Doug stars 11 1/2-year-old 6th grader Doug Funnie, who had moved from Bloatsburg with his family to Bluffington. It deals with the life and imagination of titular character, grade-schooler and diarist Doug Funnie, his dog Porkchop, and good friends Skeeter Valentine and Patti Mayonnaise.
In "Doug Bags a Neematoad", Doug Funnie and his family (Phil, Theda and sister Judy), come to a new town called Bluffington after moving away from their former residence in Bloatsburg. There he meets his future best friends Skeeter Valentine and Patti Mayonnaise, town bully Roger Klotz and rich girl Beebe Bluff, and his new life in a new town begins.
