Punky Brewster Challenger

I remember watching the Challenger space shuttle launch inĀ grade school and then heading to the cafeteria for lunch shortly after the explosion.

In a very special Punky Brewster, Episode 44 “Accidents Happen”, Punky reacts to the shuttle disaster featuring special guest Buzz Aldrin. Even though I was roughly Punky’s age at the time, I don’t remember having any any kind of traumatic reaction from the disaster but who is to say? I still remember that day, after all. It was the last time they wheeled a TV into the classroom for a shuttle launch.

The episodeĀ is is available in two parts on youtube.
