Fat Albert and Little Lotta and Political Correctness
Today's Fat Albert would be a LOT fatter than the iconic Fat Albert of yesteryear but would Fat Albert even be allowed in today's politically correct world. I think not. The real life fat Albert, Al Roker had weight loss surgery and he's a skinny runt now.
Little Lotta would be even more problematic these days. The fat feminists would probably kill the creator of Little Lotta. Lotta stories were penned by Warren Kremer and Howard Post, and for the majority of the years that she appeared in comics, she was drawn by Sid Couchey and Dom Sileo.
