The girl with the striped moonboots and royal-blue epaulets is back from the 1980s to save the world for a new generation of young viewers. This time the gal, her rainbow-tailed horse Starlite, and her sidekick sprite Twink must face down a selfish princess who has stolen the biggest diamond in the universe, preventing light from reaching the world, and sending earth into a neverending winter. (Don't try to justify the plot from a scientific standpoint.) The rerelease of this 1985 production marks the relaunching of the Rainbow Brite franchise, following the successful returns of other '80s era cartoon characters like Care Bears and My Little Pony. Nostalgic young parents will revel in the big hair and big shoulders, and little ones will just enjoy the pretty horses and the colors. This 85-minute movie may also have some appeal to young males as the secondary hero is a boy with a robotic horse. (Ages 3 and older) --Kimberly Heinrichs

My Goodness! Just when I thought that this movie was out of print I come across this wonderful link at Amazon.com! Oh, how I could kiss them!
If you are looking for an 80s cartoon to bring back the good ol' days in animation you can stop here and click the "Add to Shopping Cart" button, because you have found THE most perfect 80s cartoon of all time. People of all ages, male or female will love this movie! Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer is full of colorful animation (excuse the pun) and great songs that just make you want to get up and dance like it's the 80s all over again.
Rainbow Brite must deal with her greatest adversary yet: an evil Princess who wants to take the greatest light in the world and keep it to herself, thus causing all of the color to disappear from the world. (no light = no colors!) This is an even bigger job than trying to fight Murky or Lurky! Along the way, Rainbow Brite meets a new friend and she learns that working together really does help. Only friendship and unselfishness can save the day!
This is a rare treat to find on the web, so if you really must have an 80s cartoon to keep you going, THIS IS A MUST HAVE! It definitely made my day (as it will over and over on my television set for years to come ^_~)!!

I love this movie! Ever since I was a little kid I've liked rainbow brite. And now at 15 it's no different than when i was 5. I definitely recommend watching this movie. All the rainbow kids and the little sprites were very cute and it actually had a good storyline. If anyone is reading this and you havent seen this great movie i'll give a little review for you :) Rainbow Brite is getting ready to bring spring to earth, when she tries to do this, her star sprinkles don't work. So she goes to find out the source of this problem was. When she goes back to Rainbowland she finds a strange horse there who is looking for her help, she goes with him... that's all i'm going to say, so watch it! :)

This movie is awesome and truly has a great storyline. It hasinspired and touched me in a way that only can be described when yousee the movie. The movie is about a girl named Rainbow Brite, who brings color to the Earth, with the help of her friends (the Color Kids, Starlite and the Sprites). All I can say is that, Rainbow Brite along with other countless 80's shows (Robotech, He-Man, She-ra, Jayce and the Wheeled Warrios, Transformers, etc.) inspired kids. You look at what kids shows are today and they don't even come close to the feeling you get when watching a good movie like this and the ones mentioned above as well. A great part of many people's childhood. END

I am in the same boat as everyone else: I love this movie and was ESTATIC to see it was available on DVD. I am just still waiting for it through amazon. I ordered the movie on May 16, 2006 and it is now July 6, 2006 and still no movie. I am NOT happy. I am disappointed in Amazon for advertising a 1 to 3 week delivery period. That is a complete lie and would recommend to anyone purchasing this movie to click on the the "new & used" link, or to use eBay if they can.

Aside from the ordering conflict- the movie itself is wonderful and I am so HAPPY to read that I am NOT the only adult (23 years old) who is in search of a classic! YOU GO RAINBOW BRITE!!

I was a little bit worried that this video quality might be horrible because it's older, but it's flawless! I was able to watch my FAVORITE TV show as a kid with my kids, and in perfect, flawless, streaming and audio format. Thank you, Amazon, for bringing this to me and my girls!!

So much nostalgia! I adored this show when I was younger, and I must say it did not let me down revisiting it. The bright colors and animation from this dvd are as memorable as when I saw it so many years ago. If you have not seen Rainbow Brite before and you enjoyed shows like Smirfs, Pokemon, and Dragon Ball, then I recommend taking a go at Rainbow Brite. It is the classic good versus evil cartoon with many good morals and fun characters.

Fabulous 80's classics! I am so glad these are available to share with the little girls in our lives <3

I bought this for my niece and both she and her mom (who grew up in the 80's) love watching this together.
There are some parts that could be scary for very young children (depending on what you and/or your child deems as scary) so I recommend an adult watch before hand. Please don't let that turn you off though... This is GREAT!!
