Disney Junior has ordered fourth seasons of animated preschool hits Doc McStuffins and Sofia the First — which holds the record for the top two cable TV telecasts of all time with kids 2-5. Sofia, developed by Craig Gerber, has also received an Emmy Award,while Doc McStuffins was recently honored with an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Children’s Program.
Sofia the First centers on a kind young girl who becomes a princess when her mom marries the king. While she lives in an enchanted fairytale world of castles, wizards and flying horses, Sofia experiences many of the same social situations as young viewers at home including fitting in at school, navigating sibling relationships and learning the importance of telling the truth. Throughout her journeys, Sofia takes on challenges and adventures that lead her to these valuable life lessons and also help her discover the true meaning of being a princess.
Doc McStuffins focuses on a young girl who communicates with and heals stuffed animals and broke toys out of her backyard playhouse clinic. Created and executive produced by Humanitas Prize and Emmy Award-winning Chris Nee, Doc McStuffins season four 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.
