If you have children (or nieces, nephews or grandchildren), you may have come across “Doc McStuffins,” a children’s cartoon on Disney Junior that features a 6-year-old girl who acts as veterinarian to her toys and stuffed animals – and treats them in her playhouse clinic.
Now Doc McStuffins is moving her practice to her backyard where she’ll continue to treat the toys and stuffed animals child viewers have grown to love. “Doc McStuffins: Pet Vet” is a multi-episode story presented in collaboration with Solid Gold Holistic Pet, Nationwide and the ASPCA, zaptoit.com reports. The show, geared toward kids aged 2 to 7 (though adults – especially those in veterinary medicine – will probably enjoy it too), will begin airing on the Disney Channel and WATCH Disney Junior on Friday, August 14, 2015 at 9 a.m. EST/PST. The Disney Channel, Disney Junior and WATCH Disney Junior will also feature episodes of “Doc McStuffins.”
Episodes will include “Fetchin’ Findo/Dragon’s Best Friend,” “Take Your Pet to the Vet,” “Stuffy and Squibbles” and “Three Goats A’ Cuddlin.’”
Besides episodes of “Doc McStuffins: Pet Vet,” the programming event will include a music video mash-up of songs from the show and a short-form animated series featuring Stuffy, Doc’s toy dragon called “Stuffy’s Pet Vlog.” A Pet Care checklist will be available for kids on DisneyJunior.com/Doc. The Disney Junior Appisodes app for iOS users will also provide interactive experiences, which include helping Doc make diagnoses and treat one of the stuffed animals. Later, on August 20, a “Doc McStuffins: Pet Vet” mobile game will be available through the Apple App Store, zaptoit.com reports. In conjunction with the programming event, Disney Publishing Worldwide will release several “Doc McStuffins: Pet Vet” e-book and print titles, beginning with Dragon’s Best Friend on August 4.
