Jem (also Jem and the Holograms) is an American animated television series that ran from 1985 to 1988 in U.S. first-run syndication. The show is about music company owner Jerrica Benton, her singer alter-ego, Jem, her band the Holograms, and their adventures.
The series was a joint collaboration by Hasbro, Marvel Comics, and Sunbow Productions, the same team responsible for G.I. Joe and Transformers. The creator of the series was Christy Marx, who also had been a staff writer for the aforementioned programs. The animation was provided by a Japanese animation studio called Toei Doga (now Toei Animation).
The show was originally designed to appeal to both girls and boys, with a mix of action/adventure, drama, music, and fashion, however as the show progressed, the audience became almost entirely girls.Jem Episodes
