Cartoon Production Information:


"Na-na-na, gonna have a good time, Hey, hey hey!"

The show initially ran on CBS from 1972-1984, but moved to NBC in syndication for one year in 1989. The episodes revolved around the daily life lessons learned by Albert and his friends. Topics ranged from social issues to personal introspection and were blended with humor and music. Among the many great characters that inhabited Fat Albert's world were Rudy, Mushmouth, Donald, Bill, Weird Harold and Russell.

Bill Cosby lent his voice to many of the Fat Albert characters, playing Fat Albert, Bill, Mushmouth, Mudfoot and the Brown Hornet.

Live action bumpers featuring Bill Cosby were set around animated episodes of Fat Albert and The Cosby Kids, a series about a group of urban adolescents growing up in a Philadelphia neighborhood. The show was based on Cosby's 60's stand up comedy monologues about his childhood.

In 1979 the show was re-titled The New Fat Albert Show and featured a new segment called The Brown Hornet, a send-up of superhero cartoons starring a larger-than-life African-American crime fighter in outer space.

Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids enjoyed one of the longest careers in Saturday morning cartoon history, running for twelve consecutive years; a record bested only by the many incarnations of Scooby-Doo.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.

This was an interesting and unusual episode for it's bluntness. Here Fat Albert and co. deal with a kid named Suede Simpson who think's he's cool, but is actually a local joke because he does nor bathe. Russell finally stops "beating around...  (read more)

I think that the song "Soap And Water", made this one of the best episodes ever. I also think that because of russel's usual blunt honesty the show had to be a hit with all fans of the show.
