Punky Brewster


A pair of vintage comedians are dusted off with a new look. Punky Brewster is back with new episodes, and the original Punky—Soleil Moon Frye—returns as the title character, now a single mother in her 40s.

Punky’s BFF Cherie Johnson (who shares the name with her character) is also back.
