** It's all very complicated company politics. Jumbo Pictures first managed to sell some of their ideas to Viacom and become a partner, subsequently getting on Viacom's payroll. Shortly after the wrapping up of Season 4, Viacom shafted them. Conveniently, right after Viacom gave them the boot, Disney came up to them and sweet-talked them. They cut off all ties with Viacom and then managed to partner up with Disney instead, getting on Disney's payroll. Which after 4 seasons and a movie, ended in another dispute because Disney used ''Doug'' and ''PBAndJOtter'' characters in a multi-network music video project that Jim Jinkins did not want the characters to be participating in due to his own beliefs. They then broke up their ties with Disney, changed the company name to Cartoon Pizza, and learned the hard way the downsides of partnering up with a major television network.

** 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 (Jumbo and Nick were already on sour terms at that point) before they had a chance to [[{{Uncancelled}} uncancel]] it.

** The Disney series: Compared to the Nick version, the Disney version is more challenging to come across (legally). The show was only released on VHS, it has been out of print since then, and there's only a handful of episodes online. Heck, ''TheMovie'' never saw a DVD release until recent years as a Disney Movie Club-exclusive (although it's the Creator/ToonDisney cut), which is no longer available as of 2016. It's still ''available'' for video rental/purchase on Amazon, if you want to view the original version of it in this day and age. According to Jim Jinkins, Disney, which continues to hold the rights to ''Doug'' to this day, has not expressed interest in re-releasing or reviving the franchise; hence the Disney series remains largely lost to the mists of time while the Nickelodeon series continues to win over new fans.

** Jinkins was somewhat pudgy as a child, thus no surprise that he gave Doug something of a pot belly and created a plus-sized character in Connie. Also, although he never had a dog, "Porkchop" was his childhood nickname because of his physique.

* DubNameChange: In the French dub, Doug's family name is changed from Funnie to Fripon, and Skeeter is called Stique. In Spanish, several other name changes were made, including Funnie to Narinas, Skeeter to Tito Valentino, Roger to Rufo, Connie to Conchita, Chalky to Pepe, and so on (Porkchop's name was simply translated into Spanish as "Chuletas"). Patti Mayonnaise, however, keeps her name in both versions. The Japanese dub retains the American names albeit pronounced in Engrish.

The Beets are Los Idos in Spanish (which is apparently the name of a real-life band) and the title of their signature song "Killer Tofu" translates as "Universal Potato." Patti Mayonnaise, however, keeps her name in both versions. The Japanese dub retains the American names albeit pronounced in Engrish.

** In an interesting coincidence, Jinkins got Constance Shulman to portray Patti's voice after seeing the actress in a commercial for Kraft mayonnaise. However, this was not the origin of Patti's last name, as the character was already named Patti Mayonnaise (after Pam Mayo, another childhood crush of Jinkins').

In addition, Jinkins' wife, an aerobics teacher, was already acquainted with Shulman as the actress was one of her students.

* MeaningfulName: Jim Jinkins decided he wanted Constance Shulman for the voice of Patti Mayonnaise after seeing her in a TV commercial. The product? Mayonnaise, of course (Kraft).
