Strawberry Shortcake [ edit ]
Oh, sometimes I wish I had an alarm clock that didn't oversleep.
[to Custard] My, what a face! That's no way to start the day. You'll never understand: If you want a sunny morning, you must give the sun a hand! How you ask? It's very simple: Show some grit, show a dimple, turn that frown upside down.
[during the last musical number] And what do I see/When I turn on TV?/My favorite cartoon ! Tom and Berry
Mr. Sun [ edit ]
Boys and girls, moms and dads, brothers and sisters, cats and dogs ... welcome to the world of Strawberry Shortcake!
Hey down there! It's high noon now. Whoo! That is high as I climb. And noon means lunch. EATING TIME!
Peculiar Purple Pieman [ edit ]
Away, berry birds. Steal me berries. I need berries for my pies—berries! Ho-hoh, berries!
I'm a little old peddler, quiet and meek. But under it all, I am still, so to speak, the Peculiar Purple Pieman of Porcupine Peak!
[After toddler Apple Dumplin' gives him a note] Hmm. "I hereby surrender, and promise to be a good guy from now on." You surrender? You want me to sign that? Never!
Plum Pudding: I think I know just what to do: I'll calculate, conjugate, equate and equalize/And come to the conclusion that the party'll be a surprise!
Escargot: Ooh-la-la, cherie. I forgot— mon dieu! I, too, have another rendezvous.
Dialogue [ edit ]
Mr. Sun: Just look at that Huckleberry Pie. Loafing again! Today's too important for such goings-on. Have you forgotten? It's Strawberry Shortcake's birthday!
Huckleberry Pie: I didn't forget.
Mr. Sun: Did you get her a present? Did you plan a party?
Huckleberry Pie: I'm getting around to it.
Mr. Sun: Well, get a move on! Huckleberry Pie: O.K., O.K. Come on, Pupcake. We gotta see Blueberry Muffin.
Raspberry Tart: A party for Shortcake? How old is she? '
Plum Pudding: Six.
Raspberry Tart: I think she's seven if she's a day. Huckleberry Pie: Tardy. When will you learn not to say what you think ... till you think about it a little more?
[After Strawberry Shortcake receives the Pieman's magic watering can as a birthday present]
Raspberry Tart: Aren't you a little old for those things, dearie?
Strawberry Shortcake: [whispering] But it's magic. Look! It's empty. But when I tip it...
[While she is using the can]
Huckleberry Pie: How do you stop it, Shortcake?
Strawberry Shortcake: Just tip the can back up, I suppose.
[The can refuses to cease watering]
Strawberry Shortcake: Uh-oh! Didn't work.
Huckleberry Pie: Maybe it takes a magic command. Water, stop!
Plum Pudding: The way to stop it scientifically ... is to cap the spout.
[Strawberry and her friends cheer after Plum Pudding does just that. All too soon, however, the can explodes.]
Strawberry and friends: Oh, no!
[Huckleberry Pie covers the top with a strawberry, but that too fails. Suddenly, the whole of Strawberryland is flooded; the group rides the waters on a small raft.]
Strawberry Shortcake: Oh. See what's happened to our pretty valley.
Peculiar Purple Pieman: Oh, what's the matter, kiddies? [taking off his peddler disguise] Did your can spring a leak? [snickers]
[One of Strawberry's friends gasps]
Strawberry and friends: The Peculiar Purple Pieman of Porcupine Peak!
Peculiar Purple Pieman: Ya-ya-dah-da-da-da-ta-ta, ta-ta-ta-ta-ta. Tah!
Strawberry Shortcake: He tricked us!
Huckleberry Pie: What do you want from us, anyway?
Peculiar Purple Pieman: Berries...berries. Understand? Every last berry in Strawberryland! [cackles] Strawberry Shortcake: [crying] Oh, our pretty berries!
Mr. Sun: When the waters receded, they fell with a thud, and found their proud homeland was only as ... Strawberry and friends: Mud!
