The series aired on Canada's Teletoon channel and, in America, on FOXKids in the twilight years of the block (and of Saturday morning cartoons in general) and once aired on AdultSwim (since this show, like ''Ren and Stimpy'', looks way too gross and sexual to be considered "children's entertainment") in 2002.

* BlackAndGreyMorality: The Ripping Friends stand for Excessive American Vigilantism, which usually means buttloads of destruction, excessive and abusive violence on all beings, and a general pandering to Right-Wing Extremists. Still, they're definitely the heroes compared to their archenemy Citrus Head, Yugoslavia's most famous Villain/Torture Expert/Tyrant/OmnicidalManiac.

* GeniusBruiser: The Ripping Friends are actually scientific pioneers, and earn their HeroInsurance through breakthroughs in all fields of study. Unfortunately, they're also as idiotic as they look.

** A more logical [[AchillesHeel weakness]] for The Ripping Friends is lack of meat. If they're not gorging themselves regularly with meat products, their muscles shrink and they become skinny frail wimps.

* MissingEpisode: The episodes "The Infernal Wedding" and "Jimmy Gets Kidnapped" were left out of the Fox Kids broadcast of the series because it was just after 9/11 and the depiction of Citrocet as an evil foreign dictator who liked to blow up buildings was considered too controversial. (Oddly, they left in "Stinky Butt," which begins with Citrocet having already blown the Earth into multiple floating space chunks.) The episodes were added again during the Adult Swim airing.
