  • This Strawberry Shortcake is classic.

    I like it. When I was little, I like it. In Big Apple City, Strawberry and Orange are talking.

    In this movie, the Purple Pie Man is stealing all over Strawberryland. He is mean.

    Maybe I should call him MeanPurplePieMan. He is always mean.

    Sour grapes was not in the movie. Strawberry saved her cat Custard.
