Movie Quotes: Theme Song: I went to the end where the rainbows are. There wasn't any pot of gold. Instead I found a new friend who is three feet tall… But when the rainbow faded, he was left behind. And a lot like Punky, he is one-of-a-kind. Punky Brewster, I always want you here with me-e. Uh-oh, uh-oh. Punky Brewster, together we're a fantasy. Uh-oh, uh-oh. Punky Brewster, we'll always be the best of frie-ends. Punky Brewster, you know our friendship will never e-end. Uh, oh. Uh, oh.
Crazy Credits: We know about 2 Crazy Credits. One of them reads:
The end credits for each episode roll over a scene of a manor garden. A balladeer sings a rather unflattering portrait of that episode's events to the tune of the series' theme music. Meanwhile, Blackadder searches for the balladeer, who is usually not seen at first, in order to silence him. During the credits of the last episode, Blackadder drowns the balladeer.
Goofs: We know about 12 goofs. Here comes one of them:
Continuity: As with any long-running show there are many inconsistencies between episodes. Characters' life histories, their birthdays and ages are reported differently from time to time as the writers invent new stuff for them that wasn't thought of when the series began. “Facts” are altered to fit the jokes, and a good deal of leeway is allowed.
Trivia: There are 2 entries in the trivia list – like these:
- The popularity of the series "Punky Brewster" (1984) inspired this Saturday morning cartoon for NBC. The network decided to use the same actors from the live series to voice the cartoon as well. To keep children's interest in watching, the magical Glomer was added to cause the children to land in one adventure after another.
- The word “It's” never formally appears in the on-screen title and is only used to differentiate the show from the live-action production.
