Maverick writer/director Ralph Bakshi (Heavy Traffic, Wizards) made his feature-length film debut with this audacious foray into adult-content animation, creating one of the most successful animated features of its time! Based on a legendary character created by underground comic book artist/writer R. Crumb, Fritz the Cat is a brilliant commentary on ’60s life and a “snarling satire that stubbornly refuses to curl up in anyone’s lap” (Playboy). It’s the age of awakening and Fritz, one way-cool cat and NYU student, loves to embrace every experimental experience that crosses his path. Embarking on a fantastic journey of self-discovery, he indulges in everything from multiple bedroom follies to a wild joy ride through a dangerous Harlem. But when Fritz joins a group of radically aggressive hippies, he finds himself holding the dynamite that will detonate the ultimate ’60s statement—one that could cost him his life!
