Plot Synopsis

Doc McStuffins is a nurturing six-year-old girl who can talk to stuffed animals in her playhouse clinic, where she cares for and heals her friends' and neighbors' toys while teaching them -- and young viewers -- about health and wellness. When Doc puts on her stethoscope, something magical happens; toys, dolls and stuffed animals come to life and she can communicate with all of them. But when somebody else approaches, Doc just has to say "Toys, go stuffed!" for her stuffed friends to go lifeless, keeping Doc's abilities a secret -- even from her little brother, Donny. Assisting Doc at the clinic are her much-loved stuffed animal friends: Stuffy, an exceedingly proud dragon; Lambie, her cuddly best friend; Hallie, a jolly and caring hippo nurse; Squeakers, an alarmist squeaky fish toy; and Chilly, a snowman who spends a lot of time getting check-ups at the clinic. Whether it's a case of loose stitching, low batteries or a blow-up toy who has sprung a leak, Doc and her pals are there to lend a helping hand, while imparting to young viewers the importance of taking care of oneself and others. Each episode features two 11-minute stories with each episode featuring an original song that conveys the health lesson that Doc and her friends learn that day. Some of the song titles include "Be Good to Your Tummy," "Get Your Sleep On" and "Wash Your Hands." In every episode, Doc and her helpers also sing "The Check-Up Song," an upbeat tune that is intended to assist parents in easing their child's fears of getting a check-up, as well as the "I Feel Better" song once the issue has been resolved for the "patient." Disney aired a sneak-peek episode of this series on Saturday, March 17, 2012 at 8:45am ET, in anticipation of the official series premiere on Friday, March 23, 2012 -- the same day that Disney's new 24-hour network, Disney Junior, launched.
