Although Fritz's creator Robert Crumb supposedly wasn't so crazy about this film, I gotta say this is definitely the masterpiece its rumored to be... What's so wild about it (besides the incredibly funky Hammond organ laden Jazz soundtrack featuring the likes of Charles Earland and Merle Saunders) is that although it was made on the '70s and was a saracastic and twisted take on the '60s the film is anything but dated, even with all the student revolutionary, free love and pot smoking in it... In fact, I think its gotten even funnier with time... and if you're old enough to remember some of the "types" in this film... its even more funnier (or perhaps scarier.)... What freaked me out was when I realized that even BLUE the meth addict neo-nazi motorcycle gang biker and his *literally* fat cow girlfriend reminded me of some real people - - Though there aren't a lot of extra features, the trailer for the film is pretty wild and cool itself...Overall, Fritz the Cat, being one of those films who's scenes you watch over and over and over again is DEFINITELY worth getting... especially on DVD... The kicks never wear off...

Originally released in 1972.I,personally remember seeing this cult classic in a drive-in as well as at a midnight movie(sure miss those anymore;guess since everyone has a DVD player,there's so little call for such).There's STILL something to be said for viewing a movie on a twenty-five foot silver screen.Anyway,'Fritz The Cat' has to be one of the best ever counter-culture flicks ever made.Liked it better than any of the Cheech&Chong movies,except for maybe 'Up In Smoke'.Takes place in New York in the late '60's where good-for-nothing feline Fritz is on a full time search for the sex,drugs and rock&roll lifestyle.The voices in this movie fit right in.Before the likes of Beavis&Butthead,South Park and Family Man,there was this satire.Great animation,I thought.Well worth repeated views.One should enjoy many plays in future years to come.Highly recommended.Ideal humor for aging hippies,former bikers,acid heads and late nighters who don't work at a regular job.

"Fritz the Cat" looks much less revolutionary now than it did in the 1970s when it came out. The animation is flat, the characters are crude stereotypes in at least two instances that show how attitudes and perceptions change in forty years. (Police portrayed as unintelligent pigs and African Americans portrayed as over-sexed if cool drug pushers, pimps, whores drawn as crows... I am not joking!) Time to move on.

Now, I understand that movies were very obscure during the '70s (the transition from the psychedlic '60s to the extravagant '80s was a very logical progression), I mean you have exploitation films, movies with a tremendous amount of nudity, and ultra-violence, what more could you want in a decade? While I was not alive during the time this movie was released I read a review in "Playboy", and I had figured I had better see this movie to decide for myself. Even by today's standards, this is a very bizarre film, I wish I would have watched this on acid (I would have enjoyed it a lot more, pretty colors anyone). I almost fell on the floor laughing a few times the first time I saw this.
Fritz is a student at NYU, who is bored with life and wants to try something new, unfortunately (to our delight), he bites off a lot more than he can chew. There's a wild ride through Harlem, cartoon orgies, drug use, and cops portrayed as pigs (literally), what else do you need. See this movie!

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

When it comes to adult animation, this is probably the movie that started it all. Ralph Bakshi treats us to the sleazy misadventures of Fritz, a horny, crafty kitty, who travels the dank, rough and tumble bowers of the big city, perpetually in search of more pussy, er, I mean other female cats to boink. Great fun, uniquely drawn, a true classic. Animal sex never looked so good.
