--------------------------------------------------

This DVD contains just one episode, "The Fat Albert Easter Special", which aired on 4/3/1982 on CBS (according to the insert card), and has an exact runtime of 23:12. This so-called Easter Special really has very little to do with Easter. For a minute or two at the very beginning the kids are painting Easter eggs, and for a minute at the end they're eating hard-boiled Easter eggs, and that's all there is in the main story that's Easter-related. There's a Brown Hornet short (which the insert card says is entitled "Casnac") randomly inserted a few minutes into the episode as a way to eat up some of the special's short runtime, which is the most Easter-related part of the entire special, and it's a trippy adventure in outer space on a planet inhabited by Easter bunnies!

The main story is about the kids deciding to clean up Mudfoot's house and pay his bills, as a kindness for the Easter season. They could have decided to do these good deeds for Christmas, Rosh Hashanah, or just for no particular holiday reason at all. That they SAY it's for Easter is apparently all that's needed to make this an Easter special! Anyway, Rudy attempts to pull a practical joke, but it backfires causing Mudfoot to end up in the hospital. Naturally, Rudy feels bad, so do the rest of the kids.

5.0 out of 5 stars An awesome easter special! March 4, 2005
By S. Hill
I've recently purchased this DVD. I've been waititng for Albert and Co. to be released on DVD at affordable prices. This special is an emotional one because it teaches us how valauble a life is. After watching it, I felt like crying after the kids witnessed Mudfoot in a fatal accident from Rudy's practical joke. Just as Albert said, Easter meant new life and rebirth of life. Forget about Peter Cottontail and movies with Easter egg hunts, this TV special is a must watch for all ages, and Fat Albert fans, too. Wholesome shows like Fat Albert are rare to find today, one where you can learn and have fun too with everyday characters. Thank you Bill Cosby and Filmation for a wonderful series.

This was one of the later 70's episodes, which featured inserts of the Brown Hornert cartoon shorts, rather than the musical breaks featured in the early 70's shows. This Easter themed show starts out with the Gang rushing to watch the Brown Hornet and his spacey Easter heroics, before settling back down into a story about Rudy playing a practical joke that lands old Mudfoot in the hospital, and the Gang coming to terms with how to deal with it. It's more about goodwill than the Easter Bunny, but they manage to decorate some eggs in the meantime.

All in all, a worthwhile show that kids today should love. Since it's touch upon the Easter holiday is light, this special can be enjoyed anytime of the year. It's only a half hour show, with a find the Easter Bunny game as an extra, but it's offered at a low price. I think it's a must have for Fat Albert fans both new and old!
