Bob and Doug MacKenzie cartoon will be on Fox

It looks like a new generation of television viewers may be introduced to Bob and Doug MacKenzie. The creations of SCTV alumni Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas have a new, animated life that will be broadcast on the Fox network. Bob and Doug are two beer-swilling, touque-wearing Canadians who hosted their own show (a show-within-a-show on SCTV) called "The Great White North" (and originally called "Kanadian Korner"). They were created in 1980 as a result of a network request for more Canadian content on SCTV. The characters proved so successful that they subsequently released two albums based on the characters and the movie Strange Brew....

Celebrate the 20th Anniversary of 'Doug' With the Best Tribute Videos on the Web

While 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...

Eddie Encounters an Almost Naked Doug on 'Til Death' (VIDEO)

If you've had a roommate, chances are good you've had this happen. You run into the person getting a snack, and he or she is practically naked. Eddie said it best when encountering Doug getting a midnight snack on 'Til Death' (Sun., 7PM ET on Fox). "Wow. So much of you, so close to my food." And you've gotta hand it to Timm Sharp for baring almost all. That takes you-know-what. Watch the video after the jump....

'Bourne' Director Doug Liman to Helm MTV Pilot

In a successful career full of head-scratching moves, Doug Liman's next project almost sounds like a prank -- but it's not. The man who directed 'Swingers,' 'The Bourne Identity,' 'The O.C.' pilot and 'Mr. and Mrs. Smith' has signed on to direct a scripted half-hour comedy-drama pilot for MTV called 'I Just Want My Pants Back.' In addition, he'll helm the pilot for a new reality show on A&E called 'The Unexplained,' which will examine real-life paranormal activity. Here are the reasons it sounds like a joke: First, well, just read it again. Second, MTV hasn't done a project like this since 2002's 'Undressed.' Third, the title sounds like a sequel to 'Dude, Where's My Car?' Fourth, MTV has banked so much on their reality programming, why the change of heart now? Fifth, MTV is notorious for not paying very much, so how are they paying for Liman?...

Doug Savant on 'Desperate Housewives,' 'Melrose Place' and Being Gay on TV

Doug Savant made a name for himself as the openly gay character Matt Fielding on the original 'Melrose Place' from 1992 to 1997. After reportedly leaving when producers backed off from addressing Matt's sexuality, Savant stayed busy with made-for-TV movies and guest spots on shows like 'JAG' and 'The Love Boat: The Next Wave' until he re-emerged, in 2004, as Tom Scavo on 'Desperate Housewives.' Now Savant's promoting '36½ Reasons to Laugh,' a book that helps raise money for underprivileged children who need dental care. He dished with AOL TV on the new 'Melrose,' how Matt Fielding changed television (and his career) -- and addressed those pesky rumors that the ladies of Wisteria Lane don't get along....

We Interrupt Doug Benson's Busy Schedule to Preview Comedy Central's 'Benson Interruption'

Television comedies have had a long and interesting history of sudden interruptions: • A crowd of 9/11 "truthers" crashed the set of HBO's 'Real Time with Bill Maher' and heckled the man live on the air as security crawled to drag them out of the studio. • Some crazed tech junkie interrupted the Chicago airwaves in 1987 with his creepy rendition of Max Headroom being spanked with a fly swatter. • The cast of the long running 'Mystery Science Theater 3000' have talked back to more bad movies than a group of drunken teenagers during a Jim Varney movie marathon. Comedian Doug Benson's 'Interruption,' however, is designed to help more than heckle. The live stage version of the stand-up show featured top name comics like Patton Oswalt and Greg Proops doing their acts while Doug interjected his own observations. Comedy Central has turned Doug's unique comedy concept into a late night stand-up comedy showcase premiering tonight, Sat. Nov. 6 at 12AM ET....

Bob and Doug McKenzie are coming back...animated! - VIDEO

There was talk of this years ago but it looks like Rick Moranis and Dave Thomas are recreating their famous characters from SCTV in animated form. A preview trailer is available after the jump. As someone who owns their comedy album Great White North (pictured) as well as their movie Strange Brew, this is exciting news. The characters are pretty much timeless since their humor never depended on a particular era. They only depended on Canadian clichés. Dave Thomas talks live in the preview and notes that due to their advancing age, Bob and Doug work best nowadays in animated form. Based on the preview, the series looks like it would be perfect for Adult Swim (are you listening Cartoon Network?)....

Doug Benson on Super High Me and his battles with Ant

If you tell Doug Benson that you loved him on VH1's I Love the XX's shows, he'll gladly accept the compliment, even though he's never appeared on any of them. "When people say to me on the street, 'I Love the 90's!', I go, 'I do too!' I don't give them a lecture about how no, I'm on Best Week Ever," he told me a few weeks ago., "because it does all blend together. And as long as they're remembering me, and they have a positive attitude about it, you know, there's no reason for me to be a dick." Benson's not just the "VH1 guy," though. The veteran stand-up reached the finals of season six of Last Comic Standing, after some notoriously unsuccessful attempts. He also made a documentary, Super High Me, which makes its TV debut today (4/20... get it?) on G4 at 10 PM ET. In the movie, Benson makes like Morgan Spurlock, but he substitutes pot for Quarter Pounders. We talked about the movie, if the whole 420 thing is over, and his run-in with Ant on season five of Last Comic Standing....
