Alfredfield is the 1999 American hand-drawn/computer-animated musical comedy film directed by Lee Unkrich and Geo G. and produced and written by John Lasseter and Andrew Stanton. It was produced by Geo Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures in partnership with Paramount Pictures. The film revolves Fat Alfred and the gang named the Cosby Kids leaving their cartoon world and entering the 21st century real world in order to help a teenage girl, Doris Wendellson (Jodi Benson), deal with the challenges of being unpopular, and not having any friends aside from her foster sister, Lauri. Doris has withdrawn and fallen into depression after the death of her grandfather, Albert Robertson (who was a friend of Cosby and the real-life inspiration for the Fat Alfred character). Fat Alfred and the gang must show her that she is special and that she can make friends. But if Fat Alfred and his friends stay in the real world, they will turn to celluloid dust, and it is up to Cosby himself to help them get them back into the cartoon world.
