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.

innocent and cute
12 December 2010 | by See all my reviews

Since I was born in the 80s, I grew up watching 80s cartoons as a little girl. Rainbow Brite was another favorite of mine, cartoons back then weren't afraid to be innocent and cute, and no I don't want to criticize cartoons of today but it seems that kids shows these days need to be more edgy, sassy, etc. to interest kids.

What I like about 80s cartoons is that they weren't afraid to be cute and innocent. I still love the brightness of the show, and all the different little characters like the sprites they're so adorable and cute. I also like the names the writers chose for them like rainbow brite, moonglow, stormy, starlight, etc.

Its a sweet show and I wish they would come out with dvds of the entire series.
