Podcast for 05/03/08 - Strawberry Shortcake

Before we get things rockin' here, does anyone else out there share my deep and abiding love for The Peculiar Purple Pieman of Porcupine Peak? Best. Melodrama villain. Ever!

As you may have already figured out, today's show take us on a journey to the sugar coma inducing sweetness of Strawberryland, complete with a talking sun, Welches worthy bad guys, and thematically appropriate animal counterparts. Oh yeah, it was the 80's and it was Strawberry Shortcake

We were lucky enough to have an episode each from the first and second run of specials from the original incarnation of Miss Shortcake. You'll be able to hear some differences in writing, voice work, and plot structure, which isn't as weird as it sounds given the era and change in production companies. ;) You can read all about it in the linked Wikipedia article.

Today is the last day to vote in the SMCS poll about upcoming cartoons, so if you want your voice to be heard you'd best get to clicking.

If everything goes according to plans, you'll be able to subscribe to The Saturday Morning Cartoon Show podcast via iTunes in the next few days. The file will only stay on the WIDR servers for a week though, so you should download it as soon as you can. As always, all podcasts will be available here on the blog as long as the links stay active. Have fun everyone!
