''Doc [=McStuffins=]'' is a preschool-targeted CGI-animated children's series on [[DisneyChannel Disney Junior]] featuring a child doctor who runs a clinic for stuffed animals and toys. The series was one of the first announced for Disney Junior, which replaced Playhouse Disney, though it did not begin airing until Valentine's Day, 2012 with the premiere of the 24/7 Disney Junior network in the United States. In each episode, the eponymous Doc uses her magic stethoscope to bring toys to life and then diagnoses and heals a sick or damaged toy. With its complex characters and willingness to buck the general format of similar shows currently on the air, the program has been [[http://www.fastcocreate.com/1680182/how-the-creator-of-doc-mcstuffins-bucked-the-norm-and-made-cheers-for-preschoolers described]] as "''Series/{{Cheers}}'' for prechoolers" and has amassed a sizeable audience. The second season started in mid-2013, and ended on Spring 2015. The third season started on Summer 2015. The fourth season premieres on July 30, 2016. At this time, however, Disney has yet to formally greenlight a fifth season, resulting in [[http://www.whio.com/news/entertainment/why-adults-are-trying-keep-7-year-old-doc-mcstuffi/nrrzy/ celebrity campaign]] to continue the series.

** It is pretty clear that the name of the ''Gulpy Gulpy Gators'' toy was actually a nod to ''Hungry Hungry Hippos''. Bonus points for being only one letter down!
** Dress-up Daisy is obviously a Barbie expy.
** There are a number of other toys with features that are obviously based on real-life toys, some more obviously than others. That said, there are no toys seen on the show that exist in real life, save the previously mentioned Defictionalization of many toys that are original to the show.

Additionally, in "Liv Long and Pawsper," Doc puts Luna's RobotDog rover, Liv, in one of these after he starts scratching when she glues his antenna back on. She also mentions that her friend Emmy's dog had wear one once for a few days.

** The new adoptive baby sister, [[spoiler:Maya]], doesn't follow the motif, but then again, perhaps that's what happens when you wait to the last minute to name your kid (see LastMinuteBabyNaming) above and end up leaving the naming to one of Doc's toys. (Though they believe the name came from Doc herself.)

** Because the other main ensemble (Lambie, Stuffy, Hallie and Chilly) follows the same naming motif, Doc's nickname qualifies as a {{OddNameOut}} to emphasize her importance.
