Douglas Yancey "Doug" Funnie.

Voiced by Billy West (Nickelodeon), Thomas McHugh (Disney), Masako Nozawa (Japanese dub)


  • Adorably Precocious Child
  • Adorkable: Let's just say this: he is so socially akward to the nth degree that makes him so cute!
    • And when Patti's around, expect this to be turned Up to Eleven.
  • Badass Adorkable: In his Quailman fantasies. He can be this outside his fantasies whenever he pulls a Moment of Awesome.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: He doesn't always hold on his emotions and lets others know when enough is enough.
  • Book Dumb
  • Born Lucky: Everything works out for him. Sometimes even better than he expected it to!
  • A Boy and His Semi-Anthropomorphic dog
  • Break the Cutie: During the Nickelodeon Christmas special.
  • Butt Monkey: Is often the subject of jokes and mockery from Roger.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Goes the entire series without being able to reveal his feelings towards Patti...until Patti asks Doug to go on a "date-date" with her, revealing her feelings.
  • Captain's Log: His journal.
  • Character Development: He becomes less shy in the Disney series and gets more of a backbone as the series goes on.
  • Charlie Brown Baldness: Made odder by the fact that he needed to get a haircut in one episode, and in another episode, worried that he was going bald. However, most fanart and the live stage show made him a brunette.
  • Clear My Name: Doug's had a few incidents where he's been framed for something he didn't do and tried to figure out how to fix it. A lot of times, though, something else went and fixed it for him.
  • Clear Their Name: "Doug's Christmas Carol" and trying to save Porkchop from being put down.
  • Corrupt the Cutie: Doug's Big Comeback from the Disney series.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Occasionally towards Roger and Judy.
  • Embarrassing Middle Name: Yancey
  • The Everyman
  • Even Doug Has Standards: Doug doesn't like being bullied by anyone including by Bone and Roger, but have someone, like the latter, getting it in returns for too long is taking it too far for him.
  • Extreme Doormat: Has shades of this.
  • The Hero
  • I Have This Friend: It's not me!
  • Jerkass Ball: While normally a Nice Guy, a few episodes have Doug act more insensitive than usual; though he ends up easing up at the end of the episode.
    • A slight exception would be in "Doug's Brainy Buddy." While he does come to accept Skeeter's intelligence by the episode's end, the Disney episodes make it clear that he's still quite bothered by it.
  • The Klutz: At times.
  • Limited Wardrobe: Well, actually, this applies to all the characters, but Doug lampshaded it by showing everyone else that his wardrobe is filled with multiple identical sets of his outfit.
  • Mr. Imagination: His fantasies often play into the show.
  • Naïve Newcomer
  • Nice Guy: Most of the time.
  • Ridiculously Average Guy: He's not really Book Dumb, but also not a straight-A student, he's not very handsome, but not ugly (he's cute, though), he's not much of an athlete, but not terrible in athletics. He even described himself as being "painfully average".
    • It culminates in the second-to-last season where finds out that his permanent record just says "average" in all the fields.
    • He does have some areas where he excels though, like the arts (it must run in the family), as he's shown to be skilled in writing, drawing, and music.
  • Secret Diary: His Journal.
  • Shrinking Violet: Sometimes.
  • The Southpaw: Doug in Left Field has Patti realize Doug is left-handed, and has him switch position while batting.
  • Superpowered Alter Ego: Quailman, and his companion Quaildog.
  • Took a Level in Badass: In Doug to the Rescue, he was able to win in a fight against Roger... without lifitng a finger
  • Unlucky Everydude
  • Vocal Evolution: In the "Doug Can't Dance" pilot, his voice was more high-pitched and nasal compared to his voice in every other episodes of the Nick series. Then during season four of the Nick series, his voice started to get lower.

Porkchop

"Voiced" by Fred Newman

Mosquito "Skeeter" Valentine

Voiced by Fred Newman
  • Adorkable
  • Black Best Friend: Word of God states that Skeeter is black.
  • Book Dumb: Subverted. While Skeeter often downplays his intelligence in the Nickelodeon version ("But I'm bad in math! I could be wrong!"), the Disney version reveals that he's actually one of the best students in his class, only earning his first ever F after creating a robot that did literally everything except what it was assigned to do.
    • An episode of the Nickelodeon series has him eligible to attend college, and Doug has to deal with the possibility of losing his best friend.
  • Catchphrase: "Cool, man!"
  • Cloudcuckoolander
  • Genius Ditz: He's kooky, but he once got a perfect score of 1000 on an intelligence test (see "Hidden Depths" below) much to Doug's surprise.
  • Hidden Depths: After scoring 1000 on the aforementioned intelligence test, he gradually reveals to Doug that, in spite of his love of comic books and rock music, he's actually quite well read.
  • Improbably High IQ: There is no such thing as a "perfect" IQ of 1,000
  • Keet
  • The Lancer
  • Only Known by Their Nickname: It's rare that anyone calls him by his name, even his parents and the school calls him Skeeter. In the pilot, he explained it was a family name.
  • Verbal Tic: "Honk honk!"
  • Vocal Evolution: His voice was more nasal earlier on.
  • Who Names Their Kid Mosquito: Why was he given that name isn't known?

Patti Mayonnaise

Voiced by Constance Shulman

Roger Klotz

Voiced by Billy West (Nickelodeon), Chris Phillips (Disney)
  • Alpha Bastard
  • Anti-Role Model: Was used as this in the Nick series, less so in the Disney series.
  • The Bully: Though he relies on being obnoxious rather than hurting others.
  • Butt Monkey: When he's not on the giving end, he's on the receiving end of constant Laser-Guided Karma.
  • Catchphrase: Joeycookamonga! At least this was it in the Disney version, although, he DID say it in "Doug's in the Money" for the first time and only time in the Nick series. Another one that came up more often was "Sayonara, suckers!"
  • Character Development: Roger goes from being the stereotypical bully to a Sixth Ranger member of Doug's group.
  • Daddy Didn't Show: Roger wanted his father to come to a wheelbarrow race, but his Dad never bothered to show up.
  • Disappeared Dad: His parents are divorced. The father supposedly lives in nearby Bloatsburg but never comes to visit (and Mr. Klotz moved out when Roger was just a baby).
  • Evil Laugh
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Roger may be a bully but he often uses verbal rather than physical since any form of the latter is taking it too far, even for him unless he's the one doing it obviously. Same goes if it's a threat.
    • He's forced to think about this when he issued a fight but only to back down after getting freaked about Doug's tactics, which didn't involved a single hit.
  • Freudian Excuse: He sabotages a Father/Son picnic because his own father refused to show up (and it's implied that wasn't an isolated incident).
  • Gang of Bullies: His gang which consists of him, Boomer, Ned, and Willy.
  • Hidden Depths: In "Doug Wears Tights," Roger demonstrates some surprisingly good dance skills. He actually played the Rat King in the town's amateur production of The Nutcracker. Between his dance skills, his painting ability (which was illustrated in the Disney series), and his guitar playing one could say that Roger is a bit of a renaissance man.
  • Jerkass: On most days.
  • Kavorka Man: Believe it or not, but he has a ton of fangirls.
  • Kindhearted Cat Lover: While he falls a little short of "kind-hearted," he certainly loves his cat. In fact, he utterly freaks out when Doug tries to tell him that he might have killed his cat when Stinky was actually pregnant. It was probably the only time where Roger was very tempted toward physical violence.
  • Large Ham
  • Pet the Dog: He's gotten a couple of these moments.
  • Rags to Riches: The backstory on how Roger became rich.
  • Redheaded Bully
  • Rich Bastard: Retooled into a male version of this trope in Disney's Doug. In the original series he was dirt poor and lived in a trailer.
  • Screams Like a Little Girl: A few times, like when he makes Doug say that Mr. Bone wears pink underwear. Doug has him give Mr. Bone a present and he let's out a hilarious screech when Mr. Bone opens it to see pink boxers.
  • Took a Level in Kindness: Straddled the line in the Disney series as he picked on Doug far less often, but when he does he's much more cruel.
    • He's also decidedly nicer to Doug as the Nick series progresses.
  • Troubled, but Cute

Stinky

"Voiced" by Fred Newman

Beebe Bluff

Voiced by the late Alice Playten

Judith Anastasia "Judy" Funnie

Voiced by Becca Lish

Phil and Theda Funnie

Voiced by Doug Preis and Becca Lish respectively

Bud and Tippy Dink

Voiced by Fred Newman and Doris Belack respectively
  • Adults Are Useless: Averted, especially in the Disney series.
  • Catchphrase: "Very Expensive"
  • Deadpan Snarker: Mrs. Dink (in the Nick series).
  • Happily Married: Quite, actually.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: Mr. Dink is at least middle-aged and someone Doug sometimes goes to for help.
  • Meaningful Name: The acronym DINK stands for "Double Income, No Kids" which quite accurately describes the Dinks.
  • Nice Guy: Mr. Dink, to the point where he's actually moved to tears when he learns that Doug and Skeeter have been working to replace the grill they accidentally broke -he's just so touched that they would do that for him.
  • Reasonable Authority Figure: Mrs. Dink when she becomes elected as mayor of Bluffington.

Connie Benge

Voiced by Becca Lish
  • All Girls Want Bad Boys: It was revealed in a 1999 Disney Adventure's comic that Connie has a crush on Roger, though it was previously hinted that she had one on Doug in the Nick series.
  • Ascended Extra: She's given a much bigger role in Disney's Doug.
  • Butt Monkey: Connie is mocked by Roger almost as much as Doug.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Sometimes.
  • The Cutie
  • Fanservice Pack: In the Disney series.
  • Out of Focus: She doesn't have as much focus as other members of Doug's group, Roger included.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: Went away one summer and came back slimmed down, more 'developed' and with a slightly different hairstyle.

Chalky Studebaker

Voiced by Doug Preis
  • The Ace: Deconstructed twice: The first time it's shown the kind of pressure he's under to live up to the example set by his brother who's Always Someone Better, the second time it's shown that for all his skills he's a really lousy artist.
  • The Big Guy
  • Big Man on Campus: Fits Chalky to a T!
  • Foil: Chalky is essentially what Doug often imagines himself to be: the popular jock with good grades rather than the clumsy artist with average grades.
  • The Perfectionist
  • Lovable Jock: Unless he lets his competitiveness get the better of him, he's really nice.

Al and Moo Sleech

Both of them voiced by Eddie Korbich
  • Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Played with. A lot of the kids think their dad's some sort of insane and amoral Mad Scientist that Al and Moo hardly try to deny, and in fact act afraid about any of the kids meeting him. However, when we meet the man he's... a donut maker. Granted he builds his own equipment, but hardly the sort who conducts 'strange experimentations.'
  • Commuting on a Bus: In Disney's Doug, the Sleech twins don't go to the same middle school as the rest of the group but instead go to the Moody School for the Gifted (Judy's school).
  • May-December Romance: Both have crushes on Judy.
  • The Smart Guys

Mayor (later Principal) Bob White

Voiced by Greg Lee
  • Corrupt Politician: He's contributed more problems for the city than solved.
  • Jerkass: He has polluted Bluffington in a campaign to get reelected, spread lies about Porkchop to make him look like a vicious monster, gotten an English teacher fired because she didn't vote for him, and overall does very little to help the citizens.
  • Unknown Rival: For Tippy Dink at least.
  • Verbal Tic / Catch Phrase: "Vote for me!"

Lamarr Bone

Voiced by Doug Preis
  • Berserk Button: Don't imply that he wears pink underwear if you know what's good for you.
  • Dean Bitterman: Although he will loosen up if you push all the right buttons.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Lamar Bone has made himself known, especially towards Doug and company, he's the one person that often enforced the rules on them if denied a chance to explain but he can be overruled by anyone at a higher position than him and one person has that power... Principal Buttsavitch.
    • He also won't put up with students being in fights, that includes Percy Femur... yes, family members are fair game.
  • Jaded Washout: The episode "Doug's Shock Therapy" suggests that, as a kid, he was actually very well liked (though probably not to the extent that his flashback suggests), and that his general nastiness is at least partly due to job dissatisfaction and loneliness in his personal life.
  • Jerkass: Most of the time.
  • Large Ham: His voices is an impression of Don Knotts.
  • Obstructive Bureaucrat
  • Pet the Dog: He often stops fights.
  • Sadist Teacher: At his worst.
  • Stern Teacher: At his best.

William "Bill" Bluff III

Voiced by Doug Preis
  • Big Bad: In The Movie.
    • Just the Movie? What about the episode where his company was marketing Nic-Nacs to children with his knowledge? Or the episode where he tried to kill a dog for saving his kid from falling through the ice (on Christmas)? He definitely is the Big Bad of the the show and arguably the Biggest Jerk.
      • According to the Disney Wiki, Bluff has also done many illegal things such as rig a contest, get government agents to go inside a house without a search warrant, torture, and bribe authorities.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Moreso in the Disney episodes and movie.
  • Heel-Face Turn: Whenever he's in a more villainous role (namely "Doug's Christmas Story" and the movie), he always turns around at the end and does the right thing.
  • Knight Templar / Well-Intentioned Extremist: In "Doug's Christmas Story".
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: While the "Justice" part varies, he's got a pretty impressive chin.
  • One Judge to Rule Them All: In Doug's New School. After Principal (formerly Mayor) White holds a contest to name said new school, Mr. Bluff names it the "Beebe Bluff Middle School" after his daughter, making the whole contest (and conflict of the episode) pointless.
  • Papa Wolf: Very protective of his beloved daughter Beebe. When it seems that Porkchop has attacked her in Doug's Christmas Story (when he was really trying to save her from thin ice), Mr. Bluff's actions border on Knight Templar Parent. He strong arms then-mayor White into forcibly incarcerating Porkchop in the county's toughest, meanest dog pound, starts a public smear campaign against Doug and his family simply because they protested Porkchop's harsh treatment, and blatantly attempted to rig Porkchop's trial by overdramatizing Beebe's injury. (the leg cast was clearly fake)
  • Rich in Dollars, Poor in Sense: In one episode, he tries to "inspire" Doug with the story of how he started his bumper sticker business all by himself... before he remembered he was filthy rich and hired people to do all the hard work for him.
  • Southern Gentleman
  • Upper-Class Twit: More of this than a Corrupt Corporate Executive in the Nickelodeon episodes.

Guy Graham

Voiced by Guy Hadley

Chad Mayonnaise

Willy White, Boomer Bledsoe, and Ned

Voiced by Doug Preis, Billy West (Nickelodeon series only), and Fred Newman respectively

Skunky Beaumont

Voiced by Doug Preis
  • Ascended Extra: He was a background character in the Nickelodeon before becoming a recurring extra in the Disney version.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: To some extent, yes. He's implied to actually know more than he lets on.
  • The Ghost: He wasn't seen until Disney's Doug, but was very much mentioned.
  • Living Legend: In a minor sense, he's one of the most talked about students until he's actually shown
  • Surfer Dude: At least he talks like it.
