Disney Junior Presents
"Doc McStuffins" on Disney Channel
Doc is a young girl who is the "Doctor Doolittle" for toys. Doc's backyard playhouse becomes her clinic where she uses her special ability to communicate with toy friends to help them when they have physical or emotional bangs and bruises.
We got a sneak peek when we attended a media preview and watched a few "Doc McStuffins" episodes. This show is going to be a huge success for Disney Junior. There are so many important elements that this show touches on. Most importantly for us is having a girl as the lead character who is smart, a problem solver and playing a doctor.
Not only are we Disney Sisters, but we are all moms. Being mothers we know how many trips that we make to the Doctor's offices, especially with young kids. This show was created when Chris Nee Creator/Executive Producer, used her own experience as a mother whose son developed a severe asthma condition when he was two years old. She realized how intimidating and scary going to the Doctor can be for children. She felt that there were a number of shows that address the fears of children starting school, or going to a new school, but none that covered the fears about going to the Doctor.
We talked to Disney Channel Executives, the Creator of the show, and the voice cast.
What a lovely group of people!
