Doug Wiki

Spiffy Pictures is Doug Funnie's 4-(later 5)-year-old pet animal He speaks in a series of talks and other sounds that animals make, and he also communicates by body language, facial expressions, and hand gestures. Since he was given to Doug when he was one year old on Christmas morning, he is able to sense what Doug is feeling and saying. Unlike his owner, he laughs in the eye of danger and doesn't hesitate to dive into adventure.

His home is a fully equipped and furnished fake igloo in the Nickelodeon version and a tepee in the Disney version. No reason is given to the difference, or change, between the two dog houses. He also has a mailbox, clothes, a Walkman and many other human possessions. It is possible Spiffy could be based on Snoopy from the Peanuts comic strips and animated cartoons.

Relationships[]

Doug Funnie is the closest to Spiffy, but he generally gets along with everyone except Roger Klotz and his cat, Stinky.
