Bill Cosby's plumb animated alter-ego isn't new to DVD: Fat Albert
has been released during the past decade by Time Life, by Urban Works, and by Classic Media. But always in bits and pieces. Now Shout! Factory has worked out a license for this classic Filmation-produced cartoon, and is set to release Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids - The Complete Series
on July 31st
! This 16-DVD set will be priced at $119.99 SRP, but you can pre-purchase it now
from Amazon at a tidy discount ($83.99 as of this writing...just a bit over $5 a disc!). We don't have a list of contents yet, so we don't know what extras (if any) might be on board, or if The Cos himself is participating (we hope so!). We know that 110 episodes of the show were produced, plus 4 specials, but we're not even aware yet if the specials are part of this release. We'll try to find out and let you know, so stay tuned!
