The Doodlebops: Together Forever Tour (which will hit 52 cities across Canada this Spring) kicked off yesterday in Peterborough, Ontario. Together Forever brings you the first look of the new Doodlebops cast:
As a lot of you already know – Lisa, Chad and Jon will NOT be playing the Doodles for this tour. Instead, auditions were held in Toronto and 3 new performers were found to take on the roles as Deedee, Rooney and Moe. The show has also been removed from Playhouse Disney’s morning line-up, but you can still catch it on Kids’ CBC. From what I understand, Lisa, Chad and Jon are still the main cast for television work. The news on the street is that they may be producing an animated Doodlebops series. I’ll post more on that when information is released.
Lisa, Chad and Jon have done an amazing job making the Doodlebops what they are today and have brought together so many people over the years, young and old. They will always be known as the original Doodles, but I hope everyone will give the new performers a chance – the Doodles live on! I’ll be on the lookout for videos from their upcoming shows to share with everyone. I know we are all curious to see if their skills and chemistry match up to our beloved trio. You will definitely want to hit up a concert this spring if you can – Chad McNamara joined the tour as a Choreographer/Assistant Director and has been working hard with the cast!
Now, I’m sure you’re asking “what is the future for DRM.net?” Rather than shutting down – because I’ve put countless hours and so much $$ into making this site what it is – I will welcome the new cast with open arms and continue to follow Lisa, Chad and Jon’s careers on here as well. Trust me, there will be more to come!
I attended the final Doodlebops LIVE! show in Fresno, CA back on October 5th, 2008. I’m going to wait a little longer before I post those pictures….since these are my final exclusive pictures as Lisa, Chad and Jon playing the Doodles. In the meantime, here are my pictures from the York, PA show I attended on September 6th, 2008:
With a lot of help from the lovely Suzanne, DeedeeRooneyMoe.net has been moved over to WordPress. It was time for the site to go through this transformation, and I’m extremely happy with the outcome. I was encountering a few problems with Greymatter (the previous program used for updating) so it became a challenge for me to do updates. With this transfer, it will be much easier to keep the site updated. I’m still in the process of transferring content but for the most part, things are good to go. I’m excited to get started again! If you find any errors, please contact me ASAP and let me know.
Now, before rumors heat up…everyone is fine, I have the reason for the cancellation. The doodles have a show the day before in Oklahoma City, OK. Due to the distance and time, there is no way the crew, cast and equipment can make it to the Ohio in time.
Here are my pictures from the Doodles performance at the Allentown Fair this past Thursday. I didn’t take many (because I was way too excited to see the Doodles :ddsmile:), but I hope you enjoy them! I had a blast at the show, and will actually be seeing them again this Saturday in York, PA….so you know what that means, MORE PICTURES AND VIDEOS TO COME!
8/28/08: Doodlebops at Allentown Fair (Allentown, Pennsylvania)
Here is a cute review from the Allentown show:
“Playhouse Disney stars Deedee, Rooney and Moe Doodle brought their fast-paced and energetic mix of bouncy rock-pop for preschoolers to the Allentown Fair on Thursday in ”Doodlebops Live.”
In a show that was polished, well-choreographed and colorful, every song was met with screams of delight by the audience of preschoolers and their parents, many of whom were wearing pink Dee Dee wigs and holding Doodlebops signs.
Although the show, at 50 minutes, seemed a little truncated, the length was probably geared for its target audience’s short attention spans.”
Sorry I’ve been so behind with updates. I’ve had a mix of computer problems, personal problems and just a busy, hectic schedule. I’m trying to get back on track now, so please bare with me.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO DRM.NET!
I would like to point out that deedeerooneymoe.net recently had it’s 3rd birthday, on July 18th. Looking back, it’s amazing to see how far we’ve come and how much has changed – I still love the Doodles as much as I ever have and I’m so proud of everything that they have accomplished. Also, a huge thanks to everyone who has stuck with us from the beginning and keep the site running strong :)
In other news:
Chad was part of the reality show “How Do You Solve A Problem Like Maria” which searched for the new lead (Maria) in the Sound of Music! The show has found their new Maria but you can still watch videos here!

Pia (wachaaa on the forum) and I have known about this for a couple weeks now and we’ve been counting down to today!
For what you may ask? Well the release of the new Disney Music Block Party CD – similar to the Disneymania series – which the Doodlebops are featured on! Check out their rendition of “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid – I absolutely love it. The CD is available in stores now and you can also download it on iTunes…so make sure you get your copy today!
