The Jackson 5ive

The Jackson 5ive was a Saturday morning cartoon series produced by Rankin/Bass and Motown Productions on ABC from 1971-1973. It was a fictionalized portrayal of the careers of Motown recording group The Jackson 5 - Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon, and Michael.

The premise of the show is that the Jackson Five would have adventures when Berry Gordy, the manager of the band in the show's universe, would come up with an idea for publicity for the band, such as having to do farm work or play a concert for the President of the United States.
