The CG animated series premieres Saturday, February 23, with two back-to-back all new episodes at 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. ET (encores Mondays, 11:30 a.m. ET) featuring Strawberry Shortcake and her friends in Berry Bitty City, a tiny world underneath the leaves of a berry patch. Beginning Saturday, March 2, the series will premiere new episodes at 8:30 a.m. ET. The new season will kick off with Strawberry and her friends welcoming a fan-favorite character from the franchise, happy-go-lucky animal lover Huckleberry Pie!

Huckleberry Pie is a brand new addition to this berry sweet animated series as the character opens his very own dog shelter. Although a bit unsure of himself at times, Huck’s friendship with Strawberry and the other girls, plus his talent for matching the perfect pup to the right friend, go a long way toward boosting his confidence.
For nearly 30 years, Strawberry Shortcake has been a favorite with kids and moms alike, teaching wholesome values and proving that little kids can do big things.
