Favorite 80s Shows!

Thursday, July 28, 2011

I had total flashbacks today to my FAVORITE cartoon when I was younger...JEM!!! And of course I just HAD to have the dolls.
Truly Outrageous! 
These aren't mine, but how fabulously 80s!! 
Plot: The central "secret" of the series is that Jem, lead singer and frontwoman of the rock group Jem and The Holograms, is in fact the alter ego of Jerrica Benton, owner/manager of Starlight Music.[3] Jerrica adopts this persona with the help of a holographic computer, known as Synergy, which was built by Jerrica's father to be "the ultimate audio-visual entertainment synthesizer" and is bequeathed to Jerrica after his passing. Jerrica is then able to command Synergy to project "the Jem hologram" over herself by means of the remote micro projectors in her earrings, thus disguising her features and clothing and enabling her to assume the Jem persona. She does so to acquire money to support Starlight Music and the Starlight Foundation for Girls, a foster program founded by her late mother Jacqui Benton.

Wait...so there was a plot?!? I don't even remember that part! I just remember the big hair, FABULOUS outfits (leggings in all their glory!) and super independent/powerful female characters creating rock star history! 
Oh Jem, why did you have to go away after only 3 short years on the air. We will remember you always!! lol
