    Over the weekend an episode of Doc McStuffins entitled “The Emergency Plan” aired featuring a doll family that consisted of two moms and two children. In the episode, the doll couple (voiced by Wanda Sykes and Portia de Rossi) is separated by an Earthquake cause by one of the other toys in McStuffinsville because they do not have an emergency plan and concludes with them creating one after being reunited by Doc and her team.  

    While many praised the episode for its inclusion and diversity we know, theres always one. Organization ‘One Million Moms‘ has their panties in a bunch over ‘The Emergency Plan’ accusing McStuffins creator Chris Nee (who is an out lesbian) of pushing “an agenda” and veering away from family friendly content. They even go so far as to urge other “conservative families” to write to Disney urging them not to air the episode with the ultimatum being Disney not being allowed in their homes for “fear” of seeing commercials, reruns or previews of the episode. Dramatic much? 

    I can’t speak for anyone at Disney but I’m sure they’re paying One Million Moms no mind. Check out “The Emergency Plan” on Disney Junior or watch online here. As always, leave your thoughts in the comments below!

    On Sunday June 4th Doc, Audrey and Hannah (Audrey’s doll) will all be coming to Disney Junior at 8am EDT to tackle a special subject on an episode of Doc McStuffins. Audrey is a 4 year old little girl going through chemotherapy whose doll comes to the Doc for a problem that causes her to lose her hair also. This episode is even more special in the fact that GMA news anchor Robin Roberts (a cancer survivor) plays the voice of Audrey’s mom. 

    While cancer may seem like too deep of a topic for preschoolers, Leukemia is the most common cancer in children and teens and Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia usually peaks between ages 2 and 4. Children’s hospitals across the country are going to hold special advance screenings of the episode for patients. Love it Disney! 

    “Hannah the Brave” airs on Sunday June 4th at 8am EST on Disney Channel. Will you be tuning in?
