"I own all four seasons of Punky on dvd and each one was worth purchasing. I actually bought this item out of curiosity to see if there were any bonuses or anything new added. It was only $5, but even that was too much. It's only 8 episodes as described, all that were already included on the season one set. They aren't even all the best of the season. They are the first 8 from Punky Finds a Home Part 1 to Go to Sleep/A Visit to the Doctor. They stop short of one of the best, Miss Adorable. But I'm guessing that is on the next volume. So basically, this seems to be the first volume of the first season split into separate discs.
The box is plastic and is unnecessarily large, almost as big as the full season set, and only contains one disc which is housed in a black envelope. I don't know why they couldn't use a regular slim disc case, to take up less space and keep it from getting scratched by sliding it in the envelope. What a waste of packaging.
No bonuses and no new cover artwork, either. Just a different menu set up. I had mine sitting around for a few months unplayed, just taking up room. It's just silly and doesn't make sense to have released this. I suppose this would be good for someone who wants to sample the show without paying full price for the whole season. Or if you don't care about bonus materials. But if you like the show, or are buying it for kids, it's worth spending the extra cash for more episodes, plus bonus interviews and cartoons that you get on those.
I say skip these volumes and get season 1. If you have the seasons, skip this entirely. This dvd is just a waste of space.
2 stars - 5 stars for the quality of the show, 1 star for the product (packaging, no extras). Just not worth buying."

"I am wondering why this is being released. The complete live action series has been released over 4 season sets and Season 1 volume was released separately last year. The complete animated series minus the episode "The Shoe Must Go On" was released as bonus features in the season sets. The description does not mention any bonus features so I would recommend the season sets. If this set contained the Punky Brewster cartoon "The Shoe Must Go On" then I would buy it for the episode that Shout Factory did not release in their box sets."
