I'm not sure the Blu-Ray is necessary but the fact that this set has both Blu-Ray and DVD is a great bonus.

I received this set directly from the publisher, and hoped that it would be as great as it was in my memory of 40 years ago. The Jacksons burned up the music charts when I was a tween and of course Michael owned the charts in the 80s. Every kid I knew watched the Jackson 5 cartoon on TV, and we sang their songs on the school bus.

I'm happy to say that this 2-DVD set is every bit as good as I remember. The colors are bold and the sound crystal clear. It's actually better than when it appeared on TV because of the improved sound and picture capability of today's technology. Add in the bonus of no TV commercials and you've got a perfect trip down memory lane. All 46 of the remastered songs sound great!

Yes, the story lines are sappy, but they were a product of their times and I like them much better than the TV shows full of sexuality and bad language targeted towards our kids today.

This collection will probably appeal most to children of the 70s or fans of the Jackson 5 and their music, but I'm happy that the old shows have been re-released on DVD format.

There really is nothing like a blast from the past and Classic Media has done it in style. I'm from the generation who actually looked forward to watching the Jackson 5ive on Saturday mornings. Mind you, we only had thirteen channels then and if you wanted to watch another one, you had to get up to change it. There was no such thing as a remote and cell phones ... well, that was something you'd see on the futuristic Star Trek series. The Jackson 5ive series was short, but very sweet, running from September 11, 1971 to October 14, 1972. It later resurfaced briefly during the 1980s.

The remastered songs and the film have definitely improved the series, but there's still that old laugh track that gives in that nostalgic, retro feel. I played the series on an old surround sound DVD player and the sound was awesome. Not quite like the old stereo sound, but the series is now ready for yet another generation to enjoy. The packaging is quite appealing, especially the discs which resemble 45 rpm records, which most of the songs ended up on in collections. Somehow the bright rainbow colors bring back the over-the-top vibrant feel the Jackson Five used to bring out in people.

If you're anxious to revisit the fictionalized lives of Titom Marlon, Jermaine, Jackie, and Michael Jackson along with a host of other "guest" stars, here are the episodes along with the songs included with each one:

As 6-7 year old black child growing up near Charleston SC in 1971-72, I have a special place in my heart for this cartoon. This show told us that it was okay to dream big and that we could live out whatever fanstasy we had about what we wanted to be when we grew up (of course I did not analyze it this way it the time, but it was deep in our subconscious in retrospect). For years fans of the show had to settle with , ahem..."unauthroized versions," but now the wait is over!

As for the content of the show, nostalgia and animation quality aside, its not as bad as some say. "It All Started With" (which had the dubious historical disctinction of airing Sept. 11, 1971, during the Attica riots and 30 years to the day before....) is the legendary PR tale that was widely believed at the time of Diana Ross discovering the J5. This is actually quite comical as the J5 con their way into the studio and the Berry Gordy caricature is amusing. "Cinderjackson" has Mike desiring to go out on a date with a "princess of pop" that eerily presages Whitney Houston (the afro-wearing "hairy godfather"-NOW HOOOOLD IT! is his catchprhase-is hilarious). "The Wizard of Soul" has the J5 in the land of Oz, which also predicts "The Wiz" by some seven years! "Groovatron," a funky soul-dancing robot, appeared some three years before the J5's "Dancing Machine" and the popular "robot" dance! "Rasho Jackson," as noted on another website, predicts the events that led to the actual breakup of the J5 a few decades later! The writers of this show were far more on the ball than anyone realized at the time.

One fascinating episode, "Ray & Charles Superstars" features the J5's pet mice Ray & Charles (clever, eh?

Format: DVD
I welcomed the opportunity to preview this set of Jackson Five animated stories from over forty years ago. Hard to believe it's been that long. Despite the age of the animations, the sound, color, and clarity of the picture are first rate. I was impressed by the vividness of the colors and the richness while watching the animations on both my laptop and our HD television.

Most of the plots are timeless. The boys are confronted with a problem or a villain and figure out a way to solve the problem or defeat the nemesis. In each episode two songs are integrated into the plot seamlessly and impressively. The style of the animation at times reminds me of Rocky and Bullwinkle with amplified color or the Beatles' Rubber Submarine movie. Many of the themes are still topical today like destruction of trees and natural environments and kindness to animals.

The 70s styles and expressions were nostalgic for me as were the songs and the language. It's been many a year since I've heard phrases like: I'm hip, Let's slide, Right on, Can you dig it, Cool cats, Funky, Swinging, and Ready to jive. It was also amusing to see one of the characters playing music on a reel to reel tape player. I think even young viewers will get a kick our of the language and the ever present bell bottoms, tie dyed shirts, and puffy Afro hairstyles.

This Potato Head thinks that the Jackson Five Animated Series can be enjoyed by a whole new generation of viewers who haven't heard the music of the Jackson Five and who haven't seen the psychedelic animation style of the 70s. And the music? It's just as enjoyable now as it was in the 70s.

Note - I don't recommend watching an entire DVD's episodes in one sitting back to back to back to back etc. like I did. Each episode begins with the A-B-C theme song that, as much as I like it, eventually grows tiresome with so much repetition.
