PUNKY is an original animated TV series which tells stories from the everyday life of Punky, a spirited little girl, who has Down syndrome.

Punky is a happy little girl who loves music, dancing and hugs! She loves playing with her big brother, Con, and jumping around with her dog, Rufus, who is Punky’s best friend. He’s small, hairy and loves to steal slippers and, well, what dog doesn’t? Punky enjoys helping her mum around the house and trying to make Cranky, her grandmother, just a little less cranky. As a child with Down syndrome, Punky lives in the moment. If something isn’t right, if someone has a problem, Punky will set out to fix it. To Punky, the solution is always simple.

“Punky is a light-hearted, fun and exciting series at the heart of which lies an exceptional child.”
