Would you support “The Cosby Kids” or “Fat Albert”? In May 2017, just before his sexual assault trial began, Bill Cosby signed a deal to renew his rights to both animated shows. This would allow him to produce more merchandise that would bring the 1980s characters back to life.
Here’s the issue: Recently, Cosby was acquitted due to a mistrial and when leaving the courthouse he yelled out the “Hey! Hey! Hey!” known from his famous cartoon character Fat Albert. Some saw this of poor taste. If Cosby revamped his Fat Albert and Cosby Kids brand, would you buy for yourself or your child(ren)?
Pretty Inappropriate timing, but listen to what the crew had to say and tell us what you think.
