We've got some absolutely INCREDIBLE news!
Our favourite toy doctor is going to meet some very special friends in the Hundred Acre Wood… that's right! Doc McStuffins will be featuring the beloved Winnie the Pooh and friends in a special crossover episode debuting on Disney Junior on January 18th, that's National Winnie the Pooh Day to all you people in the know!
In the episode, entitled “Into the Hundred Acre Wood!”, the gang from McStuffinsville and the Hundred Acre Wood must bandy together to help none other than the world's most beloved, honey-loving bear, Winnie the Pooh!
“Winnie the Pooh books and animation have always been hugely important to me, so it's a personal dream come true to be able to bring together the worlds of the Hundred Acre Wood and McStuffinsville, especially since Christopher Robin is the original human famous for talking to his stuffed animals and toys,” Doc McStuffins creator and executive producer Chris Nee said.
“This episode is an homage to the original Disney animation and storytelling styles, from the original songs, including a hat tip to the Sherman Brothers, to the visuals which evoke old school Winnie the Pooh.”
The episode will be featuring two original songs, Follow That Bear! and Think Heavy Thoughts, both written and produced by Michelle Lewis, Kay Hanley and Dan Petty. Winnie the Pooh will also be singing the iconic Doc McStuffins song I Feel Better. Does it really get any better than that?
The episode will guest star Jim Cummings as Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, Travis Oates as Piglet, Peter Cullen as Eeyore and Oliver Bell as Christopher Robin.
Into the Hundred Acre Wood! was written by Chris Nee and directed by Brónagh O'Hanlon.
