The Jackson 5ive

The Jackson 5ive Show is a cartoon show that replicates the lives of the teen heartthrob group, The Jackson Five. Young babyboomers know that world-renowned pop star, the late Michael Jackson, was a member of this sibling group and started his illustrious career as the lead singer. Adorable as a little boy, Michael Jackson was a heartthrob and a outstanding performer.

Other brothers included Jermaine, Jackie, Tito and Marlon. In the cartoon series, the five brothers always problem solved situations encountered while on the road. The highlight of each show was a featured song that was shown on the cartoon as a concert performance.

Some of the Jackson 5ive's biggest hits were: I Want You Back, I'll Be There, Stop the Love You Save, ABC and Maybe Tomorrow.

Although the Jackson Five was one of the most popular teen groups in history, the cartoon was short-lived.
