Chika chika chika bop paaaaaa

Oh, sorry, I was just typing out the theme from the classic Nicktoon Doug. Remember Doug? It was that show about a boring middle schooler, which was somehow really compelling. 

Well, one of the things that gave that show its charms was the sound effects. From the scatty theme song to all those nasally characters, Doug was just as well known for its sound as its look. 

Great Big Story sat down with the man behind it all. Fred Newman is a voice over artist who made all those sounds with his mouth. He asl odid voices for Harry and the HndersonsWho Framed Roger Rabbit?, and, everybody's favorite movie, Gremlins


So if you ever watched Doug and wanted to know how all those sounds were made, this is the video for you.
