The Beginning
Episode Synopsis
The very first Jem episode. Starts with Jerrica retelling the story of her group's meteoric rise to fame. After the death of Emmett Benton - chiefly a scientist but also the former head of Starlight Music- his daughters, Jerrica and Kimber have to find some means of support for themselves and Starlight House, a foster home for girls. A mysterious being introduces herself to the girls and their two friends, Aja & Shana, as Synergy, a super computer capable of creating & projecting fantastic audio and visual holograms through a pair of earrings, left to Jerrica by her late father. Aside from Synergy, the girls have been left enough gear to start a dozen rock groups.
At Starlight Music, Jerrica discovers her father's protégé, Eric Raymond has taken control and plans to market a bad-girl group called The Misfits. Jerrica wages a bet with Eric that she can make her band more successful than The Misfits. The winner gets Starlight Music, a movie contract & a mansion.
Cartoon wardrobe trivia:
Many of the outfits shown in the first five episodes (also known as the "Truly Outrageous movie" or the Super Saturday/Super Sunday 7 minute clips) were fashions that were produced by Hasbro, such as the original outfits the dolls were sold with, Flip Side Fashions, On Stage Fashions, Smashin' Fashions, as well the Rockin' Roadster makes an appearance or two ;) The instruments have very little resemblance to those packaged with the dolls; indeed Shana, who is the drummer on the cartoon for the first 27 or so episodes, has only ever been sold with a guitar.
Some of these first five episode cartoon fashions - most obviously Jerrica and Roxy's fashions - were altered for later episodes, possibly due to a studio change.
Aja Original Outfit
First appears in The Beginning and again in: Disaster, Kimber's Rebellion, Frame Up, Battle of the Bands.
After this point the outfit changes slightly - the top becomes more form-fitting with a slightly puckered neckline, the skirt loses the snakeskin pattern, and the sandals become pumps: Starbright Part 1: Falling Star, Starbright Part 2: Colliding Stars, Starbright Part 3: Rising Star, The World Hunger Shindig, Adventure in China, The Music Awards Part 1, Broadway Magic, In Search of the Stolen Album, The Princess and the Singer, The Jem Jam Part 1, Culture Clash, The Talent Search Part 1, Scandal, The Treasure Hunt, The Day the Music Died.
Model sheet number A-1. Has also been referred to as A-20.
Hasbro produced this doll & fashion. The cartoon looks quite bland compared to the produced toy. I guess it would be difficult to make it look all glittery and sparkly.

Shana Original Outfit
First appears in The Beginning and again in: Disaster, Kimber's Rebellion, Frame Up, Battle of the Bands.
After this point the outfit changes slightly (the sandals become pumps, most notably) and is seen in the following episodes: Starbright Part 1: Falling Star, Starbright Part 2: Colliding Stars, Starbright Part 3: Rising Star, The World Hunger Shindig, Adventure in China, The Music Awards Part 1, Broadway Magic, In Search of the Stolen Album, The Princess and the Singer, The Jem Jam Part 1, Culture Clash, The Talent Search Part 1, Scandal, The Treasure Hunt, The Day the Music Died.
Model sheet number Unknown. Probably SH-1
Hasbro produced this doll & fashion. Looks pretty much like the doll, missing the hairbow; the cartoon shoes are white sandals, not lavender pumps. She is also shown with earrings which the doll did not have. The make up scheme is completely different and the doll generally doesn't have football-shaped hair either ;)

Kimber Original Outfit
First appears in The Beginning and again in: Disaster, Kimber's Rebellion, Frame Up, Battle of the Bands
After this point the outfit changes slightly (the sandals become pumps, most notably) and is seen in the following episodes: Starbright Part 1: Falling Star, Starbright Part 2: Colliding Stars, Starbright Part 3: Rising Star, The World Hunger Shindig, Adventure in China, The Music Awards Part 1, Broadway Magic, In Search of the Stolen Album, The Princess and the Singer, The Jem Jam Part 1, Culture Clash, The Talent Search Part 1, Scandal, The Bands Break Up, The Treasure Hunt, The Day the Music Died.
Model sheet number K-1
Hasbro produced this doll & fashion. Her outfit is pretty faithful to the doll's, the lapels being the main difference, as well as the shoes -they seem to be slides in the first five episodes of the cartoon.

Additional Trivia
  • This fashion with a salon cape is a separate cel model number (K-10. Thanks to Shevona for sharing!
  • Looks like Kimber also moonlighted on Transformers! Thanks to Matthew Karpowich for sending it along!

Jem Original Outfit
First appears in The Beginning and again in: Disaster, Kimber's Rebellion, Frame Up, Battle of the Bands.
At which point it is replaced by a more faithful reproduction of the doll's outfit.
Model sheet number J-1
Hasbro produced this doll & fashion. The first Jem fashion shows a dark pink belt and red bracelet, otherwise it's fairly faithful to the produced doll. The hair is always shown completely cotton candy pink on the cartoon, the real doll was mostly blonde with a small section of pale pink hair. The eye make up is also a lot less extreme on the doll. The 1st edition doll's earrings were usually plain red bulbs, though some had star-shaped clear caps over them. The doll comes with tights.

Trivia
  • Barring Roxy's outfit, this is probably the least like the outfit that made it into doll form. Pink and blue instead of white and blue, much larger stripes, a hot pink sash and shoes, and the hat has a funny white "V" shaped thing on it. 
  • Back to School for Jerrica, on Transformers! Thanks to Matthew Karpowich for sending along the model sheet reuse!
