Amanda Deibert Wasn’t The Only One Bursting With Happiness.

In the episode, the family lives through a scary earthquake and learns the importance of having a safety plan in case of emergencies. Except that wasn’t the groundbreaking scene. It’s the series’ decision to feature a same-sex couple, voiced by actors Portia de Rossi and Wanda Sykes, who are both lesbians and it’s breaking the norms.

“I am a fan of Doc McStuffins. My kids, they watch the show. With this episode, they see a family that looks like our family.” Skye’s explained.

However, Not Everyone Is Ecstatic About The Episode.

A conservative group that goes by name One Million Moms urged others to call Disney and demand that the episode should never air.

“If producers air this episode as originally planned, then conservative families will have no choice but to no longer watch Disney Channel Network in their homes so they can avoid previews, commercials, and reruns.” The group resorted to threats.

The episode however did air and many people stood by it. The hashtag #StandWithDoc has also been trending like crazy.

Many People Have Been Positively Affected By The Episode.

The Equation Adds Up Perfectly.

Seem’s Like Disney Made The Right Decision.

“We’re two moms, and we have a boy and girl, two kids. It’s going to be very exciting for them to see that, to see our family represented.” Skye’s continued.

See how Disney and Wanda Sykes are teaching families two valuable lessons in one episode of Doc McStuffins.
