Strawberry Shortcake in Big Apple City chronicles Strawberry Shortcake's trip to Big Apple City (an obvious parallel to New York City, also known as the "Big Apple"), so she can compete in a baking contest at "the little theater off Times Pear" (referencing Times Square). Strawberry's journey, however, is in jeopardy due to the constant interference of the Peculiar Purple Pieman of Porcupine Peak, who is her only competition in the bake-off. The Pieman counts on his kohlrabi cookies and a little trickery to beat Strawberry and her famous shortcake. A "Spinach Village" is also mentioned, a reference to Greenwich Village.
Strawberry Shortcake in Big Apple City was the second television special sponsored by the Kenner toy company, then owned by General Mills. The special marked the debut of characters such as T.N. Honey, Lemon Meringue and Horse Radish. It premiered on April 10, 1981 on 101 U.S. stations, among them WPIX in New York City and KTLA in Los Angeles.
