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.

Animated version of heartfelt family sitcom.
1 February 2017 | by OllieSuave-007See all my reviews

This is the animated version of the family sitcom that I happened to catch on TV when I was a kid, remembered it being a heartfelt series about the continuing story of girl Punky Brewster and her adopted dad, Henry Warnimont.

I loved the chemistry and family relationship between Punky and Henry - very heartwarming and touching to watch. It definitely represents the true meaning of family and innocence, all the while bringing in some comic relief as well.

Good animation and some pretty fun episodes overall. Not quite up to par to the original live version, but still not a bad show for children.

Grade B-
