Doc McStuffins Wiki

"Tea Party Tantrum" is the first segment of the third episode of the Disney Junior series Doc McStuffins, which premiered on March 26, 2012.


Doc wonders why Susie Sunshine, a doll, is acting very cranky.


Emmie had stayed overnight at Doc's for a sleepover but they both ended up giggling pretty late into the night so they were a little tired while having breakfast. Doc even accidently pours orange juice in her cereal because of how she couldn't think clearly without sleep. Doc's dad points out that some people get cranky and some people get spacey, and it can be hard to think clearly the next day if they don't have enough sleep. Before Emmie goes home she and Doc have one more tea party and Doc's father joins them. After Emmie leaves to go home Doc brings her toys to life and they continue with the tea party. However Doc, Stuffy, and Lambie soon notice that Susie Sunshine is acting very cranky so Doc and the toys try to find a way to help Susie with her crankiness.

During Susie's check-up, Doc notices that Susie is yawning, and when she lies down, Doc finds that her eyes don't close! It looks like Susie's eyes are stuck open, so Doc diagnoses her with "EyesWide-itis", meaning her eyes are stuck open, and she wasn't able to get any sleep last night. Doc discovers something sticky around Susie's eyelashes, and remembers that she and Emmie had pineapple ice pops the night before, before they played with Susie and Lambie. She deduces that some of the juice must have stuck to Susie's eyelashes while they played, which caused her eyes to stick up and prevent her from sleeping that night, making her cranky in the morning. Using wet wipes, Doc unsticks Susie's eyes, and lets her take a nap to cure her "EyesWide-itis". After she wakes up, she is feeling much happier, and is ready to have a tea party!

At the tea party, everyone has fun, and everyone is glad that Susie is feeling better, and full of sunshine.
