Rainbow Brite Saves Halloween a fan fiction written by Katy Cartee Haile Brian awoke early on Halloween morning. He wanted to finish his paper route as quickly as possible so that he could put the finishing touches on his Halloween costume. He was dressing as his favorite, and sometimes not-so-favorite, villain, Murky Dismal. He knew that none of his friends would recognize this gloomy character, but he didn’t care. He laughed to himself every time he pictured the real Murky Dismal seeing someone else dressed in his clothes! But as dawn began to brighten the streets and houses on his route, he noticed something odd. The black and gray of Halloween decorations peppering the neighborhood looked as scary as ever. There were big black spiders guarding massive webs. There were spooky gravestones surrounded by skeletons. Translucent ghosts hung from trees. But something was missing. What was it? It took him only a moment to realize that it wasn’t an object that was missing, but a color! There was no orange!

Brian’s nearly-complete Murky Dismal costume lay on a chair nearby. He thought it might come in handy, so he hurriedly glued lightning bolts in their proper places, attached the cape, painted his face green and stuck on a fake mustache. Elsewhere in the town where Brian lived, the real Murky Dismal and his assistant, Lurky, were hiding behind some tall bushes. “I’m a genius!” shouted Murky, once his plan was complete. “These silly Earthlings put so much importance on color in their ridiculous holidays. Let’s see how they enjoy a gray Halloween! Hehe!” Back in Brian’s room, he was just about finished putting on his costume when he heard the sound of hooves coming from his closet. He opened the door just in time to see Rainbow Brite, Red Butler, Lala Orange and Canary Yellow hop off of Starlite’s back. “Murky!” cried Canary Yellow as she caught a glimpse of...
