Hallmark mascot Rainbow Brite is another character given a cartoon that was primarily aimed at girls in the 80s. The plot inevitably revolves around bringing colour and light to a dark world, or fighting a monochrome villain who hates happiness or whatever. We couldn't tell you, we were barely paying attention.

If the reboot gains a lot of adult male fans, I think they should be called "Rain-Bros."

Allsorts is an awful cut-price Rainbow wannabe, except instead of puppets there are simple men, and instead of a bear there's a human-dog hybrid straight out of your nightmares.

Snooker-based gameshow fun as we delve into the highlight of Jim Davidson's career, watching snooker players "pot as many balls as they can" at the behest of hairy trick shot wizard John Virgo.

It's like Bullseye, but balls.
