"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 loved this movie as a child, but ever since i ordered it in decemeber, i am still waiting for and keep approving delays in my order - almost 8 months later. i'm getting pretty upset with amazon for advertising something on their website, that they cannot provide. don't bother ordering this dvd from amazon unless you like approving delays on your order.
i finally ordered one off ebay, and it arrived four days later. thanks ebay!"

"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! :)"

"It's missing the point dramatically to say that this film depicts girls as useless. There's a fairly typical boy/girl rivalry depicted, yes, but I don't believe anyone who watched the film from the start could reasonably think that girls are depicted as useless or powerless in it.
I was able to figure out that the Krys character's opinion of girls was biased and unjustified (and, ultimately, proven wrong within the film) when I was eight. Today I'm a self-described feminist and I still think "Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer" presents a number of positive and powerful role models for young girls. I'd happily recommend it."
