Rainbow Brite and Friends

I am an 80s kid. I used to watch cartoons when I was just a little girl (and up to now, but so what?) and I remember liking Garfield and Friends, My Little Pony and Friends, Smurfs, Carebears, Gummy Bears, G.I. Joe, She-Ra, He-Man, and Thunder Cats. But my favorite was Rainbow Brite and Friends.
I can't believe I almost forgot about the other characters in this show. I badly needed to refresh my memory, and that's what I did., Thanks to

It was story of a girl named Wisp, who found out about a place called Rainbowland. She wanted to save it from the darkened state it was in. She was instructed to find the Color Belt and the Sphere of Light.

The first met a white sprite named Twink. Next, they found the magnificent horse Starlite.

They endured many struggles but finally found the Color Belt and the Sphere of Light. With the help of the rainbow, she was able to The Dark One and restore color and happiness to the land.

She was given the name Rainbow Brite and put in charge of keeping color alive in Rainbowland, and on Earth.

Her helpers are the Color Kids (one for each color of the rainbow: Red Butler, Lala Orange, Canary Yellow, Patty O' Green, Buddy Blue, Indigo, and Shy Violet)

and the small furry Sprites (Romeo, OJ, Spark, Lucky, Champ, Hammy, IQ) who mine Color Crystals in the Color Caves.

But not all inhabitants of Rainbowland support Rainbow's efforts. Murky Dismal and his sidekick Lurky are always up to some mischief - trying to take the Color out of the world.

A trip down memory lane... So you also like this colorful cartoon character? =)
