The Jackson 5--Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Michael--provided their own voices for this popular Saturday morning cartoon. Most of the episodes followed the brothers around as they went from one concert stop to the next. Since Michael was the cute little brother, the storylines usually involved some time of trouble he'd get himself into and he'd have to ask his brothers to help out. The episodes are are a time capsule of their late 1960's and early 1970's hits, including "I Want You Back", "Sugar Daddy", and "Stop! The Love You Save (May Be Your Own)". The shows were bright with psychedelic colors, especially during the musical segments.

One episode was a highly fictionalized version of how Diana Ross "discovered" the group and brought them to the attention of then Motown president, Berry Gordy.
