YMMV: Blinky Bill
  • Base Breaker: Marcia the mouse. Some people love her for her fiery attitude and others hate her for constantly insulting and mistreating her friends.
  • Crowning Moment of Funny: In one episode, Blinky Bill seduces Danny Dingo while dressed as a woman. Hilarity Ensues.
    • Leading up to this, Danny insults Daisy's acting skills and she quits the bank robbery out of anger.
      • Causing Danny to throw a mini hissyfit by pounding softly of the table while grumbling.
  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming:
    • Nutsy being reunited with her long lost dad in the mothers' day episode.
    • Blinky building Shifty a wheelchair in the wedding picnic one after Shifty breaks his leg.
      • Also, Daisy working so hard to convince Ma to let Shifty go to the dance, and teaching Shifty to dance.
  • Crowning Music of Awesome, Tear Jerker and Award Bait Song - You and Me from the movie
  • Die for Our Ship: Let's just say Algenon from the episode Who Is Blinky Bill is a massive threat to Shifty Dingo X Nutsy and Blinky X Nutsy shippers.
  • Ear Worm - The main themes and credit songs.
  • Ensemble Darkhorse:
    • Daisy Dingo, due to the fan service.
    • Shifty Dingo. Which is probably why he became part of Blinky's crew in season 2. He gets a lot of fanart and the Shifty X Nutsy hurt/comfort pairing of course. The reason he's so popular is the fact he's an adorable Precious Puppy and a shy little Woobie who cries very easily. Not to mention the fact he's a totally Adorkable cute little boy.
    • To a lesser extent Ruff the frilled lizard may count as well.
    • Danny Dingo too as well due to his smooth charm and cool looks. Heck, the entire dingo family counts as a bunch of Ensemble Darkhorse. Even Meatball has his lovable and funny moments. And Ma Dingo can be seen as a real Bad Ass. But it's probably Shifty or Daisy who takes the cake for most popular dingo.
    • Slick the possum from the second season may qualify as well due to his cuteness factor.
  • Evil Is Sexy: Daisy and Danny Dingo, to the Furry Fandom.
  • Marty Stu: Algenon
  • Moe: Shifty Dingo, Slick Possum and Nutsy Koala are basically High Octane Sweet Dreams Fuel.
  • Moment Of Awesome: Miss Magpie flying out into a storm, PLUCKING HER OWN FEATHERS OUT so the others could follow her, to find Blinky and the gang in the second series finale.
  • Moral Event Horizon: Danny Dingo crosses this in Blinky And The Club Pet where he plans on feeding the people of Greenpatch to feral cats.
  • Puppy Love: Blinky X Nutsy in Season 1. By the end of Season 1 and throughout Season 2, Nutsy X Shifty Dingo. Also, breifly there was Nutsy X Algenon
  • Tear Jerker: The Mother's Day episode where Nutsy recalls losing her mother and Shifty meets her long-lost father. Sure, it has a happy ending but both Nutsy and Shifty become total woobies in that episode.
    • Shifty Dingo crying alone in the barn in the Apple Thieves episode. That is all.
  • The Woobie - Shifty Dingo, so very much. To clarify, he's a heartmeltingly adorable Shrinking Violet puppy which already scores him woobie points. He is unlucky enough to be lumped into a family of criminals and gets constantly bullied and blamed by the other kids. In the Wedding Picnic episode, he breaks his leg and his mother isolates him in his room. Any time you see him cry, you're just gonna wanna hug the daylights out of the poor puppy. And then there's the Apple Thieves episode where he gets captured by humans for providing his friends with food and cries his eyes out in a barn because he thinks he'll never see his friends again. On top of all this, his family practically uses him like a slave. Yeah, Shifty needs a hug.
    • Nutsy is this whenever her mother gets brought up.
    • Slick the possum probably qualifies as well. Just those big, sad eyes of his and his overall fuzziness....then in the Possum Cinema episode he talks about being all alone in a theater with no one to watch movies with him and you just wanna hug the daylights out of the poor possum.
  • They Just Didn't Care: The second season episode "Blinky Bill and the Bird Smugglers" comes off as a repurposed first season plot due to Shifty being a complete afterthought, despite being animated. Shifty is never addressed by Blinky or any of the characters and has about two lines, not that his mouth is seen moving when he does speak. It's pretty bad when the smugglers list off the species of Blinky and his gang except the dingo standing right there with them.
