With Cartoons, depicting a band playing instruments, it's not really all about depicting them in a believable set up, just draw a guitar here and some drums there and that will do. If they got it right (such as the case for the Archies was) it was more often a case of having more luck than wisdom. But most of the time, the bands that were depicted got VERY impractical instrument set ups which would never have worked in the day those cartoons came out and certainly not to play the kind of music they played in their respective cartoons. But given this day and age with bands like the Yeah-yeah-yeah's, the Black keys, the Tings-tings and the more sophisticated technology of loopers and triggers at their disposal, all of a sudden even the most impractical band could actually do the songs they're doing in their respective cartoon series. So we have guitar, drums and two tambourines with Josie and the Pussycats. With that instrument set up in this day and age they probably would have made it work with Josie making good use of loopers and Midi, Valerie using different kinds of percussion instruments, such as conga's and timbale drums to add flavor to the rhythm track and Melody using triggers on her kit, using those to trigger a bass sequencer to add low end. The Jackson 5 cartoon shows just Jermaine (on the far left) playing bass and Tito (on the opposite end) play guitar with all of them doing harmony singing. The REAL Jackson 5 of course made due by having an extra drummer and keyboard player strengthen their ranks on stage to pull off their songs live. But if we're going with what we have here, both Jermaine and Tito could make good use of Midi, triggers and a drum machine to actually pull off the songs with that sparse set up.
