Doug Easter Egg - Two Eggs

In the episode about the town changing all the time, Doug's mom says something about Doug's old friends whos names were Arthur and Buster. These are the names of the 2 main characters in the children's show arthur.

Another eggs that is in every episode is that Doug lives on Jumbo Street. The name of the company that makes the Doug series is called Jumbo Productions. Coincidence? I think not.

Actually, Jumbo Pictures is the original production company of "Doug." Jim Jinkins, created the show and started the company with the help of Nickelodeon. In the forth season "Doug" became a co-production with the French company Canal+. It was cancelled and shelved for several years until the former president of Nickelodeon, Jerry Laybourn, left Nickelodeon for Disney. Once there she convinced Disney to by the rights for "Doug" as well as Jim Jinkin's company Jumbo Pictures. Jumbo has since gone on to produce shows like "P B & J" and "101 Dalmations" for Disney. How do I know this? I worked for Jumbo Pictures on the "Doug" series when it was on Nickelodeon. Check out "Doug's Babysitter," I wrote it.

you mentioned about doug living on Jumbo Street...well yes that one has no real meaning at all cause he has always lived at 21 Jumbo Street. but in the episode where he is mad at skeeter when he is cleaning out his room of all the stuff that reminds him of his brainy buddy...on the foot of his bed is a poster that says "Jumbo Pictures" on it along with their logo(an egg). i know that jumbo pictures didn't own Doug when it first came out...but maybe the deal was bein kicked around at the time of this episode.

I know distinctly that at the end of each episode of Doug, it would say Clasky-Csupo, but it would also say "Jumbo Pictures" with an egg.

Sorry, but your second egg is just a coincidence. Doug lived on Jumbo street when the show was on Nickelodeon. At that time it was produced and owned by Klasky-Csupo. After its run on Nick, it was bought by Jumbo and aired on ABC.

Um, first off, Klasky-Csupo has never had ANYTHING to do with Doug, EVER. Whoever mentioned Klasky-Csupo is wrong. Also, Jumbo Pictures produced both Nickelodeon's AND ABC's versions of the show, in association with Nickelodeon(1991-1994) and Disney (1996-1999). So there.

just spit-balling here, but firedrum mentioned the address being 21 Jumbo Street which may be a reference to Johnny Depp fame starter and '90s hit tv cop drama 21 Jump Street. what do they have in common? were they rivals. no clue

Klasky-Csupo never laid a finger on this series. Just to clarify because there are still people who think they did make it.

This egg has been discussed in the "Arthur" online community. The reason for this (the first egg), is that Joe Fallon is a major writer for both "Arthur" and "Doug." I have not seen the episode in question, therefore I can only assume that the particular episode being talked about was one that was created after "Arthur" came on the air. (And had already built up something of a following, else, who would recognize it, unless they were looking back.)

ACTUALLY they should have elaborated and said that this was on the new Doug, not the Nick one. This is about the Disney one and Arthur was around then on TV. In addition to Jumbo, in one episode, maybe others, another street in doug's town is Mumbo street, mumbo jumbo.

Ken Scarborough and Joe Fallon both worked on "Doug" and "Arthur" simultaneously. The reference was an in-joke for the eagle-eared.

Is Doug's little sibling(dirtbike) a boy or a girl? This is $40 question.

No one thinks it's just a nod to "21 Jump Street", that show from the 80s with Johnny Depp? =)

Was Arthur even around then? Doug was around from 1991-93 then came back in 97. I think that episode with Arthur and Buster was when I was a kid and watched the Nickelodeon Doug reruns about 4-5 yrs ago.

Klasky-Csupo actually produces many things, in the last 5 days I've probably seen it (the logo) at the end of shows about 20 times.

Hey CoreDump, I think you're right, Arthur came out in like 97, which wasn't even close to the time that that episode was shown.
