5.0 out of 5 stars Fritz the Cat April 24 2004
Ah, "Fritz The Cat" one of the most beloved Adult Cartoons there is, in fact "Fritz The Cat" influenced the adult
cartoons we have today to an extent, showcasing violence and sex and in between commenting on society where it is, where it has been, and where it's going to.
First I should say, that this is the first animated movie that was given an "X"
by MPAA. After looking at the film I'd say it has more of an "R" rating at best.
I also I am glad to finally write a review on it, because the cartoon has been dismissed as trash by critics, but
it's not trash, there are a couple of interesting bits in the movie, but if you watch the movie with "head up your butt, politically correct" mentality, then
you wont see the points the movie is trying to make.
Now "Fritz the Cat" was done by Legendary Ralph Bakshi who has brought classics like "Spiderman" and
"The Hulk" cartoons to tv, but as a director he has matured over the news
and has use his medium and power to include bigger cartoon movies that showcase societal messages like in his "Wizards" cartoon movie with Mark Hamill (from Star Wars) to comment on WWII and Nazi party.
Now the film was also made from writer Robert Crumb who created the characters. Now if you watch any of Crumb's cartoons you catch several of his trademark "movies" like "Heavy Traffic" a good movie about out work artists with commentary on society , capitalism and the movie industry itself. The movie also has a very dark imagination often putting in live action with animation and mingling the two successfully too .
Now it has been released on DvD, but the DVD is very poor offering no extras, so dont waste any money on it,
the vhs version is much cheaper to get.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Animated Feature Oct. 13 2003
Now this film isn't for every one. The orgie scene alone will probably offend half of Americans out there, but if you can look beyond all of it you can enjoy one of the most classic American animated films of all time. And yes, I dare call it that.
Fritz the Cat is not only a classic for bringing Ralph Bakshi into the Hollywood fray, but it also does some thing few American animated films accomplish: it presents a time in America and the founding ideologies and feelings of that period. Drugs, free love, government, the Middle East, racism...its all there. "Oliver and Company" may have some nice shots of New York City, but Fritz the Cat captures the look and feel of the city and its people better than that film ever could.
Ralph Bakshi is one of my idol animators, and I believe this is one of his landmark films. It will remain a classic, whether some people want it to or not.

5.0 out of 5 stars This movie has stayed with me since 1972 Sept. 17 2002
I was senior in high school when I saw this movie, we had to drive to the only x-rated drive in the area. I never saw anything like it, and I loved it. I think this movie broke down some barriers so we could have shows like "The Simpsons", "King of the Hill" and "South Park". The adult element in animated
features is something that was much needed, before this all we had was Bugs Bunny. It's trail blazing material like this that keeps me coming to the theaters.

5.0 out of 5 stars There's just something about it... April 21 2004
By A Customer
that's hard to describe. The first time I saw this was on VHS when I was in high school, about 15 years ago. I was very excited when the soundtrack became available on CD and the film on DVD. It has a vibe that goes beyond the typical sex-and-drugs commentary. The film has important things to say, but people looking for a standard Hollywood film aren't going to understand. My friends and I still use some of the one-liners today! And of course, anyone who's been to college can sympathize with Fritz, as he rants and raves about pretentious intellectuals...
Give it a shot. I still get something out of it, even after 15 years of regular viewing. (...)

5.0 out of 5 stars A film that should be looked on with and openmind Nov. 27 2003
Well many consider this film to both suck and blow at the same time, yet you must look at it how it was meant 2 be watched - not as a serious portrait of nyc in the 60s but as a comic animation of the more important things in our life! Loved the film, embodies student life 2 the full teehee and will get you rolling around in laughter very very very quickly ITS NOT A SERIOUS FILM!!!! ITS VERY VERY FUNNY - PERFECT FOR THOSE LATE FRIDAY WASTED NITES GOGOGOGOOOOOOOOOOOO forth and buy it! If you like drugs sex or anything inbetween this is your film

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what Crumb wanted Nov. 6 2003
R. Crumb, underground comix legend and creator of Fritz the Cat, hated this movie. One can understand why, with the one dimensional characters and lame excuse for a plot. The animation is well done, but doesn't feel like a work of Crumbs (which it is not). You are better off sticking to the comix and staying away from this movie, that way you'll get a better idea of what Fritz was meant to be.
