'''''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.

----
!!''Doc [=McStuffins=]'' features examples of:

* ActionGirl: Kiko, the Japanese action doll Doc got from her grandmother. She even has an [[DynamicEntry action kick]], as portrayed on her box. Doubles as a GenkiGirl.
* AcquiredSituationalNarcissism: Hallie gets this in "Big Head Hallie", after finding out she's part of a toy line based on a popular cartoon character.
* [[ActingForTwo Acting For Three]]: In-universe with the episode "Big Headed Hallie", Hallie decides to play all the roles of the gang's "Save the princess from the dragon" game.
* {{Adorkable}}: Stuffy the dragon. In spades.
* AfraidOfNeedles: Boomer the soccer ball hates being filled up because he's afraid of the pump. The scenario works out suspiciously similar to a kid being afraid of a hypodermic needle, but that's probably the intended effect anyways.
* AllAnimalsAreDogs: Despite being a brontosaurus, Bronty's personality and mannerisms are essentially those of a large, playful, hyperactive dog.
* AlliterativeFamily "Dottie" (Doc's real name) [=McStuffins=] and Donnie.
* AllCGICartoon
* AllLovingHero: Lambie.
* AreWeThereYet: In "Doc to the Rescue," Stuffy asks this as he and Lambie travel with Doc to a neighboring house to help a toy stuck in a tree. The first two times he asks the question, the answer from Lambie is "no." The third time, the answer is "yes." The fourth time, Stuffy starts to ask the question, only to stop when he realizes he got a "yes" to the last one.
* ArtShift: Has a few mini-episodes called "Doc Files" that usually show in between commercials where Doc relates a past case. When she does so, the style switches to 2D [[AdobeFlash flash style]] animation.
* BareYourMidriff: Doc's warm weather outfit.
* BigEater: The Gulpy-Gulpy Gators. They practically try to eat everything on site after Doc animates them.
* BigFun: Bronty-- when he first meets the other toys, he plays really rough and ends up causing a spate of "Bronty Boo-boos."
* BindleStick: Pickles the bunny creates one using a paintbrush in "The Bunny Blues" when she believes that her owner has decided to sell her in a yard sale.
* BlindWithoutEm: Hallie the hippo claims to be blind without her glasses, though a point-of-view shot establishes the actual fuzzy nearsightedness. Becomes a plot point in her ForgottenBirthday episode, where Doc makes her take off her glasses so the other toys can finish setting up for her surprise party.
** Also, in the episode ''Starry, Starry Night'', Aurora the telescope is blind without her eyepiece, mistaking the aquarium for a big-screen TV, Lambie for a dog and Chilly for Stuffy, who she thinks is a porcupine. As in the case of Hallie, this is reinforced with point-of-view shots, which indeed shows what she sees as a blurry mess.
* BusmansHoliday: Doc can't go anywhere without encountering a broken toy that needs her.
* CatchPhrase: "I'm really good at fixing toys."
** "I have a diagnosis!"
* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Almost inevitably, any "hero" toy that is made to rest by the Doc after getting injured will ignore doctor's orders if they see another toy in trouble. This will then lead to them getting injured again and Doc having to fix them again, followed by what passes from her as a stern talking-to about obeying doctor's orders.
* CoolBigSis: Doc to Donnie.
* CuddleBug: Lambie and Val in "My Huggy Valentine"
** Lambie's main duty at the clinic seems to be dispensing cuddles, which are apparently a legitimate and vital part of several treatments.
* {{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.
* DinosaursAreDragons: Played with-- when Stuffy (dragon) and Bronty (brontosaurus) meet, the Doc says that they are like family and that they could be cousins.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything: Some of the problems the toys have are comparable to actual medical conditions.
* EdutainmentShow: The main thrust of the program is to show children what happens at the doctor's office and make them less fearful of a checkup, but there are also the general pro-social lessons often included with this type of show.
* EmbarrassingFirstName: [[spoiler:Percy]] the Wicked King.
* ExpressiveEars: Seen on Pickles the bunny in "The Bunny Blues"
* FakeInteractivity: Consciously avoided in the main show, as the creator didn't want to make a show like this with so many of them already out there, but used in the segments in the closing credits in which the titular Doc quizzes the viewer on a subject related to hygiene or health. As of season 2, this is no longer used.
* FiveManBand:
** TheHeroine: Doc [=McStuffins=] (also TheMedic)
** TheLancer: Stuffy
** TheSmartGirl: Hallie
** TheBigGuy: Chilly
** TheChick: Lambie
* FriendlyRivalry: Professor Hootsburgh the stuffed owl has one with Li'l Egghead the handheld trivia game.
* GenericName: Awesome man. Is a superhero. No words on that one I can tell you...
* GreenEyedMonster: Lambie gets jealous when Val shows up on the show in "My Huggy Valentine."
* HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Lambie and Hallie
* HalloweenEpisode: "Boo-Hoo to You! / Glow Time," which premiered on October 12, 2012. In the first story, a toy ghost is afraid of Halloween. In the second, a normally glowing toy has "no-glow-atosis."
* HarmlessVillain: Percy the Wicked King. Easily put into place by Doc, and the worst he's done is act like a schoolground bully with no grievous harm to other toys.
* HeyThatsMyLine: Lambie in "My Huggy Valentine" after Val says "You look like you could use a cuddle."
* {{Hypochondria}}: One of the main characters is a hypochondriac stuffed snowman named Chilly who regularly fears melting (he's not made of real snow), getting broken bones (he's a stuffed toy) and catching various illnesses that aren't contagious.
* {{Keet}}: Stuffy again.
* LicensedGame: two games for [[IOSGames Apple iOS devices]] was released[[https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/doc-mcstuffins-time-for-your/id640941236?mt=8]]. Also, three (one game and two e-books) for the Creator/LeapFrog [=LeapPad=] and [=Leapster=] Explorer toys and one for the V-Tech Innotab and MobiGo toys. The [=LeapFrog=] game is [[NoExportForYou US, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand only]], where the download version is concerned, sorry. However, if you get lucky, you just might find the cartridge version. [[BadExportForYou But then, the cartridge versions have problems with slow loading times]] and the second e-book remains available in only the same five regions as the game and with no cartridge release.
* TheMasquerade: Doc keeps it a secret that she can bring toys to life. She even tells them to "go stuffed" when someone else approaches.
* TheMerch: Merchandise is already out and 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.)
* MyLittlePanzer: In the episode ''Rip Heard 'Round The World'', Apparently, Sir Kirby's sword is sharp enough to cut a rip through Lambie's plush when she was accidentally swung hard by Doc into the Sir Kirby who was brandishing his sword accessory. Magic can be ruled out since the toys were inanimate when that happened, and plush fabric don't tear easily. The only plausible explanation is that the sword accessory is made of real sharpened steel.
* NoIndoorVoice: One of Doc's patients was a toy cell phone that kept talking too loudly. At first she thought something was wrong with his volume control, but it just turned out that he had no indoor voice and talked loudly whenever he got excited.
* OneOfTheseIsNotLikeTheOthers: Of the five main toy characters, Squeakers is the only one not to be stuffed.
* OnlyKnownByTheirNickname: "Doc" [=McStuffins=] doesn't go by any other name - even her parents call her "Doc." WordOfGod, based on merchandise releases, is that her real name is "Dottie". Finally made canon in "The Doctor Will See you Now", when the receptionist at the doctor's office calls Doc "Dottie Mcstuffins".
* PantslessMalesFullyDressedFemales: Anna the female stuffed monkey wears a bow on her head and a skirt without underwear, but her brother, Ben, only wears a bowtie.
* PercussiveMaintenance: In "Stuck Up," before giving his toy to Doc to fix, the boy had tried banging it with no success.
* ShoulderSizedDragon: Stuffy, despite being a toy, qualifies for this trope due to his canon size.
* PunnyName: Ben and Anna. They're huggy monkeys, which uses velcro to cuddle up to each other. [[DontExplainTheJoke Guess what monkeys are stereotyped to like eating in media...]]
** And then there's the title of the episode. At first, it may seem like a case of ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin or WordSaladTitle, but after a while the PunnyName joke settles in, and you realize why you're craving for dessert whenever you tried to make sense of the title.
* RaceLift: An unofficial merchandise example-- in Buenos Aires, Argentina, some stores are [[http://www.discoverbuenosaires.com/doc-mcstuffins-now-white selling]] a Doc that looks at best AmbiguouslyBrown, and at worst, white. It's no surprise, therefore, that those living in South America often purchase ''official'' Doc merchandise online.
* RecordNeedleScratch Used ''twice'' in the episode "Blazer's Bike". On a OnceanEpisode song, nonetheless.
* RealLifeWritesThePlot: Chris Nee was inspired to create the program because her son has asthma and there have been a lot of scary doctor's visits. Her son refers to the program as "my show."
* RunningGag: Chilly keeps forgetting he's not really made of snow and always worries he might melt.
* ShoutOut: One episode is called [[WesternAnimation/{{Bonkers}} "Awesome Possums".]]
* SliceOfLife: A show about a six year old and her day to day life as a toy repair lady, [[MagicalRealism toys magically brought alive]] through a magical MacGuffin not withstanding.
* SlidingScaleOfLivingToys: The toys on the show seem to fall somewhere between Level 2 and 3. They are brought to life by Doc's magic stethoscope, but they only ever speak to her and other toys, and Doc alerts them to "go stuffed" if anyone else approaches. They still don't seem to have a consciousness while inanimate, though, as evidenced when [[spoiler:Doc accidentally cut up Lambie]] and [[spoiler:she]] didn't even notice until Doc pointed it out later in the episode.
* StealthPun: Hermy the crab has a ''Boston'' accent.
* ThatRemindsMeOfASong: At least OncePerEpisode (actually, twice per story). Trust us, it's quite a musical show.
* TitleThemeTune
* ThemeNaming: The show has a penchant for using names that end in a long-e sound (ee). Most of the main characters as well as a majority of the regularly recurring characters follow this rule. Lambie, Stuffy, Hallie, Chilly, Donnie, Emmie, Henry, Kirby, Daisy and Bronty are only a few examples of those who have been given prevalent roles in more than one episode. Doc technically also follows this rule as her real name is Dottie, but it is subverted as she is referred to in show as Doc.
** 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.
* TheVoiceless: Even though the Doc's magic stethoscope brings toys to life and allows them to speak, Squeakers can still only squeak.
-->'''Hallie''': I dunno! I don't speak squeak!
* [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have to be Spiders?]]: Stuffy
-->'''Stuffy''': Why did it have to be spiders? Dragons hate spiders.
** Also [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why Did It Have To Be A Needle?]] said word-for-word for Boomer the soccer ball.
* YouWontFeelAThing: The whole clinic staff uttered this exact phrase to an uneasy Niles while trying to get his bandages off. Of course, Niles was expecting it to hurt. Inverted in that they proceeded to carefully take off most of the bandages while Niles wasn't paying attention, so he naturally felt nothing when Doc told him it was time to take them off and pulled a little piece of bandage still on him.
** The "Time for Your Checkup" song has the line "It'll only tickle a little".
