I think we can call this now… the 1980s are our 1950s. Just like the baby boomers fueled a 50s nostalgia trip in the mid-80s, kids like me (pushing 40) are fueling an 80s nostalgia trip in the mid 10s. Checking the roster to see who all’s been called-up from the “decade of excess,” I see STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE, the CARE BEARS, MY LITTLE PONY, the TRANSFORMERS, G.I. JOE, and the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES just represented here in my office at Rock Father HQ. There’s certainly more, as I know that JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS, the MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE, VOLTRON and a few other properties are on-deck for “reboots” or “re-imaginings,” and THE POPPLES are coming to Netflix, but tonight we have news on another: RAINBOW BRITE.

Oh yes, I remember Ms. Rainbow very well – the little Sprites she’d hang out with, the metallic outfit she wore as a toy… we’ve even got an early 2000’s depiction of Rainbow and her horse, Starlite, as a Hallmark Keepsake Ornament that graces our Christmas tree each winter. On November 6, VOD network Feeln will bring a new generation into Rainbow Land through an all-new series featuring the voices of Emily Osment and Molly Ringwald. Check out a preview…

Stay tuned…
