Movie Reviews

Hey Hey Hey! Fat Albert's back! Just in time for the movie!

"Finally releasing "Fat Albert" on DVD gives new life to this series that all ages can enjoy. Growing up watching this show really made me happy, like the Cosby Kids got when "The Brown Hornet" would come on! This collection of the top 5 shows is not a bad sampler and for $10, you can't go wrong. All five of the episodes are on the 20 episode ultimate collection, too. In case you don't know what episodes are on the disc, here they are, in order:
CREATIVITY - Fat Albert and the kids get the fever to start a band, but they don't have enough money to buy "real" instruments. Using the junkyard, they come up with a creative musical solution.
TAKE TWO, THEY'RE SMALL - Fat Albert's cousin, Justin, and his cool friend, Harlow, have a habit of shoplifting from stores! Will the kids join in or do the right thing?
SMOKE GETS IN YOUR HAIR - Wombley has been seen around town smoking cigarettes. Will the kids follow suit or realize that smoking is bad for your health?
SWEET SORROW - Fat Albert's figure skating friend, Roberta, offers to help the kids with their hockey skills. Unfortunately, she seems troubled by other things on her mind.
POLL TIME - Hugo (black) and Baron (white) play race politics against each other in the school election until Fat Albert and the kids come up with an alternative."

"This is a DVD worth having. I grew up watching Fat Albert and I forgot how funny it was/is. That cartoon was well put together. I love Bill Cosby for coming up with something like the Cosby Kids. I'm gonna show this to my children ...whenever I get some lol. Fat Albert is a legacy in my eyes."
Hey Hey Hey, great way to start your collection

"This early 2004 release DVD is a great sampler on the original series. It features 5 episodes that were voted the best. They are: "Creativity" (the gang is low on cash but uses their imaginations to make the things they can't afford); "Take Two, They're Small" (a lesson in the dumbness of shoplifting); "Smoke Gets In Your Hair" (great episode for kids on smoking); "Sweet Sorrow" (a girl with her own troubles takes time to help the gang); Poll Time" (tackles racism).

If you want more than just a starter, try the 2005 DVD sets, "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids, Vol. 1: The Original Animated TV Series", this is the first attempt to release the shows in their original intended order, so volume 1 starts at the beginning in 1972 with the first 12 episodes. And the early years were the best in my opinion. There was a set in 2004 called the "Ultimate Collection" which kind of randomly chose 20 episodes from across the years for each of 4 volumes, but that set is already out of print. Yet the issue on this page made at the same time is still available. Well, no matter how you buy it, get yourself some Fat Albert today!
One of the best
