Lite Sprites, Lite Sprites, turn on the magic of colored lights
A line of toys that debuted in 2011 and spawned an animated special
that aired on The Hub
. The Lite Sprites bring color and light to the world of Lite-Topia
, except for Bleak, the rebel sprite who steals color.
The special includes examples of:
- Big Darn Heroine - Bleak appearing at the end of the flashback.
- Cave Behind the Falls
- Color-Coded for Your Convenience - A bit of a theme for this series, actually.
- Cultural Rebel - While the other Lite Sprites use their powers to make things colorful, Bleak instead uses her powers to erase color. Her toy can, too, and is the only one with this ability.
- Curtains Match the Window - Averted by Astra and Prisma, played straight by Meadow, Brooke, and Bleak.
- The Cutie - Prisma
- Dark Is Not Evil - Bleak
- Deadpan Snarker - Bleak
- Descriptive Ville - Lite-Topia
- The Ditz - Astra
- Dreaming of Things to Come - Prisma dreams that the sprites found special wands, which led to them finding them for real.
- Earthquakes Cause Fissures - Inverted.
- Earworm - The theme song
- Hair Decorations - All of the Sprites have something in their hair. Prisma has a crown-like flower, Astra has blue scrunchies, Meadow has a headband with a little flower, Bleak has leaves tucked into her hair like a mantilla, and Brooke has (very hard to spot) hair elastics in the shape of flowers.
- Five-Man Band:
- Funny Background Event - Throughout the first half of the special, a butterfly tries to steal the girls' marshmallows.
- Generic Cuteness
- Genki Girl - Meadow
- Grumpy Bear - Bleak
- Flashback - Half the special
- Girlish Pigtails - Astra and Brooke
- The Hyena - Meadow
- Informed Attribute - Lite-Topia was not very colorful before the girls got their light wands, but it looks like no one told the animators, as shots of Lite-Topia before and after are exactly the same.
- Jerk with a Heart of Gold - Bleak
- Multicolored Hair - All the sprites have white hair with colored streaks. Bleak's however, are gray.
- Odd Name Out - Bleak, when compared to names like Brooke, Meadow, Prisma and Astra.
- Painting the Frost on Windows- Each of the sprites is responsible for bringing color to a particular part of Lite-Topia, except for Prisma, who is in charge of color in general, and Bleak, who steals color.
- "Rashomon"-Style - Meadow and Bleak have different accounts of how successful Meadow's joke was.
- Slumber Party - The sprites hold one to keep Astra awake.
- Tomboy - Brooke
- Unreliable Expositor - During a flashback, Meadow claims a joke she told caused everyone else to laugh uproariously. In Bleak's version of the story, the same joke fell totally flat.
- Youthful Freckles - Astra
