  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Averted, all of the male characters are done by males (save for Elmo, he's done by the same girl as Beebe), though Doug is done by female seiyuu (voice actor) Masako Nozawa in Japan.
    • Not quite averted: Doug's grandmother was voiced by Fred Newman, who also played Skeeter, Mr. Dink, and others.
  • The Danza: Guy Hadley voices Guy Graham!
  • Hey, It's That Voice!: In the Japanese dub, Doug is Goku!
  • Keep Circulating the Tapes: While the Nick series has DVDs on Amazon, there's the good chance of playback errors, and two episodes are missing from season four because of "technical difficulties". However, there are torrents available of all four seasons of the Nick series. Played completely straight with the Disney series, with the videos out of print and only a handful of episodes online. Heck, The Movie hasn't even been released on DVD (though it is available for video rental/purchase on Amazon).
    • iTunes has all four seasons, and the two episodes missing from the Season 4 DVD have been reinstated.
      • The movie was released on VideoCD in many second world countries. The catch? was. It's out of print.
  • No Export for You: Some foreign markets only air the Nickelodeon series of the show.
  • The Other Darrin: Thomas McHugh and Chris Phillips replaced Billy West (who didn't want to be part of the Disney variation of Doug) as Doug and Roger's voices, respectively, in the Disney series. This was made note of with Doug in its first episode.
  • Talking to Himself: Doug shares his voice actor with Roger in the Nick series.
    • After Billy West left, Roger ended up talking with himself with Boomer's voice actor in the Disney series.
    • Judy shares her voice actress with her mom Theda.
  • What Could Have Been: The original Doug product was going to be a children's book, Doug Gets a New Pair of Shoes, until the creator found out that Nickelodeon was looking for cartoonists for new original cartoons (during this time, all their cartoons were from different companies), and decided to turn it into a cartoon series. The book ended up serving as the episode Doug's Cool Shoes in season one.
    • Roger was also going to be a rival to Doug for Doug's love interest, Patti. This was scrapped, and the role was taken by Guy once the show was switched over to Disney.
    • The movie was also going to be a Direct to Video release, but Disney decided put it into theaters due to the success of The Rugrats Movie. Critically, it didn't work. In box office numbers, it grossed much less than Rugrats, but it was still a huge profit for Disney.
    • The movie was also going to be made by 20th Century Fox in 1993, along with movies for Rugrats and The Ren and Stimpy Show. Nick's contract fell through before they could make a movie deal. So once Viacom (Nick's company) bought Paramount, Rugrats got its movie, Disney ended up making Doug's movie, and Ren and Stimpy never got one. It's unknown whether Fox's version of Doug's 1st Movie would've been the same movie as it became.
    • Also, the movie was originally going to be called The First Doug Movie Ever, but was later retitled to Doug's 1st Movie.
