Double Decker! Doug & Kirill: Extra is, as the title states, an extra addition to the main series, which is titled (you guessed it!) Double Decker! Doug & Kirill. While canon, these 3 new episodes are not at all necessary to get the full story out of the main series. However, if you become invested in the colorful cast of characters throughout the main series, these extra episodes are well worth the time.
The plot of these episodes are not directly related to each other as they take place during different points throughout the main series, with the final of the 3 acting as an
epilogue of sorts to the main series (an obligatory hot springs episode, no less). Although, just watching all of them after the main 13 episode run is certainly an option and doesn’t break any sequencing or immersion.
Given the nature of these episodes, nothing of real importance happens, but instead focuses on character interactions and minor trivia about them. In my opinion, this is where Double Decker: Doug & Kirill shines brightest, not on the story itself, but its entertaining characters and their diverse personalities leading to a variety of amusing situations, and the Extra episodes definitely deliver on that.
So, is Double Decker! Doug & Kirill: Extra worth watching?
If you enjoyed its parent series and are itching for more, then it is definitely worth watching. It preserves all the charm and humor from the original and adds more scenarios to showcase the characters’ personalities and chemistry with each other.
To wrap things up, Double Decker! Doug & Kirill: Extra is an excellent companion piece to the original 13 episode run, which withholds and strengthens the already fun cast of characters.
