Punky Brewster Cartoon Series, "Christmas in July"

Back in the 1980s, TV networks had an odd habit of recreating their current popular sitcoms with Saturday morning animated counterparts. NBC was no exception, and for one season aired a cartoon show based on Punky Brewster.

They couldn't leave the sitcom formula alone. To "kiddify" an already kiddified show, they added a magical character named Gloamer, who sounds so much like Jar Jar Binks NBC should sue George Lucas for copyright infringement.

Here is Punky and her friends--and Gloamer Binks--in "Christmas in July." Enjoy!
