FRIENDS CAL Week#3: The One with the Magna Doodle

Chances are, if you’re a fan of the tv show FRIENDS, then you know what a Magna Doodle is. You’ve probably even played with one. According to my research, the Magna Doodle in Joey and Chandler’s apartment didn’t show up until the second half of Season 3. It debuted on the wall in the guys’ apartment and eventually migrated to the door. It even moved over to Monica and Rachel’s apartment when the girls lost their apartment to the guys in a trivia game.


The Magna Doodle turned into somewhat of an Easter Egg for the show FRIENDS. Sometimes the drawing was directly linked to something in the episode it appeared it, sometimes it was a throw back to a previous episode, sometimes it was a tribute to a cast or production member, and sometimes, it was seemingly random. Whatever the case, it is fun to go back and look for the Magna Doodle. Here’s a fun website that chronicles the drawings and writing that appeared on the Magna Doodle.

This week’s panel features the Magna Doodle with one of Joey Tribiani’s memorable quotes, “How you doin’?”
