I have Seasons 1-3 and now my collection will be complete.

So DVD manufacturers should really take that into consideration, and include at least a few extras to make it worth buying a DVD set.

Although the considerable delay between this DVD set and Season 3 (which was released well over a year ago, in July 2006) was enough to concern some people, the fourth and final season of "Punky Brewster" will officially put hard-core fans at ease! We've had to wait almost two years to get this, but now that it's been announced for February 26 (right around Valentine's Day!) there's plenty to look forward to.

"Punky" certainly has maintained a solid fan base over the years, with plenty of grown adults eager to revisit the episodes, as well as legions of contemporary kids, whose parents can be assured that each show is thirty minutes of innocent, lighthearted fluff. Of course, those adults who loved the show as children will be hard-pressed to watch it now without cringing a little at the shameless sap packed into every episode. In addition, the plot (although entirely sweet) has very little plausibility, when you consider that it involves a girl abandoned by both of her parents at the age of eight, a lifelong bachelor who is at or above the age of sixty, who randomly comes across her and takes on the responsibility of adopting her, and apparently, Punky has no other living relatives whatsoever. On top of that, there seems to be zero emotional trauma on Punky's part as she enters adolescence without the guidance of her parents, and aside from a couple boyfriend woes here and there, the kid doesn't have a care in the world. Let's just say that although childhood abandonment is hardly a rarity in today's world, you'd be hard-pressed to find a child in that situation who is as optimistic and well-adjusted as Miss Punky Brewster, especially when you remember that she is now entering those difficult female teen years, but is still happy as ever.

Like many other Punky fans, I'm thrilled to see the final season finally coming to DVD. After all there was alot of speculation that shout factory lost the rights and we may never see this final season. Thankfully they still do have the rights and we will see this final season (complete with more punky cartoons).

This final season features 22 episodes (finishing the complete 88 of the series). The final episode titles are:

The Nun's Story
Crushed
Going to Camp
Poor Margaux
Brandon's Commercial
Passed Away at Punky's Place
Christmas Hero
See You in Court
Radio Daze
Aunt Larnese Is Coming to Town
Dear Diary
The Reading Game
Ouch
No No, We Won't Go
Bad Dog
Vice Versa
Wimped Out
One Plus Tutor is Three
The Dilemma
What's Your Sign?
Wedding Bells for Brandon

In this season, Punky starts getting interested in boys (and experiences her first crush, first kiss, and dating delemas). One such episode "going to camp" has Punky, Margaux, and cherie experience fun, tricks and puppy love at summer camp.

This final season also has such memorable episodes as "see you in court" (Betty crashes the bull horn car) and "passed away" in which Punky and Cherie get into a tangle when a customer passes out at her restraunt (punky's place).

I'm a bit dissapointed that Soleil didn't do an interview for the final season, but Shout Factory did a great job with all these DVD's, which are unedited.

A must have series, now complete!

I'm so happy to have the 4th and final season of this awesome 80s show. I can't wait to see these episodes. I'm the same age as Soleil and grew up watching Punky Brewster, this is just part of my childhood. Thank you Shout Factory!

Nineteen months after season 3 (July 2006), we finally to go see Punky's final 22 episodes on dvd. We will also get 7 episodes of the cartoon series in this set - leaving us 1 episode (The Shoe Must Go On) of owning the complete animated series. There are 42 episodes in the animated series. 8 were released in in the Season 1 box set, 16 were released in the Season 2 box set, 10 were released in the Season 3 box set - and like I said before 7 of the remaining 8 cartoons are included in the Season 4 set.
Getting back to season 4 - Here is the episode list:

The Nun's Story
Crushed
Going to Camp
Poor Margeaux
Brandon's Commercial
Passed Away at Punky's Place
Christmas Hero
Cosmetics Scam
See You in Court
Radio Daze
Aunt Larnese is Coming to Town
Dear Diary
The Reading Game
ouch
No, No We Won't Go
Bad Dog

Wimped Out

I was a bit disappointed when only a small part of the camp episode was featured on the DVD, if you notice in the end credits for that episode, some of the scenes were cut out. I don't know if this was an accident or not, but I don't remember back that far to know for sure.

In any case, I have all four seasons, my favorite show when I was in 1st grade....and still is one of my favorites. I hate to say it but I related to Punky more than most kids, my mother abandoned me too when I was 6 and I was adopted my grandparents, never knew my dad. So watching it today really hits a nerve and quite a few episodes make me cry.

But old or young you have to admit there was no other show, or girl quite like her.
