Rainbow Brite was about a girl named Wisp, whose friends included a white Sprite named Twink and Starlite, the “most magnificent horse in the universe.” With the help of her friends, Wisp defeats the King of Shadows to rescue the seven Color Kids. She then brings light and color back to the universe and becomes Rainbow Brite.
Rainbow Brite premiered in 1983 and was created by Hallmark Cards. The cartoon sparked a range of Rainbow Brite dolls and merchandise created by Mattel. By 1985, the cartoon was famous enough to spark a feature-length film called Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer.
