"GREAT GALLOPING GOOSEBERRIES!!!"
Cafe owner, Chef
Strawberry Shortcake is the main protagonist of Berry Bitty Adventures.
Strawberry is a hard worker that runs the Berry Bitty Cafe and gets a lot of things around the city done. She is depended on by others for her wise, open-minded views about everything and can befriend just about everyone.
Strawberry Shortcake is a young girl with fair skin and bright green eyes with a row of freckles. Her hair varies between magenta and red and reaches her waist with multiple curls and worn with a pink strawberry hat with green leaf flap. Beneath her hat she wears a green and white striped bow with a strawberry in the middle. Her lips are light pink.
Her common outfit consists of a pale pink-white blouse with a strawberry surrounded by two green diamonds with lines through them. The skirt portion is pink with magenta dot print, worn with green and white striped tights and Maryjane shoes usually a shade of pink or red.
During Season 3 and 4, Strawberry would be shown pulling her hair into a low ponytail usually worn over one of her shoulders, held with a green scrunchie. With it she wore a pale pink and white striped tank-top with dull green short-shorts and pink flats.
Strawberry Shortcake is a young, sweet, and spirited girl with a lot of creativity and a positive outlook on life. With this she is able to befriend anyone with ease, along with her passive nature. She always puts the needs of others before her own and while she does not want to hurt feelings, she has no problem being honest with others either. She also tries to lend a supportive hand whenever someone needs help or may need the courage to tell the truth to others. She is seen as a leader among her friends and is always eager to help out.
Compared to the other girls, Strawberry has a very high tolerance when it comes to rude people and problems in general. It takes a lot of stress before finally reaching her cracking point. When distressed, she becomes discouraged and the solution becomes difficult to see immediately. An example of this was when her beloved pets, Pupcake and Custard went missing.
Usually very level-headed and with a calm, cool attitude, Strawberry likes to see the glass as half-full and look on the bright side. She tries her hardest to never let problems get the best of her and does as much as she can to solve them before they spiral out of control. Though she may not be as brainy as Blueberry, her open-mindedness makes her very modest and humble. She prefers to plan things out rather than rush headfirst into situations. Rather than being proven right, Strawberry's only wish is for everybody to be safe and happy, even if it means sacrificing her own happiness in the process and possibly even causing more problems for herself, until everyone confronts the problem head on.
Strawberry has a golden rule for every event, game, competition and project: the most important thing is to have fun. If things become too stressful or inconvenient, she would speak with the one in charge, gently point out the problem and suggest to change the attitude.
In the series pilot Strawberry was a published recipe author and acts the same as she does in the series. In the Movie she was hopeful and courageous; until stress took a toll on her - in which she suffered a breakdown and loss of faith in herself and her decisions. This however, only lasted until the others reminded her that she isn't the type of person to lose hope.
