Nicktoons Bombshell: Do Doug Funnie and Patti Mayonnaise End Up Together?

Originally posted 08/09/2016 01:15PM

A version of this article originally appeared on EW.com.

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.
