New Doc on the Block!

If you've been a reader for quite some time, then you would know that our living room telly is on Disney Junior all the time - well, unless of course, the little boy is asleep or playing outdoors, and A takes advantage of it to catch her favorite shows.

RL is a Disney Junior addict. Please don't give me the lecture on kids being couch potatoes, because my son does have other activities aside from sitting in front of the television. But whenever he does get his turn in front of the boob tube, it's Channel 49* (or four-nine as RL would put it) or nothing.

My little boy loves all the shows on Disney Junior - Special Agent Oso, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Timmy Time, Handy Manny, Chuggington, Tayo, Chiro, Pororo, etc. His favorite of the month is the new animated Bananas in Pyjamas series. So when Momma got an invite to catch Disney Junior's media launch for their newest show, Doc McStuffins, RL was most excited!

If you haven't caught any of the previews and commercials on Disney Junior, then let me introduce you to Dottie "Doc" McStuffins - a 6-year old "toy doctor" with a compassionate heart and a knack for "healing" toys and stuffed animals around her neighborhood.

Dottie aka Doc McStuffins, the 6-year old toy doctor of Disney Junior's newest TV show!
Dottie and her toy friends - Stuffy,
Lambie, Hallie and Chilly!
RL loves the idea that Doc McStuffins has the ability to talk to her toys (he's been secretly wishing his toys could talk back to him as well, LOL!). Dottie's magical world comes to life when she puts on her stethoscope! Her playhouse becomes her doctor's clinic for toys, and she is assisted by her trusted toy friends - Stuffy, an overly proud stuffed dragon; Lambie, a stuffed lamb who loves to cuddle; Hallie, a jolly hippo receptionist; and Chilly, a hypochondriac stuffed snowman.

I love the concept of Doc McStuffins! The creator - Emmy-winning writer and producer, Chris Nee (Blues Clues, Little Bill, Gaspard and Lisa, Higglytown Heroes, Johnny and the Sprites and many more!), says the show came about when she finally became a mom. Her son had asthma and had to take many trips to see the doctor. Having worked for Children's Television for the past 15 years, Nee realized she had the power to create a TV show to help her son feel a little more at ease when taking those trips to the doctor. Thus, Doc McStuffins was born.

Now on its second season in the US, Doc McStuffins finally premieres on Disney Junior Asia (and the Philippines!) on July 9! The show puts an animated, kid-friendly twist to visiting the doctor and having check-ups. It also puts emphasis on healthy living and encourages young ones to practice simple hygiene habits.

The Doc is in! Doc McStuffins makes visiting the doctor fun and safe!
Each episode of Doc McStuffins includes original songs sung by the characters. Doc also gives health advice to viewers at the end of each show. This new Disney Junior original series will teach young kids important values, such as compassion for others and lending a helping hand to anyone who needs it.

My kids and I are excited that Doc McStuffins will finally air on Disney Junior Asia. So mark your calendars! Doc McStuffins. July 9. 9:30am. Only on Disney Junior.
