Strawberry Shortcake Meets the Berrykins is a 1985 animated television special from Canada's Nelvana Limited, and the last one until DiC's recent revival to feature the American Greetings character, Strawberry Shortcake (2003–2009).
In 1985, the special gained popularity in the United Kingdom when it was used as a theatrical featurette alongside The Care Bears Movie, introducing the Strawberry Shortcake franchise to a British public largely hitherto unaware of it
Strawberry rids Strawberryland of a strange, horrible smelling purple cloud with the help of her new friends, the Berry Princess and her helpers, the Berrykins.
"Strawberry Shortcake Meets The Berrykins" featured the first (and only) animated appearance of new friend Banana Twirl, and the Berry Princess, mystical guardian of the sprite-like Berrykins. Strawberry's friends Blueberry Muffin, Raspberry Tart, Lemon Meringue and Lime Chiffon were all featured in this special, but were not merchandised as part of 1985's "Berrykins" line of dolls by Kenner. Furthermore, Mint Tulip, who was produced as a "Berrykins" doll, did not appear in this special.
This special was released on VHS on March 13, 1992 by Family Home Entertainment.
