Episode Review

One summer day the Berrykins are working when they soon grow distracted by a flying dandelion. It leads them to Orange's store when she hears them from inside and opens the door, to avoid any incident. They continue to play and soon they go outside, so she follows them out and asks to play. Soon the group becomes sad however, as the dandelion puff vanishes. So to keep playing, Orange asks Raspberry to make them a ball using some feathers and puffs inside. Raspberry doesn't fully understand but she doesn't ask and instead watches the Berrykins play before she too joins them and play a game.

Meanwhile, Strawberry is at Lemon's Salon when they hear noise outside and see Raspberry, Orange, and the berrykins playing and they soon join in, along with Plum and Blueberry.
However, wanting to develop the game more, they try to think of possible goals and pick the Gazebo, and a droopy daisy. The butterflies are made referees and the game goes underway.

Seeing as they have no distance in comparison to the berrykins, Orange brings in her Pogo-stick and begins to make up rules for the game, such as the pogo stick for one team and the birds for another. After bringing in springs for the berrykins, they determine the game more fair now and before they know it the day comes to an end. Everybody had so much fun and Strawberry mentions since it's getting late she's going to head back home, much like everyone else. Orange then picks a name for the game, "Dandyball".

Later, Blueberry is telling the berrykins a story while the girls are once again playing that game. The berrykins get distracted and wish to play, so she comes into Strawberry's Cafe in hopes of getting their minds off of it. However, it doesn't work and the same thing happens with everybody else eventually. Raspberry goes inside with Princess Berrykin and Jadeybug in order to finish their picnic.

Eventually, Plum comes by to ask for Strawberry's aid in clearing out part of the meadow. She then explains its for an upcoming recital and that the Gazebo is always being used for Dandyball, so she felt it'd be best just to pick a new location instead.

Strawberry then holds a meeting, in hopes of trying to find a way to make more room for other events. The girls are at a loss, having trouble finding a way to make everything fair. Then eventually the girls decide they need someone to be in charge of making the schedules. Plum and Raspberry are too busy and they think Lemon would be the best choice. Strawberry asks Orange if this is okay, seeing as she felt she'd want to do it. Orange then agrees to it and claims it's okay though.

And so everybody makes plans soon. Blueberry finished reading a story but there's still a few minutes until they can play and Strawberry notes how weird this is, so she decides she'll visit the others later in hopes of trying to make a somewhat "tighter" schedule. Upon arrival she sees a huge stack of papers.

Lemon is beginning to become very stressed from all of this work and mentions having no time to work on it with all of her salon appointments. And so, Plum suggests instead that they have Blueberry do it, while Orange is trying to volunteer. Blueberry agrees and is handed all of the papers as Strawberry once again asks if she's okay but Orange claims she is fine.

Blueberry then begins to read many books related to the subject, and later then she gives a very detailed lecture about her findings. Unfortunately, everybody is finding this new schedule style very confusing. Blueberry admits it's way more complicated then she thought it'd be also and the next day proves how much more confusing it is for her and everybody is beginning to get frustrated instead. Blueberry then just asks everyone to play Dandyball instead, while she tries to focus better on making a brand new schedule.

Eventually, Blueberry asks someone else to take over and Lemon nominates Raspberry, who then picks Strawberry, who mentions Orange should be the one to go first. The others are unsure if Orange can really do it though, considering her brash nature. But Orange wishes to try anyway and the others head to her store, mentioning that they wish to make her an organizer to make things easier. At first Orange was going to refuse as Strawberry suspiciously begins to ask questions. Then points out what Orange does here is the exact same thing they need done with the schedules.

Later on Orange holds a meeting and begins to explain how she realized it was like how she works in her store, and adds that she also made everyone smaller charts and divided things up into six teams before going into a small math like problem. She also had worked an entire season for the new sport and even a championship. She also shows them how she used Blueberry's confusing symbols from earlier in her brand new schedules as well.

And so with that in mind the girls begin to mention how Dandyball still requires some things, like a rule book, routines, uniforms, and so fourth. With a small laugh, Orange is talking with Jadeybug while on a walk the next day. She asks her to help her organize the post office, while Princess Berrykin asks to make the Berry Works more smooth. Then Blueberry asks for help as well.

However, everyone goes instead to play Dandyball and just enjoying their time out and playing together. Hanging out as music plays and the episode comes to an end just as Orange makes a game winning shot.


Orange: Hi, Berrykins! What's this?


Orange: Well, since I was the one who sort of got the ball rolling...


Orange learns a valuable lesson in not only balancing work and play, but finding a way to make sure it is fair and convenient for everyone.


  • Mr. Longface has a cameo appearance when Blueberry hands out the schedule copies she made.

  • During the moment when Blueberry is reading to the berrykins, she sounds a bit like Strawberry.
