About the DVD Set
JEM and The Holograms: Season One 4-DVD Set will be available to own on the same day!

America’s best-loved and truly outrageous animated pop star was Jem from the memorable 80’s pop culture series JEM and The Holograms. Best known for her iconic pink hair, star shape earrings, rousing musical numbers and trend setting fashion, Jem knew how to rock her glamour, glitter, fashion and fame and influenced a generation of viewers who grew up watching this animated series.

On October 11, 2011, Shout! Factory, in collaboration with Hasbro Inc., will release the long-awaited JEM and The Holograms: The Truly Outrageous Complete Series! 11-DVD box set, sparkling with all the episodes in the order they were intended and an exclusive extra DVD packed with bonus features, including archival material rarely seen by fans! Poised to present a hard-to-refuse offer for loyal fans, this uncompromising 11-DVD box set is collected in a specially designed box and will be made available in stores nationwide. Also available to own on the same day is the single season DVD debut of JEM and The Holograms: Season One in a 4-DVD box set.

The series “JEM and The Holograms” ran from 1985-’88 in first-run syndication and still boasts a loyal and vocal fan base. It is frequently credited with influencing fashion in the late 1980s and beyond, and launching the careers of female pop-rock stars and music groups. The series follows Jerrica Benton, whose discovery of Synergy, a powerful computer companion, allows her to transform from co-owner of Starlight Music into rock star Jem. Teaming with her sister and best friends who form The Holograms, Jem sets out to make their musical dreams come true, even as she battles against the ruthless Eric Raymond and his musical protégés.

My Take on the DVD Set
Growing up in the 80's I remember Jem too well... not that I watched it a lot but the theme song is emblazoned in my mind. I was shocked this year to find that the new Cable station, The HUB was carrying the show and that my girls loved the show. When I saw that the box set of the series was coming out, I was excited to be able to share this with my own daughters and I knew that they would love it. In receiving the set, my girls were ecstatic and they wanted to watch it right away. We actually had to limit the amount of time that they were watching the show as they wanted to keep watching every episode. I can tell that this box set will be one that will continue to keep my girls singing, dancing and having fun for a long time to come.
