Webcomic / Frog Raccoon Strawberry

Go To
Frog Raccoon Strawberry is a fantasy / sorta superhero webcomic by animators Kyle Carrozza and John Berry.

It follows the misadventures of Strawberry, a raccoon in a frog suit who goes about fighting crime. But she's not a superhero, oh no, she's a Helperton, a totally different thing.

In any case, in between her Helperton duties, she hangs out with her friends, goes about her daily life, tries to find love, and trains to be the best Helperton possible. Oh, and despite how she acts, she's not weird. So don't call her that.

The comic was hosted by on Dumm Comics though it has ended it's run with the site in June 2014 due to Kyle taking on a animation job (Mighty Magiswords) and being too busy to work on it further. He promises the webcomic will return someday, but for the time being it's on hiatus. In 2022 he started uploading the comic to Webtoons.

Frog Raccoon Strawberry has the following tropes:

  • Berserk Button:
    • Calling Strawberry "random" or "weird"
    • For Lemonade it's being ignored.
  • Extra Eyes: Marissa has a few on her though, being an alien, she hides them well
  • Fantastic Racism: Marco feels that Strawberry is doing this by wearing her frog suit since he's well..a frog.
  • Genki Girl: Strawberry sometimes as well as January
  • Insistent Terminology: Strawberry prefers to be called a "Helperton" rather then "superhero" though there's very little difference between the two.
  • Insult Backfire: Pretty much how a lot of Strawberry and Lemonade's banter against foes go.
  • Knight of Cerebus: The Green Shadow. The first villain without even a shred of humor, and the only one to visibly draw blood.
  • Lions and Tigers and Humans... Oh, My!: A universe shared with animals and humans through the latter if very rare to see.
  • Nightmare Face: Marssia when she expresses any anger. Comes with the territory of being an alien.
  • Only Sane Man: Marssia and Marco play this role given everyone else is either crazy or silly.
  • Pok√©mon Speak: The Frog Spirit has a pet Gilbert Gottfried who only says "Gilbert".
  • Pretty Freeloader: January whose been rooming with Marssia for about a year and hasn't made much effort to find her own place. Marssia practically forces her to find a place.
  • A Pupil of Mine Until He Turned to Evil: The Green Shadow who was the previous apprentice to the Frog Spirit before Strawberry.
  • She Cleans Up Nicely: When Strawberry ditches the frog suit for a dress, she looks rather cute.
  • Show Within a Show: In-Universe: Horatio sells the rights to Strawberry's likeness for a comic series based on her. Giving her a copy to look over which acts as a Alternate Continuity of the main comic. Strawberry is...less then impressed.
  • Straight Man: Marssia, often with Strawberry or January.
  • Super Mode: Strawberry gains two extras after some training. "Red Mode", which accesses her strawberry powers when she gets angry and are much more devastating. And "Even Greener Mode" which makes her attacks Lily Pad based and is apparent much more stronger.
    • Likewise Lemonade gains a few with Lemon, Citrus and Lemon-Lime mode which replaces her head with the named fruit and allows her their properties.
  • Take That!:
    John Kantpronunci: And since no one will hire—err—since I willingly left the industry, cartoons have sucked hard ever since!
    Strawberry: You can't possibly believe that objectively.
    John Kantpronunci: It's science! All modern cartoons suck and any that don't completely ripped me off and therefore suck by proxy! Are you anti-science?! That's dumb! You're dumb! And everyone on my blog will agree on your dumbness once I tell them!
    Strawberry: Yer kind of a jerk, aincha?
    • The same storyline lampooned Amid Amidi of Cartoon Brew, though Amid seemed to have enjoyed being poked fun at.
    Amid Amidi: ...And that's how I can tell from this screenshot that Phineas and Ferb is the greatest boil on the buttock of all mankind since Home Movies.
