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.

Terrific Show...
23 March 2010 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I loved "Rainbow Brite" when I was a little girl! Though it was short lived (only 13 television episodes, one movie, and one live action video), it grew so many fans. As the episodes went on, new characters were introduced and the old ones were never lost. The show even had characters cross over from the movie. The tales of friendship and colors, fun and adventure carried on through many books and toys. It's too bad it didn't last longer or that it's so hard to find anything Rainbow Brite anymore. I highly recommend it to anyone who loves the 80s or someone who has a little girl they would like to introduce a wonderful cartoon character to. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to boys though.
