Doc McStuffins has never been one to miss a beat, which is why the Disney character is set to celebrate National Winnie the Pooh Day on January 18 in a special crossover episode.

“Into the Hundred Acre Wood” will follow Doc and her toys as they welcome Winnie the Pooh and his friends to McStuffinville. It will also feature two new original songs, “Follow That Bear!” and “Think Heavy Thoughts,” which are both written and produced by Michelle Lewis, Kay Hanley and Dan Petty.

The episode will also include guest stars Jim Cummings as Winnie the Pooh and Tigger, Travis Oates as Piglet and Oliver Bell as Christopher Robin. The special episode was written by McStuffins‘ creator Chris Nee and directed by Brónagh O’Hanlon.

The crossover comes as Doc McStuffins was renewed for a fifth season and will be featured in an exhibit at the world’s largest children’s museum in Indianapolis. The show consistently ranks in the top 10 preschool series on cable, and each episode averages more than 16 million views on the Disney Junior App.
