Jem and The Holograms was a popular Saturday-morning animated series. Aired from 1985 to 1988, the show featured the singer Jem and her band The Holograms. Jem's real name is Jerrica Benton. Jerrica maintains her Jem persona with the help of Synergy, a holographic computer designed to be the ultimate audio-visual entertainment synthesizer. Jerrica commands Synergy to project her Jem hologram via microprocessors in her earrings. In 65 episodes, Jem and her pals Kimber, Aja, and Shana face off against rival bands, The Misfits and The Singers; try to keep Jem's two identities secret and separate; protect Synergy from villains who would hope to exploit it; and support the Starlight Girls, the 12 foster children who live with Jem and her band members. Each episode includes music videos of original tunes. Riding the popularity of MTV and its 24-7 visualization of popular music, the Jem TV series was the third most watched children's show in 1987.
