Cherie Johnson was born in the small town of Duquesne (Du-Kane) a few minutes outside Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. This African American/ Puerto Rican little girl was soon to be a trendsetter having her sights on Hollywood, California at the young age of 6. Little did a young Cherie know that she had a famous uncle (David Duclon, the creator of Silver Spoons, producer of Mork & Mindy, The Jefferson’s, Happy Days, The Odd Couple, Laverne & Shirley, etc) who held her close to his heart and mind. Using Cherie as a muse, he wrote a pilot for NBC titled "Punky Brewster" and anticipated his niece would solely be thrilled that he named one of the characters after her. Her response was not that of a typical 6 years old.Aspiring to inspire!
It's good to talk.
