Synopsis

It's Punky Brewster featured the voices of the original Punky Brewster cast as their respective characters. A new animal character, known as Glomer (voiced by Frank Welker), was added as the "leprechaun gopher". Glomer came from Chaundoon: a city at the end of the rainbow and possessed various magical powers. One such power was the ability to transport Punky and her friends, Margaux, Cherie, and Allen, and at times her beloved dog, Brandon, to any part of the Earth instantly.

Some episodes included Glomer having to correct his own mistakes when he plays around with magic and transforms Henry into a statue of Julius Caesar, or where Punky figures she can ask Santa Claus for anything. (Santa is on vacation at the time, and wearing an aloha shirt, and also knows Glomer). Through an accident, Punky makes Christmas come early (in July). Punky then decides not to ask Santa for anything, realizing how hard he works to give gifts to kids the world over.

DVD release

The show is available on DVD as part of the Punky Brewster DVD releases. Each season also contains a certain number of episodes from the animated series as a bonus feature. Due to music rights issues, "The Shoe Must Go On" is the only episode not released on DVD in the season box sets released by Shout! Factory. A song that played in this episode was the theme to Beverly Hills Cop. [2] It may be possible that this is the music that Shout! Factory had some issues with.

Popular Culture

  • It's Punky Brewster was parodied in the Robot Chicken episode "But Not In That Way" with Soleil Moon Frye reprising Punky Brewster, Henry P. Warnimont voiced by Seth Green and Glomer voiced by Tom Kane.
