‘I’m a massive, massive fan of Doc McStuffins and for me this is really surreal. I spend most of my time, and most of my day when I’m with my daughter talking about Doc and watching Doc McStuffins.
‘My favourite character on the show is by far Doc. She is an incredible role model, you know, she’s a female doctor, she’s strong willed, she’s smart, she’s kind, she’s compassionate, and she celebrates everything wonderful about being a woman.’

Cartoon Network is kicking off Sept. 29 its annual Stop Bullying: Speak Up campaign with a video call-to-action encouraging people to speak up on behalf of kids who need help.
With a goal of attaining the combined voice of 1 million user-generated videos, the network is giving people the opportunity to say to the world, “I Speak Up.” By proclaiming those three words into a mobile device and sharing the video at www.StopBullyingSpeakUp.com as well as their own social media platforms using the hashtag #ISpeakUp, participants are vowing to say something if they witness bullying.
The initiative, which first launched in 2010, will culminate during Cartoon Network’s Speak Up WeekSept. 29 through Oct. 3, as a kick-off to National Bullying Prevention Month in October.
We cast the gorgeous Tinie Tempah for Cartoon Network who spoke frankly and sincerely about why it’s best to be a buddy and not a bully. Select videos from participants will become part of new campaign spots to appear on Cartoon Network, its digital platforms and Boomerang throughout October. says Michelle Jones, animation casting director – Brilliant Casting.
