Alongside animating the Happy! character once more, the team also assisted in the creation of a host of supplementary characters.

In the second season, the action moves forward from Christmas to Easter. Axis Studios says its 100-strong team of artists “worked hard to raise the bar on the animation of the lead character by significantly improving the rig, creating more nuanced emotions, and continually working to integrate him seamlessly into the real-world environments.”
