Punky Brewster is an American sitcom about a girl named Punky Brewster being raised by her foster parent.

The show ran on NBC from September 16, 1984 to March 9, 1986, and again in first-run syndication from October 30, 1987 to May 27, 1988.


Abandoned by first her father and then her mother at a Chicago shopping center, Punky Brewster finds herself taken in by Henry Warnimont, an elderly widower who is something of a grouch, despite initial opposition by social workers. Punky quickly becomes friends with Cherie Johnson, a young girl who lived upstairs in Henry's building with her grandmother, Betty Johnson, who worked as an RN at the local Cook County Hospital.

The first season follows the blossoming relationship between Punky and Henry as he fights to become her foster parent.

Troubles continue as Henry ends up in the hospital, forcing Punky to stay with Betty and Cherie. Then ended up on the radar of the social workers again, who intervened and placed Punky in the care of Fenster Hall again, from which she continuously tries to escape. She is eventually placed in the care of a wealthy foster family. When Henry recovers, he comes to Punky's aid and officially adopts her.
