DVD REVIEW: Doc McStuffins - Mobile Clinic @ 28 March 2014 08:46 PM
Doc McStuffins is one of those children's shows with such a clear-cut, logical premise that it makes one wonder why no one thought of it years ago. Kids love to play with their toys, kids love to pretend to take care of them, kids love to act like authority figures, yet they want to be reassured about fears, social issues, the unknown, facing pain and so on.

This series deals with so many of these things with such seamless skill, only a few of the messages seem less than subtle. Charm and warmth don't seem synthetic -- Doc has a loving, supportive family and wants to be a doctor like her mother. It's as if Marcella of the Raggedy Ann books was more of a mover and shaker, but in a nice way.

(Trivia note for Brady Bunch fans: the voice of Stuffy is Robbie Rist, who played the infamous, shark-jumping Cousin Oliver.)
