Strawberry Shortcake

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Strawberry Shortcake with sound clips and images.
Franchise: Strawberry Shortcake

For our first Strawberry Shortcake voice compare it only makes sense to start off with the main character of the series herself, Strawberry Shortcake.  Strawberry started her career as a greeting card character but has since found herself on everything from toys to posters to a whole variety of animation.

Strawberry began as a intelligent and energetic first grader who had red hair and freckles.  Her personality has basically remained the same throughout time but the freckles have since disappeared and her hair has been all kinds of different red and pink shades.

Strawberry first appeared in a set of six made for television specials that aired between 1980 and 1984. After that she seemingly disappeared until in 2003 the franchise was relaunched, this time with its own series.  That series ran for four seasons and in 2009 the franchise was again revamped. The latest series now runs on the newly launced HUB Network.

In my opinion all three of these ladies did fantastic jobs with the voice. They made her innocent enough to pull off being a youngster but brought out the intelligence and friendliness that made her the leader of the group.  

Russi Taylor holds a special place for me because that is the version I grew up with however even though at the time I didn't realize it, now I can definitely hear the trio of Ducktales' characters in that voice.  In the end though I think my vote goes to Anna Cummer with Sarah Heinke in a very close second.

1. Sarah Heinke- Out of all the voices, she is the closest to sounding like a young girl. Strawberry is slighty older than her 1980 version (I'm guessing around 8 or 9). Sarah makes Strawberry sound like a cheerful and kind girl. I personally liked her voice in Season 1 and in the first two episodes of Season 2 (Here Comes Pupcake and Peppermint's Pet Peeve) because it sounds like a little girl naturally. The rest of Season 2 and onward, it's easy to tell that Strawberry sounds older due to Sarah going through puberty. However, I do think that it fits Season 4 better since Strawberry looks like she is in her teens at that point (looking around 14 or 15).
2. Russi Taylor- I think her voice matches the character pretty well. In this version, Strawberry is stated to be 6. Russi's cutesy voice matches the sweet and energetic little girl that Strawberry is. However, I do think that she does switch to a slightly more feminine version of Huey, Dewey, and Louie voice and her Minnie Mouse voice slips in at times.
3. Anna Cummer- I thought her voice was fine for the role. Strawberry is about 12 in this version so it makes sense that her voice sounds the oldest out of the trio of voice actors. While I do like that Strawberry sounds upbeat and feminine, Anna makes her sound like she is a stereotypical girly teenager, which irks me for some reason.

Russi for me. That's cuteness you can't deny.

@HienFan Actually I think Russi is better, Heinke annoys me often and Anna... is very stereotypical girly girl

Disagree with the editor here: I think Cummer was the weakest. Sarah Heinke perfected the voice, IMHO. Russi Taylor was okay, but yeah, a bit too Disney-ish. xD

I love Russi Taylor's Strawberry. Sarah Heinke would be a very close second, I grew up with her being Strawberry.. . . For some reason I don't like Anna Cummer's
