Hey, hey, hey!

It's Fa-a-a-a-t Albert!

Hey, hey, hey!

Hey, hey, hey!

Doris. Wait up.

Some of the kids are going

for an ice cream before practice.

Want to go?

I, uh, forgot my track shoes.

I have to go back home and get them.

- Oh.

- Hi, Lauri.

Hi, Heather. Hi, Becky.

Hey, Lauri, you know, like,

what I told you about tonight?

Uh, yeah.

- So, you coming?

- Sure.


Hey, listen.

We're all goin'after school.

You're going to that party with me.

I don't think so.

Look, it's okay.

- No big deal.

- Doris, why are you acting

like such a loser?

You're not a loser.

- What's up, baby?

- Reggie, don't call me baby.

Look, Heather's havin' this party.

How about you and me,

we go together?

- What do you say?

- What do I say?

- Yeah.

- I say no.

See you at practice.

You'll go with me, right? Doris?

I wasn't invited.



Are you home?


Are you ready to lose? Because when

I buck-buck, you better duck-duck.

Are you gonna buck-buck,

or are you just gonna talk-talk?

Buck-buck number six comin'.


Yes! We held.

Now we're the buck-buck

champions of the world.

Wait. We still have

one more guy.

- Bring him out then.

- Come on out, Fa-a-a-a-t Albert.

He loves to hear us call his name.

Hey, hey, hey!

Who wants to play?

- Oh, no.

- Oh, no!

- No, no. Not that--

- No, man. I got a bad back.

Fat Albert, you got a problem to solve.

I just saw Danielle.

She said she was quittin' school

and running away from home.

Looks like Danielle is in trouble.

We have to help her.

- Hey, Danielle.

- What do you want?

- You can't quit school and run away.

- What's it to you?

- Well, I care about you.

- Well, don't.

Every time someone says they care

about me, they wind up leaving me.

But, Danielle,

you can't let fear--

- You hear that?

- Hear what?

- That.

- Hello! We have lines here, people.

That. Don't you hear that?

I have done guests spots

on Bugs Bunny and The Jetsons...

and I have never been treated like this.

I am so out of here.

Oh, my. It's a tear.

Hey, hey, hey!

What is that thing?

- It's a monster!

- And it be-- gonna be come and get--

Mushmouth thinks the monster

will crawl in here and get us.

I am so confused!

It's not a monster.

It's a girl.

And she's cryin'.

I'm going to help her.

Albert, you can't go.

We're cartoons, and this is our show.

- I have no choice.

- You go out there,

you will poke your eye out.

Why do adults always say

you'll poke your eye out?

Huh? No.

- No.

- Hey.

Let go of my legs.

- Go away!

- Let go of my legs. Ow.

Let go of my legs. Quit hittin' on me!

- Go away!

- Ow. Why you doin' me like that?

Give me the pillow and stop

hittin' on me. Let go of my legs.

Let go of my legs.

Let go--

my legs.

Oh. You stay away from me.

I'm gonna call 911 on you.

Oh, this cannot be happenin'.

I'm losing my mind.

Yeah, that's it.

Hey, hey, hey.

How'd I get this way?

I have no idea! You just need to get

back into that television set right now.


Ow. Get off my back.


Russell, you stay here.

I'm telling Mom on you.

- Look at you.

- My teeth.

Guys, help.

Get me out of here.

Oh, my.

Look-- Look at us.

- This is nuts. We-- We gotta get back.

- No, no, no.

- That girl has a problem.

- What problem?

Well, you must have a problem.

You were cryin'.

Problem. Right.


Um, I was cryin'because, uh...

Oh, you guys helped me find my backpack.

Oh, thank you so much.

Now-- Now you guys can go back into
