Here’s A Look At The Disney Channel Episode That Caused One Million Moms To Have A Meltdown [VIDEO]

A few days ago One Million Moms had yet another meltdown over a positive portrayal of a gay family in the media, this time aiming their fury at the Disney Channel. Today we get a look at the show, which aired yesterday.

Via press release from GLAAD:

This weekend, Disney Junior and The Disney Channel broke new ground on the successful animated children’s television series Doc McStuffins, airing an episode featuring two moms as the heads of a household that learns the importance of putting a plan in place for unexpected emergencies.

The episode entitled, “The Emergency Plan,” finds the two doll moms, voiced by out actors Wanda Sykes and Portia de Rossi, caught unprepared when a toy dragon causes an “earthquake” by jumping up an down. The family becomes separated, and Doc reunites them and shows them how to make emergency kits.

“Children like mine deserve the chance to see their families reflected on TV, and this episode does just that in a beautiful and positive way,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of GLAAD, the world’s largest LGBTQ media advocacy organization. “Shows like this reflect our real world, and today that includes the many children being raised by gay and lesbian parents who are all going to celebrate this story.”

    was it the interracial aspect?
    The fact that a black woman was portrayed as middle class?
    Or a lesbian couple?
    That pissed off One Mom in A Million?

    • Yes

      ‘Lesbians? With children?? An African American… girl… doctor??? I’ve never been so livid in my entire life!’

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      I’m guessing that aren’t too happy with anything Wanda does.

    • CriticalDragon1177

      Its the fact that they’re a lesbian couple, but only about 40 or 50 years ago, them being an interracial couple would have also caused an uproar.

      • Hanwi

        My cousin, white gal, is married to a black guy, they met in the Air Force. They have a wonderful family but they still get harrassed in the midwest for their marriage.

        • CriticalDragon1177

          Not surprised. Unfortunately racism hasn’t died off yet either.

        • Todd20036

          Hmmm. Your ass wearing chaps….

          Sorry. Had to.

        • Bad Tom

          Really sorry to hear that.

    • Mikey

      even “one mom in a million” probably over-estimates their numbers.

      • CriticalDragon1177

        I don’t even think there are a million moms, yet alone a million people in their disgusting organization. Its probably only a few hundred people at most who belong to that group.

        • Todd20036

          It’s a play on the “Million Man March” that occurred back under Jessie Jackson

          There aren’t a million people. Hell, their organization is probably mostly comprised of men

          • David Walker

            Men who use the women’s bathroom and changing rooms at Walmart and who haven’t the faintest idea what “transgender” means.

          • Octavio

            But the know a smart pair of espadrilles when they see them.

            Hi David! Long time reader of JMG but I rarely post. I always enjoy your posts as well as a number of others’ posts here. I’ve been thinking about you lately. This time of the year is probably difficult for you but know you are in my heart! Take care, my friend! (I almost feel like I know you.). All the best to you!

          • David Walker

            Thank you, Jwmvh. I got through the first anniversary of The Day pretty well. I appreciate your thoughtfulness. Please take good care yourself. We need us.

          • berberine

            Louis Farrakhan, not Jessie Jackson, called for the march. Jackson did give a speech at the event though.

            Those last two lines are the most important. They succinctly explain why the organization exists.

          • thatotherjean

            Bryan Fischer must be one busy man, because One Million Moms certainly has issues!

        • 2guysnamedjoe

          “One Million Moms” = “One Grouchy Old Klansman”.

          • CriticalDragon1177

            In all seriousness I wouldn’t be surprised if some of them weren’t also members of Klan. Racism and homophobia often go hand in hand.

        • Mikey

          I suspect it’s a guy with a couple of mirrors and a smoke machine.

          • Palmer

            And a curtain?

      yes…. in monicas world…women of color are ONLY supposed to push Hoovers (sigh)

  • Oh noes. Two adult humans in a consenting relationship discussing emergency safety measures. Surely this will cause the collapse of western civilization!!! πŸ™„

      I wouldn’t be too confident that aliens can’t be every bit as dumb as humans can be.

      • bambinoitaliano

        It’s the reason the Aliens have block the Earth line. They are not even using the Disqus’s painfully clumsy spam blocking system.

      πŸ˜‰ I suppose that, at some point, scientists realized that to continue scouring the Earth for intelligent life was a complete waste of time. Especially, if they were searching among all those die-hard religious communities. The needle on the ‘Intelligent Life Meter’ barely registered anything.

  • Ninja0980

    I wonder what will freak out the bigots more?
    Two lesbians or the fact they are also an interracial couple?

    • BearEyes


    • Stephen Elliot Phillips

      I just loved the “Preserve The Memory: Can Your Miscarried Feti” segment that Karen Garver Santorum wrote!

    • bambinoitaliano

      I have not read horror comic books for awhile. This one looks downright scary. Wonder it has The Ring curse.

    • Bad Tom

      $25 bucks a pop.
      More expensive than Aviation Week and Space Technology News.
      Yes, I know it’s fake.

  • bkmn

    Like I said, for some reason a happy, well-adjusted family is a threat to the religious right.

    • TimCA

      Freedom is a threat to the religious right.

      • Todd20036

        Happiness is a threat. You don’t need to believe that an invisible sky monkey, who needs your money, will fix all your problems, if you know how to fix them yourself.

        • JCF

          “You don’t need to believe that an invisible sky monkey, who needs your money, will fix all your problems, if you know how to fix them yourself.”

          I might add you don’t need all that to be an Episcopalian, either.

  • SoCalGal20

    Meanwhile, that very sweet animated short, “In A Heartbeat” that Joe posted about the other day has gone viral and as of today has almost 20 million views on YouTube.

    • CriticalDragon1177

      Thanks. I’ve heard of that cartoon, but for some reason I never got around to watching it until now.

    • David Walker

      And while I don’t read the comments, suffice to say that at 11AM Sunday, it has 1,359,000+ up votes and only 98,000+ thumbs down. Hooray for our side!

    • Acronym Jim

      I missed it here, but fortunately found it on MissCellania.

    • Bad Tom

      Terrific, terrific film.

  • Macbill

    The Horror! The Horror!

  • bambinoitaliano

    Say a very pregnant married black woman who claimed to be a virgin gave birth to a baby boy in an abandoned house with her husband, will her story be made the best selling list of all time? Will the OMM be worshipping such miracle and claimed that the baby is some divine intervention?

    • Hanwi

      Everyone knows god is white, duh!!

    • Todd20036


    • RJ Bone

      Even if the genetics lined up, there were hundreds of witnesses and their god actually thundered from the sky that the little guy was a second coming?

      No chance anywhere, much less hell.

  • another_steve

    One Million Moms = three pot-bellied guys in their 50s, one antiquated PC.

    • CriticalDragon1177

      Wouldn’t be surprised if these actually are women. Women can be just bigoted and hateful as men. Homophobia is a human problem, not a male problem.

      • another_steve

        If you look at the history of rabid homophobia in the United States, you’ll see that the vast vast majority of serious haters are male. There are, of course, some notable women in that profession, but they’re in the small minority of professional homophobes.

        Homophobia is a first cousin of misogyny.

        It’s primarily a male sport.

    • David Walker

      Computers are easier than FAX machines, I guess. We’ll have to ask Bill Donahue about that.

    • bambinoitaliano

      Don’t forget the basement.

    • Three is a rather high number, don’t you think?

  • TimCA

    Step one : eliminate LGBT people from the media and public view.
    Step two : eliminate LGBT people physically.

    (and don’t anyone here dare tell me this wouldn’t happen if people like that could get away with it)

    • David Walker

      When the possibility raises its disturbing head, I like to wonder how, in 7 years or so, they’ll explain why so many of their children are LGBTQ, since they did away with us so long ago?

    • Kissmagrits

      Be consoled knowing that between 10 and 15% of Christianist progeny will be born LGBTQ…a continuing zero reduction.

      • Karl Dubhe

        That’s not too consoling, actually.

        Those kids will be raised in an intrinsically abusive environment. πŸ™

        They’ll be more fucked up than some of my ex’s

        • Kissmagrits

          Not necessarily… many of today’s questioning youth have already found new allies and support structures that didn’t exist for you and me. The days of cost free scapegoating are dwindling with a variety of industries and half the states leading the way.

          • RJ Bone

            Seems like there’s more acceptance now compared to two decades ago when I was in high school, at least from under my rock. Not enough, but it’s encouraging.

    • RJ Bone

      Oh you bet they would. The only reason the New Crusades haven’t begun is the illegality and the number of those who would resist.

      What’s one of the things the right does REALLY well? Projection. What do they claim we and other religions, mostly Islam, want to do to them?

      They want it BAD. But above all else, they’re cowards with toys that can kill.

  • Rebecca Gardner

    OMG! The Horror!!! Love, Education, Caring. Who condones this shit?

  • Lazycrockett

    Emergency Kits???!!!! The Lord Will Provide!

  • Lazycrockett

    Oh and I guess Aaron Carter came out as bi.

    • Tiger Quinn

      He’ll get there.

    • M Jackson

      Disney made him do it.

  • Octavio

    The evil plot of the homosexual agenda strikes again. Bwa, ha, ha, ha! πŸ™‚

  • Harveyrabbit

    I cannot watch that. I will turn me into an evil clown serial killer jesus hating demon.

    • AUGH! Post a warning to that slag; clowns are creepy as hell but DAMN!

  • 2guysnamedjoe

    What really pissed ’em off is that the emergency kits didn’t feature Jim Bakker’s Buckets o’ Slop.

  • Adonisus

    I would like to think that One Million Minions is actually just a couple of undersexed pot-bellied white dudes with a chip on their shoulder….but sadly, I live in the South and I know plenty of pearl-clutching, self-important old bitches who would fit the OMM archetype to a tee.

  • Snarkaholic

    They’re pissed off because the moms on the show didn’t buy Jim Fakker’s Aslopolypse Food Barrels?

  • JWC
  • Nic Peterson

    Thank goodness One Miserable Mom got her panties all knotted up, otherwise I would have totally missed this.

  • Raising_Rlyeh

    The worst thing about that show is the animation. Not a fan of that particular style.

  • Lizard

    “But…but…if Disney Channel portrays gay couples as completely normal, loving parents, how will we be able to brainwash our kids into thinking they’re immoral monsters?! This isn’t fair!!!”

  • Dunkerblinker

    Them bitches must go thru a shitload of xanax!!

  • M Jackson

    I will always love Wanda Sykes for this

  • Gianni
    • JCF

      That’s One Mincing Mom’s message—it ain’t Jesus’s.

    • How’d it go: Heaven for the climate, hell for the culture…?

  • JCF
  • Oscarlating Wildely

    Shocked! There is real horror here, people! I mean, the patterns that I am seeing, it’s all signs of some very poor decisions. If you care about what your kids are doing, if you care about what your kids are seeing, you need to complain immediately. These are lessons that cannot go unnoticed or unheeded. We must demand that our children not be exposed to such off taste and completely unacceptable images.

    People: That snowman is wearing spots and stripes next to each other! The horror! The horror! Will it never cease? Stella, grab my fainting couch, I feel a doozy coming on!
