I had nothing against this one but just thought it was strange.

I loved danger mouse but looking back it has not aged well. Count Duckula was a bit weird.

"The Littles" didn't have much for production values. Dinky Little getting sauced in "A Little Drunk" and operating the family's motor vehicle should be a lesson in good passage to us all.

Even Henson himself admitted Little Muppet Monsters wasn't good. Of course, he was also busy making Labyrinth at that time, in addition to Sesame Street, plus the final season of Fraggle Rock being in production then.

Doug's creator, Jim Jinkins, has also admitted that he was very hands-off with the Disney series in comparison to the Nickelodeon series, although the character and plot changes in the Disney version that so many of the Nick series fans hated (Doug getting a baby sister, Roger becoming rich, Patti Mayonnaise getting a new hairstyle and switching from a skirt to pants, etc.) were indeed his idea and not Disney's. And of course Doug and Roger both got new voices due to Billy West refusing to participate in the Disney series. Nevertheless, Jinkins himself agrees the Nickelodeon episodes were better.

I always liked Mr.Dink and Mayor Robert Bob White.
