Never forget how Disney ruined Doug by slapping on a bunch of arbitrary bullshit changes:
• The Beets broke up • Honker Burger closed • Roger got rich • Connie got a more “normal” body type • Doug became Porkchop’s pet • Skeeter’s safeword changed from “honk honk” to “eebeedeebee”
• The town was named Doug
• “Patti Mayonnaise Memorial Swimming Pool” WTF!
• Mayor White became part of Doug’s circle of friends • Sex moans in the theme song • Everyone could see Doug’s imagination sequences happen in reality • 9/11 predictions got a lot less subtle
• Mr. Dink calmed down
• Judy Funnie became a baby • Mr. Bone lived in Doug’s walls • Doug’s voice actor was replaced by Sir Michael Caine
• Every episode was 4 hours long
• Every character was nude with grotesquely long, muscular torsos • Roger always dropped a gun on the floor in every scene
• Doug turned twelve
• Every episode ended with Doug’s parents dying
My entries into the That’s So Sugoi! zine that Janet / Arielle are putting together, focusing on 90’s Cartons x Anime. Apparently in my head, that means Quailman / Patty Mayonnaise in a Magical Girl pose and Johnny Bravo as a bishounen (in his head)…
Check out the zine if you’re heading to AnimeNext or AnimeBoston this year!
