Happy is a character on ABC's Once Upon a Time. He débuts in the fourteenth episode of the first season. He is portrayed by co-star Michael Coleman, and is the Storybrooke counterpart of Happy.

History

For events occurring before the casting of the first curse, see Happy.

During First Curse

During the height of the annual Miner's Day festival celebration, Leroy causes a power outage on the whole town. Previously, the residents refused to buy candles from both him and Mary Margaret due to their bad reputations. However, since the electricity is out, Happy and the other townspeople rush to stock up on candles from Leroy and Mary Margaret's booth. ("Dreamy")

Scandal rocks the town when Mary Margaret stands accused of killing David's wife, Kathryn. She is cleared of the murder charges after Kathryn's safe reappearance. To welcome Mary Margaret home, a party is thrown at her apartment. With Bashful, Happy attends the celebration. ("The Return")

After First Curse

After Emma breaks the Dark Curse, Happy joins in the reunion of his fellow dwarves and friends. They walk down the street with Emma, Mary Margaret and David as they figure out what to do next. In a panic, Archie runs over to tell the group Dr. Whale is leading the townsfolk in a mob to Regina's house. Although Leroy believes Regina deserves it, the others object as it is not right to kill. They are further obligated to help when Henry pleads for his mother's safety. ("Broken")

At the town border, Happy is rallied together with the dwarves. Leroy wants to make it their mission to find out what happens if someone steps outside of town. After he marks the border with a chalk line, they take turns picking straws, and the person with the shortest one will be the test subject for the experiment. While the other dwarves are apprehensive, Leroy forces them to think about the duty they have in protecting Mary Margaret and proving themselves to David. Mr. Clark has the shortest straw, but his refusal to cooperate causes Leroy to push him over the border. Magic courses over Mr. Clark and strips him of his Enchanted Forest memories. Led by Leroy, they rush back into the town square and inform David of the grim consequences if someone were to leave Storybrooke. The news causes a huge stir, but David sets up a town meeting in two hours' time and promises to come up with a plan. At the town hall, residents pack the whole building and anxiously await David's arrival. Instead, Regina arrives to demonstrate her newly restored magic powers to them until Henry agrees to go home with her. With no sign of David, the townspeople decide they would rather lose their memories by leaving town than deal with Regina. Happy is one of the many who attempt to drive out of town, but David puts a stop to it with a heartfelt speech. He convinces them to accept both their Enchanted Forest and Storybrooke selves by drawing strengths from their weaknesses. Moved, they all return home. Later, Happy and his brothers prepare their pickaxes to begin digging for diamonds in order to make fairy dust. On the street, they pass Mr. Clark. Leroy reassures him that they will restore his memory soon. ("We Are Both")

Happy and his fellow dwarves continue to mine for diamonds with David in the hopes of making fairy dust and then combing it with a magic hat to rescue Emma and Mary Margaret from the Enchanted Forest. ("The Crocodile")

During one day in the mines, Happy wants to treat everyone to lunch at Granny's, but Leroy persistently continues working and breaks the surface of a wall, which collapses and sends him falling into a cave. From this accidental fall, a whole cavern ceiling of diamonds is discovered, to which David, Henry, and Mother Superior are notified. In a celebration of their success, they all head over to the diner to drink and party. ("Child of the Moon")

While Emma and Mary Margaret are in a race to return to Storybrooke, Mr. Gold and Regina are unwilling to chance the possibility that their shared nemesis, Cora, could be the one coming back instead. With a wand, they steal all the diamonds from the mines and use the power within them to create a portal over the wishing well to kill anyone who tries to enter into Storybrooke. After discovering the diamonds are missing, Happy and the five dwarves enter the pawnshop to warn Henry of Mr. Gold and Regina's suspected thievery. With Ruby, Henry scrambles over to the wishing well to convince Regina to get rid of the portal trap so Emma and Mary Margaret pass through. Regina relents and absorbs away the portal in time just as Emma and Mary Margaret return. In a rush to save David, who is still under the Sleeping Curse, Mary Margaret hurries back to the pawnshop where she finds the six dwarves watching over him. With true love's kiss, she awakens David. To catch up on lost time, Emma, Mary Margaret, David, Henry and the six dwarves head over to Granny's for dinner. ("Queen of Hearts")

To commemorate Mary Margaret and Emma's victorious return home, the town residents come together at a party celebration held at Granny's. Happy converses with Doc and Dopey just as Mary Margaret and Emma arrive. While Ruby goes over to give the two a warm welcome, Happy looks on happily. A hush falls over the diner when David calls everyone's attention and begins making a speech expressing happiness at reuniting with his wife and daughter. Afterwards, all the party guests raise their glasses in cheer when, suddenly, Regina walks in. Her presence displeases some of the guests, but the subject is dropped once Emma acknowledges she invited Regina. With that, everyone dispenses to mingle and have fun at the party. With a drink in hand, Happy goes to chat with Doc and Granny. Towards the end of the night, he groups together with Bashful, Dopey and Walter in conversation. ("The Cricket Game")

The death of Archie is announced to the rest of the townspeople after Emma seemingly finds incriminating evidence via the dream catcher of Regina as the murder. Happy attends the funeral to listen to Mary Margaret give a eulogy dedicated to Archie. Following this, Happy, Bashful, Doc, Dopey, Leroy, Walter, Marco, Mother Superior, Ruby and Granny spend some time in Mary Margaret's apartment for a luncheon. Leroy approaches Emma and Mary Margaret to ask on behalf of himself and other dwarves when they will be returning to the Enchanted Forest, which perks everyone else's attention to the conversation. He is concerned about Regina being on the loose, but also the possibility outsiders can wander into town now that the curse is lifted. Emma believes they are safe for now while Leroy believes that trouble will happen sooner or later. ("The Outsider")

Storybrooke becomes terrorized by a giant, Anton, after he is freed from Hook's ship by Mary Margaret, David and Leroy, and then eats a magical mushroom to return to his regular size. He takes his hatred of humans out on the residents, but the effects of the mushroom wear off during a stomping rampage, and Anton himself is left clinging on for life. Granny stabilizes a rope to a car while Ruby and the dwarves keep their grip on it as David goes down to pull Anton to safety. In an effort to make Anton feel welcome, they take him to the diner. Once there, Anton reveals he possesses a beanstalk that can grow magic beans. While Anton is inspecting some of Storybrooke's soil content, Happy and his brothers arrive to accept Anton as an honorary dwarf and give him his own pickaxe with the name "Tiny". They commence in digging to plant the beanstalk stem. ("Tiny")

To protect the bean fields from being seen by outsiders, Mother Superior enacts a spell to make the area appear as an empty field unless someone stepped inside the barrier. After a day's hard work at the bean fields, Happy, Anton and the five miners are driven to the diner by David. Though Leroy invites David and Mary Margaret to have dinner with them, the couple decide to head home for the night. As the group walk towards the diner, Anton, who is expected to pay for everyone's meals, insists that he has no money. ("Lacey")

Happy goes his dwarf brothers for a trip to the pawnshop, where they look for Mr. Clark's old drinking stein, which they need for restoring Mr. Clark's lost memories. After the stein is found, Leroy orders the dwarves to bring Mr. Clark back to the diner, where they will have him drink the potion. To escape the trigger, Happy joins the townspeople in the diner, preparing to leave for the Enchanted Forest. David and Hook procure a magic bean to take everyone to safety, but Henry refuses to go without Regina, who has stayed behind to slow down the trigger in the mines. Mary Margaret suggests sending the trigger through the bean's portal, and though Emma is reluctant to try such a risky plan, Archie persuades her it's the right thing to do. Happy, along with the others, rally in agreement with Archie, until Emma finally relents. Emma and her family rush to the mines, dead set on capturing the trigger with the bean, but they discover too late that Hook previously swapped the bean for a decoy. Fortunately, with Emma and Regina's combined magic, they deactivate the trigger and save Storybrooke. ("And Straight On 'Til Morning")

Happy, accompanied by the other dwarves, Mother Superior and Archie, meet up with Belle at the docks after evading the trigger catalyst. Belle tells them about Emma and some of the townspeople having gone to Neverland to rescue Henry from Greg and Tamara. Furthermore, she warns they may have unwanted visitors since Mr. Gold has left her in charge of activating a cloaking spell to keep people from entering town. They all head down to the mines, where Happy watches some of the dwarves quarry a rock for fairy dust, which is needed to enact the spell. Once the rock is cracked open, Belle dumps the cloaking spell into it, and with the power of her belief, the spell covers a barrier over Storybrooke. Later, Happy and his brothers have lunch near the beach. Most of the dwarves agree that things in town are less troublesome without Mary Margaret and David around, though Leroy makes his disapproval known. Suddenly, Leroy spots a red-headed mermaid at sea, and as she steps out onto the shoreline, all the dwarves head down to get a better look. The red-head introduces herself to them as Ariel, and she asks for help finding Belle. ("Dark Hollow")

When the Jolly Roger, carrying those who went on the Neverland rescue mission, arrives at the dock, Happy is among the large crowd of townspeople welcoming back David, Emma, Henry and Mary Margaret. To everyone's surprise, Mary Margaret announces it was because of Regina's help that they were able to return home. Once again, a safe journey home prompts another celebration at the diner, with most of the townspeople in attendance. ("The New Neverland")

As the price for countering Peter Pan's curse, Storybrooke will be wiped out and everyone in it must return to the Enchanted Forest. Before the curse spreads through the entire town, Happy gathers at the border with a handful of residents, including the other dwarves. Regina soon sends Emma and Henry out of town to keep them from the curse's grasp, and as the pair depart in the yellow bug, everyone watches them go. When the curse cloud approaches, Regina stops Pan's curse by undoing her curse, sending everyone inside the town back to the Enchanted Forest. ("Going Home")

For events occurring before the casting of the second curse, see the counterpart page.

During Second Curse

A new curse is cast by none other than Snow White; returning Happy and the rest of the Enchanted Forest inhabitants to the town of Storybrooke. However, as a result of Wicked Witch of the West's interference, everyone's last recollection is the final day in Storybrooke when Regina stopped Pan's curse, but no one can recall anything further than that. Mysteriously, Bashful and Walter go missing. Just as Leroy reports this to David, Emma, Hook and Mary Margaret, Happy notices that Bashful is gone as well since he is not answering his cellphone. Emma and Regina manipulate the townspeople into believing the madam mayor is guilty while the two sleuth out the real criminal. Later, at the diner, Leroy announces that Emma caught Regina making a memory potion to prove she didn't cast the curse. They all agree that whoever takes the potion will remember who cursed them. ("Witch Hunt", "A Curious Thing")

When Regina bestows Henry with a kiss of true love, the curse breaks and everyone affected by it, including Happy, recall their memories from the missing year in the Enchanted Forest. ("A Curious Thing")



After Second Curse

During a town power outage, Happy, Granny and Leroy head to Mary Margaret's loft to convince her that she must fix the issue. While Mary Margaret believes this is something Regina should handle, Granny asserts it's her duty since she cast the last curse. Additionally, Leroy chimes that they assisted her in reclaiming a kingdom in the Enchanted Forest, and now Storybrooke is her new kingdom that she must rule. At the electrical service site, while Mary Margaret is looking at the circuit system, the trio of friends talk among themselves. Granny suggests reading the manual, but Leroy points out it's in Japanese. When Happy wonders if Marco could help them, Leroy disagrees since they won't get anywhere with a woodcarver. Granny mentions Dr. Whale, but Leroy doesn't believe the doctor can be an electrician. Interjecting into the dispute, Mary Margaret insists they don't need anyone's help. Moodily, Leroy talks about how grumpy he'll be in the morning without his coffee if the power is not restored by then. In turn, Happy begins stating out loud all the electrical devices that they might not have as his two companions nod in approval. Exasperated, Mary Margaret lashes out, voicing her overworked and tired lifestyle since having a new baby, and maintains that although she cast a "little" curse, it wasn't her choice to maintain a town with residents dependent on electricity despite that they previously lived in the Enchanted Forest without it. Lastly, she spitefully tells them to buy a flashlight, which shocks Happy, Granny and Leroy into silence as they exit the service site. ("White Out")

As the town falls under the influence of Ingrid's curse, mirror shards rain down from the sky and invade people's eyes; causing them to see only the bad in others and turn on each other. When the curse comes into effect, Happy shoots a crossbow arrow at Leroy, who runs off, as he himself follows. A snow fall, triggered by Ingrid sacrificing herself to stop the curse, blows through the air. Returning to his old self, Happy reconciles with Leroy and they laugh about their prior crossbow encounter. The pair are then joined by Dopey and Mr. Clark. As Mr. Clark goes to talk with Bashful, Granny and Walter, the remaining trio witness Emma's reunion with her family. ("Shattered Sight")

After Isaac rewrites new lives for everyone, he sends Happy and every former Enchanted Forest native to an alternate reality inside his book, Heroes and Villains. ("Operation Mongoose Part 1")

For events occurring after the creation of the alternate reality, see counterpart page.

Before Third Curse

Harnessing the quill, Henry reverts Isaac's stories and returns everyone to Storybrooke. That night, a celebratory diner party commences, with Happy and most of the townspeople in attendance. The festivities are interrupted when Belle enters the diner seeking help to save Mr. Gold, who is on the verge of death and must be saved before he loses all his humanity. ("Operation Mongoose Part 2")

After Emma has become the new Dark One and flees to another realm, her family and friends work to find her using the Apprentice's wand, however, Zelena gets hold of it and creates a cyclone. Happy, Leroy and Doc spot the monstrosity and rush into the diner, where many are seeking shelter. After Mary Margaret reassures the dwarves that they summoned it, Regina tells them to leave, but on behalf of the present dwarves, Leroy refuses, much to Mary Margaret's surprise. He relates frustration about being on the sidelines too long, and that the dwarves will be there with her, even if Mary Margaret says they aren't needed because they aren't willing to abandon her. Mary Margaret thanks him for the kind words, just before the cyclone whisks the diner to the Enchanted Forest. ("The Dark Swan")

After their arrival to the Enchanted Forest, some of the group search for Emma, and after they return to the diner with her, Happy and the rest of the gang come out of the building to greet her. Soon, they are approached by King Arthur and his knights, who believe they are prophesied to reunite them with Merlin. The whole group is then led to King Arthur's castle in Camelot. ("The Dark Swan")

At the castle, King Arthur introduces the group to his Queen, Guinevere, and he announces there will be a ball held in their honor. Leroy reacts well to this news, telling Happy and Doc that it is a good thing they came, as Granny chimes in that she won't have to cater. Before the ball festivities begin, Happy and the rest of the group wait with the other party-goers to watch Emma and Mary Margaret walk out and be formally introduced. Then, Regina comes out and is introduced as the savior. During the celebration, Happy sticks with Granny at the sidelines, observing the dancing couples. ("The Price")

After Hook helps stop Arthur and Zelena from obtaining the flame ember from Emma, he relates to Henry about how he punched Arthur, as Happy listens in on the story as well. With the lit ember, Emma begin reforging the sword and dagger into one weapon, with everyone else present. Suddenly, Hook collapses from a cut he previously sustained from Excalibur, which no magic can heal. A desperate Emma, willing to do anything to save him, including creating more darkness, teleports away with Hook. As she tethers Hook's life to Excalibur, making him a Dark One like herself, Happy and the others remain in the diner, looking on in alarm as black tendrils of darkness evaporate from Merlin's body. ("Birth")

Despite Emma's efforts to turn Hook away from the darkness, he kills Merlin to enact another curse to return everyone to Storybrooke so he can fulfill his centuries old grudge against Mr. Gold. In the hopes of finding a way to return him to the man he used to be, Emma absorbs Hook's memories from the last six weeks into a dreamcatcher, and she does the same with Happy and everyone else, to ensure no one remembers Hook becoming a Dark One, before adding the dreamcatcher to the curse brew, creating a full memory wipe. Soon, the curse spreads and sends them all back to Storybrooke. ("Broken Heart")

After Third Curse

Upon arrival to Storybrooke, Happy and the others crash to the floor from the impact of the diner dropping onto the ground, and as they get up, the group realize they are still in Camelot attire, and the last thing anyone recalls is entering King Arthur's castle. Emma, in order to keep Hook's secret under wraps, enters and professes that she will punish them for what they did to her. ("The Dark Swan", "The Price", "Broken Heart")

The next day, Happy heads out to the town line with the remaining five dwarves. Leroy asks for a volunteer to cross the border, but all the dwarves say, "Not it", except for Dopey, who holds up a notepad with the words, "Not it", but Leroy makes him go anyway. Before Dopey goes past the town line, David, Mary Margaret and Regina drive up to stop them. Leroy insists they have to know whether it's safe to leave town, especially since Emma is the Dark One and there's no one to protect them now. Dopey crosses and nothing happens, but then, he turns into a tree. Later, while walking down the street as they carry their pickaxes, Happy and Leroy discuss Dopey's state and wonder if he can still eat tacos even though he's a tree. Suddenly, they are approached by a man on horseback, whose two knights dismount and draw their swords. The dwarves try to fight back, but they are quickly disarmed. The man takes off his helmet, revealing he is King Arthur, and demands to know why he was brought to this land. Happy and Leroy take him to see Regina, Mary Margaret and David at the mayor's office, where they brief him on Emma's curse and the memory wipe. Robin Hood notifies them about Little John finding other Camelot residents in the woods, to which all the men go to search for them. That night, Leroy and Walter haul the statue Mr. Clark into the diner, as the other dwarves follow them in. While all six dwarves are sitting in a booth altogether, Regina walks past, magically reverting Mr. Clark to normal. ("The Price")

As Happy and the other dwarves are mining, Leroy encourages them to be productive since Dopey can't at the moment. Happy jokes that Dopey is helping by producing oxygen as a tree, causing everyone else to laugh at the comment, though a stern Leroy tells them to stay focused. At this, they resume mining, only to be interrupted by Emma's unexpected presence. After she steals Happy's pick ax, the dwarves go to David and Mary Margaret, demanding they do something about their daughter. Leroy threatens to take action with Emma if they won't, and he calls out David for acting like a scared parent rather than the sheriff. In an effort to keep things calm, David asserts that he'll figure out a way to get the ax back. Disappointed and upset with his response, the dwarves leave in a huff. ("Siege Perilous")

After Hook, as a Dark One, has let the previous Dark Ones into town, Happy and the other dwarves join the main crew to stop him. They split up to look for Hook, and as the dwarves search together, they find themselves cornered and surrounded by six Dark Ones. After the Dark Ones let them go, the dwarves regroup with everyone else, unsure of what just transpired. On Mr. Gold's suggestion, they check their wrists, with all realizing the Dark Ones have branded each of them with a symbol. Since the Dark Ones cannot fully exist without making living souls to take their places in the Underworld, the branded residents will be taken away by Charon once the moon reaches its zenith. In the end, a reformed Hook absorbs the darkness, having Emma kill him, extinguishing all the Dark Ones, therefore saving everyone who was branded from their impending deaths. ("Swan Song")

Following Hades' defeat by Zelena, at the cost of Robin's life, Happy attends the funeral to mourn the loss of Robin. As he looks on, some of the townspeople pay their respects by placing rose entwined arrows on Robin's casket. ("Last Rites")

After Robin's funeral, Happy joins the other townspeople at the diner for the wake. When Mr. Gold absorbs Storybrooke's magic into a piece of the Olympian Crystal, a tremor erupts through town, which is felt by everyone in the diner. ("Only You")
