The character Strawberry Shortcake was a creation of the American Greetings division known as Those Characters from Cleveland, originally used in greeting cards and expanded to include dolls, posters, and other products.It became a huge fad for children throughout the United States. At the time, there were many related products, such as sticker albums, clothes, and even a video game by Parker Bros named Strawberry Shortcake Musical Match-Ups for the Atari 2600, and numerous other products.

Several TV specials were made featuring the characters, Every spring for five years, a Strawberry Shortcake special was aired, one each year between 1980 and 1985, when the fad had declined.

Each doll had its own scent and an animal sidekick. Every spring for five years, a Strawberry Shortcake special was aired. SS, with her friends Blueberry Muffin, Huckleberry Pie, etc., had to deal with a villain known as the Peculiar Purple Pieman of Porcupine Peak and his minions, the Sour Grapes. The specials are entitled The World of Strawberry Shortcake, Strawberry Shortcake in Big Apple City, Strawberry Shortcake: Pets on Parade, Strawberry Shortcake's Housewarming Surprise and Strawberry Shortcake Meets the Berrykins. The concept was irresistibly adorable, and the specials were a huge hit with little kids.
