One Of The Few Remaining Decent Shows On Nickelodeon
18 July 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is about a kid named Doug Funnie who moves with his family to the town of Bluffington from his old town of Bloatsburg. Doug immediately feels uncomfortable in this new town, that is until he meets Skeeter Valentine and two become best of friends. The show follows a lot of Doug's experiences as he adjusts to living in Bluffington. Doug meets a lot interesting people, gets hassled by Roger Klotz and even falls in love with Patty Mayonnaise.

This is indeed one of my favorite shows, my favorite being Ren & Stimpy.

As I said before, this show and,"Hey! Arnold" are the two remaining decent shows on Nickelodeon. Idiotic crap like The Wild Thornberry's, Spongebob Squarepants, and Rocket Power, are without a doubt, taking over what was once, one of the best children's television stations on cable. > Shows like Rocko's Modern Life (r.i.p.), Ahhh! Real Monsters (r.i.p.), and Ren & Stimpy (r.i.p.) should come back to Nickelodeon. I miss them and I really want them to come back.

Anyway, Doug gets a 10/10
