Episode Summary

Gang Wars

The gang helps clean up a lot that'll be part of a new park that will be a place for young people to play, have a good time, and keep out of trouble. The group invites their friend Fernando to be the MC (Master of Ceremonies) for the grand opening, but he's pressured by his older brother Tito to join his street gang that's in a war with another in their neighborhood. Fat Albert is greatly concerned when he's unable to convince the other gang to stop the violence, and also the fact they have guns, which are certain to make things worse. On the night of the gang war, Fat Albert and Police Sargeant Hernandez try to keep Fernando safe as he searches for Tito. But when the boy sees his brother being targeted, he takes the ultimate risk to get his brother out of harm's way, and pays the deadly price, as Fernando is shot to death. Sgt. Hernandez arrests the assailant and other members of the gang. Tito vows revenge, but Fat Albert convinces him nothing he'll do can bring his brother back. The following day, the park opening is a somber event as Fat Albert's speech is in sad memory to his fallen friend and the park is named in honor of Fernando Garcia.
