I loved the 80's Strawberry Shortcake. I love their costumes so much more than the ones today, and I think Russi Taylor IS Strawberry Shortcake! What a cute voice.
When my daughter was born, I collected many vintage dolls and toys for her from that Kenner collection of the 80's (including dolls from Brazil; my favorite being Little Coffee) and she strongly prefers the vintage stuff to the new stuff. Her number one favorite is Plum Puddin' (as a girl). The new stuff is okay, but like My Little Pony, its very different in its modern incarnation. The original cartoons had two adversaries; the Peculair Purple Pieman of Porcupine Peak and Sour Grapes. The new stuff didn't feature these fabulous villians at first, but added them later in a sort of role reversal with Sour Grapes being timid and softer and PPPM being hard and evil. I still like the old versions of them better.

Personally, we are waiting for the Berrykins episode and the House Warming episodes of the the 80's series to be released on DVD. I wish they'd just package them as one collection. At any rate, I had a bad bootleg copy on VHS tape and it was so poor, some of it was just "snow" on the screen. I'm so glad they finally are putting these out. If you love SSC or have a young child, these episodes are worth adding to the collection. In the end, they're all about being good and helping others.

I couldnt believe it when this dvd came out!! I was a 1980's Strawberry Shortcake fan when I was a kid. I bought the dvd for me, really to reminisce but to my surprise, as the animation is obviously dated, my 2 year old daughter loves it!! It is just cute, very basic but I think little girls will enjoy it. My daughter isnt one to sit through a show longer than 30 mins (if im lucky!!) but she will watch this from beginning to end!!

I was so excited to see this classic on DVD. I totally remember these episodes from my kindergarten days. Oddly enough I got The World of Strawberry Shortcake on audio cassette tape for Easter when it first came out, and my friend had the one in Big Apple City on audio cassette. It is funny they released the audios of the movies...kind of hard to follow if you can't see what is going on. In 3rd grade I was still hog-wild about SSC and I was elated when my school (which was a private school) showed the movie version of The World of SSC. It was neat to see what was going on due to sound effects and see that the Pieman not only had a funny chant but a funny dance and that that funny whizzing noise I heard on the cassette was a lady bug, and that crash bang boom was Shortcake's army of marching trees tearing down the Pieman's Pietin Palace, which was made of pots and pans, for example--it made so much more sense to see what was going on. It is funny that they released it on audio in the first place but I must say I played my cassette almost to death and drove my family almost nuts playing it over and over in the car on our long trips! Ah, the memories. What I don't think I will EVER understand is WHY, oh WHY, didn't Strawberry ever get her own syndicated TV show?!? She certainly was popular enough. She was just used as a TV special or to fill-in for extra time, etc. The Care Bears got their's, so did Glo Friends, My Little Ponies, Rainbow Brite...even Lady Lovelilocks and the Pixie Tails, and they NEVER caught on like the other characters!
I originally would give this 5 stars but I have to give it 1, sorry to say, due to the fact that they did a hatchet job on the DVD version.

The is the real authentic original Strawberry Shortcake (SS) cartoon that was made in the 1980's. The Strawberry Shortcake 2000 year cartoons where she is wearing a straw hat and jeans is a joke...they should not even be allowed to call it Strawberry Shortcake- what an insult. It is a whole nother cartoon and characters it should be called something else and not associtated with such a classic as the true 80's Strawberry Shortcake classic cartoon. Growing up on SS I am thrilled the real deal on finally on dvd for the new generation to enjoy and appriciate. I hate those fake foney SS re-make new adventure millinium garbage. Buy the classic ones! All you 80's babies and Parnets of 80's babies know what I'm talking about.

These movies are GREAT!!! As a young girl I watched these same movies as tv specials, and then later on vhs. These stories are sweet, wholesome, and timeless. I am thrilled that now I can share these same movies with my little ones.

My almost 3-year old likes Strawberry Shortcake and when she wanted us to buy her some movies she asked for Strawberry Shortcake. While looking through the choices my wife suggested to get this one. I thought because it was the original she would not like it because of the graphics back then, not as crisp, the language is not as toned down as today - I find that most of the cartoons growing up had language more for an adult to understand. So we bought 2 videos this one and another of the new version.

She absolutely adores this version and prefers to watch it over the newer ones. She likes to sing along with the characters in their entertaining songs, and she likes to point out that Pie Man is a bad man.

I have to admit that even I find this version more enjoyable. The graphics are old, the soundtrack is old, but the fun is fresh each and every time we watch it.
