Episode Review

Tiny
Orange Blossom is stocking items while using her brand new Pogo-stick, a present from Berrykin Bloom. He comes in to check for a package just as Jadeybug is coming in with the packages for the day when she slips on the cans, unable to see them. They help her recollect everything and ask Berrykin Bloom what he was so eager to receive. However- it didn't come today. He explains that because he is unable to take a vacation this year -due to spending money on special berry seeds- he had to cancel his plans, He also did it the previous year to look after Orange's sick petunia flowers; and the year before that to help bring in the berry harvest. However, he isn't upset, and he tells Orange she can keep the issue of Berry Bitty World Traveler since he no longer has a use for it.

He takes off as Strawberry walks inside to mention how sad he looked. Orange feels badly for him and begins to browse through the magazine until seeing a special advertisement. Berry Bitty World Traveler is holding a contest in this issue; anyone who can break a world record will win a free vacation. She and Strawberry get the others to join them and she holds a meeting to catch them up on the plan. They begin to brainstorm some ideas in hopes of giving Berrykin Bloom the vacation he deserves, but most of them are concerned that they lack the talent needed to break any sort of record. Because of Orange getting the idea, Strawberry puts her in charge in keeping tabs on everyone while they try to complete their goals- a task she happily accepts.

The next day Strawberry busily works on baking the worlds tallest soufflé. But she is continuously interrupted by both Mr. Longface and Berrykin
Souffle

Bloom. She quickly covers the soufflés and proceeds to offer the two of them her "error soufflés" in return. None the wiser, they accept and sit down to enjoy the snack while discussing the medical book "A History of Contagious Diseases". But while doing this, Berrykin Bloom happens to notice how weirdly Strawberry seems to be acting, but he shrugs it off a moment later.

Meanwhile, Blueberry sends Bosley Bookworm to lunch and allows Orange to use her phone to inform the magazine staff of their plans. They need to get a judge sent there. After being told the Judge can come on Friday, Orange updates Strawberry, who worries that they might not be ready yet. Orange is certain that her can stacking will surely win the vacation though, and after being reminded of her duties, she decides to pay the others a visit.

In the mean time, Strawberry offers to help Blueberry come up with an idea after noticing her struggle. They start by stacking books, but their book stack reaches the ceiling and can't get any bigger, and Blueberry refuses to risk getting the books dirty by taking them outside; so they will need to come up wit something else. As this is going on, Orange heads over to Fresh Fashions Boutique, where she compliments Raspberry's idea to make the world's biggest dress. She reminds her that she only has until Friday before heading off to see Lemon. She finds her struggling as well and tries to encourage her, pointing out that she only has two days left.

Upside Down
Back at Blueberry's, Strawberry watches as Blueberry tries to stand on her head and read.

Orange finds Plum at the dance studio trying to attempt the record of dancing on ones hands. She attempts it along side her and finds it a lot of fun when Berrykin Bloom passes by the girls. He expresses concern when Plum mentions feeling sick after she falls over, and his suspicion continues when he overhears Blueberry trying to break the record for reading backwards, then sees Plum doing cartwheels down the street. He checks on Lemon and is startled by her appearance, only to see Plum now skipping backwards. He then tries to talk with Lemon about his suspicions, but when she comes out of the salon her hair is dyed several colors, much to his shock. He asks her about Plum's weird behavior, but she claims that Plum just likes to exercise before trying to throw him off by offering a Mineral foot soak. He turns it down and goes back to what he was doing.

The girls decide to hold an emergency meeting that night to discuss their current status when they notice Berrykin Bloom checking on the night blooming plants. By now most of the girls are beginning to lose faith when Strawberry points out that the one in charge has to have a can-do spirit, so Orange tells them to try to keep thinking and reminds them of why they wanted to do this to begin with. They have to give it their all until the final second. With that, the girls have a flashlight fight just as Berrykin Bloom goes by; further worried about them.

It's then Strawberry comes up with an idea based on Orange's can stacking and decides to stack fruits. Then, instead of telling everyone to come up with their own ideas she suggests they combine them. Lemon decides to make the highest hairdo, Raspberry will sew the most stitches on a dress, Blueberry will make herself read the fastest, and Plum will attempt to do the most Pirouettes in a row.

Soon Friday arrives and Berrykin Bloom recalls everything strange he saw with Mr. LongFace, suggesting they call a doctor to check on them.

As this is going on, Orange uses her Pogo-stick to check on everyone before the judge arrives. But she only manages to check on Lemon and Raspberry before spotting a squirrel she assumes to be the judge. But as it turns out, it's actually the doctor. Mr. Longface had called her to come and check up on the girls. Before they know it things only go downhill from there. Lemon's hair loses its puff and she begins to panic, Plum is way too dizzy to continue her pirouettes, and Raspberry is told that someone broke the record she was attempting since the book was last updated.

After Strawberry's stack of strawberries falls down the truth is revealed when Doctor Hazel tries to take her temperature. When questioned on their strange behavior, the girls confess to trying to break a world record to win a vacation
Doctor and Cans
for Berrykin Bloom. Strawberry explains that it was Orange who set it up, and she inspired them to do better than their best, even if they didn't win. But to their surprise, Bosley comes over to reveal a record was broken by one of them. As it turns out he's the Judge they were waiting for. He kept track of Orange's Pogo Stick bounces and she beat the old record by ten bounces. Berrykin Bloom is delighted to learn that the girls aren't sick- and he got his dream vacation after all. They show Doctor Hazel the medical book he was using that made them so worried to begin with, she points out that is a book of fake diseases; it's a gag gift that doctors like to give each other.

As a reward for trying so hard and getting the prize, Strawberry invites everyone over to celebrate with the remaining soufflés.

Lessons

Trivia

  • The girls attempted 18 different records.
  • Mr. Longface's voice is deeper in this episode.
  • Before Mr. Longface comes in, Strawberry made 13 soufflés.
  • Bosley Bookworm is introduced in this episode.
  • This is the only appearance of Doctor Hazel Nutby in the show.

Goofs

  • In reality, Record Books are updated yearly so it seems unlikely the book was out of date.
    • Although it is possible they had an old copy of the book.
  • It is normally against the rules for a Judge to be associated with someone attempting to break a record or partake in events due to the possibility of bias voting. So Bosley working for Blueberry would normally forbid her from trying.
