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

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.

The new State DVD: You'll wanna dip your balls in it!

by Danny Gallagher, posted Jul 14th 2009 3:05PM
Louie, the guy who wants to dip his balls in it, from MTV's TV bloggers get a lot of free DVDs to review. They range from the dull and drab to titles that some people would run over someone on the way to the movie store to get.

It's very rare, however, for anyone to get their grubby little hands on a title powerful enough to reverse the polarity of the universe and restore order to chaos. I managed to score that very thing a week before anyone could and I didn't have to sell my soul, my first-born child or any of my bodily objects to get it.

It's the New Zoo Revue, coming right at you! - VIDEO

New Zoo RevueThose of you of a certain age - and by certain age I mean middle-aged or at least approaching middle age - will find that this video brings about a flood of memories.

Who remembers The New Zoo Revue? It was one of my regular early morning shows when I was a kid, along with Jabberwocky. It was about a small town inhabited by a giant talking frog named Freddie, a giant talking owl named Charlie, and a giant talking hippo named Henrietta. There were also humans that talked, Doug and Emmy Jo, but they were regular size.

Looking back, it's a very surreal, 70s educational show, but I guess it appealed to me when I was a kid. It went off the air in 1975, but before it did, the cast decided to have a little fun. In this outtake after the jump, things get a little raunchy. It's like they're saying, oh, the hell with it, this gig isn't going to last anyway. Needless to say, it's NSFW, even if the words are coming out of giant animals.

(As a bonus, here's another clip, featuring Mr. Dingle. Can you tell which future game show host that is?)

Don't sell your kidneys for karma

American InventorIs that what the guy on American Inventor said last night, that he put so much passion and energy into his invention (a portable coffee cup/grinder thing) that he sold his kidney? Or donated his kidney? And that he had to do it because it was "karma?" I'm not quite sure exactly how/why he did it (except that he wanted to be a hero to his son), but I think this is something none of us should do. Don't sell your kidneys for karma.

Also: don't sell your feet for food, don't sell your hands for a house, and don't sell your penis for a Porsche.
