It's Punky Brewster


It's Punky Brewster Information

It's Punky Brewster is an animated spin off of the live action television show Punky Brewster. The show was animated by Ruby-Spears Productions.

Synopsis

It's Punky Brewster featured the voices of the original Punky Brewster cast as their respective characters. A new character, known as Glomer (voiced by Frank Welker), was added as the "leprechaun gopher". Glomer came from Chaundoon, a city at the end of the rainbow and possessed various magical powers. One such power was the ability to transport Punky and her friends, Margaux, Cherie, and Allen, and at times her beloved dog, Brandon, to any part of the Earth instantly. Some episodes included Glomer having to correct his own mistakes, as when he plays around with magic and transforms Henry into a statue of Julius Caesar. It's Punky Brewster is the show's unofficial name; on the show itself and in TV listings, it was simply called Punky Brewster.

In season 2, shows 4 through 13 had a first-run episode and a repeat from the first season. The show was canceled in September 1987 but returned in replays in October 1988 after NBC's live action pre-teen show 2 Hip 4 TV was canceled. Selected episodes were syndicated as a revolving feature of DiC's Maxie's World show in 1989.

DVD/VHS releases

Due to music rights issues, "The Shoe Must Go On" is the only episode not released on DVD in the season box sets released by Shout! Factory. A song that played in this episode was the theme to Beverly Hills Cop. It may be possible that this is the music that Shout! Factory had some issues with. The show was also released on VHS in 1985, and several different tapes were made.
