Trivia

Sometimes, Doug would write up comic books of himself when he "daydreams". One of them is Quail Man, though not a reference to any pre-existing comic book hero, but Quail Man wears his underwear over his pants, poking fun at most heroes in comic books that have an "underwear" shape design on their costumes.

User Reviews

one of my favorite cartoons on Nickelodeon
17 July 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I used to watch it all the time when it would come on Snick back in 1993-1994. It's about a kid named Doug Funnie, who moves with his family to Bluffington. Doug immediately feels uncomfortable in this new town, that is until he meets Skeeter Valentine who shows him around and introduces him to some pretty interesting people. There is the usual romantic interest (Patty Mayonnaise) and the bully (Roger Klotz).

This is indeed one of my favorite cartoons on Nickelodeon. It's a shame though that it barely comes on the air anymore now that idiotic crap like Spongebob Squarepants, Rocket Power, and The Wild Thornbarry's is taking over what was once a decent lineup of entertaining cartoons and shows.

Anyway, I give Doug a 10/10.
