Doug

Show Summary

Created by former Nickelodeon artist Jim Jinkins in 1990 and produced through Jinkins' production company, Jumbo Pictures Inc., Doug follows the life of an average kid named Doug Funnie.

In 1991, the Nickelodeon produced episodes began airing and we find 11 1/2 year-old Douglas Yancey Funnie and his family (Phil, Theda and sister Judy), having just moved from their former residence in Bloatsburg, to the new town of Bluffington. There he meets Skeeter, Patti, Roger and Beebe, and his new life in a new town begins! Doug writes in his journal and sometimes even imagines himself as a superhero named Quailman to help him out with difficult situations and decisions.

In 1994 after 52 episodes, Doug was cancelled by Nickelodeon. In February 1996, Disney Enterprises bought Jumbo Pictures, Inc. and ordered new episodes of "Doug" to be produced (re-named "Brand Spanking New! Doug" and then later "Disney's Doug").

Disney aired the series as part of ABC's Saturday Morning lineup in the fall of 1996 (following Disney's purchasing of the network), and the show became part of Disney's One Saturday Morning block in the fall of 1997. These episodes aired on ABC's SATURDAY MORNING block (later renamed Disney One Saturday Morning) from September 7, 1996 to September 9, 2000.

In 1999, after 3 seasons, 65 additional episodes and a feature-length movie, "Disney's Doug" went out of production. Doug spawned merchandise such as clothes, toys and a number of books. During the course of the show, Doug was nominated for 4 Daytime Emmy Awards.

    To clarify, this is about Nickelodeon's Doug.

    Doug is about an 11 year old kid named Doug Funnie who lives in Bluffington city. Characters include Patty Mayonnaise, the cute girl Doug likes, Roger Klutz, the bully of Doug's school, Skeeter Valentine, Doug's blue skinned best friend, and Bebe Bluff, the kind but snobby rich girl. Doug lerans so many life lessons throughout the show. He also has an alter ego named Quailman, and his sidekick Quaildog (aka Porkchop). I urge everyone to see Doug from 1991-1994, it has a cool art style, great life lessons to learn from, and funny and memorable characters.moreless
  • a decent cartoon for everyone

    This is the best cartoons that Nickelodeon has ever been produced! Doug Funnie and Skeeter Valentine have the best and crazy friendship that's why many kids watch this show ages ago! It was really a cool show and I want my children to watch it also so I bought a copy at memorylanedvd dot com which provided me a good set of DVDs with very fine quality. It may look like a boring cartoon to some kids today but if their parents let them watch it with all the episodes, they will enjoy each moments of it. Certainly a good cartoon for all ages!moreless
  • Wet-Monsoon is an idiot

    10
    I just have to say, Wet-Monsoon is an absolute idiot. First of all, just because you're too stupid to grasp the wit and humor in the show, which sails over your vacant head, does not mean the show is boring. You found it boring because you didn't get it.



    Secondly, it's obvious you watched maybe 3 episodes when reviewing it again. There are only a handful about him trying to impress Patty. The show covers a lot of different subjects. Not that you care. You're not interested in reality because, well, you're an idiot.



    Finally, criticizing the names shows just what a vacant moron you really are. Seriously, you're upset about the character NAMES? What would be better, John Doe? Joe Smith? Josh Anderson? Richard Lloyd?



    They came up with distinctive names that people remember, not boring, generic TV names.



    In essence, you're stupid. Really, really stupid.moreless
