Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The mid-'80s disco revival resulted in a number of children's programs on both sides of the Atlantic. One of Britain's contributions to this trend was the six-week "musical drama" series Jangles. Aimed primarily at a preteen audience, the series was predicated on the notion that a schoolgirl was capable of running a disco club after school hours with the help of her hunky boyfriend. Maybe the premise was nonsensical, but who cared with all that music and all those flashing lights? Jangles originally aired in 1985.
