Wanda Sykes and Portia De Rossi Guest Star on Doc McStuffins


Disney Junior’s award-winning preschool show Doc McStuffins has always made a point to be progressive and to carry a message of acceptance, making it a great show for teaching kids how to build a more inclusive, friendly community as they grow older. Now, it ups the ante as it will be the first show on Disney Junior to feature an LGBT couple in a storyline. As a bonus, the characters are also voiced by two of Hollywood’s most famous representatives of the movment—Wanda Sykes and Portia De Rossi.

Titled “The Emergency Plan,” the episode will feature a doll family with two moms who are caught unprepared when a toy dragon creates an earthquake by jumping up and down. When the family gets separated, Doc McStuffins teaches them about how to be prepared in the future. (You can watch it online at watchdisneyjunior.go.com/doc-mcstuffins)

“I always envision Doc McStuffins as a show about what it means to accept everyone as part of our communities. As part of a two-mom family, I’m proud to have an episode that reflects my son’s world, and shows everyone that love is love in McStuffinsville,” said series creator Chris Nee, who also wrote the episode.
