The music we are introduced to as children will forever hold a very special place in our hearts. For me, that music included an album called "Paint a Rainbow in Your Heart." Recorded as a companion to Hallmark's Rainbow BriteTM property, the album was a fun an fanciful journey through a world of sound painted with color and friendship.
Lately I've found myself in need of some color and happiness as earlier this month, I lost someone very close to me. In this person's absence I have found myself returning to the things that have brought me comfort over the years and one of the main sources of that comfort is Hallmark's Rainbow Brite property.
On November 15th, 1985 Hallmark Card's beloved character, Rainbow Brite, lit up the big-screen in her first feature-length film; Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer. Produced by DIC Entertainment the film was distributed by Warner Brothers and followed three very successful television specials that also helped promote a line of dolls by Mattel.
