for visiting the circus. Later, the Flying Apples meets the Banana Brothers, and the Brothers tell the Flying Apples how well they had done in the trapeze act.
After that, Happy is seen walking out, when he sees a kid get bullied by a bandaged girl. Happy gets closer, and guess who was bullying the kid? Miranda! Miranda tells Happy Appy that she has a knife on her. Unfortunately, the video turns into static, but the audio remains intact. I think the last part being static helped a lot, since I heard Miranda screaming, Happy laughing, and lots of slashing sounds. It went to the credits.
October 23rd, 2011Edit
Today, I am going to try to answer a massive question about Happy Appy. Why DOES Happy Appy murder kids?
Well, to be honest, I might have an answer to the question. You see, after I went to the employee's house where Forenzik was at, I had two ideas. Did Forenzik kill the employee, or is Forenzik THE employee? I think the most likely answer is the latter. Another question arises. Who exactly is Forenzik? Well, I can say a few things about this question. It's not Kevin Costo, Trestan Yae, or possibly Jim Forester. Also, I can't really confirm Forenzik's identity. You might be saying that the decapitated arm has Forenzik's blood in it, and his fingerprints.
Well, it's not that. You see, I didn’t keep the arm. I made the foolish mistake of leaving it at the summer camp. Even if I did keep it, Forenzik keeps coming back, meaning that there could be a lot of people posing as him. So, what did the last paragraph have to do with the question? Well, Forenzik might have edited the episodes to show those horrifying scenes, which makes sense, because if Forenzik is an employee, he would have access to the props and the tapes. Because of this, more questions arise.
- Why did Forenzik go crazy?
- Why are there not a lot of survivors of Happy Appy?
- How did the studio burn down? Did Forenzik do it?
Here are my guesses to the answers to the questions, and they will change if I get more evidence.
- This sounds weird, but maybe he's John Wilkinson. This makes sense, actually. John Wilkinson had schizophrenia, and, as you probably all know, killed children at his summer camp. The only problem is that he was chubby, while Forenzik is very skinny. However, things can change.
- Maybe Forenzik killed them. This seems plausible, because I can say that four people related to Happy Appy died (other than the countless amounts of children).
- I think Forenzik might have burned the studio down, for reasons I don't know about.

Today, Jim Forester, who is surprisingly still alive, told me the names of more people who helped work on Happy Appy, which puts me a bit closer to who Forenzik could be.
First, there's Tristan Drews, the man who created the last designs of the Happy Appy puppet. After hearing about the string of deaths associated with people who worked on Happy Appy, Tristan went into hiding, and now goes under a different identity. He's still alive.
Secondly, there's John Tresti, the man who created the music for Happy Appy. He was a musician who was specialized in keyboards, synthesizers, and producing songs. After releasing his debut album “Hidalgo”, which, to this day, is hard to find, he was called to work on Happy Appy's title theme. Although some parts of the story of how the theme was made are missing, John basically got five kindergarten students and had the kids sing the Happy Appy lyrics. After that, he made the backing synthesizer track, combined the two, and previewed the result to Nickelodeon. Nickelodeon approved the theme song, and John kept his job, due to Hidalgo being a failure to sell. He's also still alive.
Finally, there's John Wilkinson. Yes, I'm not lying. John Wilkinson actually worked on Happy Appy. He wrote three of the episodes for the TV series. I swear, I really think Forenzik isn't John Wilkinson, but because he's schizophrenic, killed people, and worked on Happy Appy does NOT help.

Today, one of my blog followers who worked in a daycare center gave me a tape, which, on a white sticker label with a blue sharpie, said “Happy Appy: Hospital Doctor”. He sent it because the kid had the tape with him for whatever reason, and started crying when he saw the contents. I went home to play the tape. It started with the famous intro, but it had new lyrics that didn't really match the tune.
Happy Appy helps those kids,
Happy App, Happy App,
Happy Appy Appy Appy,
Happy Appy Appy!
It went to a POV shot of Happy Appy running through a hospital for two and a half minutes, with a choir singing “Amazing Grace”. Since I knew what Amazing Grace was about, I was prepared for anything related to death. It cuts to Happy Appy on his metal stick, doing his death smile for a long time. Like the two other times, he watched over any living thing near the TV with his uncanny, soulless baby blue eyes. The death smile made his glare worse, giving an immense feeling of threat to anyone watching.
After the Amazing Grace choir ended, ambient noise starting playing. It kept growing louder and louder, and it very slowly zoomed in on Happy. Finally, after 10 minutes of watching a clay apple staring you down with loud ambiance, he says “Hey kids, let's go find some children to help!” He runs up to some body bags holding bodies, while a nurse is zipping one up. Happy walks up to the nurse and says “Hello, Mrs. Nurse! Can I help those people?” The nurse says “Happy, they're dead. They won't come back.” Right before the credits, Happy Appy turns to the camera with another death smile, and says something that could be more disturbing than the Natural scene and the staring scenes, and made me cringe.
“Remember kids, you will all die one day, and I won't be there to help you.”
October 26th, 2011Edit
Today, I found a torrent of the first part of the true Happy Appy Movie. You see, the one I watched was actually a fake, or maybe a long episode. This one is actually much worse.
The movie started up with a different opening. The song playing was the opening song of “2001: A Space Odyssey”. The logo said “Noggin Presents: The Happy Appy Movie”. The first scene of the movie had Happy putting a bandage on a cut that was on a girl's arm. “Today I'm scared, Lily.” said Happy. Lily asked why, but Happy just said “He is coming, and no one can stop him.” I wondered who exactly the he Happy mentioned was. Was it Forenzik? Seven other kids came running over, and in the background, cops were running over to the playground where Happy and the kids were.
They kept yelling at Happy. Finally, one cop said “Stop in the name of the law! I know you have murdered Miranda, Tuck, and Gina!” Happy threw a random knife at where the cop’s heart would be in response. The cops took out revolvers and pistols and shot Happy to death. He was on the ground, with kids crying over him, bullet holes on his body, and apple juice coming out. The police left, knowing that they finally dealt with Happy.
And the episode just got outright bizarre.
Happy was suddenly revived, and stood up. The kids ran away screaming. Happy took out another knife and started to chase Lily in a POV shot. After 30 seconds, Happy grabbed her and slashed her throat open. The rest of the kids ran away. Happy got in his van and drove after a little boy. As soon as I saw the boy, I recognized him as Danny from the Camp Aaah intro. Given his significance there, could Danny be the one who Happy was talking about earlier? Anyway, one of the girls yelled “Danny, no!”
Danny picked up a lit cigarette that fell from the sheriff's mouth, gets into the van, and burns Happy's face, leaving a black burn on his left cheek. Happy screams and Danny runs off. It cuts to Happy chasing Danny in his van. Danny opens the door again, climbs into the passenger seat, and fights Happy. Happy had his knife, while Danny had a cop's dropped Colt Python. Happy crashed the van into a tree, and Danny went out cold, but didn't die. Happy left scene and picked a sharp stick off the ground. It cuts to Danny, waking up and picking up Happy's dropped knife. After that, it cut to black.
I sent a message to the man who made the torrent if he had Part 2. He said yes, and that it would be done on the 27th. I guess I'll just have to wait.
October 27th, 2011Edit
I just finished watching the Happy Appy movie, and it was weird. However, I did find something that will interest you!
It starts with Danny running to a junkyard. He hid in a car, and it cut to a girl in the playground, playing with a tin can. Happy Appy slowly creeped up to her, the girl screams, and he stabbed the girl with the stick. He runs off to get into his van. After driving for a while, he reaches the junkyard.
Happy gets out of his car, and looks around, yelling for Danny. Danny jumps into the car, Happy swears, and Danny runs him over. He jumps out of the car, and the van pushes Happy into a car crusher, and it crushes Happy and the van. A horrifying crushed car cube comes out, with Happy’s skin, ‘blood’, and organs all over the fragments of the van. A woman comes out of the cockpit, and Danny says “Thank you, June!” She says “Thank you for telling me and dad about Happy's rage.” I couldn't take this anymore. I wanted the movie to end now.
I was wrong. Oh, was I wrong.
Another Happy peaks behind an old car and says “Did you really think that I was going to die like that to a kid? Well, if you thought so, you’re wrong!” The credits start. Because of a video error, I could only make out these names in the credits.
Director – Tristen Yap
Producers - Keith Blue and Joanne Broope
Happy Appy – Trestan Yae
Danny – Ray Bollia
After all of this time, I have found the identity of the director of Happy Appy and/or Forenzik! I'll need to research more about him.
October 29th, 2011Edit
Hello, and welcome to a post describing some more information of Happy Appy and the Golden Apple. Yeah, I know it’s a little late, but I want to talk about the power-ups. You can select them by pressing the power-up button and clicking on the power-up. The first one you get is Water Happy, after you finish the sliding puzzle. Normally, Happy can't touch water or he dies. Like I said, there are no lives in the game, so Happy can die a million times and you won't have a game over. However, with Water Happy, Happy's body is made of water, and he can swim through water. His only weakness, however, is cold temperatures in certain parts of the labyrinth.
There's Fast Happy. Happy is a lot less fat, his leaf is longer, and he wears goggles. His jumps go further than the other jumps Happy’s power-ups can do. If he hits a wall while walking, however, Happy Appy splats on the wall and ‘dies’. Strong Happy makes Happy's arms grow more muscular. Strong Happy can lift heavy items and throw them, and he can break weak walls, revealing hidden children to help. His only weakness is that he's very slow, and can't jump as high as the regular Happy. Finally, there's Super Happy. He gets the bonuses of swimming through water, jumping higher without having to worry about splatting on a wall, and can lift heavy items, throw them, and break weak walls. Unfortunately, this form is accessed very late in the game, so you can't use it to your advantage and break the game.
I'm still wondering about who Tristen Yap is. It's amazing to think that a man who killed a lot of people hasn't been captured yet. I wonder where he is.
October 31st, 2011Edit
Have a safe and happy Halloween, everyone. Knowing Forenzik, I know I probably won't! Anyways, today I got a package in the mail. Taped to it was an envelope, with a letter inside. The letter read like this.
“To Mr. Yakovlev,
I have heard that you are researching on a show called Happy Appy. During a recent investigation of Kevin Costo's house, I found a damaged journal that seems to be related to the show your blog is talking about. I hope it will help you find out more information about this show.
Officer Robert Newport”
I opened the package, and inside was a 70-page notebook. However, most of the pages had been torn out. Here are the entries in chronological order.
“February 9th, 1999
I finally got a job at Nickelodeon yesterday! So far, I have been put on a possible Nickelodeon project that is still in pre-production as I write this entry. I will write more soon.”'
“February 25th, 1999
I've been put out of the project to work on Rugrats. The plot of the planned show, which was called “Attack of the Killer Apples”, was a rip-off of the movie Attack of the Killer Tomatoes. The problem was that almost no one liked the idea, including me.”
“March 1st, 1999
Guess what? I've heard that the apple show is going to see the light of day! The man who's going to help produce for the show, Keith Blue, did some Claymation commercials for Noggin. Since they're some of the most popular commercials on Noggin, the creator asked that he should work on the show."
“March 11th, 1999
I overheard a rumor that we're filming at the old stage where Double Dare was being filmed."
“March 23rd, 1999
I just want to leave this project now.
You see, today, I was eating lunch when I saw some sick fucker dragging in Happy's voice actor, Trestan, who was in his late teens, and had a pretty deep voice. We started filming tests like Happy in his van and practicing lines. The guy who dragged Trestan in shouted action. A weird country song started playing on the radio in the van. I shouted to the guy who shouted action and dragged Trestan “What the fuck did you do to Trestan?” He just jumped over a coffee table and (rest of page and every page except the last is torn off)”
“January 2nd, 2011
I just remembered two things about Happy Appy today, the show's original air dates and some facts.
The air dates were
Nick Jr/Noggin: April 26th, 1999 – June 3rd, 1999
Pre-TV (UK channel): May 16th, 1999 – March 31st, 2000
Brazil (I don't know where in Brazil): November 30th, 1999 – February 1st, 2000.
The facts are:
- Happy Appy had a scrapped DVD release.
- The director was tall and mid-weight.
- He went by the name "Fred"."
So it turns out that Tristen Yap isn't the director.
November 1st, 2011Edit
I finally did it. I killed Forenzik, and found a shocking discovery. Well, I think I have.
You see, I was driving home at midnight when I saw Forenzik running away from Jim's house. Knowing that he might have grazed, injured, or even killed Jim, I parked my car on the sidewalk and ran into Jim's house with my switchblade. I looked all around the house, except for the basement, but I couldn't find Jim or Forenzik. During this, I took a Winchester shotgun from his living room, just so that I could better arm myself. After checking all around his house, I went into his basement.
I saw what looked like Jim's bleeding body sitting on the floor of the basement. I ran to him, thinking that he was dead. However, he wasn't, and said “Oh jesus, Gerasim! Don’t scare me like that!” I said “Sorry, Jim. Did you know that F-” Jim interrupted me with “Yeah, I know what’s going on! Forenzik or whoever the hell he is has broken into my house! That's why I'm trying to trick them into thinking I'm dead.” I heard Forenzik open the door, and I loaded the Winchester. After telling Jim that I’d be back soon, I ran up the stairs and cornered Forenzik. He grazed my shoulder with a knife and growled at me.
In response, I shot him in the chest with the Winchester but someone looking just like him jumped behind me and tried to bite me. I shot him in the chest like the first one. I thought they were both dead, but the second Forenzik ran behind me and I angrily blew his head off. I went into the cellar and called the police, before I noticed that the first Forenzik's body was missing. "Oh god, please don't tell me he's still alive", I said to myself. When I went back to the cellar to see Jim again, I found a USB drive lying on a bookshelf, and I took it.
When I told Jim about the USB drive and where it came from, he replied “Well, that’s odd. I certainly don’t remember owning a USB drive like that. I seriously wonder what’s in it.” A minute later, the police arrived. I told Newport about what happened, and how there is a headless body of a second Forenzik. I got home, and put the USB Drive in my computer. It only had one file called “Instructions”. It was just a minute long video of the dead Forenzik saying “In your pillow will be” over and over. In your pillow will be what? I opened my pillow, and inside, I found a random switchblade, my wallet, which was missing a $20 dollar bill I had put in there, and a DVD saying “Happy Appy Complete Series” with a label saying Season 1 was on it, as well as Season 2.
At first, all I could say was “WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?” I could understand Season 1 clear as day, but who made Season 2 (and even if the episodes of Season 2 were on there, Happy and the Rhubears was almost complete, and Camp Aaah! was only 15% complete)? Could someone have made more episodes that toned down the violence? Or did someone make even darker episodes? Better yet, who made these? Jim? Kevin? Or maybe it’s Forenzik? It has to be Forenzik. But now, I don't even know. I'm only watching the episodes just because they’re Happy Appy.
Today, I talked to Jim about the DVD. His response was “Well, that’s very odd. I mean, who in their right mind would make two more seasons to that show?” He added that he wanted to see the new season as well, so tomorrow, we’re gonna go through and see the missing episodes of Season 1, as well as Season 2. Also, another interview was uploaded by the same man. This time, it was an interview with Trestan Yae.
Interviewer: Trestan Yae?
TY: That's me.
Interviewer: How old were you when Fright House Screamers was around?
Interviewer: What happened when you did Happy's voice on the first day?
TY: When I recorded my lines on the first two minisodes called “Happy's Vacation” and “Hurt Happy”, I did notice some odd things with the script for those episodes. In Hurt Happy, he ate an apple, which was weird, considering he was, well, an apple.
Interviewer: What was the worst thing that happened to you when you were on the show?
TY: I don't like to discuss with people about it, but here it goes. I was once dragged into the studios by a tall man holding a rope, which was tied around my feet. After an argument, we filmed the episodes.
Interviewer: That's just horrifying, to say the least. Do you know who dragged you in?
TY: I actually don't remember. The only thing I know about the man was that he was taller than most of us.
November 2nd, 2011Edit
This will be the first of three posts detailing Jim and I viewing the contents of the DVD. Even though we are watching the disc, I still can't get over the fact that there's another season of Happy Appy. I really can't. As soon as the DVD loaded, we saw that it had a freeware DVD burner menu. Obviously, Forenzik or whoever had made the disc did it as cheap as possible. I went to the episode selection and looked through the episodes for Season 1, in case there were any that I missed. The two distorted episodes for Season 1 were actually watchable, and were called:
Happy at the Fruit Olympics/Nate Needs Help!
Happy in Space/Mean Miranda
I pressed next and found the entire episode list for Season 2:
Happy Meets the Rhubears/Camp Aaah!
Happy and the Oranges/Happy's Van Breaks
Lighter/Happy and Blackberry
Forenzik, the Big Help/Nuxik
Rose of Blood 'n Bones/Can of Kill
Jar of Hate/Happy's Rising
Happy Kills Benny/Miranda Lives
Miranda Dies (there's no second episode for some reason)
Forenzik, a Bigger Help/Meaner
Happy Appy's Christmas/Happy's House
Forenzik, the Biggest Help/Danny's Love
Happy Fest/Happy Rots in Hell
Judging from the names, we could only guess that Forenzik made these. But who is he?
I played Happy at the Fruit Olympics, since that was one of two episodes of Season 1 I didn't watch. It began with Happy Appy saying "Hey kids! The Fruit Olympics begin today!" and watches the TV. It zooms to the TV, and shows a recreation of the Olympic torch relay, but with fruit. After the torch holder (an apple) lights the Olympic Flame, the games begin. It's a cheesy compilation of sports played in the Olympics, but with fruit. It reminded me of the Circus episode's Act 1 scene, but visually a lot better. Happy turns to the camera and says "Hey kids! The 2000 Olympics begin in a year! You should go see it!" and the episode ends. When it ended, Jim told me that he actually remembered helping film the episode, and even did a few of the puppets with Kevin Costo and Tristan Drews.
Happy in Space was next, and it was horrific. It starts out with Happy Appy sneaking on the Space Shuttle, and turns to the camera and says "Hey kids! Your old pal, Happy Appy, is going into space today!" and waits. The shuttle docks at a look-alike of the International Space Station. After all the astronauts leave, Happy sneaks out of the shuttle, and is seen floating in air. He says "Did you know that in outer space, there is no gravity, meaning you float in mid-air?” He puts on a spacesuit and goes out of the ‘ISS’. An astronaut is working on a broken part the station.
Happy says "In space, no one can hear you talk, or scream for that matter!" and stabs the astronaut. We see him float off into space for around a minute. After this, Happy goes back in, and find out that the shuttle is about to leave. Happy jumps in the Space Shuttle. The Space Shuttle begins to enter the atmosphere. Happy turns to the camera, says "Hey kids! Watch this magic trick!", and sets a man on fire. Very quickly, the shuttle starts to catch on fire. We see Happy Appy give a death smile as the shuttle is engulfed in flames. Happy jumps out before he gets burned, and lands in snow. He says "Hey kids! One day, you will see something like this on TV!" Behind him, the shuttle was breaking up into small pieces. The credits rolled.
I played Happy Meets the Rhubears/Camp Aaah! It starts with the intro, which is now an acoustic version of the intro. It begins with Happy Appy walking in the playground, with his injuries. He sees the green Rhubear running around, and Happy says “Hey, Mr. Teddy!” and the Rhubear doesn't respond. Happy says “Mr. Teddy, let's go find some kids to heal!” and the Rhubear nods his head. They hear crying coming from the swings. Happy and the Rhubear walk over to a kid who hit his head on the part of the swings that you sit on. Happy gets out some bandages and heals the kid. They hear a car ram into another. Happy turns around, and sees a long limousine crashing into a van, which wasn’t Happy’s. A man exits the car, and it turns out to be Aphex Twin himself.
He starts doing the dance with the umbrella, but it was just stock footage from Windowlicker hastily put together. Happy and the Rhubear walk up to him, and Happy says “Hey, who are you?” and Aphex says “My name’s Richard!” and Happy says “Let's go find some children to heal!” and Aphex says “Sure!” The rest of the episode is just them healing children who injure themselves on various parts of the playground. When we first saw this episode, it was so tame for a Halloween special that I thought it was a Season 1 episode mislabeled as a Season 2 episode. Also, I told Jim “Why was the episode “Happy and the Rhubears” if only the green one is present?” He said that there would have been all three, but they didn’t have enough money to get the others.
We saw Camp Aaah. It starts with the intro, which was that CSI-like intro featuring the main characters, Happy, Napoleon (who could be Forenzik) and Danny from the TV Movie. Why was the acoustic version used once? It starts with Happy driving his van, saying “Who's ready for a camping trip?” with two girls in the passenger seats cheering. After driving for a while, Happy Appy parks in the camp, xsets the wash cloth, and sits on it next to the girls. After staring at the sky for a few seconds, the beach jock apple appears. Happy says “Move it, ladies” and it's much clearer this time. Suddenly, some sort of quality shift happened. Happy's voice was different, the girls looked different, and so did the bully.
It was almost like another person picked up where Nick left off and did a horrible job at it. Anyways, the beach bully apple says “Don't go on the beach!” and Happy says “Why?” and the other apple says “Because I said so!” and pushes Happy out of the way. Happy decides to go up the trail to the beach. What he finds are a bunch of children playing on the beach, and one is poking at something out of view with a stick. It turns to the object, which is Miranda's body. Happy screams “STOP DOING THAT!” and brings out a knife. The next shot is the girls still sitting on the wash cloth, when they hear children screaming. One of the girls says “What happened?” and the other one says “Let's go find out!”
The two girls go to the beach, but what they find are a bunch of children's bodies in one horrifying pile. On the top of the pile was a bloodstained Happy Appy with a knife. He turns around with a death smile and says “Hey girls, I have a present for you! Come over here!” and they both walk over, and it cuts to the same place with the wash cloths, now with both the girls screaming. The episode ends with Happy Appy dragging some children back into his van, and driving off, with this narration.
“And that, my friends, is how Camp Aaah got its name, from Happy Appy himself!”
I played the episode Happy and the Oranges. It starts with the same old intro of Happy Appy dancing, and it cuts to Happy killing the beach jock apple. This episode must have taken place after Camp Aaah! We see Happy Appy walking around the playground, with children at play. Happy sees something to the right. He sees two puppets that were oranges sitting on a bench. Happy walks to the bench and says “Hey, who are you?” and the oranges said “We're the Oranges!” and Happy said “Well, I'm Happy Appy!” and the oranges screamed and ran off. Happy shouts “Every goddamn time!” and goes into his van.
He goes to the Oranges' house in the middle of the night. The first Orange is watching TV, while the second Orange is reading a book. The second Orange says “Hey, Oscar.” He replies with “What, Octavius?” and Octavius Orange asks “Did you know that no words rhyme with Orange?” Oscar Orange says “Oh, really?” Octavius Orange finishes with “Yeah. You know what? I'm going to go to bed. Running from Happy tired me out!” and Oscar Orange nods, and continues to watch TV.
Happy Appy jumps into the roof of their house, with an orange peeler in his right hand. He whispers “Hey kids, let's go skin the Oranges!” and Happy climbs down the ladder to where Octavius Orange is, and peels his skin. After that, he puts Octavius Orange in a vise, and starts turning the crank, and Octavius gets squeezed and orange juice comes out of him, replacing blood. After that, Oscar Orange knocks on the door, and Happy jumps into the ceiling. When Oscar Orange opens the door and turns on the light, he sees Octavius Orange's body, and screams. Happy Appy comes down from the ceiling, and peels and vises him in the same way as Oscar Orange, and the episode ends.
The next episode was Happy's Van Breaks. It starts with the intro, and goes into the episode. Happy is putting a bandage on a kid when he notices that his van's engine is billowing smoke. He runs to it and notices that a part of the van's engine is broken. Happy steals a mechanic's toolbox, and gets to work on the engine. When Happy Appy works on the engine, a kid kicks a soccer ball, and it accidentally bounces off Happy’s head. Angered, he gets a wrench, runs off-screen, and beats the kid to death with it.
He goes back and repairs the engine, replaces the coolant, and changes the oil. While helping more kids around the playground, we see the mechanic break Happy's engine in response to his toolbox being stolen. Happy gets pissed, and chases the mechanic in a POV shot. Eventually, Happy grabs the mechanic, stabs the back of his head with a screwdriver, and the episode ends. The odd part about the chase scene was that we didn’t see Happy’s hands during the scene, but a person’s arms and hands painted red.
Lighter’s premise was about Happy finding a Zippo lighter lying around on the playground. It starts with the regular old intro, but with the acoustic version. Why the acoustic version this time? It cuts to Happy walking on the playground. I have a question. If Happy kills a lot of children, why don't the children notice him instantly, or the parents? Happy stops, and picks up a lighter. He says “Hey kids, look what Happy found!” It cuts to Happy turning on the lighter.
He says “Today, we're going to learn about fire!” Oh no. I know what was most likely going to happen. Happy burns down houses and sets children on fire. I saw Happy Appy stand next to an actual worm. He said “Fire can give people burns, and in some cases, can kill them, like this worm!” He set the worm on fire, and you can see its charred body. Happy said “Magnifying glasses can also set small insects on fire!” before walking over to a kid. The kid didn't recognize him, and Happy turned on the lighter, and set the kid on fire. The kid tried to stop, drop, and roll, but it was too late. Happy said “Let's go find a house to burn!” and Happy walks over to a house and burns it down. The rest of the episode is just Happy Appy setting stuff on fire. At the end, he says in his cheerful voice “That was fun! You know, you should do just that to make me proud!” Jim said in a smug tone “Sure, let’s totally follow an apple’s words and burn shit down.”
I played Happy and the Blackberry, which was 2 minutes short of a normal episode of Happy Appy. It starts out with a giant angry blackberry puppet saying "Hey, my name's Derry Berry, and I hate Happy Appy!" Derry runs toward Happy, who is putting medical tapes and cotton on a kid's bloody gash near his wrist. Happy turns around holding scissors and Derry accidentally runs into them. Happy says “Remember kids, always look where you're going or you'll get a boo-boo!” Derry pulls himself off the scissors and tries to eat Happy. Happy pushes him off, and stabs Derry in the eye with a scalpel. Derry screams, and blackberry juice comes out of his eye. Happy grabs a rusty saw and slowly hacks him in two. The rest of the episode is Derry's body being ripped apart.
I played Forenzik, the Big Help. It began with Happy trying to kill June (just to clarify this, June is Danny's mother). He is struggling to kill her with the same saw he used to kill Derry Berry with, while June is trying to stab him in the face with a knife. Happy says “Master, master, please come help me!" and Forenzik, in all of his 'glory' walks in slowly, and says "Yes, Happy Appy?" Happy says "This woman is trying to kill me!" Forenzik says "Let me help!" and Forenzik stabs June in the back, weakening her.
The rest of the episode was basically a snuff film, recorded on a low-quality home camera. What Forenzik did on camera to June was absolutely horrifying, so I’ll be quick on what Forenzik did to her. First, he cut off her arms with a giant cleaver slowly and painfully. After that, he proceeds to cut off her legs with the same cleaver, and starts skinning her. After minutes of skinning, she dies, and Forenzik cheerfully says “Oh no!” He opens her guts out, and starts eating them. After 20 hard-to-watch minutes, he finally stops. Thank god. After that horrifying scene, Danny from the TV movie comes in crying and sets Happy on fire.
Forenzik threatens to kill Danny, he runs off-screen, and Forenzik walks out with a knife. Finally, the Happy Appy model melts, ending the episode. Jim’s reaction was, and I quote, “WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT?” I had the same reaction, but in a quieter voice. We had a lot of questions about this episode. Why was Forenzik in it? Did Forenzik make the episode, or did one of his friends? For that matter, did Forenzik really make the episodes? I don't know. And we really didn’t want to know.
I played Nuxik, which was actually called Happy Goes Bonkers. It starts out with a girl forming Happy into his normal shape, but drops a garrote wire next to Happy. Happy grabs the wire and kills her off-screen with it. After that, he says "Hey kids! I'm going to kill Danny!” The rest of the episode is Happy Appy going around, using disguises to try to kill Danny. They include the spacesuit from Happy in Space, the costume in Happy Appy Goes to the Circus, and Octavius Orange and Derry Berry's skin. Somehow, Danny finds out that Happy is trying to kill him. After the 5th attempt, Happy, like the title says, goes bonkers. He rants to the camera at how he never has his way. After 5 minutes of ranting, he stares at the camera motionlessly, and the episode ends.
I said to Jim that we would watch the next third tomorrow, and so I left. The thing is though, as I left, I swear I saw Forenzik walking up the street, but it was so dark that it could have been someone else.
November 3rd, 2011Edit
Welcome to the second part of the Happy Appy Episode Watching posts.
In Rose of Blood 'n Bones, we see Happy Appy painting a picture with red paint. The picture is of a rose in a playground. It was innocent enough, until we see Happy Appy run out of red paint. He says "Damn it! Oh, whoops! Hey kids, let's go find some red paint and white sticks!" We see Happy go out of his van and lure in two kids, and we see him mutilate them off screen. It cuts to Happy painting the same picture, but we now see him with more ‘red paint’ and ‘white sticks’ as the stalk of the rose. After a minute, he is done. He shows the result, and says "My masterpiece is complete. I call it “The Rose of Blood ‘n Bones". Hey kids, you too can make a painting using body parts and blood! If you make one, send it in to me and I will give you a prize!" but it cut off before the address was shown.
In Can of Kill, we see Happy cleaning out some large tin cans, and working on mechanics in his van. After a few minutes, Happy notices the camera, and says "Hey kids, I'm working on my can contraption!" and goes back to working on the can. It cuts to a tin can in the middle of the playground that has the note "OPEN ME!" on it. Happy comes from the left and says "Whenever someone opens the can of kill, a spray bottle pops out, and sprays the kid with poison! This is my best invention ever, and it should get me a Nobel Prize. Well, mostly for peace!” While he is talking his mouth off, we see a kid named Quincy open the can, gets hit with some sort of poisonous gas, and gets knocked out. Happy notices Quincy's body and says "Hey, it works! You too can make a can of kill! All you need to do is send 5 dollars to this address and you can wipe out anyone that hates you!" and an address was listed. Before the credits, Happy takes Quincy's body to the van.
I played Jar of Hate. Happy is sitting in his van when he says "Hello kids! Do you want to see my jar of hate?" A kid walks up to him and says "Happy, hate is a strong word!" In response, Happy says "Shoo, Jacob!" and pushes him away. Happy proceeds to writes Jacob's name on a blank scrap of paper, and puts it into a jar of names. Happy says "My jar of hate has the names of people I will kill! Let's see who's going to be the lucky ones!" He empties the jar, and picks out three names. Happy says "The people I will kill are Jacob, Miranda, and Danny!" He sneaks behind Jacob with the cleaver from Big Help, jumps behind him, and the credits roll, while you can hear Jacob being killed in the background and Forenzik screaming "STAND STILL!"
I played Happy's Rising. It starts with Happy healing a kid using a bandage, but he says “Hey kids, want to come have fun with me and Benny?” Everyone, including Benny, comes running into Happy Appy's van. However, to trick Happy Appy, Benny leaves quickly and silently. It shows Happy with a hand grenade and he says “Want to see a cool trick?” Of course, the children shout yes. Happy throws a smoke bomb, drops the grenade, and gets out of the van. We see a child scream as the van explodes into a thousand pieces. The scene is very realistic, with body parts everywhere. Happy polishes a toe, puts it in a jar, and puts the jar in a mysterious brown bag which has been in the background since the Blackberry episode for whatever reason. Benny runs over to Danny, who is playing with a girl. Benny says "Happy tried to kill me!" and Danny says "Well, at least you’re safe with me here." and the episode ends.
I played Happy Kills Benny. It starts out with Benny playing at the playground, but he notices Happy and his new van, which was all black this time around. He says to his parents that he wants to go home because someone is staring at him funny. His parents look at the area Happy was, but he is not there. They said "No one's there, though." and Benny calms down. Benny sees Happy again, and Benny runs towards his parents. He says that Happy is stalking him, and the parents see Happy, but he's helping a kid. The parents say that Happy's just helping a kid. Later, Benny finds a 25 dollar bill. He picks it up, but Happy stabs him. Happy drags the body into his van, and it cut to the credits, with a brutal murder being played. Jim found it very ironic that Danny said that Benny was safe with him, but in this episode, he dies.
Miranda Lives starts playing. It starts out with a piano version of the song sung by 3 of the 5 original kindergarteners (they were in first or second grade when the episode premiered). The intro showed clips from Happy and the Oranges, Happy Kills Benny, Camp Aaah, and two other episodes I hadn't seen yet. It began with Miranda's body on the beach. We see another kid poke it with a stick, but Miranda mysteriously awakens, screaming loudly. She says "Happy Appy is going to pay for what he has done!" and runs towards the playground. We see Happy Appy working on another portrait of a rose, with several more nearby. Miranda throws open the van’s sliding door and screams "Happy Appy, I am going to kill you RIGHT NOW!" and Happy says "Fine, do it. Kill me! Just try! You'll just get the wrath of my Master!" The episode ends.
Miranda Dies began. Miranda gets a knife and stabs Happy's arm, pinning him to the wall. Happy screams in pain and Miranda says "I finally have you in my grasp! Now, I will do what I have wanted for so long." Happy smugly says "What's that?" Miranda says "KILL YOU!" Suddenly, a shadowy figure looms over Miranda. It was none other than – guess who? - Forenzik. He coldly says "The only murder that will happen today is yours." Miranda screams and tries to stab Forenzik, but he slams her down on the table Happy uses to cut up kids. At this point, it’s quite clear that whoever worked on this episode used an obvious stunt double for Miranda, as her skin and hair were darker. Forenzik brings out a knife, and begins cutting her open. She screams in horror, and as soon as she screams, he’s irritated. To stop her screaming, Forenzik gets a random piece of wood on the floor and shoves it in her mouth, silencing her.
Forenzik opens her up, and starts cutting organs out, eating parts of them in the progress. By this point, Jim turned the TV off, and decided to take a break. We really had to. A couple hours later, he went back to the video, and we were greeted by more sickening scenes, which I will describe briefly. To put it in a nutshell, there’s cannibalism, necrophilia, limb dismemberment, and skinning. Yeah, now you know why I didn’t put it in detail. After that, Forenzik turns to the camera, smiling, holding a chunk of Miranda's brain. The episode ends. That's it. Jim and I can't do any more episodes. From here, they're just going to get more fucking sickening. I can't do it, and yet I feel some strange wish to watch the rest. Alright, we'll watch the rest tomorrow. But after that, I'm destroying the DVD.
November 4th, 2011Edit
Welcome to the final post of the Happy Appy Season 2 posts.
I started Forenzik, a Bigger Help. Well, that's just great. The last thing we saw yesterday was a snuff film, and the first thing I see today is possibly another! Oh well. It starts out with Happy saying "Hey kids, last week was fun, killing Miranda with my best pal. Hey, come over here!" and Forenzik walks into view, saying "Yes, Happy?" Happy says "You know, we've killed women, but we haven't done any children yet." Forenzik gasps like a fangirl, and says "Oh, you're right, Happy! Let's kill someone!" Oh god. I can't take it anymore.
They find a child skipping some pebbles at a lake. Happy’s van comes into view, and the kid flings a pebble at it, leaving a mark on the driver’s side window. Happy gets mad at the kid, so he shoves him in a burlap sack, and goes into his van. Inside, Forenzik murders the kid, while Happy sits in view. What happened was absolutely horrifying that I just can't say what happened in detail. I’ll just say that by the end, the kid only had half of his skin, his skeleton, and chunks of organs left. And, like the Miranda scene, you know why I didn’t post what happened. And before you say that I should know Forenzik's identity by now, I should mention that during his snuff films, he wears a ski mask instead of his gas mask. In fact, it's the same ski mask Napoleon wears in the CSI-style Happy Appy intro.
Meaner played. It picks right off after Happy Goes Bonkers, where Happy is in his van polishing his cleaver and cleaning the body parts of children. The corpse of the girl he sliced with the garrote wakes up, and both the girl and Happy scream. Happy injects the girl with some of the green fluids he used on the kid in Happy the Doctor, and proceeds to mutilate her off-screen. After Happy is done, he is heard chopping the girl's head off with the cleaver. Happy leaves his van with the knife and says “That was fun! Hey, killing is a fun thing to do! You can do it at home if your mommy and daddy allow you to. If they don't, which will probably happen, do it anyways, because I, Happy Appy, say so!” and the credits roll.
In Happy Appy's Christmas, we see Happy Appy drive to the playground in his van, but the van is all decked out in Christmas lights and decorations. Happy exits out the side door and says “MERRY CHRISTMAS, CHILDREN!” and gives presents to the children. We see one of the kids open his present, and it is a juice box. In fact, all the presents are juice boxes. We see the children drink them, except for one kid. It was Danny! All of a sudden, we see all the children collapse. When I first saw this, I thought he had done a Jim Jones and put poison in the juice boxes. But Happy says “Looks like my knockout drink worked!” and we see Danny run away, and he looks at Happy taking all the kids to his van. We see Happy Appy drive off, screaming “MERRY CHRISTMAS DANNY!” and Danny runs down the road, with some gravel, and throws them at the bumper of Happy's Van. Happy swerves, but keeps driving. Danny stomps on the ground and screams “I HATE YOU, HAPPY!” and the episode ends.
Happy's House played. We see a nice looking house, with Happy Appy standing in front of it. Happy says "Hey kids! Who wants to see my house?" and walks inside. We get a tour of Happy's house. For the first half, it seemed like a normal house. Suddenly, Happy says "Now for the main highlight of the tour. Are you ready to see my basement?" He goes outside and opens the cellar door. We see a dark room. Happy flicks on the light switch, and we see the basement, full of body parts. On the walls were dry splatters of blood, and skin stretched to look like bear rugs.
On the various tables were jars of body parts. There was one table covered in a cloth with a humanoid figure under it. Happy says "Hey kids! Do you like my workshop?", and goes to the table. He says "Well kids, here's my magnum opus under this cloth." He unravels the cloth, and what's under it is a statue of a human, made of human parts. It's unfinished, to say the least. Happy has yet to add the organs and the rest of the skin. Happy says "Hey kids, you should make a statue like mine!" and the credits roll. Jim made another snarky comment at what Happy said.
Forenzik, the Biggest Help played. Great, another snuff film, I thought, and seeing the list of episodes, hopefully the last. In this episode, Happy is seen putting organs into his statue. He puts a stomach, heart, and ribs in, but finds out he has no intestines. Happy screams for Forenzik. Forenzik comes over, and Happy says "Forenzik, could you please find me some intestines, preferably adult ones?" Forenzik nods, and goes out. We see Forenzik go into Danny's house, where he and his father are crying over the death of June. Danny notices Forenzik, and screams. Danny's dad rushes over, and Danny runs away. Forenzik slashes the dad's throat, and drags him out the door. Forenzik says "You are very lucky I haven't killed you yet, Danny" and takes Danny's dad to Happy's house.
Forenzik cuts open Danny's dad's stomach, and mutilates him to no end. Happy cheers Forenzik on, while Forenzik throws Happy Appy body parts like a bear throwing chunks of flesh to her cubs. After probably one of the less brutal snuff scenes, when compared to Miranda and the kid, we see Happy cheerfully place the intestines in the statue, and the episode ends. Jim couldn’t take this anymore. If we see another snuff film, I am so going to destroy the disc.
We played Danny's Love. We see Danny kissing the girl from a few episodes back, and Danny says "I love you, Jenny!" Happy notices Jenny from the bushes. He says "Hey kids! Who wants to see a relationship end?" Jenny goes near the road. She notices that a limo is there which looks like the one Aphex rode in “Happy Meets the Rhubears”. Excited for whatever reason, she knocks on the window. A man in shades, who looks a lot like John Wilkinson, rolls down the window. She says "Hey mister, you have a nice car!" He smiles, and says "Thanks!" Suddenly, Happy opens the door, and grabs Jenny. We see the limo drive away. Danny sees the limo drive away with Jenny. Danny screams, and cries for the last 5 minutes of the episode.
Finally, Happy Fest/Happy Rots in Hell were up.
In Happy Fest, we see Happy discuss plans in the camera. He says "Hey kids! I have an idea that will change the world! I will make everyone happy!" and brings out a knife. I knew what he was going to do. He was going to carve smiles into people's mouths. He got out of his van, and said "Hey kids! Who wants to smile, even when they're sad?" and all the children, which there were around five, come running into Happy's van. Happy locks the doors, does a death smile, holds up a knife, and we see the outside of the van, where children are screaming and Happy Appy laughing. After that, Happy opens the van door and climbs out. In the background, you could see a kid's body whose mouth had been stretched like Kuchisake-onna, but in a smile. Happy says "If you make everyone smile, the entire world will be a better place!" and the credits roll.
Finally, Happy Rots in Hell was up. I couldn't believe it. It was the end (well, minus the epilogue), and we couldn't feel any better. This is actually our favorite episode. Just guess why. In Happy Rots in Hell, Happy drives to an old house where Danny is hiding. We see Danny holding a knife, while another girl is with him holding keys. Danny says "I hope Happy doesn't come here, Abigail". We see Happy Appy knock down the door with brute force. Abby says "I'm going to go downstairs and open the door to the basement." Danny says "Okay, Abby, but if Happy hears or sees you, call for me." Abby walks downstairs, trying not to make a noise, gets the keys, and tries to unlock the door.
The jangling of keys alerts Happy. He creepily says "I hear you!" before running over to try to kill Abby. She unlocks the door and gets in the room right before Happy could reach her. She locks the door, and Happy shouts "Don't think you can hide forever, Abby!" before running. A revving of a chainsaw is heard, and Happy is seen trying to chainsaw down the door. Danny shouts "GET ME, INSTEAD!" and Happy says "Oh, goody! You’re much more important than her!" It cuts to a POV shot of Happy Appy trying to slice Danny with the chainsaw.
Danny runs into the stairwell room. Abby locks the door again, and the two run down the hall, as Happy tries to saw down the door. Abby finds out that there's a door to the basement, so she tries to unlock it, when Happy breaks through the door. He runs toward them, but Abigail unlocks and opens the door, and slams it in Happy's face. We see the basement, which is a bunch of pipes and a random chest. Danny opens the chest, and finds a knife and a revolver with 6 bullets.
Danny tells Abby to get out using some stairs to the side. She does, and Happy breaks through the door. He charges at Danny with the chainsaw, making Danny jump out of the way. Danny fires the revolver once, but misses hitting Happy. The chainsaw gets stuck in the wall, and Happy pulls it out, forcing him back and having him dodge 2 more bullets. Danny fires the rest of the bullets, and one hits Happy. He screams, and pushes Danny down. Happy grabs his chainsaw, and shouts "Now I will have my revenge!" Danny rolls out just as Happy Appy forces the chainsaw into the ground. He pulls it out, and notices that Danny is going after the chest. He charges at him, but Danny grabs the knife and throws it at Happy. Happy dodges it, and the knife hits a gas pipe. Gas sprays everywhere, and Happy rushes to clog up the pipe with a cloth. He stops the leak, but the room is covered in gas. Danny finds a box of matches, and lights one. He mocks Happy, and turns around. Happy says "You wouldn't dare." Danny says "Oh yes, I do dare."
Happy tries to slice Danny, but Danny dodges, and drops the match on gas, which ignites all the gas, burning Happy. Danny gets out of the basement in time, somehow not getting burned. Happy notices that there are some explosive chemicals to the side. He says "Oh no! It looks like this is the end for ol-" before it cuts to the house, where it explodes and collapses, due to the foundations being blown by the explosive chemicals. We see a camera pan to the destroyed basement, where Happy's melted, crushed body lays. Abby is crying nearby, while Danny is trying to comfort her. Suddenly, Forenzik grabs both of them, and coldly says "You have killed my creation. Now I shall do the same to you two!"
Finally, I played the Epilogue.
It starts out with someone playing Gloomy Sunday by Rezső Seress, while it shows clips from all the episodes in its intro, minus the snuff ones, albeit in black and white. It cuts to a man typing on a typewriter on his desk with the crushed Appy at its side. The paper the man is typing on seems to be about Happy Appy. A subtitle appears that says "Portrayed by an actor". A narrator talks over this scene.
"It looks like the evil rampage of Happy Appy has come to a close. Although he had died, his unfortunate impact on the world lives on. The many people who died on that show did it so the sick man who directed the show could see his true vision, a snuff TV show. Where the director is, I have no idea, but I think everybody would like to think that he died in a gruesome way."
But the man turns his face to the camera.
"You'd think he had died. But, although Happy is long dead, the director lives on, and somewhere in the world, he is making private home movies, which continue the horrible story of Happy Appy. But, you might be wondering one thing. Why did Happy Appy go so bad? We might never know until the director comes out and reveals why he made Happy kill all these people."
We see the director slowly fix Happy's puppet with clay model utensils.
"Somewhere in the world, the director is slowly rebuilding Happy's clay model, damaged in the series finale of Happy Appy. And if the director rebuilds Happy's clay model, who knows who might be killed next. It could be a celebrity's child. It could be the president's child. It could be any child. We can only say two things. The director is alive, and he might be killing someone. I hope someone will kill the director, Freddrick Gorgote."
It cuts to Happy's rebuilt model. The director adds a knife, it cuts to black, and a scream is heard.
"I hope someone will kill Forenzik."
The credits rolled. And now we knew who Forenzik is. He is the director who made this show, Freddrick Gorgote. As the disc ended, Jim said “Well, at least that’s over, and we know who Forenzik is.” He gave the disc to me, and said “Keep this. Even though I want this destroyed, keep it so that you can learn more about how these episodes were made.” I said okay, and I left his house to tell you about the last episodes. However, I didn't tell Jim something personal about me and Freddrick.
He's actually my step-brother. Yeah, I know, I should have told you this when I started the blog off, but how could I know that my step-brother was Forenzik? It's kind of complicated as to how we're step-brothers, so when I get the chance, I'll explain it. Oh, and I remade the episode list. I guessed on where Hospital Doctor was (it's not Happy the Doctor)

November 5th, 2011Edit
I don’t think that revealing Freddrick’s identity to the entire blog was a good idea, as when I went to sleep on the fourth, someone broke into my house. It was clearly Freddrick or one of his followers, so I got a gun and went to the kitchen, where I saw a man in Forenzik’s clothes trying to burn the house down again with matches, although this time, the Forenzik I saw was quite pudgy, indicating it could be John Wilkinson. Before he could light one, I shot him with the pistol, and he screamed. He dropped the non-lit match on the floor, and tried to light it again, but I stepped on his hand.
The man tried to slash my Achilles’s heel with a knife, but I evaded it and kicked the knife out of his hand. I grabbed the knife and match, and held it to his throat. He said “Do it. Kill me, and you’ll never see the end of my group.” I said “No, not today”, and knocked him out with a sharp, forceful elbow drop to the head. After that, I called the police over, and they revealed who was dressing as Forenzik. It was John Wilkinson. I wonder where Freddrick Gorgote is. He can’t possibly be in John’s summer camp!
November 6th, 2011Edit
I got it! You know the address mentioned in the Can of Kill (and possibly the Rose) episodes? I think Freddrick is actually hiding out where the address is! Now that I may have a possible lead, I'm planning on going to the address soon. How soon, you may ask? Well, I'm guessing somewhere in the next day or so. I'm thinking of some weapons to bring with me. I want to bring small weapons, just so that I could run from Freddrick if he snuck up behind me. Also, I just recently saw him, but this time, the filters of his gas mask were missing, and you could see his pretty scarred skin, to the best of my observation.
November 7th, 2011Edit
Oh shit. Oh shit.
Today, I found out that a Mr. Oscar Mathewson died today. Now normally, I would post on this blog the deaths of people if they worked on Happy Appy. This man didn't. In fact, he was a big fan of this blog, and would ask questions by my email. I'm horrified that Freddrick is starting to kill fans of the blog. I REALLY need to kill Freddrick now. I don't want him to kill any more people. I am going now, and I mean it.
Oh, and I got a katana today. I know I said that I would bring small weapons, but I don't think a switchblade will do much to Freddrick.
November 9th, 2011Edit
This post will be the last post to this blog. The sad thing is that I left many questions unanswered. However, the blog post will (or might) answer some of them, which relate to Forenzik/Freddrick.
First, I must talk about the trip to the address, and what happened. Since I live in the suburbs of Aberdeen, Washington, and the address was near Alma, Colorado, I chose to take a car ride, and I took some things with me. The first thing I took was a photo of Freddrick Gorgote, for when the Forenzik I find is actually him. I also took some weapons, like the switchblade, the shotgun, and that katana. After driving for almost 23 hours, I reached Alma, Colorado. The address, which I will not tell for people's safety, was over 5 miles out of Alma. I drove over to the address, and there it was.
It was a fancy abandoned house, sort of like the one in Happy Rots in Hell. In fact, it was the same house, albeit with a spray-painted sign that said “Happy Appy Fun-house!!!!” Why the house was rebuilt, I don’t know. To make sure Freddrick didn't trap the front door, I peeked inside. Sure enough, there was a shotgun trap using a Winchester. I tried to sneak into the window, but Freddrick locked the window, so I had no choice but to shoot out the window. I climbed in, making sure to not be cut by any glass. After that, I disarmed the trap, and took the Winchester.
The house was completely abandoned, and all lights were off, save for the room where the window was. I looked for the light switch, but noticed parts of the floor was wet, which, for me, meant one of two things. There was a water leakage, or there was blood on the floor. I ran to the light switch, and tried to turn the light on, but there was no power on, so I headed for the circuit breaker. Sure enough, the circuit breaker only had one room with power, so I flicked all the switches, and the lights turned on. I went back to the staircase room, which had the light switch off, and I flicked it on. There was some blood on the carpet and floor of the staircase room. I said “Hey, Forenzik! I know you're here, and I turned the power on for every room in this house. Now you can't hide in the shadows!”
There was no response, which I knew was going to happen. I shouted “HEY, FREDDRICK GORGOTE! I KNOW YOU'RE FORENZIK!” and no response. Since there was no response, I explored the house a bit more. From the staircase room, the living room was to the right while the kitchen was on the left. Since I was closer to the right than to the left, I explored the living room. It was very run down, since the couch was old, brown, and had various tears in the cushions and seat, the TV was an old 1950s analog set that could only display static due to it not having a converter box, and a frame on the wall had a picture of the weird guy from The Towers.
On the front wall, there was a door that was left open. I went through it, and I was in the laundry room. It looked like a regular laundry room at first, with washing machines and laundry baskets. However, some pieces of clothing in the laundry baskets were stained with blood, and over the laundry baskets was a framed photograph of Freddrick as Napoleon hanging out with Happy Appy. Other than a door to the right side that leads outside, there was nowhere to go. I went out of the laundry room and went into the kitchen. And I wish I hadn’t.
The kitchen was just as run down as the living room, but it was probably worse. There were countertops, dishwashers and an oven, but there were plates that had rotten meat infested with maggots on them. The stench was unbearable, so I quickly ran out of the room and into the kitchen, not noticing anything else other than the rotten meat. As I entered the dining room, I noticed that there was more maggot-infested horrid smelling rotten meat, so I ran into the next room over, which was the hallway, and looked at what the dining room had in it. There were various chairs, all of which were pulled out. Other than that, it looked like a rundown dining room with rotting meat.
The hallway was nothing special, actually. It was a hallway that leads to nowhere, for some reason. At the end of the hallway, near the laundry room, it looked like someone piled up a bunch of wood to block off entry to the hallway. I wonder why. After dashing through the dining room and kitchen, avoiding the smell and accidentally knocking a chair over, it was time to go upstairs. It was the only place I could go. As I was walking up, though, I had a feeling that someone was watching me. I turned around, but no one was there. I finally went up the stairs, and tried to decide where to go, the left hallway or the right. Suddenly, I heard an all-too-familiar voice.
“Hey Gerasim, can you guess who’s behind you?”
I froze instantly. It was Freddrick on the other side of the hallway. I said “Are you going to run away from me this time?” and he said “Now, why would I do that? You know I'd never run away!” and I responded with “LISTEN, FREDDRICK! How do you keep coming back?” I heard no response from Freddrick for a while, and Freddrick said “Well, I have some people who work with me. They do my dirty work and try to kill you.” and snapped back with “But anyways, how did you get here?” and I said “There was an address listed in two episodes of Season 2, and I went to it.” and Freddrick said “Ah, it looks like I shouldn't have put that address in. It would have made the authorities' search more fun. For me, that is!”
I wondered if I could talk Freddrick out of killing me. I said "Listen, Freddrick, why do you kill people?" and he cheerfully replied "Well, it depends on WHO I killed! If it was a worker of Happy Appy, it was because I wanted Happy Appy to be more mature, but those damn employees and managers wouldn't let me. Now that they're all dead, I went after your fans, and I'll soon go to you!” I was about to say that John Tresti, Jim Forester and Tristan Drews were still alive, but I stopped, probably because Freddrick killed them already except for Forester.
I said "Well, you don't have to kill people just because they ruined your show, or should I say 'magnum opus'." Freddrick took out a blood-stained knife and said "Do NOT make fun of my show! I bet you don't have the balls to make another comment. Well, do it!" Sighing, I said "You should have been happy that your show aired and got decent ratings. Look at some of the shows now that only air for a few episodes before being cancelled." Freddrick put away the knife and said "Eh, you're right. I should have been happy about my show." I was relieved to have finally corrected Freddrick.
"But I still love my lifestyle! I love killing people, evading cops, and, most of all, stalking you. Oh, the joys!" I knew that because Freddrick was mentally insane, it would be hard to stop his ways. "Freddrick, have you ever wanted to be successful?" Freddrick said "Yes, at covering up Happy Appy forever! I don't need your help, because I'm doing it just fine!" I said "No, I mean having a successful life." He shut up, before replying with "Well, yeah. Who wouldn't want one?" I cringed, before saying "Well, because you've, to put it best, fucked up your chances of having a successful life." Freddrick was shocked. He pulled the knife out again and said in a louder tone "WHY THE HELL would you say that?"
Sighing again, I said "Because, one, you killed a lot of people and the cops are looking for you. Two, if you're caught, you're going to jail forever, or put on death row." Freddrick finally knew that I was trying to tell him that because of his actions, he's never going to have a successful life. He finally broke free of his other personality. He said "Oh my god. I can't believe I fucked up my life. I really can't. If only it wasn't for my mental illness" Freddrick sat down on the stairs, and put his head in his left hand. "Listen, Freddrick, you don't have a choice. One day, you will go to jail, and you will die there.”
Freddrick said "Go. Just go. I don't care about life anymore. I'd rather kill myself than be put to the electric chair or lethal injection." I said "Listen, Freddrick, you could probably start a new life by changing your identity and moving to South America, but you’ll get arrested one day, so it’s a checkmate now!" Finally, he said "Listen, before I kill myself, I want to show you my true face." I said "Uh, sure?" and Freddrick took off his mask. I saw a skinny, pale face, with various scars, and hair that had been ripped out at random spots. It was none other than Freddrick.
Freddrick said "Well, Gerasim, it looks like it is time to go. I'm sorry for killing everyone related to Happy Appy. I'm now going to make the survivors' world a lot safer." He got his knife and jammed it into his throat, effectively killing himself. I felt depressed that I couldn't save Freddrick from his mental illness. I checked his body for anything related to him. In his jacket, I found some interesting things. I found a couple of knifes with dried blood on them, and a folded sheet of paper. Reading it, I found out who worked for Freddrick! There were about 9 names, meaning I haven't killed them all yet. I actually don't plan to. After taking the paper and his gas mask, I left the house, and went to my car to go back home, but leaving my shotgun, katana, and switchblade behind.
Well, this is it. I can't believe I have to stop posting on the blog, but I must stop posting on Happy Appy, because I pretty much did everything related to the show. I watched Seasons 1 and 2, killed Freddrick, played Happy Appy and the Golden Apple AND fixed the damn thing, and even went to the studios where it was filmed. However, that does not mean that the search for answers is over. If you look hard enough, you can find the answers to the unexplained questions that relate to Happy Appy. Now, you might be wondering two things. What will I do, and what do I regret when I quit posting on Happy Appy?
Well, to be honest, I will actually open up another blog, which will be a short-lived one that talks about Fright House Screamers. Remember that? Now, what do I regret when I quit posting on this blog? I have no regrets. I just want to never see this damn show again. I'm sorry for leaving this blog, but I must part ways for now.
See you soon,
Gerasim Vasiliy Yakovlev
P.S. I haven't explained something. How did the episodes get on Noggin? You see, not all of them did. Only a select few aired before the show was canceled. How the others came about, I don't know. Maybe Freddrick, after Happy Appy was canceled, made new episodes, which were more low-budget and gorier.
P.P.S. Here's a question I'm gonna answer. Where's the playground? You see, they did film the playground scenes at a real playground in Colorado. The only scenes they filmed in the studio were any scenes other than in the playground. They had two vans for Happy. The first was a miniature and the second was an actual van. After the scene in the Happy Appy Movie, they bought a new van. After the part in Happy's Rising with the grenade, a new black one was bought, and that's all I could find out.
Here are the contents of the list I mentioned. There's 10 names, meaning that four have either been killed or arrested, two have been injured, and four have unknown fates.
My followers and helpers -
John Wilkinson’s fate is unknown!
Blythe Underwood is arrested
Kenny Spooner was killed by Gerasim when he blew his head off
Shayne Rogerson is dead, possible cause of death by structural collapse of studio?
Willy Batts is injured, had his arm chopped off.
Nathan Jakeman (He posed as me when I tricked Gerasim into thinking I'm a sane employee. He didn't come, however!)
Milton Barrett was shot in the stomach while he was with Kenny, but escaped

The man who uploaded the three interviews closed his account on YouTube. But he has given me one last interview, which is with Ray Bollia, AKA Danny.
Interviewer: Ray Bollia?
RB: Keep it quick, please. I still have nightmares about what Freddrick had done to me.
Interviewer: How were you involved with Happy Appy?
RB: Well, it all started in a town called Alma, Colorado. I was living there peacefully, until one day, when I was kidnapped by Freddrick.
Interviewer: How did this happen?
RB: It was 1999. Happy Appy had just been canceled, and all employees were fired. The director, who was charged with a crime, had moved to Alma, where he lived under a new identity.
Interviewer: How did you get kidnapped?
RB: When I was 7, I was being babysat by my mother's friend. Late in the night, the man kidnapped me, without leaving a trace.
Interviewer: Where were you taken?
RB: I was taken to a house that had the shape of a barn. It had tinted windows, three floors, and a cellar. It was also dark blue. There, Freddrick filmed more episodes of the sick show.
Interviewer: How did you escape Freddrick?
RB: After filming "Happy Rots in Hell" at his house, an anonymous person tipped the police, saying that the kidnapper of me, Miranda, Abigail, and some other kids was living in the dark blue house outside of town. So, the police broke into his house and saved the four of us. Freddrick ran away, though, which I find stupid. He needs to be found and killed for what he has done to me! Sorry, I get too carried away.
Interviewer: Last question for now. What happened to Freddrick?
RB: He became a creature known as "Forenzik".

As soon as you’ve seen this post, you’re now either asking this or you're about to comment with something like this:
“Where the hell have you been?”
Well, the easiest answer I can say is that I basically decided to stop caring about Happy Appy. There are two reasons why. The first is that some members of Freddrick’s ‘group’, to put it in simple terms, are still seeking revenge. The second is that there’s nothing left to say about the show anymore. During the time I was gone, I went back to my family in Perm, Russia, and sometime later this month, my younger brother, Vladimir, is coming over to visit. Just a month ago, I got a job, meaning I have even less time to post. Also, during the time that I was gone, only one Happy Appy employee died, which is amazing, considering that, at the very least, five to seven employees died a year before I began research in 2011.
Said employee was Joanne Broope, who you may remember as one of the producers during the real Happy Appy movie. She was actually a post-production editor for the show, but she only worked on Happy's Vacation and Nate Needs Help. The interesting thing is how she died. Joanne wasn’t killed with a knife or anything Freddrick's followers would normally use. She had her head smashed in with a sledgehammer. Thankfully, though, it looks like Freddrick's followers have slowed down on killing Happy Appy employees, which is very good. Also, from now on, I'm going to call the people who work with Freddrick "The Followers" for consistency reasons.

Well, I guess this is the end of this blog. I just realized that there isn't much I have to say now, besides Happy Appy and Freddrick Gorgote, and both of those things are dead. Unless something new happens, I'm not going to update this blog any longer. I will still keep it up, so everyone can read about what happened.
This is part of the Happy Appy series
