NOTICE: SHUTTING DOWN 4 JAN 2015

On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at tviv.org. --CygnusTMtalk

Frisky Dingo (2006–2008) is a fifteen-minute animated comedy from the creators of Sealab 2021 that is broadcast on Adult Swim. The series revolves around two major characters: Killface, a supervillain who is intent on destroying the world, and Xander Crews, a sometimes superhero who is attempting to prolong his career by making his superheroics profitable to the Crews Industries.

The original working title for the series was Whiskey Tango, which was later altered to Whiskey Tango Six. When the similarity to an existing t-shirt company forced the creators to change it again, they adopted the final title, Frisky Dingo. The series premiered on October 15, 2006.

Reportedly, Frisky Dingo was placed on hiatus after its second season so that series creator and star Adam Reed could deal with personal family issues. A spin-off series called The Xtacles premiered two episodes in November 2008 while the third season was still under consideration. The episodes were poorly received and a pick-up appeared unlikely.

In January 2009, Frisky Dingo production company 70/30 Productions closed its doors and, for that reason, the series has been cancelled.
