Remember the evil queen from Rainbow
Brite and the Star Stealer? Well in this episode, Queen of the
Sprites, she's back! And she still holds a grudge towards Rainbow
Brite for taking away her powers. The story begins one night while
everyone in Rainbow Land is asleep. Puppy Brite hears a noise and
barks to wake up Rainbow Brite, but Rainbow doesn't see anything, so
she assumes he just had a bad dream and goes back to sleep. What she
doesn't know, is that a ship just flew overhead carrying the evil
Princess and Count Blogg!
The next morning, Rainbow and Starlite
take off on a mission to restore color to a star that turned gray
during the night. Twink loads her up with Star Sprinkles to restore
the star's color.
Twink takes the responsibility of
getting more Star Sprinkles for the Color Kids while she's away.
But when he reaches the Color Cave, he is not happy with the amount
of Color Crystals that the Sprites have mined.
They tell him that there aren't enough
crystals, so he tells them to go farther back in the cave to search
They reach a cave farther back and begin
to work. It takes them awhile to realize that they're being
They look up to see the Dark Princess
and Count Blogg looking down on them!
The Princess informs the Sprites that
she has come to their world in search of diamonds to give her her
power back. She tells them to start digging, but they resist. She
then makes up the story that she is the "Queen of the Sprites" and
that they must obey her orders. They still will not comply, so Count
Blogg helps to change their mind. He catches one of the Sprites,
ties him up where none of the other Sprites can see him, and brings
out a frog, claiming that he turned the Sprite into a frog. He tells
them that the same fate will fall on all of them if they choose not
to mine the diamonds.
The Sprites got to work mining diamonds,
but while they were doing that, they weren't gathering any Color
Crystals for the Color Kids! The Color Console was starting to run
low, and the colors around Rainbow Land were fading fast!
Murky and Lurky noticed the faded colors
as well - except they were happy about it! They wondered what was
keeping the Sprites from getting more Color Crystals, so they headed
off towards the Color Caves to find out.
Meanwhile, Twink was on his way to the
Color Caves to find out what was taking the Sprites so long. He ran
to the back of the cave and was happy at first to see the Sprites
working so hard! But his happiness turned into anger when he looked
into their crates to see that they weren't mining Color Crystals at
all - but diamonds!
He demanded an explanation and the
Sprites started telling him about the awful Princess and Count Blogg
and how they had turned one of the Sprites into a frog! But they
didn't have time to finish their story before Count Blogg came over
and captured Twink! He tied Twink up with the other Sprite and told
the rest of the Sprites that Twink had been turned into a frog as
Right after this incident, Murky and
Lurky show up on the scene. Murky is surprised to see the Princess
there in Rainbow Land, but wants to help her if it'll get rid of
Rainbow Brite. The two are trying to hide out, but when Lurky hears
that the lady is a princess, he slides down a rock right beside them
and asks if he can wear her crown ;)
The Dark Princess and Count Blogg are
furious at being discovered. Then they remember the last time they
saw Murky and Lurky was during their last encounter with Rainbow
Brite. Murky and Lurky were supposedly going to help them capture
her, but they didn't come through. Count Blogg was just about to
throw the two into a nearby river when Murky told them that he could
lead them to Rainbow Brite. The Princess was ecstatic to find that
they had landed in Rainbow Land and that the "Rainbow Brat" was so
close by. They decided to hide out at Murky's "castle" while the
Princess regained her powers. Count Blogg stayed behind to keep an
eye on the Sprites.
As they headed to the Pits, Rainbow
Brite was headed back to the Color Castle. When she arrived, the
Color Kids informed her of the shortage of Color Crystals. They said
they hadn't seen Twink all afternoon and the color was fading!
So Rainbow and Starlite left for the
Color Caves to see if they could locate Twink. They called Twink's
name as they rode through the caves, but got no response. Count
Blogg heard them coming, so he grabbed Twink and ran off before they
got there. They went further back in the caves and saw the Sprites
working hard, but they wouldn't answer Rainbow's questions! They
could tell something wasn't right. Finally the Sprites realized that
Count Blogg was no longer there, so they explained what had happened
Rainbow and Starlite went to see what
had become of the two captured Sprites. The yellow one was still
there, so they untied him and he told them everything he knew. From
his description, Rainbow could tell that it was Count Blogg and the
Dark Princess who were causing this trouble. He also told them that
Count Blogg had taken Twink, so they ran off to find him!
Unfortunately, Count Blogg was already taking off for the Pits in
their spacecraft - with Twink!
Rainbow and Starlite went back to the
Color Castle to get the Color Kids' help. Meanwhile, in the Pits,
the Princess had constructed a diamond necklace for herself and was
testing out her newfound powers. She shot out what looked like
lightening from her fingertips and turned rocks into diamonds! The
Color Kids watched in horror!
But only a few seconds later, the
diamond rocks turned back into regular rocks! The Princess was
furious about these "cheap imitation diamonds" and demanded better
ones! Murky and Lurky told her they would go straight back to the
Color Cave and get her some more. Murky wanted to do all he could to
help get rid of Rainbow Brite! But Rainbow and the Color Kids
overheard their conversation and decided to outsmart them.
Rainbow and Starlite ran as fast as they
could to the Color Caves so they could get there before Murky and
Lurky did. They told the Sprites to put a bunch of Color Crystals
into the crates instead of diamonds and to give them to Murky and
Lurky when they got there. And so they did :)
Murky and Lurky brought the crates
straight to the Princess and she loved them! She had never seen such
beautiful "diamonds" before ;) She made a new necklace out of them
right away - still not knowing that they were Color Crystals. She
and Count Blogg hopped into their ship and took off for the Color
Castle. Murky and Lurky followed close behind so they would be there
to see the fight. And Twink freed himself while everyone was running
towards the Color Castle.
The Princess and Count Blogg land
directly in front of the Color Castle. Rainbow comes out to face her
opponent. The Princess starts shooting lightening bolts at her, but
Rainbow dodges each one. Rainbow takes off her Color Belt and uses
it to shoot out a rainbow that encompasses the Princess. It uses the
Color Crystals around her neck to make it even stronger! Count
Blogg tries to help her, but when he touches the rainbow it sends
him flying back to the ship. The Princess tries to break free, but
the same thing happens to her. Rainbow uses the rainbow to pick up
their ship and send it far away :) The Sprites run to congratulate
Rainbow and tell her that she's the only "Queen of the Sprites"
they'll ever have :)
