* JacobMarleyWarning[=/=]JerkassHasAPoint: The aforementioned prison episode has a pair of unnamed inmates speaking to Fat Albert and company during their "scared straight" visit. They are very direct and not at all friendly; they tell the kids how horrifying prison is and how torturous their experience has been. One even explains that he's serving a twenty year sentence and he'll never be same again once he gets out since all he has ever known is prison life.

Creator/BillCosby created this Creator/{{Filmation}} series, based on his boyhood in UsefulNotes/{{Philadelphia}} (and, more directly, on his StandUpComedy routines of the 1960s, like ''AudioPlay/IStartedOutAsAChild''. ). Cosby also appeared on camera as a {{Narrator}} and performed some of the character voices, including Fat Albert himself. The show ran [[SaturdayMorningCartoon Saturday mornings]] on Creator/{{CBS}} from 1972 to 1984, followed by one additional season in first-run {{syndication}}. In addition to a good income and setting up a ready audience for ''Series/TheCosbyShow'' to rule the airwaves in the 1980s, Cosby also used this series to earn a Doctorate in Education, and become Dr. Cosby.
