Poor Strawberry Shortcake! Make The Cartoon Makovers Stop!
Why do things have to change? With the news that Strawberry Shortcake went and got a makeover, we were upset. How could you take a girl who looked like a ragamuffin and turn her into a tween queen? Seriously, Strawberry looks like the most popular Mean Girl in her class. And now there’s word that the Care Bears are supposedly getting a new look too, and they’ll soon be less plump with longer eyelashes (because even bears look better when they’re thin and have eyelash extensions). Mickey Mouse is next. Disney better not reduce his ear size. Flaws are what make the man…er, mouse. [NY Times]
