Hey, I also dictated Rainbow Brite fan fiction to my babysitter! I couldn't remember Murky and Lurky's names, so I just called them "the bad guy" and "the other one."
My babysitter was a great editor. She pointed out when I had called both bad guys "the other one." She also didn't say anything like "My Little Ponies are a totally different show!" when I decided they needed to show up. (To younger me, the only thing keeping Starlite from being a pony was that he was too tall and the star was on his forehead, not his butt.)
Bret and Leila forever!
I think this is what #gpoy is for. I led a Rainbow Brite LARP in my preschool class. I was Rainbow Brite, of course, and my best friend was Stormy, even though I could never remember Stormy's name and called her Thunder Baby instead.
I get this movie confused with Not Another Teen Movie and I forget which scenes are from the real one and which ones are from the parody.
OH MAN I LOVE THIS!!! Rainbow Brite was my favourite, I used to go to the video store and just get her videos, over and over and over.
Amazing. I used to get a Rainbow Brite tape every time we went to Blockbuster.
This is amazing. Whose idea was it to make a book? How do you still have this? So many questions, so much appreciation.
I love everything about this and also, I am having lots of fun imagining what Bret was like.
Was he like Bret McKenzie? This would be a great FOTC episode.
last time I had a stomach thing, I totally shit my pants. it's really the most undignified thing an adult human has to endure....
This was wonderful and it made me laugh so hard at my desk I started crying. I hope this was a long time ago and you're feeling better!
