GENERAL THOUGHTS

This was the fifth Strawberry Shortcake cartoon made. The sixth special, Strawberry Shortcake Meets the Berrykins, made it's debut in 1985, and was not on our tape.

This special is my sister's favorite of the SSC cartoons. Her favorite character is Peach Blush. I'm sorry to say that she is incredibly hard to find cheap!

Plum Puddin's first appearance was in "The World of Strawberry Shortcake" in 1980. But in WOSSC, the character was a boy. In SSCBWON and SSCMBK, Plum Puddin' was a girl, and therefore, is confusing the heck outta me!

Mint Tulip, Cafe Ole, Almond Tea, Angel Cake, Apple Dumplin', and Cherry Cuddler all appear in the ending scene. It was the animator's way of showing off Kenner's new Party Pleaser line. Crepe Suzette, who was never made into a Party Pleaser doll, appeared in the scene as well. Lemon Meringue, Blueberry Muffin, and Raspberry Tart were never made into Party Pleaser dolls, but they were seen at the party.

This special also showed the SSC Sweet Sleeper dolls. Only Strawberry, Blueberry, Raspberry, Lemon, and Orange were made into dolls.
