I have many conflicting feelings about this show. It has a few good qualities that don't seem to outweigh its bad ones. The best thing about this show is definitely the concept, and no, I'm not talking about toys coming to life. I'm talking about the shows incredibly creative twist on teaching children to not be afraid of trips to the doctor. However, the show isn't TOO creative, meaning that it's different take on this lesson isn't so unrecognizable to what it's referencing that it becomes unrelatable to the target audience. For example, the message of not being afraid of needles is taught by having a soccer ball being afraid of getting pumped up. Kids can still relate to what the soccer ball is going through. The best thing about this however, is that this can also teach kids how to make connections with characters. Unfortunately, that is the only thing this show does COMPLETELY right. Everything else is only done partially correctly. One of these aspects is the voice acting. The voice acting is pretty decent for the most part, I feel some of the best comes from our main group of toys (Stuffy, Hallie, and the Wicked King come to mind.) However, there are also many bad voice actors, such as that of Mr. Mcstuffins, and Doc herself. Mr. Mcstuffins is bland enough of a character as it is, but part of that is due to how the voice actor puts absolutely no emotion or personality into the character, he sort of just says his lines like a casual person telling a story. Doc on the other hand isn't quite as bad as Mr. Mcstuffins, but half of her dialogue comes out sounding VERY awkward and unnatural. The animation is mediocre, even by television standards for CGI. The character movements are often very stiff and awkward, especially on the humans. The songs are pretty meh, I mean, not the songs they sing every episode like the "Time for your check-up song" or the "I feel better song." I'm talking about the songs that are written for the episode. They are really bad. The lyrics often follow a basic ABCB rhyme scheme, or just repeat lyrics over and over again, or both. They do almost nothing to further the plot, and sometimes feel like a desperate attempt to pad the episode out so it hits 11 minutes. The writing is decent by preschool show standards, but it doesn't do anything special. I mean, there are a few exceptions. The writers occasionally throw in a decent joke, such as one episode where Doc diagnoses a water sprayer toy with a king toy inside of it with "Tummy ala King." However, the writing can get really bad sometimes. For instance, out of nowhere Lamby starts exhibiting strange behaviors in which she's obsessing about having a mermaid toy as a friend. You just have to see the episode to understand how strange this is, but trust me, it it just... weird, to say the least. All in all, Doc Mcstuffins, despite its flaws, is still an okay pick for kids. I mean, most of the problems I have are things young children won't care about, but still, I wish the showrunners would put just the tiniest bit more effort into this show. Unfortunately, the show falls just short of being a top pick for kids in my book.
