Comedy inspired by the 1970s animated television series. When Doris (Kyla Pratt), a sad teenager in Philadelphia, turns on a rerun of 'Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids', her tears compel the always-helpful Fat Albert (Kenan Thompson) to jump through the TV screen to her rescue. His friends quickly follow, and to Doris's astonishment, the whole Fat Albert gang magically transforms into real live people right in her living room. Not knowing what to do with her odd new friends, Doris denies having a problem and encourages the boys to jump back into the TV set. But Albert can see that Doris is lonely and is determined to find her some friends. As Albert tries to fix Doris's problem, the rest of the gang tries to adjust to their new, unscripted world. Meanwhile, Albert finds himself falling in love with Doris's foster sister, Lauri (Dania Ramirez). But as soon as the gang begins to enjoy the perks of being real, their brightly coloured outfits start to fade. Taking this as a sign that they do not belong in the real world, the boys decide it's time to go home.
