GENERAL THOUGHTS

This was the third Strawberry Shortcake cartoon made.

I don't know who did the animation, but I felt this special had the best animation of all the SSC cartoons.

This is the last Mueller/Rosen production of SSC.

The only characters to have big speaking roles are Strawberry, the Purple Pieman, Sour Grapes, Angel Cake, Custard, and Souffle Skunk. This is the only time any of the pets ever speak.

The one thing I didn't like about this special was when the Pieman and Sour Grapes framed Strawberry for cheating. Why on earth did the rest of the kids listen to him?

My sister and I have a little joke we do whenever we think about the Pieman's quote, "Berries to the right of me. Yodels to the left." When one of us quotes it, we just start singing "Stuck in the middle with you!"

QUOTES

CUSTARD: What's your name?
SOUFFLE: Can't say exactly, but I think it's Yowie Ay.
CUSTARD: Yowie Ay?
SOUFFLE: That's what everybody says when they see me. Yowie! A skunk!

STRAWBERRY: Then how come you're eating candy?
ANGEL CAKE: I always say, if you don't think about it, the calories don't count.

PIEMAN & SOUR GRAPES: The Peculiar Purple Partners of Porcupine Peak! Yah-tah-tah-tah-tah-tah-tah-tah, yah-tah-tah-tah-tah! Cha!

ANGEL CAKE: Strawberry Shortcake cheat? I don't believe it, thank you.
PIEMAN: You're welcome!

PIEMAN: I'm such a physical coward. I hope you don't mean fisticuffs!
STRAWBERRY: Worst than fisticuffs!
PIEMAN: What could be worse?
STRAWBERRY: Berry Talk!

STRAWBERRY: If you don't admit you framed me, I'll haunt you with Berry Talk!

PIEMAN: Berries to the right of me! Yodels to the left! LET ME OUT OF HERE!!!!

STRAWBERRY: I bet the Purple Pieman will never forget the Super Berry Shortcake of Strawberry Peak! Yah-tah-tah-tah-tah-tah-tah-tah, yah-tah-tah-tah! Cha!
