Strawberry Shortcake: The Sweet Dreams Movie is a 2006 American computer-animated family fantasy adventure film produced by DIC Entertainment Corporation and released theatrically in select cities on October 7, 2006 by Kidtoon Films. It was the first feature-length film to feature the eponymous American Greetings property, and stars the voices of Sarah Heinke, Rachel Ware, Nils Haaland, and Bridget Robbins. The film also includes the first appearance of the villain, the Peculiar Pie Man, since Nelvana's Strawberry Shortcake specials from more than twenty years earlier.
After arranging a sleepover with her friends, Strawberry and the rest travel to the Land of Dreams on a Dreamboat that Ginger Snap has built, in order to stop the Pie Man from taking over their residence.
