Hallie Hippo is one of the main characters from Doc McStuffins. She is a sweet yet sassy, but very beautiful-looking stuffed plush purple hippopotamus in a candy striper nurse's outfit who loves to help her and Doc's patients in the clinic and the Toy Hospital.
Despite her sweetness and beauty, Hallie is sassy and has a southern accent. She is Doc's nurse in the toy clinic and loves to help every toy. Hallie is a little tomboyish in the way she talks. She often uses food-based images and comparisons. She cares a lot about everyone and everything, and Doc would be lost without her in the clinic. But she is not against having fun!
Hallie is a rotund stuffed purple hippo with a beige snout, wears red teardrop glasses, a red and white striped apron with a yellow nametag with her name on it, a white shirt, and a red and white hat. While going out in snowy weather Hallie wears blue earmuffs and a mint green scarf. she also wore brown earmuffs in later seasons, a red coat, blue mittens, and purple boots. In "Leilani's Lu'au", she wore a hula skirt at the luau party. When Doc and the toys traveled back to the 1800s in "Let the Nightingale Sing", Hallie was given an old fashioned nurse's outfit. When treating pets in season 3, Hallie wore a green shirt with dark pink paw prints on it. On St. Patrick's Day in "St. Patrick's Day Dilemma" Hallie wore a green shamrock hat.
When going out on a rescue mission in McStuffinsville, Hallie wears a navy blue rescue life coat with light blue and orange stripes. During "The Sleepwalking King" Hallie wore a pajama dress. The top was a light blue type color with one button in the middle and the bottom was pink with pictures of penguins at the bottom of the dress. After accidentally becoming a baby toy in "Lambie and the McStuffins Babies" Hallie's outfit changed into a white and pink outfit and she was given a light pink bib with darker pink ridges on the outside.
In "Whole Lotta Hula" at Leilani's luau, Hallie wore a really light blue dress with different patterns on it. At the end of the episode, she wore a brown hat. In "Daisy Makes the Call" she wore a light blue dress for Sir Kirby's blue soiree. Hallie had on a yellow and blue tiara. In "On Call Ball", she wore a yellow dress and a yellow tiara for The Wicked King's Ball.
While going on pet rescue missions in Season 5, Hallie wears a green pet rescue life coat with two magenta pockets. In "Toys in Space", Hallie wears a space outfit and helmet in space. In "Stuffy's Safari", Hallie wears a brown safari hat and coat.
Role in the series
Hallie is often shown helping Doc with patients in the clinic. She is kind and gentle to the toys that need help and is a great nurse.
During "Huggable Hallie" we find out that Hallie once had a computer chip in her chest that when hugged, would cause her to say the sorts of things a nurse might say. Doc was entirely unaware of this until the chip came loose and migrated to Hallie's left foot, and causing it to "talk" whenever she would take a step. After having her mother remove the chip, Doc decided not to replace it since she believed Hallie was perfect with or without it.
