I just had a thought the other day. I was thinking, how cool would it be to have a Punky Brewster for the new millenium. I was thinking of how cool it would be if Poet Sienna Rose Goldberg, Soleil Moon Frye Goldberg's Daughter, got in the acting business and reprised the role that her mother occupied over twenty years ago. I'm thinking it would be great to have a new Punky Brewster show that would be as educational and fun as the original, but at the same time still have its values unlike most of the tv youngsters watch.
I have always held Punky Brewster in high esteem as a fun and educational tool for young childern. It was as mentioned above both fun and educational. It was realistic in the fact that the characters were not always happy go lucky as with so many other tv shows that young kids watch.
I think that young kids might take a new version of Punky Brewster, and run with it. Parents as well could learn from it, and become nostalgic about when they used to watch the original on tv.
Obviously it would take a lot of effort and time to get the ideas and formats, characters and music in order. Infact we might not ever see the colminaiton of all these elements in to a real retro revival show, but it would be cool.
I incourage my fellow Punky Brewster forum members to share their thoughts, comments, or constructive criticisms.
