Doc McStuffins Wiki

"Stuck Up" is the second segment of the eighth episode of the Disney Junior series Doc McStuffins, which premiered on April 2, 2012.


When Doc accidentally gets sand in her eye, she finds out what's wrong with Will's toy digger, Riggo, when his scoop gets stuck.


Doc is at the park swinging on the swing and watching her little brother Donny and his friend Will play with their construction toys Buddy the Dump Truck and Riggo the Bulldozer. After a sand avalanche, Riggo's scoop ends up stuck so Donny calls Doc over to help. Doc takes Riggo, Buddy, Stuffy, Lambie, and Squeakers to the castle to try and fix Riggo's stuck scoop. Once there Doc brings the toys to life and gives Riggo a checkup.

At first, she is confused as to what is wrong with him. Riggo doesn't feel sore or tired, just stuck, and when he tries to move his scoop down, it hurts. Then, Donny runs up to her and accidentally kicks sand into Doc's eye. Doc goes to her mother for help, and she washes the sand out of Doc's eye with water. Donny apologizes, and is told to be careful around sand, and not to kick it around, or else it could get into someone's eye.

This gives Doc an idea, and she runs back to the toys. She takes out her magnifying glass and looks at Riggo's scoop, where she sees the sand in his joints. Riggo realizes that this must have happened because of the avalanche, and Doc diagnoses him with "Sandy Scoop Syndrome", meaning that his scoop is stuck up because sand has locked his joints. Luckily, Doc has an idea on how to fix it. She takes Riggo and the toys to the water fountain, and Stuffy and Lambie fill Squeakers up with water. They, then squeeze Squeakers so that the water will wash out Riggo's joints and clear the sand away! Once they are done, Riggo's scoop can move again! He and Buddy are excited to build together, and Doc reminds him to be careful with sand. Will is really happy that Doc was able to fix Riggo, and so is Lambie, and Doc states that sometimes, she really, really, really, really loves her job.
