List of Doug characters

This article contains character information for the American animated television series "Doug".

Characters

* Douglas Yancey "Doug" Funnie: The protagonist and title character in "Doug" (1991-1999). A shy daydreamer with a good heart and a love for writing and music (specifically his favorite band "The Beets"). Doug is an avid banjo player, and can often be found writing songs underneath trees about his secret affection for Patti Mayonnaise. At some point in every episode, Doug is seen writing (and dictating via voice-over) his thoughts in his personal journal, starting each entry with "Dear Journal, It's me. Doug." This journal is extremely important to Doug, and as learned in one episode, he would typically be offended whenever someone called it his "diary". He has several alter-egos: a superhero named Quailman, explorer Race Canyon (parody of Indiana Jones), crime-stopper the Chameleon, cowboy Durango Doug, outlaw Jack Bandit, Wafflestomper (seemingly a parody of Steven Segal) and Secret Agent 000 Smash Adams (a parody of 007 James Bond). Doug was voiced by Billy West (1991-1994: The Series), and Tom McHugh (1996-1999: Disney's Doug).
* Mosquito "Skeeter" Valentine: Doug's aquamarine skinned best friend, he is famous in both versions of the series for the "honk honk" sound he frequently makes. Skeeter comes from another family who has lived in Bluffington for quite some time. His father has a foul temper and has a slow vocabulary. His mother is kind-hearted and rather meek. He also has a mischievous two-year old brother, Dale, who once gave Doug a hard time when Doug babysat for him. He also has an on-again/off-again relationship with rich girl Beebe Bluff. Skeeter initially helps Doug order food from the popular Bluffington restaurant "Honker Burger" (which was later demolished) in the series premiere (resulting in their friendship), and later helps Doug learn how to dance. He has a superhero alter-ego, whom he calls "Silver Skeeter", based on The Silver Surfer from Marvel, and is the equal of Quailman, Doug's superhero alter-ego. It is revealed that Skeeter is a genius, later gaining the respect of geeky twin brothers Al and Moo Sleech. He is very laid-back, and willing to take any situation in stride. His hobbies include: playing air guitar, listening to "The Beets", and hanging out at "Honker Burger". It is often speculated by fans and critics that his facial features, break dancing and beat box abilities that Skeeter is African American. Skeeter was voiced by Fred Newman.
* Patti Mayonnaise: An orange-skinned blonde athlete and Doug's love interest. Her physical talents include: beetball, basketball, baseball, ballet, bowling, and weightlifting, among others. She seemed to like Doug to a certain degree throughout the series, but it was previously unknown whether or not she fully reciprocated his feelings. Her father, Chad, uses a wheelchair to get around, and her mother is deceased, as we learn in one particular episode after Doug causes her old house to cave in by throwing rocks at it. In some episodes of Disney's Doug, she has a super heroic persona named "Supersport". She is voiced by Constance Shulman.
* Porkchop: Doug's anthropomorphic dog who, while not able to talk, helps Doug in certain situations, and has several human-like characteristics. He lives in an igloo in the Funnie family's backyard. Porkchop's typical dog sounds were provided by Fred Newman.
* Roger Klotz: Doug's green-skinned antagonist. He once lived in a trailer park with his divorced mother but Disney had Roger's family become suddenly wealthy, and living in a mansion. Doug uses Roger as a villain in most of his fantasies, including "Klotzilla" and "Dr. Klotzenstein". Roger has a fuscha cat named Stinky that rivals Porkchop. Roger plays lead electric guitar and the trombone for his band. In the Disney episodes while still technically a bully, he is also portrayed as being closer to Doug than the Nickelodeon episodes, sometimes acting more as a friend. He is voiced by Billy West.
* Beebe Bluff : A purple-skinned rich girl. She is a friend of Patti, Doug, and Skeeter. She has an on-again/off-again relationship with Doug's best friend, Skeeter. She is the daughter of Bill Bluff, a rich businessman and descendant of Bluffington's founder, Thaddeus Bluff. Her mother owns the town's ballet school. Her rich family background makes her somewhat spoiled, and therefore, a bit of a snob and constant whiner. In the Disney version, the kids go to Beebe Bluff Middle School, named after Beebe and built in the shape of her head. Beebe was voiced by Alice Playten.
* Theda Funnie: Doug and Judy's mother. She is the typical housewife, but is also a working mother on some occasions. She has pink skin, and tends to be very meek-mannered. However, in one episode, she upbraids Mayor White at a town meeting regarding litter and trash pollution in Bluffington. Theda was voiced by Becca Lish.
* Phillip "Phil" Funnie: Doug and Judy's father. He is a department store photographer. He's outgoing and friendly, and a bit of a shmoe. He has orange skin, and is famous for giving advice and other lines throughout the series, one of which is "The Ol' Funnie Fireball". He is also known for getting to play with (the best band ever) "The Beets". Phil was voiced by Doug Preis.
* Judith "Judy" Funnie: Doug's tan-skinned older sister, and the oddball of the family. She obsesses with the workings of William Shakespeare, and is a wanna-be actor and artist who attends a special art school (Moody School for the Gifted) for gifted individuals. She is a rather intelligent person, but at times is embarrassed by the banality of her family, even going as far as to having her entire family act out a performance piece to impress a boy she once liked. She and Doug have normal bouts of sibling rivalry, but usually team together when faced with a problem. Her usual attire consists of her signature red hair, purple beret, an oversized purple sweater with no sleeves, black shirt and pants, black boots, and black sunglasses. Judy was voiced by Becca Lish.
* Buddy "Bud" Dink: Next-door neighbor of Doug who constantly invests in new inventions that are "very expensive", and end up malfunctioning. Generally, he is a goofy but benevolent character to whom Doug looks for advice. His surname "Dink" stands for Dual Income, No Kids which explains his wealth and ability to purchase so many expensive things. He also has purple skin.
* Tippingdale "Tippy" Dink: Mr. Dink's wife, and later the mayor of Bluffington. She is a slow talker, known for her sarcasm and deadpan reactions to her husband's stupidity and naiveté. However, when Doug aired on ABC, her attitude changed. She is more active, having defeated Robert "Bob" White in an election for Mayor of Bluffington, and her deadpan reactions are far less frequent. Like her husband, Mrs. Dink has purple skin. She was voiced by Doris Belack.
* Cleopatra "Dirtbike" Funnie: Doug's baby sister. Born in the Disney version. She has Caucasian-toned "skin", like Doug. Her name comes from a humorous series of events in the Christmas episode that she was born in. Doug was checking his Christmas list, and Judy questioned what he was looking at. He says they are name suggestions for the baby, but Judy snatches the list, and makes fun of the "names" (one of which was "dirt bike"), then sarcastically makes theatrically relevant suggestions (one of which was "Cleopatra"). At the end of the episode, after the baby was born, Theda (who was present during the argument) tells the siblings that she took a name suggestion from each of them. Dirtbike's vocal effects were provided by Fred Newman.
* Skunky Beaumont: Often mentioned in the Nick version as a troublemaker, but never appeared in the series, though he did appear off-screen once and exchanged greetings with Doug. He first appeared in the Disney version, where he is portrayed as a Jeff Spicolli-esque "dude".
* Chalky Studebaker: A friend of virtually every student at Bluffington School. He is a good-natured and all-around talented student. Incredible athlete and natural-born leader, excels at every sport or activity he participates in (except drawing). He is a "super-jock" with light green skin. He was under tremendous pressure to match the accomplishments of his older brother Cliff, who had amassed a very large trophy collection. Due to this, he often took on more than he could handle in order to live up to his father's expectations. This led to Chalky cheating off of Doug's test in order to get a good grade because of his time consuming extracurricular activities. He later admitted to Mrs. Wingo that he had cheated, and retook it at a later time which showcased his good character and morals. During the class' graduation from Beebe Bluff Middle School Chalky performed Pomp and Circumstance.
* Connie Benge: Connie is a sweet, naive, heavy-set girl in the Nick version, while she is a slimmer singer and songwriter in the Disney version. She seems to have a small crush on Doug. In the Disney version, she develops a crush on Roger. Connie was voiced by Becca Lish.
* Mrs. Wingo: Doug's green-skinned grandmotherly elementary school teacher. Mrs. Wingo was voiced by Doris Belack.
* Stinky: Roger's spoiled fuscha female cat. Originally thought to be male, but eventually had kittens. Stinky's typical cat sounds were provided by Fred Newman.
* William "Bill" Bluff III: The richest man in town, father of Beebe, and descendant of the town's founder. Very much a pompous stuffed-shirt, he refuses to believe anyone but his family could have founded Bluffington, but at the end of a Nickelodeon episode, when the remains of an ancient man were found in Bluffington, it was implied that they were actually that of Mr. Dink's ancestor, not Bluff's. Mr. Bluff was voiced by Doug Preis.
* Robert "Bob" White: The former Mayor of Bluffington, who later becomes the middle school principal. He is constantly asserting everyone he sees to "Vote for Me!", even elementary school students. For a brief while he was a radio personality. Bob was voiced by Greg Lee.
* William "Willy" White: The former Mayor's son, and a member of Roger's gang. Willy plays drums in Roger's band, plays the tambourine in band class and takes piano lessons. Politically enthused and such a daddy's boy, Willy is sure to express his feelings for such an involved parent and voices his opinion more often in Roger's gang alongside Ned Cauphee. Willy was voiced by Doug Preis.
* Mr. Lamaar "T-Bone" Bone: The Vice-Principal at Bluffington Elementary School, and later at Beebe Bluff Middle School, with a strong sense of authority, usually coming off as too strict amongst the students. He is known to carry around a thick hardcover rulebook that lists many explicit social norms and school rules, the vast majority of them being seemingly "silly and pointless" to many extremes. He is quick to punish anyone who misbehaves without a thorough investigation, which is common amongst most principals and teachers in many animated cartoons and live-action shows of the 1990s and 2000s. He is also known for his excessive use of the phrase, "P.D.Q.", which he would always follow with, "Whatever that stands for." It is common knowledge that 'P.D.Q.' stands for "Pretty Damn Quick". He would use this phrase generally after commanding a student to visit his office to be reprimanded. Bone constantly threatens to put any student's mischievous actions on their permanent record. He seems to have a taste for prunes, and is the inspiration of "the Rulemeister", "the Quizzler", and "Robo-Bone", some of Quailman's (Doug Funnie's alter-ego) nemeses. The Rulemeister is the most used character, however, because he is similar in personality to Bone. He has a nephew named Percy Femur, whom he "loves", but quickly sends back to his original school after Mr. Bone finally gets fed up with his bullying. In one episode, after suffering from an accident, he changed his name to T-Bone, after a childhood nickname. A running gag in the series was how Roger Klotz kept calling him, "Assistant Principal Bonehead." His voice uncannily resembles that of Don Knotts, as voiced by Doug Preis.
* Mr. Buttsavitch: the "never-seen" elementary school principal. He was seen as a giant floating head (spoof of "The Wizard of Oz") in one episode during one of Doug's imagination sequences. He was known to be much kinder in the sequence than his subordinate, Mr. Bone, it is said at one point he single-handedly pulled a student from a burning science lab.
* Alex Tang: Appeared in one episode, in which he helped Doug pass a tough geometry test. Voiced by Andrew Cusick.
* Grandma Opal: Doug's maternal grandmother, who seems to be either divorced or widowed. She owns a motorcycle, and is into disco. She is remembered for introducing her grandson to the Japanese delicacy sushi, of which he was originally skeptical. She also indicates that at one time she was quite popular.
* Grandma Funnie: Doug's paternal grandmother, who also appears to be either divorced or widowed. She is a stereotypical kind grandmother, who often spoils Doug with excessive amounts of junk food. She lives by the philosophy that "simple is best", and stitching a sample of it on the mantle, though her exact phrasing of this belief is absurdly convoluted. She owned a craft store in a Disney episode, which Doug turned into a popular coffee shop to make some money for a Beets concert, only to be forced to spend all his earnings at the end to pay off the store's debt amassed from a humorous incident involving Skunky, and return the store to the way it was.
* Boomer Bledsoe: He is a member of Roger's gang. But in some episodes, he is the only gang member, in both the Nick and Disney versions, who is actually nice to Doug. Boomer plays keyboard in Roger's band. He is voiced by Chris Phillips.
* Ned Cauphee: He is a member of Roger's gang. He has 10 brothers, and has twin sisters. He once lived with the Funnie family for a brief time when his house burned down. He has been known to play classical music very well on a piano and play Bass in Roger's band.
* Fentruck Stimel: He is a dark green-skinned foreign exchange student from the fictional country of "Yakistonia". He does not make much prominence until the Disney version. In the Disney Christmas episode, he thinks Christmas is Halloween, and Halloween is Easter. He was known for his bizarre cultural greetings and other traditions. For instance, when greeting someone he would place his hand under his armpit and make "fart noise" gestures, while continually saying, "Shwooba, shwooba, shwooba!" At one point, he gave Doug a jar of fresh Yakistonian air as a gift.
* Coach Spitz: The foul-tempered coach at Bluffington School. He only appeared in a few episodes as a baseball and football coach. He is sexist and typically unconcerned with the well-being of his students. Coach Spitz was voiced by Jeff Bergman.
* Percy Femur: He is Mr. Bone's nephew. Percy is a tall, mean, and tough student. He is known to sport a rat-tail hairstyle, camouflage pants, and army boots. He once bullied Roger until he was sent back to his old school (with the help of Doug). He makes small roles in the series, and seems to be somewhat of a decent athlete but is incredibly stupid and gullible.
* Mr. Shelacki: The protectionist and overly childish guidance counselor at Doug's school in the original series, who constantly seems to be stuck in the 1970s. Often wears a sweater that says "Hug Me". He once associated Doug's middle name, Yancey, with "the good Doug". He uses a lot of sociological phrases. For example, in the "Career Day" episode, he tells Doug that he received an unstable career because "The only people who have job security are orthodontists, dentists, surgeons, physicians, and trial lawyers". He also uses some childish phrases like "Mr. Computer had a little tummy ache."
* Mr. Swirly: The local ice cream and candy salesman in the original series. Mr. Swirly is often seen in his uniform. He also has a head shaped like an ice cream cone. Doug saved "Student Government Day" by suggesting that Mr. Swirly let the chocolate chips, which were about to hit the ice cream factory cooling fans, hit the fan, thus turning them into "Chocolate Swirlies" (Doug's favorite). This comes from an old phrase, which Doug mentions later in the episode: "Sometimes you just have to let the chips hit the fan". In the Disney version, Mr. Swirly opens his own restaurant called "Swirly's", where the kids all hang out, since, at this time, "Honker Burger" no longer exists (It was replaced by the classier "Chez Honque").
* Ms. Kristal: Doug's junior high school teacher, introduced in the Disney adaptation. She eventually gets engaged to Patti's father. She is an exciting and happy teacher.
* Guy Graham: He is a self-motivating eighth-grader, who first appeared in Disney's Doug. He had a crush on Patti, and was Doug's new arch-enemy. While he was a supporting character, he played a major role in "Doug's 1st Movie", being Bill Bluff's right-hand man, unknowingly. He also is another of Quailman's nemeses, called the Golden Salmon.

pecial characters

* Durango Doug: A Clint Eastwood/John Wayne-spoofed cowboy who "has a rock-hard head, and eats stale bread". He wears a live rattlesnake for a belt. Only appeared in one episode, in which Doug tried to ride a horse for the first time.
* Quailman: Doug's primary superhero and alter-ego. Quailman (along with sidekick, Quaildog [aka Porkchop] ), "saved the world" on numerous occasions. Often seen wearing a cape, clean underwear over his pants, and a belt around his head, Quailman was a match for any evil-doer using his three 'powers' -- patience, intelligence, and speed. If those didn't work, there was always the "Quail Eye", a ray fired from his eyes, which would render his enemies "helpless and stupified". Quailman's villains are often based on Roger, with "Klotz" always being part of their name, for example "Dr. Klotzenstein", "Klotzilla", "Baron Von Klotz", and "The Psyklotz". Mr. Bone was also a villain twice ("Robo-Bone" and "The Rulemeister"). His dark side pays homage to the evil Superman in Superman III. He is a native of "the planet Bob".
* Smash Adams: Doug's favorite action-movie hero. He is clearly based on James Bond. His name is a possible reference to the superhero Atom Smasher. In the Disney series, his franchise was massively re-tooled into a comedy series, much to Doug's displeasure, and possibly a reference to Arnold Schwarzenegger, who starred in several comedies later in his career.
* Neematoad: A mythical creature that supposedly lives in "Lucky Duck Lake" (in the pilot, the Neematoad is said to have lived in "Stinson's Pond"), it is the official mascot of Bluffington. Roger told Doug that "the Neematoad call" was "Calukacoo", and Doug spent hours calling for one, while Roger and his gang hid, watching and laughing at him.
* Herman Melville: Possibly spawned from the Neematoad, the lake monster of "Lucky Duck Lake", he was first mentioned in Disney's Doug. Skeeter spent much of the series trying to prove the monster's existence. This became the genesis of the plot of "Doug's 1st Movie", where the lake monster was revealed to be real. Doug and Skeeter name the monster Herman Melville after the monster tried to eat Skeeter's copy of "Moby-Dick".
* Race Canyon: Doug's second-favorite action hero, based on Indiana Jones (but possibly named in homage to Race Bannon from Jonny Quest), wearing the fedora hat; leather sack on his side; etc., Skeeter was the sidekick "Skeetari", and, of course, Roger occasionally was the villain. Doug dressed as him in the Nickelodeon-era Halloween episode.
* The Waffle Stomper: Doug's Steven Segal character, who is known for his waffle-iron shoe that he used to stomp the bad guys, and save Patti with.
* The Silver Skeeter: One of Quailman's sidekicks, and obviously Skeeter's creation. He is clearly based on The Silver Surfer. He's notable, in that he's what Doug refers to as "too powerful" -- his stock of superpowers seems endless, to include transforming his body's shape, flight, or really anything that Skeeter believed needed to be done to resolve a problem as easily as possible. The Silver Skeeter hails from the planet "popdiddalyumpwaooga" (stated using sound effects).
* Jack Bandit: In one particular episode, Doug felt rebellious, and tried to run away. He had to live "on the lam" as this character, camping out in the woods near his school. Catchphrase - "Wanana, Jack Bandit!"
* Quaildog: Quailman's sidekick, based on Porkchop. Has all of the powers of Quailman, but also has the "Quail Tail", which is capable of such powers as lock-picking by physically altering Quaildog's tail into a new shape.
* Dylan Farnum: The fashionable of the weekly teen drama "Teen Heart Street". Doug is accused of copying his clothing style when it is discovered that they dress identically for one week.
* Chuck "Sky" Davis: A spin-off of Michael "Air" Jordan's commercial sneaker-based success. He was a famous basketball player, who also marketed his self-titled basketball sneakers - "Sky Davis AirJets" - which were sold in all sizes up to 24-EEE. Doug discovers the last pair at a shoe store, only to find that they are too expensive for him to buy a full pair. Roger soon enters, purchasing the last pair of "AirJets", rubbing his snide sense of achievement in Doug's face, only to later fall flat on his face from the massively-oversized shoe. Doug meets "the real Sky Davis" shortly afterwards, and finds him to be a very down-to-earth individual with a love for his "old" sneakers. Sky was courteous enough to autograph Doug's shoes. He tells Doug to call him Chuck.
* Supersport: A sidekick of Quailman's, based on Patti Mayonnaise.
* Ronald Weisenheimer: A bodybuilder and fitness expert who is obviously based on Arnold Schwarzenegger. Doug looks up to him when he wants to get in shape after gaining a few pounds from eating too many sweets at his grandmother's house one episode. He often uses the Arnold-esque catchphrase, "Prepare to suffer!"
* The Magician: An illusionist whom Doug portrayed in trying to impress Patti by performing magic tricks. His plan did not entirely succeed when he failed to make a pair of handcuffs disappear "after" he handcuffed himself to Patti. In angst, Doug threw the key down an air vent. His "magic words" were "Veni-Vidi-Vici!".
* The Chameleon: A detective who investigates a crime using his mastery of disguise, hence the name, "chameleon," based on the episode Doug takes the case, doug wants to find out who stole Beebe's radio.

* The Beets: A rock band, composed of Monroe Yoder; Wendy Nespott; Chap Lippman; and Flounder, clearly based on both The Beatles (in name and somewhat Scouse accents) and The Ramones (in appearance and sound) with bits of The Smashing Pumpkins as well (in outlook and contemporariness), that Doug and Skeeter are big fans of, later breaks up, and go solo in the Disney version. The band's last album was titled "Let It Beet", with an album cover parodying both the Beatles' "Let It Be" and The Rolling Stones' "Let It Bleed". Songs The Beets produced include: "Killer Tofu", "I Need Mo' Allowance", "Where's My Sock?", and "You Gotta Shout Your Lungs Out". Numerous episodes involve Doug and Skeeter pursuing tickets to the band's concerts, or the band members themselves. The band's original name was "The Pickled Beets", a possible reference to the Beatles originally being known as "The Silver Beetles". Their first #1 single was "I Sneezed On My Face". The band has developed a cult following with original viewers of the show. The band's popularity reached an all-time high with "Beet Mania" (clearly a reference to Beatlemania). In addition, Doug once won tickets to a Beets concert through a radio contest, after absent-mindedly naming (correctly) one of the Beets' albums, "Beets Me".
