If you have a preschooler anywhere in your general vicinity, you’ve probably seen “Doc McStuffins,” the Disney Junior cartoon featuring Dottie, a 6-year-old who aspires to be a doctor like her mom, and practices medicine on her stuffed animals. Not only is it really cute, but it also shares healthy habits with kids.
A new episode premieres Friday (Jan. 10) with a special guest star: Molly Shannon, known for her work on “Saturday Night Live” and Emmy-nominated turn on “Enlightened.” She also has a new mother/daughter comedy in production with FOX. She’s busy, is what we’re saying.
Shannon voices Rita, a new toy cheetah who gets a little upset when some of the other toys tell her that her spots must mean she’s sick with “mystery pox,” setting the stage for Doc to explain that everyone is just a little different. Check out an exclusive clip available only on Zap2it:
