[edit] Real World References

Holly Hobbie and Strawberry Shortcake were children's characters designed in the 70s and owned by American Greetings. Among the merchandise of the two characters are plush dolls.

Ace Hardware's description of Holly's death is based on the song "Teddy Bear's Picnic". Holly got a "big surprise", and not even her disguise could save her.

"If you go into the woods today
You're in for a big surprise.
If you go into the woods today
You'd better go in disguise.

For every bear that ever there was
Will gather there for certain, because
Today's the day the teddy bears have their picnic."
