Christy Marx probably wasn’t aware of what she was getting into when she created the hit TV show, Jem and the Holograms. Since its release in 1985 many people fell in love with Jerrica/Jem, including men. The show was so popular that it had its own doll line, at some point, the dolls were more popular than the Barbie doll itself. Of course, all this was 30 years ago. 30 years of Jem and the Holograms. The show ended in 1988, soon after the dolls were discontinued leaving the show with unreleased episodes and toys.
