The Originally Aired Punky Brewster
"Punky" Brewster (staring former child-star Soleil Moon Frye) is a funny and warm 80's sitcom that was about a young abandoned orphan that caught the heart of an elderly man with a grouchy streak named Henry Warnimont (played by George Gaynes). The unlikely duo stumbled upon one another after Punky's father walked out on her family, and as if that weren't bad enough, her mother then abandoned her at a Chicago shopping center. Realizing she was alone and needed to find shelter for the evening, alone with her only remaining companion, Brandon, Punky discovers a vacant apartment in a local building.
Punky quickly finds a friend her age in Cherie Johnson (played by Cherie Johnson) who along with her grandmother, Betty (played by Susie Garrett), lives in Henry's building together. Johnson was cast by NBC in the role of Punky's best friend, as a character that was modeled and named after herself at the encouragement of her uncle (successful screenwriter and TV producer, David W. Duclon) who was known for his work on Happy Days in the 1970s.
As Punky and Henry's friendship grows, the grumpy elderly photographer gives up his quiet life to become Punky's foster father with the help of social worker Randi Mitchell (Talia Balsam), who forces Henry through red tape. Mitchell ends up rallying with Henry after the state forces Punky to stay at Fenster Hall, an emergency shelter for orphaned and abandoned children, until their court hearing. Finally, they get their day in court arrives and the judge approves Henry's wish to become Punky's foster father (later adopting her in the following season of the show).
