It wasn't any kind of plot point, but when we were working on our film we came to choose a pie type for each of the characters. Pete was apple - the quintessential American classic - even the stunt pie standing in for him in the live action scene was an actual apple pie. Sheriff, we decided, was a meat pie. Narrator came to be a strawberry pie. Of course, by that point, it only seemed proper to outfit him with an appropriate bandanna.
