PREMIERING FRIDAY, MARCH 23 ON DISNEY JUNIOR
Watch the Doc McStuffins the premiere of Disney Junior's "Doc McStuffins," an animated series that models good health, hygiene, compassion and nurturing for kids age 2-7. Each episode contains heartwarming stories, features an original song, and stars 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.
