She loves Seasons 1 and 2 and she can't wait to see Season 3.

Punky attended school and had daily adventures with her friends Cherie, Margeaux, Allen and her dog Brandon.

My second quibble is that there is still NO closed-captioning or subtitles available on this DVD set.

The second season of Punky Brewster will be in stores on February 8th, 2005. This is awesome news for fans of the series who were treated with the first season of Punky Brewster on DVD less than a year ago. The second season includes 22 episodes from the 1985-1986 season. If you are from the 80's you surely remember and love Punky Brewster. Soleil Moon Frye starred in this series as a loveable orphan who found a new home with an older man named Henry. Punky attended school and had daily adventures with her friends Cherie, Margeaux, Allen and her dog Brandon.

The episodes of the second season are a bit different than season 1. You can tell instantly that the writers tweaked the show a bit. Henry is now much more warm to Punky and her friends, whereas during season 1 Henry was much more grumpy and sometimes mean. The goofy, nerdy building super doesn't make frequent appearances. Season 1 was primarily about Punky and her accepting that she is an orphan and developing her relationship with Henry. Season 2 is for the most part about Punky and her friends.

Punky is now in the fourth grade and her teacher Mike Fulton (formerly Mike from Fenster Hall), plays a large part in Punky's life. Mike is a mentor and a friend. In the episode, "Just Say No," when Punky and Cherie are influenced to use drugs by an ultra cool girl group named The Chicklits, Mike helps Punky and Cherie organize their own group of kids who Just Say No. In the episode, "The Search," Punky and Mike embark on a search to find their mothers. In a very bittersweet episode, Mike and his mother are reunited and Punky still doesn't find her own mom. Mike was in so many season 2 episodes he should have been included in some of the season 2 artwork for the DVD.

I was only a year old when Punky Brewster first aired on NBC. I am now 21 and have been waiting for this show to be on DVD since it went off the air as reruns when i was in the 4th grade...about 1994. I think Punky was my idol. I loved everything about her and the fact that I looked like her. Its so great to watch all these episodes now, because its hard to even remember them. I remember the characters and some stories, but not well enough. I get so excited to come home after going to school (college!) LOL and watch a few Punky episodes. Its funny how much things change. I loved all the episodes, but "Perils of Punky", the 2 part episodes were so strange! I don't know if little kids were enjoy it, but its Punky so its ok. I just wasn't thrilled with those episodes.

I also loved that there were stickers!!!!! I hope that they continue putting out the rest of the episodes of Punky. As someone else has mentioned, the cartoons are a great bonus! I loved the saturday morning cartoon and we wouldn't be able to have them w/out these DVD's. I also hope that the next DVD set has an interview w/Soleil because that would make the set complete. I think its only fitting that she talk about the show that launched her career.

If you're looking for something to remind you of your childhood in the 80's...this is it! My boss's daughter (and my friend) is 10 years old and I have her hooked on Punky. Her mom watched it as a teenager, and likes that I have been buying them and sharing them with her. I love to see that kids now days are able to see something WORTH watching. Shows today just aren't what the 80's and early 90's were.

The Punky Brewster saga continues with this fabulous set of Season 2!

Punky Brewster ROCKS!!

This 4 disc set contains all 22 episodes of the 1985-86 season, and 3 hours of the popular Saturday morning animated show It's Punky Brewster, as well as an interview with Helsinki-born actor George Gaynes, who played Henry Warnimont, Punky's foster (and later adoptive) father. An extra special feature of this Season 2 set is a sheet of free Punky Power stickers included in every box. I LOVE Punky Brewster! I've got Punky Power!!

In Season 2, Punky and the gang are back, and a year older. Punky and her friends are now 9 and in the fourth grade with Mr. Mike Fulton, who was introduced at the end of Season 1 as a worker at Fenster Hall, the emergency children's shelter. Now Mike has gotten a job as a teacher, and Punky, Cherie, Allen and Margaux are all in his fourth grade class.

One of the differences between Season 1 and Season 2 is the absence of Eddie, the goofy, and geeky apartment building's maintenance man. Although, I can understand his removal, as this season is primarily about Punky, and the developing relationship with Henry and her friends, I still kind of missed Eddie in the second season. To me, he injected a different kind of humor into the show, with his constant mishaps, and his run-ins with Henry and his wisecracks. Oh well. The show is still terrific anyway. I just kind of missed those scenes, that's all.

Season 2 also deals more with serious issues than they did in Season 1, which though had some heavy episodes (Fenster Hall, I Love You, Brandon, etc.) they weren't as many.
