Doc McStuffins Wiki

"Hooty's Duty" is the first segment of the eighty-seventh episode of the Disney Junior series Doc McStuffins, which premiered on March 18, 2016.


When Doc realizes that the arrival of a new baby means a new group of baby toys will also be coming home, she seeks to put one of her own toys in charge of them, and Professor Hootsburgh proudly volunteers for the job.

Lambie: Is the new baby here yet? Ooh, I can't wait for baa-aby cuddles.
Doc: No baby yet. You'll just have to settle for my cuddles. (Both laughing)

Doc: The baby shower's gonna start pretty soon, and the new baby's gonna get lots of gifts.
Lambie: Like cuddly blankies.
Chilly: Bottles.
Stuffy: Rattles.
Professor Hootsburgh: Books.
Hallie: Diapers.
Doc: And toys.
All toys: Toys?!
Doc: That's right. I'm sure all the new toys will be wonderful, but I don't want to leave the new baby to be cared for by brand-new rookie toys. I'm asking for a volunteer to live in the nursery and teach the new toys everything they need to be a great McStuffins New Baby toy.

Army Al: I don't know, but I've been told.
Doc and toys: I don't know, but I've been told.
Army Al: A baby isn't very old.
Doc and toys: A baby isn't very old.
Everyone: Hup, two, three, four. Hup two, three four.
Army Al: Company halt.

Doc: For the next exercise, Stuffy will pretend to be a baby.
Stuffy: Roar!
Lambie: Yeah, um, I don't think babies roar.
Stuffy: (Laughs) Sorry. Ga-ga boo-boo. Ga-ga boo-boo!

Lambie: I remember when Doc was a baby. She used to get baby drool all over me.
