Flashback Friday- TV Edition- 80’s Babies Remember-Faerie Tale Theatre (1982-1987) & Jem (1985-1988)

I’ve been feeling nostalgic lately about simpler times.

That bring me to the subject of this Flashback Friday Post.

Faerie Tale Theatre

Hosted by Shelley Duvall, this collection of fairy tales was and still is children’s television at it’s best. Containing high production values and acted by some of the best actors in Hollywood, Faerie Tale Theatre still holds up after 30 years. Unlike children’s programming then and now, there was no marketing or selling of merchandise. Just simple story telling that appealed to the entire family.


Jerrica Benton is the owner of a foster home for young girls. Jerrica is not what she seems. Her earrings, use a holograph transform her and her friends in Jem and the Holograms.

This was 80’s rock star chic for the elementary school set. Looking at it from adult eyes, it looks rather tacky, but back then, this was must see TV.

I feel very old now.

Happy Friday!
