* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Mike Milo originally intended to voice Flavio and even recorded for the character, but re-casted the role after the animation came back under the suggestion of himself and Fred Seibert as he felt his performance didn't suit the returned animation and also believed it was a bit stereotypical. Rob Paulsen was chosen from auditions and he ADR-ed his lines for the short, supposedly doing an impression of Milo's 'Flavio' voice.
** Flavio was also pitched as a series to Nickelodeon but they turned it down in favor of WesternAnimation/FanboyandChumChum and they believed the concept was too much like WesternAnimation/SpongeBobSquarePants.

* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: Mr. Frank's receptive attitude to support Flavio.
--> '''Mr. Frank:''' Sure, Flav. I'll probably lose my job, my dreams, my future but anything for you.
** However in the first storyboarding, he does the exact opposite by saying: "You don't want me to lose my job because of your dreams, do you?"

-->'''Bossman''': Did you ''invent'' your way in again?! ''(gestures to the door with a hole on it)''


Added DiffLines:

* YouNeedABreathMint: A not-so-subtle one with Flavio offering it to his boss, prompting him to say, "awkward moment!".


* EmotionBomb: WordOfGod has stated that he's hyper-emotional. Flavio cries when he's sad, blaming himself or panicking (he may suck his thumb on that one) but that's not to say he cries in heavy situations only. Also gets very feisty when not being listened too. However, he is still nice through and through.
