Editorial Reviews

That infamous cat and his twisted life are back! Staying within the tradition set by the audacious and racy Fritz the Cat, director-co-writer Robert Taylor takes Robert Crumb's way-cool felinecharacter from the boundary-pushing '60s to the harsh realities of Vietnam, racial riots and Watergate of the '70s in a sequel ripe with "pure silliness [and a] hip story-telling style" (Variety)! Fritz has got the post-college blues he's married to a mouthy wife who beats him constantly, and he's out of work and on unemployment! To escape his sad, nagging reality, Fritz launches himself into a psychedelic haze with a mind-blowing catnip that takes him to his eight other lives. There, he lives out fantasies as an out-of-this world astronaut, an aide to President Kissinger and worse...an orderly to Hitler! But as his star-crossed hallucinations put him on a collision course with reality, Fritz becomes a casualty just waiting to happen!

On first veiwing, after having seen the first Fritz the Cat movie, you might feel like this maligned flick was put together while everyone was stoned, however, like fine art, it leaves something with you that brings you back to it again. and it seems to this reviewer that each time you come back to it, you discover another aspect of it,although not clearly definable, draws you back again....in fact, I'm going to watch it AGAIN right now....see ya!

This cartoon reminds of some of the cartoons I watched as a kid, minus the funny nudity of cartoon animals characters. This cartoon is definitely not attended for kids. I love this cartoon, because it brought back childhood memories of cartoons back in the 70s. If you like this type of cartoons, then I will recommend the viewer to watch this cartoon. Like I said before, this cartoon is not attended for younger viewers, since it has nudity, profanity, drug use, and cartoon violence.

I remember liking this more during the 1970s when I saw it through twenty-something eyes. It's still something to marvel at, though my taste in films has evolved. Picked this for its nostalgia value and was amply rewarded with flashbacks to my youth.

A totally BIZARRE movie - much more so than Fritz The Cat. After the original - "FRITZ" - this was a disappointing letdown.

7-9-14 After watching this movie several more times, I found it better than I originally believed. It has some good music that is unfortunately not available on a separate soundtrack.

In 1959 a young Robert Crumb first created the character-Fritz the Cat. In 1972 Ralph Bakshi brought the character to the big screen in perhaps my favorite movie of all time. In 1974 Robert Taylor directed this sequel. Crumb admittedly wasn't a fan of Bakshi's film, however in the case of its sequel, to Crumb it doesn't exist. I first saw the Nine Lives when I was 17 and saw its predecessor when I was 16. In between both I read the comics. Now I can easily say that I love Crumb's comics and the first movie. However with Nine Lives, its hard to say.

PLOT: Fritz now lives on welfare with a wife and kid. He smokes pot and sits around while his 'old lady' yells at him. He then imagines what life would be like if things were different. What follows is a series of segments or shorts of Fritz's thoughts. Segment 1 Fritz talks to some guy and then gets high with his sister. Segment 2 Fritz talks to a bum who thinks he's God. Segment 3 Fritz is a soldier during WWII and he chats with Hitler. Segment 4 Fritz jokes around and angers a hippo. Segment 5 Fritz dances in front of an orchestra. Segment 6 Fritz goes to cash his welfare check and sells a toilet. Segment 7 Fritz goes into space. Segment 8 Fritz talks to Duke's ghost. Segment 9 Fritz goes to New Jersey. Segment 10 Fritz is in the sewer and has a funny encounter with Satan.

THOUGHTS: Nines Lives is all over the place and really bogs up and down. Segments go on for far longer than necessary or fail to keep the viewer's interest. While it has some good moments and even moments of pure genius, it's a terrible presentation of the character and really could've been better.

REVIEW: Oh boy, wow um. First off Nine Lives is convoluted and the general plot really makes no sense.

I remember when this film first came out... touted as the first R rated animated film. It drew lots of media attention and was the topic de jour for quite some time. Every media pundit had an opinion about "Fritz" and the films' impact on social values.
Watching it again after all these years I was surprised to see how it still has a little 'shock value". Basically, the content of the story was pretty dark and their wasnt much to say about the appeal of the characters. Still, I enjoyed watching it a remembering the uproar that it instigated. From a historical /sociological perspective it is an important film.

absolutely perfect. People now days shouldn't be so as uptight and afraid that they might offend someones great- great grandmother. I mean come on folks lighten up. It's funny, able to laugh at self and others.

This cartoon plays on many topics that were ahead of it's time! Raw, uninhibited humor at it's best! R. Crumb knows how to take one story line, and play off of it time and time again. There are subtlties that make the movie understandable and enthusiastic. Once you realize, Fritz is day-dreaming on 9 lives, these lives are how he would've rather have lived and ultimately died than have been forced to marry his wife! The faucet dripping in his eyes time and time again, is him remembering how he slipped up and got his wife pregnant. Once you realize these connections...this movie is more enjoyable each time you watch it!
