Doug was originally a Nickelodeon show that ran from 1991 to 1994,although my kids watched it much longer than that. Emma wasn't even born until 1991,so I know we didn't start watching it then.
"Doug" was one of Nickelodeon's first original animated series,along with "Rugrats" and "Ren and Stimpy".
|Creator Jim Jinkins based Doug and his adventures on his own Virginia childhood.|
As I've said before, I love having toys of characters from the shows my kids loved when they were still kids. It brings back happy memories of watching the shows with them way back when they were little.
There were 52 original Nickelodeon episodes of "Doug" in all, following Doug Funnie's adventures in 6th grade,with his friend Skeeter,his true love, Patti Mayonnaise,his dog Porkchop,and his favourite band, The Beets. (Their big song was "Killer Tofu".)

He has a cloth body and limbs, and a vinyl head.
His trademark hair is made from nylon cord.
His clothes and shoes are not removable.
|His shirt has spots from the water I dripped when I cleaned his head for his photo shoot. He'll get a run through the wash soon.|
