Doodlez is a Canadian series of animated shorts produced for television by Cellar Door Productions, animated by Trapeze Animation Studios, which started airing on Teletoon in 2002.[3] It was seen on Nicktoons Network.


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 against his rival by drawing a booster behind Dood. Otherwise, however, Hand draws objects or people that complicate the situation and/or make things worse for Dood. Situations include girl troubles, becoming a werewolf, being stuck in a picture frame, watering a sunflower, 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, likely because it has to end so early. There is never any spoken dialogue, but sometimes the characters communicate through gibberish and Dood sometimes has a chipmunk laugh. The end of a cartoon always shows the word “fin” (French for “the end”) appearing somewhere.

Television series

In 2007, Teletoon announced a Doodlez television series to be released soon. Either the studio cancelled the production, or they are still in production. An opening for the show was released on KidMango along with a bit of the classic shorts. However, they do not show the shorts anymore.
