If you hear children laughing and singing around the television in the afternoons, more than likely they are watching their favorite cartoon. Among their favorite is the health-related cartoon antics of Doc McStuffins; a young African American girl who wants to become a doctor, like her mother. Kiara Muhammad is the voice of the lead character on Disney Jr. McStuffins spends her time healing her stuffed animals and teaching them healthy habits. The show has been a success, with a viewership of over 1 million children, ages 2 to 5.
