** Not helped at all by what immediately follows. At first, we're led to assume that she'll change her mind and realize she's misjudged Doug. But nope, she's ''still'' convinced he's a rotten little troublemaker...she just thinks he's a rotten little troublemaker with a HiddenHeartOfGold. Despite ultimately warming up to him, the fact that she still thinks Doug's bad and Roger's good ends up cementing her as an irredeemably HorribleJudgeOfCharacter to the point that even Doug decides that there's no possible way to get her to see reason. The only consolation is that [[LaserGuidedKarma Roger gets some karmic retribution in the end]].

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: A game based on the Disney show was released for GameBoyColor, and featured Doug and Porkchop searching for Patti while wandering around Bluffington and doing tasks for various characters (collecting stuff to beam to aliens for the Sleech brothers or running errands for Judy, for example). Unfortunately, the whole game was an extremely dull fetch-quest, and the only action - minigames featuring Quailman - left a lot to be desired.

*** Another Meta Example: WordOfGod claims Doug and Patti never became a couple. Fans undoubtedly ignored this.

** In one Nick episode, Patty worries she got her hair cut too short. (Actually, it really looks no different, so it's essentially an InformedFlaw.) Regardless, fast-forward to the Disney years and... well, Patty didn't seem to mind her short hair then.

** 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.

** Connie. While she was a bit thicker than the other girls in the Nick series, she wasn't the "wide load" she was hyped up to be. Averted in the Disney series.

** The [[VerySpecialEpisode eating-disorder episode]], particularly after Patti [[CompressedVice (for some damn reason)]] goes off the deep end.


Added DiffLines:

** Similarly, the Sleeches building [[EpicFail (what they think is)]] a DeathRay in their backyard, [[JustThinkOfThePotential even for a good cause]], would probably not have gone over as well had it aired in 2001 or later. ([[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taylor_Wilson Then again...]])

** If we go by ChadRocco... Connie Benge is this. There are even fans who are aware of the sad WordOfGod info that want to ship Connie with Doug, helps she hinted having a crush on him in the Nickelodeon series.
*** Ned Cauphee and Boomer Bledsoe have fans and art on Deviantart and tumblr!



** Every interaction with Doug and Patti would be seen as this when you remember in 2016 WordOfGod announced the two never became a couple.



** The first episode involved a monster hunt in this case the Nematode/Neematoad of Stinsen's Pond... in the Disney series and movie there really is a monster in Lucky Duck Lake.



*** Another Meta Example: WordOfGod claims Doug and Patti never became a couple.



* ToyShip: Doug and Patti, both in sixth grade at the start of the series and only just finished seventh grade in the final episode.

** Played with in an episode about Doug himself: He comes back after a couple weeks eating junk food at his grandmother's and realizes he's gained a good amount of weight. He slims down to his previous weight to avoid embarrassment at an upcoming pool party with his friends, only to still see himself as pudgy. Fortunately Judy informs him that's how he's always looked and to not worry about it. As it turns out, everyone else at the party has similar concerns about how they look in swimsuits, so initially ''nobody'' has any fun until Doug breaks the ice!

** In this same episode Skeeter has the [[HollywoodThin opposite concern]], worrying that he's too ''skinny'' to be seen at the pool party and gorging himself with creme-filled donuts, only to still see himself as too skinny on the day of the party.



** 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.

** ''Doug's Christmas Story''.

** ''Doug's Christmas Story''. Especially the scene in which Doug imagines that Porkchop will be euthanized for biting Beebe and pictures having to visit his dog's grave. Doug wasn't the only one in tears at that point in the show.


Added DiffLines:

** ''Doug Says Goodbye'': Doug and Skeeter's farewell/exchange of gifts the night before Skeeter is to "move," and the next morning Doug seeing the Valentine family car driving away and thinking he missed saying goodbye to his best friend, and then heading home in a deep funk only to run into... [[spoiler: Skeeter himself, as it turns out he was only moving his ''living quarters'' into the basement]].
** ''Doug on the Trail'': Played for laughs, but the scene in which Doug, Skeeter and Porkchop believe Mr. Dink has been eaten by a bear and start mourning the loss of their best adult friend (Skeeter even sobs aloud) is still rather touching.
