This week, we revisit Jem! Jem and the Holograms was a hit Saturday Morning Cartoon that ran from 1985-1988. It rose to the top of the Nielsen Ratings its first two years, and then dropped down into relative obscurity. We talk about the show's strong cult following, original songs, toy tie-ins, and the 2015 reboot film.
You can watch the original HERE ON TUBI and you can watch the reboot film HERE ON NETFLIX.
Jem was also a popular doll, and you can read all about the history of the doll HERE on the "Totally Jem!" Fansite.
Before digging into Jem, we try a Hershey's Symphony bar. Launched in 1989, this candy bar was create to appeal to wealthier and European customers. You can buy a whole box of Symphony Bars HERE on Amazon. And you can watch the vintage commercial below!
Did we love it? Did we hate it? Were the songs from Jem bops or flops? The intro to the show is below, but for the rest, you can check out the podcast to hear our take!
