In the first season, there was one opening credit sequence made up entirely of location footage shot on tape in Chicago and a slightly different recording of the theme song. This was used for three weeks, then replaced with another opening sequence mixing live-action footage and an animated sequence. This lasted a few weeks and was replaced by yet another sequence mixing the location footage shot in Chicago and clips from episodes, ending with the tail end of the animated sequence being watched by the lead characters on TV. This third opening sequence is on all first season episodes in syndication in the United States, but the DVD versions have the appropriate sequences reinstated depending on the episode. See more »
I posted the first comment for Punky Brewster when I was at least 10. Back then I missed the show more than I do now, though it would be cool to see it again. I exaggerated when I called this Soleil Moon Frye's best, because the only thing I've seen her in besides this is an episode of the Wonder Years (though if ever see her in Sabrina reruns, maybe that'll change). Anyway, Punky was a great show, especially for young kids who wanted a positive role model. My favorite episode has to be the "Miss Adorable" one. I watched that tape of it so much it isn't even in good condition anymore. If it comes back, maybe I'll tape it. For now, I have the memories (and the theme song, for that matter) in my head.
