    I have a nephew who is gonna be 4 in April. I'm gonna get him the first 12 episodes of Fat Albert on DVD so he can watch quality TV. The cartoons had a message back then. I think he will really enjoy that and the songs come on a bonus DVD also. He can watch those cartoons instead of BET.

    Hello,

    I'm glad you're concerned about your nephew because far too many children are being exsposed to the wrong shows. At 4 years old, he is way too young
    for BET. Heck I'm 28 and it's way to graphic for me and I havn't watched in a long while. Infact I've said this before, it hasn't been the same since the good ole days when Donnie Simpson was the host of Video Soul. I too love Fat Albert and it was on of the rarest shows that alot of us can relate to. So good luck to you and give that nephew a big hug for me.
