ACCLAIMED DISNEY JUNIOR SERIES "DOC MCSTUFFINS" INSPIRES INTERACTIVE HEALTH-FOCUSED "DOC MOBILE" TOUR, KICKING OFF SUNDAY, AUGUST 18 IN BOSTON

Season Two Premieres Friday, September 6; Upcoming Guest Stars include Geena Davis, Jeffrey Tambor, Tony Hale, Molly Shannon, Sutton Foster, Amy Sedaris and Peter MacNicol

The Doc Mobile, a 27-foot Airstream trailer custom-made to reach young kids (age 2-7) and families with fun and empowering experiences relating to health and nutrition will embark on a multi-city tour SUNDAY, AUGUST 18 in Boston. Themed "So Much You Can Do... to Take Care of You!" the initiative is inspired by Disney Junior's acclaimed "Doc McStuffins," the animated series that models good health and compassion through stories of a young girl, a would-be doctor, who cares for her ailing stuffed animals and other toys. The Doc Mobile features an area for kids to perform a "check-up" on their own toys plus other activities and age-appropriate health and wellness lessons including nutrition and physical development and fitness.

Doc McStuffins the character debuted this past weekend at Disney's D23 Expo 2013 and will be on-hand to greet fans at select stops along The Doc Mobile tour route. During the multi-city tour, kids and parents will also have the opportunity to meet real-life doctors from the Artemis Medical Society, an organization of more than 2500 female African-American physicians from around the world who formed their group after seeing a reflection of themselves in "Doc McStuffins." Recognizing the opportunity to further inspire young girls, the group serves to nurture, mentor and provide the foundation necessary to create a diverse physician workforce.

Season two of "Doc McStuffins" premieres FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 6 on Disney Channel (10:00 a.m., ET/PT) and Disney Junior (4:00 p.m., ET/PT). Guest voice stars for season two include: Geena Davis ("A League of Their Own"), Jeffrey Tambor ("Arrested Development"), Tony Hale ("Arrested Development"), Molly Shannon ("Saturday Night Live"), Tony Award-winning actress Sutton Foster ("Anything Goes"), Amy Sedaris ("Strangers with Candy") and Peter MacNicol ("Grey's Anatomy").

Also debuting that day is a preview of the season two premiere "Doc McStuffins Goes McMobile/Chip Off the Ol' Box" via WATCHDisneyJunior.com, the WATCH Disney Junior app for smartphones and tablets, and Disney Junior on Demand.
