Awesome / Punky Brewster

  • Both the live action show and animated series were nominated for Emmys. The primetime show got nominated for the CPR episode; the animated show was nominated for an episode about a deaf boy (whose voice was supplied by an actual deaf child).
  • The pilot was a three-parter called "Punky Finds a Home." During Part Two, she has to go to Fenster Hall, a group home for orphans. She starts to put her stuff in the bureau in a room she shares with two other girls. Lisa, an older tough girl, tries to stop her, until Punky gives a Rousing Speech about how her stuff is going in that drawer. You got it, BOZO?
