It was an animated series originally aired from August 11, 1991 to June 26, 1999; it was created by Jim Jinkins and produced by Jumbo Pictures for the Nickelodeon network, as the first of their successful line of Nicktoons (1991-1994). Later on, the series was then produced for Disney for airing on ABC (1996-1999).

It had 117 episodes, 52 episodes and 4 seasons on Nickelodeon featuring two 11-minute stories with a commercial break in between; while the Disney's version had 65 episodes and 3 seasons featuring a single story spanning the length of each episode with a duration of 22 minutes divided into three segments. Disney also produced a feature film called Doug's 1st Movie.

It was centered on Doug Funnie and his best friend Skeeter, together they got into all kind of adventures in the fictional town of Bluffington. Alongside Doug's dog Porkchop, the trio got into all kind of trouble.

The story followed the journal entries of Doug, who used to write about his daily misadventures with Porkchop and Skeeter, and the other characters of the story.

After moving with the Disney family, being re-released as The Brand Spanking New! Doug, and later Disney’s Doug, the show featured many noticeable changes, including the format, and was far less popular with old audiences.

This is another animated show that featured a pure style of the 90s, in which classic superheroes were replaced by family or children characters.
