  • Bounce TV Acquires Fat Albert and The Cosby Kids

    Has anyone been watching the new Black TV network, Bounce TV? And if so, what are your thoughts on the programming thus far? It’s still a little early in the game I suppose, but I’m sure some of you have already started forming your opinions of it, based on its current offerings.

    Here’s the latest…

    The network announced today that it has acquired the television rights to all 113 episodes of Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids series in a licensing agreement with Classic Media. Bounce TV will launch the series with a special “Hey! Hey! Hey! It’s New Year’s Day” Marathon on Sunday, Jan. 1,2012, starting at 12 Noon ET.

    The network will rebrand its Tuesday night line-up as “Fat Tuesdays” to feature four primetime episodes of the series back-to-back every week at 8 pm ET, starting Tuesday, Jan. 3.  Also, Bounce TV can now be seen in Tallahassee, FL on WTXL-TV, and in Albany, GA on WFXL-TV. The addition of the two markets puts the network’s penetration at 72% of Black television homes.

    “The reaction to our airing of Fat Albert’s Halloween Special this past October was incredible and led to our pursuit of the entire series… For years, millions of kids watched the comedic adventures and learned real life lessons from the Cosby Kids every weekend. Those kids, now adults and parents, can rediscover those memories while creating new ones by watching Fat Albert with their children on Bounce TV… With the plethora of animated series airing nightly across the country, some laced with adult humor, we feel that Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids and their entertaining stories and messages of friendship and hope should have a weekly primetime showcase,” said Martin Luther King III, member of Bounce TV’s founding group and board of directors.

    To see our Fat Albert and The Cosby Kids animation art please visit the Black Animation section of the museum. To read more about the Fat Albert and The Cosby Kids cartoon, check out our Can’t Get Enough…Of That Funky Stuff blog.
