* HePannedItNowItSucks: The show is a frequent target of WebOriginal/TheNostalgiaCritic, mostly because Creator/DougWalker was constantly bullied as a kid by his classmates calling him Doug Funnie (the Critic just thinks it's boring), giving many young NC fans a very unfavorable first impression of it.

* ReviewsAreTheGospel: The show is a frequent target of WebOriginal/TheNostalgiaCritic, mostly because Creator/DougWalker was constantly bullied as a kid by his classmates calling him Doug Funnie (the Critic just thinks it's too dull), resulting in the show picking up a newer reputation for being boring.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: ''Doug'' was one of the very first SliceOfLife animated shows, and was influential enough to inspire several other shows of it's kind over the coming decades to the point that it's now seen as achingly squeaky-clean. Doug "[[WebOriginal/TheNostalgiaCritic Nostalgia Critic]]" Walker's personal disdain for it's low-key tone, and resentment of all of the name-calling it earned him as a child, has earned it plenty of non-fans.

** "Doug's On First" has two of equal importance: youth sports is for the enjoyment of the players, not the egos of their parents, and parents shouldn't try to make their children be something they clearly aren't.

* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: ''Doug'' was one of the very first SliceOfLife animated shows, and was very influential. However, this has caused ''many'' shows to use the exact same format, making most of the tropes ''Doug'' made popular in the 1990s become cliche now. Creator/DougWalker, aka The Nostalgia Critic's review of this show certainly didn't help.

** In one episode Doug comes home from a summer stay with Grandma and all the junk food made him quite hefty. He learns an end-of-the-summer pool party is being held by Beebe in two weeks, and he kills himself to lose weight for the party. Once he hits his normal weight, he realizes he's always been a little heavy and that depresses him. But going to the party he sees no one was having fun because ''everyone'' had some form of body image issues and didn't want to be seen in their bathing suit, even the slim and athletic Patty. So discarding his self-conscious feelings, he threw off his shirt and jumped in, inspiring everyone to do the same.

** ''Disney's Doug''. It caused the fanbase to break into separate camps (not counting the ones who have seen one version, but not the other): the ones who loved the Nickelodeon version and despised Disney's version, the ones who thought Disney's version was okay but preferred Nickelodeon's version, and the ones who thought the Disney version was no different than the Nickelodeon version and actually admit to liking both.
