[[caption-width-right:350:The Doc is in!]]

''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.

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

* AbsenteeActor: Chilly and Hallie were missing from some episodes.
** Chilly was missing from 13 episodes: "Knight Time", "Run Down Race Car", "Tea Party Tantrum", "Blast Off!", "Arcade Escapade", "Stuck Up", "All Washed Up", "Wrap It Up", "Get Set to Get Wet", "To Squeak, or Not to Squeak", "Brontosaurus Breath", "Don't Knock the Noggin" and "Slip N' Slide".
** Hallie was missing from 6 episodes: "Arcade Escapade", "Stuck Up", "Get Set to Get Wet", "To Squeak, or Not to Squeak", "Don't Knock the Noggin" and "The Doctor Will See You Now".
** In ''The Doc Files'', Lambie was missing from "Ronda's Run Down Rotors", Stuffy was missing from "Hippo's Rip", Hallie was missing from "Gustov Gator's Gulp", "Chilly Willies", "Boppy's Boo Boo", "Mr. Chomps' Chompers" and "Ronda's Run Down Rotors", and Chilly was missing from "The Lamb's Exam", "Gustov Gator's Gulp" and Mr. Chomps' Chompers"
* TheAce: The Dude.
* 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: 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. In the book version, ''Boomer Gets His Bounce Back'', Boomer specifically states that he's scared of needles and Doc tells him that she's always scared when he has to get a shot with a needle from her doctor, but her mother comes and helps her feel brave.
* AirHugging: Lambie's general shtick is to give cuddles whenever possible. However, there have been a couple of instances where there was something preventing actual cuddling, so she gave an "air cuddle" instead.
* AllAnimalsAreDogs: Despite being a brontosaurus, Bronty's personality and mannerisms are essentially those of a large, playful, hyperactive dog. Even the sound of his voice strongly evokes this image. Also, Squibbles is basically a ball of fuzz with eyes, a nose and mouth, colorful stripes, legs, and antennae. His behavior, however, is like that of a small, very excitable dog and he basically makes noises like a dog.
* AlliterativeFamily: "Dottie" (Doc's real name) [=McStuffins=] and Donnie.
* AlliterativeName: Doc's Dad's name is Marcus, making him Marcus [=McStuffins=]. There's also Doc's new adoptive baby sister, [[spoiler:Maya]].
%% * AllCGICartoon
%% * AllLovingHero: Lambie.
* AllThereInTheManual: The supplementary book ''Doc [=McStuffins=]: My World'' states that Doc's father is a chef. This is never mentioned on the series itself.
* 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 (or after the main show in markets where Disney Junior has no commercials) where Doc relates a past case. When she does so, the style switches to 2D [[UsefulNotes/AdobeFlash flash style]] animation.
* BabyTalk: Waddly Penguin, being a toy for a baby, Suki, speaks in this manner. Doc herself speaks this way when talking to Suki. Also, Lala, the toy Doc chooses for her adoptive sister, full-stop.
* 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.
* ABoyAGirlAndABabyFamily: The [=McStuffins=] family is [[spoiler:[[http://www.popsugar.com/moms/Disney-Doc-McStuffins-Featuring-Adoption-Storyline-40214188 adopting a baby]]]].
* BusmansHoliday: Doc can't go anywhere without encountering a broken toy that needs her. This includes a trip to the park, a day of fun at the arcade, or even a visit to the White House.
* CatchPhrase:
** "I'm really good at fixing toys."
** "I have a diagnosis!"
** "I haven't lost a toy yet!"
** "You look like you could use a cuddle!"
** In-universe: In "The Super Amazing Ultra Hoppers," the three robots D'ambrosio, Dellorto and [=DiNardo=] have a catchphrase: "Hoppers together, teamwork forever!" Stuffy notes that they say it a lot and one of them replies that it's their catchphrase. Stuffy then decides he needs a catchphrase of his own, but is only to come up with "Dragons are great, served on a plate." Later, he rejects "A dragon on the shelf is better than an elf" and asks for Hallie's help, but she tells him he's on his own. Then, after Stuffy takes a bad landing while trying hop, Hallie snarks "Dragons can't hop. Instead, they just flop."
* ChainedHeat: When Sir Kirby and the Wicked King get glued together, they must cooperate to get to Doc from Donny's bedroom.
* ChristmasEpisode: A Very [=McStuffins=] Christmas
* 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. The only one who seems able to resist is Awesome Guy. He's so awesome that when he injures his arm, he's able to make a save using the super-strength of his legs.
* ConeOfShame: A dog can be seen wearing one of these in the vet's office in "Take Your Pet to the Vet." 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.
* CoolBigSis: Doc to Donnie.
* CrossdressingVoices:
** Penny Possom's babies were all three voiced by one girl.
** Louie the toy phone was voiced by Georgie Kidder.
* 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. 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.
* DinosaursAreDragons: Played with-- when Stuffy (dragon) and Bronty (brontosaurus) meet, the Doc says that they are like family and that they could be cousins. In a later installment, Bronty refers to Stuffy as "Cousin Stuffy."
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything:
** Some of the problems the toys have are comparable to actual medical conditions.
** There's an episode called "Commander No" in which the toy Commander Crush doesn't want to be tickled by the toy gorilla, Gloria, but she wouldn't stop because even though he said "no" and told her to stop, ''she didn't think he really meant it.'' Wow, yeah, okay.
** In "The New Nurse", Dress-Up Daisy spends much of the episode not believing that Dress-Up Declan, who was introduced wearing a suit and changes in to various masculine outfits, is actually a nurse. She even says that she thought only girls could be nurses and tries to get him to put on a cowboy outfit and other male outfits.
* {{Duck}}: In "Frida Fairy Flies Again," when Frida starts trying to fly even though her wing is ripped, Doc calls out to duck and Chilly is confused because he thought she was a fairy, not a duck.
* 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.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: In "The Wicked King and the Mean Queen", the Wicked King gives up the chance to win a game when he sees Queen Amina, his opponent, is hurt. When she asks why he did that, he replies, "I revel in being wicked, but I do not ever want anyone to get hurt." In another episode, he has to choose between winning and having a friend, and chooses to a have a friend.
* ExpressiveEars: Seen on Pickles the bunny in "The Bunny Blues". Tundra, a stuffed bear doctor in "[=McStuffins=] School of Medicine" also has them. Also, Stuffy has these sort of antenna-things that can get pretty droopy when he's sad about something.
* 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.
* FantasyHelmetEnforcement: It's discovered that Super Stuntman Steve is missing his in "Don't Knock the Noggin." Super Stuntman Steve thinks this is totally not '''''rad''''' because [[ThirdPersonPerson Super Stuntman Steve]] never rides without his helmet. Doc [=McStuffins=] would never think of doing so either.
* FiveManBand:
** TheHeroine: Doc [=McStuffins=] (also TheMedic)
** TheLancer: Stuffy
** TheSmartGirl: Hallie
** TheBigGuy: Chilly
** TheChick: Lambie
* FlatCharacter: Chilly. With him, it's pretty much always the hypochondriac shtick or worrying about melting. Really, the only time anything interesting happens with him is when he turns pink.
* FriendlyRivalry: Professor Hootsburgh the stuffed owl has one with Li'l Egghead the handheld trivia game.
* FriendlyTickleTorture: In "Commander No," Gloria intends the tickling she does to Commander Crush to be this, but for him it's just TickleTorture because he told her to stop, but she didn't, thinking he didn't really mean it.
* FullNameUltimatum: Hallie gives one to Doc, calling her by her real name "Dottie."
%% * FunnyForeigner: Kiko.
* GenericName: Awesome Guy. Is a superhero. No words on that one, I can tell you...
* {{Gesundheit}}: In "The New Girl," Stuffy says "bless you" after Kiko says "Arigato gozaimasu." (A formal "thank you")
* GirlishPigtails: Doc [=McStuffins=] herself sports these, along with a purple hairband with a pink flower.
* GotVolunteered: This happens to Stuffy in "Dragon's Best Friend" when toy pet of some sort named Squibbles takes a shine to him. Stuffy doesn't really like him at first because he finds him annoying because he keeps tailing after him and doing stuff like jumping on him and licking him. But when Squibbles is scared of getting a checkup from Doc, Stuffy is volunteered to accompany him to calm him down because he's the only one that can and then later is volunteered to keep him busy while Doc heads out to put up signs to try to find his owner.
* 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 (see ''Even Evil Has It's Standards'' above).
* HeyThatsMyLine: Lambie in "My Huggy Valentine" after Val says "You look like you could use a cuddle."
* HiccupHijinks: Millie the Microphone suffers from "Repeat-itis".
* {{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.
* ItsTheBestWhateverEver: In the ChristmasEpisode, Stuffy declares it the best Christmas ever and [[PunctuatedForEmphasis punctuates it for emphasis.]]
* {{Keet}}:
** Stuffy again.
** Also, Bronty acts like one of those 6 year olds that are wired on orange sodas. You know, kinda hooked on energy drinks. And he is even more of a Keet than Stuffy is, which is saying something.
* LastMinuteBabyNaming: The [=McStuffins=] family doesn't yet have a name for the baby in the adoption arc when they bring her home, though the birth mother likes "Alanna," so they use that as a middle name. Mr. [=McStuffins=] admits also they didn't have names for Doc (Dottie) and Donnie when they were first born either. One of the episodes of the adoption arc, "Baby Names," is about choosing a name. ([[spoiler:It's Maya.]])
* LicensedGame: three 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, plus a video for the [=InnoTab=].
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: While there are only a few main characters, there have been over 100 toy characters on the show, many of which have appeared more than once. Some of the ones that aren't official regulars that are most likely to be seen include Bronty, the Wicked King (Percy), Sir Kirby, Professor Hootsburg and Squibbles.
* MarketBasedTitle: Apparently, in Japan, the show's called ''[[ShapedLikeItself Doc the Toy Doctor]]'' (ドックはおもちゃドクター )[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iwse7sOqtSg]]
* TheMasquerade: Doc keeps it a secret that she can bring toys to life. She even tells them to "go stuffed" when someone else approaches.
* MerchandiseDriven: The "Pet Vet" series seems like it may be at least in part this because it's accompanied by a huge merchandise push, some of which was [[http://www.disneystore.com/plush-toys-squibbles-plush-doc-mcstuffins-mini-6/mp/1378995/1000267/ released]] even before the official television premiere.
* MetaphorIsMyMiddleName: Stuffy uses this in "Think Pink!" after Hallie tells him and Lambie they need to stay cool. He then admits his middle name is actually Philbert.
* MissingMom: The Jack-in-the-Boxes Big Jack and Little Jack. They're a father-and-son team, but there's no mom.
* 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.
%% * TheNapoleon: The Wicked King.
* NewPowersAsThePlotDemands: "Let the Nightingale Sing" reveals that Doc's magic stethoscope not only can animate toys, but is also apparently capable of transporting both her and them into the real life version of a scene depicted in a book, something apparently even she wasn't sure it could do until she actually tried it and it worked. She's so excited about meeting the real life Florence Nightingale as a child that she decides to double down and break another show convention by revealing the stethoscope's magical animating powers to her.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed:
** 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 a Barbie {{expy}}.
** There are a number of other toys with features that are 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.
* 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.
* OncePerEpisode: Used to be true of the "Time for Your Checkup" song. In some latter installments it is absent, but "Hey, What's Going On?" is used instead.
** There is a new original song called "Get Your Pet to the Vet". It normally appears in Pet Vet episodes.
* 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=]".
* OriginsEpisode: "Bringing Home Baby" features several flashbacks to Doc's early life, showing how she got each of her main toy friends, how she got her magic stethoscope and learned of its power to bring toys to life, and how she came to be a toy doctor.
* 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.
* 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."
* RidiculouslyCuteCritter: Squibbles meets the definition - he's basically a ball of fuzz that looks a lot the [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Voorpak voorpaks]] from ''Franchise/StarWars'', but much more colorful.
* RightBehindYou: A benign example in the ChristmasEpisode. The elf is talking about how happy he is that he didn't let down SantaClaus when he realizes that Santa is right behind him. Santa, however, is happy with his work and gives him a promotion to the top of the ranks.
* RobotDog: Liv is a toy rover to accompany Liv, a space-explorer toy, who behaves pretty much like a dog.
* RunningGag: Chilly keeps forgetting he's not really made of snow and always worries he might melt.
* SantaClaus: The elf in the ChristmasEpisode spends most of the episode avoiding him because he's worried about what Santa will think of him. Santa, however, likes his work and gives him a promotion. He also reveals that he's been following Doc [=McStuffins=]' career with considerable interest and offers her a job, but she declines.
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Sir Kirby did this in "''A Day Without Cuddles''" when Stuffy accidentally stepped on his foot while giving Bronty a cuddle.
* ShoulderSizedDragon: Stuffy, despite being a toy, qualifies for this trope due to his canon size.
* ShoutOut:
** One episode is called [[WesternAnimation/{{Bonkers}} "Awesome Possums".]]
** The names of the Walkie Talkies in ''Walkie-Talkie Time'' [[Creator/WalterLantz were probably not chosen at random.]]
** Towards the end of "Commander No," Commander Crush tells Gloria that "I have and always shall be your spacetastically devoted friend." It's possible it may not be a deliberate reference, but it's certainly very similar to Spock's line to Kirk in ''Film/StarTrekIITheWrathOfKhan'': "I have been... and always shall be... your friend."
** In "Dragon's Best Friend," Stuffy specifically states of Squibbles that "I'm gonna love him and hug him [[WesternAnimation/LooneyTunes and call him George]]." The [[AndCallHimGeorge trope]] does't actually happen, though, because Stuffy knows to be careful. Also, when Squibbles whimpers at this, Stuffy demurs and says they'll stick with "Squibbles."
** In "Smitten With a Kitten," Chilly suggests that the reason a toy kitten isn't able to talk is because a [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid sea witch stole her voice]].
** In "Ticklish Truck," when a BlanketFort is knocked over as part of a game, Professor Hootsburgh states "[[Series/TheSixMillionDollarMan We can rebuild it. We have the technology. Better than before.]]"
** In "Tour de [=McStuffins=]," when the biker toy Stella twists her leg, Chilly yells out "Stella! Stella!" in the same way as Stanley in ''Film/AStreetcarNamedDesire''.
** "Liv Long and Pawsper" is named after the famous phrase from ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries''.
* 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.
** The three other non-toy characters the toys speak to is an elf and Father Christmas in "A Very [=McStuffins=] Christmas," named Tobias, and a young girl in "Let the Nightingale Sing" named Florence Nightingale (strongly implied to be ''the'').
** The above two episodes suggest this series leans more towards Level 3.
* SpeciesEqualsGender: Inverted with the toy gorilla as she is female and most gorillas in cartoons and other fictional works are male. Played straight with Hallie the hippo and Lambie the lamb as hippos and sheep in cartoons tend to be female.
* SpinOff: ''The Doc Files'', a short filler series that recaps the stories in the main show that airs between commercials in Disney Junior feeds that has them, or after the main show in commercial-free Disney Junior feeds.
* StealthPun: Hermy the crab has a ''Boston'' accent. "Boston crab" is the name of a wrestling hold.
* TalkingInYourSleep: "Top Lamb" shows that Doc sometimes talks in her sleep.
-->'''Doc [=McStuffins=]''': Diagnosis... checkup...
* ThatRemindsMeOfASong: At least OncePerEpisode (actually, twice per story). Trust us, it's quite a musical show.
* TitleThemeTune: DOC-MC-STUFF-INS, DOC-MC-STUFF-INS...
* 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. There's also the Wicked King, whose real name is Percy.
** 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.
** 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 Doc's family believes the name came from Doc herself.)
* ThirdPersonPerson: Count Clarence, a cardboard bat toy, is this, and he always appends it with "the Magnificent."
* TotallyRadical: Sometimes some of the older toys or ones about specific subject matter use slang such as "Far out." This once got Doc an odd look from her Dad when she described a meteor shower as being "Far out" after hearing the phrase from her toy telescope.
* UnevilLaugh: In "Boo-Hoo to You!", the HalloweenEpisode, when Doc [=McStuffin=]'s dad tries for an EvilLaugh, it comes out really weak and Doc tells him that he might want to keep trying on it.
* UnwantedRescue: In the ChristmasEpisode, Stuffy doesn't want to be rescued when Lambie and Chilly come for him because he's getting a special plush toy treatment. The two soon join him.
* 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!
** Also, in the "Pet Vet" episodes, any toy described as a "toy pet" is this.
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: 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.
* YouGetMeCoffee: In "Rockstar Ruby," Ruby the rock star toy has quit singing because her microphone is broken and asks Doc to give her another job. She makes Ruby her office assistant and gives her a large stack of papers to file while everyone else sings and plays music until she can't take it anymore.
* 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".
