Rose Petal Place (1984) & Real Friends (1985) animated gems

Rose Petal Place was an American-produced animated film from 1984, with a corresponding line of toy dolls made by Kenner. The concept for Rose Petal Place was created by David Kirschner and the film was written by Mal Marmorstein.

Rose Petal dolls were markedly similar to the fruit and dessert-themed Strawberry Shortcake and color-themed Rainbow Brite dolls. As in those lines, the characters' pastoral lives are interrupted only by the nefarious plots of a bumbling adult villain or two.

The primary characters of Rose Petal Place (introduced in the first movie) were:

    Rose Petal, a pink-haired, pink-clad doll whose singing keeps the other flowers alive. In the cartoon, Rose Petal was voiced by Marie Osmond.

    Sunny Sunflower, a yellow haired and clad tomboy who tells jokes to make the other flowers laugh. She is Rose Petal's closest companion.

    Iris, a purple and white clad painter of African ethnicity.

    Orchid, a purple clad shopaholic with white hair.

    Lily Fair, a blue haired and clad ballet dancer.

    Daffodil, another yellow haired and clad doll, this one obsessed with finance.

    Nastina, a widow spider who attempts to thwart the flowers' happiness, and even to kill Rose Petal on one occasion.

As is the case for most villains from 1980s doll lines, no concrete reason is given for Nastina's aggression other than her general sense of jealousy. Nastina is assisted by a horse-fly, Horace. (Horace was NOT a doll).

A second movie:

David Kirschner Productions and Ruby-Spears Enterprises created a second movie called Rose Petal Place: Real Friends (1985). This second movie introduced six new characters, which Kenner scheduled to be released as dolls shortly after. Unfortunately, although prototypes and marketing samples were made, the entire line was discontinued before the dolls could hit the shelves; today only designers at Kenner are likely to see these dolls in person.
