"Stuffy's Wild Pet" is the first segment of the one-hundred and fifteenth episode of the Disney Junior show Doc McStuffins which premiered on January 12, 2018.


When the students go on a safari with Wildlife Will, Stuffy tries to make a wild zebra he names Zane his pet, but he gets more than he bargained for since Zane as a wild animal couldn't be easily trained

Doc: This is so exciting. I've never been on a safari before.
Chilly: I'm not even scared. As long as we don't see any wild animals, I will be totally fine.
Hallie: Sugar, do you know what a safari is?
Chilly: It's when you go into the wild, and look at things that are far away. That's why they call it a sa-far-i.
Doc: Chilly, a safari is like a journey where you see lots of wild animals up close.
Chilly: If you see 'em up close, why do they call it a safari? They should call it a sa-near-i.
Doc: We're perfectly safe, Chilly. Besides, our guide is a wildlife expert.

Wildlife Will: Now before we head out on our safari, are there any questions?
Stuffy: Uh, I got one. What do you get when you cross a penguin with a bowling ball?
Wildlife Will: I don't know. What?
Stuffy: I don't know. You asked if we had any questions.

Doc: (About the safari) A lot of our animal friends live out here.
Wildlife Will: It's their natural habitat.

Lambie: (Hears whimpering) Oh, Chilly, the safari isn't that scary.
Stuffy: That wasn't Chilly. It was coming from over there. I'm gonna go see what it is. [Finds a zebra] It's a zebra. Hey, buddy, are you hurt? [The zebra whimpers] Oh, I get it. You're a wild animal toy, so you don't talk. Well, that's okay. I'm an animal expert.

Doc: Stuffy.
Stuffy: Oh, hiya, Doc. This big guy was just thanking me for fixing his hoof.
Doc: Great job, Stuffy.
Stuffy: [Gets knocked down by the zebra] He's thanking me again. Okay, I get it. You're better. You can stop knocking me over now. [Gets knocked over]
Doc: Wow. He really likes you.
Stuffy: I really like him, too. We have that special zebra-dragon connection I've heard so much about. Or maybe I just made that up.

Doc: Zane is healthy, but he's a wild animal toy. He belongs in the wild.
Stuffy: So what does that mean?
Doc: It means wild animal toys, just like real wild animals, don't make good pets, because they usually can't be tamed or trained.
Wildlife Will: And that can be dangerous.
Lambie: It's like they say. You can't teach a wild zebra to act like a pet. Well, they don't actually say that, but I think it has a nice ring to it.
Doc: I can say it another way. Zane was made to be wild.

Stuffy: So there's nothing wrong with my vet skills, or my pet skills?
Doc: Nothing at all. You're great with animals.
Stuffy: [Hugs Doc] Ha ha, thanks, Doc.

Doc: [After he releases Zane] How you doing, Stuffy?
Stuffy: I'm okay. I'll miss Zane, but he seems so much happier now. I know that he belongs out here in the wild. [Squibbles jumps into Stuffy's arms] Oh, hey, Squibbles. Now you are a really great pet. What do you all say we head back to the pet park and play fetch with Squibbles?
Doc: That sounds like a great idea.
