In the most recent episode of Disney Junior's 'Doc McStuffins,' the series' titular character taught important lessons about emergency safety to a same-sex couple, marking the first time that a Disney Junior show has depicted a family with same-sex parents.

The episode is called 'The Emergency Plan,' and it centers around a family that gets briefly thrown into disarray when an "earthquake" is caused by a toy named Dragon-Bot jumping around. Doc McStuffin comes to the rescue, telling the family how to handle the situation by creating a plan that they can stick to ahead of time.

Though the LGBT family is at the center of the episode, their sexuality is not a focus, nor is it explicitly commented upon throughout. As with all Doc McStuffins episode, the lesson is the key takeaways.
