Punky Brewster wasn't the only tv show to deal with someone discovering they're actually a missing child when they see themselves on a milk carton.
The tv show Small Wonder did this as well in the later 80's and the author Caroline B. Clooney wrote the book The Face On The Milk Carton which was published in 1990 and was later turned into a TV movie which aired in May 1995.
Punky Brewster S2E11: The Gift is a beautiful and heartfelt episode where Punky learns to see a person's inner beautiful and help them focus on their good qualities and not their weaknesses. Also Punky's teacher Mike Fulton teaches the class about music appreciation and how some of us have hidden talents that need to be shared.
Coming just in time on October 31st a Punky Brewster Halloween Episode.
After Punky and her friends try to play a trick on Old Lady Peevy after she ruins their Halloween fun, Punky learns a lesson in humility and respecting your elders in S2E10: Love Thy Neighbor which aired on November 17, 1985.

15 years, where have the years gone? So much has changed since then and yet in some ways still the same. You're still gone. Through your fight, you taught me to be strong and through your faith you taught me that I can have peace through God. Your laugh was so contagious sometimes it's as though you're still here. whenever I throw my head back and laugh my heart cries out because I picture you doing the same thing from so long ago. It's hard to believe I have any memories left as I was so young too young even to remember you when you were whole. When I would hear you sing to our Lord with your broken voice praising him. I felt so ashamed that my faith was never was never going to be as strong as yours. Even with your broken body you sang to him and he answered your call and brought you home to him.
I love you Mom, I always will and I'm sorry for all the times I should have told you and didn't .
One day we'll be together again and we'll be the family we were always meant to be.
