Doc McStuffins is an animated children's television series produced by Brown Bag Films. It was created and executive produced by Humanitas Prize and Emmy Award-winner Chris Nee and premiered on March 23, 2012 on Disney Channel and Disney Junior.[1][2] The series is about a six-year-old girl who can "fix" toys, with a little help from her stuffed animal friends.

The series received positive reviews due to the show's concept and the main character, on its portrayal about African-Americans in a Disney series. Chris Nee describes the series as "Cheers for Preschoolers".[3]

Premise[edit]

The series chronicles a six-year-old girl named Dottie "Doc" McStuffins who, one day, decides she wants to become a doctor like her mother. She pretends to be a doctor by fixing toys and dolls. When she puts on her stethoscope, toys, dolls, and stuffed animals magically come to life and she can communicate with them. With a little help from her stuffed animal friends - Stuffy, Hallie, Lambie and Chilly - Doc helps toys "feel better" by giving them check-ups and diagnosing their illnesses with "The Big Book of Boo Boos". Each 11-minute episode includes original songs, such as "Time for Your Check-Up", "I Feel Better" and introducing in season 2, "Tell Me What's Wrong". There is also an additional song about things you must do during a doctor's check-up. During ending credits in Season 1, Doc gives advice to viewers about staying healthy.

Reception[edit]

The series received positive reviews and criticisms after its release. Kia Morgan Smith of Cincomom.com said that "It truly warmed my heart and almost brought tears to my eyes when my 8-year-old, Mikaela, saw ‘Doc McStuffins’ for the first time and said, 'Wow, mommy — she’s brown,'"[7] Myiesha Taylor of CoilyEmbrace.com said that "This program featuring a little African-American girl and her family is crucial to changing the future of this nation." Taylor also applauded the concept of its portrayal of a young black girl who wishes to follow in the footsteps of her mother as a doctor as the lead character, that inspired her to collect pictures of 131 doctors — all women of color — and publish a collage online under the heading, 'We Are Doc McStuffins.'"[8]

The program is also a ratings hit on Disney Junior. The series premiere attracted 1.08 million children ages 2 to 5, and the show has attracted an average of 918,000 viewers in the same demographic, leading AdWeek magazine to dub the show an "improbable ratings juggernaut".[9] It has also attracted large amounts of positive attention for older males as well. The series is also a huge cultural impact, generating loud applause on parent blogs, Facebook and even in academia for its positive vocational message for African-American girls.
