Rainbow Brite - 'The Complete Series' of the 1984 Show is Now Available!
2-DVD sets with all 13 episodes are in stock at Hallmark's online store

So, we don't know how long it's been available, and we don't know for sure that this is an item exclusive to Hallmark stores or their Hallmark.com site, but a reader pointed out to us that Hallmark is carrying Rainbow Brite - The Complete Series on DVD! The franchise is owned by Hallmark, and from 1984 to 1986 they commissioned DiC Entertainment to produce 13 episodes of the animated show. During that time, a full-length animated theatrical film (Rainbow Brite and the Star Stealer) came out as well.
All 13 episodes of the show are available as a 2-DVD set, Rainbow Brite - The Complete Series, for just $9.95 from Hallmark.com's listing for the title. Shipping takes about a week, roughly, depending on where you are. It's also said at the site to be available in stores (but apparently a significant number of Hallmark store locations don't sell DVDs at all...so your luck on this may vary).
Our thanks to reader Aaron Davies for the heads-up about this. If you're into this show, or a loved one is (my wife is a huge fan, for example!), then this is what you've been waiting for. Way back in 2004, we reported that a company called ToyPlay had put out some Rainbow Brite dolls, that each came with a DVD carrying one 20 minute episode of the show. That's the only way Brite had made it to disc in the past, but now you can get all 13 episodes in a 2-DVD collection. Enjoy!
