Very little has been announced at this time, but Amazon has put up two listings for Jackson 5ive: The Complete Animated Series on both DVD and Blu-Ray.

The Jackson 5ive debuted on ABC on September 11, 1971 and was on the schedule until October 14, 1972. A total of 23 episodes were made by Rankin-Bass who were best known for Christmas specials like Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, Frosty the Snowman and Santa Claus is Coming to Town along with animated series for the Beatles and the Osmonds. They were also the first to take a crack at the Tolkien catalog with the animated The Hobbit and The Return of the King.

While the original recordings were used, none of the members of the group voiced their animated counterparts nor did Berry Gordy whose character was never given a name but was widely accepted as being the Motown head. The only person in the group’s career that did voice their own character was Diana Ross and it was only done for the premiere episode.

Amazon lists a release date of January 15.
