With a pair of microprojector earrings and the words "showtime Synergy", Jerrica Benton's holographic computer transforms her into the "truly outrageous" Jem, the pink-haired singer of the band The Holograms.

In the 80's, Jem was the flagship of the world's largest toy company, Hasbro. In front of their toylines Transformers, G.I. Joe, and My Little Pony.

And the musical animated series made Jem the biggest female cartoon star of the 80's! And probably the most genuine one, since Jem was one of very few cartoons that was predominantly written by female writers. Infact, at times Jem beat all male-oriented cartoon shows in viewer ratings.

Jem clearly made a mark in the doll industry. Many brands have since been inspired and also successful with similar ingredients. But Jem is her name, and no one else is the same!

Ever since the 80's, Jem has gathered a following of fans across the world, and new official Jem products are currently being released. The 40 Year Anniversary of Jem in 2025 is approaching, and we want even more of Jem!!!

This fansite was started in 1997, as a tribute to everything Jem, and to the people and companies that made it all happen. Here you can find in depth guides to the cartoon, reviews of the collectibles, behind the scenes material, and other informative features. And be sure to check back for updates about it all.
