  • A very hysterical episode!

    I've watched episode alot already and it's become my favorite episode of the third season of Punky Brewster. "Punky's Porker" is very hysterical! I really laughed my head off at the whole episode. It's quite a surprise to see that Punky befriends a pig in this episode. And what's more is that Cherie and Margaux thinks that Punky wants to save someone else that they think is a pig or something like that. But I loved this episode!moreless
