5.0 out of 5 stars Fritz the Cat April 24 2004
Format:DVD
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
Format:DVD
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
Format:DVD
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 a cult classic March 26 2002
By Christy
Format:DVD
A crudely animated , poorly produced animated feature of tasteless humor , raunchy situations , and drugged out mania just happens to be my favorite animated film ever. Fritz is a two faced college dropout who wants to "bug out" and live each day as if it was his last , and pretty much every day in his life is almost his last as he burns his school , steals a car and goes on a crazy spin through the streets of Harlem wrecking anything in his path , insights a black riot , and finally blows up a power plant landing him in the hospital ..only to be awakened for a orgy on his hospital bed. Even though this film still carries an X rating it is very very tame by today's standards , not to mention very outdated. The animation is somewhat poor but it adds to the grittyness of the NY setting ..however the psychadelic color use in the background gets very very annoying..and it also contains some long scenes that would be better off cut (the Crowe dancing to Bo Didly , and the Rabbi's reading in the synagogue) but this film remains a cult classic nonetheless and should at least be viewed by anyone with an open mind or with a fondness for adult animation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super-Hip Outta Site Dolemite Nov. 25 2000
Format:DVD
Fritz is a student at New York University. He meets a couple of chicks (and pussies and poodles) in Washington Square Park and induces them home for a bath-tub orgy. Pigs (cops) break up the action and chase Fritz into a synagogue. He escapes and returns to his pad where he burns his books (and consequently his school) and then flees to Harlem. There he makes the aquaintance of Duke, a black crow. Together they steal a car and zip over to a party at Big Bertha's where Fritz gets stoned and ends up in bed with BB herself. He then mounts a car roof and delivers an impassioned lecture to a group of crows about the need to rise up against the white oppressors. A riot ensues and friend Duke is killed. Fritz then splits for the coast in feline friend Winsten's VW. Out of gas somewhere betweeen here and there, he sets off to hitch to the nearest town, where he meets a gang of Hell's Angels who enlist him in their scheme to blow up America. Fritz goes along as fas as the power plant in question, then he decides to chicken out. But the female biker with him won't let this happen - she orders Fritz to lay a stick of dynmite behind a girder and then lights the fuse, causing Fritz and the power plant to go off with a bang. Fritz lands in the hospital but won't be daunted - swathed in bandages - he conducts a bed-ridden orgy with his female vistors. ** A CULT CLASSIC 5/5 SQUIRTS

2.0 out of 5 stars Not what Crumb wanted
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. Read more
