Trivia

The popularity of the series Punky Brewster (1984) inspired this Saturday morning cartoon for NBC. The network decided to use the same actors from the live series to voice the cartoon as well. To keep children's interest in watching, the magical Glomer was added to cause the children to land in one adventure after another. See more »

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?
