J5 - Get It On!

Hellzapoppin!!! Think that's a dirty word?! Well, not this time, kiddies - cos this was the name of a special show The ABC-TV Comedy Hour presented last March that made everybody go "bananas!" Billed as "a madcap variety review," the wild and woolly program featured your fav five-the Jacksons-and a special sixth-little brother Randy, who played the conga drums and danced a few fancy steps! Also doing nutty things on this slapstick blend of vaudeville-and-burlesque were Jack Cassidy (famous father of superspectatular David), Ronnie Schell, Lynn Redgrave and Rex Reed. Making brief "cameo" appearances were tunny Ruth Buzzi and Carol Burnett's good-lookin' sidekick Lyle Waggoner. That's not all-the Volantes rode unicycles and Bob Williams entertained with his dog "Louie."

Music 'n madness marked every moment of the entertaining hour-with music that was the most when performed by your very own Jackson 5! Michael belted out Got To Be There-and he was very much there, in fact! Those beautiful Jacksons-in their colorful-as-ever garb-also sang Sugar Daddy and Brand New Thing.

To prove that more of a good thing isn't necessarily too much, didn'tchathink rambunctious Randy was so good that he should always be part of the Jackson 5 act?!

Dig the dandy duds an these bright boys! Hope you saw them on color TV-so you could tell that absolutely every color of the rainbow was represented in their outfits' VIM

The guys' vests Flowers were big this night. Michael's and Jackie's shirts were veritable gardens, And Marion's outfit was not exactly dull, either- his print shirt, wow-ee pants and wide belt looked super' Aha! The mood changes and so do the boys clothes!! Marlon donned overalls with perky owls perched all over them-and Jackie's shirt was ruffled and wide open at the chest I

J5 - Dans le coup!

Hellzapoppin!!! Vous pensez que c'est un gros mot?! Eh bien, pas cette fois, les enfants - car c'était le nom d'une émission spéciale du Comedy Hour de la chaine ABC, diffusée en mars dernier, et rendit tout le monde zinzin! Présentée comme une "revue de variété un peu déjantée", le programme sauvage et confus avait pour invité vos cinq favoris, les Jackson, et un spécial petit sixième frère, Randy, qui joua du conga et dança quelques pas très joyeux! Egalement là à faire des choses folles dans cette grosse farce vaudeville et burlesque furent Jack Cassidy (le célèbre père du superspectaculaire David), Ronnie Schell, Lynn Redgrave et Rex Reed. Ruth Buzzi et Lyle Waggoner, le sous-fifre de Carol Burnett, ont aussi fait de brèves apparences. Ce n'est pas tout, car les Volantes étaient sur des monocycles et Bob Williams avec son chien "Louie".

La musique et la follie ont marqué chaque seconde de cette heure de divertissement, avec de la musique interprété par vos Jackson 5 adorés! Michael interpréta Got To Be There! Ces beaux Jackson, dans leurs costumes colorés comme jamais, chantèrent aussi Sugar Daddy et Brand New Thing.

Pour prouver que plus d'une bonne chose n'est pas nécessairement trop, Randy était si bon qu'il aurait pu être membre des Jackson 5 depuis toujours?!
