"Doug's Minor Catastrophe" is the 20th episode of Doug in the Disney era. It first aired on January 25, 1997, on ABC.
The new snack fad "Nic Nacs" is targeted at adults and kids are going crazy to try some. It soon turns into a negative snack that kids are not supposed to have, which just makes all of Doug's friends wanting some. Through Doug's research for an article for the school paper, he discovers that the snack has an unpleasant and temporary side effect. Also, Mr. Dink quits his job at Bluffco and tries to write his own book. Doug later reminds Guy that eating "Nic Nacs" will make Guy's mouth freeze and rejoins Skeeter and Patti.
