My sister and I were singing 80’s television theme song commercials on the way home yesterday, trying to remember which songs fit which show. We couldn’t remember the theme song for Punky Brewster, but I clearly remembered one episode of that show which, I am sure, every child of my generation remembers. You know what I’m talking about.
Cherie got stuck in the refrigerator.
I told my sister that I remembered only that episode and nothing else about the show whatsoever. She didn’t know what I was talking about and didn’t understand why it was so memorable so I had to explain with my serious voice: “Jennifer, she almost DIED.”
I can’t find this clip online, but I can see in my mind’s eye when they finally opened that fridge and that half-dead girl was curled in there. I remember that every time I lock Janie in the refrigerator and that’s why I set the timer.
