In this episode, we learn of Moonglow and
her job as beautifier of the night. She and her Sprite, Nite Sprite,
have the responsibility of making the moon and stars shine britely
at night and make people happy even when they can't see brite colors
:) Moonglow and Nite Sprite have the power to turn invisible when
they're working hard.
Rainbow and friends love looking at
Moonglow's handywork and really appreciate the beautiful night skies.
Unfortunately, Murky and Lurky don't
enjoy the gorgeous nights. They prefer everything to be dark and
gloomy. And they come up with a plan to capture Moonglow and take
away her power so that the nights will never be beautiful again!
Murky sprays Moonglow with his awful
gloom cloud and is able to capture her. She turns invisible to try
and trick him, but he just sprays her with the cloud again. They
didn't take Nite Sprite with them, but he did get shot with the
gloom cloud and it knocked him out.
Later on that night, Rainbow and the
Color Kids begin to notice that the stars aren't coming out. They
know something must be wrong, because Moonglow would never let a
night slide by without sprinkling the sky with beautiful stars!
It is also noticeable on Earth.
And so Rainbow and the Color Kids set
out to find Moonglow. They find Nite Sprite and wake him up. He tells
them how Murky and Lurky had sprayed her with their gloom cloud and
taken her with them with the plan of taking away her power! So
Rainbow and Starlite set out to make sure that doesn't happen. They
head straight for the Pits.
They have to walk down a narrow, winding
path in search of their friend. Inside Murky's castle, they had tied
Moonglow to a chair and were shining a bright light on her attempting
to drain her of her power. The initial light wasn't strong enough,
so they put two more powerful lights on her that were extremely
The light was so bright that Rainbow and
Starlite could see it from far away! They could tell what Murky was
up to and they knew they must hurry if they were going to save
Murky and Lurky see Rainbow and Starlite
coming, so they put Moonglow (and the awful lights) on a cart and
wheel her outside through a tunnel in the back of the castle. They
but a gag over Moonglow's mouth so she can't speak. Then they get to
work on putting sticks over the entrance to the tunnel (the deepest
tunnel in the Pits!) in hopes that Rainbow will step on them and
fall into the tunnel!
Murky and Lurky hide in the bushes as
Rainbow and Starlite slowly walk towards Moonglow. Moonglow can't
speak to warn Rainbow of the pending danger, but she tells Rainbow
by squealing and imploring with her eyes. Rainbow knows something is
wrong so she cautiously walks towards Moonglow only walking forward
when Moonglow 'tells' her it is safe.
From the bushes, Murky sees that Rainbow
isn't going to fall in as he'd hoped, so he runs and pushes her into
the pit! Luckily, Starlite is there and catches her by the back of
Murky loses his balance in fear and
falls into the pit himself! And Lurky, never wanting to leave
Murky's side, jumps right in after him! Rainbow frees Moonglow from
her imprisonment, and she disappears, going straight to work to make
the dull night sky beautiful again.
She makes the sky more beautiful than
ever before - on Earth...
And in Rainbow Land :)
