* MinorWithFakeID: Roger uses an incredibly fake ID to buy Nic-Naks, a thinly veiled stand-in for cigarettes (but closer to tobacco sticks), which he then sells to the other kids, after convincing the principal to hold an assembly on that Nic-Naks are bad -- but without explaining how or why they're bad -- to make them ForbiddenFruit and drive up sales.

* NeverBareHeaded: In "Doug's Lucky Hat", when Doug is fully convinced that his hat is lucky, he vows never to take it off, even while he's sleeping, showering, and getting his haircut (perplexing his barber Joe Sweeney). This lasts up until Roger steals the hat to try out its luck.

* AnAesop: Most (if not all) of the episodes had one. The show got E/I branding ("Illuminating Television", as ABC called it) during the Disney run.

* AnAesop: Most (if not all) of the episodes had one. The writers were even expected to write the intended moral of the episode at the top of each outline. The show got E/I branding ("Illuminating Television", as ABC called it) during the Disney run.

* TimeForPlanB: In the side plot of the "Brand Spankin' New" era episode "Doug's Bloody Buddy", Connie, who has developed a habit of creating baseless rumors, claims that a spy from Bloatsburg could be hiding in their band class. The band leader responds by developing "Plan B", eventually cancelling band practice to work on it. It culminates in [[spoiler:a [[StealthPun bee]] being released to distract the band leader's Bloatsburg rival from conducting]].

Added DiffLines:

* CouchGag: Each episode's title card would always vary at the end. In the Nickelodeon series, there were different recurring animations at the end of the title sequence that involve the screen going black in some way (usually Doug or Porkchop turning the light off.) The Disney series then made it so each episode's title card was unique to the episode, usually involving something related to the plot.


Added DiffLines:

* SecondPersonAttack: One of the episode title card CouchGags in the Nickelodeon series had Porkchop hurl the black paint he used to write the episode's title with at the camera, turning the frame black. Usually it made an appropriately wet, sludgy sound, but in some second-season episodes, it made a simpler "sssss" sound effect.

* MaybeMagicMaybeMundane: The title object in "Doug's Lucky Hat" lands at Doug's feet on a windy day. When he puts it on, he appears to become a good luck magnet as he finds the only Sky Davis trading card he doesn't already have, wins a KBLUF radio phone-in contest, has his Smash Adams X-ray specs rescued from the laundry by his mother, and tracks down Patti's wayward guinea pig Hamlet. Skeeter believes the hat really is lucky, but Doug is embarrassed to think so, especially when it becomes clear that Patti is dubious about the idea; Roger believes it, though, and forcibly "borrows" it - and actually passes a biology test (with a D-) while wearing it. Patti, however, tells Doug that while the hat may have made him feel like a winner, he's a winner with or without it. Whether or not the hat really is lucky is left to the viewer to decide.

** Mr. Bone has a rather large nephew named Percy Femur, large enough to effectively bully Roger, which he does. The femur, (the thigh bone) is the largest bone in the human body.

** Patti's mother died in a car accident. This actually makes her the first character from a Nicktoon with a dead parent- Chuckie's mom being dead on ''WesternAnimation/{{Rugrats}}'' wasn't confirmed until after ''Doug'' had left for ABC and during the time ''Doug'' was on Nickelodeon, the writers of ''Rugrats'' were keeping where she was ambiguous.
