CROSS-OVER! Pooh and crew to get a visit from Doc McStuffins
Disney Junior is embarking on a cross-over magical adventure tomorrow that will bring the Doc McStuffins and her helpful crew will be visiting helping none other than Winnie the Pooh. In this very special episode of Disney Junior’s Peabody Award-winning hit series “Doc McStuffins,” Doc ventures “Into the Hundred Acre Wood!” with her toys and welcomes Winnie the Pooh and friends to McStuffinsville.
“Into the Hundred Acre Wood!” features two original songs, “Follow That Bear!” and “Think Heavy Thoughts,” both written and produced by Michelle Lewis, Kay Hanley and Dan Petty. Winnie the Pooh also sings the series’ iconic song “I Feel Better.”
The episode begins when Doc and the toys spot Winnie the Pooh floating through the air, unable to get down. As she and the toys set out to rescue him, the wind magically transports them to the Hundred Acre Wood where they meet the rest of Pooh’s friends. Tigger, Piglet and Eeyore join Doc and the toys in the search for Pooh, in hopes of finding him in time for his favorite event of the year, The Honey Festival.
When they finally spot Pooh and try to bring him down, a tree branch rips his tummy and Doc must transport him to McStuffins Toy Hospital for emergency surgery. A worried Christopher Robin arrives and bonds with Doc over their shared ability to talk to toys, and is soon reunited with a healthy Pooh. Meanwhile, Piglet and Lambie enlist the help of McStuffinsville to throw Pooh his very own Honey Festival to make up for the one he missed.
Guest starring are Jim Cummings as Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, Travis Oates as Piglet, Peter Cullen as Eeyore and Oliver Bell as Christopher Robin. “Doc McStuffins” stars Laya DeLeon Hayes as Doc, Loretta Devine as Hallie, Lara Jill Miller as Lambie, Robbie Rist as Stuffy, Jess Harnell as Chilly, Andre Robinson as Donny McStuffins, Kimberly Brooks as Mom McStuffins, and Gary Anthony Williams as Dad McStuffins. “Into the Hundred Acre Wood!” was written by Chris Nee and directed by Brónagh O’Hanlon.
The special DOC MCSTUFFINS episode is set to debut on Disney Junior on National Winnie the Pooh Day, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 18 (7:30-8:00 p.m. EST).
