Which came first?
15 May 2002 | by ztonusSee all my reviews

Better yet, which was better? Which lasted longer?

I actually remember watching the cartoon first. I never saw the actual TV show until it repeated on the Family Channel. Believe it or not, folks, I liked the cartoon better. Maybe it's because I'm getting old.

Still, the cartoon works well enough, and hopefully, all the characters from the show did their own voices.

This opens up with Punky finding the end of the rainbow. There, she finds a little village with little creatures, but one named "Glomer" gets left behind when the rainbow disappears. It's kinda like E.T., only with a cuter girl

(and look at her now. Damn!)

This was a pretty ok show. One of my favorite episodes is where Punky has gone to the National Spelling Bee Finals. To help her out, Glomer creates a "bee" that actually helps you spell.
