"Christmas Hero" is the third and final Christmas episode of the NBC sitcom Punky Brewster, aired as the seventh episode in the show's fourth and final season.

Synopsis[]

Punky desperately wants to get Henry a pocket watch for Christmas. When rich businessman Horatio Lake (Richard Kline) is robbed of a briefcase containing valuables, Punky solves the robbery and figures out that the thief was his son, Jerry (Donnie Jeffcoat). She tells him what went on — Jerry figured that he would take it and lie low with it for a few days, and then when the police gave up, he would say that he found it. That way, he would be the hero, and maybe Mr. Lake would pay more attention to him for a change. Jerry wanted attention from Mr. Lake after years of being pretty much ignored by him. He wonders how he could have let things get to a point where Jerry thought he had to do what he did and realizes his mistake of ignoring him all these years, vowing not to let that happen again. As a reward to Punky for solving the robbery and helping him and Jerry become closer than ever, Mr. Lake gives her a pocket watch, and she gives it to Henry as a Christmas present.
