The actor is quite excited to be part of the animated series as he is reportedly a big fan of animation. He also thinks that the cartoon series has a great message for kids.
“I’m a fan of Doc McStuffins … I think it has a great message [and] great creativity. I love everything about it,” he told the website. “I think it’s good because it really shows kids how to take care of themselves and to look at it differently whenever they get hurt as opposed to feeling bad about it."
