Kansas City, MO — Popular children’s show Doc McStuffins features a child who plays doctor to a host of stuffed animals. The show teaches valuable moral lessons using the stuffed animals and other family members to help bring messages home to kids.
Kids and parents everywhere were shocked to learn that McStuffins, 6, is being sued for medical malpractice. McStuffins opened her clinic to the public to help area stuffed animals in need. The popular doctor got herself into hot water when she also started treating her friends. Her neighbor Charlie Robbins, 7, went to McStuffins after being stung by a bee. McStuffins used all of her medical experience but was unsuccessful in treating the boy. It turns out he was allergic to bee stings and the boy was later hospitalized in stable condition.
Lambie, McStuffins first toy, spoke to the Scooper about the incident.
“She did everything she could, we sang the check-up song and Doc diagnosed him with Beestungitis,” said Lambie. “I gave him my best cuddles when he turned blue, it didn’t help.”
The family of the boy is suing McStuffins for $6 million dollars, while the police are considering charges of practicing medicine without a license. The sign outside of McStuffins clinic said the Doc is out, there has been no word from her office.
