Learning from each other while we do our thing.
20 April 2004 | by See all my reviews

"Hey, hey, hey! It's Fat Albert, And I'm going sing a song for you and I'm going to teach you a thing or two. We'll have a good time just me and all of my friends. Learning from each other while we do our thing. Na na gonna have a good time! Na na gonna have a good time." "This is Bill Cosby. Stay tuned for music, adventure, and fun and you might learn something before it's done so let's get started okay? HEY! HEY! HEY!" "Na na gonna have a good time! Na na gonna have a good time."

This was one of my favourite cartoons growing up and I still love it. :) I learned a lot from this show just be watching. Divorce, drugs, how to rescue someone after they've had a heart attack, and difficulties in being a young mother. Thanks Mr Cosby. I really had a good time watching this cartoon and good luck with the Fat Albert movie. :)
