A Childhood Memory of Halloween in the 80's
Sallie A. Martin | OK | 07/04/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The late 70's and 80's were the prime times for cartoon characters. Garfield, the Smurfs, the Muppet Babies and Fat Albert were brightening up television screens on Saturday mornings for many children, me included.

Holiday specials were always something I looked forward to as a child. Garfield's Halloween and Christmas specials were not to be missed as well as Fat Albert's Christmas and my favorite, Fat Albert's Halloween Special. Suddenly these annual treats disappeared off of tv and vhs copies were hard to get a hold of. Now that we have dvd technology, Fat Albert's Halloween special is going to be released in time for Halloween 2005!

This special, shown for the first time in 1977, includes all the characters from the show who decide to dress up and trick people around town. Their antics result in getting kicked out of the neighborhood theater, and a visit to an old man results in him eating all of the gang's treats. They then decide to visit Old Lady Blackwell's place, and end up scaring themselves more than the old lady, who they are sure is the meanest woman in town. When one of the gang's sisters disappears into the old lady's house, they are sure she is gone forever, but are very surprised to find out that not only is she okay but happy to be with Old Lady Blackwell. Bill Cosby did a great job voicing the characters and the cheesy music was equally as memorable. This special ran through much of the 80's and I looked forward to it every year. Now I can look forward to revisiting my Halloween memories of the 80's and seeing this great special in the dvd quality we have all come to expect."

"This DVD release takes me back to October, 1977 when I first saw "The Fat Albert Halloween Special" on network television. I was always a fan of the Saturday morning "Fat Albert & The Cosby Kids" cartoon, and of this special in particular. This special doesn't quite match "It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown," but it's still a classic that deserves to be seen by kids of all ages. Maybe it's just a chance to stroll down memory lane and relive Halloween's gone by, but it sure is nice to have this in my collection. The bonus episodes are also enjoyable.

For older kids like me, it's great to watch Fat Albert and the gang go Trick or Treating once again. And, like Bill Cosby says at the beginning of the TV series, "You may even learn something before it's done... so let's get ready, ok? HEY! HEY! HEY!""

"If it weren't enough we are getting all those wonderful Fat Albert cartoons from our childhoods, we're getting this special that ranks among my favorites along with It's The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown. I have small glimpses of this that pop up in my head but I can't remember so much about it. I just know I loved it at a younger age and the Crosby kids present many things that made that time of year a happy one...just like the whole series shows what being a kid was all about."
