Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut. Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks.

After viewing this fan made Doug trailer of the popular 90’s cartoon, I don’t see how Nickelodeon could resist the opportunity to make a real life Doug movie! Despite the fact that Doug was a quirky animated series if you look beneath the surface there really were a lot of dramatic issues brought to the forefront. This trailer brought to us by Dr. Cool Sex does an incredible job of transferring these characters to life and in a strange way causing us to feel for them and what they’re going through; everything from relationship issues to finding your place in the world to friendships. The Dr. Cool Sex gang featured all the classic characters like Patti, Skeeter and Roger and did an impecable job at paying attention to detail; they even had a Honker Burger! Nickelodeon was by far superior with its programming in the 90’s and will always have a special place in my heart as I’m sure it does for you all too! Check out the trailer here and prepare to be singing”Killer Tofu” to yourself afterwards!
