Disney has featured many princesses in its TV shows and movies through the years -- but never a little girl princess. Until now. This animated series features Sofia, an ordinary girl who becomes a princess overnight when her mom marries the king. The adventurous young girl, first introduced in the 2012 TV movie "Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess," must learn how to adjust to royal life. Offering Sofia words of wisdom are classic princesses -- including Ariel, Belle and Jasmine -- who make special appearances as they help advise the youngster during her transition to royalty. Throughout her journey, Sofia learns that it isn't having a title that imparts royal demeanor; it's that having the characteristics of honesty, loyalty, compassion and grace make one worthy of the role.
When magical princess Star Butterfly receives a royal magic wand for her 14th birthday, she proves to her parents that she is not ready for the responsibility that comes with it.

Upon her arrival, Star is given a family to help guide her, so she moves in with the Diaz family, which includes teenage son Marco. Star takes Marco with her as she battles villains -- both in their high school and throughout the universe -- as she attempts to protect her powerful wand.
Mickey Mouse may have been on a steamboat in one of his first animated shorts back in the 1920s, but his mode of transportation has been upgraded to a roadster in this series. Mickey and his friends participate in high-speed races in their hometown, Hot Dog Hills, and around the world in vehicles that can transform. The familiar names joining Mickey on the track are Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck and Pluto. Off the track, Minnie and Daisy are busy running a business with which they solve problems for people in need. A number of celebrities -- including real-life race car drivers Jimmie Johnson, Danica Patrick and Jeff Gordon -- lend their voices to the series in guest-starring roles.

Like any good doctor, Doc has assistants helping her at her clinic. Her stuffed animal friends who assist Doc include exceedingly proud dragon Stuffy, cuddly best friend Lambie and caring hippo nurse Hallie. Whether it's loose stitching, low batteries or a blow-up toy that has sprung a leak, Doc and her friends are there to fix up the stuffed animals and toys.
Everyone is familiar with the story of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," but there's never been a follow-up that lets people know what happened after Goldilocks found the porridge that was just right. "Goldie and Bear" fixes that by reuniting the girl with Bear as they begin a new, unexpected friendship. Along with their friends and neighbors -- who are all taken from popular storybook tales -- Goldie and Bear seek out fun and adventures, which include helping Jack and Jill get up that infamous hill and rescuing Humpty Dumpty after his great fall. While the episodes might be filled with fairy-tale characters, they provide valuable real-life lessons for children, including how to develop friendships.
