I’m sure in the stale purple clouds of pot this movie was very deep and made a lot of sense. As a totally sober viewer in 2013, this was one of the most painful and faux-profound films that I have had the agony to sit through. Fritz the Cat is only of interest as a cultural curio – the first X-rated animated film in existence. A modicum of praise must be offered the film’s way for expanding ... read more

Honestly, it is a rather difficult movie to judge. Indeed, the animation is probably not the best you have seen (apparently, they had such a low budget that Bakshi didn't even use pencil tests so that's hardly surprising) and its artistical merit is rather dubious. Still, even though it might not be a masterpiece, I still believe it is a groundbreaking feature. Indeed, even if I have seen by now a... read more

Still, even though it might not be a masterpiece, I still believe it is a groundbreaking feature. Indeed, even if I have seen by now around 5000 movies, I have never seem something similar before or after. Indeed, a mainstream animated picture is hugely time consuming (especially 40 years ago when everything was hand-drawn) and costs a lot so the producers have always been focusing on some safe family features to minimize the risks. At least, Ralph Bakshi dared to take some risks and he was rewarded by the box-office as this mov” read more

Fritz the Cat

“I’m sure in the stale purple clouds of pot this movie was very deep and made a lot of sense. As a totally sober viewer in 2013, this was one of the most painful and faux-profound films that I have had the agony to sit through. Fritz the Cat is only of interest as a cultural curio – the first X-rated animated film in existence. A modicum of praise must be offered the film’s way for expanding the scope and audience from family-friendly entertainments to something more adult and wider, but that’s all of the positives that I have to give. The rest of the film is steeped in half-baked notions of satirizing the political and counter-culture moods at the time. Racism and sexual morality get torn to shreds, but what they really reveal about Ralph Bakshi is more disturbing.

" Robert Crumb said in an interview that he felt that the film was "really a reflection of Ralph Bakshi's confusion, you know. There's something real repressed about it. In a way, it's more twisted than my stuff. It's really twisted in some kind of weird, unfunny way. I didn't like that sex attitude in it very much. It's like real repressed horniness; he's kind of letting it out compulsively." Crumb also took issue with the film's condemnation of the radical left, denouncing Fritz's dialogue in t"
