Simple animation and charming storytelling mark this enjoyable series that encourages kids to look at the world from different perspectives. As Dougie dons disguises, he assumes the characteristics of the people, animals, and objects he becomes, immersing himself and his viewers in a entirely new environment. In so doing, he learns about a variety of topics, tries his hand at new jobs, and always lends a helping hand to the new friends he meets.

Dougie in Disguise keeps preschoolers engaged through interactions that test their critical-thinking skills and encourages them to recall details about the story, similar to the format of Dora the Explorer. With excellent examples of friendship throughout and Dougie's boundless curiosity and sense of adventure, this fun series has much to offer its young viewers.
