Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids Game. Springfield, Massachusetts: Milton Bradley Company, 1973.

Bill Cosby based the Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids cartoon show on his own childhood experiences in Philadelphia. Intelligently designed as an educational tool, the show dealt with the basic social issues confronting urban youth: family problems, illiteracy, substance abuse, violence. The show also urged acceptance of those with physical disabilities and promoted racial tolerance.
