"Mashed Potato Time" by Dee Dee Sharp is featured on Just Dance, Just Dance 3 (as an Xbox 360 DLC), Just Dance Now and Just Dance Unlimited.

Appearance of the Dancer

Original

The dancer is a woman who is wearing a pink and blue dress and shoes, and has pink short hair. She looks like a 1950s housewife.

Remake

No visible differences are shown, except for the fact that the dancer seems to be more realistic, and that she is in a slightly lighter hue. Also, her outline has changed from violet to magenta.

Background

Just Dance

The routine takes place in front of a blue animated curtain with many cherries on it, and a red line at its bottom. If you look closely, you can notice that the curtain slightly moves a bit.

Just Dance 3

In this version, the curtain is replaced by a dark blue wall with many mirrors. The cherries are hanging on them and they sway at the beat of the song.

Remake

The background is the same from the Just Dance 3 version. However, the cherries now glow every beat.

Gold Moves

There are 2 Gold Moves in the routine, both of which are the same; they are not available in Just Dance.
Both Gold Moves: Swing your right hand down, as if to wipe away sweat.

Appearances in Mashups

Mashed Potato Time appears in the following Mashup:

Captions

Mashed Potato Time appears in Puppet Master Modes. Here are the captions attributed to its dance moves:

  • Bake A Cake
  • Housewife
  • Sweep The Floor

Trivia

  • This is one of the slowest routines in Just Dance, this is as it is the only routine in Just Dance where both the difficulty and effort are 1.
  • This is the oldest song on Just Dance.
  • The song is referenced in Land Of 1000 Dances.
  • The original version has 26 pictograms, making it the song with the fewest amount of pictograms in the original Just Dance game. However the Just Dance 3 version only has 20 making it the song with least amount of pictograms on Just Dance 3, thus holding two records.
  • The following activities are shown by the pictograms: Vacuuming, holding a baby, cleaning the dishes, cleaning the windows, being tired, cooking, sweating and peeling potatos.
  • This song references The Lion Sleeps Tonight.
  • The dancer seems to be angry at the end, as she is seen tearing off her apron.
    • This seems to be because she is doing all house chores by herself.
    • In Just Dance, the apron disappears, while in later games it's still visible.
  • In Just Dance Now, the song was mistakenly placed between Party Rock Anthem and Pound The Alarm for a long time; this may be because its code name is Potato.
  • Just Dance and Just Dance 3 has a lyric error: a line reads Feel it in your feet now instead of Peel it to me now. This was later fixed in Just Dance Now.
  • In Just Dance Now, the first and third time "Hmm" is sung, it's not highlighted. Also, when "Peel it to me now" is sung, "now" is not highlighted, despite still being sung.
  • From Just Dance 3 onwards, the first time Potato is sung, it appears in the lyrics as Patato.
  • On Just Dance, the menu shows the title as Mashed Potato Time. However, the banner that appears before starting the routine says It's Mashed Potato Time.
