Make that change.

On July 7, these five brothers will begin

their summer tour of one-nighters...

in Madison Square Garden.

Yes, I'm The Real Don Steele,

and here's the Jackson 5.

I hope you caught these kids

on The Ed Sullivan Show last night.

From the fact-is-stranger-than-fiction


Michael Jackson

has built a shrine to Elizabeth Taylor...

in the bedroom of his Encino home.

Michael Jackson was admitted

with severe burns to his scalp...

as far as we know.

Michael Jackson.

The Guinness Book of World Records

has listedThriller...

as the biggest-selling album of all time.

Michael Jackson has become

the first artist in the history of music...

to generate six

number-one singles off one album.

The album of course is Bad.

What Michael Jackson has achieved

is a tribute to 20 years of hard work...

energy, tireless dedication.

Your success

is an American dream come true.

- And the winner is...

- Beat It, Michael Jackson.

Billie Jean, Michael Jackson.

Thriller. Quincy Jones

and Michael Jackson.

So what's up?

Who's bad?

So that's the way it goes down?

Good afternoon

and welcome to our studio tour.

I must ask you that no photos be taken,

and please do not feed the performers.

Thank you.

- Is Bubbles in my trailer?

- Yes, sir.

What is he wearing?

He's wearing a Prince T-shirt

and red sneakers.

Prince T-shirt?

While on the tour,

please do not startle the performers...

as that jarring

can disturb their breeding habits.

Little studio humor there.

Have you seen

any famous people, Timmy?

No, not yet, Grammy.

Can somebody get me

a banana-cream pie after lunch?

What if they're out?

- Can they make me one?

- Consider it done, MJ.

- What's with all the smoke?

- Movie stuff, sir.

Look, Grammy, it's...

- Mantovani?

- No, Michael Jackson!

Excuse me.

Land of the free.

Home of the weird.

Wonder if they caught him.

- Which way did they go?

- I don't know.

Look, Biff, there he is.

Hey, buddy, how about an autograph?

Would you autograph my tummy?

What's the matter, you got no pen?

Let's get him!

Come on, buddy, just one little autograph.

Draw, you tin-horned, lily-livered,

side-winding snail!


You hairball! I'll never finish this movie!

Who let him in? Isn't anybody in charge?

Don't you know anything

about show business?

I'm sorry.

My producer is doing this to me, isn't he?

I asked for a bad guy...

and he gives me Michael Jackson.

I can't take it anymore! I quit!

Peckerwood, you're going to

ruin my career. I'll show you bad.

I'm sorry. I gotta go.

Let's get the varmint!

I love you, Michael!

There he goes!

We'll wait forever to get a shot at this guy.

He's tough to shoot.

Hey, songbird!

- That's him.

- I've had enough of seeing you on my set.

I think he's in there.

Wait a minute, let me get around.

I can hear him.

I hear him.

It's awful quiet in there.

He's here.

The door's opening. Set your focus.

Stupid rabbit.

- Get out of the way, rabbit!

- Get out of here.

He must be hiding.

- Look over there.

- Look at that bunny.

Bag that bunny.

It's him!

Pull over, boy, and get your ticket right.

Me and my friend Spike, we were just...

My friend, he was just...

- Spike. He was just here...

- I need your autograph right here.

- Hi, David!

- Hi, Mary Beth!

Hi, neighbor!

What are you stopping for?

- That star over there.

- So what? Keep moving.

Maybe that's his lucky star.

- He needs one.

- Quit worrying, Katie. Come on.

What a pal.

Hey, Zeke, over here.

Hey, let me see.

- Let's get out of here!

- Katie, come on!

Katie, come on.
