Episode Summary

Read, Baby, Read

The gang's new classmate Mickey Taylor is highly interested in sports, but has a reading problem he often denies. Their teacher assigns Fat Albert to help tutor him, but Mickey opts to watch football practice instead. Later in the week, the gang invites him to play in a game across town and provide him with a map on how to get there. However, he gets lost, and not being able to read, takes a short through an active construction area. He's quickly in danger, but fortunately Mickey's football idol Buck and Fat Albert are able to assist construction workers in saving him in time. Buck admits he had a reading problem as well, but was able to work hard enough to do very well and tells Mickey reading is vital in understanding the various football plays for the sport. Mickey agrees to work with Buck in his desire to be a football player.
