Doug is a Nickelodeon cartoon series created by Jim Jinkins for 52 episodes between 1991 and 1994. The show revolves around Doug Funnie, an imaginative 11½ year old boy who is one of the only people in his world with natural skin color, who lives his life in his new hometown and writes in his journal about many of his experiences.

In 1996, Jinkins' Jumbo Pictures was accquired by The Walt Disney Company, resulting in a new series produced by Walt Disney Television. Though it finished with more episodes, and a feature film, it did not recieve the same following as the Nickelodeon series.
