During the pilot episode, Henry goes out into the rain to look for Punky. After he returns you can see that he never closed his front door when he left. He also never closes the door after returning and putting Punky to bed before retiring to bed himself either. See more »
During the opening credits you will occasionally see palm tree reflections in the windows. The series is set in Chicago, so that would be highly unlikely. See more »
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 was just watching vh1's I love the 80s and remembered Punky Brewster. I was hooked on that show and I even had a Punky doll. She had such a unique style and attitude towards life. I don't think there was another character on tv that empowered young girls the way she did. I was just a little kid when the show was on and because I hated my first name I decided that I wanted to be known only as Punky. So to this day, 18 years after the show premiered, I am still known as Punky. Who wouldn't want to embody her image! The best episodes were when Henry got really sick and Punky was taken away by that rich couple. I was soo worried that Punky would never see Henry again, weren't we all?! Oh yea, they need to bring back the reruns!
