In the upcoming ‘Doc McStuffins’ episoded titled ‘Doc McStuffins Goes to Washington,’ Doc and the toys travel to Washington D.C. to meet the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama. Airing on Disney Channel on Child Health Day (Monday, October 5, 2015) at 9:00 am, the First Lady invites Doc and other kids who are making a difference in their community to the White House to be honored in a special ceremony. While there, the First Lady appoints Doc the official ‘toy doctor’ for the White House.
The episode incorporates key messages surrounding the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative, which helps kids and families lead healthier lives through eating healthy and staying active. Let’s Move! is about putting children on the path to a healthy future during their earliest months and years; giving parents helpful information and fostering environments that support healthy choices; providing healthier foods in our schools; ensuring that every family has access to healthy, affordable food; and helping children become more physically active. Last November, the First Lady hosted military families at The White House for a private screening of a special Veterans Day episode of ‘Doc McStuffins.’
WATCH Disney Junior and the WATCH Disney Junior app for mobile and connected TV devices will debut a full-length preview of the episode on Monday, September 28.
