Introduction (Taken from the DVD set):

Tune in to this classic show featuring Doug and his pals Skeeter, Patti, Roger and Beebe. They dance, they camp, they doodle, they play, and they...blow up the science room? It's one wild adventure after another with Doug and all his pals.

Memorable Episodes:

As someone who has seen the show during its original run, it's really tough to pick out just a few memorable episodes...each episode holds a special place for me! There are a few obvious ones, though, and I'll go over those. In the premiere episode "Doug Bags A Neematoad", Doug and his family move to Bluffington, and worries that he won't make any friends there. He experiences the good...and the bad, but in the end, it's all one big learning experience.

In "Doug Gets Busted", as described in the introduction, Doug creates a volcano for a science experiment, and when a rumor is spread that it caused the lab to explode, Doug becomes "Jack Bandit" to run away from possible trouble.

In "Doug Rocks", Doug and Skeeter get a chance to see The Beets live, but Skeeter gets grounded. Doug wants to go, but decides to stick with his best friend. They get a nice surprise in the end, on their visit to the Honker Burger.

In "Doug Is Quailman", Doug begins to doodle his favorite cartoon superhero, Quailman, and imagines himself as the title hero, in his own adventures.

Packaging:

The packaging is a very standard Amaray-style case, which holds the three discs. The case actually feels quite sturdy, and the discs do not overlap each other. The artwork is simple, and it gets the job done. The discs themselves are printed on a nice, glossy, and high quality label, which gives it a professional look and feel to it.

Douglas Yancy Funnie has no incredibly special qualities. He's not half-ghost. He doesn't have a pair of wacky fairy godparents (though he does have a dog who thinks he's practically human) at his beck and call. He doesn't live under the sea. He's just a normal 12-year-old boy going through normal, REAL things and writing (or drawing) about it in his journal. And we love him just the way he is. From adjusting to a new environment, to getting your crush to notice you, to working through low self-esteem, this middle-schooler charmed his way through every episode dealing with these issues.

Doug was Nickelodeon's very first Nicktoon (and you may be interested to know that his voice is provided by Billy West of Futurama fame). It's very cute and fun, and you can't leave feeling anything but good, no matter your mood when you started. But if you're looking for outrageous situations and computer slick animation, look elsewhere.

Now, for content. If you're expecting extras - cast interviews, photo gallery, TV commercials, etc. - don't. You won't find it. The menus are plain and to the point, your only options being to choose an episode or play all of them, and that's it. This is as bare as it gets. However, the video quality is very good and played fine on my DVD player and computer. Despite the price for something so minimal, it's definitely worth getting. If you consider yourself a fan and want to support the show, get it for sure. Send a message to Nickelodeon that we want more seasons released.

Doug used to be one of my favorite shows when I was younger, and I was disappointed when it stopped showing on the air. Luckily it was released on DVD!

I thought it was a little odd that they come on DVD-Rs, but they play perfectly, so I have no complaints. I believe this is simply because Amazon burns them on demand, rather than having a warehouse full of unpurchased copies.

I've read a couple reviews that hate the menus, and I don't understand why. It is very simple: There is a "Play All" option, and just below that there is an "Episodes" option. If you select Episodes, you get a list of all the episodes on the disc with a little thumbnail from that episode next to each selection, and you can pick which one you want. Perfect.

I've also read a review or two that stated that they have problems playing the disc in their player. This will most likely only happen if you have an extremely old or cheap player that does not support DVD-R playback. It is INCREDIBLY rare to find a DVD player that lacks DVD-R support, so don't worry!

Overall, Doug is a great purchase for any old Nickelodeon fan. It includes a ton of episodes on the three discs. The quality is exactly the same as each episode was recorded in, so no one can complain that the quality is poor. In my opinion, it's perfect.

You get the shows. Nothing more, nothing less, unless they don't burn correctly in which that case, you'll end up with less. :(

The quality of the picture and sound for the episodes is decent, but the menus are terrible. Half the time I have to restart my DVD player over and over again to be able to select the "Play All" feature because I know the episode selection never works. If you're a hardcore Nickelodeon freak from back in the day like I am, it'll be worth your money, just beware.
