This animated series was based on the character introduced by Hallmark Cards in 1983. It made her animated debut in a syndicated prime-time special, Peril in the Pits, aired on June 27, 1984. Later, two more two-part specials were released, The Mighty Monstromurk Menace and The Beginning of Rainbowland.

In April 1986, it turned into a regular series format, as part of DIC's weekly syndicated Kideo TV block; eight new episodes were made for this run. Rainbow Brite remained part of the Kideo TV lineup until May 1987.

The Dark Lord had turned Rainbowland into a gloomy, dismal place, and a little girl named Wisp made it her mission to change that. With the aid of a sprite named Twink and a horse named Starlite, Wisp rescued the seven Color Kids and defeated the Dark Lord so that color and happiness could return to Rainbowland.

Renamed Rainbow Brite, Wisp's and the Color Kids' next task was to make sure that the color is never again taken out of the world, so they fought the evil Murky Dismal and his inept sidekick, Lurky to protect the world's color.

Rainbow Brite has a talking horse named Starlight. The color sprites mine color crystals, which Rainbow uses to add color to the world. Twink is the head sprite who often accompanies Rainbow on her adventures.
