Trivia

Cosby hired non-professional child actors for the voices of Fat Albert's gang. But the children's performances were stiff. Cosby helped loosen them up by arm-wrestling and playing football in the studio with them. See more »

Outstanding cartoon special
27 March 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really loved this cartoon special. I was becoming a big Cosby fan at the time. This was my early introduction to pieces from a few of his routines (Buck-Buck w/ Fat Albert, 9th St Bridge(?), Little Brother Russell).

It had some very positive messages for kids, before they became obligatory in cartoons. The music, animation (not sophisticated but very stylized), & dialog were all funky & really cool.

I've Been hoping it will come out on DVD some day, or at least the soundtrack (I think it might have been Herbie Hancock).

I think I can remember a few choice lines: "OK, Momma didn't buy you from the Salvation Army....For now." "Do you have anything in the way of a mint?" "Yay Wolfman!...Snort snort snort...Yay Wolfman!" (had to be there)

Highly recommended, even if you're not a kid.
