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 was male. This first version of Plum was brainy and a scientist. In the 2009 series, she had a puppy named Pitterpatch. Plum is a happy, carefree girl who is very kind and funny. She can sometimes be a graceful ballerina, and other times very clumsy. Dancing is both her passion and way of life. She is always seen doing it at, or out of her studio, Sweet Beats Studio. She's very friendly and kind, and always puts others before herself. However, 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.
Plum Pudding is 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.
In this series, not much is seen of Plum Puddin' and we don't get a big grasp of her personality. Apparently she is an intelligent nerd, but we don't see any actions that really show her as a nerd. She's wimpy, weak and useless, but still tries her hardest, and can be brave if needed. She's a bit shy, introverted and a scaredy cat. She must be creative since she wanted to be a photographer when she grows up.
Plum Puddin is much more clearly a nerd in the 1980s version. Plum is very similar to the earlier, one time appearing character T.N. Honey and probably meant to replace her. But in a greeting card they are both shown together, with Plum giving T.N. Honey a valentine and crushing on her.. Plum is described as a bookworm and budding scientist, as they are always Strawberry's scientific consultant. Great with numbers.
Plum is fair-skinned girl with long purple hair. Her hair is tied into a ponytail with a blue scrunchie with two plums on them, and her face is framed by loose bangs. When her hair is down, it is perfectly straight and in her face. Her eyes are in a similar hue and her lip gloss is pink. She is the most feminine in this form, and older than in 2007 and 1980.
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.
Plum's skin is slightly tanner in this form. She has orchid-grape purple hair with lime green highlights in her hair that is tied into two small pigtails while worn with the rest of her hair down. Her ponytail holders have small plums on them. She wears green framed glasses, wears a lime green 3/4 sleeved button up shirt alongside a purple and lavender checkered sweater vest while wearing purple jeans with a plum design on both sides at the bottom with lime green crew socks and purple Mary Janes with a plum design in the middle of her shoes. She is slightly taller than her friends and slender. She is flat chested.
Plum Pudding first was a feminine and short boy with flipped out sky blue short hair, a purple hat with a plum on it, a purple cardigan with a pink bow tie, and purple short striped shorts over green and white leggings with brown loafers. Plum Pudding has very few appearances in Strawberry Shortcake as a male, which is what Plum started out as. Quite quickly, Plum came out as a female with grown out hair into a light blue bob. She had much more confidence like this, and was often seen with Strawberry Shortcake's friends being more social than before. Plum's female outfit was basically the same, but the striped shorts was replaced with a purple pleated skirt. And instead of brown loafers she now donned cute purple Mary janes. Her bow tie was usually green now. Plum still kept her red round framed glasses. She remained a girl in the other series, growing up and becoming more feminine.
She Has A Pet Owl Named Elderberry In 1980 And A Dog Named Pitterpatch In 2009.
