Commentary on a Saturday Morning classic
14 May 2002 | by raysondSee all my reviews

The Jackson 5ive.........Marlon, Micheal, Tito, Randy, Jermaine.

I'm surprised that this isn't out on video,but it was a gem of a Saturday Morning classic cartoon that was on ABC-TV during the early 1970's. This Rankin-Bass/Motown production showcased the brothers at their prime even though some of the episodes were a bit cheesy,but they were fun and enjoyable. Before the end of the show,the brothers would go on to sing several of the songs with a bit of psychedelic format added in(the songs today are standard classics like "I'll Be There","Sugar Daddy","The Love You Save Maybe Your Own"),and so many more. One episode in particular shows how the brothers were discovered by Diana Ross and were brought to Motown by founder Berry Gordy.

I'm surprised that it is not on any cable channel. The last time I saw it was during TV Land's retro Saturday(which showed countless lost cartoons from the early 60's,70's,and 80's),and further back years ago on BET.
