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?

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:

Remember when Saturday mornings were once Saturday mornings? Or when Soul music and Motown once were what they were? This DVD answers both questions at once. I remember this from the early part of the 70's (as well as other cartoons I can recall vividly. BTW-The Osmond Brothers also had a cartoon series, but its whereabouts are unknown to this day). The troupe laugh and dance their way through various adventures (and misadventures), singing their top hits. The Jackson 5 were one of the flagships from the Motown fleet, battling with Atlantic Records for soul supremacy. From Gary, Indiana, they became a powerhouse for the Detroit-based label, and the rest, as it has been said, is music history. This item is a definite absolute MUST for the die-hard Michael Jackson fan (his fans will be thrilled to see this come along). The creative geniuses at Classic Media (The Rankin-Bass classic Christmas four DVD set) should be happy for what they have done, and it is the impossible where this cartoon is concerned. I enjoyed watching it, just like it was yesterday (and when we were all kids ourselves). I am glad this series lives again. Michael Jackson (rest in peace) is himself proud and this set does so in his honor! The songs have been remastered for the set. This reviewer can also say he is proud!
