  • Episode Description
  • Bored with having to go to school every day, Fat Albert and the gang decide to play hooky the following day. All except Dumb Donald cut out for a day of fun activities, but get into a number of mishaps. They eventually end up at the train yards where they encounter a couple of homeless bums who often played hooky themselves, leading to their less than glamorous lifestyle. They advise the boys to stay in school before they end up the same way. The following morning, the gang is back at school, arriving much earlier than usual to catch up on their studies.moreless
