The Dubba Dubba Twins (or Dubba Twins) were spokesmodels for WTTO, an affiliate of the WB Network in Birmingham called "WB21" from 1987 to 2006. The station became a CW affiliate and the "Twins" were known simply as 21's Twins.

Jennifer & Shelly Freeman

Jennifer Freeman Boyd and Shelly Freeman Carter (born 1980) were the original Dubba Dubba Twins from 1998, when WTTO joined the WB Network, until 2005.

The Freemans, daughters of homebuilder John O. Freeman, Jr, graduated from Hoover High School in 1999, and both graduated from the University of Alabama in 2003 with degrees in broadcast journalism. They are both married to former roommates who both played baseball for the Crimson Tide. Jennifer married second baseman Brent Boyd, in September 2003, while Shelly married pitcher Mark Carter, Jr., in January 2004.

In addition to filming promotional spots and making personal appearances, the twins worked on the air as entertainment reporters after WTTO pioneered a news program in 2003. The twins handled the "Double Takes" segment of the "WB 21 News at Nine" until 2005. The segment was syndicated to Nashville's WB 58 and the Freemans also did promotions for that station.

Jennifer and Shelly currently reside with their families in Baldwin County. They staff the real estate sales office for Bon Secour Village, for which their father was the homebuilder. They also still do occasional promotions for the Birmingham station.

Erica & Monica Stacy

Erica and Monica Stacy (born July 28, 1988) of Centreville were hired in October, 2005 to replace the Freemans. WTTO General Manager Scott Campbell traveled to Bibb County High School to give them the news.

In September, 2006 the WB Network merged with UPN to become the CW Network, and the Stacys were known as 21's Twins.
