DON'T SKIP THIS EPISODE! I know it's not about ghosts or vampires, but hear us out:
Tonight host Eric Dwinnells has invited his nearly life-long friend Jennie Lecesse (aka Blades) over to discuss a childhood trauma that nobody seems to talk about or even remember: The Nightmare World of Punky Brewster!
If you're a child of the 80's, there is a good chance you have fond memories of the precocious little rainbow girl in pigtails known as Punky Brewster...but hold on. How much do you really remember about the show? There was A LOT of creepy stuff going on in several episodes. Sure, you remember when Punky and her friends made their own workout video, or when her foster father, Henry, took her to see The Cubs play, and you may even remember the infamous episode where Punky's friend Cherie got stuck inside a refrigerator. But it got WAY more serious than that.
What about the one where Punky has to fight a demon in a cave? Or the one about a serial killer? Those are the ones we'll be focusing on tonight and warning: it may bring up childhood trauma you've blocked out all these years.
We'll also discuss what REALLY happened to Punky's mom. They say she simply abandoned Punky....but we think she was murdered and we even name a suspect tonight on Spooky A S!
