Sylvia: The one about the talking apple that was originally some kids show that predicted 9/11 and the Japan earthquake despite being made by some nutbar who turned the show and story into a snuff film?
Mirror: That’s the one.
Sylvia: What about it?
Mirror: Well, today we’re going to be Riffing a “Happy Appy” story.
Sylvia: Please tell me it’s not the main one.
Mirror: What? No. It’s the “Happy Appy Original Thread.”
Sylvia: Wait, what?
Mirror: Yep. This apparently predates the original story. Maybe it drew inspiration from this thread. I have no idea. But it’s still Creepypasta…sort of.
Sylvia: Do we actually Riff Creepypasta, or weird Creepypasta fan fiction?
Mirror: I try not to think about it. Anyway, let’s make some Bush did 9/11 jokes, and Riff this bitch!
(Riffer’s Note: As stated in the intro, this isn’t the real Happy Appy Creepypasta, just some Happy Appy thread posted on ROBLOX in 2010, and then added to the Spinpasta Wiki. That being said, it’ll still be Riffed as if it were a normal story)
Does anyone here remember Happy Appy?
Mirror: No, but I do remember “Candle Cove.”
It was this old show back when I was like three, and I remembered, and it was on Nick Junior. It started with like, happy appy was some nice dude who was an apple and he would help kids with cuts and stuff, but as the episodes progressed, happy appy was getting sort of a menacing smile when he helped the kids.
Sylvia: Maybe he just has Resting Psychopath Face.
Eventually, there was reports of kids getting nightmares in the complaints thing, so after a final episode, which wasn't even showed on nick junior because it was to violent. Happy appy went around picking up kids in his van and would just slaughter them.
Mirror: Did he lure them in with candy? If so, I feel like that there’s some sort of metaphor there…
The video was never shown on TV, but I just stumbled upon that last episode somewhere online and watched it.
Sylvia: And that’s the best description you could come up with?
Starting a new Candle Cove, are you?
Mirror: Heh. I like this guy.
I remember that show.
And ugh, I remember since nobody video taped it, there was like no proof of it on,
Sylvia: You said you saw the last episode. Have some consistency, dammit!
but happy appy was really just a clay model with a mouth drawn on it and it didn't move, and it was a puppet show. Now, all the evidence is that last episode, which I am currently trying to re-find, and all there is besides that is remakes poorly drawn in MS Paint of a red apple with a smile on it.
Good luck making this as widespread as Candle Cove.
Mirror: Sassy little bugger, ain’t ya?
I remember that clay thing on clubhouse disney.
Sylvia: (Meltorian): OMG GUIZ! SO SPOOPY!
I thought that was a dream! I have a very faint memory of that happening and I always though it was a dream to this day! I remember the episode where Happy Appy was patrolling in his van and found a child with a bruise. And then I don't remember after that. It was when I was like, 1!
Yeah, and happy appy would be like "What do you need to put on for this booboo?" and then he would just stare at the screen for like 30 seconds and be like "That's right! A band-aid!"
Mirror: So…is this the precursor to Dora the Explorer?
and when he stared, it always gave me the chills.
I think it was on all the baby channels, it may have been on playhouse disney, but I only remember it on Nick Junior.
I guess I'll be hunting for the episodes if anyone needs me.
Did some research....
Like 5 posts in that thread mention Happy Appy.
Sylvia: It’s a link to a ROBLOX thread. I wouldn’t count looking on ROBLOX as “research.”
Happy Appy sortof looked like the koolaid guy
Mirror: OH YEAH!
but in apple shape, and his mouth was just drawn on there and it stayed open in a smile all the time.
Posted about this in RT.
Happy Appy was some fad from last month, right?
It was a show and then some dude made some crappy MS Paint Remakes as decals and started it as a fad.
Sylvia: Crappy MS Paint thing…Homestuck?
Mirror: Oh, we are going to get so much shit for that.
Ahhh, I remember. Heres the guy that made the remakes, it's in his decals.
Nice try starting another creepypasta
Chipper, I think you're DreamLucid, you were the one with all the mind tricks.
Mirror: DreamLucid’s a Jedi?
This would be a good creepypasta though.
Sylvia: No, no it wouldn’t.
No boeing, this was real. I seriously can remember happy appy on that metal stick walking through that school playground helping children that got hurt.
I also remember when the switched from the bent rusty model of the stick he was on was switched with a much nicer, yet still bent model.
And his Van would always play the show's theme song in it's radio...
Mirror: (Theme Song): MOVE BITCH, GET OUT THE WAY!
It was something along these lines, in the tune of mary had a little lamb;
Happy happy appy hap! Appy hap! Happy appy happy app! He helps kids every day!
or something like that, and it repeated like 3 times.
I wonder if anyone remembers tha- nah....
That episode couldn't have been real, it must've been my imagination xD
Sylvia: No, it was totally real. Just like you said a bit earlier. Do you have multiple personalities that take over typing at various intervals?
I kept getting nightmares. I dreamt that happy appy's face peeled back revealing a rotting apple core. Scared the crap out of me then, I laugh about that stupid dream now. But it was a recurring dream. But after I forgot about Happy Appy, I never had the dream again.
Mirror: (Meltorian): But now that I do remember, I’ve taken to wetting my bed again.
Did you just read my mind or something?
No... Impossible. I think that happy appy must've just gotten a cut. Didn't the kids help him heal it after that? I think we both just mistaked it for the wrong thing.
No. His face just peeled off and he stared straight at the screen, and that's when I stopped watching it...... I guess it wasn't a dream.
Sylvia: Make up your minds! Was it a dream, or wasn’t it a dream? Jesus!
But he clearly did not get a cut. His skin just peeled back, in a way that I didn't think was even possible for that clay model and it just revealed like, green rotting apple core.
Oh, remember the tower episode? Some plane crashed into 2 towers, and people were screaming and stuff. There was a kid stuck underneath the rubble crying, One of the kids asked if they should help get him out, but happy appy said "It's natural, kids" and dragged them away.
Mirror: It’s not natural! After all, everyone knows that jet fuel can’t melt steel beams.
"its natural kids" lol
But...Wasn't the show on BEFORE 9/11 happened? Creepy...
Sylvia: Bush did 9/11 confirmed.
Mirror: This story isn’t all that good.
Sylvia: Ok, so since this is supposedly the “original” “Happy Appy” story, I won’t judge it by the “real” “Happy Appy” story. As far as I know, the “real” one is simply a take-off from this. As such, I’ll judge it as if it’s its own thing. And, honestly, it’s kind of a meh “Candle Cove” rip-off. “Candle Cove” was written in a unique way (this is really the only kind of knockoff of the style I’ve seen), and with each new reveal, the show seemed darker and creepier. Here, it seems like the “creepy” reveal was in the first post. Happy Appy goes around killing kids. Ok, creepy. And you wasted it. You could’ve saved that towards the end, and gone the “Candle Cove” route of gradually doing that. Mention that, at first, Happy Appy was creepy. Then continue down Repressed Memory Lane by detailing some of the stuff he did. Add subtle hints. Have someone say they remember Happy Appy holding a blade of some sort. Maybe a bit of screaming? Stuff like that. Then, wrap it up with your big reveal…9/11? Wait, what? That’s…really kind of stupid. Since when was Happy Appy, the show or character, ever mentioned as prophetic? Sure, he’s been shown to be a serial killer, but that’s about it. So this 9/11 twist kind of comes out of nowhere. Admittedly, the “Candle Cove” twist was a bit bizarre, but it did help make the ending somewhat creepy. It made you wonder what, exactly, “Candle Cove” was, and explained why there was so little proof it ever existing. The twist in “Happy Appy” is that the show predicted 9/11, and that Happy Appy’s kind of dick? Umm…ok? See, if there was some foreshadowing to this twist, it might’ve worked a bit better. Maybe have Happy Appy mention another disaster or something, or, like in the “real” story, have a part with the Japan earthquake. Sure, in the “real” story the prophetic angle never went anywhere, but here it would’ve worked better because no one knows very much about the show. Just a thought. Also, I know this was copied from a message board on ROBLOX of all places, but it really makes a story less scary when someone calls bullshit on it.
Mirror: There are some good things. The spelling and grammar can kind of be ignored here, since it’s from a message board. And, if you’ve read “Candle Cove,” you know a story like that works better with bad spelling and grammar, since not everyone on the Internet can write literately, as anyone who’s been following these Riffs or using the Internet knows. It’s not very long, so it’s not much of a drag to read. And at least it’s not a “Squidward’s Suicide” rip-off. This may seem like a weird pro, but keep in mind many, many, many, many crappy lost episode stories rip off that story. So many stories are basically “I found this totally spoopy VHS tape with a spoopy version of a show I like.” Here though, it’s ripping off “Candle Cove.” Honestly, it’s kind of a breath of fresh air seeing a rip-off of what’s actually a pretty good story. That being said, not only does it not live up to “Candle Cove,” but it’s a pretty meh story (or string of comments). But that’s what we think. What do you guys think? Was the story good? Was the Riff good? Do you wish we’d be killed by a talking apple (honestly, knowing our lives, I’m surprised nothing like that’s happened already)? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
