Bill Cosby explains Fat Albert’s ‘Hey, Hey, Hey’
“Bill Cosby, who provided the voice for Fat Albert, said he wanted the character to exhibit a range of emotional inflections not heard on most animated offerings of that era. He also wanted the red-sweater wearing star to have a catchphrase viewers would identify with and enjoy. And “Hey, Hey, Hey” was born.
‘Hey, Hey, Hey’ is a signal,” Cosby said. “It’s a charge that he’s coming. And that came from his love for The Temptations. (In) some of their songs, the background singers (would sing) ‘hey, hey, hey,’ that kind of thing. And so whenever Fat Albert would say that, it would come from his group, The Temps. I don’t know if Fat Albert wanted to be a background singer or be one of The Temps.”
“Hey, Hey, Hey”
We love that show it’s so funny!
