The thing I loved most about Doug
were the many different personas he was able to become through out the series.
Just like every other kid, when faced with a tough problem in life, Doug would
imagine himself as a super hero or a secret agent to deal with his problems.
Through the strengths and weaknesses of his character, Doug would discover the
real life answer to his real life problem. If only we could all do this,
our problems would be solved so much easier. You know why it doesn't work,
because kids pick Superman... Psh, Superman!? That's just cheating.
Jack Bandit -
Wah na naaaa... Jack!... Bandit! Believe it or not this was Doug's first
alternate persona. Making his grand appearance in only the second episode
of the series, Jack Bandit makes a run from the cops after a volcano blew up the
science room. That's right, Doug's science project volcano exploded!
Actually it didn't, it was just a rumor that probably all leads back to Roger
(what a Jerk). As far as I am aware this was Jack Bandits first and only
appearance, but oh how it was a memorable one. One more time... Wah na
naaaa... Jack!... Bandit!
- One of Doug's lesser known characters, The Chameleon, is a master of disguise
and appears in episode 14. Doug must take up the identity of The Chameleon
to discover who stole Beebe's new radio. If he fails, Mr. Bone will give
the entire class detention! With such consequences on the line, was The
Chameleon able to succeed? I'm not entirely sure, I don't remember...
something to do with Skeeter having the radio in the end...
Smash Adams -
This is obviously a take on the character of James Bond. Smash Adams is a
smooth secret agent, with expertise in getting back drawings of teachers,
recovering artwork created by dogs and raccoons, and dealing with evil dentists!
That guy makes it look so easy, and with a name like Smash Adams, how can you go
wrong? Ohhhh Smash!
Yes! Finally! My favorite... Quail-Man! The superhero that
looks like he fell into a laundry basket! He is a man's man! So
secure in himself he wears the belt on his forehead and his underwear on the
outside! Quail-Man and his faithful companion Quail-Dog reign supreme in
the superhero world of Doug. He also battles the greatest villains, such
as Dr. Klotzenstein (not to mention his mindless minions created from the
townsfolk eating Zombie Chips), The Rulemeister, RoboBone, and The Wacky
Weatherman (with the help of Silver Skeeter!). Quail-Man was also a grand
role-model, and always told the kids to eat their beets, "...They're natures
candy you know!" Quail-Man.. Awaaaaaaaaaaay!
