Jerrica Benton is the owner of Starlight Music and the Starlight Foundation, which is a foster home for young girls. But by using her earrings to project a holographic image over herself, she is transformed into her alter ego Jem, the lead singer for the successful music group, Jem and the Holograms. Other members of the group are Jerrica's sensitive little sister Kimber, the strong-willed Aja, and the creative Shana. The group's rivals are The Misfits, made up of the cold-hearted Pizzazz, the tough-acting Roxy, and the humble Stormer. Jem and her friends are always involved in glamorous and exciting adventures around the world, while touching people's hearts with their hit songs.Written by

In the episode "In search of the stolen album", Jem and the Holograms get a ransom note. The first line quite obviously reads "In search of good times," but the girls read out loud and then repeat "In search of good tunes." See more »
This great 1980's Toon has a huge, growing fandom on-line, and it's easy to see why :) With it's music intense format, and genuinely interesting characters, it's a delight to watch. If you like animation and music together, you will probably like JEM! If you are a big 80's buff, this cartoon is rife with 80's talk and culture. The simple premise of an all girl Rock Band, it's leader the mysterious Jem and her secret identity, will be fun for all ages. The original "Girl Power" band, long before the Spice Girls :)
If you remember it, give it another look and relive the magic. If you've never seen it, track it down and give it a look-see.
That's my opinion >^&^<
