Download one of Bill Cosby's funnier stories, "Buck Buck." Bill Cosby's 1967 album Revenge includes this track "Buck, Buck" in which he describes playing the game as a child. He mentions that in his hometown of Philadelphia it was called "Buck Buck," while in New York City it was known as "Johnny on the Pony." This track introduces Fat Albert, "the baddest Buck Buck breaker in the world," who "weighed 2,000 pounds" and was the basis for the hit cartoon series Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.
