Punky Brewster Falls in Love With a Geek

The Day Punky Brewster Fell in Love With a Geek

Back in the day, Punky Brewster was one of my favorite TV shows. Another fave? Saved by the Bell of course. So it totally blew my mind when a fellow staffer came across this vintage Punky Brewster episode that brought the two together. In this scene, Punky is failing math and Henry enlists a tutor to help her make the grade. Although Punky doesn't want to learn math from a "geeky nerd," she quickly learns that being a geek is kinda hot.

Check out the clip above of Punky's first lesson with tutor Walker Wimbley (aka Mark-Paul Gosselaar) above, and the entire 10-minute scene after the break.
