The people listed in the closing credits of the TV Land cartoon broadcast are all real-life Hollywood professionals, and some are credited with having served on the crew of this movie. The first on the list, D.J. Gugenheim, is listed as "Asst. to Z. Diddy." Joel Zwick's nickname during production was Z. Diddy, and D.J. Gugenheim was his assistant. See more »

As the end credits begin, the animated Fat Albert starts to sing the title song again. Suddenly the live action Fat Albert bursts halfway through the picture, 'looking out' at the audience and picking out audience members, saying that he has to stop the movie so he can help them and telling one guy in the back getting out of his seat that he needs to stick around for the end credits. At this point the cartoon versions of the Cosby Kids finally manage to pull Albert back into their world, and the end credits continue. See more »
Fat Albert saves the day but he can't save this movie
This movie was pretty much forced into being, and horribly so. I never watched "Fat Albert" as a kid, but I concluded that I would watch the movie based upon the cartoon's reputation. Had I known that Fat Albert and the gang would lunge through the television from cartoon town to real life, I wouldn't have even watched the opening credits.
It was a feel good story with a good message, but it was terribly done. A lot of the scenes in the movie seemed as though they were for occupying space and time more than for aiding the plot. Fat Albert can do it all, and even though he's fat, he's super cool. That is about what I got out of the bulk of the movie.
