Running there until 1996? The show was running on Nickelodeon until 2003. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:36, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

What's the name of the musical episode? (where Skeeter was an astronaut) —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs)

Song in Doug's no Dummy[edit]

Was "I'm a Little Teapot" the original featured song like claimed?

Not Buying the Original Airdates[edit]

What is the source for these airdates? I'm not saying I trust, because I don't, but Sunday was always known as the "Nicktoons" day...and I wouldn't think Doug's new episodes would premier on Wednesdays. What's more, from Sept. 1, 1993 onward, it is claimed two new episodes premiered on most Wednesdays for seasons 3 and 4. Maybe my memory is shoddy, but I do not recall Doug airing more than once a day on weekdays. It generally aired once a day during the evenings (Eastern Time), from what I remember...wasn't part of the afternoon slots during that time. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:19, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

Also, through google archives I have discovered the Christmas episode premiered in December of 93, not 94. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:26, 29 May 2011 (UTC)

I know that Doug Bags A Neematoad is the first episode of the series, but it wasn't the first one that aired. The actual premiere that came on August 11, 1991 was Doug Can't Dance/Doug Gets Busted, which was followed by Tommy's First Birthday, the very first episode of Rugrats, and ending with Stimpy's Big Day/The Big Shot, the first episode of The Ren & Stimpy Show. It aired three times on Nick that day in that order/ Subsequent airings did have the Neematoad episode first and the Dance/Busted episode second. Nemalki (talk) 21:26, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

-That makes sense. The animation in "Doug Can't Dance" (probably the original pilot) is noticeably rougher than any other episode, and it continues to smooth out quickly as season 1 progresses. I'd like to add, I found some old Nickelodeon schedules online, and there's absolutely no way these original air dates are correct. Doug re-runs were a staple at 7 PM ET on weekdays, moved to 6:30 PM for a spell, and then 6:00 PM, before returning to 7:00. Premiering two new episodes on a Wednesday would be impossible, based on only one episode airing per day on weekdays, and I doubt they ever premiered an episode on a weekday to begin with, with the possible exception of a holiday special. I'm thinking, based on the fact that the Christmas and Halloween specials both premiered in late '93 around the time of each holiday, that season 4's first run airings were completed in the spring of 1994 (also note how Ahhh! Real Monsters premiered in the Fall of 1994, and took Doug's place in the Sunday Nicktoons lineup).

I edited the original airdates for the Christmas and Halloween episodes. The sources are:

Based on this and the episode numbers someone provided (assuming those are accurate), I think season 4 actually first-ran in the fall/winter of 1993...probably carrying over into early 1994. The number of weeks between episode 43 (Halloween) and 49 (Christmas) matches up perfectly with the number of Sundays between October 31st and December 12th. I won't change the others unless someone can confirm, though. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:33, 8 October 2011 (UTC)

Airdate for Doug's Halloween Adventure[edit]

I have this particular episode on tape and I know for a fact it aired October 31, 1993. I don't know how to edit a table like the one on this page, so if someone else could make the correction, I would apreciate it. (HairMetalLives (talk) 00:18, 23 July 2008 (UTC))

  • Actually, it premiered the day before on October 30, 1993. It was repeated on Halloween. In any case, the correction was made.--Meadyforzbs (talk) 05:12, 25 October 2011 (UTC)

Disney episode summaries[edit]

We really need to add these!--Hailey 01:34, 13 August 2008 (UTC)

and we need to know what happened on the last episode of the show.Did patti and dog end up together what about skeeter and beebe and did roger ever get a girl. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:18, 17 February 2009 (UTC)

Series finale[edit]

Is there a reason to mark the final episode as Series Finale? Don't we know it's the last episode of the series if we can see that it is the last episode of the series? And isn't there an implied difference between "last episode" and "series finale"? A series finale seems like a planned event. Anyhow, I'm going to boldly remove Series Finale as unhelpful.

Production codes[edit]

Why should the production codes be believed? Where have they been gotten from? -- Anythingspossibleforapossible (talk) 16:39, 12 May 2016 (UTC)

Anythingspossibleforapossible, I'd probably cut 'em. They've been unsourced since at least 2008. They very well could be fabricated. Cyphoidbomb (talk) 16:43, 12 May 2016 (UTC)
Upon looking at the links, they've been ordered based on how iTunes have listed them (which may have been supplied like that from Nickelodeon, if iTunes weren't just copying off of Wikipedia). -- Anythingspossibleforapossible (talk) 16:50, 12 May 2016 (UTC)
Anythingspossibleforapossible: Be that as it may, I'm sure iTunes doesn't incorporate production codes, which are numbering codes used internally by the studio for billing, asset control, payroll, keeping track of voice actors, etc. Even if these are episode codes, (i.e. a different numbering scheme from production codes) they are still unsourced and likely constitute original research. For example if I search the copyright office for "Doug Bags a Neematoad", I don't see any production or episode coding here. So where does "101" come from? More than likely, someone has made an assumption that because it is the first episode that aired in season one, we should use the discussion forum convention of labeling the episode 1x01 or in shorthand, 101. Whatever the case, it's unsourced. And who decided, for instance, that "Doug's On Stage / Doug's Worst Nightmare" should be coded as episode 205, and that it aired after 212 and before 211? Is the implication that 205 was produced first? How do we know? Should be cut if we can't verify this. Some of the later episodes, like "Doug vs. Quailman", which bears a "No. 49" in the article's production code column, may have some basis and validity, for instance here I see the copyright registration indicates that it is episode "no. 49". Cyphoidbomb (talk) 18:56, 12 May 2016 (UTC)
You said that some people have made the assumption that episode 1 must have the production code of "101", this is the case with a few other episode lists that I've also wondered if these could possibly be the "codes" for sure. Even if some of them are in the purported production order, there's nothing to that it's the actual code. So if you're in agreeance then I would remove them from this page. I'll leave the "No. 49" one. -- Anythingspossibleforapossible (talk) 21:11, 12 May 2016 (UTC)
