Cute little show

Punky Brewster is about a little girl with a positive attitude , and she looks on the bright side which is cool. she also has her own fashion which makes her an indivual. I was born in 1985 and the show came out in 1984 but watching the dvds its a cute show. a clean show with no bad stuff or profanity.
