The bad guy in the world of Strawberry Shortcake. (He was a bad guy. Strawberry Shortcake is too innocent to have a villain.) He wore a purple chef's outfit, and would frequently prance about and chant to himself to be "Because I'm the Peculiar Purple Pie-Man, of Porcupine Peak! A-ra-ta-ta-ta-tata, a-rata-ta-ta!" and scowl. He was constantly kidnapping people and pets and recipes and just generally messing around with the Strawberry Shortcake crew, though whether out of jealousy for their superior culinary skills or misplaced affection, the world will never know. He had an evil partner, a foxy lady called Sour Grapes, who was a lot meaner and smarter.
