Movie Details

Season Two of Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids increases the series' episode manifest to 20, with eight brand-new adventures. Opening the season is "The Bully", in which the title character (appropriately named Slappy) bravely waits until Fat Albert isn't around to terrorize the rest of the gang. Next up is "Smart Kid", the story of brainy but clumsy Thurmond, who works out a "talent exchange" with the brawny-but-not brainy Cosby Kids. Next is "Mister Big Time", a powerful episode in which Fat Albert must choose between friendship and honesty when he finds out one of his pals is dealing drugs. "The Newcomer" is the baby who is soon to be born into the family of the hapless Dumb Donald. Teacher Mrs. Breyfogle suggests that the gang accompany their fathers to work in "What Does Dad Do?". Albert and company are caught up in the dilemma of a girl whose parents are about divorce in "Mom or Pop". "How the West Was Lost" finds the kids getting over their stereotypical thinking about their new Native American pal Johnny. And in the season's last offering "Sign Off", Fat Albert doesn't approve of Cool Roy's uncool habit of "borrowing" street signs. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
