First Lady Michelle Obama is going to be appearing in an upcoming episode of Disney Junior’s popular Doc McStuffins.

The First Lady appears as herself on the series, when a group of children visit 1600 Pennsylvania for a tour. In a clip released by Disney Junior the First Lady praises the kids for making a difference in their communities.

According to Variety, the First Lady later appoints Doc McStuffins to the position of “official toy doctor” at the White House. Talk about adorable. [Time]

I wish I’d had this type of representation on children’s shows when I was a little girl.  I’m so happy for all the little children of color who will get to witness this.  It’s so important.  Kudos to Disney and the show’s executive producers for making this happen, and a special kudos to the First Lady for agreeing to do it.

Check out the sneak peek below.

The episode is slated to air on Monday, Oct. 5 on Disney Junior.
