1 I'd rather have Fat Albert than Sponge Bob any day. The show was full of good morals and music, and the kids of today should watch old Fat Albert cartoons instead of any of the newer cartoon shows that are full of gross out gags. -- Submitted By: (JayD) on December 17, 2012, 5:38 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Bill Cosby at his best. We need a show like this now. -- Submitted By: (jimdcarter) on December 16, 2012, 9:58 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I loved this show as a kid and considered it a highlight of Saturday morning cartoons. However; even back then I used to wonder about the laugh/applause tracks. I mean, did they REALLY think that they'd think kids at home would imagine a group of people who had nothing better to do than to attend a CARTOON SHOW during which they could instantly laugh and applaud? Yeah, I know if Fat Albert could make a radiator and a pillow sound like an electric organ. . . -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on June 4, 2011, 4:02 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Fat Albert was something I watched when I was a kid, and I now have two volumes on DVD - the early episodes did a great job in teaching important lessons without being overly preachy or completely dull. -- Submitted By: (BigAl) on November 15, 2010, 2:17 pm - (3 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Fat Albert was pretty much a Saturday morning staple for me. However, I was beginning to lose interest in Sat AM cartoons in general about the time the Brown Hornet rolled around. What I do recall of that character- he didn't add much to the show. I was out of high school and in the 9 to 5 work world by the time The Legal Eagle appeared on the scene and thus I have no memory of that one. -- Submitted By: (Friedrich_Feuerstein) on August 19, 2010, 12:21 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 Good point, kingbk. I always liked the show even though I couldn't stand the Brown Hornet. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 10, 2010, 7:27 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Great cartoon that taught lessons and morals without being boring, dull or preachy. The kids acted like kids and the show had lots of comedy. It started losing its luster when the Brown Hornet was added to the show in 1979 and the Legal Eagle in 1984. By that point, the focus moved away solely from the gang and to other characters that weren't as interesting or redeeming. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on May 9, 2010, 6:41 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Not many cartoons can deliver morals or lessons very well, but Fat Albert did it the best, IMHO. I loved this cartoon as a kid, and I love it even now. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on August 30, 2009, 1:49 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
9 Still rocks. The cool thing about Fat Albert was that the show got the lesson across while still being fun and NOT being preachy. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on August 25, 2009, 7:29 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
10 I love this one. I watch it every Saturday morning with Noina when we was kids. -- Submitted By: (shanequia) on August 24, 2009, 1:24 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
