Jackson 5ive: The Complete Animated Series is set to be released on DVD and as a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack on January 15th, 2013.
The sets feature 23 full-length episodes and 46 original Jackson 5ive Songs with two complete songs in each episode.
The Jackson 5ive TV series, produced by Rankin/Bass and Motown Productions, originally aired on ABC from September 11, 1971 through October 14, 1972, and was loosely based on the life of the Jackson 5ive band members, Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael, and their manager, Berry Gordy. Maybe you remember the episodes' featured Jackson 5ive songs and storylines where the band is challenged and faced with adversity.
The cartoon paid homage to the band's musical influences with hidden references, and helped to transcend color and gender barriers of its time. The classic series is just as relevant for viewers today, and a perfect way for children and teens to connect with their parents.
