JEM and The Holograms - Shout! Sets a Show Date, Ticket Prices and More for Complete Series DVDs


11-disc set with every episode and new extras will be available in October, along with a separate Season 1 set!

    Jem and the Holograms, the animated TV series that ran from '85 to '88 in U.S. first-run syndication to millions of young viewers, revolves around music company owner Jerrica and her glamorous pop singer alter-ego, Jem. Jerrica is able to transform into Jem with the help of a unique computer system that can create realistic holograms of virtually anything. By her side are her band members The Holograms, who sing their way through many worldwide adventures while rival bands (such as The Misfits) try to steal their spotlight!
This past March we had the heads-up from show creator Christy Marx herself that Jem! and The Holograms would return to DVD in 2011 thanks to the folks at Shout! Factory. Now, just ahead of the San Diego Comic Con next week, retailers have been informed that October 11th is the street date for TWO different releases of the classic animated show that was produced by the people behind such legendary programs as The Transformers and G.I. Joe. Here's the tune Shout! is singing:

Jem! and The Holograms - The Truly Outrageous Complete Series! is an 11-DVD set with all 65 episodes of the show. When Rhino Video first put the program out in 2004, they never completed the releases and so many episodes from the third and final season have never come to DVD. Now Shout! makes certain you can get EVERYTHING AT ONCE with this collectible package (see cover art below) that includes a mylar-foil-board slipcase! Also on board are Brand-new Interviews with the Creator, Cast, Crew and Fans, plus Song and Art Galleries. In fact, one entire disc on this set is dedicated to just the extras! Cost for the title is $89.99 SRP, and it will be discounted from there at most retail stores and online sellers (such as Amazon.com).

If that's too much for you to get all at once, then instead consider purchasing the individual season sets of this series. Shout! Factory will start, of course, with Jem! and The Holograms - Season 1 on the same date as the Complete Series set (with the other seasons to be released individually later on; stay tuned for those dates!). The 4-disc package (see the front of the box, at bottom) will be available at participating stores and priced at an affordable $29.93 SRP (and discounted from there, naturally). If you grew up as a fan of this show, or want to share it with your own kids, then these are the truly outrageous releases you've been waiting for!
