Here's hoping that's how things go if we go anywhere near a school - otherwise, some of that good will building up towards this show will likely vanish... Sorry.
Yeah, I understand. Can't hold things to our expectations.
Wikipedia gave me this little bit of sadness:
So... This wasn't intended to be a ongoing series? What were the people who made this actually trying to accomplish?
To accomplish making something slightly longer than that other cartoon I linked on the first page that appears to have been taken down!
You can still find unofficial uploads of "Return to Rainbow Land" and "Trouble in Rainbow Land" on Youtube right now, though.
I did some quick research to find out that their facebook page said "season" finale. It means they are planning more episodes to my relief.
Someone in the comments said "test season".
Well, expect more Rainbow and co. Later next year!
I hope you're right - this show needs to keep going to prove itself to the new generation... It deserves to, IMHO.
Same here. It seems they're trying to make this a epic rather than the tropes MLP has used when it's not season opener and finale.
I hope they keep worldbuilding in future episodes. Explaining the way each color kid is utilized.
I'm sure we all agree that those color kids desperately nee some strong development for this show to truly come together and mean something, besides the other factors being able to keep up.
Of all the 80s properties I feel so bad for Rainbow Brite. She only got 13 episodes and a movie and her reboot was 3 mini-episodes long. Meanwhile the Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake, My Little Pony, and everyone else are doing well. Poor Rainbow.
All her DVDs are out of print, too :(

Shit. And I was kind of thinking this would become so talked about online, they would finally create a full new series.
At least she did better than poor Lady Lovely Locks, who never got a movie or region 1 releases at all.
You can tell she failed because I don't know who the Hell that is.
I might have seen that in the related videos sidebar of Youtube once!
On the plus side, Rainbow Brite toys have made a comeback :)
I wasn't sure who currently owned the rights to the Rainbow Brite cartoon, but I finally ended up asking Hallmark on Twitter, who made/makes the toys.
Me: @Hallmark Since you brought back Rainbow Brite toys, is there any chance that the cartoon and movie from the 80s could get rereleased?
Hallmark: Not at the moment, but tune in to @FEELN & http://www.rainbowbrite.com/ for new Rainbow Brite episodes. -ke

I'm surprised that this didn't become a show to be honest. I take it that it didn't do well enough to greenlight a show?
Well, the fact that there wasn't even much of a promotional push for it, and the fact that this was a Feeln exclusive, which you had to pay to watch, it seemed like a doomed concept. Well, at least this can inspire new fanart, and I think 'Star Vs.' is doing Rainbow's job real well.
Huh, the movie had a comic adaptation.
Heh, I liked that one Youtube comment, "Man Star Vs The Forces of Evil sure did have an awkward preteen stage."
And I'm still sticking to the theory that the latest mini-series was really just another 40-minute direct-to-video movie which they broke into three pieces at the last minute to try to snag some more cred with a "series".
There's a Rainbow Brite comic book that just came out and it looks really good! Hopefully it lasts more than a few issues.

I agree.Rainbow Bright deserves another reboot. And it looks like it's taking the Jem route this time.
Finally, a good looking Rainbow Brite reboot. I've been waiting for one since I became a fan. Comics seem to be getting all the good reboots lately.
I wouldn't really call it a reboot, more of a reimagining of the 80s series.
