The first appearance of Fat Albert. This special inspired the creation of the series "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids". The plot was based on the 'go-kart skit' from Bill Cosby's 1966 album 'Wonderfulness'.
An obese boy named Fat Albert and his friends Rudy, Mushmouth, Bill, Dumb Donald, Russell, and Weird Harold, pulls into trouble when they "fall" out of their TV world into the real world, where Fat Albert tries to help a young girl, Doris, make friends. However, the simple life of the group is interrupted when Fat Albert falls for Doris' older sister, Lauri, sparking his friends to worry that their leader may never want to return to his cartoon world again.

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 »
Fat Albert's shirt was clearly fading before the scene where he's hanging outside the window trying to get Lauri's attention. However, when he's at the window, his shirt is bright red again. It returns to being faded when he lands on the garbage bags. 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 »

I really had a good time watching this movie. We all remember the 70's cartoon heroes named Fat Albert and the Cosby kids who came from the genius created mind of Bill Cosby. Each week Fat Albert and his gang would help people and solve problems. Now it's 2004 and Doris come home from school after having a bad day she turns on Fat Albert and begins to cry and Fat Albert the cartoon hears her cry and jumps out of cartoon land and into reality to help Doris with her problem and the Cosby kids follow him. But what they are going to discover is that their world and this world are completely different. Like Garfirld and Scooby Doo, another great cartoon character comes to life. It was a fascinating idea by Bill Cosby for the famous cartoon characters to jump into reality. I really enjoyed this movie, it was pure fun.
