** Strangely averted with the LeapFrog Explorer and V-Tech [=InnoTab=] releases of the game. Though put side by side, the first iOS title comes across as a tech demo and ObviousBeta of the [=LeapFrog=] version of the game - the first iOS and LeapFrog titles plays similarly, but the LeapFrog title feels much more polished and does not have several of the issues plaguing the first iOS title.

Added DiffLines:

* JustHereForGodzilla: Disney/WinnieThePooh fans watching the crossover episode just for this reason. Bonus points for bringing Peter Cullen back to voice Eeyore.

Added DiffLines:

** Now that the episode has aired, it's gotten a lot of praise for its portrayal of LGBT, and is still a well regarded episode even without it.

Added DiffLines:

* GrowingTheBeard: Later episodes manage to take on more mature topics without losing sight of the target audience.


Added DiffLines:

* OvershadowedByControversy: While it hasn't aired as of this writing, the episode "The Emergency Plan" is shaping up to be this. The focus is on a doll family with two mothers surviving an earthquake. While previews show that it's just a regular episode, this has garnered the attention of the organization One Million Moms, who think the show isn't clean anymore.

Added DiffLines:

* NotSoCrazyAnymore: One installment of ''Toy Hospital'' revolves around a toy who doesn't want to be taken to the toy hospital because she's afraid she'll get sick there. The other toys reassure her that she has nothing to worry about, as a hospital is a place to help you get better, not someplace where you'll get sick. However, in the real world there's been a deepening public health crisis involving antibiotic-resistant infections people have picked up while staying in hospitals. In fact, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hospital-acquired_infection Wikipedia]] has an entry regarding the subject and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates there are as many as 90,000 deaths a year from diseases acquired in hospitals. Given this, adult viewers in the know could easily see this toy's concern as being very, very legitimate, especially given that they're taking her to a hospital she hasn't been able to personally check into see if it's up to standard, one that is run by, well, a 6-year-old kid.


* AnachronismStew or ArtisticLicenseHistory: In 'Let the Nightingale Sing' Florence is shown as having a teddy bear as a little girl, she doesn't batter an eyelid at Doc's ethnicity and doesn't remark about the idea of a female doctor. (Florence Nightingale was born in 1820, teddy bears were invented in 1902.)



* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: The show seems to have something of a following in Argentina. For that matter, there are also fans in Germany itself.

* ShipTease: Lambie and Stuffy are depicted as being very close at times. They even share a slow dance in "Walkin-Talkin Time".
*** Helpful to note that when they slow dance, it's to a love song being sung by a Walkie-Talkie, Walter, about how much he loves and needs his better half, Gracie.
** Any feelings other than friendship might be one sided on Stuffy's part since Lambie seems more outright infatuated with Sir Kirby and Awesome Guy whereas Stuffy makes regular comments and gestures that hint at his trying to get her attention.
*** In "The Rip Heard 'Round The World" Stuffy seems the most apprehensive for Lambie's stitches procedure, but tells her '[Doc] loves you...we all do.' The way he deliberately pauses and then says 'we all do' could easily be read as shipteasing on a preschool level and the equivalent of him saying 'I love you.'
*** Another example that there might be at least some kind of one sided feelings is in "Lamb In A Jam" when Lambie is getting ready to leave with Doc for the day and Stuffy, while hugging Lambie, says in what might be considered a pleading/vulnerable tone 'Don't be gone too long, ok?'


* JustHereForGodzilla: Some people watch the show solely because Creator/SteveBlum is the voice of Commander Crush and Sidney.

** An assistant director of sexual violence advocacy and prevention [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/elizabeth-howley/thank-you-doc-mcstuffins_b_7042878.html praised]] the episode "Commander No" in which a toy didn't want to be tickled and the other toy that was doing it didn't stop because she didn't think that he really meant "no." The episode makes it clear in no uncertain terms that, yeah, he really did.

* OlderThanTheyThink: There's been a lot of rave reviews about how this is the first show of its type with a black protagonist since something like ''WesternAnimation/FatAlbertAndTheCosbyKids'', but seem to have forgotten about ''WesternAnimation/LittleBill'', which is even more entertaining when you consider that ''Little Bill'' was created in part by the person who created this show, Chris(tine) Nee.

* PeripheryHatedom: Unsurprisingly, a small group of people, apparently mostly bored teenagers, have taken a disliking to Lambie due to her TastesLikeDiabetes nature.


** Similarly, the show inverts the "traditional" family view: Doc's mother works a high-paying and demanding job, and her father is a stay-at-home dad who does activities traditionally associated with femininity, such as cooking and gardening. But they're clearly a happy, well-balanced couple that's doing a great job raising their kids, which quietly attacks old-fashioned ideas of men working and [[StayInTheKitchen women being homemakers]]. (Although a supplementary book, ''Doc [=McStuffins=]: My World'' indicates that her father [[AllThereInTheManual is a chef]]. So, yeah, still cooking, but on a professional level.)

Which puts rather a different spin on it, since females have actually struggled to be accepted in the world of professional cooking.)
