Superstar Television Doug Rocks, which opened at the Disney MGM Studios on May 1st 1989, has been replaced by a new show featuring the 12-year old animated hero of the Doug series.
In the original Superstar Television, guests had the chance to play an established part in a few scenes from a television programme. The would-be actors usually being picked from the people at the front of the theater, which seats 1,000 people.
While the rest of the audience settles down to the performance, those selected to take part were taken backstage to be made-up, and get into their costumes. During the show, the selected actors, play in front of blue screens, with their actions then being merged in with the original scene using the chroma-key method.
Scenes include the part of Al Borlund opposite Tim Taylor in Home Improvement, and four guests appearing opposite Woody, Norm and Cliff from Cheers, whilst younger actors get to appear in an episode of Gilligan's Island.
In total the sho took around 30-minutes from star to finish, and was presented in conjunction with Sony.
