Fat Albert and the Gang must save Christmas, their clubhouse
Doctor Trance | MA, United States | 11/18/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)
"It's your typical Fat Albert episode, gone Christmas themed. The always looking to do good gang is facing the demolition of their clubhouse, and a friend's father has lost his job, leaving his family homeless for Christmas. It's up to Fat Albert to save the holiday for everyone, and to do it, he needs to show the grinchy Tightwad Tyrone the spirit of Christmas. I won't spoil the end, so you'll have to buy it and see!
You get one 1/2 hour episode (or 23 minutes) and one game, which is find out which snowman Fat Albert is hiding behind. It's a simple game, but my son kept wanting to play it over and over. The colors are very bright and the DVD quality is excellent. I think it would have been nice to have both this one and the Halloween episode on 1 DVD. Either way, I would purchase this one from Amazon, as I have never seen it sold in any local stores. A great find for the Fat Albert fan."
Fat Albert Does it again with X-mas special

(5 out of 5 stars)
"I've seen this special three times and just recently picked up this copy on DVD. The sound and colors are beautiful, better than the syndicated airings. Next to the easter special, this one was one of Albert's best holiday specials Filmation produced. The plot lines of Marshall's family and Tyrone showed us what Christmas is about. We must reach out to help others and put our agendas aside. Albert and Co. always demonstrated that. I can't wait to complete the (CBS era) collection of Fat Albert. This was one of my all time favorite Sat am shows. Regardless of animation quality, this Filmation creation deserves respect. I'm happy that I can afford to buy the DVDs at low prices."
