One of Nickelodeon's original hit Nicktoons from 1991, Doug
is the story of a shy 12-year-old boy who keeps a journal. Doug Funnie is moving to a new town and, like any kid, he's nervous about the move. He imagines all sorts of disasters and crazy scenarios as he struggles to fit in and find new friends. Sometimes he deals with his insecurities by imagining himself as the cartoon superhero Quailman, and other times he just tries to face his fears and do the right thing. It looks like his worst nightmare is about to come true on his first day in Bluffington when no one at the local burger joint understands what he's saying. But local kid Skeeter steps in and saves the day, and a new friendship is born. Good thing, because Doug will definitely need someone other than his dog Pork Chop to serve as his ally when dealing with the local bully, Roger. Roger's welcoming act is to dare Doug to catch a "neematoad" at the local pond. Doug hastens to do his bidding only to find out that the existence of neematoads is just a town myth--or is it? So begins Doug's struggle to outsmart the local bully, conquer his own insecurities, and avoid looking like the town's biggest loser. Along the way he deals with everything from his first crush and dance jitters to guilt over blowing up the science room, finding his missing journal, figuring out a way to rectify a costly accident, and saying goodbye to his new best friend. The whole concept of the program feels a lot like Diary of a Wimpy Kid
, and, in fact, the series was based on the unpublished novel Doug Got a New Pair of Shoes
by artist and series creator Jim Jinkins. The very simplicity of the animation and visual style underscores the message that even the most everyday occurrence can be a big deal to a kid, and that sometimes the solutions to the biggest problems are deceivingly uncomplicated. This three-disc, burn-on-demand DVD compilation offers the same quality picture and sound as the original television presentation. There are no special features. (Ages 7 and older) --Tami Horiuchi
