Good rebus. Enjoyed this one as it made me think of the Wizard of Oz and all those cute little munchkins! Oh, and Toto, too!

I got it! Probably cuz I was just in our Drama 2 class's version of Wizard of Oz! (we did some really cheesy stuff for that song; we even had a paper rainbow that two girls danced around w/!)
I LOVE the WOZ! Keep em' comin!

I couldn't figure what the +'s were supposed to mean. That was a good teaser though.

Kay, got the answer as SOON as I saw ROYGBIV... but I couldn't figure out how that could be the answer with all the plus signs... Very nice teaser! Thanks
phyllisa*us*
Aug 12, 2008

ROYGBIV gave it away. I didn't get the "+" signs, but a GREAT REBUS!!!!

I love rebuses, or rebi. This was a good 1. Added to favorites. Keep 'em coming!

The 'W+H+E+R+E' part doesn't make sense (... to me).
The ROYGBIV part was easier.
Overall, 50/50.
FatHeadAus*
Aug 16, 2008

Like a previous poster said, the ROYGBIV part gave it away - those are the colors of the rainbow! The plus-signs only confirmed I was right!

How Oz, that wizardly teaser.

Rebuses aren't my thing - and I didn't have a clue about this one. I won't forget what ROYBGIV represents next time I see it!
I do love the song, though!

It's W plus H plus E plus R plus E, or SUM WHERE...

Aug 12, 2011

AROB and I was still out in left field, actually I wasn't even in the ballpark. Hi GiMi
wordmama*
Aug 12, 2011

I almost never get rebuses, but a song title with rainbow in it, confirmed by 'where', kinda SUMmed it all up for me!!

Bravo, Wordmama! Greetings to KiPA!

Good one, but I still didn't get it.
Hi Gayle & doehead.
craniacAus*
Aug 12, 2011

I just don't come across that mnemonic device for remembering in what order the colors in the rainbow come, to know what it is every time I see it. For instance, I most recently saw it in 2008 when this teaser last ran, and since I have no compelling reason to want or need to commit it to memory, it doesn't stay in my brain. In other words, I didn't have a clue.

Clever and fun. Thank you for this rebus.

I could have worked all night on it and never figured it out. How many people know that is about the colors in a rainbow?? Not me. Glad there are some smarties out there!

Though I am sure many are familiar with the song, I think knowing what ROYGBIV means may be an age related thing. I am in my early 40s and we learned it at school, while my mother had never heard of it until her children were in school.
I knew what the answer was, but didn't figure out where the somewhere was coming from.

No clue whatsoever
BadBunnee02*us*

Typical range of responses to a GREAT Rebus:

"not a clue"

"ez-pz"

That's because the writing and solving of Rebuses require such a wide range of language knowledge, experience, AND (most important) ....

the "intuitive leap"

... without the ability to do the "leap" ...

one is sunk.

But don't fret. Not everyone on these threads can be a Rebus Genius.

Maybe you do well at other Braingle puzzle categories ???

Stay with what you do best.

Funny because some friends and I were just talking about ROYGBIV last night. Letters stand for: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.
