History

The original design of Strawberry Shortcake and her cat Custard was done in 1977 by Muriel Fahrion during her time as a greeting card illustrator at American Greetings' Juvenile & Humorous card department. After the idea was presented to Bernie Loomis of General Mills and became a licensing entity, Fahrion designed a subsequent thirty-two characters for Those Characters From Cleveland (American Greetings' toy & licensing design division). Binomial name Felis catus Linnaeus, 1758 Synonyms Felis lybica invalid junior synonym The cat (or domestic cat, house cat) is a small carnivorous mammal. ...

General Mills (NYSE: GIS) is a Fortune 500 corporation, mainly concerned with food products, which is headquartered in Golden Valley, Minnesota, a suburb of Minneapolis. ...


Cindy Moyer Patton and Janet Jones designed the other later characters of the classic Strawberry Shortcake line. Lyn Edwards was the editor of the line and along with brainstorm group developed the personality profiles and the story line and philosophy. The first doll was a rag doll directed by Muriel Fahrion and created by Susan Trentel, Fahrion's sister.


The Strawberry Shortcake line of characters each had their own fruity or dessert-themed name with clothing to match, and they each had a dessert- or fruit-named pet. Like the Strawberry Shortcake doll, all the other characters' dolls had hair scented to match their dessert theme. The characters lived and played in a magical world known as Strawberryland.


During the 1980s, Strawberry Shortcake became a huge fad. At the time, there were several related products, such as sticker albums, clothes, a video game by Parker Bros. entitled Strawberry Shortcake Musical Match-Ups for the Atari 2600 [2], and several other products. Several TV specials were made featuring the characters, one each year between 1980 and 1985, when the fad had apparently waned. Kenner produced no new dolls or toys thereafter.

In 2002, the franchise was revived again, this time with a revamped look by a different designer. Many strong licensing deals were made. A television series with new DVD and VHS (and in certain markets [particularly in Asia], Video CD) releases was made, with soundtracks for the episodes being put out on CDs at certain intervals. DiC Entertainment was granted rights in producing the TV series, who sub-licensed the production of videos, DVDs and Video CDs of the series to 20th Century Fox Home Videos (who subsequently licenses the production of the video outside the US to various other licensees). Bandai (along with KellyToy) was granted the rights to manufacturing the dolls and toys. For the first time in almost two decades, new videogames were launched, produced by The Game Factory for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS. Educational CD-ROMs for the PC were also produced. A full-length feature film , Strawberry Shortcake: The Sweet Dreams Movie, premiered in 2006 and released to videos in February 2007. The current revival is still running strong, with the latest activity being the release of the Let's Dance DVD and the upcoming Big Country Fun DVD set for release in 2008.

In 2006, Playmates Toys picked up the rights to make Strawberry Shortcake figures. The line is named "A World Of Friends". The doll Frosty Puff was new to this line, but, although a good deal of shuffling and re-distribution was made concerning the pets of the re-launched characters, very few of the new dolls were actually merchandised with pets. The line was received with mixed reactions (see Criticisms section below) from the series' fans.

Friends

Main article: List of Strawberry Shortcake characters

There is a bit of "wiggle room" in a few cases, between the introduction of a character, and their release as a toy. For instance, Raspberry Tart (the character) was introduced in 1980, with the first Strawberry Shortcake TV Special, alongside Huckleberry Pie, Apple Dumplin', etc., but wasn't released as a Doll until the next year. The same is true of Strawberry Shortcake's nemesis, The Peculiar Purple Pie Man. Plum Puddin' also debuted in 1980, but would not get a doll until 1984, by which time the character had apparently switched genders, and was now a girl! Moreover, with the exception of Apple Dumplin', Apricot, and The Purple Pie Man, none of the other characters would come packaged with pets (nor indeed, would most of them even be known to HAVE pets) until the 1982 releases, when all the earlier-released characters were re-issued with their animal friends. A couple of the characters listed below weren't produced as dolls at all, namely T.N. Honey, Raisin Cane, and Baby Needs-A-Name, who was only made as a larger-sized "Blow-Kiss" baby doll. Raisin Cane was introduced as the niece of villainess Sour Grapes in Issue #1 of Star Comics' (an imprint of Marvel Comics) short-lived Strawberry Shortcake Comic Book, and, as far as is known, was never considered for any kind of commercial merchandising.

A little revamping took place at the characters' relaunch. Both Pupcake and Custard now belong to Strawberry Shortcake. In Pupcake's place, a new pet, Shoofly Frog, was introduced as Huckleberry Pie's pet, and Apple Dumplin' was relaunched as Strawberry Shortcake's sister.

Strawberryland Fillies

Main article: List of Strawberry Shortcake fillies

The 2003 revival of the franchise introduced fillies to the franchise. Each of the fillies are tied down to a character, with the main filly, Honey Pie Pony, being the only one able to talk and have a pet. However, when Playmates took over the dolls rights from Ban-Dai, they decided to scrape the existing fillies and introduce new ones. Due to the popularity of the Honey Pie character on the show, however, American Greetings has opted to still let Honey Pie appear on several non-Playmates-related media like books, on the website and on the TV series, although her screen time on the TV series has been reduced due to relegation into a background character.


Animation

1980s television specials

Main article: Strawberry Shortcake (80s Annual Specials)

From 1980 through 1985, annual specials featuring Strawberry Shortcake were produced. Like many animated shows produced in the 80s, they were produced primarily to sell toys.


The 1980 and 1982 specials were animated by Murakami-Wolf-Swenson and Toei Doga, while the 1983 special through the final special 1985 were animated by Nelvana. The 1981 special was a unique case, animated by Perpetual Motion Pictures of New York.


2000s series

Main article: Strawberry Shortcake (2000s Series)

In 2003, the Strawberry Shortcake franchise was revived, and with it, a Strawberry Shortcake TV series was finally produced, 19 years after the last special. The series reflected the changes in the direction of the franchise, and has the primary focus on being an educational program.


The series is produced by DiC Entertainment and 20th Century Fox.


Theatrically-released feature film

Main article: Strawberry Shortcake: The Sweet Dreams Movie

In October 2006, the first Strawberry Shortcake film, The Sweet Dreams Movie, was released in select cities by Kidtoon Films. The Peculiar Purple Pie-Man of Porcupine Peak and Sour Grapes, which were notably absent from the TV series, are re-introduced in the movie. However, Sour Grapes is re-introduced as Purple Pieman's sister in materials related to the Sweet Dreams Movie. The movie was released on DVD on February 6, 2007.


Disney Channel Asia has screened the movie as part of it's Wonderful World of Disney movie-time line-up in March 2007, and has since re-screened it several times. It was finally released on Video CD (as a two-disc set due to the limited storage capacity of a CD being insufficient to hold the entire movie) in the region in December 2007, more than a year after the movie's theatrical debut in the US and 10 months after it was released to DVD in the US.

Soundtracks

Main article: List of Strawberry Shortcake CDs

To date, 6 CDs have been released by Koch records since the franchise's revival in 2003. These CDs are soundtrack CDs containing music from the TV series and DVDs, as well as one for the movie. Additionally, a CD was released along with a piano book. It features 10 tracks, 5 full tracks coupled with 5 minus-one tracks.


Video Games

Main article: List of Strawberry Shortcake video games

The first Strawberry Shortcake videogame was produced in 1983. It was designed for children, and thus the software was kept as simple as possible, with very simple graphics and sounds (the abilities of the Atari 2600 console was very limited). Needless to say, no newer games on the franchise was produced again until 20 years later, in 2003, with Strawberry Shortcake: Amazing Cookie Party, for the PC. Since then, games have been published for the Nintendo DS and Game Boy Advance, Sony Playstation 2, PCs and Apple Macintoshes, and even a standalone game console based on Konami's Dance Dance Revolution franchise.


Criticisms

Image File history File links Question_book-3. ...

General Inconsistencies

A criticism from long-time fans is the inconsistency and retconning of characters, pets, scents, etc. that exists between the vintage franchise from the 1980s and the current franchise. Some examples are: This article or section does not cite its references or sources. ...


Character names - Raspberry Tart's name was changed to Raspberry Torte. Almond Tea's name was changed to Tea Blossom. Banana Twirl's name was changed to Banana Candy.


Pets - Pupcake now belongs to Strawberry instead of Huck[1] (who now has Shoofly Frog[2]). Angel Cake no longer has Souffle skunk, but instead a lamb named Vanilla Icing[2]. Lemon Meringue's pet frog, Frappe, is replaced by Sourball the skunk (possibly explained by the switching of Souffle skunk to Vanilla Icing for Angel Cake and switching of Pupcake to Shoofly Frog for Huck). Apple Dumplin's turtle, Teatime, is replaced by Apple Ducklin'[2]. And maybe oddest of all is Rhubarb's (Raspberry's pet) change from a monkey to a raccoon. This might be explained by the existence of Banana Bongo (Tangerina Torta's monkey), although Banana Bongo himself was originally introduced as the leader of a monkey band on Seaberry Beach during the story introducing Coco Calypso and Seaberry Delight [3].


Relationships - Previously unmentioned sibling pairs keep popping up, such as Strawberry Shortcake and Apple Dumplin'[1] and The Purple Pie Man and Sour Grapes[4]. There is also some confusion about the relationship between Crepes Suzette and the younger, recently-introduced Cherry Cuddler. Both have cherry scents and early promotional materials indicated that they are sisters. However, the box for the Playmates doll set indicates they are merely friends.


Scents - Playmates' introduction of the 2006 toy line is very loose with the linked scents that have been traditional in this franchise. Examples include cherry used for Crepes Suzette, Grape used for Tea Blossom, etc. While some consider the scent mixing and blending to be part of the fun, it is also criticized for taking some of the unique and distinct personalities and associations away from each individual character.


Fillies/Ponies - In early 2007, Playmates introduced three new ponies, but these are different from the previous Strawberryland Fillies. The ponies belong to Strawberry Shortcake, Angel Cake, and Crepes Suzette, and are aligned with the Berries to Blossoms doll line. The Honey Pie Pony and Milkshake names are not used and neither pony looks like the fillies previously linked to Strawberry and Angel. The new ponies are not given names of their own. In June 2007, three new ponies were introduced - two are new remakes of Strawberry's and Crepes' ponies (even more inconsistencies) and the third is Apricot's. Still no individual names for these ponies, but the series is called Sugar Sweet ponies.


Character designs - Many feel that the Playmates line of dolls does not look anything like the characters on TV or the other materials at all. The Playmates dolls are all looking increasingly alike (same expressions, hairstyles, outfits) with just differing colors. Also, changes to hair colors in the dolls for Blueberry Muffin, Lemon Meringue, Angel Cake, Seaberry Delight, and even Strawberry Shortcake herself make the dolls look even less like their contemporary TV/Book/movie versions. Likewise, some eBay-savvy fans recently found a line of Baby Strawberry Shortcake dolls from South America that not only look nothing like the other Baby Strawberry Shortcake materials or the episode "Baby Takes the Cake", but even remind some fans of Psygnosis' Lemmings games[5] The logo that introduced most Psygnosis games was designed by fantasy artist Roger Dean. ... Lemmings is a puzzle computer game, developed by DMA Design (now Rockstar North) and published by Psygnosis in 1991, originally for the Commodore Amiga. ...


The TV show and the movie

AS the 2000 series is a complete reboot and redesign of the Strawberry Shortcake universe, it brings upon criticisms of those old enough to remember the original 1980s annual specials regarding various aspects of the new series. On the other hand, its real-life adventures format also brought in a new string of fans, many of them fans of other real life adventures educational programming driven to the series due to the new format of the show.


Some people were disappointed with the absence of The Purple Pie Man in the TV series. However, others applauded the removal of villains from the series and was disappointed with the reintroduction of the Pie Man in the Sweet Dreams Movie, preferring that the series being kept in its current format: an educational, real-life adventure program similar to Arthur or Caillou. Two camps clearly exist on this issue: There are fans (adults and children alike) that love the inclusion of antagonists such as Purple Pie Man, Sour Grapes and Licorice Whip. These fans want to continue to see more of them in movies, books, and toys. However, there are others who feel that the inclusion (or re-inclusion) of villains in the show take away from the primary focus on Strawberry and her friends as well as erode the educational content of the show, and would prefer the show and franchise be kept villain-free[6] [7]. Arthur is an American and Canadian educational television series for children, which airs primarily on PBS in the United States; Radio-Canada, Knowledge Network and TVO in Canada; and BBC One in the UK, among other stations and networks. ... Caillou is a childrens television show based on the books by Christine LHeureux and illustrator Hélène Desputeaux. ...


There is a continuity error between Meet Strawberry Shortcake and Here Comes Pupcake, with the former indicating that Strawberry Shortcake had not meet the other residents of Strawberryland when she already had Pupcake for a while, while the latter indicates that she has known the other residents of Strawberryland even before she got Pupcake.[8]


Another continuity error exists in regards to Blueberry Muffin and Rainbow Sherbet. Initially both characters were already present in Mystery of Seaberry Beach and Legend of the Lost Treasure prior to the stories that "introduced" them, The Blueberry Beast (Blueberry Muffin) and The Costume Party (Rainbow Sherbet)[9]. Certain networks have attempted to fix these inconsistencies by reordering the episodes so that Mystery of Seaberry Beach and Legend of the Lost Treasure would air after The Costume Party. However, it is unknown how many networks worldwide re-ordered their episode schedules in an attempt to fix these inconsistencies. Nonetheless, these inconsistencies have led to confusion among some viewers.


Also, the versions of the first four episodes broadcast on North American TV were edited down to 22-minutes in length. This resulted in the removal of certain subplots and songs from the broadcast edition of these episodes. This edited version was also used in the Game Boy Advance Video release of the episodes. However, the DVD and VHS releases contain the original 44-minute versions of the episodes. In other markets, these first four episodes were aired as two-parters, adding an extra four episodes to the episode count. [10]


Some episodes were also released under different names in different regions, sparking even more inconsistencies in fan clubs where there could be people from all over the world. For example, "A Trip to Pearis, France" was released under the title "The Friendship Club" on Disney Channel Asia and on Video CDs and DVDs released in Asia. This was repeated for "The Great Friendship Festival", "Dancing in Disguise", and "Meet Apricot", which was released as "A Festival of Friends", "Everybody Dance" and "Let's Dance" respectively in the Asian region.[11]


2003 episodes Season 2 criticisms

With the transition to the new design for season 2 of the show beginning in 2008 with Big Country Fun, new criticisms arose about various aspects and changes made upon transition from 2003 Season 1 to 2003 Season 2.


American Greetings' design team changed Blueberry Muffin's hair color from blue to brown for the 2000s series, but reinstated her blue hair in phases beginning in 2006 (starting with the Playmates dolls, followed by books, and finally on to various media in 2008). This was followed by rumors that the 2003 Season 2 episodes will be the next to see this change. This brought on criticism from those who're used to Blueberry Muffin's brown hair, who voiced their dislikes to the idea of American Greetings changing it back to blue on the grounds that it makes her look unnatural. The change also sparked concerns among another different group of fans, but on the grounds that it makes her look too much like another character on the series, Frosty Puff, instead. Ultimately, it turned out that American Greetings has no intention to force DiC to change Blueberry Muffin's hair back to blue for the TV show. However, there are still fans that are worried that it might happen in the future.


Also, beginning with It Takes Talent and Playing to Beat the Band (which have already been seen in Asia), the characters now have an "all new look" which is more consistent with the current official artwork and toyline. Due to the style of the design, this new look has given some fans the impression that the characters are now "teenagers". The impression is further reinforced in the Big Country Fun DVD, as Strawberry is seen seeking a part time job at a dude ranch, and is later seen driving a car in the episodes on the Berry Big Journeys DVD (of which the first story of the DVD, Strawberry's Big Journeys, was already aired by Disney Channel Asia). This resulted in a group of fans voicing their dislike of the idea of aging the characters.


The continuity of "Everybody Dance aka Dancin' In Disguise" in "Let's Dance" was discarded in Big Country Fun as Sour Grapes will be reverted back into a villain[12]. This news did not go well with a group of fans of the show who feel that Sour Grapes and other reformed villains should have been kept reformed.


Finally, there recently arose reports (as of February 2008) that Honey Pie and the other fillies have been scrapped and will no longer be featured in the second season of the 2000s TV series[13], probably a move to synchronize the show with the Playmates dolls (which does not associate Honey Pie or any of the current fillies to the dolls or franchise, but instead a new generic, nameless set of fillies). This resulted in concerns and disapproval of the idea by fans, as many fans feel that Honey Pie is an integral part of the series and should not have been removed. Ultimately, it turned out that DiC has no intentions to immediately remove the character, but instead faded the character into background[14]. However, while many fans are relieved to find that Honey Pie has not been removed, some are still concerned that the character will face removal in the future, or dislike the fact that the character will be getting less screen time.


Controversy

American McGee's Strawberry Shortcake

In 2003, webcomic Penny Arcade posted an "advertisement" for an imaginary computer game, American McGee's Strawberry Shortcake, in reference to American McGee's Alice - a twisted and violent take on Lewis Carroll's works. American Greetings took offense to the parody and issued a cease-and-desist letter, to which the authors begrudgingly complied [15] - but not without making their indignation very clear [16]. Year 2003 (MMIII) was a common year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar. ... Penny Arcade is a webcomic and blog written by Jerry Holkins and illustrated by Mike Krahulik. ...

It is used in demands for a person or organization to permanently stop doing something (to cease and desist from doing it). ...


Some argue that Penny Arcade's case was not covered under the fair use doctrine because the use of the characters in this case was for satire [17]; they claim that fair use only protects the unauthorized use of copyrighted characters in parodies of the original material, and that satire and parody are totally different concepts. Others, however, take the view that parody and satire are equally protected by law [18].

Ironically, Penny Arcade did not intend to offend American Greetings in the comic, but instead intended to mock American McGee and Mcfarlane Toys, who collaborated to create a toy line based on a twisted version of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. The poster also mocked American McGee's game, American McGee's Alice, a game with a dark and twisted take of Alice In Wonderland and purportedly an unofficial sequel to Lewis Carroll's books.
