Shitty Kids

I saw this show once on TV when I was about five years old, and it always stayed with me. I have no idea what it was called or how I would even go about looking it up. I want to say it was some kind of 10-minute short or something. I don't even know how much of this is real or written into my memory by my own imagination.

Anyway, it was about these kids in school where apparently, it rained constantly. It was always dark and dreary and always raining. There was this one little girl in the class who the other kids picked on and they locked her into a room or something. I don't know if they pushed stuff in front of the door, or what. All I can remember is the little girl was stuck in there and it was dark. Then, suddenly, the rain stopped and the sun came out. The teacher let the kids outside, and they all ran out cheering, celebrating, playing around. There were rainbows, the sky turned blue, the sun was shining. I seem to remember flowers even blooming. Crazy shit. All caught up in their excitement, no one thought of the little girl locked in the dark room. While everyone else was outside playing in the sun having the time of their lives, the little girl was trapped inside, crying. I don't know how I knew, but this sun thing was a rare event at this school. Here, all it ever did was rain, and I somehow knew that it would end soon and not happen again for a really long time. So, my heart really hurt for this little girl.

At one point, a small sliver of sunlight came in through a crack in the room and she put her hand in it. That's it. That's all she got out of this super-rare sunny day while all the other little fuckers were outside playing. I can't remember anyone coming in and getting her out. In fact, I think that by the time she got out, it was over and raining again. I have no idea what the point of the story was, either. That kids are assholes, I guess. But to this day, when I think of it, I'm sad.

I wish I knew of some way to find out what it was that I watched and if there's some way to find it online. Maybe it didn't end as shitty as I remember. Maybe the little girl got to catch the last few minutes of the celebration. Or maybe she went all Carrie on their asses.
