The appearances of Doug an Pork Chop are based on animated characters in a commercial for the USA Network.
In the commercial, a guy who looks like Doug is completing a bank of TV's in the shape of the United States. He puts the last one on with a grunt of effort. Then his dog hits the remote, and "USA Network" appears on the monitors. The dog gets very excited and runs into the next screen, where he points out whatever the network's slogan was at the time. The dog is a lot smaller and differently proportioned than Pork Chop, but the similarities to Doug's appearance are undeniable. See more »

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.
