The Osmonds was a 1972-1973 ABC-TV Saturday morning cartoon series starring the Osmond Brothers. In the first episode, Jimmy and his pet Akita, Fuji, almost sabotage their chances of being chosen to tour as goodwill ambassadors for the United States Music Committee.

This series, as well as The Jackson 5ive, used an artificial laugh track created by Rankin/Bass.[1]
