Rugrats, Doug and The Ren & Stimpy Show Premiered 25 Years Ago: 15 Things You Didn't Know About These Groundbreaking Series
Originally posted 08/10/2016 06:25PM
Twenty-five years ago Thursday, Rugrats, Doug and The Ren & Stimpy Show premiered on Nickelodeon. It's hard to believe, but just seven years prior, the network was a huge failure, operating at a $10 million loss in 1984. By 1985, they'd launched Nick at Nite; in 1988, the Kids' Choice Awards and Nick Jr.

On Monday, news broke about all about the possibilities for rebooting the original Nicktoons. Rugrats folks are in. Ren & Stimpy, not quite. And then there's Doug. Both the character Doug and the eponymous series itself have always seemed to exist at the whims of other, more powerful people – and as such, series creator Jim Jinkins says the show's current rights-holder, Disney, doesn't seem to have much interest in bringing Doug back for more Bluffington bliss.
But Jinkins certainly hopes Disney changes its mind, and he's fully prepared for when they do. Short of writing a full screenplay for a Doug follow-up, he's written assorted stories and scenes that would get viewers up to date with what Doug Funnie has been up to all these years later. "I've written the scene," Jinkins tells Entertainment Weekly, referring to one major moment that would answer the question Jinkins' is constantly asked – whether Doug and his lifelong crush, Patti, end up together.
