* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The entire show is this due to the fact that it is a narrative of events through the eyes of one kid writing about these events into his journal. As a result, his opinions on a person will affect how they are portrayed in each episode.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: Doug's Quailman fantasy in ''Doug's 1st Movie''. Then again, it's a ''Doug'' movie, and it wouldn't be complete without Quailman.

* BrokenBase: ''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.

* DesignatedVillain: Often Guy from Disney's ''Doug''. While he may be egotistical, Guy's actually a fairly nice...well, guy, it's Doug's feelings for Patti and chronic insecurity that lead him to see Guy as a jerk. Subverted in the movie, where he actually ''is'' flat-out antagonistic towards the group.

* MisBlamed: There are a number of fans who whine about Disney's changes to the series. Actually, the only thing Disney did was buy the rights to the series (and Jumbo Pictures, the show's production company), produce it, and air it on ABC. Pretty much everyone who worked on the Nick series worked on Disney's series as well.

Added DiffLines:

* FandomBerserkButton: You may get a pass if you say that you like both the Nickelodeon and Disney iterations of the series equally or say that Disney's Doug was good in its own right. It's when you say that you think the Disney's ''Doug'' was better than Nickelodeon's ''Doug'' that you get slapped upside the head by the fanbase.

** In the pilot episode, "Doug Can't Dance", one of the kids at the costume party is dressed like MickeyMouse. Fast forward a few years, and the mouse owns ''Doug''.

Added DiffLines:

**Some fans criticize the Disney episodes for "replacing all the voice actors". Only Billy West's characters (Doug and Roger) were replaced; everyone else kept their voice (however in some international dubs; all or almost all of the voices were replaced).

* BrokenAesop: The episode in which Doug ends up in a fight with Larry. The message is of course that violence isn't the way to solve problems. Except Larry, who was clearly in a rage over being bullied, started the fight with Doug, even though he had nothing to do with it. Doug knocking Larry out should have been called self defense since Larry made the first swing, and hit Doug first.

* CanonSue: Doug deliberately made Patti's third ''[[ShowWithinAShow Quailman]]'' incarnation, Supersport, one.
** Silver Skeeter also started out as one, to the point where Doug and Skeeter end up fighting over Skeeter making his self-insert too powerful.

** Female version: In "Doug's a Big Fat Liar", Patty goes to a dance with "Melvin", really Judy in drag. Seems innocent enough, but when the whole ruse is revealed, Patty isn't even upset! She even says "Melvin" is the best dancer at the hoedown and continues to dance with Judy throughout the rest of the episode. Also, they share Judy's room in an episode of the Disney series.
