The series follows the adventures of an group of African American kids living in the ghettos of South Philadelphia in the early 70s. In pretty much every episode they deal with the challenges of life and many times make mistakes but learn from them and correct the mistake though sometimes there were lasting repercussions from that mistake. All and all it was a fun show that portrayed urban ghetto kids in a positive light. —Gourry Gabriev
the best black cartoon of the 1980s
I remember watching this cartoon in the 4th grade. I had to finish my homework before 5:30 when it came on. Every episode back in the days, they either sang a song at the end of the cartoon or showed the Brown Hornet or Legal Eagle at the beginning of the cartoon. It took them 100 years to bring Fat Albert back. And they just started selling DVDs of SOME Fat Albert episodes. There are still some episodes that I have never seen and some episodes that I haven't seen in 21 years! The movie was nothing like the cartoon. No bickering between Rudy and Russell that we saw every episode of the cartoon. And if anyone saw the movie before seeing the cartoon, they are like school at midnight, "NO CLASS!"
