Great Cartoon
20 December 2003 | by (Trenton,NJ,USA) – See all my reviews



First there was the Beatles cartoon. I couldn't wait to hear the songs on the show. When the J-5ive came out I went WILD. Not long after,The Osmond Brothers had a competing show and we used to debate who was better,Michael or Donny Osmond. Some of the stories were hokie,but enjoyable. There was an episode showing how Diana Ross discovered the J-5. That is purely Motown myth. Ross never discovered the Jackson 5,she only introduced them on their public unveiling.
