Michael Jackson's Kids Share Intimate Memories of Life With Their Famous Dad in New Documentary

We knew him as the King of Pop, but Prince, Paris and Blanket Jackson knew him as Dad.

As fans around the world mourned the death of Michael Jackson, the global superstar's three kids had to say goodbye to their father, but they continue to keep his memory alive.

According to ABC News, M.J.'s children share stories and intimate details about Michael's personal life through their eyes in a new documentary titled Remembering Michael, which is executive produced by family matriarch (and Michael's mother) Katherine Jackson.

"It took me until I was, like, 6 years old, to learn that his name was Michael Jackson. He was always 'Daddy' to me," Jackson's 16-year-old son says in the documentary.

"We didn't know a lot of kids, like, our age," Paris said of her father's attempt to keep their childhood very private. "We were more secluded. We never really left the ranch that often." Jackson's only daughter also says, "He promised me he would teach me how to moonwalk. He never got around to it."

Meanwhile, 11-year-old Blanket speaks for the first time, sharing his aspirations and goals for the future.

"I'm going to try to help, like, Africa, because that's a very poor continent," Blanket says. "There's a lot of animals that are being killed from, like, poachers and stuff. So, I want to help, like, endangered species of animals."

The documentary can be viewed online at Fundanything.com for a $10 fee.

"[Katherine] really wanted to fund this without asking any of the people around her, including the Michael Jackson estate, for funding," Kirk Schenck, producer of "Remembering Michael," told ABC News.

"He wanted us to always...be greater at it than anybody else had ever been," Prince said.

The film project has a fundraising goal of $3.2 million. "I'm inviting all of Michael's fans to join me, Prince, Paris and Blanket to finish this wonderful project. Please join us," Katherine says. "I'd love to have you."
