The Disney Channel has debuted its few same sex couple on the hit show "Good Luck Charlie." The lesbian couple made an appearance on the show on Sunday, according to a Jan. 28 report by the Daily Mail.

In the episode, Amy and Bob Duncan set up a playdate for their daughter Charlie. It turns out that Charlie's friend's has two mothers.

This shouldn't entirely come as a shock to fans. The Disney Channel hinted last June that they would add a same sex couple to one of their television shows.

A spokesperson told TV Guide, "This particular storyline was developed under the consultancy of child development experts and community advisors. Like all Disney Channel programming, it was developed to be relevant to kids and families around the world and to reflect themes of diversity and inclusiveness."

Extreme Disney Channel and Disney Parks fans weren't happy to hear about the news. Right-wing group One Million Moms expressed their anger. This group is best known for boycotting JCPenney after the retail store hired Ellen DeGeneres as its spokesperson.

It's not certain how many times the same sex couple will appear on "Good Luck Charlie." The show will wrap its final of season four on Feb. 16 with a special one-hour episode.
