Horrid Henry's Happy Family is the twenty-sixth episode in Series 2 and the 78th episode overall.


Mum, Dad, Peter and Henry enter a happy family competition. Can they win it?


The episode begins with the family in the park when Henry throws a slug at Peter's sandwich. Mum gives him another one when a man who comes over tells them about the happy family competition there, running the family agree to enter except Henry. Dad tells Henry he will make this work, or else TV will be a distant memory for him, making him scream, 'Noooo!!!', opening the title card.

Stuck-Up Steve and Rich Aunt Ruby also entered Peter's suggestion to flowers arranging much to Henry's dismay. Mum agrees. Although Steve manages to take the last piece of the cake before Henry, Peter offers him a cucumber sandwich only for Henry to yell he hates cucumber. Mum then tells Henry and Steve to go outside and play. Steve then tells Henry outside that whoever wins, gets to go on a two week family holiday on a tropical island. Henry agrees to enter it. Unfortunately for Henry, Moody Margaret's family entered as well.

Henry then walks out of the school and meets Al that he wants to play football with him. Henry said he can't because he has to go home because he's practicing being the happiest family ever. Al says, 'You going in for that competition?', and Henry said, 'Yeah. And, I'm gonna make sure we win it, too.', and tells Al to call him Happy Henry, but Margaret said the competition is hers.

Henry hoovers Mum's dust, so he tries to suck up Bunny only to get sent to his room. They practised being happy hanging up the washing, but whenever Henry wasn't looking Margaret moved the basket, which made him blame Peter much to Margaret's delight at school.

In the competition, Margaret takes all the toys out of the box and puts them inside, which made Henry blame Peter. It failed because Henry gives his brother a teddy bear. Next, Steve puts the plate of sandwiches that Henry hates. The three families do things to be happy. However, when Henry's family is having tea, Henry says that he loves cucumber, which makes Henry's family win. To Steve and Margaret's dismay, they scream 'Noooo!!!'.

Henry happily relaxes at the beach leaving Peter buried in the sand. Peter asked Henry if he can come out now, ending the episode.
