Doug (unofficially referred to as Nickelodeon's Doug only on this wiki) is an American animated sitcom that was created by Jim Jinkins and produced by Jumbo Pictures (alongside the France-based animation studio) for the Nickelodeon network, as the first of their successful line of Nicktoons.

Doug premiered on Nickelodeon on August 11, 1991 alongside the other two original Nicktoons Rugrats and Ren and Stimpy. New episodes aired until January 2, 1994 and in reruns until 2002.

From 1996 to 1999, the series was then produced by Disney for airing on ABC's One Saturday Morning block, which included a theatrical movie.

Plot

The series centers on 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 pet dog Porkchop, and good friends Skeeter Valentine and Patti Mayonnaise.

In the series premiere, 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.
