Crazy Credits

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 »

hey, hey ,hey ,it's time to have a good time
23 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

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.
