Best Kiddie Show of the 80sRating: 0 likes, 1 dislikes

During the first time I saw this smashing hit TV show “JEM” at re-reruns, I became addicted to it. Kids during this generation should be able to watch a kiddie show like this! It was one of the more trusted kiddie show that you’ll surely love your kids to watch! This show had it all - adventure, romance, action and most importantly, music videos you can sing along too! I’m so glad I found a DVD copy of this show at http://www.dvdbooth.com/Cartoon/JEM_THE_COMPLETE_DVD_COLLECTION/ and thankfully, this seller did a great job. The DVDs I received are of good quality. Additionally, it has all the complete episodes! Now, I can just sit and relax while watching my all-time fave show with my kids !For those parents who wanted to let their children watch this one-of-a-kind show, you should buy this DVD set and for sure your kids will love it!
