General Trivia

  • According to Flaky's "Collect Them All" card, she is banned from balloon shops due to her quills.[1] She also mentions on her MySpace that she is also banned from glass shops and party shops.
  • In the episode From A to Zoo, Flaky was scared of a baby chicken hopping towards her, giving the implication that she has a fear of birds. But in the episode, Take a Hike, Flaky was seen returning a baby eagle to its nest with no reservations, further implying that Flaky only has alektorophobia, which is the fear of chickens.
  • Flaky is the only character who has lived in a regular house for the entirety of the series.
  • Flaky likes corn dogs, as can be seen in the episodes The Wrong Side of the Tracks and Double Whammy Part I.
  • In From A to Zoo and Take a Hike, every character can be heard humming the Happy Tree Friends theme song except for Flaky (possibly due to the fact that she is too nervous to sing).
  • Flaky is considered a tomboy, as she seems to enjoy male-oriented or jock sports (her Smoochie is baseball-themed and she plays soccer with Cuddles in A Change of Heart.

  • Flaky is the character most paired up with other characters in fanart, possibly due to the fact that she is one of the only four females in the show.

    • She co-stars with Flippy more than any other character.
