  • : Why a 1980’s record label needs the ultimate holographic computer is beyond us, but you have to hand it Hasbro who figured out that nobody would care as long as they had catchy pop songs, decent female role models and dolls to sell. Jem and the Holograms was a successful animated series that created 65 episodes and remains in the conscious of women who grew up in that era. An induction for this entry is a lot more likely than you might think.
