Holiday specials were always something I looked forward to as a child. Garfield's Halloween and Christmas specials were not to be missed as well as Fat Albert's Christmas and my favorite, Fat Albert's Halloween Special. Suddenly these annual treats disappeared off of tv and vhs copies were hard to get a hold of. Now that we have dvd technology, Fat Albert's Halloween special is going to be released in time for Halloween 2005!
This special, shown for the first time in 1977, includes all the characters from the show who decide to dress up and trick people around town. Their antics result in getting kicked out of the neighborhood theater, and a visit to an old man results in him eating all of the gang's treats. They then decide to visit Old Lady Blackwell's place, and end up scaring themselves more than the old lady, who they are sure is the meanest woman in town. When one of the gang's sisters disappears into the old lady's house, they are sure she is gone forever, but are very surprised to find out that not only is she okay but happy to be with Old Lady Blackwell. Bill Cosby did a great job voicing the characters and the cheesy music was equally as memorable. This special ran through much of the 80's and I looked forward to it every year. Now I can look forward to revisiting my Halloween memories of the 80's and seeing this great special in the dvd quality we have all come to expect.
You get one 1/2 hour episode (or 23 minutes) and one game, which is find out which snowman Fat Albert is hiding behind. It's a simple game, but my son kept wanting to play it over and over. The colors are very bright and the DVD quality is excellent. I think it would have been nice to have both this one and the Halloween episode on 1 DVD. Either way, I would purchase this one from Amazon, as I have never seen it sold in any local stores. A great find for the Fat Albert fan.
For older kids like me, it's great to watch Fat Albert and the gang go Trick or Treating once again. And, like Bill Cosby says at the beginning of the TV series, "You may even learn something before it's done... so let's get ready, ok? HEY! HEY! HEY!"
