"Doc McStuffins" Series Premiere on Disney Junior, Sunday, April 8

Astral TVPlus’ Disney Junior enters the imaginative world of magical stethoscopes and playhouse clinics with the series premiere of Doc McStuffins on Sunday, April 8 at 10 a.m. ET. Showcasing the hallmarks of great Disney storytelling, Doc McStuffins is an animated series about six-year-old Doc McStuffins who can talk to the stuffed animals and toys that she cares for in her backyard clinic.

In the premiere episode, “Out of the Box,” Ty Burrell (Modern Family) guest stars as the voice of Big Jack, a nurturing Jack-in-the-Box, whose son Little Jack is having trouble popping up. When Big Jack asks Doc to take a look, Little Jack is afraid of the doctor and won’t let Doc examine him. Doc diagnoses Little Jack with “Can’t-pop-itis” and eases his fears so that he is back to popping in no time! With the help of Doc and her friends, Little Jack learns an important lesson about not being afraid of the doctor. Following the premiere, Doc McStuffins will air in its regular timeslot on Saturdays and Sundays at 10 a.m. ET. Episodes will also be available on Disney Junior OnDemand starting Friday, April 13.

Each episode features two 11-minute stories in which Doc and her friends diagnose the situation and care for the toy in need. The characters and featured themes are designed to model good health, hygiene, compassion and nurturing. The Hollywood Health & Society division of the Norman Lear Center of the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School serves as health and medical consultant for the series, advising on core health issues relevant to young children and their families.

Created and executive-produced by Humanitas Prize and Emmy Award-winning Chris Nee (writer on Little Bill and producer of Deadliest Catch: Crab Fishing in Alaska) and directed by Emmy Award-winning Norton Virgien (Rugrats), Doc McStuffins is a production of Dublin, Ireland’s Brown Bag Films in association with Disney Channel.

The Doc McStuffins 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 Hollywood Records recording artist and star of the hit Disney Channel series A.N.T. Farm, China Anne McClain.
