Rainbow Brite has her work cut out for her in STAR SPRINKLED. An intergalactic con-man tricks the Sprites into signing over the deed to the Color Cave, cutting off the supply of Color Crystals. Only Rainbow Brite can stop this evil-doer from keeping color from the world forever.
Full Summary: Star Sprinkled
Rainbow Brite chases down a flock of birds, to make them colorful, and back in Rainbow Land the Sprites create more sprinkles. Twink studiously makes sure things are done.
Murky attempts to contaminate the Star Sprinkle machine, but fails.
When the Sprites go back to the caves they notices a strange electronic carriage has parked outside. Outside comes a very boisterous man named Plock, who explains he can help the Sprites by giving them seeds which will grow Color Crystals, and they won't have to mine again!
He tells Twink this and shows him a demonstration. If he can sign over the deed to the cave, he will give him the seeds. Twink does, but when he attempts to show Rainbow Brite the trick, it doesn't work.
Rainbow Brite goes back to the cave to demand Plock give it back, but he has set up shop. He is using it like a tourist attraction and she demands he leave, he refuses insisting it is legal and they should leave, and he closes the Color Cave.
When Rainbow Brite and the other kids leave, Murky and Lurky confront Plock with the basket, insisting they do not work. Plock replies that they will work in a few years. Murky isn't convinced. He says he wants the cave to turn it into a Gloom Cave.
Plock realizes what he wants to do and refuses. He tries to stop Murky, but Murky murk's him with a gloom cloud. Rainbow fights back, and rescues Plock, and sends Murky and Lurky down the color carts.
Rainbow Explains she couldn't let Murky destroy the Color Cave even if it wasn't theirs anymore. Plock tears up his contact and says the Color Cave is theirs. As long as there were people like Murky around they needed Rainbow Brite.
Plock leaves Rainbow Land for another land of opportunity, and warns then not to be fooled again.
So back to work the Sprites go, making more Color Crystals and getting back to normal.
