Editorial Reviews

Punky is back and growing up fast! Soleil Moon Frye (Punky Brewster) and George Gaynes (Henry Warnimont) star in another season of the unforgettable hit show.

Punky is faced with a new set of dilemmas, including boy problems and all that goes with them. It is in this classic collection that Punky becomes a gossip columnist, skips school, steals a pig and imagines life as a dog!

With best friends Cheri and Margaux, and her ever-present dog buddy, Brandon - who has a personality all his own - Punky will once again charm everyone she meets.

Special features include 2 1/2 hours of the popular Saturday morning cartoon It's Punky Brewster, featuring many of the voices from the original show.

5.0 out of 5 stars A new season is finally here!! May 6, 2006
By MollyRK
Format:DVD
Over a year has passed since the second season of "Punky Brewster" was brought to DVD in February 2005. Now, after much anxious anticipation, Season 3 of this beloved show gets a summer release for everyone to enjoy!

The third season introduced a lot of changes to the Punky character. She was still just as sweet and energetic as always, but now that she's a fast-growing fifth grader, she traded in her pigtails for more of a 1980's pre-teen look and went from never wanting a boyfriend (remember that endearing Valentine's episode from Season 1?) to developing a few crushes. Season 3 zooms in a lot on Punky's friends, school, boys, and the craziness of growing up, but through it all she remains a kid: the same old kind, loving, "Spunky Punky" who adores her dad Henry, is loyal to her friends, and decorates everyone's life with a youthful spirit.

That classic "Punky" touch is sprinkled over the entire season and is truly charming for fans. But just as there are many quirky and colorful episodes (our beloved Punky becomes the school's nosiest gossip columnist, imagines life as a dog, and gets into an R-rated movie by disguising herself as the world's feistiest old lady), there are also some dramatic and heartwarming moments--perhaps more than either of the first two seasons. The beauty and closeness of the Punky/Henry relationship is fearlessly shown in many episodes, including "Metamorphosis," where Punky fears that Henry will stop loving her now that she is growing up; "So Long, Studio," where Henry is encouraged by his spirited daughter to open up a brand-new business that he could have never fathomed before; and most notably, "Un-Hooking Henry," which finds Punky sacrificing her own sleep to help the most precious person in her life overcome a sleeping pill addiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Season of Punky as the Kids are Older June 13, 2006
Format:DVD
The third season of the popular 80's kids series Punky Brewster arrives on DVD on July 25th. The third season (1987-1988) marked big changes for the show. This would be the first season that the show would air in syndication rather than as a regular part of the NBC television schedule. So if you missed these episodes the first time around now is your chance to own them.

There were several cast changes during the third season. The character of Mike Fulton (portrayed by T.K. Carter) was not seen as Punky's teacher anymore. A new child actor was introduced, the character of Spud. Spud was full of pranks, antics and jokes. The character who played Alan left the show following his parents divorce.

During the shows third season the actors were older and a new era as far as child/pre-teen television shows was emerging. "Just for kids" kind of shows such of the early 80's such as Silver Spoons, Diff'Rent Strokes, and Webster had been replaced by shows such as Growing Pains, Who's The Boss, The Cosby Show and Mr. Belvidere. Although the casts of these shows primarily consisted of child actors, the storylines often drew in an adult audience.

In the shows third season Punky Brewster continued to focus on the kids and in the tradition of the first two seasons hard hitting real life topics were addressed in nearly every episode. Topics dealt with by Punky and the gang included weight issues, divorce, rumors, plagiarism, grief management, dating, crushes and prescription drug addiction among other.

As with previous seasons there were celebrity special guests. The season opens with the episode "Reading, Writing, and Rock & Roll," in which the group Debarge pays Punky a visit at her home.

dig slip
Digipak slipcase I think. An outer cardboard sleeve that houses the inner fold-out case. Others I can think of that are like this are the South Park series and Married with Children.
