Along the guest stars were child actress Mana Ashida and the designer of Hello Kitty, Yuko Yamaguchi.

When released in cinemas, the movie was double-billed with the short film Onegai My Melody Yū & Ai.
Ruby and her friends are all headed to Sweetsland, the home of the Sweetspets, to celebrate Princess Mana's birthday with a festival. However, during the preparations, a strange object falls from the skies, containing a male Sweetspet named Gumimin. Unknown to everyone, he may be the only one who can save Sweetsland from impending chaos, and eat all the sweets in the land to help save it.
