🎄 Previously on the Advent Calendar House, we saved Punky Brewster’s Christmas spirit in “Yes, Punky, There Is a Santa Claus.”

This time, join Punky in 1985 on on an animated adventure to the North Pole, courtesy of Glomer, her new magical leprechaun-gopher Ewok lookin’ friend. The ’80s were weird.


🎙 Guests:

Adam Pope (WIZARDS The Podcast Guide to Comics, @hojukoolander).

Steven (UFO Club).


💬 Topics & Tangents:

1. Comparing the original sitcom’s theme song to the cartoon’s theme.

2. Galoob made a plush Glomer.

3. Adam’s VHS cover has a very off-model Glomer.

4. The Master Christmas Switch’s effect on time reminded me of the “Futurama” episode “Time Keeps on Slippin’.”

5. Punky taught Adam how to wink.

6. Santa drops off the kids on the roof again, just in like in “Frosty the Snowman.”


📼 Commercial Break:

The Story of Phroomf commercial featuring baseball star Bob Boone, 1986.
