Synopsis

Spunky nine-year-old Penelope "Punky" Brewster (Soleil Moon Frye) and her foster father, middle-aged bachelor photographer Henry Warnimont (George Gaynes), continue to adjust themselves to one another's presence (sometimes successfully) as the heartwarming sitcom Punky Brewster begins its second season on NBC. Likewise coming back for more is Susie Garrett as nurse Betty Johnson, Henry's upstairs neighbor. New to the series this year is T.K. Carter as schoolteacher Mike Fulton, who is extremely simpatico with Punky and her classmates Cherie (Cherie Johnson), Margaux (Ami Foster), and Allen (Casey Ellison). The season opens with an episode featuring a guest-star turn by boxer Marvelous Marvin Hagler. In subsequent stories, former Happy Days regular Cathy Silvers appears as a confused "client" when Punky and Cherie establish their own baby-sitting service; teacher Mike Fulton helps Punky through a difficult emotional crisis by revealing that he, like she, was adopted; Allen learns a vital lesson when he foolishly pokes fun at a mentally challenged classmate; and Peter Billingsley, star of the classic theatrical feature A Christmas Story, is seen, appropriately enough, in the series' Yuletide episode (but he doesn't shoot his eye out!). Perhaps the most memorable of the second-season Punky Brewsters is the two-part "The Perils of Punky," in which Soleil Moon Frye plays a dual role. With the season's final episode, "Accidents Happen," featuring Buzz Aldrin in a cameo role, Punky Brewster's NBC run came to an end. However, the series proved so successful in rerun syndication that it was revived as a syndicated series in 1987 -- nearly two years after its initial cancellation. ~ Hal Erickson
