Storyline

On another planet, a girl called Wisp discovers an end to the universe's dark times and becomes the keeper of color. Thus her name changes to Rainbow Brite. As she battles silly villains like Murky and Lurky who prefer gray, Rainbow makes friends with many creatures. Some are other kids who want to help keep everything bright, others are animals such as the egotistical horse Starlite and the quivering sprite Twink. Only one person on the planet Earth knows of Rainbow Brite, her best friend Brian. When things go wrong in our world, all he has to do is use his rainbow key and ask Rainbow Brite for help.

A wonderful show for its time
18 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Rainbow Bright may be widely ridiculed and joked about these days, but it was, and remains one of the best children's show of the 80's.

I may be one of 4 guys who will openly admit to liking this show, and I take no shame in that. Rainbow Bright had something magical about it that captured my imagination as a kid. The plot, music, and production may seem very laughable by today's standards, but for those of us that remember this time period, it brings back very special memories. The things I always loved about the show (and still do) was it's sense of adventure and fun, and Murky & Lurky's oddball attempts to try and outsmart Rainbow and the Kids. All of the episodes had something fun and creative to them, and to a young kid it was gateway to a world of adventure. Call me crazy, but I just love everything about this show, the music, the animation, the girlish plots, you name it!
