The generalized Hénon-Heiles system with additional nonpolynomial term is considered. It is described by the Hamiltonian \(H=\frac 12(x_t^2+y_t^2 +\lambda_1 x^2 +\lambda_2 y^2)+x^2y-\frac C3y^3 +\frac {\mu}{2x^2}\) and the corresponding system of the motion equations \[ x_{tt}= -\lambda_1 x -2xy +\frac{\mu}{x^3}, \qquad y_{tt}= -\lambda_2 y -x^2 +Cx^2, \] with \(\mu, C\in \mathbb{R}\). The standard method for the search of elliptic solutions is a transformation of an initial nonlinear polynomial differential equation into a nonlinear algebraic system. It is demonstrated that the use of the Laurent-series solutions allow one to simplify the resulting algebraic system. This procedure is automatized and generalized on some type of multivalued solutions. To find solutions of the initial equation as Laurent or Puiseux series, the author uses the algorithm of the Painlevé test. Let’s remind, that the Painlevé test is an algorithm, which checks some necessary conditions for a differential equation to have the Painlevé property. A system of ODEs has the Painlevé property if its general solution has no movable critical singular point (more in detail about it see: [R. Conte, The Painlevé property. One century later.
