DougWhile you're feeling old as you realize today is the 20th anniversary of the premiere of 'Doug' -- it's OK, we've all been there -- take a walk down memory lane with us.

'Doug' debuted alongside 'Rugrats' and 'Ren & Stimpy' as part of Nickelodeon's NickToons block. Created by Jim Jinkins, the series followed 11-year-old Doug Funnie over seven seasons, two networks and 117 episodes. Set in the fictional town of Bluffington, Doug pals around with his best friend Skeeter, avoids bully Roger and tries to woo Patti Mayonnaise.

After being canceled in 1994, the series moved to Disney and aired on ABC as part of Disney's One Saturday Morning schedule.

The title character was voiced by TV veteran Billy West until 1994. West is known for his work as Fry on 'Futurama' as well as providing the voices of both Ren and Stimpy in the original cartoon. Thomas McHugh took over the role when the show moved to ABC. Besides giving the world Quailman, the fictional band The Beets and their hit song "Killer Tofu," the series is perhaps best-known for its infectious theme song.

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of 'Doug' premiering on Nick, check out the best tribute videos found around the web.

A fake -- yet still cool -- movie trailer that sees Doug returning from college.

Of course no tribute list would be complete without an a cappella version.

And now, some Beets for you all.
