Storyline

A cartoon spin-off of the wildly popular television show Punky Brewster, the series revolved around the adventures of Punky and her pet Glomer, who was a magical leprechaun gopher; because of course every '80s cartoon needed anthropomorphic sidekick.

Quotes

Theme Song: I went to the end where the rainbows are. There wasn't any pot of gold. Instead I found a new friend who is three feet tall... But when the rainbow faded, he was left behind. And a lot like Punky, he is one-of-a-kind. Punky Brewster, I always want you here with me-e. Uh-oh, uh-oh. Punky Brewster, together we're a fantasy. Uh-oh, uh-oh. Punky Brewster, we'll always be the best of frie-ends. Punky Brewster, you know our friendship will never e-end. Uh, oh. Uh, oh.

The liveaction show came first; but the cartoon was better.
17 November 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Like "Tales from the Crypt" and "Jumanji," "It's Punky Brewster" was a case of an animated spinoff being preferable to the original live-action source. This version had a different theme song and a new character (a little creature called Glomer) added to the mix - imagine a cartoon version of "The Parkers" trying that - who took Punky, Allen, Cherie and the rest to all manner of adventures, with a result that was less icky than the liveaction show. Plus it gave George Gaynes more dignity than the "Police Academy" movies, I bet.

But one question - why wasn't Cherie's mother in this?
