Doc McStuffins “The Doc Is In” Special Coming To Disney Junior
Now more than ever, kids (and many adults) need to hear Doc McStuffins’s themes of health and wellness. To help spread the word, a brand new special called Doc McStuffins “The Doc Is In” features the beloved Doc McStuffins getting to interact with real kiddos, their families, and medical professionals about the importance of healthy habits. “The Doc Is In” premieres FRIDAY, DEC. 4 (7:30 p.m. EST/PST), on Disney Junior.
The special, set to some of the series’ iconic songs, coincides with National Handwashing Awareness Week. It includes real medical professionals Dr. Myiesha Taylor, MD, founder of the Artemis Medical Society and the “We Are Doc McStuffins” movement, and Mark Lee, RN, who provides tips to preschoolers about ways to prevent spreading germs.
The Peabody Award-winning series inspired a new addition to its award-winning retail line with the Doc McStuffins “Wash Your Hands” Singing Doll from Just Play. Nominated for The Toy Association’s 2021 “Toy of the Year Awards,” the doll comes with an interactive stethoscope, facemask, doctor’s bag, thermometer and otoscope, and sings the popular “Wash Your Hands” song from the series. Coinciding with the doll’s launch, Disney Junior and Just Play will donate funds to Feeding America, which will provide two million meals to families across the country.
Disney Junior and “Doc McStuffins” also recently joined forces with the World Health Organization to amplify the message of thorough hand washing as a way to prevent the spread of germs and disease with a PSA, which was released on Global Handwashing Day (Oct. 15).
“Doc McStuffins” premiered in March 2012 and since then has become one of the most beloved preschool television properties of all time. It tells the story of a young girl who aspires to be a doctor like her mom and communicates with and heals broken toys and stuffed animals. Through Doc and her toy friends, the series models compassion and good health for kids age 2-7 and has been lauded by parents, educators, and healthcare professionals around the world for having a lasting impact on how children see themselves and their future.
“Doc McStuffins” was created by Humanitas Prize and Emmy® Award-winner Chris Nee. The Hollywood Health & Society division of the USC Annenberg Norman Lear Center serves as the series’ health and medical consultants.
