Well, my last Flashback Friday post went over like a lead balloon! Only a couple of you remembered Jem and the Holograms! I actually felt sad for you! She was great!
So, this week, I wanted to do another Saturday morning cartoon hit, but I figured I'd need therapy if you didn't remember this one either, so I'll hold off on that. Instead, I want to highlight one of my favorite television shows from when I was an elementary school kid..
Anybody remember a spunky little girl who dressed in rainbow colors? Her hair was always in pig tails and she was being raised by her foster dad? (Hmmm, maybe that's where I first started thinking/learning about adoption?) Of course I'm referring to PUNKY BREWSTER! Her name was Penelope, but she went by Punky. She was left in a grocery store with her dog, Brandon (who names their dog that?) She eventually gets adopted by her foster dad, Henry. (Ohhh, I remember when that actor died in real life! I was so sad!)
So today, Friday, I salute Punky. She was a snazzy dressin', trouble finding, little cutie. (She had a cool name in real life too...Soleil Moon Frye.) She was one of the first to introduce adoption and the love that goes along with it, to me!
