Dee Bradley Baker,
Disney's Doug follows 12 1/2 year old Doug Funnie in his town of Bluffington. With his best human friend Skeeter Valentine and best non-human friend (also his dog) Porkchop, they have great adventures! Doug is secretly in love with Patti Mayonnaise but gets bullied by Roger Klotz. Sometimes Doug imagines he is Quailman, a superhero from the planet Bob to help him solve problems. Written by
This cartoon is a continuation from the fan favorite Doug from the 90s. Only difference is it's produced by Disney and not Nick.
Takes place a year after the events in the first series. Where Doug and his friends enter Junior High. With a load of changes that give Bluffington a total twist. We see some familiar faces along with Doug, as well as some new ones. Not to mention the usual lifestyle, problems, and activities involved in each episode like the in the previous series.
Designed, and animated by the same company: Jumbo. Voiced by the same actors except for Billy West who didn't want to be part of it. Same multi color characters. But it all feels entirely different from the cartoon I knew from the early 90s.
A lot of other fans don't compare this to being equal to the original. Which I agree too, as the Disney Doug contains no charm or brilliants what-so-ever. most of the episodes are good to watch, but like 3/4's of them are very uninteresting, out of character, misleading, poorly written, as well as unoriginal.
You might ask why in the word a great cartoon like Doug could receive a less-worthy sequel. For me it could either be A. There's no Honker Burger(which was bought out in this series under the name of the cheesy French restaurant), B. Doug involved in rather stupid situations than before, C. Adding Dirtbike as the new member of the Funny family rather pointless, or D. Having the whole series under the name of Disney.
Whatever the real reason is, Disney's Doug fails to be a fan favorite for most of the other Doug fans. I'm perfectly fine watching the original countless times as I find that one more appealing than this. If you hate this second series, then stay away from the movie. See my review on that one for more detail.
