Katie, you should just buy the season DVDs of Punky Brewster.  When that weekend comes around, you can pop 'em in and indulge.  I did that with season 2 recently.  Cool news:  if you buy all 4 seasons on DVD, you get all but 1 of the Punky Brewster cartoon episodes.  (Oh yeah, I totally went there! So? :P) Just beware of the "Best of Season x" DVDs.  The full seasons are harder to find, but far better.  Season 2 has a 5-part episode that likely isn't on the Best of DVD.

I went on a Wings binge a few months ago; I watched the whole series in chronological order (except seasons 5 & 6, because 6 arrived in the mail first), and it was great!

I still need to watch the Bunjee Venture on YouTube soon.  Interesting note: the guy who voiced Captain O. G. Readmore in that episode also voiced Bunjee in the movies - Frank Welker.

There was a 5-part episode? About what??

The weirdish part is that while I remember watching Punk Brewster for at least a couple years, it turns out I was watching the re-runs that...some channel...was airing. So from the start of a 'season' to the end, they'd air a certain selection of episodes from each season, starting with 1 and going through 4. I didn't really get that I wasn't seeing a regular season until years later. :)

I rewatched 'Perils of Punky' today on youtube. Man, that spider-thing scared the crap out of me as a kid. And it was years before I saw the concluding episode, I always just caught the first one!

The 5-part episode was about Henry's business burning down just as he's about to adopt Punky... and she got taken away from him because he was broke. He was in the hospital during most of the story.  They stretched the heck out of that storyline.  Fortunately (for those who were watching the show "live"), it wasn't a cliffhanger.  But, yeah... 5 episodes near the end of season 2...

Is "Perils of Punky" about the Cave Demon thing?  I skipped those two episodes, even when I recently watched the 2nd season. Horror is not my bag.

OH MY GOODNESS, that was scary as all freaking get-out! For me it was the skeleton dog. He was all normal one minute, then all of a sudden...hey, skeleton dog!  :S Punky Brewster--good clean fun! I loved her sunshine pigtails.

I might be prejudiced, since I came from that era, but 80's (and 90's) TV shows and cartoons were the BEST. Remember when they were all pastel-colored and cute? Rainbow-colored animals come to save the day? I miss them.

Well, at this point and at our age(s) I would hesitate strongly to call it "horror". It's super cheesy.

Haha, yeah, I realized that her outfit in that two-parter is actually the 'classic' Punky look, the one they put on her cartoon character and everything--purple vest, sunshine pigtails, bandanas on her jeans for some reason! Oh 80's fashion.

ETA: Nevermind, she's re-wearing the iconic outfit there...it did come from earlier in the show.

Wow, that's an intense 5-parter subject matter. ...I might have to queue that up to watch at some point...

There's a LOT to that story.  It was as much frustrating as interesting to see how it would turn out. :yes:  It even includes an early cameo of Tannis Vallely.
...And it gives a realistic view of television reporters.  :evil:


EDIT:  Just found a site with concept art for Street Fighter x Tron. Nice!  I got the Blanka picture a while ago, but didn't realize there was a set.  :D
