The show, based on Cosby's remembrances of his childhood gang, centered on Albert (known for his catchphrase Hey hey hey), and his friends. Every episode has an educational lesson emphasized by Cosby's live action segments, and the gang would usually gather in their North Philadelphia junkyard to play a rock song on their cobbled together instruments at the end of the show. Fat Albert qualifies as core programming because every episode teaches a life lesson that appeals to kids aged 7 to 12, the implied ages of the characters on the show.
