GENERAL THOUGHTS

This was the second Strawberry Shortcake cartoon.
This is strictly an opinion, but I really think this one had the worst animation of all the SSC specials.

Coco Nutwork got on my nerves in this one. I didn't like him at all. A normally funny bit to me in Looney Toons cartoons is when Bugs Bunny dresses in drag to fool his adversaries. In this special, Coco Nutwork dressed as a girl to show off the gazebo, which was first prize in the bake off (a la Vanna White). That sort of killed my enthusiasm for Coco Nutwork, even though there wasn't any to begin with. Thank goodness he never returned!

I was a bit upset that Tomale De Mole, Tea 'n Honey and Horseradish never returned after this special. Also, Plum Puddin' disappeared after this one, and didn't come back until two specials later!


QUOTES
