* SympathyForTheDevil: When Mr Bone's nephew, Percy, starts picking on Roger, it is at first seen as just desserts. Then Percy's bullying becomes more sadistic, culminating in Roger begging Doug to protect him. Despite being Roger's favourite victim, even he thinks it has gone too far, and tries to get Percy to stop.

* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Roger seems like a tough guy until he screams... Doug has a pretty high-pitched scream as well, particularly when Billy West voiced him.

One of the first three original Franchise/{{Nicktoons}}, featuring eleven-year-old Doug Funnie and his experiences with his friends, family and community. Creator Jim Jinkins developed the concept and drew inspiration from his own experiences growing up. Beginning with Doug's arrival in Bluffington, he dutifully writes about his every adventure in his journal, which frames almost every episode. In the first episode, he gained a best friend in Mosquito "Skeeter" Valentine, a nemesis and school bully Roger Klotz, and a love interest in the [[{{Tomboy}} tomboyish]] Patti Mayonnaise. His dog Porkchop frequently steals the show with his antics, not unlike [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Snoopy]]. Many other colourful characters (both literally and figuratively) were featured.

After its initial run, the show was bought and {{Retool}}ed by Disney into ''[[TheNewAdventures Brand Spanking New Doug]]'' (or ''Disney's Doug'' as it was later branded during the ''Main/OneSaturdayMorning'' era). It wound up changing a few things from the Nickelodeon version (the first episode even addresses this with the new changes of Doug's life) with many characters getting new looks and various supporting characters changing jobs and roles. Despite the changes, it was still a continuation of the original series, and ended up with a longer run than the original. Like the Nickelodeon version, it also concluded with a GrandFinale (something ''very'' few Disney cartoons have managed).

* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Doug's favorite rock band was named The Beets in homage to The Beatles, who even split up much later in the shows run. They also had an Creator/ArnoldSchwarzenegger parody (Ronald Weisenheimer). Mr. Bone is clearly based on Don Knotts.
