The Fat Albert Halloween Special is a 1977 Halloween television special based on Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids. It originally aired on CBS on October 24, 1977.


In this primetime special, Rudy and his new friend Devray spend Halloween playing practical jokes on the elderly. The Cosby kids take aim on many people in the neighborhood including Searchlight Johnson and Mudfoot Brown. While attempting their Halloween mischief, the kids get the ultimate scare from the lady who lives in the spooky house by the graveyard. When some of the kids do not return from "trick-or-treating", which Cosby kid will show the most courage?


This special has been released on DVD twice: once by Urban Works on September 6, 2005, and again by Classic Media on July 1, 2012.
