    Star War's Yoda and Fat Albert's wise old man are strikingly similar; i am unsure which was produced first, perhaps Star Wars adopted the dirty old man of Fat Albert and gave him the Japanese name & Buddhist theme that Yoda is known for.

    Mudfoot Brown (voiced by Bill Cosby) is an old sage and unemployed vagrant who gives advice to the gang, often using reverse psychology to get his point across. (He makes a minor appearance in the film adaptation, at the beginning and end of the film, voiced by Earl Billings—however, he is never referred to by name in the film.)

    The wise old man is an archetype in the heroic myth that Joseph Campbell says has appeared in every culture on earth that has told or written stories.

    it's not a "magic negro" if the people he helps are black.

    yoda resided in a ghetto, respectively.

    lets face it, it was more of a swamp than a place of civility.
