Jem's real name is Jerrica Benton (nope, that's not a typo, it's Jerrica) and she's the owner of her own record label but when she's not being a pretty boss role model she's also wearing a pink wig and some crazy glam make-up as the lead-singer of her chart-topping band.
As a side note: I think they missed a trick by not spelling it The Missfits. I'm a sucker for puns.
Of course things are a lot more complicated than my description of the show. It was a cartoon from the late 80s, they're all mad as fuck. It ran for 3 seasons which is better than some of the other cartoons we've covered here so it had plenty of time to really get weird in those 65 episodes. There was orphans and futuristic technology and kidnappings... Katy Perry doesn't have to deal with that shit!
To be honest the premise of Jem is rife for use again today so I'm kinda shocked it has taken Hollywood this long to reboot it. I just hope they somehow keep this cracker of a tune...
