Awesome / Strawberry Shortcake
- The reason this series regularly received soundtrack releases up until when the 2009 series was announced was the awesome music.
- The end of the first special. You'd expect a Merchandise-Driven show aimed at little girls to resolve the conflict with The Power of Friendship. Instead Strawberry wishes for an army of angry trees like the one that scared off the Berry Birds to confront the Purple Pieman and force him to return Apple Dumpling and all of the berries he took. Then she resolves the conflict with the The Power of Friendship.
- Strawberry chewing out the Purple Pieman in Pets On Parade after he tries to frame her for rigging the pet show.
