** Mr. Dink is middle-class, just like Doug's family, but he has enough money to buy whatever he wants. So his favorite things are "very expensive".

* {{Bowdlerise}}: In 2015, Disney briefly released their Christmas episode, along with the Christmas specials of their other '90s cartoons, on On-Demand services. With that, they cut part of the scene where Doug and his father finally have TheTalk, in which Doug outright utters the word ''sex''.

* AmbiguousDisorder: As outlined by [[http://www.cracked.com/article_20090_6-creepy-things-you-never-noticed-about-famous-kids-cartoons.html this article]] on Cracked, it is a strong possibility that Doug has schizophrenia.

This show breaks away from the borderline-NegativeContinuity of other Creator/{{Nickelodeon}} shows, even getting a GrandFinale when the network prized being able to not pay attention to airing order.

* FunnyForeigner: Fentruck's occasional malapropisms due to not being a native English speaker. However, he's otherwise portrayed as not being that different from his Bluffington-native classmates - he even finds Mrs. Wingo's class's attempts to welcome him with a traditional Yakestonesian greeting amusing, as the people of his country are now as modern as everywhere else. This was a clever way to avoid cultural stereotyping and possible xenophobia.
* GangOfBullies: Roger is often seen with fellow delinquents Willie, Ned and Boomer.
* GeniusDitz: Skeeter's revealed to be this in one episode, though it was hidden because he's BookDumb. The only reason they found out was because Skeeter didn't realize the IQ test was a test; he mentions how he panics with tests. It took Doug the entire episode to accept it, reluctantly. Skeeter eventually made it onto a trivia bowl team in the Disney version, but he choked when asked a question.

Boomer. However, they don't blindly follow Roger's lead in ''everything''; see NoHonorAmongThieves.

Skeeter eventually made it onto a trivia bowl team in the Disney version, but he choked when asked a question. He is arguably less of this in the Disney series where he's portrayed as one of Ms. Kristal's best students (when Ms. Kristal is fired, he's the only one who cares enough to circulate a petition to try to get her back).

* TokenMinority: Refreshingly averted in this series due to its AmazingTechnicolorPopulation. Also, having Patti Mayonnaise speak in a Southern accent has been noted by some as a daring move, although Patti displays no SouthernBelle tropes and just happens to be a "normal" girl who speaks with a drawl.

Also, having Patti Mayonnaise speak in a Southern accent has been noted by some as a daring move, although Patti displays no SouthernBelle tropes and just happens to be a "normal" girl who speaks with a drawl.

** According to his quote in "Not Just Cartoons: Nicktoons!", Jinkins did this deliberately as a way to push racial equality.

** According to his quote in "Not Just Cartoons: Nicktoons!", Jinkins did this deliberately as a way to push racial equality. David Campbell added in "Slimed!" that the idea was to make sure the series could be appreciated by anyone and everyone who watched regardless of their race, ethnicity, station in life etc.

* AmbigulouslyChristian: Although never shown explicitly in the series, Jim Jinkins has mentioned in interviews that the Funnie family are churchgoers, and that one would have to look for subtle hints such as the way they're dressed on Sunday afternoons (i.e. Phil in a dress shirt but loosened up) to notice this. This is another way in which the series reflects the childhood of its creators, as both Jinkins and David Campbell were raised Christian. The pair and their production company would later create a more explicitly Christian animated series titled ''Hoop Dogz''.
