    • After being drugged, Scotty tells Dr. Ibanez that his name is "Fat Albert". A few months after this episode aired, Bill Cosby released his Revenge comedy LP. The track "Buck Buck" introduced the Fat Albert character to the world, who was based upon Cosby's childhood friend in Philadelphia. Fat Albert went on to become one of Cosby's most popular characters and spawned several hit cartoon series, including Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids (1972-76), The New Fat Albert Show (1979-81), and The Adventures of Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids (1984-85).
