Back in late December we posted news
featuring the complete schedule of Fat Albert
titles coming to DVD in 2005. Now DVDPlanet.com has listed all of these titles for pre-order, agreeing with the SRP's and disc counts for all of them. They do show a few changes to the street dates, however:
- Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids - Vol. 2 - Episodes 13-24 has been pushed a couple of weeks, from 6/14 to 6/28.
- Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids - Vol. 3 - Episodes 25-36 was previously said to be coming on 9/6, along with the Halloween Special. If DVDPlanet's listing is accurate, it's now moved to 10/11, to arrive at the same time as the Christmas Special instead.
- The New Fat Albert featuring the Brown Hornet was originally said to be hitting on 12/13, but has improved quite a bit according to DVDPlanet by moving to 11/8
- One note about the disc counts: the 2nd Volume is shown by DVDPlanet to have "3 Discs," but the 3rd Volume is listed there with "2 Discs." Both can be considered to be correct, after a fashion: each set will have 2 DVDs, plus a bonus audio CD featuring all songs performed in the episodes.
Here's a quick list of all the links to the just-added releases for Fat Albert
DVDs at DVDPlanet, and the discounted price there:
Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids - Vol. 2 - Episodes 13-24 $17.47, 6/28
Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids - Vol. 3 - Episodes 25-36 $17.47, 10/11
Fat Albert & The Cosby Kids - Halloween Special $6.99, 9/6
Fat Albert & The Cosby Kids - Christmas Special $6.99, 10/11
The New Fat Albert featuring the Brown Hornet $34.97, 11/8
