The original airing of "Doug's Chubby Buddy" ended with the voice of Patti giving information about contact places for eating disorders (bulimia, anorexia, etc). Versions of this episode on Toon Disney and the Disney Channel dubbed that part over with Roger and Skeeter arguing and cut the scene short with a long silence and a blackout. See more »
A step down from the original cartoon, but is still watchable
When I first heard that a new "Doug" was going to be aired on T.V., I knew that I would be in for trouble. What made the situation even worse, is that Disney is now running things. So much for good old Doug, I thought. I tried to put off watching this show for as long as could, but I found the temptation to finally view it in its entirety. To my surprise, it is definitely not as stupid as I thought it would be. Sure, some of the voices are different, but I'm not holding that against it. The setting is different too, now that Doug is in middle school. They are now going through many of the things teenagers go through too. It seems that Doug's interest in Patty Mayonnaise has been amplified x10, Skeeter is acting normal, Roger is no longer the jerk he used to be, Chalky has become too much of a jock, and Beebe is turning into a real snob. But of course, they've aged since the show was in its prime so one could expect some change.
The biggest problem "Brand Spanking New! Doug" suffers from is that it's just gotten too kiddish. People who liked the original "Doug" cartoons may be disappointed if they watch this show because it just may no longer be suited for them.
All in all, I given "Brand Spanking New! Doug" a 2 1/2 out of 5.
