Plum Puddin' is a talented dancer/choreographer in Berry Bitty City and one of Strawberry Shortcake's best friends. In the 1980's series, she had an owl named Elderberry and earlier she is male. In the 2009 series, she now has a puppy named Pitterpatch. Plum is a happy, carefree girl who is very kind and funny. Dancing is both her passion, and way of life. She is always seen doing it at, or out of her studio, Sweet Beats Studio. Very best dancer ever. She's very friendly and kind, and always puts others before herself. But she has a passion that can not be put out easily and as a result can be stubborn. In the 2009 version she is voiced by Ashleigh Ball.
A friendly girl who is very open, kind, and affectionate with her friends. She always tries to help them, even if they're too stubborn to ask for help or insist they do not even need it. Such as, when she secretly got everyone (without Strawberry) to help Raspberry make her outfits when she was overworking herself, in A Stitch In Time.
Plum is also known to be silly, she laughs a lot and loves things like being a prankster and jokes. She could keep laughing, much like a hyena if given something super funny. However Plum does not overdo it, she tries to not make someone feel bad, should something funny happen to them. But she does try to use jokes to clear up the situation.
With the good comes the bad, negative traits. She lacks leadership skills and happens to be very competitive. As shown when the girls were going to perform in a dance-off and her lack of good judgement and intention to cut out the complicated dance made things very hard for the others and eventually forcing them to drop out with small causalities occurring to each of them due to practicing 24 hours a day.
She also panics and gets nervous quickly, suggesting they run in the face of fear. She is also the first to whine in a situation.
Plum is a fair-skinned female with long purple hair is tied into a ponytail held with a blue scrunchie with two plums on it and a few loose bangs neatly placed around her face. It's revealed when her hair is down, it's perfectly straight and in her face. Her eyes are in a similar hue and her lipgloss is pink.
Plum's usual outfit is a lavender dress with a ruffled skirt like bottom and a pastel blue layer beneath it with a lavender mid-length cardigan with a plum button and two small pastel blue ribbons. She wears purple and white striped stockings and as she is a dancer/choreographer wears lavender leg warmers and purple ballet flats with a plum design at the top of her foot and purple soles.
Only for parties, Plum usually puts on a purple dress with layered pastel blue and lavender hems, lavender elbow gloves, and a glitzy wire-styled silver tiara with amethyst-colored plum designs.
During winter, Plum wears a long lavender coat with turquoise fur trim at the hem, neck, and cuffs. Her gloves or mittens are lavender. She kept her same stockings and adds snow-themed purple boots with pastel blue fur trim on top. Another winter outfit she wears consists of a lavender coat with fur trim, lavender gloves, and purple and white striped stockings.
Like the 2009 and 1980 renditions, her appearance is much very similar to the new design, but Plum's skin color is a bit more lighter than it is so she has lighter skin: She is consisted of having orchid-grape purple hair with lime green highlights on her hair that is tied into two pigtails while usually worn with her hair down. She wears glasses, wears a lime green 3/4 sleeved button down top alongside a purple and lavender checkered sweater vest while wearing distorted purple jeans with a plum design on both sides at the bottom right side with white crew socks and purple Mary Janes with a plum design in the middle of her shoes. She is as shorter than the rest of her friends, but is not as tall; easily appears to be slim.
