LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Doc McStuffins” is keeping her medical practice open for another year.
The Disney Junior channel said Wednesday it has ordered a fifth season of the Peabody Award-winning animated series.
The title character of “Doc McStuffins” is an African-American girl who dreams of becoming a physician and, in the meantime, runs a clinic for dolls and stuffed animals.
Doc has made impressive friends — first lady Michelle Obama appeared in an episode — and become an influential role model for children and adults.
