    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 '60s stand up comedy monologues about his childhood.
    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.
    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.

    In 1984, the show was syndicated and renamed The Adventures of Fat Albert and the Cosby kids. It ended the same year.

    Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids enjoyed one of the longest careers in Saturday morning cartoon history.

    There are plans to release the whole series on DVD over the course of 2005.

    And I'm gonna sing a song for you
