Unathi Msengana lending her voice to Rita the Cheetah in an episode of Doc McStuffins on Disney Junior on 16 June.

Unathi Msengana is lending her voice for an episode of the pre-school edutainment series Doc McStuffins on Disney Junior (DStv 309).

The Idols judge on M-Net will voice Rita the Cheetah in an episode of the second season of Doc McStuffins which will be broadcast on 16 June at 08:20 with a repeat at 13:20.

In the episode entitled "No Sweetah Cheetah", Rita is initially worried that she might be ill when she discovers that she's covered in spots. Then she's told that her spots are part of what makes her special and that they're a gift.

"I can't wait to sit down on the couch with my children and watch their faces as they hear my voice in Doc McStuffins," says Unathi Msengana in a press release.

"To be able to bring a local voice to Doc McStuffins is an absolute thrill for us," says Christine Service, the senior vice president and country manager for The Walt Disney Company Africa in the press release.

"The series exemplifies Disney's brand values of celebrating one's family and appreciating diversity and difference," says Christine Service.
