I wished and wished for Punky Brewster to be my bff when I was a little girl. Sadly it never came true, but I still got to pretend by following her silly antics every week. Here is a list of 5 things the Punkster taught me:
1) Mix and match your clothing.
2) Interior Design
3) Be fearless.Not only with clothing, but also during the episode aptly titled "Perils of Punky." That episode scared the crap out of me. I couldn't watch it. You laugh, and say "Oh, Nicole, you're so ridiculous for being scared of a kid's show."
youtube. I can guarantee you will have nightmares for a week.
Punky and her friends get lost on a camping trip and end up in a cave. Soon, Punky's gang disappears and she finds herself all alone to face some kind of demon, or witch or other evil spirit. Instead of running away she faces it head on to save her friends. That's pretty kick ass because I would have just peed myself and crawled into the fetal position until the giant spider ate me.
4) How to handle tough situations
5) Be a loyal friend
This one is pretty self-explanatory, no? Plus there is a whole episode about "blood sisters" and they squish their fingers together with ketchup, because you know AIDS was also a lesson taught on this show. Punky would do anything for her besties and that's what makes her so wonderful. Who wouldn't want to be friends with the Punkster?
