Stuff from the 90's is da bomb!
TV Themes: Doug (Nickelodeon)
Date Began: August 11, 1991
Date Ended: 1994
Doug premiered on Nickelodeon on August 11, 1991, where it continued until December 16, 1994, and was aired in reruns until 2003, being the first Nicktoon. As of 2009, Nickelodeon’s Doug airs reruns on MTV Tr3́s affiliates KBEH and KMOH-TV (as an E/I program) in the US and on Nicktoonsters in the UK.
In the first episode, Douglas Yancey Funnie and his family (Phil, Theda, and sister Judy) arrive in a new town called Bluffington after moving away from their former residence in Bloatsburg. There he meets Skeeter, Patti, Roger, and Beebe, and his new life in a new town begins.
John Kricfalusi, the creator of The Ren & Stimpy Show, stated on a DVD commentary for his show that among the three original Nicktoons (Rugrats being the other one), Nickelodeon was banking on Doug to be its major hit. This, however, was not the case; Rugrats would go on to be the biggest hit of the three original Nicktoons, going on to have the longest run of any Nicktoon to date and still airing on the channel as of 2011, whereas Doug (in its Nickelodeon incarnation) had the shortest run of the three and is the only one of the three not airing in reruns on any of the Nickelodeon networks.
