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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›

Still emotional after all of these years. Yes I know it's a sappy and cheesy show but I still love it. Two misfits find each other. An abandoned little girl and a lonely old man. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Mo
