Summary

Doodlez is about Dood, a small boy who is a doodle. Dood gets himself in and out of various Duck Amuck-esque situations, with the aid of Hand, a disembodied hand that uses his pencil to draw (sometimes) helpful things onto the screen for Dood's use, such as helping Dood cheat in a skating race with his rival by drawing a booster behind Dood. Situations include girl troubles, becoming a werewolf, being stuck in a picture frame, watering a sunflower, or traveling inside a giant beast to get his lollipop out of its stomach, and many other situations. There was also one episode done without Hand or his pencil but on a computer, and Cursor (See One-Time Characters below) stood in for Hand. Dood is usually angry at the end of the cartoon, because that it has to end so early. There is never any spoken dialogue, but sometimes the characters communicate through gibberish and Dood has a chipmunk laugh in some episodes. The end of a cartoon always shows the word “fin” (French for “The End”) appearing somewhere.

Major Characters

  • Dood: The main character who is usually the first object to be drawn.
  • Hand: The disembodied hand that holds the pencil and who draws Dood's environment.
