Trivia

Star Neil Patrick Harris reportedly drew inspiration from watching Robert Young in Marcus Welby, M.D. (1969). Learning that Young was ill and pondering death, Harris visited Young with tapes of "Doogie Howser" and helped cheer him up. See more »

Goofs

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. The next article, however, says that he graduated from Princeton, a college, at age 10. This was later changed, in Season 2, from 12 to 9-years old. See more »

where I got my name from
6 February 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

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..
