Truly, Truly, Truly Outrageous!
Thank You, Cartoons of the 1980’s. My personal favorite… JEM and the Holograms, airing 7a.m. weekday mornings on WCIX-Ch. (circa 1987). This truly outrageous little ditty is a time capsule of childhood. Thank You, Britta Phillips!
- Jem was the #1 rated cartoon show Nov. 1986 (Nielsen).
2.) G.I. Joe, 3.) Smurfs, 4.) Transformers, 5.)Thundercats
- Jem made over $50 Million her first year.
- The Jem theme went Triple Platunum by Aug. 1987 – over 3,000,000 dolls sold which included the theme song.
- By Sept. 1988 over 5,000,000 dolls were sold.
Jerrica Benton, owner of Starlight Music would turn into Jem, lead singer of the Holograms with the help of holographic earrings. With suddenly pink hair, the blonde music executive would defeat the evil Misfits through the magic of music!
