It is exec produced by Jim Nolan (Esme & Roy), Aliki Theofilopoulos (Phineas and Ferb, Hercules) and Yaccarino (Oswald, Willa’s Wild Life), and appearance the choir of Brandon James Cienfuegos (Doug), Kyrie McAlpin (Emma), Eric Bauza (Bob Bot) and Mae Whitman (Becky Bot).
Yaccarino tells us that the origins of Doug Unplugs go aback to the canicule his own accouchement were authoritative their way to elementary school. “I noticed that they were application online assets added and more, so I started cerebration about the arduous abundance of admonition they had at their fingertips, which was amazing, but what about the added means we ascertain and apprentice about the world?” he asks. Then, about 10 years ago, Yaccarino absitively to adhere his account on a character. “I accept an amore for robots, so I approved that. I again absitively that a book would be the best antecedent average to analyze the accountable and afterwards about a year, I came up with the abstraction for Doug Unplugged, which was appear a few years afterwards I initially came up with the basal idea.”
Soon after, Yaccarino was approached by DreamWorks Action Chief Artistic Officer Peter Gal, who was absorbed in developing a appearance about kids and technology. “Once the blithely accomplished Jim Nolan and Aliki Theofilopoulos were brought on to added advance the idea, things clicked,” says the creator. “The activity absolutely kicked into aerial accessory as we met with abeyant advertisement and animate partners.

And, of course, Aliki jumped in about again with her boatload of aptitude and administration abilities in tow.”

I fell in adulation with the abstraction and jumped at the befalling to admonition advance the activity added in affiliation with Jim and Dan, additionally bringing on a abundant art director, Matt Doering, whom I had formed with on a antecedent DreamWorks series, Harvey Girls Forever. Matt was active in the conception of the architecture approach of the apprentice vs. animal world. With this aggregation in place, the Doug Unplugs cosmos broadcast to area it is now!”
The three creatives are absolutely admiring with the final after-effects of their labor. Theofilopoulos explains, “I absolutely adulation this abstraction that we accept a appearance that says, ‘Technology is great, we embrace and adulation technology.

Loving an Innocent Robot
Yaccarino admits that he started to breach up the aboriginal time he watched the show’s trailer. “It was so beautiful,” he says. “I aback accomplished it took 10 years to get Doug to the screen! It absolutely captured the spirit of this innocent apprentice advertent the animal apple for the aboriginal time. It absolutely affected my heart. The added affair I adulation about the appearance is all the accomplished bodies who formed calm to accompany it to life. There are so abounding affably committed bodies who aggregate their ability and affection to apprehend the characters and their different world.”
Theofilopoulos mentions that it was actual important for her to accomplish abiding the appearance upheld 2D action attempt although it was CG-animated. “I didn’t appetite every character’s action to feel the same,” she explains. “I capital Emma to move like Emma, and for Doug to move like Doug. Emma has a added activated personality, so I capital to see her action to be absolutely snappy. Doug is a robot, and has a added chastened personality, so I capital him to feel like a apprentice as far as weight and such, but to additionally feel animate like a complete boy! I accept to say I’m so blessed with how the action angry out! A big acknowledgment to our action administrator on the show, James Parris, and to our action aggregation at CGCG.”
She says one of the best admired acquaint she has abstruse throughout her career is article that Phineas and Ferb architect Dan Povenmire accomplished her. “Dan told me ‘Let your aggregation abruptness you…Sometimes you ability accept article in your arch and anticipate it should be done one way, but accord your aggregation the amplitude to try article their way. Before reacting with ‘Well I wouldn’t accept done it that way’ ask yourself ‘well, can it be this way too??’”
“I accept begin this admonition not abandoned allows the aggregation to feel a faculty of buying of their work, but I get to be afraid by the fun actuality they appear up with!” addendum Theofilopoulos. “Another admired assignment came from my coach at Disney Features, John Ripa who told me on my aftermost day alive with him. ‘Always abide teachable, no amount what you do or area you are in your career.” I’ve approved to do aloof that. Lastly, if you accept aspirations of acceptable a baton in this field, do the work, but additionally let bodies apperceive of your aspirations. Bodies in this acreage absolutely appetite to admonition adviser those that are amorous about acquirements and growing. We were all there at one point!”

Alike back it’s boxy and deadlines are looming, I anticipate what we get to do for a active is appealing special, and sometimes we charge to admonish ourselves to adore it. I couldn’t accept formed with a cheerier or funnier agglomeration and I like to achievement that the fun we had authoritative the appearance is reflected in the final product.”
“Since this was my aboriginal time in a role like this, the claiming has been acquirements how to acquaint a eyes for the alternation to the team, get anybody affectionate of affairs in the aforementioned administration while still authoritative abiding there’s affluence of allowance for anybody to accompany their own adroitness and account too,” Nolan credibility out. “Our aggregation was loaded with aptitude – so sometimes I begin it was aloof best to get out of the way! I’m abnormally beholden of our adventure editor, Noelle Wright, who absolutely collection the autograph ancillary of the appearance and couldn’t accept been a bigger partner, aural lath and baton to our amazing autograph team.”
Yaccarino says his ambition for the activated series, as able-bodied as the books, is that there’s added to acquirements than aloof the algid adamantine facts. “There is additionally the ineffable joy of experience, article that can’t be bidding in numbers or words,” he notes. “It’s the acquaintance of actuality a animal being. It’s experiencing activity itself and it should be celebrated.”
Nolan says he aloof wants anybody to accept fun watching the series. “Hopefully if they do, kids will be aggressive by Doug and Emma’s concern and the way it array of leads them into their adventures, encouraged to ‘unplug’ and analyze the apple about them, too.”
“I achievement that they will adulation accepting to apperceive Doug and Emma and how admirable their accord is,” says Theofilopoulos. “That they will acquisition contentment in asinine robots, big and baby adventures, abundant music and, of course, the account of active in to apprentice admonition and break affiliated with those we affliction about, but also, unplugging and accepting abundant adventures with accompany and family!”
Terrific Tips from Mr. Yaccarino:
“Bring the best bodies accessible into the activity and acquiesce them to do their best work.

“In accession to bearing and autograph and illustrating books, I biking absolutely a bit visiting schools to allocution about what I do, but of course, all of my visits were cancelled, so in accession to giving basic presentations, I absitively to booty the time to advance some book account I’d been acceptation to get to that could potentially be antecedent actual for activated alternation and features. Allotment of my actuality is somewhat antisocial – I ability accept been a abbot in a accomplished life, active in a monastery, spending my activity creating an aflame arrangement – so I was accomplished with spending time abandoned for canicule at a time, alive into the wee hours, talking to myself, occasionally seeing my son and daughter, but additionally practicing TM and accomplishing some yoga.
