‘Doc McStuffins’ to salute medical heroes for Black History Month

The cable TV series will introduce audiences to three real life female African-American physicians from across the country.

Showcasing the hallmarks of great Disney storytelling, “Doc Mcstuffins,” tells the story of a nurturing six-year-old African-American girl, who can talk to the stuffed animals and toys that she cares for in her playhouse clinic.

Since its March 2012 premiere, “Doc McStuffins” has garnered worldwide attention and has inspired a group of female African-American physicians to begin a “movement” they coined, “We Are Doc McStuffins.”

In celebration of Black History Month, Disney Junior will debut “We Are Doc McStuffins” interstitials featuring Doc McStuffins alongside three real life female African-American physicians sharing what their jobs entail,and saluting their heroes. 

The interstitials will begin airing on Disney Channel and Disney Junior on Friday Feb. 1st  (10:25 a.m. ET/PT and 4:25 p.m. ET/PT, respectively) following a new “Doc McStuffins” Valentine’s Day themed episode.
