Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids: The Complete Series
DVD $119.99 (Shout! Factory)

Inspired by his own Philadelphia childhood memories, comedian Bill Cosby created this beloved Saturday-morning cartoon series about a group of misfit urban kids who played in a junkyard, dealt with issues ranging from first love to the death of a loved one, and always stood by—and stuck up for—each other. Cosby opened and closed each episode with a “live” segment and provided the voices of several characters, including Fat Albert, whose “Hey, hey, hey!” became the show’s catchphrase. This deluxe box set, with all 110 episodes on 15 DVDs, also includes a 16-page book, a documentary on the series and commentary.
