* TalkingToHimself: Killface and Xander Crews are both voiced by Adam Reed, as is Wendall Stamps and Ronnie.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally the show would have been about the Xtacles with Killface as the big bad and Xander and his wife (who ended up becoming Grace Ryan) only making occasional appearances. When the title was changed from "Whisky Tango" to "Frisky Dingo", the plan was to have "Frisky Dingo" be an insulting nickname for the team (who would still be called Whisky Tango).
** Also of note: Had the show not been cruelly cancelled like it was, the first half of season three would have taken Xander and Killface to Killface's homeworld, where we would learn that Killface was the spoiled rotten prince of his people and explored him acting like a grown up spoiled brat towards his people....

An Creator/AdultSwim cartoon series which ran from 2006 to 2008, ''Frisky Dingo'' almost runs on ContinuityPorn and {{Brick Joke}}s, whilst being a Deconstruction of the superhero genre: pitting the villainous-yet-incompetent Killface as an AntiVillain [[VillainProtagonist Protagonist]] against the arguably-more-sociopathic Crews as an AntiHero.

After ''Frisky Dingo's'' cancellation, the animation studio behind it (70/30 Studios) shut down--but that turned out for the best, as the creative team behind the show eventually produced [[WesternAnimation/{{Archer}} a hit show about a super-spy with sociopathic tendencies]] that has run six seasons and counting.

** Xander's exasperated reaction - "God[[{{Beat}} ...]] dammit!" (Apparently the pause was to [[GettingCrapPastTheCensors get it past the censors]].)

* WordSaladTitle: The title ''FriskyDingo'' was originally supposed to be a mangled insult nickname Killface had for Xander's team (called Whiskey Tango), but the creators eventually {{handwave}}d it into the series [[spoiler:by making it the launch code for the Annihilatrix]].

* ShoutOut: Often subtle and used for one-off jokes. A prime example would be the poster of [[NubileSavage Raquel Welch]] (with Xander's face poorly Photoshopped on), kept by Ronnie in the Xcalibur's holding cell which hides the escape hole behind it just like TheShawshankRedemption.

** The first episode starts out as a ''[[WesternAnimation/{{Sealab2021}} Sealab 2021]]'' rerun before Killface hacks the feed.
