* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: While the Nick series has [=DVDs=] on Amazon, there's the good chance of playback errors, and two episodes are missing from season four because of "technical difficulties". However, there are torrents available of all four seasons of the Nick series. Played completely straight with the Disney series, with the videos out of print and only a handful of episodes online. Heck, ''TheMovie'' hasn't even been released on [=DVD=] (though it is available for video rental/purchase on Amazon).
** iTunes has all four seasons, and the two episodes missing from the Season 4 DVD have been reinstated.
*** The movie ''was'' released on [=VideoCD=] in many second world countries. The catch? '''''Was'''''. It's out of print.
*** [[SubvertedTrope Update]]: The film was recently released to DVD as a [[https://disneymovieclub.go.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/AcquisitionProductDetailView?langId=-1&storeId=10001&catalogId=10051&categoryId=5024503&view=Animated&viewAll=true¤tPage=1&URL=AcquisitionBrowseView&catentryId=15607 Disney Movie Club-exclusive.]] Problem: it only has the ToonDisney cut, so VHS is the only (legal) method of viewing the original version in this day and age.
*** [[SubvertedTrope Another Update]]: A release of the [[http://www.amazon.com/Doug-Complete-Nickelodeon-Billy-West/dp/B00LBHOCHS/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1424918703&sr=8-1&keywords=doug Complete Nickelodeon Series]] was released on Amazon in June 2014, including [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin every]] [[CaptainObvious Nickelodeon episode]] including the two segments missing from the Season 4 set.

* TheOtherDarrin: Thomas [=McHugh=] and Chris Phillips replaced Creator/BillyWest (who didn't want to be part of the Disney variation of ''Doug'') as Doug and Roger's voices, respectively, in the Disney series. This was [[LampshadeHanging made note of]] with Doug in its first episode.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The original ''Doug'' product was going to be a children's book, ''Doug Gets a New Pair of Shoes'', until the creator found out that Nickelodeon was looking for cartoonists for new original cartoons (during this time, all of Nickelodeon's cartoons were either imported from other countries [mostly from continental Europe, Japan, or Canada] or part of a syndication package [the ''WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes'' shorts and the UPA cartoons of the 1950s]), and decided to turn it into a cartoon series. The book ended up serving as the episode ''Doug's Cool Shoes'' in season one.
** Roger was also going to be a rival to Doug for Doug's love interest, Patti. This was scrapped, and the role was taken by Guy once the show was switched over to Disney.
** The movie was also going to be a DirectToVideo release, but Disney decided put it into theaters due to the success of ''WesternAnimation/TheRugratsMovie''. Critically, it didn't work. In box office numbers, it grossed much less than ''Rugrats'', but it was still a huge profit for Disney.
** The movie was also going to be made by 20th Century Fox in 1993, along with movies for ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheRenAndStimpyShow''. Nick's contract fell through before they could make a movie deal. So once Viacom (Nick's company) bought Paramount, ''Rugrats'' got its movie, Disney ended up making ''Doug's'' movie, and ''Ren and Stimpy'' never got a movie. It's unknown whether Fox's version of ''Doug's 1st Movie'' would've been the same movie as it became.
** Also, the movie was originally going to be called ''The First Doug Movie Ever'', but was later retitled to ''Doug's 1st Movie''.
*** Much like Rugrats, Doug's popularity and ratings really soared when it went into daytime syndication. But Disney bought the rights to the show and sweet-talked Jumbo Pictures into dumping Nickelodeon (note: Jumbo and Nick are already on sour terms at that point) before Nickelodeon had a chance to [[{{Uncancelled}} uncancel]] it.
