I loved this show growing up, and was about Punky's age.  But man, looking at the story synopses, a lot of those episodes were dark.  Not just here and there -- whole strings of episodes.  Punky's friend Cherie nearly dies in a refrigerator. Remember that?  Then Punky is shipped off to the orphanage for five episodes while Henry becomes seriously ill with a bleeding ulcer.  Then Punky watches the Challenger explode.  This is the last seven episodes of Season Two!

Punky's pluck must have made up for a lot of it, because I still enjoyed the show.  But jeez -- it was one never-ending Very Special Episode.
