Okay guys, so I am coming to you with a fun announcement. I just found out that the Jackson 5 television animated series is coming to DVD in a few months! According to the TV Shows on DVD website, the Jackson 5 Cartoon series will be released in its entirety on January 15, 2013. The episodes will be available on either a 2 DVD set or a set of 4 Blu-Ray discs. I have told you guys before about how much I LOVE the Jackson 5 (it was actually how I became a Michael fan) so this is something I am really excited about. The site also states "The set -- which includes 23 full-length episodes -- is priced at $32.99 USD for the regular DVD (2 discs), and $39.99 USD for the Blu-ray (4 discs)."
I am an 80's baby so I did not technically grow up on the Jackson 5 cartoons when they first aired but, I have this VHS tape that my dad used to record all of the episodes that used to rerun on BET Network on the 90s. As a child I would always go to my grandparents house on the weekends, and so many afternoons I remember were spent watching the few recorded episodes of the Jackson 5 cartoon. This had to be what I was watching when I was 5 or 6 years old so, know that when I say I have been a Michael Jackson stan all my life... I mean it.
I fondly remember my favorite episode of the series being one from the second season entitled, "Jackson and the Beanstalk". The episode features the songs "Love is Here and Now You're Gone" and "Girl, Don't Take Your Love from Me". I would highly recommend the J5 cartoon to those of you who have children that already love Michael Jackson but, you'd like to expose them to some of his earlier work.
