Based on the 80s show ‘Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids’; this animation/ live-action film is in part a tribute to Albert Robertson, the true character upon which ‘Fat Albert’ was based. While grieving her recently passed granddad, Doris lets a tear fall on to the TV remote, creating a link between the TV-world and real-world, and naturally Fat Albert is the first one to jump out of the TV and into the real world trying to console poor Doris.

But Rudy, Dumb Donald, Mushmouth, Bucky, Old Weird Harold and Bill jump out of the TV too as the show ends. This means that they have to stay till the next day so they can jump back when their show is on. And in the meantime, there’s no harm in trying to cheer up Doris and help her out a bit with people in school. That is until Fat Albert’s eyes fall upon Doris’ stepsister Lauri…
