The new Series starring Kiara Muhammad and Loretta Devine will Model Good Health, Hygiene, Compassion and Nurturing
How sweet is this! African American cartoon characters don’t come along everyday. So it’s always a treasure when I see positive cartoons like little Doc Mcstuffins who is the model of what every little girl should aspire to be. She’s a good citizen with a big heart, has a great career and compassion and does good in her community.
As a mom of some darling little girls I welcome Doc Mcstuffins because this type of cartoon is much needed in our community.
Kiara Muhammad and Loretta Devine will star in Disney Junior’s “Doc McStuffins” a new animated series that models good health, hygiene, compassion and nurturing for kids ages two to seven. The series premieres FRIDAY, MARCH 23 on the popular Disney Junior block on Disney Channel (10:00-11:00 a.m., ET/PT) and the new 24-hour Disney Junior channel (4:00-5:00 p.m., ET/PT). Emmy Award-winning Ty Burrell from ABC’s “Modern Family” will guest star in the show’s premiere episode. With warm and fuzzy stories, each featuring an original song, introduces a little girl named Doc who can talk to the stuffed animal and toy world — and they talk to her too, especially when they need her help repairing a stitch or bandaging a “boo-boo”. Along the way, Doc and her friends Stuffy, Lambie, Hallie and Chilly impart helpful tips about self care and care for others, and chase away the worries over visiting the doctor.
Burrell voices Big Jack, a nurturing Jack-in-the-Box, who takes his son Little Jack to get a check-up from Doc in the first story of the premiere episode titled “Out of the Box.” In the second story, Doc helps her little brother Donny’s toy race car recharge in “Rundown Race Car.”
The series voice cast includes: Kiara Muhammad as Doc; Loretta Devine as Hallie; Lara Jill Miller as Lambie; Robbie Rist as Stuffy;Jess Harnell as Chilly; Jaden Betts as Donny McStuffins; Kim Brooks as Mom McStuffins; and Gary Anthony Williams as Dad McStuffins. The series’ theme song is performed by the star of Disney Channel’s hit series “A.N.T. Farm” and Hollywood Records recording artist, China Anne McClain.
The premiere of “Doc McStuffins” on Friday, March 23 will be simulcast on Disney Channel’s mobile providers Sprint TV and MobiTV and be available immediately thereafter on DisneyJunior.com and Disney Channel mobile VOD. The full episodes will also be available on iTunes and Xbox Live beginning Saturday, March 24.

I really love to watch animated movies and especially Disney series even at this age. I will surely watch this cartoon as it seems really interested. My little one will also be happy to join me in watching this series. 🙂
Really found this post interesting! I’ll be pinning this on pinterest!
Thank you for your awesome post here! I think most kids and parents want to go to see Diesneyland in person…
Animated series..something I am always crazy about. It is my childhood passion to watch cartoon or animated movies or series and still I can’t leave this habit of missing any of my favorite series. Hope I grow up. 😉
My 4 1/2 and almost 3 year old boys love this new show. My oldest, Daniel, is very sensitive when he hears an ambulance and thinks someone is hurt or sees someone in the grocery store with a cast on. On both occasions, he cried. Now just 6 months later, I’m glad this show has come along and he can watch it. It shows a kind way of healing (explaining everything) and both boys really enjoy the music.
Thanks Christine for sharing. And I agree. A show like this will truly help kids understand what goes on when something happens to them and it’s not a scary thing when they get fixed up. Doctors are “safe” and there to help!
Thanks Juliette. I don’t think any of us will truly “grow up” 🙂
How awesome that Disney has finally created an animated show with a black main character! I love it. We are white, my daughter loves it (new favorite show), and I’m thrilled that she recognizes that the little girl is not white!
I’m surprised I heard noting about this, it’s always good to see more black cartoons.
I have a 3yr old with a wonderful imagination. We got her a doctor costume for Christmas. When she watches the show, she’d put on her dr coat and say “I have a diagnosis!” I love the show it’s educational and has a positive role model to look up to and aspire to be.
