Brown Bag Films animated series Doc McStuffins wins Peabody Award
The Brown Bag Films series Doc McStuffins has been awarded a Peabody Award, one of the most prestigious awards in broadcasting.
Disney Junior’s pre-school series, which was recently renewed for a fourth series, was cited for its disarming, inspiring storytelling about a female, African-American doctor’s daughter who “treats” other kids’ broken toys. Charming, sweet and gently humorous, this animated series, featuring an African-American physician’s daughter who attends to damaged stuffed animals and other broken toys, allays children’s fears about doctor visits even as it promotes medicine as a profession.
The Peabody Awards program, named for American businessman and philanthropist George Peabody, recognizes distinguished and meritorious public service by American radio and television stations, networks, online media, producing organizations, and individuals.
All the winners will be presented with their awards on Sunday, May 31,in a ceremony at Cipriani Wall Street in New Yor.
