This is the first (but not the last) time that a regular 30-minute episode of Punky Brewster was replaced with two separate little 15-minute stories. This was done in case Monday night football ran late, and that way, they could show a 15-minute episode of Punky instead of cancelling it altogether.
When Punky thought that Henry abandoned her at the store, she walked back to the apartment by herself. How did she get in without a key?

In the entire series, Henry's room is never shown.
Actress Melissa Joan Hart auditioned for the role of Punky Brewster, but she was unsuccessful. She and Soleil Moon Frye are very close friends in real life, and they even have children who are the same ages (Hart has two sons, and Frye has two daughters). Frye was on many episodes of Hart's popular series Sabrina the Teenage Witch.
This is actress Cherie Johnson's favorite episode (she plays herself on the show). She enjoys watching it so much because it was her first acting job, and she was so young and inexperienced, she ended up shrugging her shoulders and waving her arms around a lot. Johnson fondly remembers how she "didn't know what she was doing" at the time.
