* ProductionThrowback: Music cues from another Disney / Jumbo Pictures show, ''[[Disney/OneHundredAndOneDalmatians 101 Dalmatians: The Series]]'' play in a few scenes. When Doug and Skeeter are walking out of the photoshop at the mall, the background music theme from "Mall Pups" plays, and when Mr. Bluff's army are searching for Herman, Lt. Pug's {{Leitmotif}} plays.

Originally conceived as a DirectToVideo release, Disney decided to release it theatrically to capitalize on the success of ''WesternAnimation/TheRugratsMovie''. Because this decision was so last-minute, the film was only barely changed visually to appeal to a theatrical presentation. Critics bashed the movie for, appropriately enough, looking like a overdone direct-to-video movie and feeling like just like an extended version of an episode. And while it did recoup its small budget, it still didn't make a lot of money[[note]]A contributing factor could've been that ''Doug'' was on its last leg. The show was about to hit sixty-five episodes (the episode limit), the production staff was too busy with ''WesternAnimation/PBAndJOtter'', and ''WesternAnimation/{{Recess}}'' was quickly becoming the most popular show on Creator/OneSaturdayMorning. It also [[InvisibleAdvertising barely got any advertisement]].[[/note]]. It ended up selling much better on video. [[{{Irony}} Go figure]].

* TookALevelInJerkass: Guy, compared to the series. He wasn't exactly one of Doug's friends, but he never seemed to deliberately do anything to ''spite'' Doug. In the movie? Even ''before'' the plot about the monster takes centre stage, he's throwing Doug off of the organising council ''he signed up for'' just because Patti was on it.
