Oh no she di'int! Uh uh. I know you ain't messin' with my Strawberry Shortcake. What is the world coming to? American Greetings Properties have reimaged our beloved circa 1980's version of Strawberry Shortcake into what they call a "fruit-forward makeover" to create a new version for 2008 (on the right). Oh har har. You think you're funny. This is not funny. Why are they messing with an icon from our childhood? A perfectly adorable one at that that can span the decades in my opinion. Why does homegirl now have to be so much thinner (who "now prefers fresh fruit to gumdrops". Gag me.), clothed in a spiffy, cuter outfit including perfectly matching shoes, and got her hair all done up with a straightener? Sheesh. She looks like she just walked out of a Limited Too commercial. You think kids these days couldn't use a little old fashion pudge and ringlets... oh because they can. It would be good for them to see reality (they already see Limited Too commercials!). And better for my heart because this hurts. Supposedly they are also re-vamping the Care Bears (gasp!) but if they even come close to touching my My Little Ponies, Gummi Bears or Rainbow Bright... watch smoke come out of my head because I will FLIP. A. LID! We'll have a lawsuit on our hands!
