Doug and his friends find a "monster" living in the woods outside their town, but when they find the monster is actually kind of nice, they find themselves hunted by "bad guys" who want the monster. In addition, Doug has to compete for the attention of Patti Mayonnaise with a snobby 8th grader, Guy Graham. Will Doug get to take Patti to the Valentine's Day dance? Written by

Originally planned as a direct-to-video release under the working title, "The First Doug Movie...EVER!", however, based on the box office success of The Rugrats Movie (1998), Disney decided it was best to give the film a theatrical release. See more »
When Doug finds the newspaper article stating that the monster was destroyed, he mentions that it is 'next week's paper' but starts to feel sad because he thinks Herman's dead, despite the fact that he clearly stated it was to be 'next week's paper'. See more »
I looked up this movie on Wikipedia a few weeks ago to see what it was about. When I read the plot summary, I honestly thought that somebody had trolled the page and typed in the weirdest s*** they could think of. Then, after checking IMDb's plot summary, I realized that it was ACTUALLY ABOUT A FRIENDLY MONSTER NAMED HERMAN MELVILLE.
And the funny thing about this: I actually DID see this in theaters when it came out (back in '99, which made me 9 years old at the time), but I literally had NO memory of this movie. I remember everything else I've ever seen in theaters, to some degree, but not this one.
The fact that this movie was SO ridiculous, yet SOOOOO forgettable is a testament to its quality. I was a fan of the show too (when it was on Nickelodeon, I hated what Disney did to it).
Btw, "Doug's FIRST Movie"? Obviously, that title isn't descriptive enough; should've put "and only" somewhere in that title...
