Douglas Yancey "Doug" Funnie.
Voiced by Billy West (Nickelodeon), Thomas McHugh (Disney)
- Adorably Precocious Child
- Adorkable: Let's just say this: he is so socially akward to the nth degree that makes him so cute!
- And when Patti's around, expect this to be turned Up to Eleven.
- Badass Adorkable: In his Quailman fantasies. He can be this outside his fantasies whenever he pulls a Moment of Awesome.
- Billy West: In the Nickelodeon cartoon. Hard to believe that that's also the guy who voices Stimpy (later Ren and Stimpy following John K's termination) in The Ren and Stimpy Show.
- Book Dumb
- A Boy and His Semi-Anthropomorphic dog
- Break the Cutie: During the Nickelodeon Christmas special
- Cannot Spit It Out: Goes the entire series without being able to reveal his feelings towards Patti...until Patti asks Doug to go on a "date-date" with her, revealing her feelings.
- Captain's Log: His journal.
- Character Development: He becomes less shy in the Disney series and gets more of a backbone as the series goes on.
- Charlie Brown Baldness: Made odder by the fact that he needed to get a haircut in one episode, and in another episode, worried that he was going bald.
- However, most fanart makes him a brunette.
- Corrupt the Cutie: Doug's Big Comeback from the Disney series.
- Embarrassing Middle Name
- The Everyman
- Extreme Doormat: Has shades of this.
- The Hero
- Heroic Self-Deprecation: Oh, so much. He may fantasize about being amazing, but he knows that as everyday Doug Funnie he's not. He even tends to downplay his own talents or achievements!
- I Have This Friend: It's not me!
- I Just Want to Be Special: Is painfully aware of how average he is compared to his friends, and wishes he could be as talented or special as they are. This is likely why he created Quail Man the superhero and pretends to be Smash Adams or Race Canyon in his head.
- The Klutz: At times.
- Limited Wardrobe: Well, actually, this applies to all the characters, but Doug lampshaded it by showing everyone else that his wardrobe is filled with multiple identical sets of his outfit.
- Masako Nozawa: His voice in the Japanese dub.
- The Messiah
- Mr. Imagination
- Naive Everyboy
- Naive Newcomer
- Nice Guy
- Ridiculously Average Guy: He's not really Book Dumb, but also not a straight-A student, he's not very handsome, but not ugly (he's cute, though), he's not much of an athlete, but not terrible in athletics. He even described himself as being "painfully average".
- It culminates in the second-to-last season where finds out that his permanent record just says "average" in all the fields.
- Secret Diary
- Shrinking Violet: Sometimes.
- The Southpaw
- Vocal Evolution: In the "Doug Can't Dance" pilot, his voice was more high-pitched and nasal compared to his voice in every other episodes of the Nick series.
- During season four of the Nick series, his voice started to get lower.
"Voiced" by Fred Newman
- Deadpan Snarker: While he can't talk, his actions make him a deadpan snarker at times.
- Expy: Of Snoopy.
- Hero with Bad Publicity: In "Doug's Christmas Story".
- Non-Human Sidekick
Mosquito "Skeeter" Valentine
Voiced by Fred Newman
- Black Best Friend: A popular interpretation, though the creator says otherwise.

- Catch Phrase: "Cool, man!"
- Genius Ditz

- American Accents: Vaguely Texan.
- Darkskinned Blonde
- Edible Theme Naming
- Hair of Gold
- The Heart
- Hollywood Tone Deaf: In the ABC/Disney version.
- Homeschooled Kids: In the first episode of the Disney version, she tells Doug that she's only going to be in middle school for a couple of hours in the afternoon and would be home-schooled with her dad. Eventually ends up back in public school full-time after her dad gets a teaching position.
- Lethal Chef: She can't cook worth beans until she and Doug pair off for a cooking assignment. She doesn't become a master chef, but she proves she can make a pizza without screwing up.
- Master of the Mixed Message
- Missing Mom: Patti's mom died in a car accident (which may or may not be connected with her father being in a wheelchair)
- Start My Own
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Tomboy to Beebe's Girly Girl.
- Vocal Evolution: Her voice was a little bit lower in the pilot.
Voiced by Billy West (Nickelodeon), Chris Phillips (Disney)
- Anti Role Model: Was used as this in the Nick series, less so in the Disney series.

- Evil Laugh
- Gang of Bullies: His gang which consists of him, Boomer, Ned, and Willy
- Hidden Depths: In "Doug Wears Tights," Roger demonstrates some surprisingly good dance skills. He actually played the Rat King in the town's amateur production of The Nutcracker.
- Hopeless Suitor: Towards Judy in one episode, before he's turned off by her melodramatic "prediction" of their future and backs away. Becomes this to Beebe in the Disney series, trying to change his ways for her but ultimately failing miserably.

- Redheaded Bully
- The Rival: Becomes this to Beebe Bluff in the Disney series, as both try to compete with each other to flaunt their wealth.
- Screams Like a Little Girl
- Troubled but Cute
- Cats Are Mean
- Morality Pet: As nasty as Roger can be there is no doubt about how much he loves his cat. Check out "Doug's Fat Cat" where Roger actually breaks down in tears when he thinks Stinky is sick.
- Right-Hand-Cat: To Roger
- Samus Is a Girl: Thought to be a boy until she had kittens.
- Your Tomcat Is Pregnant
Voiced by the late Alice Playten

- Lovable Alpha Bitch: Despite being filthy rich and her family owning the whole town, she's usually quite nice.

- Spoiled Sweet: When not needed as a Rich Bitch in the plot.
- Tomboy and Girly Girl: Girly Girl to Patti's Tomboy.
- Tsundere: Towards Skeeter.

- Nice Hat: Her beret.
- One-Shot Character: Judy had a boyfriend named Kyle who left by the end of "Doug's Sister Act" and never came back!
- Pet the Dog: Judy's one of the main antagonists of the series...yet she most definitely gets a lot of these
- Sunglasses At Night: She does take them off every now and then, but not often.
Phil and Theda Funnie
- Camera Fiend: Doug's dad, he actually is a professional photographer.
- Good Parents
- Happily Married
- Standard Fifties Father
Bud and Tippy Dink
- Catch Phrase: "Very Expensive"

- The Talk: Says she's way past due having this with Roger when she realizes he didn't know his own cat's gender!
- All Girls Want Bad Boys: It's been known in a 1999 Disney Adventure's comic that Connie has a crush on Roger!
- Ascended Extra: She's given a much bigger role in Disney's Doug.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Sometimes.
- The Cutie
- Fan Service Pack: In the Disney series.
- Hopeless Suitor: To Doug in the Nickelodeon series. She had a crush on him and even asked him to a dance, but he only had eyes for Patti.
- Single Woman Seeks Good Man: In the Nick series, she has a crush on Doug.
- The Ace: Deconstructed somewhat.

- Big Man on Campus: Fits Chalky to a T!
- Jerk Jock: Averted. He's the school jock, but he's really nice.
- "Well Done, Son" Guy: Wants so badly to impress his dad, who has such high hopes for him, that he ends up cheating on a test.
Al and Moo Sleech
- Amazingly Embarrassing Parents: Played with. A lot of the kids think their dad's some sort of insane and amoral Mad Scientist that Al and Moo hardly try to deny, and in fact act afraid about any of the kids meeting him. However, when we meet the man he's... A donut maker. Granted he builds his own equipment, but hardly the sort who conducts 'strange experimentations.'
- May-December Romance: Both have crushes on Judy.
- The Smart Guys
Mayor (later Principal) Bob White
Voiced by Doug Preis

- Dean Bitterman
- Large Ham: His voices is an impression of Don Knotts.
- Obstructive Bureaucrat
- Sadist Teacher: At his worst.
- Stern Teacher: At his best.
William "Bill" Bluff III
Voiced by Doug Preis
- American Accents: Dixie.
- Big Bad: In The Movie.
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: Moreso in the Disney episodes and movie.
- Heel Face Turn: Whenever he's in a more villainous role (namely Doug's Christmas Story and the movie), he always turns around at the end and does the right thing.
- Hot Dad: Admit it!
- Knight Templar / Well-Intentioned Extremist: In "Doug's Christmas Story".
- Lantern Jaw of Justice: While the "Justice" part varies, he's got a pretty impressive chin.
- One Judge to Rule Them All: In Doug's New School. After Principal (formerly Mayor) White holds a contest to name said new school, Mr. Bluff names it the "Beebe Bluff Middle School" after his daughter, making the whole contest (and conflict of the episode) pointless.
- Papa Wolf: Very protective of his beloved daughter Beebe. When it seems that Porkchop has attacked her in Doug's Christmas Story (when he was really trying to save her from thin ice), Mr. Bluff's actions border on Knight Templar Parent.
- To wit: He strong arms then-mayor White into forcibly incarcerating Porkchop in the county's toughest, meanest dog pound, starts a public smear campaign against Doug and his family simply because they protested Porkchop's harsh treatment, and blatantly attempted to rig Porkchop's trial by overdramatizing Bebbe's injury. (the leg cast was clearly fake)
- Rich in Dollars, Poor In Sense: In one episode, he tries to "inspire" Doug with the story of how he started his bumper sticker business all by himself... before he remembered he was filthy rich and hired people to do all the hard work for him.
- Southern Gentleman
- Upperclass Twit: More of this than a Corrupt Corporate Executive in the Nickelodeon episodes.
Voiced by Guy Hadley
- Catch Phrase: "BANG!", "BIG BIG BIG", "MONDO", and "That's HOT"!
- Disco Dan: Guy's favorite kind of music.
- Flanderization: He's an obnoxious egotist but not really that much of a jerk in the show at all, as stated below. The Movie, however, inexplicably takes his negative qualities to the extreme and turns him into an outright villain.
- Intergenerational Friendship: Guy with Mr. Bluff. Especially since Guy's parents are never shown and Mr. Bluff is the closest thing to a parent he has on the show.
- It's All About Me: Guy surely thinks so, at least to a mild extent.
- Jive Turkey: Guy should be the Trope Namer of this trope, seriously! EVERYTHING that comes out of his mouth is either this or Totally Radical!
- Large Ham
- Motor Mouth: When Guy talks, you might feel like you need a nap.
- No Indoor Voice
- The Rival: He's this to Doug, at least when it comes to romance: Guy's after Patti, too.
- Unknown Rival: Guy doesn't realize how much a burden he is on Doug.
- School Newspaper Newshound
- Small Name, Big Ego: And since his name is "Guy", it's literatelly a small name.
Willy, Boomer, and Ned
- Bad Bad Acting: Boomer in "Doug on Stage" when playing the role of a tree.
- Cloudcuckoolander: Willy! So adorable, yet, so dumb.
- Cowardly Sidekick: Applies to all. Especially Boomer and Willy!
- The Cutie: Willy. With that cute little tooth and clueless personality, how could you NOT want to hug him?
- The Ditz: Willy
- Five-Bad Band:
- Gang of Bullies
- Massive Numbered Siblings: Ned is one of these.
- Missing Mom: Literally MISSING mom! Willy's mom has never made an on-screen appearance.
- Only Sane Man: Ned to an extent, he's considerably more intelligent than the rest.
- Sarcasm Blind: WILLY! On several occasions.
- The Scapegoat: Boomer, twice. In Doug's Doodle, he found Doug's drawing of Mrs. Wingo hysterical. His over-exaggerated laughing caused Mrs. Wingo to assume he did it and assigned him detention. This happens again in Doug's Halloween Adventure when Roger tells him to shut up because thought Boomer called his and Willy's name.
- Three Amigos: Nuff said.
- Token Good Teammate: Boomer is the only one of the gang who's never been an asshole to Doug on his own.
- Verbal Tic: Willy's DUUUH!
- Cloudcuckoolander: To some extent, yes. He's implied to actually know more than he lets on.
- The Ghost: He wasn't seen until Disney's Doug, but was very much mentioned.
- Hair of Gold
- Surfer Dude: At least he talks like it.
- Betty and Veronica: Sally is the Betty out of the eighth graders, and Cassandra Bleem is Veronica.
- The Lancer: To Guy
- The Mentor: Essentially is this to Doug when Guy sends him out to do an investigative report for the school newspaper. A Running Gag throughout the episode was her advice being proven wrong mere seconds after she gives it to him.
- No Hugging, No Kissing: Guy and Sally work together, but yet as much time they spend with each other, there's absolutely no romance between them.
- Plot Allergy: In one of the "Doug" books, we find out Sally's allergic to chalk. Due to the fact, Doug is trying to find out who drew on the wall with chalk.
- Recurring Extra
- School Newspaper Newshound
- Smart People Wear Glasses
- Women Are Wiser: Than Guy, considering how loud and egotistical he is. Sally's more level-headed.
- You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Well, at least greenish-blue hair.
- Alpha Bitch: Cassandra is this trope.
- The Beautiful Elite
- It's All About Me
- Jerk with a Heart of Jerk: She's DEFINITELY the biggest jerk on the whole show...even worse than Roger and Mr. Bluff by a landslide! She's not even misunderstood!
- Valley Girl: Her voice surely applies, even if she's not The Ditz by any means. She's just Book Dumb at times.
- Attractive Bent Gender: Roger falls for Herman when he's disguised as "Hermione."
- Extreme Omnivore
- Fish People
- Grotesque Gallery
- Stock Ness Monster
