A poster above Doug's bed shown prominently in many episodes features a sinking ship with the phrase "LOOSE LIPS..." emblazoned above the ship. This is actually a famous World War II-era propaganda poster, depicting a sinking ship with the words "LOOSE LIPS SINK SHIPS" discouraging civilians from carelessly talking about friends or relatives fighting abroad, as supporters of the enemy could overhear conversations and relay any useful information from the conversation, such as troop position and formation, to the enemy's advantage.

She never said anything about the pimple. Matter of fact, no one did. I guess it just goes to show you: sometimes things don't turn out as bad as you think they will. But sometimes they turn out a lot worse. But, then again, sometimes they turn out sorta OK, but kinda bad. Well, anyways, the point is, it's not what's on your nose that counts... it's what's inside. N-no, wait. I didn't mean that.

Nickelodeon's saga of adolescent and suburban angst has had a bumpy ride, but overall the quality is pretty good. An interesting concept was the idea of colouring characters' skin to colours corresponding to their personalities. What truly made the series shine, however, was the voice acting.
Billy "Ren and Stimpy" West played Doug, Roger and several minor characters. He didn't go for laughs, choosing to play Doug down and Roger up. It is also impressive to hear him have a conversation with himself.
The award, however, should go to the invaluable Fred Newman. He was Porkchop's every bark and growl, Skeeter's eccentric dither, and Mr. Dink's lisp and chuckle. Moreover, he was responsible for composing the music and sound effects. All that scat, rap, vocals, acapella vocal sounds are all him. Listen next time and you'll here what a genius this man is.
Finally, a word on Doug Preis as Mr. Bone. Am I the only one who thought it was Don Knotts?
