The Doc Is In

"It's a Hard Doc Life!" is an episode of Doc McStuffins. It premiered on April 18, 2020 and the series´s finale


After making a big mistake at the McStuffinsville Toy Hospital, Doc begins to wonder if her patients would have been better off if she hadn't been there at all.


Doc is overwhelmed because she is in charge of the new water wing construction; she has to interview toys to work for the water wing, and her patients and staff in the McStuffinsville Toy Hospital still need her. The stress causes her to accidentally give Boppy the wrong prescription which makes him overinflate, then she ends up making the Water Wing deflate, leading to the hospital getting flooded. When Doc tells her toys that she had to stay and clean up the mess, her toys tell her to go home and rest. Doc believes that her patients don’t need her anymore, so she returns home.

When she returns home, her mother explains that everyone makes mistakes, including doctors, but the important thing is about learning from them and says that tomorrow would be a better day. That night, after she falls asleep, Hallie appears to her in a dream and shows what the world would be like without Doc McStuffins.

First, Hallie takes Doc back to the past to the time when Sir Kirby and the Wicked King got stuck together. However, Doc was not around to fix them, and they never figured out how to get unstuck. And then showed her some more.

She then takes her to the present time and finds out that McStuffinsville has become a barren wasteland taken over by Stanley. Bathtub lake was out of water, Nicki’s bank for safe keeping was taken over by Stanley, and the Toy Hospital was renamed to “Stanley’s No Hospital for Toys.”

Finally, Hallie transports Doc to the future, where every toy in McStuffinsville is being forced to go to Stanley's tower. Now realizing how much toys need her, Doc wakes up happy to see all her friends.

She returns to McStuffinsville the next day and apologizes for the mishap with the water wing and promises to always be there for her patients. Doc and her friends build together a Hospital Water Wing and the Water Wing is open. Doc and her toys gave each other one last group hug, before ending the series.
