Strawberry Shortcake and Other Childhood Cartoons

Strawberry Shortcake was a favorite childhood cartoon from the 80s

Strawberry Shortcake, Rainbow Brite, Care Bears,  Snorks, She Ra : these are the childhood cartoons that I remember. There was usually some sort of danger or problem that the characters had to overcome each episode and I watched in anticipation to see how they would solve it.

Thanks to networks like The Hub and Cartoon Network, some of these shows are around for our children to watch today. Though, of course, many can be found on dvd, too.

Recently, Strawberry Shortcake  turned thirty. How has she changed?

She is more stylish, of course. We can’t have her sporting the same clothes and hairstyle as she did in the 80s. No one should do that, not even a cartoon character. She has to appeal to today’s kids. I would say “today’s girls” but my little boys love to watch her, too.

I seem to remember that a lot of Strawberry Shortcake and friends’ trouble back then revolved around the Purple Pie Man making life difficult for the kids. Today, the show is more about the values of friendship and teamwork.

Do you have a favorite childhood cartoon? Have you shared that with your children?
