* ActorAllusion: Big and Little Jack, a father and son pair, are voiced by Ty Burrell and Nolan Gould, respectively. [[Series/ModernFamily Wonder where the casting agency got that idea?]]
* AdoredByTheNetwork: Having daily reruns and being the first Disney show to get a 5th season is proof of this. Also, the show is so adored that even programming providers, such as Hulu, are tending to use the program as the face of their children's programming in their advertisements.
* BadExportForYou:
** The South American versions of the toys are {{bowdlerized}} to the point where the good doctor herself is AmbiguouslyBrown or outright ''white'' in those markets. This has led to fans from those countries buying the toys from North America just because they are colored correctly.
** The Leapfrog game is also only available in cartridge form to other few select markets outside of the six regions with the downloadable version. The big problem with this version? Cartridges are ''slow'', and they cost more (often over twice as much) than the direct download version. Have fun waiting for the game to load!
*** This also applies to the V-Tech [=InnoTab=] game. Live outside the US, UK, Canada, Australia or New Zealand? Be prepared to import the LoadsAndLoadsOfLoading cartridge (also an added kick to the groin if you just added a high-speed SD card to your [=InnoTab=]).
** ''Cuddle Me Lambie'', ''Mobile Clinic'' and ''School of Medicine'' are technically this in UsefulNotes/{{Malaysia}} because not only they're released several months late (in ''Mobile Clinic's'' case, half a year late- since ''Mobile Clinic's'' release in Malaysia was initially substituted for the Asia-only ''A Little Cuddle Goes A Long Way''), but so far it's only been released as part of the [=EzyDVD=] line. To wit, this line is an atrocity because not only are the subtitles hardwired and cannot be turned off (which is acceptable if it was a [=VideoCD=] release where subtitles are not part of the specifications, but these are [=DVDs=], which have the luxury of subtitles and captioning built in), the movie only has an English language soundtrack. This contrasts against the "premium" release which the last three DVD releases got (which does have multiple language subtitles that can be turned off completely and a multi-language soundtrack) in addition to an [=EzyDVD=] release.
* {{Defictionalization}}: Well, this is a show about a girl and her sentient toys that are brought to life by means of a magical MacGuffin. And due to TheMerch, this trope is indirectly invoked. Specifically, there's a battery-powered toy featured the good Doc and Lambie with a "magic stethoscope" that can be used to "bring Lambie to life", and of course there are talking plushes. Heck, even the regular plushes count, given that the plush toys in the show are just that until brought to life with the magic stethoscope. The plush toys of Squibbles, however, aren't quite a straight example. While there is one that you can squeeze and it makes noises, on the show, Squibbles is a toy that needs to be plugged in to charge. The real life version is one of those that has a small battery operated mechanism on the inside and isn't designed to be opened up. Once it dies, that's it.
* DescendedCreator: Chris Nee, the creator of the series, voices Emmy and Alma's mom.
* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: The show only had five DVD releases in the three years it's been out, and while Amazon, Netflix and iTunes stock the full season, those are generally NoExportForYou cases to the remaining 66% of the world that Apple et. al. deems undeserving to buy the series off them. Episodes have started appearing on Youtube, but all of them have been manipulated in some way (ie image-flipped or squished and sound pitch changed) to throw Google's overzealous copyright-bot (which is there due to Disney's iron fist in copyrights) off.
** Yes, it's still airing on Disney Junior, but even that it remains a pain to those who cannot get/don't want to get Disney Junior for whatever reason.[[note]]In some countries, the local laws permits a Pay TV provider to exclusively monopolize a channel so they're the only provider with the channel, effectively denying subscribers of competing systems access to the channel, with no antitrust and anti-competition penalties from the government. This makes it a burden for those who subscribe to the competition but still want that channel. For example, Disney Junior is only available over Astro in Malaysia due to Malaysia harboring such system. People who subscribe to the competition (say, [=UniFi HyppTV=]- because said provider has Creator/CBeebies which isn't available on Astro) still need to subscribe to Astro if they also want Disney Junior.[[/note]]
* TheMerch: Merchandise ranges from the good (a Lambie plush that is reviewed as being very soft and cuddly) to the bad (a talking Lambie that seems to be the toy equivalent of a lemon - nearly everyone reports that stops working after a couple of days.) Merchandise for this show often sells online for a heavy premium, and you simply may or may not get lucky if you're trying to find a particular item in stores. Note that if you live in a primarily white area, though, there's a good chance that you may be able to find plenty of plush of the Doc herself, even when Stuffy, Lambie, Chilly and all of the others are sold out. Yep, even in this day and age. (Of course, it's possible that this may not have anything to do with Doc's blackness when you consider that she's competing against a stuffed lamb that oozes cuteness and a blue dragon who's also rather cute.) In any case, though, a [[http://www.nytimes.com/2014/07/27/business/a-disney-doctor-speaks-of-identity-to-little-girls.html?_r=0 report]] in mid-July 2014 indicated that over $500 million worth of show merchandise had already been sold, and that the line seems to have enduring appeal and has also attracted the attention of both boys and white consumers. Even as of 2017, Toys R Us named the Doc [=McStuffins=] All-in-One Nursery on its [[https://www.toysrus.com/toys/holiday/hot-toy-list top 20 toy list]], showing the program still is raking it in when it comes to merchandise.
* NamesTheSame: One of the episode is titled ''Dark Knight''. [[IThoughtItMeant No]], a Franchise/{{Batman}} action figure isn't appearing as the patient in the episode.[[note]]Given that Batman is a Creator/DCComics character which is owned by Time-Warner and Disney owns Creator/MarvelComics, it would take a ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''-level licensing deal for Batman to show up in a Disney show.[[/note]]
** One episode is titled ''Blame it on the Rain''. The same title was used a decade earlier by an episode of HBO's Literature/HaroldAndThePurpleCrayon animated series.
** Another episode is titled ''Out of the Box''. Given that the show airs on Disney Junior, the successor to Playhouse Disney, there's no blame here if you're finding yourself singing ''Series/OutOfTheBox, ooh yeah, Out of the Box! Take one box, put it with another, let's look for one that's long and wide...''
* NoExportForYou: The toys are generally this outside of the Americas. They're practically nonexistent in many parts of Europe and Asia (save for a few areas with a healthy parallel import market like Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia and the United Kingdom).
** Live in an area where Amazon, Netflix, Hulu or iTunes does not sell videos to? There's no way to get episodes of the show or season sets other than those already released onto DVD aside from getting Disney Junior and recording them yourself.
** A game for the Creator/LeapFrog [=LeapPad=] Explorer has recently been released. The big problem? It's available for download in the US, Canada, UK, Australia and New Zealand; but if you live in other countries in the world, forget about being able to download it- it's only available in the five countries mentioned above. Leapfrog's excuse that there has been a licensing issue is incredibly shaky, given that an earlier released e-book that's also for the [=LeapPad=] Explorer is also available worldwide, and oh, it's available in cartridge form in other countries (although that one's a bad export for you- cartridges are for some reason slow and cost much more).
** Played straight is the second LeapFrog e-book- Leapfrog only sells e-books through the app store, and you're screwed if you live outside the six countries, since there is no cartridge release for this one.
*** Also played straight with the V-Tech [=InnoTab=] releases. There's one video compilation and one game for the tablet, but they're also region-locked by IP addresses. While the game is potentially subvertable since it's available in cartridge form, the video isn't since like LeapFrog's eBooks for the [=LeapPad=], there is no cartridge release for it.
* TheOriginalDarrin: Peter Cullen returned as Eeyore in "Into the Hundred Acre Wood" after Bud Luckey voiced Eeyore in the 2011 Winnie the Pooh film.
* TheOtherDarrin:
** [[https://www.facebook.com/pages/Laya-Hayes/1474296022791684 Laya DeLeon Hayes]] is the new voice of Doc starting in season 3.
** In the mini-series ''The Doc Files'', Ben Schwartz voices Stuffy instead of Robbie Rist.
** Amy Seadris voiced Dress Up Daisy in season 2, while [[Music/GreyDeLisle Grey DeLisle-Griffin]] took over in season 3.
** In the ''Winnie the Pooh'' crossover episode "Into The Hundred Acre Wood", Oliver Bell voices Christopher Robin, who was last voiced by Jack Wyatt in the 2011 ''Winnie the Pooh'' film.
* RoleReprisal: The episode "Into The Hundred Acre Wood" is a crossover with ''Winnie the Pooh''. As such, Jim Cummings, Travis Oates, and Peter Cullen reprise their respective roles of Pooh and Tigger, Piglet, and Eeyore.
* TooSoon: The episode "First Responders To The Rescue" was originally scheduled to air on September 9, 2017, but it was moved to September 23. The reason for this was because the episode dealt with a storm, and came out while Hurricane Irma was still going. However, it still came out on the app and on demand the day of its intended release.
