Excellent animation and montage shore up a plot which has a few howls, several chuckles and many smiles.

Despite the somewhat meandering nature of its plot, the film's underlying messages about social hypocrisy on all levels still has a strong bite to it, and it remains one of the more creative and daring forays in feature-length animation.

Those who consider themselves un-cool can still take pleasure in viewing this strange adult-oriented feature length cartoon, the likes of which flourished briefly in the 1970s but never became established as mainstream entertainment.

Aficionados of Crumb's work weren't enthralled by the movie when it came out, and time hasn't been kind to it.

The results, inevitably, were disappointing -- Bakshi just didn't have the money to make it right.

Time Out
January 26, 2006
Despite some ingenious effects, a generally trivial exercise that never matches the punch of the original.

Cats with cleavage? I think not.
Christopher Null
October 16, 2003
Full of animated, nude, cartoon animals and some of the most vitriolic racism (disguised as empowerment) ever put on film, Fritz the Cat is so bad that Crumb, after seeing the film, killed the character in one of his comics.

Despite the curiosity it inspires, the world's first X-rated cartoon falls flat in its first ten minutes.
