Rainbow Brite Bloodbath

Finish her! An epic battle between Rainbow Brite and Strawberry Shortcake as two '80s cartoon-cum-greeting card icons duel to the death. Pop artist Jude Buffum painted the pixelated pair as embroidery for the The Autumn Society's '80s pop show. Be sure to take a gander at all the entries, including Jeff's Care Bear Carnage.

What's with the 1980s? First we went through a massival revival of the music, now the toys and TV shows appear to be having a resurgence. Or am I only noticing because I'm of a certain age? (Link via The Daily What)

  1. It sort of reminds me of a particular Robot Chicken sketch involving Rainbow Brite going Patrick Batemen on a couple of the villains from that series.

  2. I always thought Rainbow Brite was a psychopath....

  3. I loved that skit. I'd post it but the Cartoon Network has purged it from the web, except for their official site, which they are only streaming in the U.S. Which is the only place Robot Chicken airs, right? Sigh.
