** Colleen is interrogated by the enemy at one point, in an attempt to learn The Master's secrets, and instead all they get from her is a personal history, including an offhand remark of how she "flunked paper training, so watch your step", which could be considered a literal attempt at getting "crap" past the radar.

** It worked only once (and is said to be one of the factors behind the show's cancellation). While discussing [[{{Patronymic}} Russian names]] they used the example of "Sonov". Add that to the patronymic suffix "-ovich" and you'll see why that song got cut for later airings. See the video [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K46McMq9IF4&feature=channel_page here]]. To be fair, the dogs probably wouldn't see this as much of an insult, as they ''all'' are.

*** Some of the more adult-oriented parts of the series' fandom have interpreted her comment during this same scene that she had a fondness for "squeaky-toys shaped like bananas" as being a radar-dodging moment as well.

* MultinationalTeam: The Rovers came from the US (Hunter), the UK (Colleen), Germany (Blitz), Switzerland (Shag), and Russia (Exile). The Space Rovers (who are ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin) had a member who may have been from Sweden. Fanfic writers saw characters added to the team from Egypt and Japan by various writers. The latter character is still occasionally featured in artwork on [=FurAffinity=], an anthropomorphic website which showcases art rated G-XXX.
