The Stingers Hit Town (Part 1) is the first episode of the third season, and the 54th episode overall, of the Jem animated series.


Eric Raymond gets fed up with The Misfits' childish behavior, so he sells everything he owns to buy Misfits Music from Harvey Gabor. However, he decides to offer a recording contract to a new band called The Stingers. He offers to let them stay at the Gabor Mansion and when Pizzazz meets him she falls in love with him madly. However The Misfits are deeply concerned about the way Riot and his bandmates take advantage of her and think she needs to snap out of her infatuation and start acting like a Misfit again. Jerrica also discovers The Stingers and decides to offer them a recording contract but the lead singer Riot tells her that only Jem can make him join Starlight Music.
