In the Season One opening credits, the article discussing Doogie graduating from high school says that he is 12-years-old in the first line.

This American series influenced me quite a lot, Doogie Howsers best friend is called Vinnie Delpino. I liked his character so much, that i took over his nickname and now call myself in the internet "delpino".
"Doogie Howser" is one of my favorite series. I don't know why, maybe because I can see myself in Doogie and Vinnie, or its the atmosphere it has.
It also sends out a positive message, there is no violence or explicit sex. Its funny, touching, and you can learn something. At the end of each episode Doogie writes a small note into his diary about what he learnt.
I also like the music of the series..
